The hotel is beautifully decorated!! Was disappointed that the juice machine for the free breakfast was out of order on Saturday but they didn't put out any pitchers of juice to compensate for this. Housekeeper turned our heat off in our room we came back to a freezing cold room which I was NOT happy about and they didn't put... More

We visit the water park here several times per year. It is always warm and the staff is great. This water park is a bit smaller than others we have visited but it is the perfect size for my family. Our kids are 2, 4, 6, and 8. My husband and I can sit on one of the lounge chairs... More

The waters is a very nice place with nice rooms, and a nice pool area. That being said, it is obviously managed by people who are either really cheap or not concerned about customer satisfaction. The hallway leading to our room was freezing, which is a big problem when walking back and forth to the pool (pool is on the... More

Dear Craig, The Waters does have Management that truly cares about the experiences our guests have and we work hard to achieve perfection for our guests. We started a new menu and pizzas in our restaurant a few weeks back and the demand for "dining in" has tripled since we did that. We were not as prepared for influx of... More

The staff was very helpful in getting the room set up, Heidi in particular went out of her way to make our party room very accommodating, from the beginning to the party end. The tables were elegant for the meal and cleared away for the music and dancing that followed. She stayed late to set up the area again for... More

My family selected the Waters as our base camp for a weekend of snowmobiling and ice fishing. This was my first time here, and I was surprised by how clean and spacious the room was. We had three couples, and we stayed in a loft room for a very reasonable price for a weekend. The water area is nothing like... More

My 10yr old son and family friends stayed here on Christmas night. The lobby is impressive - all stuffed animals and a huge beautiful Christmas tree too! We stayed in a mezzanine bedroom, one double up the top and two doubles and a pull out sofa down below and we all (7 of us) fit in. The kids loved the... More

We thought The Waters was an okay place, no big problems or anything, but nothing to write home about. We did think it was really pushing it to claim a "water park". The space is good sized with many tables and chairs but the actual water features were pretty minimal. The arcade was nice and we'll kept for small kids.... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us your review of our hotel. We apologize for the experience you had in the bar area. The bartender with the "black hands" is a wonderful individual and very dedicated to giving you the best guest experience she can. She is an artist on the side and unfortunately tried a new paint...

Rooms are nice and beds very comfy. The outside doors don't have key card access and the one that did, didn't work. We had to walk around to the front in full snowmobile clothes every time we wanted in. Most staff was very professional. Housekeepers excellent!
