The kids played until they nearly dropped. Lots to do for young ones under teen years I would think. The only drawback, gross and nasty bathrooms that need cleaned. There was toilet paper, towels, trash, and things left in shower stalls. We thought about staying but I didn't like the lack of cleanliness, so we didn't get a room and... More

We stayed at Grand Harbor Resort on the first night of a vacation to the Wisconsin Dells. I have a 10 year old daughter and she loved the water park. The hotel staff were very nice and the hotel was clean and updated. We enjoyed our stay.

Weekends are busy, but it can still be fun. Noise from the water and screaming kids can be overwhelming if your ears are sensitive - there is no where for all the noise to go except bounce off the walls and echo everywhere. It can make it hard to hear anyone talking to you. Watch your own children because the... More

The Grand Harbor was a very nice resort right along the Mississippi River. In the back of the resort where tables with umbrellas where you could sight and enjoy the view.

On our first visit, we were impressed with the hotel staff's customer service. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful throughout our two-night stay. Overall, the facility is very nice. Located right along the Mississippi River with a beautiful walkway. Only drawback was the thin walls between rooms that impacted our sleep. The water park was OK. The exercise room is... More

The hotel has only 2 elevators that are 1/2 the size of your typical elevator. We waiting 10-15 minutes for an elevator each time. In order to get to the waterpark, you have to walk past the front doors - dead of winter, our walk was about 25 degrees. The locker rooms are about 50 degrees and all the toilet... More

This was our 3rd time staying at this Resort. It has a little of something for everyone and is proximity to almost everything. The view is great, there's a great restaurant inside an nightlife for the grownups is very close. What more could anyone ask for.

The hotel is very clean and well appointed. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The kids loved the waterpark and the arcade. The fact that Tony Roma's is part of the facility is a big plus. That alone has brought us back for more hotel stays and we will return often in the future. This is the perfect short... More

PROS: convenient for hotel guests; there are arcades right outside the waterpark but still within the hotel; attractions geared towards children up to pre-teens and their parents; spa, very small lazy river; 6 hoops in the basketball pool; 2 slides plus a 3rd one that uses a tube; ample seating; comfortable temperature; CONS: rusted components of the metal parts for...
