The hotel was very impressive looking when we first arrived. The awe is short lived when you start hearing the prices for things. Check in was pretty easy and the cart for your luggage was easy to use. The hotel gives you wrist bands that have chips in them that connect all purchases to your room. The wrist bands were great because you didn't have to bring your wallet anywhere in the hotel but was uncomfortable to me when I was sleeping. When we arrived in our room it was ok but had a feel of being a little old. The ac did not work properly and had to be set on 62 for the room to feel like 74. Once we put our stuff away we went down to check out the water park. The water park was nice and areas for all ages. My son's are 3 and 1 and both enjoyed the time. If you don't swim be aware the temperature is kept at 84 so it may get a little worm. The kids with diapers do wear diapers but they are swim diapers, if that makes a difference. The big tube rides were really fun but with small children we had to trade off watching the kids. The food wasn't bad but for the price it could have been better. Once we were done the first day the night began. The mattress was uncomfortable and the room didn't cool off. The tv was older and didn't have the best picture quality. The shower made noises when adjusting the water. We did not try the quest adventure because our children were to young. The bunk bed mattresses were really firm to the point where my 3 year old complained about them. Once the long night was over my wife said let's eat breakfast at the hotel restaurant. My wife tried to persuade me by telling me it was a breakfast buffet. I can't think of anything I want to do less then eat a giant breakfast before a day at a water park but we went anyways. The food was good but the buffet was like $13 a person and during the breakfast time they have a robotic show at the house in the lobby so the kids were up and down all breakfast. After breakfast it was another day in the water park. We never tried the bar and grill in the hotel because it seemed really pricey for food and drinks. Last thing is capacity. We were under half capacity when we stayed and it still seemed crowded so I can't imagine what 75-100% would be like. The idea of the hotel is good but it just seemed a little old and way to pricey for what you get.
