“Great weekend getaway!”
Reviewed 8 February 2010

The room we stayed in was one of the two bedroom suites, which worked out great for our family of 4. The room was very clean and comfortable! The waterpark was a lot of fun and I really like the fact that it's open early in the morning on Saturday and Sunday. Action City is also a blast. And I can't say enough about the breakfast. Very good food and I was very impressed with the staff. They kept everything filled at breakfast despite the fact that it was a zoo down there! Great job!

I would like to recommond that the water temperature and the air temperature in the waterpark area be warmer, we were all pretty cold. Other than that it was pretty fun my 12 year old got bored after a couple of hours tho, there isn't a ton for his age of kids to do.

My husband and I along with my friend and her boyfriend visited the resort in Jan. 2010. The waterpark and arcade were both awesome. While they were a bit small compared to others we've been to they made up in quality. The indoor go carts go SUPER fast and are very fun, the rock climbing wall and laser tag were also very fun. Food was great and plentiful in options (Orange Julius and DQ on premises). Room was nicely decorated and clean.

HOWEVER, we had room 128 which is on the first floor right near the lobby. The lobby is cuts the main first floor hallway in half. The way they set up their resort was very poorly done. There is only one hallway on the first floor and it connects the water park on one end and Action City (arcade) on the other. All first floor room doors open directly to his hallway. All day up until about 11-12pm at night and then starting at 6am little kids were running and screaming all up and down this hallway and adults were also standing around and talking in the hallway as well (less respectable ones screaming and yelling at their kids regardless of who was trying to sleep in the room right next to where they were standing). It sounded like the people above us were stomping around, but we later figured out that this was the sound of little kids running up and down the staircase in the main lobby. Also it was difficult to find a place to sit in the morning for breakfast. The breakfast itself was delicious but the kids kept running up and down the main staircase and the breakfast “helpers” that worked for the hotel didn’t keep the kids from sticking their hands directly into the food bowls over and over.

Overall, horrible, horrible layout and planning. If the kids had been controlled better and the layout better it would have been a perfect experience. We might go again; if we do we will request the top floor at the end of the hallway.

We had a group of about 12 adults & 10 kids. We were in town for a hockey tournament. At first I was a little concerned because I could not get the reservations desk to answer at the phone number provided on the website. When I did get through & booked the room, I was not given a confirmation number but rather told it would be emailed--which never arrived. I double check the reservation when some of the other parents expressed some of the same concerns. It did get better, much better...
Our room was beautiful, nicely equiped with refrig, microwave, wet bar & ample storage. Beds were comfortable too! Breakfast was a busy spot (included in the room price), probably could use a larger serving area as lines got long during peak hours. Most impressive was ACTION CITY! The kids loved it, especially laser tag, go carts, bumper cars & arcade games. The price was right too, $40 per person for the card, which lasted all weekend of our stay! The water park was a nice change from the arcade & was also an enjoyable spot which the kids loved! We will plan to return :)

We loved the water park and breakfast was great. Staff was really good. Wooden frames that beds sit in were a problem, as they stick out in the way!!! Kids ran in to them, as did adults, especially if getting up at night to use the restroom.

Stayed one night with a 12 year old and 1 1/2 year old. Room was nice and liked the fact that they had a fridge and microwave. Kids had plenty to do with the water park and the Action City games although the 1 1/2 year old was a little bored at Action City I think, not the 12 year old though! I would recommend staying here for a little getaway with the kids. Was a tad pricey though for everything.

The Metropolis Resort is a wonderful place for a family. The facilities are top notch and the rooms are tip top. Incredibly clean, family-friendly environment. The staff was all very courteous and we were treated like a true "guest"
