My husband and I brought our three girls up for a weekend get away and stayed here and fell in love!

While we only stayed one night, as we were in town for a wedding, The Waters is very clean throughout, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the bed was one of the best I've ever had in a hotel, and I've stayed in lots of them. Just south of the heart of Minocqua, you can easily get to where... More

My husband and I stayed at the Waters this past week for a night as he had work to do. While we were there I got to meet some friends and hang out in the water park. It was almost 9 at night and tons of kids were in the park. We decided to head to the hot tub but... More

Dar Guest, Thank you for staying with us this past week. We are sorry that you found so many children in the waterpark at night. With summer being a peak family vacation time, it is hard to predict if families will be out visiting the Minocqua area or will stay within the hotel to enjoy the amenities. It's unfortunate that...

We were in Minocqua for a wedding reception (off site) in May. I enjoyed the rustic exterior and interior of this resort. The rooms were more than adequate, clean and comfortable. Coffee-tea machine, microwave, mini-fridge; all the usual amenities. The staff is friendly and check-in was smooth and trouble free. The water park was small by most standards, but clean... More

We stayed at the Waters last August and had such a great experience that we are returning in just a few weeks. Upon our arrival we found that the staff had upgraded our room to a one room suite to give our family of six a little more space. The rooms were clean and very nicely decorated. The water park/pool... More

Ok place to stay water park was nice, rooms were a little smaller than what I thought they would be. The breakfast was well below average not much to choose from and not much available. The holiday inn has a much better breakfast than this place.

I stayed here over the weekend with my family. We reserved two rooms; one was a standard two queen room, and one was a suite with an extra room attached. Both rooms were great size and fit all of us comfortably. The ceilings were tall and rooms were clean. The water park was great for the kids (and adults)! The... More

I really enjoyed my weekend stay with my seven year old daughter and spouse. We splurged on the loft room and my daughter loved having her own space upstairs. The hotel seemed pretty full but the pool area was never overly busy. We loved being able to swim both inside and outside. We didn't hear ANY hallway or neighbor noise... More

Had a work trip and stayed here with the fam. It was PERFECT! Incredible value, huge rooms, clean, and plenty to do on-site for little ones. Rate includes breakfast (not the best I have ever had, but come on... they have waffles!) and passes to water park. This is no Great Wolf or Kalahari, but let's be honest, you don't... More

My husband and I stayed there this past weekend - you cannot beat the price for waterpark admission, bar and grill, comfortable and clean rooms, as well as free continental breakfast. The bar and grill was just a burger and fry kinda place, so if you are looking for a nice sit down this isn't the place. They put the... More
