The wedding reception facility was beautiful and reception was lots of fun. Food was delicious. The staff was very friendly and accommodating especially at the front desk. However, breakfast took almost an hour to be served. Front desk was happy to extend our check out time.

Very disappointing

Pros: Like about it? Clean, mostly, and nice staff.
Cons: So much! They NEED a private pool and hot tub for regular hotel guests, and a continental breakfast at least. Coffee tasted burnt.
Location: Location was not too bad. Mall and a lot of restaurants nearby. I wouldn't recommend the Pub that is located in the Hotel.
My husband and I go to a hotel every year for our anniversary, and enjoy local food and attractions.This year we decided to stay local to our area. I found a good deal on the Metropolis Hotel that was closer to the restaurant we had reservations at. I had heard of the hotel many times, and on tv, so I thought it must be really nice! I was so wrong. It's hard to review this place because if you are a family who wants to take your kids to a water park, then it's really a good deal. If you are a business traveler or guest for a special occasion you may find it far from relaxing, as we had. Upon arrival, we were greeted by very friendly staff. We wanted to relax in the hot tub and pool before we went to dinner. It was then that we found out that the Hotel does NOT have a pool as stated on the website. If you want to swim, or soak in a relaxing hot tub, you HAVE to go into the Chaos Water Park! And Chaos is what it is. Children everywhere, playing basketball in the only pool, so we couldn't even swim. We sat in the hot tub for a short time until the whole thing was just to annoying. It was very loud, with large fans running, water splashing and loud echo's of kids yelling. I am not exaggerating. We went to the room and got ready instead. Usually we go a little less expensive, like a Sleep Inn, etc, as long as we have a pool and hot tub. Bed was hard, coffee tasted burnt,pillows lumpy and there were drain flies. Ick. Needless to say, it was not a nice anniversary stay. :(

Clean and friendly hotel

I booked through a low-price website and got a great deal on a Sunday through Tuesday. Since this is a resort, it is probably quite busy with families on the weekends, however my days were quiet (which I appreciated). The hotel is fairly new (within 10 years?) and it is kept up nicely. I liked the room layout and lighting and it provided a great space to rest and rejuvenate before getting on the road again. Room was clean; bathroom shower was large; lighting was more intimate and not glaring, and the halls were quiet. Staff was very friendly and courteous.

Great for business traveller!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Even thought there were high school sports teams in the building, the building was quiet enough for those without children. Beautiful room with whirlpool. Staff made me feel right at home and had my room ready for me promptly! Glad to see the effort toward being "green" as well!

Kids loved it

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: Noisy
We arrived a couple hours before check in but were not able to check in early. Not a problem, we toured the area a bit. When we arrived back 10 minutes before the official check in time we were told we still could not check in for another 10 minutes but then they proceeded to check in a large group behind us. The room was what we expected. Lively decor throughout the hotel and fun and funky waterpark area. The staff in the waterpark were not overly friendly and insisted we pay extra for the waterpark entrance, even though our printout clearly stated that was included in the rate. However, when we checked out they ended up not charging us like they said they were going to. Waterpark is perfect size for our young family. Our oldest (7) was able to play on his own without having us right next to him as we could see most of the waterpark from any one spot in the room. Our room was straight at the top of the stairs off the front entrance and bar area. The biggest downside was the very thin walls. We could hear the large group of loud men at the bar as if they were standing outside our door which made for a very long night. The breakfast was good decent although the dining area was very small. Ordering special omelettes is a bit confusing but my kids loved the make your own waffles. I'd recommend if you get a great rate. It's just our opinion but we feel the delay in check in and room location was because of booking through here vs the hotel itself.

weekend get away with the kdis

WE stayed here with our two children ages 2&3. Although I thought the hotel looked lovley I felt as if I was staying in a college dormitory. You could here EVERTYHING! There were little to no sound barriers between rooms and floors. It was incredibly hard to get my children to go to sleep with the constant noise and door slamming from the hallway. The water park was fun, HOWEVER both my husband and I ended up with chest congestion due to poor ventilation in the air. The attendants admitted that the facility almost always has poor ventilation.
