We recently stayed here for a convention at the adjacent convention center. The hotel is easy to find and located a short drive from many area restaurants and activities. Rooms were quiet and comfortable. Large parking structure was very convenient. Work out area had several machines and free weights, though it was a little cramped space wise. There is also...

As a business traveler, I've roomed in many hotels. This is, by far, one of the worst hotels I've used. Wifi was horrible. I repeat, horrible! Many times the internet was unusable. Speed test revealed it was slower than dial up. I had to use cell service, which was lightening fast in comparison. For the (over) price of the hotel,...

I had read some mixed reviews and didn't know what to expect when I opened the door to the room. Knowing this resort catered to famiilies with kids of all ages, I almost was expecting to find a worn out, overused room. There were scratches on one painted wall that I'm sure some kid or exuberant partyer caused, but other...

Great time. The cabana is worth the purchase. We always eat somewhere else as oppose to on site. Short lines for all the attractions. Stayed in a family deluxe suite which was nice. The first night the master shower only had warm water. The next day only cold water. Called the front desk and maintenance was there quick. Though he...

When my husband first mentioned staying here I immediately went to Tripadvisor to check the reviews. After reading review after review, we debated for over a week whether we should try it or not. With hesitation we booked a room the night before our planned arrival. I must admit, it was a nice surprise! We arrived around 5 o'clock and...

My teenaged son spotted the water slide from the road and insisted we stay there. Surprised at how affordable it was ( price for the night included indoor and outdoor water parks) Definitely plan on bringing the rest of the family back. Amazed at how great the staff is including the life guards Everyone was polite and friendly

This place was a lot of fun. It would be more fun with kids, but we enjoyed ourselves a lot. It wasn't overcrowded and it was cleaner than I expected. We did choose to eat at the Thirsty Miner. The food was pretty good, but I was expecting more variety for the lunch menu. For breakfast and dinner, it was...
