The rooms need updating. However, even with staffing issues (as all places have) they did there best to accommodate our requests. The shuttle to the park and around the property was great. Never waited more than 5 minutes. Would stay again.

2/10 Poor

Old hotel room with no Wi-Fi
No Wi-Fi in the room. Room is outdated and need a renovation. Parking lot near the room was overflow. Sofa and carpet is dirty. Toilet was leaking. The room was at first floor. There are people passing room and talking loudly. And the house cleaning crew came to knock door at 8am to ask us when are we checking out. Very unwelcoming experience. I guess the hotel wouldn’t care about it since they mainly have the cruise customers stayed there. Overall Felt like a motel than a resort

6/10 Good

Large expansive resort. The room was nice. But the shower curtain was building up the reddish brown stains from soap and not drying. Couple of black spots that looked like mold. During the check-in, Jayden at the desk had a condescending attitude, as if we were beneath the status to stay at McKinley. Continued to explain how cold and hot breakfast is different.

2/10 Poor

Staff not helpful or accommodating, we had no housekeeping per 2 nights and last morning no electricity, and in spite off all of that they couldn’t give us 15 minutes extra to leave the room

Nice quiet property but missing in modern amenities - eg no wifi in the rooms. No fridge or microwave. Parking is very inconvenient and confusing.
