The motel is in a great location walking distance to downtown. The motel is great you get to park right in front of your room. We were in the Dells for my sons basketball teams tourney and all the rooms in our party were next to each other. The room we stayed in was just renovated. Our room had a... More

This is by far the nicest motel in the Dells. My sister and I wanted to get away overnight. The first thing we noticed was that it smelled clean. That was a huge plus. The bathroom was nice and clean, no hair or dirt in the bathroom. We didn't use it, but for family's there is a big plus, free... More

Room #70 was clean and spacious. I loved that there were 2 vanities one in the bathroom and one outside the bathroom. The fridge, microwave and bar sink were also nice to have. The beds were comfy and the room was great for the 5 of us. I would definitely stay again. I wish they were open all year, we... More

I would highly recommend this motel! A little on the retro side, the rooms are clean and very affordable, with all the basic amenities you will need fridge, microwave, ect. Their indoor pool was great for the kids, they stay open until 11:30p.m. The time of the year we went, the Noah's Ark park had not opened yet, so I... More

Kids loved it - indoor and outdoor pools, playgrounds and game room. I had reservations weeks in advance and when I returned home, I found out two of my friends who did not have reservations were given the jacuzzi suite on the same day my family and I arrived.

We booked a room for 3 nights with our entire family (8 of us total). I was very excited based on the positive reviews. I very disappointed when we got there. This place is so over rated. Don't stay here unless you are willing to sit in a jam packed pool with kids and adults alike. The thought of getting... More

Thanks for the review...I, my staff and the rest of the Trip Advisor community would have liked a bit more information.

I was genuinely surprised at how great this little hotel/motel/cottage rental is. The pool areas are great. The rooms are excellent. The price is good. It is dated, in a retro feel way, but very clean. Not to mention the passes that come with the wrist bands! It was a great stay, I will stay here every time from now... More
