We spent and afternoon at this waterpark. It had 2 pools( one a hot tub) that were both indoor and outdoor. It had 2 large slides for adults and older children and then a zero entry pool for very young children with warmer water. Very nice and the kids had a ball! A nice feature is that you don't have...

This is a very clean, reasonably priced resort in the Minocqua area. Very good breakfast with many healthy items to choose from. Very helpful staff. Cleaning staff did a fast, superior job. Room on third floor was very quiet. Free wi-fi.

During spring break my family and I traveled all over northern Wisconsin. We stayed in many hotels along the way and The Waters of Minocqua was by far the best one! Our room was awesome, the kids had a blast in the waterpark, and the staff was friendly. Especially David who was very accommodating to us. We will return!

We truly enjoy the stay and play package the staff was so hospitable. They're attitude is so hometown. The waterpark was fun and clean and I love that the lounge is attached yet secluded. The outdoor hot tub was nice I wish it was a bit hotter. But the kids had a blast with no lines on the super tunnel... More

Here for Hockey State Tournament. Very convenient to the rink. Comfortable beds clean rooms and interesting shower. Very cabin like feel to the whole hotel but clean and nice. Would like to come back by motorcycle in the summer. Restaurant closed for food early but has pizza for late night. Had a walk out room and happy with it.

Great Vvalue and Friendly staff. Pub and food on site. I will stay here again! For those who like to work out the workout room is adequate as well. The pun has both food and excellent cocktails. For those used to the chain Motels offers all the same amenities and is a great value.

Had a very enjoyable weekend at the hotel. Good size room with balcony. Liked the wood furniture and decor. Makes you feel that you are in the northwoods. Our 7 yr old enjoyed the arcade and pool area. Staff was very friendly. Only complaint I would have is the continental breakfast. Very basic and the same everyday. No hot eggs... More

We visited The waters in January of 2015 for a snowmobiling trip. The rooms were ok, could use a little upgrading but was clean. The kids loved the water park area and arcade.
