We were looking for something near that was somewhat like

Nice getaway: We were looking for something near that was somewhat like an indoor waterpark. The 0-depth pool was GREAT for the kids, I didn't have to go in and hold my 2-year old the whole time, as she could touch! WONDERFUL!

They were really nice, and they were very pretty

Great Hotel: i liked the room by the pools. They were really nice, and they were very pretty. It was decently cheap too. The rooms by the pools made it easy to go to the pool was was very relaxing when you can just come up to the chairs and relax then go back to the pool. Good for watching children.

We had a terrific stay at Adventureland Inn

We had a terrific stay at Adventureland Inn! I must admit, after reading some of the negative reviews, I was a bit worried, but once we arrived, all that fear vanished! First of all, the room we stayed in was a standard room on the first floor. Must have been recently remodeled. Nice comfy beds, which is unusual in motels, nice flat screen TV, marble-like flooring, wall coverings in the bathroom. There was a little fenced in area off the back of our room, where we could park right outside - very handy to pack & unpack the vehicle! Then there's the pool....AWESOME!!! WE have two small children that spent hours in the kiddie pool. It's a zero entry to 2.5-or-so ft. pool, with a little slide and a couple of other water features that made the kids giggle each time. We loved being able to sit either in the pool on the side, or in one of the chairs, just relaxing & watching them play. The roof is a dome, which can be open, or closed depending on the weather. This was especially nice since it was raining & we weren't able to go right over to Adventureland like we were planning to do. I can't imagine how we would've kept the kids happy without the pool! The swim-up bar pool was right there, which was playing tropical-type music, making you feel as if you're at a resort...not in IA! The drinks were very yummy as well!! You can sit right with your kids while enjoying an adult cocktail. Granted, we don't get out all that often, but our fmaily will definitely make the 5 hour journey to Adventureland Inn again & again!

Overall
It is definitely geared towards young children

We checked in on a Friday afternoon around 1:30. The first thing we noticed was how friendly the staff was. We booked a pool side room. The staff recommended the ""east"" end since we were traveling with our 4 year old son. He was fascinated with the ""nicely heated"" pool,slides, and water shower. It is definitely geared towards young children. The hotel offers a free shuttle to Adventureland. We had forgotten our wrist bands to board the first day and decided to just walk over since it took about 8 minutes. After returning from the park that night, we ordered take out from the nice hotel restaurant and dined by the pool. The food was very good and reasonably priced. However; the restaurant does not open until 2:00 PM. I do wish they would have offered a Saturday Brunch. The beds were comfortable, and the room temperature was well controlled. The bathrooms were clean. They only supply a small shampoo and soap, so don't forget your lotion and conditioner. The room came equipped with a coffee pot. The large Flat screen TV had many cable channels to choose from. We checked out the next day and spent another day at the Adventureland water park. It is there that my son continuously asked to go back to the hotel !! We had a wonderful stay and we are looking forward to returning in the near future. We felt it was well worth the money. If you are traveling with young children, this hotel would be your best choice!!

Family place folks....

Family place folks. 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. The place is old and knowing that going in might ease your senses a bit since you won't be expecting fresh digs with the latest prints on the wall. Also, water and fabric plus the passage of time is going to lead to some bad outcomes. People expect sooo much these days it frustrates the heck out of me when they bash on a place like this because they expect to pay $22/night and receive in room facials, massages and pedicures. This place is wonderful for the family. We will go back.

Everyone enjoys it tremendously.

We have been there every year for 8 years: we take our entire family to adventure land every July. Everyone enjoys it tremendously. We have run into a few problems, but the staff have been more than helpful to fix whatever problem we encounter. We will be back again

Pleasantly surprised!

Pleasantly surprised!: I spent a very snowy week-end there in Iowa with my 2 grand kids. I was a little concerned after reading some of the reviews, but our room was clean and in good shape. The Inn was totally booked but the pools and staff handled the crowd very well. It is a great place to get away from the miserable Iowa weather in the middle of Winter, with no windows to remind you of what is going on outside!
