We stayed for a week during a local motorcycle rally and couldn't have made a better choice. Very clean with exceptionally comfortable beds. 2 couples stayed in the 2 bedroom suite and it was perfect! Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Somehow our room got missed on the cleaning schedule but I just said something to the desk clerk and... More

Came here for a conference and arrived late on a Thursday night. Brought my family of 5 along to enjoy the ammentities. Front desk service was really nice and upgraded my room to a fireplace. Rooms are clean, spacious, and have comfy beds. Waterpark was perfect for my 2 year old, but the 10 and 11 year old were bored... More

While my family had an okay time during our stay, we were disappointed. First of all not everyone does get aways on the weekends. We were very disappointed that the water slides were closed during our whole stay. So I paid basically to stay in a hotel with pools, which I could have done at any hotel in Minoqcua but... More

Spent the weekend with a group of friends(7 adults). We rented a loft room and it was very nice. There was plenty of room for all of us. The hot tub was awesome and the pool area was very nice. Also the beds were very comfortable. Had meals from the restaurant both nights and the food was very good! Kudos... More

Staying in a water park was one experience we never thought we'd have, especially when traveling with our dog Daisy. We found ourselves looking for a room in Minocqua and were impressed by the exterior of the hotel and the solid very nice rustic lunge chairs on every patio and deck. We do not understand why hotels spend millions on... More

The Waters is a pleasant hotel located in the scenic Minocqua, WI. I think the hotel has an abundance of potential, but it's been worn down by a lot of use. Little changes could go a long way, and the staff seemed content to not be very solutions oriented. The Waters is a great place for a family weekend (large... More

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 are so glad you had such a wonderful experience at our resort. We are surrounded by beautiful tall pines which makes us a great place to observe wildlife. We often get comments from guests that like having their coffee on their patio or deck and take in the peace and tranquility of the outdoors. Thank you for sharing and... More
