"They advertise a waterslide, however they not open the waters slide. I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now and both times my kids were disapointed that they would not open the waterslide. When ask at the front desk why. They say" its a hotel assocation reguartion that requires a lfe guard on duty. They do not employee lifeguards. I suggested that they remove the waterslide from there ads as that is false advertising."
