“Motel-like accomodations”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

We stayed at the Bluegreen Odssey Dells for 4night/5days and were happy to leave. The units are very small and outdated. The colors are dark and the units are not inviting and relaxing as you would wxpect when you are on vacation. The kitchen area is extremely small and only has two burners and a convection oven/microwave, but everything in the kitchen worked well. We found our unit very dusty and the floors were dirty. The beds and the furniture were very uncomfortable. There were bugs in the unit and the odor was stale and musty (we cleaned it and had it smelling good during our stay). Having a pass to the theme water park was good and it gave us a chance to do some things outside of the unit. I was not impressed with the up-keep of the unit. I seems like a motel room as opposed to a resort. If elegance is what you want on a vacation, stay away from this place.

Just returned from Odyssey Dells, Wis Dells. after spending 4 nights/5 days. We reserved 2 2bdrms/1 bath units. My hubby and I and a daughter had one unit and my other three kids stayed in the other. It was heaven to them since they never get their own private bedrooms!!! Each had a kitchen and a nice big jacuzzi tub in each master bedroom. Layout was nice, but even though I understood why the second bedroom didn't have walls all the way to the ceiling(air flow), I didn't like it. If my daugther was watching tv in her room and I was watching in the living area, it was like a competition because neither of us could hear over each other's tv. Kind of annoying. The kitchen could use a few more things if you plan to make meals. We didn't have any bowl larger than a cereal bowl. Makes it kind of hard when mixing up pancake batter or anything else like that.
We spent a lot of time at Mt Olympus which is nice. We've been to the theme park before, but never had stayed at the resort until this trip. It was great to not have to use the main entrance to the theme park. Resort patrons enter through the indoor waterpark, so by the time the others enter the main gate, we were already sitting at tables and got our chairs. Nice perk!
I don't know the traffic reports, but I'm guessing there are a lot of fender benders or worse on that main drag by the resort. The traffic is awful.... crowded and fast. To make it across while walking or by vehicle is very scary.
We enjoyed our stay and have no major complaints. Our room was very pleasant and plenty of room. All 6 of us in one would have been cramped, but having 2 was perfect for us. I recommend the fourth floor because that way you don't have to hear the noise from the rooms above you and you get a great view of the park. (even numbered rooms view the waterpark which can be noisy, odd number rooms just see a rock cliff wall but is quiet)
Let me know if you have questions!

Just got back from a week's stay at Odyssey Dells. Stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bath "condo", even though it feels like a hotel. it has a small kitchen area with a convection oven and 2 burners. It allowed us to cook dinner a few nights, which helped saved on the food bill. Because the dining room and the family room are the same, we had to move the dining table to the middle of the room to allow all 7 of us to fit around it (including using the couch for some seating).

Beds were comfortable, the sleeper sofa worked well for the kids. Having the room right next to the water park was nice, if that is your thing. If we were to stay at BlueGreen again in the Dells, we would probably stay at Christmas Mountain. But in all it was an enjoyable stay. It would have been nice if they had a normal swimming pool (for those times you don't need a 50 ft. waterslide). But I understand why they don't.

This was a nice stay for a couple of days. No noise this time( even if the hotel was full of kids). Everyone enjoyed the water-park & MT. OLMPUS (that also has some new rides) . Only draw-back was the room ,( which was small & the furniture ) . Plenty of places to eat & things to do .

Room Tip: Ask for 2-bedroom unit on the front-side of building.

The furniture was a little shabby, wood chairs were chipped, leather sofa was worn, beds were innerspring mattress with too much sag. The "master" bedroom seemed to have a double, not queen, bed. 3 tv's made it nice to watch tv anywhere. The shower curtain had spots of black mildew and the room smelled moldy on warmer days. When we stayed (before Memorial Day) only the indoor parks were open. Most of the activities were either child-oriented, or required a more active adult than us (rock climbing wall is not for us). Everything in the indoor waterpark seemed too piddly. I would be happy with just a lap pool. All this would have been a better deal if both indoor and outdoor parks were open, but all in all I would have preferred to stay at a nice, cleaner facility with no theme park but a lower cost. The staff were very friendly and helpful, though.

It is associated with Mt Olympus (i.e. Hotel Rome). It is one of the larger indoor water/amusement parks. They have a good selection of outdoor and indoor water and amusement parks considering that it is only warm in Wisconsin in the spring and summer. The timeshare is cleaner than the actual Hotel Rome facilities probably due to the increased traffic on the hotel side. I found the facilities good, but the only thing that bothered me was that they need to vacuum the carpeting more inside both facilities. The indoor water park only has 2 slides, a small pool, a lazy river, play area for little ones, small pool, and hot tub, I would definitely come up over the summer when the whole facility was open to utilize all the stuff available. The indoor amusement park is for a younger crowd. The outdoor amusement park is for older kids. All the staff were quite nice, and i didn't fee pressured by any timeshare reps, even though they did offer incentives, and tours of another facility. All in all...it was a fun week.

My family stayed at Odyssey Dells through Bluegreen Resorts for Spring Break in March 2012 for 1 week. We stayed in a 2bdm, 1 bathroom unit. The unit was clean and well-apointed. The kitchen was small, but met our needs for our stay. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner most days back in our room. The kitchen has a convection microwave instead of an oven, but it does have a dishwasher which is always a plus. The fridge/freezer were full size. Each bedroom has a plasma TV which was great when my kiddo wanted to relax in his bedroom. The master bedroom had a large jacuzzi tub in it along with a sink. The shower in the bathroom was a little small considering the size of the bathroom.

The staff was nice and helpful as well.

There is a laundry room over in the Hotel Rome side of the resort.

Indoor Waterpark--can't say enough positive things about our daily visits to the waterpark! My son (age 5) played in the kids pools area and never got bored. There are 5 slides off the pirate ship that were perfect for his age and ability level. There were 2 other smaller slides for smaller kiddos as well as water features. We also enjoyed the indoor pool and lazy river. My husband tried the bigger waterslides and enjoyed them as well.

We got to the park every morning when it opened and the croud was pretty scarse. Closer to 10:30ish it got busier (we never felt is was crowded or had to wait in line) till 3:30ish. In the late afternoon, the crowd began to thin out. Once again it was never overally busy and we never had to wait in line which was a plus. There are also lockers to rent if need be and the bathrooms are convienent.

Suggestions-wear water shoes, the bottom of the pool can tear your feet up after several days at the waterpark. Also we took our own pool towels since the waterparks towels were little and not as absorbent.

Indoor Themepark: We went to the indoor themepark each day to ride the bumper cars, tea cups, trolley ride and go karts. These rides were perfect for my 5 year old. The longest line we waited in was 10 minutes for the go karts. The soft play area was also fun!

Overall it was a great trip! I would highly suggest going to Odyssey Dells on a family trip during any time of the year.
