We're so sorry that your experience didn't meet your expectations. Occasionally same-day reservations do take longer to input into our system. We'll also check over our thermostats to ensure that our systems are functioning properly

We liked the fact had 2 pools, and the game room. Game room could have been opened more convenient hours during the day, not just evening times

Thank you for the feedback, and we're glad that you enjoyed the resort. Unfortunately, AdventureZone arcade is only open in the evening until the summer when we're open throughout the day.

We had a great experience. We had traveled several hours with a two year old and a five year old. Although the computer had not updated accommodations available, the staff bent over backwards (especially Jolynn) to make our family comfortable. The kids spent nearly two hours in the pool and were ready to fall asleep as soon as we got back to our room. I highly recommend Adventureland Inn for anyone traveling through this area!

I was disappointed with the experience as they did not let us know in advance that the hotel was being remodeled. They had me park in the back next to the door to my room. Unfortunately, to access my room on the second floor, I had to walk through hallways full of cabinets and other construction materials. It was like walking through a maze. Did not see how to access and elevator, so we had to climb the stairs with the luggage. When we made it to our room, we found out the TV did not work. They said they would send a maintenance person, but it was 10:00 p.m. and I did not want to stay up and wait. When I expressed my concerns to management, they offered me an upgrade or a refund. They were polite and understanding. Once, the hotel remodel is complete, I am sure it will be a lot better experience.

Fun for Kids

The hotel offers two pool areas for the kids that have easy access from rooms. There is a nice but overpriced game room with limited hours. The building is older. The rooms are nicer but there were remnants of past guests and leaky faucets.

Good family fun

Pros: Close restaurants
Off season weeknight was great time to go. Our family of 4 had the pool and hot tub to ourselves. Nice updated rooms. Multiple pools and game rooms, lots of fun. Pools temperature was great, even heaters on in the cool morning. Walking distande to many restaurants and a truck stop. Close to casino, adventureland park and Bass Pro Shop.
