Got a room for my daughter’s birthday and they only give you 4 wristbands for a 6 person room...we have 4 children. They require a wristband for anyone over a year old and any adult sitting in the swim area needs a 5 dollar wrist band just to be present. The woman at the front desk was not at all friendly and they had no sheets or anything for the pull out sofa in the room. The kids had fun but it was a rip off and we won’t be having parties there again with the increase in prices.

Very nice area and the hotel is waterfront with a great pool and restaurant/ My only problem was having a room that was next to the 24 hour arcade. We did not even know there was an arcade until kids were in the room playing loud games and bowling right next to our room. I would make sure you tell them NOT BY THE ARCADE please

Not what we expected

We booked this hotel specially thinking on the water park and pool for the kids. When we arrived they told us that the main pool was closed for maintenance and we never got previous heads up on this. Very dissapointed. Hotel facilities look pretty old and outdated. Whater park facilities wasn't too bad but the water on the hot tub was very dirty (you can see particles and dirt floating around)

Bedding not very clean

Sheets were kind of worn out. Floor was a little sticky. "Water Park" area is cold, although it has 3 types of pools (cool, warm and hot). The landing pool area of the high slide was rough.

Nice hotel near the beech

Pros: Guests seem to be having fun all the time.
Cons: Don't run out of food in your restaurant
Location: Everything you would want to do in Lake country of Michigan. Great vacation area. Centrally located. Everything available at the resort.
We did enjoy our one night stay at this facility. Our 4 yr old grand daughter loved the Water Park. I did not see a sand beech only a retaining wall and some Rocks next to the water. The beech must have been under the water. Many guests were playing volly-ball, and corn bag toss as well as some guests using the lake. Great vacation spot.The view of the lake was beautiful from our balcony. The misquitos visited us after dark as the light on the balcony went on and could not be turned off? The room was clean and had adequate space. The only negative and it wasn't that important to us was the on-site restaurant ran out of food. It was the 5th of July. Actually they directed us to a great place in town called Kilkare Inn which served great food.
