I loved the location and the water park was great. The room we got 1206 felt very small and it was said to be a city view but it was just facing the freeway and parking lot, I thought for $1000 the view would have been a bit better. I felt a little claustrophobic because the door to the patio was in the closet and it would have been nice to be able to go on the patio in a very small room. Over all location was fantastic, the staff was 5-star so friendly, and very easy parking and check-in, the elevators were good, not long waits and the store inside was great.

Ok hotel. Carpets need replacing (dirty and smelly) and the rooms are not the cleanest. The beds are alright but the pillows are literally terrible. All 8 pillows felt like a pillowcase filed with golfballs. Old hotel so thin walls. Could hear every door open and slam and the people above us walking around. For the location decent price. Highly they have an amazing pirate ship pool and splash area for kids. Ages 3-8 it’s perfect pool space and the staff are friendly and do a wonderful job.
