We stayed here on a last minute weekend getaway. We were very impressed with how clean and updated everything was. The hotel has recently been updated and it shows. My kids loved the 3 swimming pools. My wife and I really like the swim up bar! It was a fantastic hotel stay... We will be back!
We all greatly enjoy the hotel's pools. The hot tubs and swim-up bar (the smoothies are fantastic) are also a perfect way to relax after a day at the park. We stayed in a family suite this last time and it was great! There was plenty of room - it could sleep 6. Also, the hotel offers a fantastic breakfast buffet which plenty of tasty food at a reasonable price. AdventureLand Inn offers a trolly to the park which is very convenient and we never have to wait long for the trolly to make its rounds. We usually visit at least once a summer and we always stay - and will continue to stay - here. It really is a fun way to end the day by swimming and relaxing in the pool areas.
We stayed here on Memorial Day weekend this year. It was clean and comfortable. Bathrooms were nice as they had two sinks. We had adjoining rooms and kids had fun in the pools! Staff was considerate and helpful. Due to inclement weather we did not end up going to the amusement park, but we still had a great time at the hotel swimming. They do offer a shuttle to the park which would have been great if weather had allowed us to go. I do recommend this hotel!
We recently stay here while attending the Iowa State fair. Great location. Nicely remodeled lobby area. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Nice to have 2 sinks, one inside bathroom one out for ease in getting ready. Pool areas are nice. We had a balcony room over looking the pool bar area, a little loud but was tolerable. We Used the trolley to go Adventureland which was a nice option. Overall great stay. Pizza from the restaurant was awesome.
We spent the night there after spending the day at Adventureland Amusement Park. The place was very clean and staff was very nice. I was able to pre-check-in so we could get our wristbands to ride the shuttle to the park. I really liked the front lobby, it was very bright and trendy.
We stayed on a Thursday night into a Friday morning. Check in time is at 4:00pm. There was no early check in available this particular day, but they did allow us to pre-register so that we could get our arm bands to ride the trolley over to the park. Maybe this is something they always do, but either way I thought it was nice. We went back and forth to the park a couple of times and never had to wait more than 20 minutes for the trolley and it was never too full to ride (keep in mind this was a Thursday). Hotel rooms were very clean, and I really didn't find them that out dated like a lot of people said they were. It was just a basic room like any other basic hotel. All the pools were pretty clean. Everyone that worked at the front desk that I interacted with were very nice. There was a charge on my bill that was not mine and they took care of it right away. The breakfast buffet was good. I honestly have nothing bad to say about this hotel or my stay.
Very friendly staff, and conveniently located to the amusement park. They recently just remodeled lobby it looks like the Museum of modern Art. The rooms are rather plain and generic, but I also had a nice little private. The free Wi-Fi was actually usable. Guests also are treated to a private trolley to the front gate of the amusement park, which prevents having to pay $15 for parking. The amusement park itself is very charming, beautifully landscaped, with hundreds of trees, lagoon, and bridges over a winding river. The two wooden roller coasters, Outlaw, and Tornado, were fun and family-friendly.
What a fun find! Stayed there the night before going to the park next door and the kids had an absolute blast! Two wings with two different pool types. Tons of chairs. Swim up bar in the pool for adults. Slides for the kids. Rooms were clean and comfy and everything was very well taken care of. You can request a room with a balcony that steps right down to the pool so parents can chill on their deck and watch the fun. The place is huge! They have a trolley that shuttles you to the park so you save the parking fee and don't have to even move your car. (Although, we just walked back because it was only .1 mile and took about 30 seconds to walk. ) No workout facility, but if you go to Adventureland or swim, you will get plenty of exercise. ;) Loved it!!! Highly suggest!!! Staff super fun and friendly as well.
I had the pleasure of visiting this hotel this weekend (memorial weekend) and they were amazing! It appeared they were doing some upgrades to the lobby, but that didn't slow them down one bit. The staff was amazing and the room was perfect! The convenience of the shuttle is great too, saves on parking fees to the park. My two boys age 3 & 8 were so excited and can't stop talking about both the hotel and the park! Oh, and the Cesar Salad I had sent to my room (while the boys were out cold) was delicious and convenient!
