A big thank you to Mandy for above and beyond for our family. Best service always from this location. Also a shout out to Doug from maintenance for great service. Both names mentioned deserve recognition for heir service. We come 7-10 times a year and will continue to come with this kind of service.

We went in late winter/early spring season so we didn't do the outside activities. Hotel was very clean, appealing decor, attentive and helpful staff. Lots of nice free perks for kids and families! Walls keep room noise out, but we could hear the room above us often. The service in the restaurant was lacking, but the food was good and...

We had a family event planned. While the staff is very friendly, the restaurant service was awful. The food came out different from the order. Our take out was all wrong. The waitress was new and said they had checked our order....when we checked it she had to go back 3 times to get a simple 2 person order corrected....

We visited- fun, nice place to visit! So many of my friends never heard of it! Highly recommended! My two cents to add to the awesomeness is: add a higher up lock on hotel doors so my toddler can't sneak out. Add a sign to your nature center. Limit the tickets into the indoor swimming center. Add more Dots ice...

We ate breakfast there. Our server named Allison was great! She was friendly and had a nice smile. We ordered from the menu and enjoyed our food. One would think cooking an egg to order would be easy, but all too often it is not cooked correctly. My eggs were cooked exactly the way I ordered them. The building is...

I am not convinced by going there that Honey Creek is actually worth all the hype that it seems to have. Seems not as exciting as it claims nor is the staff very well trained or helpful at times with one exception of a staff member named Val. If not for her my stay here would've been terrible.

The room was ok. The water park was nice except for it was not open long. Check out is 11, the water park park opened at 10. The hotel refused late checkout. Other water park hotels allow late check out or open the water park early. Overall, the staff was not accommodating.

Honey Creek Resort was a great location for our family trip. Our kids, all under the age of 9, loved the water park. Everything was clean and well maintained. The resort was beautiful. We can't wait to go back in the summer.
