We just returned from a weekend stay at Nick Hotel and had a great stay. It was a little chilly and windy but that didn't stop us. Check in: Very smooth. Arrived at 11:30 and pre-registered. Our kids (ds 4 and dd 6) loved the lobby, especially the big beanbags and cartoons. We changed into our suits in the changing room off the lobby and headed to the pool. Our room was ready about 3:30. Suite: Sweet and great location (building 7, 4th floor, facing the lake). We had the 2 bedroom family suite with bunkbeds and spongebob accents. my DD said her dreams had come true. The living room is very comfortable with a small table, sm fridge and microwave. The bathroom was very spacious and bright and it was nice having large bath towels (and plenty of them). I loved all the small attention to detail like, every paper product from towels, TP, to Tissues were folded in a fan shape. Even the soap had a splat shape imprint. The bedrooms were big enough to not feel closed in. The 3 TVs were great for us and it was nice having a king sized bed (but it's very firm). It's a little noisy during the day but between 9:30 p.m. - 7:30 a.m. pretty quite. Pool: What a great concept. The pools were fantastic. My DS loved the zero entry pool, we could barely get him out of there. Between the slides, water cannons, mini golf, and basket ball, we had a hard time convincing them to visit the other pool. Only the promise of sand lured them. We didn't get in the water at the other pool but the kids loved the sand pit and the toddler play area. Mall: Every time we we walked to the "mall" the kids saw new things, Dora, Blue, swans, ducks, . . . . We met Patrick and Spongebob right away and the fairly odd parents shortly there after. We were very happy with the character interactions. FOOD: We ate at pizza hut for lunch, the buffet for dinner, and the character breakfast this morning. The buffet was o.k. The kids loved it, all their favorites. The breakfast this moring was great. Lots of characters, wonderful food, very entertaining. Entertainment: We didn't see any of the shows (full) but were o.k. with that. The pool side shows were good enought for our kids. The arcade was is a little small for the amount of games and most of the token machines are not working. only stayed long enough to spend $5. All in All, we loved it and will return. We live in Florida and are always looking for a quick get away place. This one is at the top of the list.
