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 enjoyed the on-site water park, 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.

"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"
