Guest Reviews

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 62 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Staff so friendly! I write a weekly column for a local newspaper. I was so impressed with your hotel staff I wrote about our weekend getaway at the Three Bears Lodge; it was published today (2/26) in the Albany Enterprise Newspaper. What my family found so impressive was first the friendliness of the staff and lifeguards. An excellent first impression. Secondly, even though the hotel was full, the waterpark was not over-crowded due to your hotel's closing the waterpark to the public. Keeping the waterpark open only to the hotel guests is not a practice of all hotel/waterparks, but will keep us coming back for more. Thanks for a great weekend. February 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GCummings Each Christmas, our family, gets together at a hotel with a water park. This is our gift to our children and their families. This is our second year at this hotel because we enjoyed ourselves so much the first year. Two of our children's families had the Kid Suites. This is one of the reasons we came back this year because our grandchildren love the Kid's Suites. One of our children's family had a Standard Suite which was large enough for a Pack and Play for the baby. We had a Standard room our has we like to call it, the party room. All the families have baby monitors in their rooms and this hotel is sooooo accommodating when I ask to get all the rooms together. We had reservations in January but one of our families had the flu. It was past the cancellation point when we decided if one family can't go, none of us would go. I called and explained the situation to the receptionist and told her that I would like to reschedule for another weekend. To my surprise and elation, she was able to reschedule the whole family in February with no penalty. So if I could, I would give customer service 10 stars for excellence. No matter what I asked of them, they came through. The water park is another reason we keep coming back. It is large enough for our children and small enough for the five grand kids, ages 17 months to 7 years old. The supervision in the pool area is top notch, not to lack but not to stern. The grand kids love it and our children kept telling us how much they love it too. For my myself, the number one reason that we keep coming back is the helpfulness of the entire staff. They go above and beyond expectations every time. I really can't thank them enough for making our weekend so memorable. February 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Had a great stay We went to the hotel for a mid-winter getaway, specifically for the water park. It was great! The service of the front desk was great, however the lifeguards a poolside folks were ok. More interested in each other at times, than safety. February 12, 2014
