this place sucks
It was like someone put a bandaid over that place. Rude staff maybe one guy was polite. They don’t even have a hot breakfast. Painting over mold and rust is gross but that’s what they did. Stains on our carpet. And the basketball hoop in the pool which is huge fell on both of my kids and left bruises and cuts all over and they didn’t even seem to care. I’ll never go there ever again.

The front desk lady was so rude and not understanding of the situation at all. She was very unwelcoming and the hotel smelled awful. I do not recommend this “hotel” to anyone.

Our stay was extremely Meh.
I had specifically booked this room as a stopping point between Aberdeen, SD and Topeka, KS due to the waterslide for my son. When I arrived the front desk person was super friendly and dare I say bubbly. She did inform me of the pet fee. I told her I was aware but there was no where to mark on the app to mark that you were bringing one. She informed me of several things that were not working. The hot tub, several of the card readers on the outside of the building. She informed me of the process to use the waterslide which thankfully was working, and that when we were ready she had to let us in and turn the slide on. After swimming I went to shower & there was no shampoo in the dispenser. She said the dispensers were suppose to be removed with the remodel. She happened to be staying at the hotel and gave us some of her personal shampoo. After being told dogs needed to be taken out back I discovered that no where in the back of the hotel was no grass anywhere near. The hotel was a little disappointing. The only bright spot was the front desk staff. Abby was the shiny spot.
