This is by far the best hotel in the area, mostly by default, however, it does better than what it was meant to do. By that I mean that it served all our needs beyond what is typically needed. The 2 room suite seemed very clean, modern, and spacious with a nice view of greenspace. The bathroom was a little tight and a poorly located doorstop (needs the kind hung on the hinges, not bolted to the floor in middle of room). That aside, the king bed was very comfortable, the central ac worked great on a 100 degree day, and the pullout sofa was comfortable for our teenage boys. Two tv's, while standard, are nice in a suite, as are the fridge and microwave, if only they offered pay-per-view movies as well.
My only real complaint was that upon arrival there was no "bell cart", as the only one they had must of been in use for over an hour in someone's room. It probably would foster the hotel to have at least two on premise. Also, that they extend their free breakfast time an extra hour to 10:00 AM. Alternately, the checkout time was 12 noon which allowed for a morning swim for the boys, a jacuzzi for me, and a leisurely quiet AM for my wife.
As for the "water park", it might not be much to some, but coming home from Wisc Dells, it was more than enough to keep myself and our 2 boys content for several hours. I don't think the room rates reflect any real "premium" for the pool area as indicated by other reviewers, compared to any other hotel, they were fairly in line. It fit all our needs including the large jacuzzi, and certainly would be perfect for families with young children and tots as well.
Further, the attached bar and grill were perfect for a late evening dinner and a couple of cocktails. The service by Robin was "great", as was the food (I had the homemade pizza, my wife was satisfied with a large chicken salad, and the portions of burgers and chicken were ample enough to fill my boys insatiable appetites). We also were able to get in a few games of family 8-ball on the pool table, with the jukebox playing lively music to boot. Finally, we forgot one of our phone chargers in the room and the hotel is mailing it to us. We will definitely stay there again if ever in the area.
