My son and I came on a quiet Monday in early July to explore the Adventure park. We arrived in the early afternoon, and we're able to check in right away. The room was very nice—had been renovated fairly recently. Quite likely the bathroom, which was fitted with a new shower instead of a tub. The TV only had "on... More

Our horrible stay started the minute we arrived. Approaching the check in desk we got a not so pleasant look from the girl behind the counter. Then told her we're checking in and that seemed to bother her, by the end of checking in she turned pleasant, as if to make up for her rudeness at the start. We entered... More
