I have stayed at this hotel annually for the past 10 years. I am not a fan of camping so we stay at the lodge and usually get a kids suite. The hotel is compatible to a Days Inn. It serves a purpose - close to the amusement park, nice outdoor pool, reasonably priced. That said, I find that I know more than the staff does about the local amenities, the amusement park and restaurant options. When I check out of the hotel, the staff have never once asked me if everything was ok. The lodge does not have a 1-800 number (they want everything done by web). It can be noisy so don't stay here if you are looking to sleep in. A picnic table was positioned near our room so we heard loud smokers outside at night or kids bouncing a ball before 7:45 a.m. This email is not meant to come across as negative as I would not keep going back if I didn't value the family vacation destination. I want to see them succeed but they need to invest in training and motivating their team. Please also move the picnic tables away from rooms. We will be back next year and hope to see progress as we are loyal visitors. The amusement park is awesome.
