My family stayed here over the July 4th weekend. The room was nice but noisy until the pool area closed. We had a balcony room overlooking one of the pool areas. The pools were nice. There were a couple of small waterslides, and the water was warm. We brought our own breakfast food and did not eat at the resort....

We have stayed at the Adventureland Inn at different times over the past 10 years with the last time being 5 years ago. Since then, the hotel has renovated a great number of rooms as well as the adjacent hallways. This includes: new paint, new carpet, new furniture in the rooms including flat screen TVs and larger refrigerators than in...

We stayed at Adventureland Inn back in February 2011. My children enjoyed the pool. Rooms were nice and clean, however the food wasnt very appetizing at all, definitely not worth the price. But everything else was good and we will back, we will not eat there.

WOW!! I stayed here when I was a child, and I remember it being fairly decent- now it is not so good!! The food was bad!! The hotel is aging badly, all the rooms need remodeled!! The hotel was VERY EXPENSIVE!! The waterpark inside was a couple of slides- It was definately not worth $150.00 what we paid for this!!!...

We stayed at Adventureland Inn in August and loved being able to park at hotel and take free trolley bus to the park. We waited 3 minutes or less each time we wanted a ride to Adventureland Park and were dropped off right at the front gates. We have a 3 year old and a 6 year old and it...

We stayed for a weekend with extended family (lots of kids ages 12-6). I was concerned after reading the reviews. If you are looking for a luxury hotel, this is not it, but for a fun family getaway in a clean hotel, this is it. The pools were clean and all the kids (and adults) had a good time on...

Actually made reservations with the hotel instead of online, this was our first mistake. The price quoted on the phone and what was actually charged was almost double. The $200.00 per night price was not worth the visit. The room had mold in the bathroom and on the ceiling, had to go to desk to get toilet paper within an...

Our daughter & family (grandsons ages 5 & 4) came home to Iowa from Texas for a week. Wanting her children to experience Adventureland as she did when she was a child, we spent the day at the park & then checked in to the Inn for the night. We had a pool level family suite, so were able to...

The only good thing about this hotel is the proxemity to adventureland and the trolley. The rooms are pretty gross, the food is horrible. The pool isn't bad...although it is like a big sauna, so not real 'refreshing'. And the retirees that work there definitely do NOT want to be there...talk about grumps. Our check in process took way too...

The best thing about the hotel was the staff and the trolley to Adventureland. The hotel was outdated and not worth the price. I would equate the hotel room woth something I would expect at Motel 6 or Super 8. Next time will stay at the Best Western which was cheaper and a lot nicer.
