We chose this hotel because of the water park attached to it - which turned out to be a bad idea. The water is not properly maintained - the chemicals are off - causing a skin rash for our family (folliculitis)... More

Stayed in a room with two beds. I thought my sheets felt like sandpaper, my travel partner thought I was being dramatic. Otherwise, sleep was sound and room was quiet. Easy check in and out. Good stay overall.
