“Fun, relaxing trip”

We visited the Inn at the Waterpark for a mini family vacation. The inn was clean, inviting, and very fun for the kids. The restaurant next door is an absolute must for breakfast! Breakfast buffet was $2.99 and delicious.

"Great Place to Stay Before Going on a Cruise"

This hotel was quiet, clean, up-to-date, and conveniently located. The staff was friendly and there was a free miniature golf course for guests to use. Also they had an adequate, free breakfast. We were able to have free, covered parking for our car for the week we were on a cruise, and a $10/person, round-trip fare to the ship. It was a very enjoyable stay at the Inn at the Waterpark.

"We will return"

The hotel was clean, the rooms were large, and the price was right. For the itinerary we had planned for this trip, not only was the price right but the location was too. We were within walking distance of the Lone Star Flight Museum, Schlitterbahn's water park, and Moody Gardens.I could easily recommend this hotel to friends and family.
