I meant to write this review a while ago - we stayed at the Adventureland Inn on September 18, 2011 (a Sunday night). We had a room that walked right out to the pool. The room was nice, the pool was nice, and we had fun. However, a word of warning - if you aren't staying here at a busy...

We stayed in the Adventureland Inn for three nights in order to attend a state convention. I brought along my kids (13 and 2) and everyone had an excellent time. The rooms were spacious and well-cleaned. We had an upstairs poolside suite with a balcony overlooking the pool area. This included a bedroom with two double beds, a bathroom, a...

We recently stayed in a suite at the Adventureland Inn for two nights (along with other family members booked in other rooms) with the purpose of celebrating our Granddaughter's 2nd birthday. The rooms are overpriced costing close to $200 a night. They would not honor are AARP card which I found perplexing. The suite was ok, bathroom was small, Keurig...

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...
