“Refreshing family time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Our family spent two nights for a weekend getaway, and we were very happy that we chose the Grand Lodge Waterpark Resort. Our boys are in the tween ages, and they had more fun than they've had in quite awhile at the waterpark and in the arcade. The wilderness-themed decor throughout the hotel gave an added sense of adventure as we walked between activities. The part of the hotel that made the strongest impression on me was the wonderful staff. Every employee we met, whether at the desk, in the hall, in the waterpark, or during housekeeping, was friendly, eager to say hello, and willing to help. If I were to look for an area for improvement, it would be the continental breakfast. It was free during the week, but during the weekend, it was replaced by a breakfast buffet that required an admission price. They still had free coffee by the buffet entrance, though. By the way, the Cedar Creek Cinema across the street had some special deals that added fun to our stay. We saw a 10 a.m. Saturday 3D movie for $3 per person. Overall, we were impressed with the staff, enjoyed the rooms, and made good use of the waterpark. We received a reasonably low rate by calling the hotel directly, which made the stay even sweeter. We hope to visit again!

We were pleased to learn that we received a complimentary upgrade when we checked in. The lobby is massive, cozy and tastefully decorated. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The king bed and fireplace made for a wonderful stay. The only disappointment was to find out that the lounge/restaurant was closed on Sunday nights. The complimentary breakfast was very adequate, including plenty of hot food, great coffee and lots of seating room.

We had a great stay on a Saturday night in September at Grand Lodge! We had two families- total of 3 adults & 3 children (ages 8, 11 & 12)- stay in a two room suite with a king bed, queen sofa sleeper, and then double bunk bed in a separate room with a tv (the kids' room). The room also had a mini-fridge & microwave. The room was comfortable with enough room & allowed us to hang out, play board games, and have adults in one room & kids in the other. We also enjoyed the water park at the location. The water slides were fun & there was enough there to entertain us for the day. For dinner, we left the site & ate a restaurant that was within walking distance. At night, we spent some time at the arcade. We were impressed by all of the facilities as they were clean & decorated in a Northwoods theme. The staff were all very helpful. We thought the price was right too. I would recommend Grand Lodge for families, especially those with younger children. We had fun & enjoyed our experience!

I was thinking of taking my son to the Wisconsin Dells and my co-worker mentioned that this place was only a 4 hour drive instead of a 7 hour one to the Dells. I checked the website and happened to notice that there was a Labor Day special, 1 night for $99. Booked it right away, as it's hard to get ANY hotel for that price, especially one like this!

We got there before 11am, and I just wanted to double check if we were at the right hotel. We were, and they even let us check in right away (instead of waiting till 4) which was really awesome! My son and his friend immediately checked out the arcade and they only came out because they were out of money! They weren't sad for long, since the smell of chlorine was calling there name!! They spent a good 5 hours the first day and 4 the next (since we were able to use the water park till 2 even though we checked out at 11) and were nicely wrinkled and tired from all the toilet bowl/slide action.

The staff is incredible! I can't say enough of how accommodating they were, especially with directions to the nearest KFC (I know, it doesn't take too much to please us) since we don't have one of these near us.

Bottom line.....we will DEFINITELY be visiting here again!!!

We, as a family of 5 booked in to stay over the Easter weekend. When we arrived we were immediately given an upgrade to a better room at no extra charge, staff are so good, professional, helpful and cheery! My daughter and I ended up staying an extra 2 unexpected days due to car trouble and what was quite a stressful situation was made so much less stressful by the exceptional care of the staff. I would very much recommend the Grand Lodge Lodge - they are terrific!

We just returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. I have to say it was the cleanest hotel we have ever stayed in! Walked around the hotel with just white socks and they were clean when I took them of that night. Staff went out of their way to be friendly!

I've coordniated dozens of business meetings and have found the staff at the Grand Lodge to be unsurpassed - they leave no stone unturned and make themselves easily accessible during the event where other locations can't always claim that....they are easy to work with, find a way to help you and are flexible. We held a 2 day meeting there last week with approximately 72 attendees and they once again impressed us with their service.

Seriously consider making this a location for your next business - where Missy, Kevin, Donna, a 2nd Missy and others will be there to help with all your needs.
