I loved this place and would go back again next time we visit the area. Staff was helpful, and rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast was pretty good. The water park was the perfect size for our small children and also included some nice water slides for bigger kids/adults.

We have vacationed in Minocqua and the area for over 30 yrs. and have so many wonderful memories of this great vacation destination. When our daughter became engaged last August she announced that she and her fiance wanted to have the wedding in Minocqua. Since they live in Madison and the two families live in Menasha and Kenosha, we were... More

I stayed here last minute with my family at the tail end of a long vacation. We stayed in a loft suite and were really surprised by the size of the room. We had more than enough space to move around. The water park wasn't really my favorite, but my younger cousin definitely enjoyed it (he did not want to... More

We are frequent visitors to the Minocqua area as we have family here. We stay at The Waters between 8 and 15 nights a year and our kids love it. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is usually immaculate. The water park area is great and the kids have a ton of fun. The slides are their favorite... More

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
