The Holiday Inn Arbor Lakes features an indoor "water park" rather than a typical pool. It's small but well designed, with two 3-story water slides, a lily-pad crossing, a 4-sided basketball goal and plenty of soft basketballs in the main pool. There is also a kiddie pool that is about 8 inches deep and features three slides, a waterfall, water cannons, and a few geysers. Waterpark passes are included in weekend hotel stays (it's open only on weekends) and there is a concession stand, bar, and plenty of seating for kids and adults. Adjacent to the pool is a small arcade on the second level. The hotel features a Venice theme; the pool area is designed to feel like a small city block in Venice.
We enjoyed the rest of the hotel as much as the pool. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room was large, clean, and very comfortable. Somewhat to our surprise, the hotel restaurant was wonderful! We had planned to eat at one of the many restaurants that surround the hotel, but we stayed in and were very satisfied with the quality, portions, and selection on the menu.
