Ok it's a cheesy theme place... I get that. What I don't get is all the great reviews. The place is run down and in terrible shape. The pictures on website are very misleading. Our room was small and dingy. We made the best of it but will not be returning.

Right off the top, I need to say that we stayed in "Kate's Country Cabin," which is described by the resort as being the hotel's "economy option." It is less expensive than all the other units, undoubtedly because it is less appealing. But we were grateful to have an economy-friendly room and you get what you pay for, so I'm...

This place was like a trip to the past. We loved the room which we almost never left it. We went there for my birthday, and felt like a queen in there. The costumes were great as well. The staff and the other guests were very friendly and let us look into their rooms. The hot tub was absolutely terrific!...

This place is an out of the ordinary wonderful escape. We stayed in the tree house so I could only review that certain cabin since each one is different. First I would comment on the reservation process. I booked our trip directly at their website which was offering a discount if your price is over a certain amount and on...

After a recommendation from a friend my boyfriend & I stayed here for a weekend in the Crystal Cave. While it was far from luxurious and I laughed at how cheesy it was, we had such a great time!!! The theme of the room kept us giggling, along with the waterfall into the jacuzzi. The shower was great and plenty...
