We had a fantastic 2-night-getaway at Metropolis. The hotel is clean and well maintained, the staff is incredibly friendly and accommodating, the water park and Action City were perfect for our family. Also loved the dog friendly rooms. We will absolutely be back. Our kids cried when we left. Fun family weekend!
