DANIELL AT FRONT DESK WAS VERY NICE. All of the employees were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. Water park workers were great! Lifeguards were alert and did their job VERY well. They checked to make sure I was OK after I came down the water slide and got disoriented. And I was!

Inn is simple, somewhat dated, but rates are reasonable and the staff was very helpful. The water park is nice, not huge, but also not crowded. It was very convenient staying in the Inn right down the hall from the water park and pool. My only suggestion would be slightly warmer pool water in the winter. Daniell at the Front...

We went here specifically so the kids could spend a cold winter weekend in a waterpark. We go to a waterpark every winter and this year decided to try this one. It is smaller than others, but warmer. (well, the water was a tad chilly at first, but the temperature inside the park was warmer than others and that matters...

Me and my family were looking for an impromptu get away for a reasonable price. The Budget Host Inn provided just that. The room was clean and so was the water park. Danielle from the front desk was very accommodating!!! When we called for towels they came very quickly. The hotel is an older building but that's ok b/c it...

I took my boys and grandson away but could not spend a lot of money. I did not expect the hotel or water park to be as amazing as it was. The staff was courteous and extremely helpful and the place was really clean. We will be back many more times in the future!

I took a shot and booked this hotel for three days based on the fact that they have an indoor waterpark. NOT a good idea! When I arrived, I was told the park tickets were not included and would be extra. I knew before hand that there were packages available online and spoke to a rep who told me the...

Staying here with family this weekend, I was very nervous based on previous reviews. I wasn't expecting much, just hoping it was at least clean. I was so surprised to see how big and clean the rooms were. The staff, especially Danielle and Annelisese at the front desk, were all super sweet and very helpful. We never had a problem...

We took the kids and grandkids for a weekend. They had a fantastic time in the waterpark, though the adults thought the water was a bit chilly, but that didnt stop any of the kids. They loved it.
