Stayed at the hotel for a quick weekend get away with my 2 year old and 6 year old. Hotel is old and rooms are bordering on being rundown, but they were clean and comfy. Typical noise issues with older hotels - could hear the shower and toilet in the next rooms, but were not in rooms enough to mind.... More

I don't know what hotel the other people stayed at, but there is no way it could have been the same place we stayed at. Room was dirty, M&M's on the floor by the bed, gum wrappers left in the trash, hair on the toilet. JUST GROSS! Room also had an strange odor. Indoor pool, wet Kleenex all over the... More

I have stayed at other "Fancier" Hotels in the dells, and did not expect a whole lot here since the price was pretty good. But I was surprised at how nice this hotel is! The rooms are clean, the outdoor waterpark is very nice, and the indoor waterpark with the lazy river & dark tunnel with the tiki guys was... More

Visited in late October 2006 & stayed in the Maui Suite (room 298). Traveled with our 2 year daughter, 4 year son and my mom (5 in our room) and it was very comfortable. This room has 2 large beds and a couch that pulls out. The pullout is only comfortable for a child / children... Room was very clean... More

We stayed over Labor Day weekend and were happy overall. The hotel interior and furniture is a bit dated as mentioned in other reviews but the room was kept clean and the service was good. The clerk who checked us in at 10pm was not very welcoming, reciting the "script" without making eye contact which almost started things off badly... More

We just returned from our third visit in a little over a year to the Polynesian at the Dells. This hotel is a nice compromise between the Dells motels and the super waterpark resorts. For a few dollars more, we were able to book a "Luxury Suite" which is not luxurious, but it does have a seperate bedroom and living... More

We just returned from a stay at The Polynesian and I'm very happy to say my wife & I and our two daughters had a blast! Given the ages of our daughters - 5 & 8 - The Polynesian was probably a perfect choice. After reading many of these reviews before our trip and now after, I've decided what this... More

We picked this hotel expecting a certain level of service and enjoyment. We come to the Dells every July as a sort of Family reunion. We usually stay at a family owned condo, but as the family has grown, we now have need of a hotel every year. The staff was indeed very friendly and helpful on a very busy... More

My family just got back from a 3 day stay at the Polynesian. We have 2 boys ages 6 and 9 and we couldn't get them to leave the waterparks! They had the best time ever, and so did we! We had a 3rd floor room with a poolview balcony. Our room was just a standard 2 queen room but... More
