              We stayed at the hotel for the location to the good guys car show and the races at national trail raceway. The earlier reviews of the hotel had me a little worried. To my surprise the staff was excellent an went above and beyond for us. My boys are 17 and 14 and spent one evening at the water park and had a great time. The tower rooms are by no means new but they are clean and what you would expect from an older hotel. Everything worked and the fridge was warm until we turned it up and it worked just fine. I would stay here again and am considering bringing our church youth group for a weekend.

              The waterpark

              It was lousy.. The bar was empty. Chicken terrible. Hotel room not very up to part no flat screen tv. Bath tub ring. It wasn't worth me spending that kinda of money for less than 24 hours.

              I liked that you had several life guards that were stationed all over the water park. they took their jobs seriously. I didn't worry about my grandson.

              The resturauant was good.

              I would not recommend this for travelers. If you have a half dozen kids you do not care to supervise for a weekend as they careen through the halls and water park, act rude with no accountability...while you freek out over the filth and hair in your bathroom...while your spouse tries to get the ac and the fridge to work....this is for you. And apparently ever other such family in the state of Ohio. I would suggest the owners consider other investments as this '70s era relic needs to be converted to a state prison so the bathroom decor would match, and the managers need to get off the internet and try a different career such as a slaughter house line worker, because the only people that give a c&*p are the resturaunt folk. Kudo's to them.good food, friendly folk.

              Price w ise the place was good. Better price of the water park for people actually staying at the hotel.

              Didnt use the park as much I think public should pay more than the people actually staying there. There should be discount for people staying.

              The waterpark was wonderful! We are grandparents taking our grandchildren for a fun short vacation. We all thoroughly enjoyed the stay

              The waterpark and game room was nice.

              Rooms are very outdated and appeared dirty. Tub clogged. Loud neighbors, had to get security involved.

              Room was dirty. We stayed two days and maid service did not clean our room and did not give us towels. I had to go to the front desk three times to get towels for the next day.

              The water park and the arcade were awesome. The kids had a great time and were well entertained. The presence of many lifeguards in the water park instilled confidence in the safety of the facility. The staff in the arcade were so friendly to parents and children. This made for a great trip as a family. The beds were clean; the towels were clean; there were no bugs!-Good things I noted.

              The rooms looked as if they were way past their prime. The curtains were tattered in their ragged plastic liners. We had to ask for a lamp as our room was very dark; they brought one quickly but the lampshade was ripped. My daughter's room was missing a microwave. My coffeemaker was so dirty the lid wouldn't raise to add the water-it also has a hair stuck in it. Needless to say I didn't use it; I bought single-serve packets to use while we were there. They needed that guy from the show that makes over poor hotels to make a visit. I was sorely disappointed that you rated it a five-star hotel-NO way!!!! Housekeeping needs to be vastly improved and many things need to be replaced to improve the "ambience".Difficult to answer the next question;
