First of all I reserved 4 rooms at what I thought was 119 per night which was really 149.99. I decided not to let that ruin the weekend plans with the family only to find out the nightly rate ended up being 172 per room making this the most expensive one night stay I have ever had. We were given $5 off the water park coupons good for all in the party from the desk clerk. Upon arriving at the park they would not honor these coupons causing more distress. We arrived for breakfast the next morning to find miniature sausage and biscuits, cellophane wrapped in a paper plate and bagels in a plastic bag. Poorest hotel breakfast I have ever experienced and I have experienced many poor hotel breakfast. The TV in our room would only get half the channels and looked like a 1962 tube TV. The ice machine/vending area was covered in about 10 million mosquitoes (and I am not stretching this). You asked and I gave you the truth as best I can. This hotel charges like a 3 star and delivers like a 1/2 star.
