The pizza place inside had only one person working on a Saturday evening. People were calling deliveries outside to get food for there families and the hotel lost a lot of money by not having the staff.

We were snowed in - No travel advised. So I inquired at front desk to stay another night. The rate went up $160 for a 2nd night. They should be ashamed. People were forced out in a blizzard - because who can afford that - Not Me

Thank you for your feedback. I apologize that there was weather during your stay. Your inquiry for the second night was on New Years Eve. We do have a very large function, The New Years Eve Bash that was on 12/31/2018. The travel advisory was lifted at 11:00 AM. I apologize that we were not able to match your rate from the day before as rates are based on availability. The New Years Eve Bash is a well attended function annually. Once again, thank you for you feedback. We hope you had safe travels.

Hello, I can help you with your questions. Watiki is operated separately but we can offer discounted passes for being a La Quinta hotel guest. Pending on your stay dates, the cost does fluctuate as the waterpark has different seasons as well. Tickets are required for any Sliders 3 and up. You are able to receive 2 spectator bands free of charge for your room per day during your stay. For more information you can visit the park website as well.

"The first floor seems to be more updated."
"You can leave a room tip and that helps the folks that clean the room as they probably don't make enough anyway. They do a good job. "
