Okay hotel. The rooms were dated. No elevator to get to our room. We had trouble with the commode twice. The first time was as soon as we got to our room. The front desk said someone would be right up, we waited an hour then went to Horgan dinner. We came back and it seemed to be fixed. The...

Well where do I begin. I bought this from Groupon for spring break to take my little cousin. Big mistake! I should of just went back to Kalahri, but I had never been so I thought what the heck. Worse choice ever. I was never so disappointed in my life. I got the room that was supposed to be for...

This is difficult, as I do not like to be overly negative, but given that it would seem our recent experience was not an outlier, I felt compelled to share. My parents booked an overnight stay at this location as a Christmas present for my two boys. The six of us showed up Monday (3/28/16) a bit early for check...

Decided to get the kids a surprise last minute Easter gift. Saw this on groupon and since we were down the road at kalahari last month, figured why not. You definitely get what you pay for. Hotel overall is old and dirty. If they are shut down all the time, you would think they could do some improvements. We got...

My sister took my niece and three of her friends here for her birthday. We arrived around 2pm and there were no rooms available (check in at 4pm). We waited till about 3:30 and there were still no rooms available (didn't make much sense if your check in is at 4pm). We went to dinner and when we came back...

I saw the bad reviews but decided it couldn't be that bad....well it was. Luckily we got there around 2 pm so the kids could swim after getting the bracelets. I heard check in could be long so I decided to hang out by the water until later. Finally around 5:30 I got in line because it didn't seem to...

As soon as we pulled into the filthy parking lot we knew how the rest of our day was going to be.. When we walked in the front lobby, the line was outrageously long as there was only one receptionist working. The men's bathroom/changing room was absolutely disgusting!!! Poop all over the toilet seat and floor, trash overflowing, floor was...

I have been in line for over twenty minutes!!! As I am nearing the front I see there is only one person checking people in. You would think on Spring Break immediately at the beginning of check, there would be another associate at the front desk. (If not more!!!). That is stupid and not good for business. We will see...

This places is the dirtiest place I've ever been to! Trash piled everywhere. Rude staff. Lifeguards on cell phones. No clean towels. Room had mouse poop on countertops. Wires hanging out of decor in the waterpark. Slides were closed Lazy river closed a few moments after getting there. I truly cant express how horrible of an experience this was!
