This was our second time at this hotel, we were there in August of 2013 and March 2014. We stayed 2 nights for an affordable break with our kids, aged 5 & 7. The water park is great for their ages and this is the main reason we stayed there. The opening hours are limited during the week but they extended them during the school break. However, it might be time to expand the water park area. There is a kiddie side and a deeper side, maybe 4 feet deep, this is where the two large slides end. Bathers are permitted in this area but must keep a distance from where the sliders come splashing out. Another pool area would be more comfortable to spread out in but it is still a very nice water park. Even a hot tub for adults would be a nice addition. Lifeguard surveillance is very good, the young girls are serious and attentive. The kids just love it. Older kids might not get such a kick out of it though, we noticed a certain age group enjoying it and they were all under 15 or so. Plattsburgh is popular for cross border shopping with Canadians but during our summer visit we explored the waterfront of Plattsburgh and the beach area. We ate at the Naked Turtle which was reminiscent of Key West with its marina view, without the travel and price! The hotel staff are super friendly and helpful, never hesitant to assist. The rooms are nice but could be recarpeted. The TV channels are abundant and cater to the Canadian tourists (like us) with news feeds from our local stations. There is no real need to leave the hotel, there are 2 restaurants on site which offer coupon discounts to guests. There is a Brewing Pub as well, we did not get to eat there this time but we would like to next visit. The Perkins Restaurant is very family friendly and priced right. The continental breakfast included saved us a bundle. It was plentiful and well stocked all morning. There were boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, sausage gravy and biscuit, cereals, oatmeal, several juice choices, yogurt, pastries, toast, bananas, a waffle making station, coffee, tea, hot chocolate and more. There is a rush between 8-9 AM with limited seating but a place opens up eventually. They even set up a little colouring area for the kids. The room is bright and spacious. Dogs are permitted at this hotel and this did not pose any problems. The only thing is our room window faced an outdoor enclosed court where dogs are permitted to run around freely and safely and also relieve themselves. From our window we could see some of the waste but the dog owners should have picked it up. Seeing as some people don't, the hotel should have someone scoop up periodically. We are pet lovers so we don't object to dogs being dogs but old droppings will get smelly. We haven't brought our dog yet, as we are concerned about him barking if we leave him in the room. You must crate your dog when you leave him unattended in the room. There is free coffee and water in the entrance all the time! There are 2 computers available in the lobby also. The other jewel at this hotel is their arcade! In the basement is a wonderful and very affordable arcade with a 2 lane bowling alley and glow in the dark mini-putt golf totally themed for kids! Our younger child did not really enjoy the mini-putt because it is in the dark and there is an underwater theme throughout with some underwater sounds which sound a bit scary for a 5 yr old. But next year she will be over it I'm certain. The adults can have fun in the arcade too! You buy tokens which, as I mentioned, were very affordable (50 tokens for 10$ or 20 for 5$) and each game requires between 1 and 4 tokens, only a few were 4 though. Every machine dispenses tickets at the end of the game and depending how you scored, you won more or less. Then the kids can accumulate their tickets and spend them at a little "store" in the arcade for various prizes! It is so much fun for the kids to get to spend their winnings for little (and some big) toys. There was a lot to do there. It is situated in a mall area, Walmart within walking distance as well as other stores and restaurants. A Five Guys opened across the street. I found it a little cold in the corridors which while walking to the water park in bathing suits and light cover ups can get cold. The grounds have an abandoned area in the back, there is evidence of an outdoor batting cage and water bumper cars, a boarded up min-golf area and some other non-functioning activities. It looks like it was a real family centered type of place at one time, even more than it is now. It would be awesome if they reopened all the outdoor attractions one day! We did not use the fitness/spa center at all but we saw that there are group exercise classes available as well. In the meantime we highly recommend this place. If you are a student with valid ID, mention it at time of booking. You will be entitled to a military rate which is quite reduced. Bon Voyage!
