“Wonderful Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2011

We just returned from an overnight stay at KeyLime Cove. My husband and I took our almost-two-year-old for a night because we found a Groupon, and we'll definitely be back. The hotel is festive and cheerful. Our room was absolutely spotless, with plenty of room for all of us and my son's pack-and-play. Every staff member we encountered was courteous and helpful, from the lifeguards at the water park to the server at the coffee stand. The water park was wonderful; there were slides and a long lazy river for the little guy, and my husband and I enjoyed the tube slides a lot. There were ample tables and inner tubes at the park. The rates are very reasonable. We would choose KeyLime Cove over the Dells--it's a better bargain and much closer to home.

we all have fun in the wave pool especially the kids. they don't want to get out of it. we just get out of the pool when we have to eat and use the washroom. the service is good. the food is affordable. the pool is clean but the only problem in there is some of the area is slippery. you just need to be carefull, don't run and walk carefully. the room is clean. the location is good, near in shopping mall, great america and alot of good restaurants. two thumbs up.

despite some of the negative reviews we had an absolute blast at Key Lime Cove. the entire staff was WONDERFUL, very helpful, professional, and knowledgeable. everyone was so polite. we did the birthday package for one of my kids and it was PERFECT. the cake was delicious and so big. the pizza was EXCELLENT and delicious. they gave us coupons upon check in that were a great value and we were happy to use. the waterpark was so much fun. it was clean, and the employees were great at keeping an eye out on everything. we ordered a burger and grilled cheese sandwich at the pizza place and Tara made such delicious food for us. Devin who checked us in was a great help and James who delivered our luggage to our room was very professional. there's also an area where they have a bunch of fun activities for the kids and Jumpin Jenny was there at the time we went. she was alot of fun. we have absolutely nothing negative to say at all about this place. it is affordable and a great value. the beds were so comfortable, the AC unit was quiet and in great working order. we also had a fridge in our room and they have a line hanging up above the shower area for you to hang your swim suites to dry after going to the water park, so thoughtful. they have a free shuttle that takes you to and from Six Flags, and Gurnee Mills Mall. this is a neat resort where you use a wrist band as your room key and to shop if you'd like, that way you don't ever have to carry cash or cards or anything of the sort. you can put as much money towards that as you want ( up to $150.00 per day) directly from your debit or credit card account, or you can pay cash or use your cards as you go. its up to you. we also made some cool body scrub at the kids spa, it was fun and so cool and affordable. they have a lot of services available for the kids at the spa. I can't say it enough, it was so much fun and so relaxing and such a cool place to stay. we highly recommend it, there's lots of fun to be had by all at this place.

I was initially not excited about going to this hotel because we had stayed at a similar type of waterpark hotel in Rockford and were VERY unhappy. We had tickets to Great America and I found a Groupon for KEYLIME COVE so I figured why not try it out for this price. I have to say it was WONDERFUL!! Everything was in perfect working order, clean and the staff was SO friendly. The waterpark was SO well maintained and there were plenty of lifeguards on staff keeping an eye on things. In addition to the waterpark there were SO many things to do as well!! Plus the free shuttle to Great America was an excellent bonus!! That saved us $20!! The rooms were very comfortable and even had a ceiling fan in the room! What a great feature! The decor was very tropical (as to be expected) and clean clean clean! We did get the room for a good deal and our budget doesn't really allow staying at places like this often, BUT we will be saving up to go again as soon as we can. It IS worth the money!!

Room Tip: No tip needed! I'm sure they are all great!!!

My family had a wonderful experience at KeyLime Cove. All the workers were friendly and outgoing. It was very clean and we felt very safe both in our room and at the water park. We would definitely go back!!

It was like staying in a 5 star Hotel. The staff was over the top. They totally went out of their way to please us. From the night manager Dan to Morgan in the Spa. Just so kind and sweet. My room was very clean housekeeping was tip top. We had 3 rooms of family with us and ate in every one of the restaurants. We never had a bad meal. It was very tasty. We will go back at least 1 more time in 2011.

Room Tip: Get the Cabanaclub pass it's worth it

We have stayed numerous times at Key Lime Cove and we have always been pleased with our stay. It is a great family place to just relax and have fun. I have 3 girls and they can't ever get enough of the waterpark. Me and my wife also enjoy getting away and spending a couple of days away from home. It is only a short 30 minute ride in the car. I would highly recommend to anyone with or without kids for a fun-filled getaway!!!
