Not worth the hype or price

We stayed just before MDW, with our 2 young children. Check in went great, the employee at the front desk was very friendly and informative. Upon checking into our room, I noticed a few areas where crumbs were left behind, the floor clearly had not been vacuumed. There was a substance splattered on our lamp shade, the bathroom door, and there were a few other questionable areas throughout the room. We only had one full roll of toilet paper, and I found it unnerving that all of the toiletry items were in large prefilled pump containers, who knows what could have been added or put into them! There was also mold around the base of the shower/tub. After unpacking, we headed right down to the pool, which had just opened at 4:00pm. There were not many people there, and our kids were excited to have a majority of the water park to themselves. There were 3 "life guards" or staff members in the area, who all began to take breaks within the first 30 minutes of our arrival. I found this odd as they had been on the clock for less than an hour. When a staff member would take a break, they would close down the larger water slide. After swimming, we decided to check out the walking path and beach area near the lake. The view was beautiful, although I found it strange that we didn't encounter any other individuals. When we were ready for dinner, we approached the front desk to ask for a room service menu and were told that they did not offer room service, however, we could order food from th

Honey Creek Resort

Resort was nice. We went at a busy time (end of spring break) so the service at the restaurant was terrible and the pool area was way too crowded. It is in beautiful location and has plenty to do. I would definitely recommend it just not at a busy time of year.

1st class resort that NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
My wife and I had our wedding reception at this location. The Good---The facility is absolutely beautiful and the amenities that come along with the resort are definitely pleasing. The grounds are beautiful and well-kept as well as the hotel rooms were clean. The additional amenities such as the water park, cabins, and free wi-fi enhance the overall experience. The Bad--- -Staying in the cabins are chaotic family had to move, drain backed up and keys did not work. -Wedding cake dropped -Bar and wait staff very poor no consistency no customer service -Had to make 2 requests for items like N/A beer and red wine -Wait staff was supposed to pour wine for guests did not happen -Terrible brunch the day after reception (did not get what was agreed upon) poor tasting food watch out for the potatoes -Front desk needs a lot of improvment did not had out gift bags when guests checked in as instructed -Front desk staff seem overwhelmed except for night shift Pat -Did not receive the Honey Moon suite even though it was in the package deal -Wanted to charge us for extended check out without knowing the situation we declined to pay the fee also the fee was waived Overall not impressed and will not be recommending to friends or family. You have the facilities to be considered a first class resort but the services need to be improved to charge a rate equivalent to a first class resort. Other locations in Iowa can do just as good if not better. Conclusion: need improvement drastically, need quality professional staff, need to improve customer service, very frustrated and disgusted. Still negotiating final bill
