Splash Harbor/Comfort Inn
While it may be tempting to hide away at home, make sure to get out and explore this winter.

The ice and snow are no reason to let the bathing suits collect dust this winter. Located just off I-71 in Bellville, Comfort Inn Splash Harbor offers indoor waterpark fun no matter the weather.
An easy drive from Cleveland, Columbus or Akron, Splash Harbor is the place to bring the family for a weekend adventure. Kids will love the tropical shipwreck theme complete with palm trees, a ship’s hull, and cannons that spray water.
Younger children have a space of their own in the waterpark; the kiddy pool is perfect for those not yet ready for the big pool, and the activity floor, where water falls from buckets and spouts anchored above, makes for hours of fun.
After splashing the day away, keep the family entertained in the hotel’s game room. Rack ’em up on the pool table, play a game of air hockey, or test your gaming skills in the video arcade.
Kids aren’t the only ones on vacation at Splash Harbor. The fitness center, continental breakfast and adults-only hot tub provide a relaxing escape for grown-ups, and parents can always unwind around the pool while comfortably keeping an eye on the gang.
For a great deal, take advantage of Splash Harbor’s Family Fun Packages that include hotel stay, waterpark passes, a pool toy, pizza and tokens for the game room.
