Staff were wonderful, nice soft bed, rooms were very clean. Easy check in and check out. Hot breakfast served in the restaurant connected to the hotel was excellent. The wifi was fast and reliable. We will definitely be booking here for our return trip in a month or so!! Thanks for a lovely stay!!

We chose this hotel because of the waterpark and ability for there to be something to do for all of the kids. We were delighted by the rooms, they were lodge like in decor but very comfortable and clean. The temperatures outside were brutal, -23 at night, but inside it was cozy and comfortable. The staff at the front desk... More

When the weather outside is 20 below, what better way to beat the cold than "camp" and enjoy the indoor water park. This lodge is outstanding with the decor, the inviting fireplace in the lobby, and the pleasant staff. Each room has a cabin name, and all the rooms have rustic furniture, which gives it a cozy feeling, and the... More

We chose this hotel because we have eaten in the grill before and loved the food. We came as a couple needing a place to stay away from the over populated family house during the holiday season. The fact that we could have amazing food and drinks with in walking distance to our room made our night!!!

Arrowwood Lodge at Brainerd was a special treat, especially since it was for a business trip. My room was beautiful and rustic and the bed provided me a great nights sleep.

Our room was great. Very spacious and comfortable. The kid's room was wonderfully painted with rocks attached to the wall that my son was pumped to climb on. The food was great. The breakfast buffet has a modest selection of food, but appropriate for the price. The waterpark is great too. Lots of fun!

I had grandchildren at the waterpark while their mother went to grandson's hockey game. We had a nice suite on 2nd floor. We ordered room service, a package deal with pizza that was reasonably priced and good. When it was time to call it a night, there was running in the hallway until 11 pm, and right above us, there...
