Its a GREAT place to stay, theres a shuttle that takes you right to the amusement park, indoor pool. Now my favorite part about Adventureland Inn is the pool... The pool is GREAT for kids and adults. There is a little bar here that you can sit at while you get your feet wet and keep your eyes on the kid/kids "depending on how much you've drank"... The location is GREAT. Its right next to ALOT of restaurants and also next to the casino "for those of you who enjoy gambling.

I highly recommend coming here if your visiting the area with your family.

We stayed at this hotel for a family reunion. It was very convenient for family members going to Adventureland Amusement park. There is a shuttle and it is within walking distance

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while visiting the Adventureland Amusement park. We chose this hotel because of it's indoor pool facilities, location near the park, and free trolley to and from the park. I'll start with the good. The two separate courtyard pool areas were great! Our 2 year old enjoyed the East courtyard with the frog slide and other water features. This area also had a hot tub and separate pool with swim up bar.

Decided to stay here for the convenience of the free trolley rides to and from Adventureland Park, because we always like to have a few cold one's while we're there! ;) We had adjoining rooms, which was appreciated.

We had the best time ever! Our three year old and one year old had a grand time! We were there from the time they opened till closing, and never had a tantrum! They just kept going like the energizer bunny. I just loved how clean it was and the rides were just long enough to give them a thrill. Other places the rides are tooooo short! This place was the best! We will be back. If your wondering; are we goin to have fun the answer is YES!!!!!! YOU WILL!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone we dealt with was friendly, helpful, cheerful. (A young man delivering from service to someone stopping help us find the ice machine... to the front desk, waitress, everyone!)

Great place to stay-what else can I say? Very friendly staff, rooms were very nice, the pool was well taken care of and the pool atmosphere, landscaping, was very enjoyable.

Spent most of our time at the pool or the theme park so the amenities of the room was not really in question with us. We have been here before, we came back, enough said. It's a nice get away for the kids.

Best Reception Ever!: I actually had my

Best Reception Ever!: I actually had my Wedding Reception at this location. It was perfect. The room was beautiful with a fountain in the background, pillars and soft lights everywhere. The staff was so great to us and even put up with the father of the bride's crazy demands with a smile. They even arranged for a location in the hotel to be reserved for a gift opening the next morning. They covered everything. I couldn't have asked for more. The suite that evening was beautiful with a balcony that we could sit on and just relax and talk. I would recommend this location to anyone getting married in the future.

I was dreading staying here after

I was dreading staying here after reading the reviews, but my brother and his wife and kids have always liked this hotel and wanted to stay for the Fourth of July weekend. It turned out to be a great stay. Here are some of the things that I wanted to address based on what I've read from others reviews: I had three rooms reserved including one for one night and two for two nights. No problem and all the rooms were together. The front desk help was very friendly and helpful. Manager was clearly present at all times. Manager was leaving the front desk but returned when he saw me approaching. Room was clean, no smell, and very trendy. Flat screen tv in all rooms. Entrance to all room we had reserved had a tile floor. You can reach the bathroom and sink on tile. I think this cuts down on wet feet reaching the carpet. No problem with pool temps or chlorine. Had breakfast at their buffet. Excellent staff and our trendy coffee drinkers loved the coffee. The buffet is very basic, but good. The next day we had room service for one of the kids and it was quick and appropriately priced. Staff brought extra towels, coffee and cream, and shampoo to my mom when requested very quickly. So, I hope this all means that the hotel is turning things around. I hope you all have a good stay there. We did!
