Won’t be staying again
The inside does NOT reflect the outside updates. This hotel could use a complete renovation. Adding it to my “never stay again” list.

6/10 Good

All in all it’s a great place. In the indoor splash park is good. The Mexican restaurant was amazing and that includes the staff and food. The room was good but could have been a little more clean. After all said I look forward to bringing my family back!

Not happy with our stay!
One of the guests could walk stairs so changed room to bottom floor and we were charging another $70.00😡The bathroom stool was loose from the floor 😞 and no handles. They didn't have any help to change the sheets so they gave us the sheets and towels and had to do it ourselves 😡Will probably stay at different hotel next time we come through. Robbie Dahl
