Cons. Water park was a little dirty. It seemed as if they attempted to make up for it by over-bleaching/chlorine.

2Poor
Anonymous, Aug 2016

Pros. Nothing.

Cons. I booked and paid for a room 2 months in advance. When I showed up, they were overbooked and they put me in a dirty hotel across the street. No refund in the price difference. No concessions. We had to cross a busy street with small children to get to the water park which was the only reason I booked this hotel. Big mistake. STAY AWAY!!!

Anonymous, May 2016

Pros. The room was very nice, fairly big with updated bathroom. Also, right across the street from the star line fairy.

Cons. I got a "lake view" room. Ooo Ned the blinds, and had to bend my head around to catch a glimpse of the lake. The hotel isn't on the same side of the street even as the lake. Had to walk across the street to another hotel for the breakfast.
