“All I can say is wow! Unbelievable place. Thank you and to the staff at the holiday inn and water park. The whole entire staff was so nice from the front desk to the younger kids inside the water. The food was great at the restaurant and the room service was fast to bring extra stuff to the room. I will be back sooner then later you can bet on that. I also would love to get put on your mailing list incase there are specials with the family pack ( hotel and water park )”

“My kids loved the waterpark! The staff and restaurant employees were very nice and our room was very nice. Will def come back and stay again!”
This is our 3rd stay at this hotel and we continue to come back. It’s been a couple years and you can see the rooms are showing their age a bit but the rooms are comfortable, large and very clean. The waterpark is excellent and included in the price so it’s makes the stay very affordable. Also enjoy the kids eat free program as that saved on our meals. The food in the restaurant was very good as was the service. We will be back!
