This place is definitely not worth the money. The room was a nice size (we had one King bed, and a small separate living area). The bed was extremely creaky, so hopefully the walls weren't too thin. I couldn't tell you if the walls are thin or not because there were maybe only 5 other rooms booked there. We arrived... More

Note that after checking in we were told that we could pick up our parking pass from the “Concierge” desk which was a starting point for high pressure “time share” sales. They offered $100 if we would be willing to spend an hour going through a tour of their proposed plans for remodeling, etc. We politely declined but they were... More

I would not recommend staying here at all! My purse along with another ladies purse and gentleman's wallet were stolen out of the outdoor pool area. No cameras at all. Thought this was a family friendly place to stay. Indoor water park was never open. Rooms were very outdated and not very clean. Staff was not attentive. Did not care... More

Where do I start? First of all when I booked, I made sure it was a room with a balcony. I get there and I get one of maybe 8 rooms that don't have a balcony. In talking to the front desk they were more than happy to switch my room even tho it was an inconvenience. They told me... More

My husband and I wanted to take the kids to a little vacation before they started school. The pools were fine and not a lot of people. But the staff was not friendly at all. When I would call the front desk, they would keep me on hold (by just putting the phone down) and not really let me finish... More

The experience from the beginning was a disappointment. They said are room would be available by 4 p.m. but that was not the case. We waited til 4:30 to finally get our room. Their excuse was they had to have the staff clean up the room before we enter. Actually it wasn't even the room we reserved in advance. We... More

We attempted to stay at this hotel as part of a "free" package deal. It wasn't even good enough to stay there for free. We checked in and went to the room. It was outdated, yes, but to me that isn't a big deal. I just want a room that's clean. The bathroom had mold in the grout along the... More

We stayed here as part of another "deal". It was outdated, no in room wifi, only a few TV channels, dirty bathroom,moldy smelling entryways, peeling paint, the weed beds add a homey touch though! Book elsewhere and enjoy the Dells!

After reading reviews on here as well as on other websites, I was slightly terrified to stay here. After walking into the lobby, it really does look like a resort. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I've heard horror stories about the rooms here, but ours was pretty good. Outdated, but clean. I heard they're going under renovation (not... More
