I requested a first floor room, for the patio because apparently there are no balconies in the 2 bedroom condos. When I arrived they assigned us a 3rd floor condo. The desk agent was very nice and changed us to a first floor. Housekeeping came the next morning and walked into my room to change the garbage and bring new... More

If you are looking for a water park I would say go elsewhere. The wave pool is so small 9 inner tubes is a lot. There is no lazy river, unless you go inside. Go to Noahs Ark. Other wise the rooms were nice, staff excellent and helpful. Restaurants. So/so. Very expensive drinks.

We were passing through the Dells and were meeting up with friends already booked at Chula Vista. I was nervous due to all the negative reviews. We ended up in a golf villa room. Our room was nice and seemed much newer than what other people spoke about in the reviews. AC started out ok but room was up to... More

We've been to the Chula Vista 3 times and it's the only hotel I'll stay in the Dells. The location is great since you're so far away from the main stuff in the dells. This trip we stayed in a 2 bedroom condo in the main building and the extra space was great. The kids had their own room and... More

Was not a big fan 1) Resort is not located near any other attractions\restaurants. Check Mapquest or Google Map, 2) Its not inclusive to guest of the resort, rather its wide open. Seems to be allot of deals for local camp sites and motels in the area. 3) Strong mildew smell from the shower. 4) No quiet hours. Kids were... More

First: when we were checking in the hotel staff couldn't answer any questions we had about anything, so we went to the room. Going to the room, there was bags of garage though the hotel hallways, I understand housekeeping is cleaning but there was no housekeeping ever seen! The room was the only good part about the trip, but could... More

This place is way overpriced for being a "spruced up" Super 8 hotel. This is not a resort. We asked to switch rooms due to the beds being a joke (the floor was more comfortable) but could not because of a "beauty pageant". The bathroom had hair on the floor and the shower was disgusting that. Don't waste your time... More

Stayed here Saturday, August 16th. The room: Clean, but a little out dated. Looked like mold around the windowsill. We were way in the back so it was a journey to get to anything. Waterparks: Okay, my kids were bored after about 2 hours. Hallways: dark, lacking appeal Customer service: The coffee shop people were great and friendly. Bartender at... More

This was our second vacation at Chula Vista and we were disappointed again. The villas were just being built the last time we stayed so we were excited to find that we were in one of the "junior suites" in the villas. It was a glorified hotel room with a pullout sofa. Rooms at this property are very used and... More

My family (husband and three kids) stayed here from a Wednesday thru Saturday morning. This was our first time at Chula Vista. We stayed in a golf villa that had a kitchenette. The soap by the sink for the bathroom and shower are in a dispenser on the wall and not in bottle like at other hotels. Wasn't sure which... More
