This resort is a theme park for families including water parks and go karts and an arcade. I didn't come for any of this as I had not known this at the time of my booking. Other than some loud kids running up and down the hall, the staff provides service akin to a higher rated hotel and the beds,... More

Ugh! What a dump! I brought my family here on a quick little getaway! What a waste. The place is nasty and run down. We spent less than an hour in waterpark as it was gross, food laying in water and 20 kids in the hot tub. The arcade was fine nothing great. The room was run down, carpets filthy,... More

Fun from the moment we walked in until we had to sadly leave to return to reality! If you live in the area skip the Dells, or the citites stay here instead. Or if you are just passing through check out Wisconsin hospitality at it's ABSOLUTE FINEST!

The hotel was being remodeled and yet didn't hear a thing and the staff there was great. I would return as it was during an off time, Sunday night, and the rate was excellent for the night and the kids had a great time.

We had a good time at Metropolis with a bunch of family ranging in age from 6 to 64. We had 4 rooms on the end closer to Action City. The 3 first floor rooms were pretty quiet for road noise but our 3rd floor King room was a bit noisy with the interstate traffic. The room darkening and noise... More

amazing suite for my fiancé and I! Even though the place is aimed for kids, it was quiet and comfortable, our cable was not working and that was fixed right away and they gave up free drink coupons for the pub. It was one of the best hotel stays I have ever had! We are heading back and bringing the... More

Compared to quite a few other waterpark hotels of similar size we have visited, this one did not meet the mark and we will not return. Woman at checkout told us our room was not ready and we would have to wait, even though we paid extra for a guaranteed early check in. After she re-looked at reservation, she then... More

New Years Eve 2015 in Eau Claire. Upon arrival at the hotel front desk, I actually felt like I was checking in to a convenience store for the weekend. Soda, candy, trinkets & stuffed animals have taken over the lobby & front desk area at Metropolis. Lots of screaming little kids and chaos (but it was New Years Eve Day....... More

We spent three days here with 12 people, four rooms,etc. With the exception of one staff person (tall blond young man, working on Friday with laundry service, met him in the elevator, every time he was extremely pleasant, professional, and good to converse with) the rest of the staff in action city and pools were not happy people. Just a... More

The kids enjoyed the waterpark. It was small enough for me to sit in one location and keep a close eye on them while they played independently. I appreciated the lifeguards making sure everyone was in a tube for the lazy river so there wasn't running/roughousing we've experienced at other parks. There was plenty of staff on hand at the...
