Loved it! Our kids loved it! The water park was the perfect size for our kids. I could see how it would be boring for kids over 12, but ours loved it. It wasn't too big were you could get lost. I was happy with how clean it was. The price was perfect. Staff was great and even gave us our room super early. We will be back!

Nice view from room

Staff was rude. We were under the impression that we had 2 double queen beds that fit 4 people. We really ended up wit 2 full beds that were very uncomfortable.

Pros: The reception personnel were helpful. Rashid went above and beyond in being friendly and helpful. He was fun to talk to and super to deal with.
Cons: Having double beds as standard and charging to upgrade to queen. My husband didn't realize that or we might have upgraded--even though it is stupid.
Location: The location was fine even though it took us awhile to get oriented and find the other restaurants in the area.
We were satisfied with this hotel. There were two things that could have been better. They need to get rid of the double beds and not charge for "upgrading" to queen beds. It seems that most hotels have queen beds almost all of the time without raising the price. Also, we had asked for adjoining rooms because there were 7 of us. The grandparents, one parent, and 4 teenagers. They said they didn't have any available. We had requested this when we made the reservations but --who knows!!!

VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!

The picture online showed a beautiful view of the water, but, when you look out onto balcony, you see water and the heavy, stopped traffic on the road to Cedar Point. Also, the screen on the balcony had so many dead bugs on it that it was not a pleasing view at all. We actually never sat out on the balcony b/c of this. The outside pool had sediment on the bottom, and there was dog/pigeon poop on the sidewalk and lawn leading up to the pool. Definitely, a health hazard. We didn't use the pool as a result. When we got into our room, the refrigerator was dirty, and there was ice build up inside. The carpet had 2 dark spot on it, and the space between the 2 beds had not been vacuumed for quite awhile. For this, we paid a high price for staying there. This was the first vacation we took in 7 years, b/c financial reasons. Disappointing can't describe this hotel. NEVER will stay or recommend this place to anyone! PJ
