This is my second visit in the past few years. This was also a good one. Free wifi and a very clean room at my basic needs. Having a full service restaurant on site is a bonus. Nowadays, many hotel brands offer up the now typical free breakfast but it's limited in many instances. During the weekdays, the restaurant opens...

I was very impressed by this hotel: the service, the accommodations, the food, and the water park. I decided to take my three kids here for the night just for some fun before school starts up again. When we arrived in our room (which was a standard double queen), I realized it had a connecting door to another room. Because...

This was a very nice Express. Staff was very friendly and the rooms were comfortable and clean. What more could you ask for. With a water park at the hotel it was very busy but not bother for us. Would stay here again.

This was the worse experience I've ever dealt with. The staff was extremely rude, we didn't get our room until after check in, which caused us to be late for a wedding. I have a toddler, they didn't offer to us we could use the water park but we found out from others they did. I will never recommend this...

We picked this hotel for the waterpark and it did not disappoint! Our 4 year old had a blast on the big waterslides and our two year old loved the little slides. The room is average....so perfectly fine:). I don't believe breakfast is included, which is a little disappointing. Just saves the hassle of having to get packed up and...

Kelly, Thank you for picking us! Our water park has fun things for all ages! We are so happy that you had a great time. Breakfast is not included as we are a full service hotel with a restaurant. We cook our breakfasts fresh to order. You can add breakfast to your room as an "add-on" if you wish, which...

How many hotels have an incredible waterpark attached to it?! We have travelled to more than a hundred hotels with a little slide in the pool at best, and this one has everything?! We're talking about a kid's area, BB pool, lazy river, toilet bowl, speed slide and a raft ride. That's the same that you get at the outside...

A bit pricey for the room, but spacious and very clean. We had our 4 year olds birthday party at the water park. The kids loved it. Ages ranged from 4 to 10 for kids and all enjoyed it. Great water slides! Unable to bring outside food into the pool area so it was nice to have a room near...

For being a Holiday Inn - we was quiet disappointed. My husband came down for work and we brought our grand daughters with so we could use the water park.

We stayed here for a wedding June 2016 and you would think an indoor waterpark would be open in June, not so much.

“Suites with interior bedrooms have less noise from the hallways. We always choose the top floor so we don't hear people walking above us.”
