The price was great and the accomodations were wonderful! The Adventureland staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean and my room was close to the parking lot where I parked my car. Very comfortable beds!! Was nice to have coffee pot and several coffee fillers there as well as a refrigerator. Would recommend this hotel to everyone!!

I stay here often mostly because of the friendly and attentive staff. The facility is old,but they do a good job of keeping it in good shape. Two pools, two hot tubs, two bars, and [very soon] two family-oriented activity areas; it kind of has a Noah's Ark thing going on.

The resturant/bar (Spectators) is newly remodeled and themed as a sports bar and grill. Although I liked the smaller more cozy bar, Spectators brings in the crowds with their great menu, too-many-to-count beers on tap, and high-tech design. They feature a 12 foot by 12 foot (at least) screen TV on one wall.

This was a great place for the weekend. We spent a day at the park after we checked in to the hotel. We got a shuttle ride to the park, so didn't have to pay for parking at the park. Plus we got dropped off at the gate. We had a family suite, poolside, which was great for the small kids in our group. The "referee" at the pool was very friendly, but kept the kids in line! We had breakfast at the buffet.

We had five families get together during our stay. It was my first trip to Adventureland Inn. The lobby is bright and fresh, while most of the rest of the facility is past its prime. The two pool areas kept our crew of kids entertained

Rooms/beds are nice! Awesome helpful staff! I like staying here in the winter because it makes you feel like you are staying at a tropical paradise. Has a very nice restaurant inside. Pools kept the kids occupied and happy. They have a splash pool for the little Tyke's

Enjoyed our 3 days at Adventureland Park. The grand kids had a great time. They got to ride as much as they liked abd the weather was simply gorgeous. Temperature was in the low 70's everyday with no humidity. Loved It!


This hotel and what it has to offer is a fun and exciting environment with all the poolside rooms and being so close to the actual amusement park.

there store was stocked with everything you need and there game room even though it's under remodel at the moment is going to be probably one of the best in the state. Great place to bring the family to swim

They are still updating (new arcade coming in March '16). Rooms have flatscreens with Directv and mini fridge. All staff was very helpful & nice. Easy checkin/out. 3 pools are the highlite. We had a blast and I have no complaints. Would stay here again.

We had a two room suite. It was perfect for us. We had three adults and four children. The adults had the bedroom with 2 queen beds. The living room area has a couch that pulls out to a bed and then we brought an air mattress. There was plenty of room for everyone. The tricky part was one bathroom! There is a sink area outside of the bathroom, so you at least have 2 sinks. All in all, we were satisfied with the room and the hotel. The staff was VERY friendly. We stayed our first day at their pool, and then the next 2 days at Adventureland. There is a shuttle that runs very frequently between the two, so it is very handy. Basically door to door service. So if you want or need to go back to the hotel during the day and return to the park later, it's no hassle!

The pool area is pretty tough to beat. Two pool areas, including a shallow one for the kiddos. One pool also has a basketball and volleyball set up,for older people. The rooms are well kept and they have been updating the inside. Location is pretty good too.

f you're looking for a quick little winter getaway with an indoor pool for the kids, a swim up bar for the adults and a close proximity to the casino, this is your choice. There is also a brand new kids play room that is really well done. They are close to opening up a brand new sports bar as well. I would recommend to anyone, we had a blast with family and kiddos.

We live less than a mile from this hotel but stayed here for one night on 1/9/16. We choose to stay because it was a great place to celebrate our daughters fifth Birthday. I found the staff to be extremely friendly and accommodating and everyone we encountered said hello and greeted us with a smile.

We recently stayed at Adventureland for one night. The lobby is very nice and caught our children's attention right away. The front desk staff was busy, but aware of the guests waiting and requested more staff to help. It was nice to see that they cared about the guests. We made the mistake of lugging the majority of our luggage in to the lobby, only for them to suggest we park in the back near the door that was much closer to our room.

I was impressed by the standard room size. We had ample space for our pack-n-play and all of our bags. The room is not fancy. It is very basic. Our fridge worked wonderfully (make sure you turn it on when you arrive). I was happy to see the complimentary shampoo and conditioner was "Stress Relief" Bath and Body Works brand. They also had free WiFi!

We enjoyed the kiddie pool with our children (2yrs &4yrs). It was the perfect depth for our timid swimmers. Several children were respectfully enjoying the pool at the same time as us. There was a "Referee" who monitored the pool to ensure the rules were being followed. He was a very kind gentleman and reminded the children not to run or climb up the slide. He only had to blow his whistle once! I was happy to see that there was someone to enforce the rules to ensure the pool was enjoyable for all ages.

We would definitely stay here again if we were traveling with our children.

Pool was good, but again best suited for younger kids. Food was good, fair priced. Overall good experience and will be back i'm sure.

A Keurig in your room. A convenient store that stays open until 10. Clean rooms. A restaurant with wonderful service (give it a 10).
