Overall, our stay was very nice. Room, hotel and pools were very clean. All staff, except front desk check in lady, we're very friendly and helpful. The restaurant attached was very enjoyable and all staff very friendly.

Swim up bar with great selections, great service, drunken floats just in case! You can order your room with rose pedals on the bed or the bath. The restaurant is nice with overall delicious food and romantic.

We stayed for one Saturday night in January with our girls ages six and three. The website says check in is at 4 pm but we showed up at 1 pm and were allowed to quickly check in.The hotel was clean and well cared for and the staff was friendly and attentive. This hotel has two different indoor courtyards and between the two there are three pools and two hot tubs. Our kids enjoyed the east courtyard the most. It has a kids activity pool, a pool with a swim up tiki bar and a large 28 person hot tub. the west court yard has an L shaped pool and a hot tub ( Which was Scalding hot!! I will give two thumbs way up for the guys dressed up like referees! They patrolled the pool areas and did a great job keeping all the kids in line without being over the top. If they saw some one running or being unsafe they blew the whistle and then nicely explained to the offending child what they had done wrong. This place was crowed and the referees were a nice touch!There were a lot of large families gathered there celebrating late Christmases on their balconies over looking the pool which added a really cool vibe there. A lot of the adults ok ALL of the adults were drinking but I never saw anyone drunk or out of control. Everyone was mild mannered and having a great time swimming with their kids. I would recommend this place for families with kids 12 and under. The younger kids will love the pools and swimming in general. Things I would not do again if we went back would be order room service. We ordered a pizza and while it was delivered promptly and the quality was ok we could of ordered a for delivery from an outside pizza restaurant for a lot less money!! All and all the 119 a night was a great value and it was a nice way to spend a very cold weekend! The kids loved it and I am sure before this winter is over we will go back!

I have 6 and 4 yr old girls who love to swim. This place was perfect because we could strap their floaters on for the deeper parts and they were able to stand in most of it. Of course we swam with them but never once did I feel like it was too crowded or other kids were making it too hard for them to have fun. Plus, it was WARM in the water and it the room. Generally we end up freezing in indoor water parks because it's so cold; however, this one was just right! We will be back for our annual "winter vacation weekend" next year; hopefully with friends and a room on the floor next to the pool!! :)

Our family stayed for the New Year's Eve celebration. Everything was wonderful and we all had a great time. This was our first time at the sports bar and we loved it. Thank you for the fun memories.

This is the 2nd year in a row that we approximately 20 of us have stayed at this hotel. The rooms are very clean, the staff very pleasant and helpful. The kids enjoy the water park. We will definitely have our family get together every January at this hotel. Couldn't have asked for a better place to share and make wonderful memories with the family!!!

Adventureland Inn has been a great place for our extended family to get together the past two years for our Christmas. It's always been clean and has friendly helpful staff. Water park is spacious and it's really nice to have multiple swimming areas. Kids in our group range in ages from 3 to 16. They all have a fun time. The hotel restaurant offers a great variety for breakfast and is reasonably priced. We will definitely keep coming here.

Overall

This was a stellar choice for my five year-old's birthday party. We had a beautiful and clean poolside room and bought the "Birthday Party" package for $100 on top. The $100 package comes with 3 large pizzas, 3 2-liters, and six additional wristbands (five wristbands come with the room). All of the children had a BLAST. We were able to easily order more pizzas (and in my opinion Adventureland Inn has the best pizza in the metro) and bring our own juice boxes and cupcakes. Adults could purchase alcohol at the poolside bar (and we brought a few beers for the fridge in our room). It was the best birthday party we've had for our kids. We did a piñata on our little lanai off the room. The arcade offered fun after the pool.
Check in was friendly and easy. I would certainly do another birthday party there. Also - They have really nice smelling soaps and lotions in the room, which is always a plus in my book.Stayed December 2016, traveled with family

My Grandson requests this motel for his birthday every year. He's 11 now and enjoys it as much as he did when he was 7. Nice rooms and pool areas.

My kids had so much fun and my husband and I enjoyed spending time together too. Clean, friendly comfortable. There is a nice sports bar / restaurant in the hotel. Also a gift/ snack shop. Two pool areas both with hot tubs and swim up bar; all while remaining kid friendly.

It is a nice place to meet and have an over night stay with my grandkids. The pools are fun for them when the weather turns cooler and they cannot release their energy outside.
