Let me take the time to apologize for the lack of service you encountered while at our property. We take pride in our service and cleanliness and to hear that it was lacking for your group is disappointing to me. I have followed up with our Executive Housekeeper and have updated our procedures to make sure this does not happen... More

We stayed here for four nights this past month as our family vacation. We have a 4 1/2 year old and 1 1/2 year old. We opted for the lofted suite mainly for extra room and the patio to the outside. The lofted suite was nice - the upstairs loft area is huge even with the two beds. However, the... More

I loves the water park as much as kids. The restaurant on site had good food and it was nice plus to have it right there. We had the queen split room which was great with kids. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Free breakfast because we stayed on Sunday night was a plus too. I paid 108 for the... More

I came to Brainerd because I have a presentation at St Joseph's Hospital tomorrow. I would likely have stayed at the Country Inn or the Holiday Inn Express (no Hilton or Marriott properties here). I noticed that the Arrowwood folks from Alexandria have this joint up here, so let's check it out. My findings below. Let me get the bad... More

The room was clean and nicely arranged. The two beds were at either end of the room with the bathroom taking up some of the space in between - making a sort of dividing line. This worked great to separate the "kid space" from the "parent space." The breakfast was better than expected (although I was surprised to find out... More

Our experience here was in summary not worth the price. We arrived at 3:00 and still couldn't check in. The water park was not near as elaborate as the pictures show and they only have free continental breakfast on weekdays. I am sorry but to hike your rates up $75 for the weekend is extreme and to not even offer... More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your experience was at our facility. I am sorry that you felt you didn't receive the value for the price paid. Weekends, in summer, are generally more expensive where ever you may go due to it being a higher demand time of the year. We hope that you keep... More
