We stayed for 4 nights and had a pleasant experience. The room was large enough for 3 adults to be comfortable. We appreciated having the sink outside of the bathroom so multiple people could get ready at the same time. It would have been nice to have a bench or small table in the bathroom to lay your clothes on... More

I spent the night here again last week after spending the night last summer as well. I would say the hotel is an average hotel for the price. There is nothing special about it. The beds are comfortable, the room was large( I was told I was upgraded to a deluxe room) it had a separate sitting area with fireplace... More

Exceptionally well run water park hotel in the Northwoods. I stayed for five nights on a work trip and found out locals also stay to give their kids a water park weekend. Lots of Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa license plates on nice cars in the parking lot. It is super clean with excellent service. My room was on first floor... More

We had a hard time finding a hotel in the Minocqua area at the last minute so this is where we stayed. It is great if you're traveling with kids and/or pet. They have an arcade, water park and pool, a lovely grassy back yard, and every room has a patio/balcony. The included breakfast was a great treat and took... More

We ended up here after not finding a hotel in St. Germaine for a 2 nite stay. Didn't want to pay the extra cost of having a water park, when we figured we wouldn't use it, since we were there for a wedding. But the "kids" (ages 18 and 25) loved having the waterpark- and were able to enjoy it... More

Just a great place to stay. The arcade is a nice touch and lots of fun. I spent only a couple of nights. The rooms felt very clean and I was comfortable walking on the carpet barefooted. The restaurant may be a little overpriced but hey, it is a hotel. And there are plenty of other dining options in Minocqua... More

We can't thank Mary at the front desk enough for making our stay great, because otherwise it would have been a nightmare. Drunken wedding guests had taken our patio chairs and left us beer cans and cigarette ashes, not to mention their boisterous partying before the wedding even began! Not only did Mary find us another room, but she upgraded... More

My husband and I brought our three girls up for a weekend get away and stayed here and fell in love! The room was very spacious, clean, easy access and the hotel staff where some of the best we have encountered. Its very close to downtown action but far enough away it quite and peaceful.

While we only stayed one night, as we were in town for a wedding, The Waters is very clean throughout, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the bed was one of the best I've ever had in a hotel, and I've stayed in lots of them. Just south of the heart of Minocqua, you can easily get to where... More

My husband and I stayed at the Waters this past week for a night as he had work to do. While we were there I got to meet some friends and hang out in the water park. It was almost 9 at night and tons of kids were in the park. We decided to head to the hot tub but... More

Dar Guest, Thank you for staying with us this past week. We are sorry that you found so many children in the waterpark at night. With summer being a peak family vacation time, it is hard to predict if families will be out visiting the Minocqua area or will stay within the hotel to enjoy the amenities. It's unfortunate that...
