3.9 Poor
The stay was cheap, and they are pet friemdlu which were nice pluses. However, The building is run down, exposed electrical wires on building exterior, wholes in exterior stucco and the area around the building was not cleaned. We selected this place because we stayed here a couple of years ago and kids loved it. Not sure what happened since then, it’s really too bad. Note on pool hours: they display and have you sign a form with these pool hours. However the pool gets shut down 15 minutes earlier. A bit of a disappointment with already limited pool hours… and not customer focused.
A
2.5 Poor
Pros:The suite was big
Cons:Staff could have been better. Repeatedly asked them to talk to the neighbors to keep the loud club music down. They did NOTHING! The guy sat on his butt answered the phone and acted like he cared but did not even go to the room and ask the other guests to quiet down. I know this because he didn’t even realize there was a sign on the guests door that said “Kiss the Miss Goodbye”. My family ended up leaving the hotel that night. Plus it was really awesome for my family to watch a drug deal go down in the parking lot. Not family friendly at all. Pool needed to be cleaned because there were bugs floating in it.
A
6.5 Okay
Pros:My children love the indoor water park and I love the area for younger and older kids.
Cons:Things are starting to look worn and needs re-painted. Also, there was mold in the shower on the ceiling.
A
10.0 Wonderful

3.1 Poor
Pros:Old, tired and filthy
B
7.3 Good
Pros:Tiki bar is always welcome. Kids, of course, had a blast in the waterpark. Front desk handled my hodgepodge of booking details without a hiccup - Brian is awesome to deal with.
Cons:Staff was *VERY* strict this time. We have been coming to this hotel for years and never heard this much yelling & whistle-blowing. Not sure if there's been an incident here recently or what. My 4yr old was going down the water slides w/o issue all day long then halfway through the day got kicked off for being too little. Every time we come it seems more and more of the pirate ship is broken down and not functioning, this time it was the tunnel through the middle which my kids have always enjoyed in the past. The water was pretty cold compared to previous years as well. I saw staff taking towels out of the "dirty towels here" bins and re-folding/rolling them to stack on the shelves.
A
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Love the refrigerator and microwave. Love the water slides and pool area. It wasn't too cold lime some hotels. The tiled walk in shower was really nice. Awesome shower head.
Cons:I wish I would have known the hot tub wad broken when I made the reservation.
A
9.0 Wonderful
Pros:Easy access, good price. Nice bathrooms.
Cons:Pillows could be better.
