We had such a great time! I brought my entire family here for an early Thanksgiving celebration and first thing, we were able to get into our room immediately! It is their slow season, but they had all our keys ready to go! The water 'park' was definitely more than just the water slide shown on the pictures online. There was a shallow kiddie pool with some spraying features, a seperate calmer pool, a HUGE hot tub, and a lazy river. Unfortunately, there was a breaker out for the lazy river so it had no current! The phone didn't work either which was unfortunate when the towels ran out. They also had offered a pool side bar online, but when we arrived got sad news that they had to close it due to the lack of a liquor license. We spent a good three hours at the pool before we realized the restaurant, Lakeside, attached was offering 50 cent drafts and free buffalo wings from 4-6pm. There was a confusion about the buffalo wings. They did not tell us at first that they were only for those who were buying drinks. The hotel I work at has a reception with appetizers from Bennigan's next door, but it is for everyone with no restrictions as such. Anyways, we were able to have dinner there for all 36 of us, which went over real well! After dinner, they opened the breakfast dining room for us so we could hang out, play cards, snack, etc at no cost. Around 11pm, one of my cousins realized the restaurant next door had a guest dj and karaoke! That was the best part of our trip hands down even though they stopped karaoke at about midnight after only 5 songs were sang total! Bummer for sure! My only other concern was that I requested no authorization on my debit card which held all of my family's rooms until arrival and I had neary $300 in authorizations. Other than a few glitches here and there the hotel itself was amazing. It had do much for us to do even in November. We decided we wanted to return in the summer months when we could utilize the outdoors and beach access!
Lakeside rooms have balconies! You could wake up to the sun rising out your balcony door!
