Nice location. Very clean large rooms, restaurants and grounds. Staff was courteous and attentive. Although we weren't able to participate, there was much mountain biking activity. Very much recommend.

I was staying here for a wedding nearby. The front desk staff was extremely accommodating and really provided excellent customer service - they were friendly and helpful when it came to early check-ins and switching rooms. I mostly dealt with Cheryl, who was so sweet and even took the time to learn my name. Everyone who worked there was really... More

Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Cheryl at the front desk whom handled our accommodations in a friendly and professional manner. (Even upgrading our suite, giving us an incredible view as well as a level of comfort we hadn't expected) For the short time... More

I went with my family a couple of weeks ago to Mountain Creek and we really enjoyed it. The water park and rides were amazing. But the most important thing was the customer service. Ms. Cheryl was very helpful and on the behalf of my family, thank you very much. I'm looking forward to coming back.
