          After reading some of these reviews I'm a little concerned about this hotel. We are staying in August, 2016. I booked this hotel on the suggestion of American Airlines as part of a package. We are staying 3 nights. Two of the days we will be on day tours. So only one day we will be around the hotel area. Is there anything in walking distance that we can go to? Does anyone have anything nice to say about this place? Can tickets for local attractions be purchased at the front desk? Thank you.

          I'd assume your airline suggested this as a money saver Not recommending it for its quality. I'd strongly suggest you look elsewhere.

          I will arrive late to Waterfront Lodge at around 10pm on 19th October 2014..therefore I will have late check in?.. Does the front desk still open at this time? How do I check in and get my room?

          Hi reception closes at 8pm. You will need to inform them of your late arrival and they will arrange for a key to be left for you or may even meet you at reception at that time.
