We booked because of the lazy river which was nice. Would have been nice if we could bring in our own floatation devices because not everyone could use the floating rings provided. Towels stayed stocked at the pool but questionable as to if the pools were treated and if the chairs and tables were wiped down. To hotel overall was clean, but we had hair on our beds and in the shower(assuming cleaning staff, which is understandable) The bar was a nice bonus and sad that breakfast and bike rental not available due to COVID. Beware, you need to get quarters for laundry room and neither hotel nor souvenir shop in the hotel can provide you with quarters. Would have been nice if front desk informed us of the no cleaning service situation because we had to place our garbage and towels on the outside of our doors for collection and then retrieve fresh items at the front desk. Front desk stays super busy so avoid check-in and check out times. Parking gets congested but it is free. BEWARE: there is a deal where reps are trying to sell you park tickets or offer free breakfast or lunch to participate in a 90 min presentation.(they take a $20 cash deposit claiming they will refund with an additional $140, if you complete the presentation. The presentation usually goes over 90 min. Don't waste your time, enjoy your vacation) Parks require reservations, anyone trying to sell fix without reservation is a scam. I would consider a return to Red Lion.
