The Good
Guests responded positively to the hotel's cleanliness, waterpark and location.

Several reviewers complimented the Americana Resort on its cleanliness, regarding their individual rooms and the hotel in general. More than one guest described their room as "exceptionally clean", some guests mentioned their rooms were very spacious, and some remarked the microwave and fridge were very convenient.

Many lodgers remarked positively about the on-site waterpark, and commented that it was clean, "great for the kids", and not crowded.

The location was praised by some as close enough to the Falls and other tourist attractions in the area, but far enough away from the "hustle and bustle" to be relaxing.

The on-site spa was touted as relaxing and professional by a few.

The Bad
Guests responded negatively to the price of food, the temperature of the waterpark's water, and the poor WIFI connection.

Many guests were disappointed with the price of the food at the on-site restaurants, and recommended going elsewhere for food. The quality of food was also disappointing to some.

Some reviewers commented the water at the waterpark was too cold, especially for the smaller children. Other negative issues a few guests had about the waterpark was that it was too small and badly designed.

A few guests had problems with the WIFI, in that they couldn't get a good connection. It was pointed out this was an issue within the rooms as well as the communal areas such as the lobby and restaurants.

A few guests had negative experiences with the staff, and remarked that they were unfriendly and unhelpful.

"We travelled with 2 small children. Water park did not open till 4 the day we arrived. The day that we were going to spend the majority of the day at the waterpark, the heater was broken. The kids stayed for approx. 30 minutes and were shivering. I would not go back there again, Kathy BLack"
