We loved this place and would go back in a heart beat, but you need to be prepared to make it work for you since it is a busy hotel.
First off I went directly to the site and looked for a room with breakfast included for the 4 of us. With taxes and anything else added it came to $313 for 2 nights. I did so much better than that. Check out the whole thing HERE. I did call and have her offer me something a little better, but I did best with package deal.
Since this Hotel is near the park(actually it’s the closest) I figured it would be run down and marginal. I was so surprised to see that it was not only very nice looking, but it was very clean. It makes going back to your hotel to rest a whole lot more fun.
Our breakfast was a cook to order, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect there. BIG TIP: When we were there the place was busy, but not off the charts busy since we always hit amusement parks in the off season. I am sure during the busy season this place is a zoo and you really, really need to plan accordingly.
This is a sit down breakfast. There is a pastry/cereal/toast bar plus a fruit bar. From there you wait for someone to come take your order for hot food which is eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, pancakes and waffles to name a few. The kitchen cranks it out as fast as they can, but they do get behind. The servers are running like crazy. DO NOT think you will eat in 15 minutes or less plan accordingly. It will take some time especially if you have to wait for a table.
I really, really appreciated the shuttle service. I am sure that since they were not super busy that they accommodated us well. You have to schedule what time you want to be taken to the park and what time you want picked up. Spots fill up quickly, so book at departures to the park as soon as you arrive.
We had scheduled a pick up, but some other people waiting had not. Had we not scheduled it, those people would have never gotten picked up, because a shuttle would not have known to come get them. The nice thing is since the Hotel is so close they can turn around and come back for the next group within 5 minutes.
I am not sure in the busy season how many trips they become willing to take. They claim one trip every 1/2 hour, but they were doing more. At $15 a day for parking at the amusement park, this was a great benefit to our hotel. No other hotels in the area do this. Not only do you save the $15, but you don’t have to walk all the way from the parking lot or back to your car at the end of the day. Drop off and Pick up are right there by the entrance.
