The suites in the lodge were very spacious, clean and comfortable. We stayed in the 'Wolf Den' Suite which has bunk beds with a cave theme. We were able to save money by signing up for an upgrade to this suite based on availability. This cost less money than if we had originally reserved the suite.
Everything was very contained and convenient within the lodge including the activities, story time, arcade, ice cream shop, and various restaurants such as Dunkin Donut and Pizza Hut Express. There are also a lot of restaurants located within a one mile radius outside of the lodge so you don' t need to go very far to eat.
You can also make two days of the water park because they allow you to stay until 5pm the next day.
What we would change: They have strict requirements on height for various water slides and rides. At the time our son just missed the cut off for a few rides to go on with us. So it felt like what he could go on was a bit limited.
It can also be very pricey but they do run specials and offer discounts throughout the year. We went on a Sunday and Monday night since it was cheaper. You can view the deals for different months on their website or you can sign up to receive e-mail offers.
