We stayed here for my daughters birthday and held her birthday party at the Wild Woods Water park. The birthday package was great! The pizza was surprisingly good, the hostess was very attentive and came by often to ensure we had everything we needed. We had the party area for 2 hours, and they advised us right away to locate...

My two sons and I stayed one night. It was pretty expensive for one night, but it included four water park passes and a free pizza. They loved the waterpark, but the breakfast was terrible. All the food was cold and my son almost ate a moldy donut. We will stay there again but we won't eat there.

Smrathman, I am happy to see that your family enjoyed the hotel and water park. I will speak with our F&B team to discuss your breakfast comments. I am surprised by the issue with the donut as those are delivered fresh each week. Thank you again for your feedback. Greg Pike

Been here probably 25 times and still go back! The room was comfy but the bathroom could've been cleaned a little better. Water park was fun, my kids always have a blast! The food was great, sometimes it's a hit or miss but this time it was a hit!

If you expect to sleep while here, you must insist on a room as far away from the parking lot as possible if you're here during temperate weather (probably not a problem in the winter). The restaurant across the parking lot has a license to play loud music until midnight, any night they choose. The hotel has not been successful...

The people who work the front desk were great and when I complained offered to have my room redone.

We specifically booked this hotel and location for the waterpark. After staying in other hotels with slides that didn't open until the late afternoon, we had a huge amount of skepticism about the quality of the waterpark. Wow! Yes, it's not one of the biggest ones, but for the amount of space they have, it will knock your socks off!...

As a first time visitor to this water park, I was highly disappointed with our hotel room. It was very dirty... The toilet was filthy on and the base on the floor.
