The Poor 1) Both beds were extremely hard with old depressed mattresses. 2) Water Park is only open until 9:00 pm and when it shuts down so does the hot tub. They closed the Park suddenly for 15 minutes where everyone had to get out of the water because they do not have enough employees working. 3) Room service/restaurant also... More

We stayed for three nights for a getaway to Minnesota. Our kids are 10 and 11 and we all had a great time in the waterpark! We were there during the week and it was not busy at all - no waiting time for the waterslides. We all had a super time there! Another highlight was Buddies Games Room on... More

My family spent a week night here as a quick little get away. There four kids in our group ranging from baby to practically adult and there were activities to keep everyone happy. The family fun center wasn't discovered until late into our get away but so worth the per room fee we paid to enjoy it. The water park... More

We took our grandson here on our way up to a fishing resort in Deer River, MN. It was a fun place to stop and move our muscles after an 8 hour car ride. We had a great time on the water slides and the gigantic hot tub provided moist, hot relief to our weary muscles. We paid $10 for... More

Our kids 9 and 11 really like this hotel. The water park is never crowded and we have stayed here 4 or 5 times over last 5 years. We always pay a little extra for a suite with 2 rooms. This is worth it for us since we can put the kids to bed and have some time for ourselves... More

My family and I (3, 4, 11, and adult male) spent a few days at the Holiday Inn in Otsego, MN. Our stay was great, the front staff was friendly and helpful. The Waterpark there is kid/toddler friendly and it is a great place for a stay-cation. We mainly used the kiddie area, pool, and lazy river but my older... More

We enjoyed our stay and the kids loved the pool couldn't get them out of there. Liked that there were many restraunts close enough to walk. Would stay again rooms were lean and staff was very polite and helpful

I have stayed here for business purposes, and I would not spend my own money to stay one night here. The wait staff are amazing but that is it. I stayed in two separate rooms for my duration of time here and both were filthy. The rooms were not swept or vacuumed. Dust everywhere and on everything. One day they... More

We recently stayed for a weekend, primarily to enjoy the waterpark. It's very well done with a creative woodsy theme. We loved the water slides, lazy river and playing water basketball. There are fun water features for kids of all ages, from little ones to teens. The hotel rooms are large and we had plenty of space for four people.... More

We decided against a birthday party for our oldest and went with the stay at the hotel instead. He was not disappointed. The boys really enjoyed the water slides and the suite which they had their own separate room with a bunkbed. Purchasing the package with the passes and pizza was a great option for our family.
