After reading some of the reviews here I was reluctant to spend time/money here but this is the place my brother picked for a family reunion so what can you do?
Not a big fan of "tenting" so rented a motel unit. The unit was newer, all the amenities of a regular hotel room. Towels, soaps, refridge, maid service... The A/C kept up easily with the 90+ degree weather. Everything very claen, even grill cleaned out. These were especially nice for my "senior" parents who don't "tent" or want the hassle of a trailer. Found an ant here or there but hey, I was camping?? Even better, these are standalone units so you don't hear any neighbors, either side, above or below.
Staff? I read a lot about rude staff. This was where I was confused. Did not encouter one staff member who was less than friendly. Always very helpful, offering to give you a ride up the hill on a golf cart, answering any question you might have. The younger kids at the rental dock worked endlessly cleaning rental boats.
When I did see the staff "put their foot down" it was usually subtly in sign form requsting you not use towels outside the motel unit or for rags. parking in spots that block or things that business owners should be concerned about to keep their business attractive, convenient and profitable. I assume the people who left bad comments here are the ones who like to "buck the system" and make everybody ELSES stay less than enjoyable.
Beach nice, boat slip I got was good. Great access to Dells (city or river)
Bottom line: I LOVED the motel units, entire stay enjoyable. Couldn't find a thing to complain about (OK maybe the bugs but Holiday Shores really can't fix that). This was much better than the reunion 2 years ago where we stayed at the "other" large campground and we will most likely be back.
