There are many things to love about this place. The retro look is very cool and the pool areas are great with a water slide, lazy river, and movies at night. The only real issue here is that you have to pay for your tubes to use the lazy river and hence carry them around which can be a hassle. The bowling alley is great but pricey at $12 a game plus additional for shoes, a little pricey. The arcade area has great games with a ticketless system which is convenient not to carry around all the tickets for prizes. The shuttle bus to the parks are timely but very crowded on opening and closing. The lobby staff was excellent but unengaged in other positions. The food court prices are very expensive for average food, $9 for a burger and I would prefer the taste of a Whopper for half the price. The employees working there were very unengaged. The rooms were new and clean but the walls are very thin so you will hear your neighbors if you are trying to sleep in. Overall I would stay here again (just not eat here) because you do get to go into the parks 1 hour early, are close to the parks via shuttle, and have a great pool area.
