We used a Groupon for our stay. The front desk person was very helpful and accommodating. Our rooms were clean and the bathrooms were clean as well. The staff that we met were all very nice and friendly. We would return.

My family and I checked in this hotel simply for the water park inside. Upon checking in, the front desk employees were not very friendly. Possibly due to someone calling off. Never once did they smile at me. Checking in was rather easy. They didn't bother telling me where my room was, just pointed to a map. My family ended...

We have been going on and off the last 14 years, always has been okay although aged. We have gone every year for the past 5 years for a two night getaway during the week in the winter. Just to sit back, hit the casino and go out to eat. This last time we checked into our room (way on...

This was a last minute Groupon getaway. The room wasn't cleaned very well-- found a Dorito at the edge under the bed. The room smelled funny. The tv was old, didn't have very good reception. definitely got what I paid for. Rooms in desperate need of remodeling and renovations.

The entire complex smells like old water. Dead flies in the kids pool. Water damage throughout. No updates anywhere (yellowish bed sheets that used to be white, filthy carpet, leaky ceilings, etc.). There are other, visibly better lodging options in the area. Please pick any one of them before staying at this hotel. I have traveled frequently for a variety...

We were lured to this hotel as part of a time share pitch. No problem with that, however, we were told that that they had just had a GRAND re-opening and that the hotel had been remodeled. Blah, blah, blah, long story short, two rooms have been renovated for the purpose of selling what this hotel will look like under...

Good thing is Kids loved the place despite all you are about to read. The inhouse Pizza place was quite good. As parents this place was extremely disappointing in many other catergories.Tiles in most of the pools are loose missing or broken with sharp edges exposed. We could not find ice in hotel. Room smelled terrible. In a water park...

Purchased the room through a third party, for a steal rate. Go to the room at 4:30, and were greeted by a young man with some type of twitch going on with his face. He was very nice, professional, and made sure all was ok during my check-in. I asked him, if he could upgrade my room, and he did,...

I purchased a Groupon to stay at this resort and thought I was getting a good deal; I wish I could have my money refunded. I would not stay here even if it was free. It was old, run-down dirty and in terrible need of repair. The tub did not drain so we were showering in a pool of dirty...
