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

My family stayed at the Waters on our way to MN. We enjoyed the pool and large hot tub. Breakfast was nice. The lobby was nicely decorated. I wish we could have been there longer. The front desk was friendly and helpful. Our room was just what we asked for. We went before the water slides were open for the... More

This may well be a lovely hotel, but we won't get to stay there since they screwed up our reservation! We were supposed to go next Saturday for a wedding and specifically asked for a room with a completely separate bedroom when I booked months ago. I know I didn't just make this conversation up as my parents and my... More

I went with my mom and three kids to Minocqua on July 21st-23rd and we stayed at this property. By going mid-week, we avoided the crowds and any potential wedding parties. The water park is small, but clean and well maintained. The lifeguards were very attentive. My 8 year old enjoyed the two enclosed body waterslides, but my 6 and... More

We are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay here at The Waters. We are in the process of refurbishing the game room and I think our guests will love the new additions. I appreciate your thoughts about the wall air conditioning units and that is a project on our agenda for this next year. We hope that... More

My husband and I had a weekend getaway and this hotel was great. Rooms were real clean, breakfast was good, and pool/water park area was fun! There are a lot of food options. There pizza from the Den was real good. Only complaint is the person at the front desk was a bit crabby, but we managed. Would definitely recommend!

Stopped to stay for a night and it was a great first experience with my dog in the hotel! The staff was very accommodating and hospitable. The continental breakfast was a decent spread too. Very impressed! The balcony was peaceful and the beds were very comfortable.

They did have a wedding over the 4th weekend and they were very loud very long into the night. Luckily they didn't wake my kid. The Waters could do something different regarding this in the future. FYI they didn't tell their guests that this was going on either at booking or when we checked in

As a returning guest of the Waters, we are never disappointed. Everything from the staff to the accommodations far exceeded our expectations. They are the friendliest, cleanest, hotel in the area. Thanks for all you do to make our stay a relaxing and stress free stay. See you next year

This has become our number 1 place to stay now when visiting Minocqua. Staff is ALWAYS friendly and fun to chat with. Rooms are very clean and very nice. Free breakfast is also great. Pool area another plus and very nice. Location is great! I can't say anything negative about this place. You have to check it out.
