    Check-in time begins at 4pm or as rooms become available. However, you are welcome to play in the waterpark as soon as it opens. In the event that your room is not ready, we recommend that you pack a smaller bag with bathing suits and swim gear and leave the rest of your luggage locked in your car. Stop by the hotel front desk to let us know you’re here and pick up your waterpark wrist bands. There are lockers, showers and changing areas available for your use in the waterpark. We will be getting room(s) ready while you enjoy our amenities!

  • Do you accept debit cards or check cards?

    Yes. Please be aware that if you plan to provide us with your debit card/check card at check-in that the charges will be processed immediately along with a 10% authorization for incidentals. Should you decide to change your method of payment at anytime, Metropolis Resort will process a refund to your card that day; however, funds may not be released to your account for up to 7-10 business days. Metropolis Resort is not responsible for the loss of use of these funds or any possible overdraft charges.

  • Can I pay for someone else’s room if I’m not staying at the resort?

    Yes!  To ensure the proper safety of our guests we do require a Credit Card Authorization Form to be filled out by the authorized credit card holder prior to the guests arrival.  We ask that you please provide us with a copy of the front and back of the credit card intended for payment as well as a copy of the credit card holders photo ID. Once we have received this form we will apply the appropriate charges to the credit card intended for use.  Please note that a valid credit card is still required at check-in; the Credit Card Authorization form DOES NOT serve as a substitution to our policy.
