I give Mt Olympus 4 stars because I knew what I was getting. Many of the reviews are unfair because consumers felt they were misled. Just understand that if you are staying at Rome then you will pay more and get to stay onsite so you don't have to drive to and from the park. Its an ok resort and the parking is far more convenient. If you are staying at a "Village " then most likely you will be driving to the park every day and parking in the general lot (it is free for you as a resort/village guest). You will have a long walk into and out of the park and there is a very steep incline walking out every day. This could be a problem for some.

I would not pay peak prices to visit here. It will be very crowded and over priced. They do allow day passes and often offer ridiculously cheap deals to non-resort guests (even free admissions to pack the park full as often as possible to cash in on parking and concessions from day pass guests).

My 4 star review is based on my family visiting the last week of August. We took our kids out of school for 3 days and enjoyed 90 degree weather and light crowds. Our room only costs seven ty dollars per night and included all the coaster, go-carts, and water park. The coasters are large but we only road two of them and were too sore to continue. They are very rough wooden coasters. The outside waterpark and go-carts are great. The inside water park and inside "amusement park" are about 15 minutes of fun for any kids over 10. They can swim but obviously if the weather is bad and the outside park is closed, it's going to be crowded.

We stayed a couple nights at Wilderness and really enjoyed it as well. If you can get a great price for Mt Olympus when the outside park is open, I would give it a try. The Poisidon Rage wave pool throws 9 foot waves and is great fun for all. If it's off season and you have to stay indoors, hit Wilderness as they have 3 decent indoor parks and no day passes!

As for our room, it was only ok. They did leave crums on the floor from previous guests which is silly since its fake hardwood. Just sweep it up? My wife was nervous as we pulled up as there is no office staff on-site and it feels unsafe. Our "village" was kind of secluded and since its an old motel you just don't feel secure. Once you are locked into your unit its ok. The bunk bed was nice and it felt like a nicer Red Roof inn or lesser Best Western. Obviously not what you would want to see if you pay top dollar but for us the room was basically free since it included the park admissions.

Also, based on other reviews we packed a cooler for lunch but with the long walk we conceded and ate in the park. The prices weren't any worse than a normal amusement park. Nothing compared to Disney or Ballpark prices.

Room Tip: Call ahead and ask how you can stay nearest to the park. One village is almost within walking distan...

signed up for one of those discounted time share deals and they put us here. Looks good from the outside but the inside could use a good cleaning and the inside waterpark wasn't anything special. The room was done pretty cheaply the beds didn't even have boxsprings. the sheets felt damp, dark bathroom with bugs in the light fixture, paper thin walls, dirty carpet in the halls.

Room Tip: Go to Black Hawk motel, we stayed there first and with the free entry with Chula vista's water p...

Room was clean but small, general hotel, a little disrepair here and there. they are cheap, no extra shampoo or soap, and no towels at the water park, disappointing..... probably wont go back again.First room they gave us was dirty and not the view I was promised, they said it was a view of the water park and actually it was a view of the air conditioner.

Room Tip: stay at hotel rome if you visit this property, otherwise you might end up in a real dump.

We were under the impression that everything was in 1 location. Well, the bldg of our hotel was 2 miles down the road! I wasn't planning on walking that distance or having to pile the whole family in the car every time we wanted to go do something! Not to mention, our hotel was dirty, the floors had stuff spilled on them (very sticky), the countertops hadn't been cleaned, the phone didn't work, the TV was old, no headboards on the beds, blanket on bed so thin, we could see through it. Basically, the owner of this "resort" bought out all the rinky dinky motels in the Dells, "remodeled them' and collectively called them Olympic Village. In reality, the same rinky dinky motels are just as sleazy and dirty as they were before. No wonder the prices here are cheap... because you get what you pay for! Needless to say, we made other arrangements and didn't spend a night or a dime here!

Pros: Free admission to Mt. Olympus on all days of stay, including day of checkout, clean rooms, friendly staff, arcade in lobby, gift shop in lobby, room had a microwave and fridge

Cons: long line at check in, although it did move quickly, thin walls, the restaurants on property are overpriced, not enough parking, very thin walls - could hear conversations in the next room, small flat screen t.v.

Overall: Nice hotel to stay at and a good value for your money, but ask for a top floor away from other guests or go during off season
