How to Get There
We live locally and had heard of this place, so we decided to check it out for a night. Overall it was okay, but worth about half of what we spent for the night. We were allowed to check in early, which was a plus. Upon entering our room there was an almond laying in the middle of the carpet and a squashed bug in the bathroom. Those things are small but don’t inspire confidence in the cleanliness of the room. There was also a squashed cricket in the middle of the hallway outside our room that remained there for the entirety of our stay. The shuttle to the water park was quick and convenient. The water park was smaller than expected and my kids (13, 12 & 10) had fun for a couple hours and then they were done. We had dinner at the sports bar restaurant. The food was actually quite good, but overpriced. The bed was comfortable and the room was pretty spacious for a hotel room. For breakfast we ended up going offsite. The only options on location were a coffee shop type place with limited food options, or a ridiculously expensive breakfast buffet at the Cantina. Also disappointing was the “Riverwalk.” It was very small. Overall, it wasn’t terrible, but we definitely left feeling like we wasted our money.
When I come to DFW, I always meet a girlfriend and her kids at the Gaylord Texan for a night or two. It is close to the airport (easy to get to when arriving from the airport) but is huge resort with several restaurants and a nice lobby bar. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but honestly, we are hardly in the room. I like the "store" that has coffees, snacks, cokes etc. and also there is a smaller coffee bar near the lobby check in. The Paradise Springs water park is a big draw, but can be crowded. They do run a shuttle from the hotel to the water park frequently. The actual pool at the hotel is on the small side and gets very crowded if the water park isn't open. It is nice to stay in one place for meals and entertainment. We have always enjoyed our stay here!
I was on a business trip here in June and although the room was comfortable clean and quiet the rest of the facility was not that great.
It appears it’s more geared towards kids/families.
I believe we ate at each restaurant and had catered food to our meetings. The restaurants were not that good although the cater food was pretty good.
Parking is ridiculous $18 per day.
Staff seemed adequate.
Lastly I’m not impressed by the responses the hotel will give to unhappy customers it seems like it’s a very canned response. 😟
We have booked rooms here around the Christmas holidays to have a mini staycation as well as end of summer retreat after the kids go back to school and it's fun for visitors as well as locals. The Christmas lights inside and out are spectacular but be aware that the minute school lets out for the holiday, this place is very challenging and overrun with kids. Book early December mid week if you can!
This place is massive so you best have comfy shoes with you. It's very 'resort casual' for the most part and usually teeming with families with a hundred kids. Don't come here for a quiet getaway! If it's not the kids, it's the convention center bringing in expense accounts. So be aware that reservations weeks out may be in order as the restaurants may not be able to seat you until 9pm or later.
The Food. Very pedestrian and quite pricey for the family visitors. We have tried every restaurant except the steakhouse and the expense account travelers may have it. I can't understand how families can afford to dine here and I guess that is why you see so may coolers coming in the door with the luggage. The other dining options are outside the property and they are fairly average at best.
The rooms are clean and well kept, staffing are very 'can-do'. This is now a Marriott property and they have done a nice job with managing the complex.
The Lazy River is fantastic, especially the first week of Sept after the kids have gone back to school. I had the river by myself and was just a lazy bum all day. Bliss.
We came here from 5 hours away for a mini vacation hoping to having fun with the kids. We were unable to do paradise springs this morning due to storms. I did not realize I needed to reserve all their special summerfest Smurf events.
So, we decided to book both Smurf escape rooms. I woke up and tried to book ony computer at 7 AM. It said there was an error, so I called the number on the website. I told them I was already at the hotel and wanted to book both escape rooms. The lady on the phone said I had to go to the concierge desk and ask and said someone would be there. So, I went down at 7:20 and no one was there but a sign saying see the front desk. The front desk said they couldn't help me and I'd have to wait for concierge. So I did. Then when they got there they said they don't sell those events at their desk. I told them I'd been sent to them. The man working their tried to help by calling multiple people. He finally got someone on the phone that said they could help me but when she looked up reservations, there were no more for the day.
It's turned out to be a bit of a bummer trip and kinda wish we were across the street now at Great Wolf Lodge.
At least the room was clean.
