We have stayed at this HIE several times when visiting family in the area, and we have no complaints. Rooms are clean and beds are wonderful. We haven't had contact with the housekeeping staff, but[More]
the front desk people have always been very friendly.
The hotel is somewhat high-priced compared to other HIE properties, but that is no doubt due to the costs associated with the water park.
A couple of minor things to mention. The last couple of times we have stayed, the toilets in our rooms have been very loud and forceful when flushed. They are probably water-saving toilets, and they are incredibly annoying! I don't remember that the toilets were this way a number of years ago, so I'm assuming that the original ones have been replaced.
The breakfast is the standard HIE breakfast with enough variety to please most everyone. Like most of the HIE dining areas, this one is too small relative to the number of guests that the hotel can accommodate. It's impossible to find a seat, even in the overflow area, if the dining area is busy.
The above issues notwithstanding, I would recommend this hotel and will definitely stay here for future visits. [Less]
