The entire experience went well. I called ahead and asked for a room on the 7th floor away from the elevators as instructed by fellow tripadvisors. Thank you!
We slept well enough - the room next door had loud people so my earplugs came in handy! The king-size bed was comfortable (It was my husband and I plus my 7 year old. She didn't want to use her air mattress : / We all slept comfortably though!) and the toiletries in the bathroom were very handy.
I didn't get greeted everywhere by employees like other guest have posted on here, but hey, I wasn't treated badly either.
Breakfast was chaos but it was controlled chaos. Lots of families over the 4th of July weekend. They kept the food coming and by the way, the food was great! Hot food! Waffles, oatmeal, eggs, sausage...plus the cold stuff too, like cereal. The menu was a little different everyday. they kept clearing and cleaning of tables non-stop! Thank you kitchen staff!
Parking is free and for the most part we felt safe where we parked (in the back by the pool area).
The room itself was clean and neat. There was a T.V., small fridge, microwave and coffee pot available for us.
There is a laundry room on the first floor - you need your own soap and money for this one.
The pool was nice, there is a spa available too - the area was clean and neat.
I think this place is worth the price. The place IS family friendly but the people vacationing might not be. Don't hold it against the place. Some guy was freaking out about a chair by the pool. All I wanted to do was leave our towels so they wouldn't be on the floor and get wet, but no. The guy said he had to fight off other people for the chair too. I laughed that off - that's ridiculous. The kicker? He wasn't even sitting on it!!! He was standing around checking on his kid the entire time! LOL. So you see, my only advice other than to bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper like me is...BE NICE! BE KIND TO OTHERS! And people will be nice and kind to you. :) In his defense, it was about 9:30 pm and I'm sure he was just cranky because he needed to get to bed... Who knows! LOL
