“Your missing out if you don't go!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2011

This is a great hotel. I would recommend it to anybody. We got a Groupon for a discount price. So we took eight people to the hotel for an overnight. (6 adults, 2 children.) There are things to do from age 1 to 100. Check-in was smooth and pain less. Melissa was great on check in and Marry was great on check out. (Marry did remember us from the day before. Even before we said anything! (Very impressed with that.) The water park has a kiddy pool on one side. A playground feel, but with water. 5 water slides. Sizes that fit the appropriate age. 2 of the slides go outside and at night this is AWESOME! Total darkness. The slide they call “Sasquatch” everybody else calls “The Toilet Bowl” (No disrespect!) The lazy river is nice. The only problem is people just leave the river and not take their tube with them. Lots of clutter on the river. If I have to say anything bad about the water park is the lifeguards. Half of the lifeguards are more worried about how they look and talking to friends than watching the people in the water. (Lazy River.)
Now about the rooms. Large rooms for a hotel room. Great beds. I like the idea of using your room key to run the Heat/AC. Saves energy when not in your room. Good thinking. When it was sleepy time, you could not hear anything outside your room. At 8:pm they have story time with “Bernie the Bear” WITH milk and cookies. Stephen, who read the book, put up with a lot. When the cookies and milk where brought out, the rush was on. And they ran out of cookies. At 9:pm they have movie night for the older kids. The breakfast buffet was ok. Nothing outstanding, but filling. Stephen, who was also our server for breakfast, found some extra cookies for our son. Little extra things like that are great. This shows that they will “go a little further” for the guest. I have stayed at a couple of Waterpark/Hotel in Wisconsin, and this ranks on the top. We had an hour and half ride home and the kids sleep all the way. (Also some of the adults.) This is a great place and would drive that again to go here. I will skip the Tundra lodge that is only 20min from our home.
Keep up the good work!!

Room Tip: Book early.

We had our daughter's 3rd birthday celebration at Grand Lodge and everything went so well. Our family had a wonderful time splashing in the waterpark and then we had the party in one of their suites that was comfortable to sit 20 plus people for a party. The waterpark was very clean, the room was clean, and all employees we interacted with were very friendly. I will defintely go back again!

We had a wonderful time. When we made the reservations Dave,Amber,Kendra were all very accommodating as some of our family were arriving Fri nite and some not till Sat. We made reservations asking for 4 rooms,close together,same floor as water-park--I called numerous times checking on accommodations and spoke with Dave,Kendra,Amber and each time was taken care of with very friendly ,knowledgeable staff that met my needs.Check-ins Fri. nite went well as the rooms were being charged to my card and I wasn't coming till Sat. morn,but notes had been made which no doubt made it easier for the staff. When we arrived Sat morn around noon we were greeted with very friendly,helpful staff--Melissa,Mary,another can't remember her name --they got us armbands for the park and when to check back when our rooms were ready.We got 4 rooms together on the same floor as water-park which was great! Rooms are cleaned and then inspected --they were nice,very clean and large-(was nice for our family to all gather in one room for a birthday)-- the bathrooms are small but why do you need a large one? I liked the larger room area! The water park is awesome -lotzas fun and areas that accommodated the adults and our children ranging from 3yrs. to 7yrs. Plenty of slides for all ages,lazy river was great --plenty of tubes,fast enough so everyone kept moving,lifeguards were exceptional- letting kids have fun but keeping them safe and in control. One grandchild hit head going down slide and was immediately sent to first aid for ice. We stayed a Fri./Sat nite and it was quiet around our rooms after 10p.m. Checkout is 11:00am but can stay in water-park longer--didn't quite get out by 11 but no problems -even let me go back to get a forgotten item. We will definitely go back next year!

We have never been to Grand Lodge before and we soon discovered that it is the only place we will ever stay at when in Wausau. The staff and accomendations were great! The waterpark and dinner were such a great convience. I highly recommend going if given the chance! You won't be sorry, trust me!

Room Tip: Go during the week, less crowded!

Bought the stay from Groupon and it was a wonderful get away. We have 2 teens and my sister and her 3 children (9,7,3) also came and we all had a great time. The rooms were amazing in the lodge and the waterpark was just big enough. The food in the restaurant was horrible. Thank goodness we had a coupon. We would go back again... just wouldn't eat there.
