"The entrance to the hotel from the main road is not lighted making it hard to see at night. Walls are thin enough to hear your neighbors partying all night, which happened one of the nights I was there."

"Our room was ok. We had no hot water our entire stay. Talked to staff about it in person and was unresolved. Water park was beyond disgusting. There was mold growing in toilets and garbage cans in bathrooms. Wads of toilet paper everywhere. I almost threw up. Lifeguards were half asleep and inconsistent with rules if they enforced them at all. The stairs leading up to slides had rust and paint peeling off. It was so gross. The railing had also rusted off bottom support and was very loose. There were screws that were loose and even coming out on some of the slide pieces. It was a bit scary. Water was so cloudy my kids couldn’t even see with their goggles on. Hot tub was luke warm and when jets were on you wouldn’t know it. Signs in eating areas stated no outside food and drinks allowed. So we hauled our wet selves and pizza we ordered up to our room to eat. We came back down and two different groups of people were at tables with food they ordered out of hotel. Never staying again!"

So now we get a room in bldg.B #186 so we load everything up and wheel it thru the lobby into next bldg. I unlock the door and open there is someone sleeping in the bed!! Well the front desk clerk can't figure out why some one is there . Now a new person is helping us he says I was off 2 hours ago but still here. In this time 2 different people have come to th desk and say my TV and phone don't work!!! My new clerk is trying to keep it together. He says I can only put you on the 2nd. floor and I'll help you with your bags, It is now 10 pm so we go with him. This room must of had a blind wyndham inspector!!
