We won't ever stay here again. The point of a water park hotel is for the kids to have fun, the waterpark is also the reason the hotel is more expensive. The hotel room was kept up for the most part, but the life guards are all crabby, stand in a big group chatting not doing their job. The main... More

We loved this hotel and would highly recommend it to others. Everything was extremely clean and I was pleasantly surprised by the water park. My kids loved it - especially the slide! The employees at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful. We will definitely be back!

This is a nice Holiday Inn, however, I was quoted a rate of 124.99 which with taxes, should have totaled about 135. shortly after checking in, I went on line to check balance on credit card and noticed there was a preliminary charge of 158. I questioned this and was assured that they always add a percentage just in case,... More

Staff was top notch and very friendly. Priced very reasonable for what this hotel has to offer. On site restaurant and lounge is also great.

We stayed here over a weekend. The hotel and room were super clean. We tried to check in early but we couldn't check in until 4 due to other events at the hotel which was a bummer because my son needed to get ready to play hockey in Faribault and we needed to change clothes. The water park was ok....seemed... More

Great clean place with comfortable bed! Air worked great. Low shower pressure. Wrist bands for water park were included and kids ate free for supper and breakfast. Kid pool was very nice and warm for the little ones and the slides were great.
