I was very disappointed with the check in. Got to the Hotel well after 3:00pm. My room wasn’t close to being ready. They told me to come back in a hour. My son was sleeping in the car and wanted to lay down. We left for an hour came back and still had to wait. I wasn’t happy at all, I didn’t cause a scene, I was very patient. I felt that they should’ve offered something, gave me a discount. But they did nothing at all. Highly disappointed.

We are very sorry for rooms not being prepared. We like many other hotels are short staffed, and working to get rooms prepared as fast as we can. Again I am very sorry.

No security at night (security lock on "back" door is non functional), the staff does NOT enforce the non smoking, bathroom tile in shower area is a safety hazard. Not recommended!

I am so very sorry. We do enforce the no smoking. We have to find what room the smoke is coming from, and if we can prove it is that room we do charge them $200, and they are asked to leave. Only bad thing is we have to prove it is that room, and with a full hotel sometimes that is hard to do. We are very sorry.

It was a nice enough property with a pool and fitness room. Breakfast area wasn't very clean though.

We are very sorry that the breakfast area was not clean. I will talk with my staff about making sure they get in there more, and get things cleaned up.

Could not get into our room because it hadn’t been cleaned yet. Check in was at 3 pm, we waited about 45 minutes. The room was clean, The bed was very comfortable. The shower in the bathroom was interesting. The water ran into the rest of the bathroom and than out the door after two showers. It just seemed like it was put together with whatever they had.

I want to apologize for the room not being ready when you arrived. Our staff has been working on some deep cleaning, so they have been a little behind. For that I fully apologize. I am also very sorry about the floor getting wet after you showered. I will be talking with our maintenance staff to see if there is something we can do to fix this. I am pleased to hear you got a comfortable nights rest. We hope you will give us another chance if your in the area.

Everything was great! Nice bedding though the pillows were too high for me to use. Breakfast was good and all staff members were friendly and helpful. My only problem was with the bathroom design. No matter how far we turned the showerhead to face the wall, the whole bathroom floor got soaked because there was no barrier/lip on the floor. There was also no floor mat to soak up the mess. Even with a towel on the floor I still walked out with wet feet. Everything else was wonderful.

I wouldn't recommend this property. The service as lacking. I reserved a room for 6. I had to go and ask for the extra set of bedding. And then ask for the 6th pillow. Not enough towels for six. I had to go back down and ask for towels for everyone. I've paid a lot less for a room and had better service and it was cleaner. The toilet ran. The paint was coming off the wall in the bathroom. The room SMELLED; it was hard to sleep and stay in there. We'll stay at a different location when we go to Adventureland the next time.

We are very sorry you had an issue with your room. Our staff works hard to make sure all our guest have a great stay. We are working on some of the bathrooms to fix them up, however we are at our busy season so we can only do so many at a time. I am also sorry about the sheets not being in the room. We used to keep them beds made, but guest were taking the linens home so we chose to not remake them each time a guest checks out. I am very sorry.
