Love this resort! The team members are amazing! Each year we come they’ve improved something. We always rave about our time here each time we come home. Always recommend this place to our friends and family.



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!
