The place was old but have pretty nice upgrade in the room we stayed. The size of the room was standard (we had one bed room), it was nice for 4 people. The bathroom was pretty good size and the hot water was always good. We slept very well on the sleeper sofa. The kitchenette was small but everything was...

We had a nice girls weekend at the Polynesian with my two daughters and 3 grandkids. Our room was nice although did need some work. Especially in the bathroom. Shower rod was broken (which ended up with a lot of water on the bathroom floor)and toilet seat wasn't screwed on one side. I notified front dest when we left. It...

I travel quite a bit, but mostly for work. I usually stay in chain hotels. We checked in on Thursday and checked out Sunday morning. Very personable staff throughout the resort. A much needed change from uptight, chains. If you travel, you know what I mean! Our children are 12 and 15. The water parks offered something for both. They...

We stayed at this resort last Friday and Saturday night. Our two kids had a great time! The water park was spread out nicely, my husband and I could watch our children while enjoying a couple drinks. Lifeguards were great and very attentive. Liked the rooms and options. They have something to fit any budget. We went with a new...

My husband and I took our 3 year old daughter and 5 year old son for 2 nights in February. We stayed in room 326 with a view of the outdoor waterpark. The bathroom in the hotel room definitely could use a upgrade, but overall the room was fine. The waterpark was great for my kiddos! They had fun in...

The indoor waterpark was great for kids all ages. Room was very clean. We brought our 2 year old and she had an absolute blast. But I can imagine if you had kids with a large age gap it could be fun for the older kids as well. There was a bunch of teenagers there while we were and they...

The price is right but don't expect room service, any supplies restocked, no cleaning services, or warm blankets on the bed...just three thin sheets. In February. The waterpark was fun; hot tub, floating river, couple of waterslides, but it's only open on the weekend.

Darren thank you for your review. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the indoor water park. We look forward to reopening the out door park this coming Memorial Day Weekend as the temperatures rise. We hope you come and splash around with us then too. We do have our "green" initiatives and restock and clean upon request. Please...

First the Pros- Great customer service! Especially Jason at the front desk. We asked for an ice bucket to be sent to our room and it arrived full of ice instead of just the empty bucket.

This is all great information. We have congratulated Jason for his review mention. As the season gears up and the property gets busier we do hire on more team members. Sounds like this is happening already!! We have reviewed your feedback with our onsite team and management. It is from our guest reviews that we can continue to train and...

Overall the hotel was nice and was everything we expected. What we didn't expect was our debit card to be hacked. We stayed there 2 weeks ago and last night there were purchases made with my information. That was the only place that card was used in the last month. It was also a coincidence that one of the 3...

We had a relaxing 3 night stay during a heat wave in Wisconsin. We have taken granddaughters here in the past so we knew the lazy river was the place to be.
