I visited Key Lime Cove with family last weekend. Price was similar to other hotels with indoor waterparks, and I think the hotel portion was nicer than many of those. Hotel was certainly clean, and we did not have any problems with noise. The waterpark is small compared to a mega, Wisconsin Dells -style waterpark, but it is fun for... More

Needed a place for the grandchildren to play as we were having a few cold days in the midwest and couldn't get out on the boat. They had loads of fun. They have 5 water slide rides, a basketball pool, a swimming area for smaller children, a hot tub for adults, snack shop near pool. Played for several hours and... More

We visited Great America and spend the night at Key Lime Cove with our 4 children and one of their friends. The kids absolutely LOVED the hotel, indoor waterpark, huge arcade, and restaurant! They cannot wait to go back! Very nice hotel. The indoor waterpark bathrooms were not as clean as I had hoped, but overall, it was a great... More

Pros: Rooms were spacious and very clean. Plenty of choices for food and the prices weren't too bad. Mostly kid type of food. Very festive looking. Cons: Had to wait for inner tubes for the lazy river and the elevator wasn't working sometimes. We had to take the stairs to the 4th floor a few times.

This vacation close to home was a nice last minute "last days of summer" fling! The kids had a great time in the indoor water park and slides. We will definitely be coming back no matter what the season!!

I visited here Aug 11-12th, my room was room 2017. I felt something itchy, so tried to sleep but couldn't. I called the service middle of the night, so we decided to change the blanket. But nothing changed. I had 2 boys who were completely sleeping, I really wanted to change the room but of course I couldn't. I talked... More

The rooms had such a beautiful decor and were very clean! The staff was very friendly and helpful! I loved the additional amenities and packages that were offered by Key Lime. Through their reservations we were able to purchase a package to Medieval Times which my family thoroughly enjoyed. They also have daily funtivities for the little ones, a shuttle... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a one bedroom suite. The place is very clean and very friendly. The waterpark is beautiful and the kids loved it. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the life guards as they were constantly moving and looking for trouble. Some of the best trained guards I have seen at a waterpark. The... More

With three young kids, I was a little nervous about bringing my kids here without my husband or a friend. But the pool was terrific, and the lifeguards were absolutely everywhere, checking deadspots constantly. They probably was one every 15 feet! The room was clean too. The only thing I hated was the resort fee, I truly didn't understand the... More

This was a great place to vacation with my son. I was a little concerned that he wouldn't be able to do much at the waterpark, but despite being 4, he was able to go on most of the water slides. We had a blast!
