The hotel is very nice, but I was staying overnight on a road trip to Washburn. I didn't realize it was a family hotel, and that kids would be running in the halls above me, jumping on the beds, and making noise till well past midnight. If it hadn't been for the noise, I would stay there every time I...

I was here for a meeting, but this is definitely a kid friendly place. Water slide, arcade, pottery..my children would have loved it. For me though, backed up sink, yelling in hallways, slow wifi, and really rough sheets.

Nice hotel in a charming city. I was here for a conference but it is also a great destination for families with on site water park..good value..clean and nice rooms. Restaurant on site had good food. Would like a better choice on wine however. Good morning breakfast.

The lobby is very welcoming and nicely done with rustic decor. There is a little remodeling going on toward the back of the lobby though. We booked our stay though Groupon and check in was a breeze. There are 3 levels to the hotel. The lobby is on the main level, the pool and arcade are on the exposed lower...

UPDATED REVIEW: Booked a room at the Waters on Groupon for a quick getaway with my boyfriend. I booked this particular hotel because of the nice pools and hot tub area. Upon arrival we noticed that the lobby was absolutely packed. We patiently waited in line to check in only to be told that our reservation was for two weeks...

Went for a small spring break 2-night stay. My kids had a great time and we enjoyed sitting in the whirlpool that you could walk thru to the outside. Very cool! Pub had a great food and service. AND Starbucks in the gift shop was a PLUS! :-)

Came down to the waters' waterpark because of spring break.l at about 11 am. I'd say about 25-30 people were using the waterpark and no lifeguard. There is a sign saying that parents are responsible. Not sure how legal that is but whatever, I watch my son carefully. There was a mom letting her 1 year old, barely walking son...

A friend and I went to the Waters to use the water park for the day and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. There was a bit of construction going on in the lobby but they were very respectful of where we were walking and it didn't effect our time there at all. Two thumbs up from this gal!
