The water park needed some heavy construction work done.

I loved that we could see the bridge from our room!! I wasn’t happy that we asked for a “balcony” and what we had was a sort of porch that in the morning had a million people outside of our door to the outside beach area. It was incredibly uncomfortable for us both. Definitely would come back but I would have to check in in person to make sure we don’t get duped again on our room. We are coming back this weekend and are choosing to stay at another hotel due to the weird experience we had there. Sorry

The room felt dirty there was food under the bed. the door did not lock by it self you had to shove it close hard. The view made up for it was spectacliar. Also most of the water park was closed.

Didn't get the room I'd booked - I reserved a room with a balcony and all we got was a lake view. Also there was no Internet when we arrived. Desk clerks explained that sometimes happens when the hotel is full. I was traveling on business, arrived late after an exhausting day, and REALLY needed to read and respond to emails etc. The prebagged hotel breakfast consisted of one small apple, one small granola bar, and a bottle of water. If I were rating this hotel on a one to five star basis, I'd give it a 2. Very disappointing.

False advertisement. It advertises a water park and continental breakfast. The two big slides in the water park are shut down the kiddie pool area water is freezing cold. The continental breakfast is a bottle of water an apple and a granola bar. We came here because of the water park in the large slides and when we asked for some of our money back because they didn't have all the amenities available that was shown on the website the manager refused to make anything right with us. We were very disappointed in this property. It was dirty disgustingly dirty especially the bathrooms there was holes in the walls and stains on the beds. Would never say here again and do not recommend anyone to stay here. Management was not only not accommodating but very rude about it as well. He lied to us about several different things saying that they changed the website when they didn't. I read reviews on the place after the fact unfortunately and read that a lot of people recently have had the same issues.

I did not like being so far away from the elevator and front desk. The view of the bridge was not good according to the name of the hotel.
