The waterpark is great for the kids but that's where it stops. The hotel didn't feel or appear very clean. The restaurant was pretty much a joke and very understaffed. If it wasn't for the waterpark, this place wouldn't make it.

Perfect. I'm like a two year old when it comes to "the water" so I can speak "from experience". Enjoy! I've been there 4 or 5 overnights with my grandchildren. I live in Massachusetts, they in Iowa/Illinois.
