Upon arrival we were greeting by a very friendly staff working the front desk. They explained everything about their hotel and what amenities were available for us. The water park was awesome and their continental breakfast was awesome especially their pancake and waffle maker; also coffee was always available.

We stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean, quiet at night. The complimentary breakfast buffet is just your average food. Bagels, toast waffles, cereal, juice, coffee, and milk. Nothing special but with all of the other restaurants in the area, getting a good breakfast isn't hard to do. Each room has an outdoor...

We were in town for a funeral and thought we would have some fun with the kids. This turned out to be a pleasent suprise, nice water park and a really nice northwoods feel to the room. We were on the top floor so the ceilings were vaulted and the room was well designed. Only bad part is there was... More

We stayed here on a Sunday night, our room had a patio out the back, but our view was blocked by a large tent, which housed a rather loud party for the night. The hotel has a small indoor water park, so there were children, running up and down the hallways. Our room was very nice and clean, the staff... More

Very friendly staff, decent location but not walkable to the shops of Minocqua, pretty short drive though. My family and I liked the rustic lodge look of the lobby, As for the water park its fine and really pretty good for small kids but my older daughter might not agree that its a water park. We stayed in a 2... More

The only thing I didn't like was that we showed up an hour early for check-in and the clerk didn't even check on our room, she just said please come back in an hour. Other than that we found the hotel extremely clean and the continental breakfast was excellent.

Family trip was fantastic! Room (2Q fireplace) was very spacious and comfy. Waterpark is really just two slides with indoor/outdoor pools and whirlpools. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay again. The only downside was the people in the room above us were constantly opening and closing their balcony door and running through their room.

From the reservation, to check in to our entire 3 day stay, everything was just great. A beautiful facility with a perfect location. Big clean rooms with a nice water park, on-site restaurant, arcade and stunning lobby. Nice complimentary breakfast that many resorts do not offer. The wife and daughters loved the on-site Starbucks as well. Had a couple minor... More

The room was not ver clean, very dusty. Upon arrival I discovered the previous guests clothes, including disgusting underwear, still in the dresser drawers, this is just negligence on the part of housekeeping. Some of the bedding had stains, including what looked like blood on the pillowcase. Also at peak checkout time, staff was using a luggage cart to refill... More

Cleanliness in rooms is extremely important and our staff tries their best to ensure things like this do not happen. We are terribly sorry these items were missed during inspection and our housekeeping department will review their procedures so this type of thing is caught. We are truly sorry and hope that you will try us again in the future.... More
