We spent two nights at this newer property, en route to a family house further north in Minnesota. The property looked newly renovated. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The water park was surprisingly empty over this holiday weekend. We took full advantage of the water park and spent several hours there. Breakfast was included with the room. The breakfast... More

Sixteen members of our family stayed at the Rapid River Lodge June 25-28. The group consists of people ranging in age from 2-72. We all found things to do that were very enjoyable. The children and young adults liked the water park. Some of us went golfing, and some played miniature golf and went go-carting. Saturday morning we made a... More

The bed though not like home,were close. It had a rustic north woods feel. This would be a good family inn. Prices were good but we were there in off peak season. I would definitely recommend it and go back in the future.

Thank you Robert for the great review and all the nice comments. Those beds are all new Serta Perfect Sleepers and the guest response has been super! I think the four pillows on every bed, both firm and soft, really help to give the the homey type feel. I was happy to hear your family enjoyed it. The family memories... More

A very good deal for a mid-range hotel. I decided to stay here instead of at the conference location and saved $30 a night. A good call. The entrance can be a bit confusing on the first try because it is off a side road and shared with a fast food place. But after the first time it is not... More

This is one of the best places I have been. A place where we feel at home, with wooden decorations, nice lobby, nice staff. I was there during the week, so no noise problems with young children. Breakfast was good, room was clean, bed was comfortable and internet was reliable and fast.

This is way overpriced (~$200/night) for what you get. The beds and linens are very nice and comfortable. But for rates like that, you shouldn't have to make a bed (the pull-out sleeper in the room), you should be able to get water pressure from the shower (ours was gravity powered), you should be able to get hot water (warm...

This was our first stay at this hotel. We come to the area monthly so we thought we would try this hotel out. The rooms were very clean and the check-in went well. The only thing was lots of kids screaming and running up and down the hallways until 10:30pm. I understand that this hotel has a nice large water... More

The staff is incredibly nice! The water park is so much fun and the beds are some of the most comfortable you can find in a chain. Plus the fact they have a full concession stand AND an indoor outdoor hottub, I know for sure I will be coming back again!

Jacob, that’s as nice a review as a person could ask for, thank you. All the beds were replaced last spring with brand new Serta's and we have gotten wonderful comments about them.

Great Hotel! Cleans rooms, cute decor, and fun water park. Our 5 year old and 1 year old had a blast. All the staff was very friendly and helpful too. My only suggestion would be to have breakfast stocked with fresh food at 930 as well.
