“Never staying here again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We stayed at Mt. Olympus three years ago, and our accommodations, although pricey, were good. We did have problems with noise late into the night, but the room was located by the parks and it was clean. Unfortunately, this was not our experience this time.
We thought we had booked a room in the same location as before. Proximity to the water and amusement park was important since our 5 year old son had extensive surgery on his foot and leg a few months ago and is still wearing a brace which makes walking long distances almost impossible. However we found out that we were about a mile from the main property, and the parking for the amusement and water parks was in a lot far away and uphill. As it turned out, we didn't go to the amusement park because the long walk caused his leg to hurt so badly he was unable to walk by the time we reached the car and drove back to our room.
Our room: the top bunk had a Subway wrapper left between the sides of the mattress and the frame. How housekeeping missed it I'll never know since we spotted it right off. We went to bed about 10 o'clock, exhausted, only to be awakened at 10:30 by housekeeping. They had gotten the wrong room number for a towel delivery. I had fallen asleep wearing ear plugs in anticipation of noise, and sure enough, after midnight the noise started. I'm not sure what other hotel guests were doing, but the sounds resembled a cattle roundup. Bumping into corridor walls and low background noise all night long. I could hear it clearly even with my ear plugs. I finally fell asleep only to be awakened once again by a knock on the door. It was 6:30 am, and a hotel guest had mistaken our room for his. I understand it wasn't the hotel's fault, but the end result was the same. No sleep.
The advertised free wifi is a joke! The connection was so poor, I finally turned my electronics off so it would stop trying to connect!
We had intended to stay until after lunch the next day since we had paid $354 for the room and hoped to take advantage of both the water park and the amusement park. However none of us wanted to drive the mile back to the main property, make the walk from the parking lot to the main building, make the trek from the building to the amusement rides. We drove into downtown and spent our money at a local arcade.
We will visit the Dells again, but we will never, ever return to Mt. Olympus.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms.

We stayed in a bunk bed/2 queens room. The room was not very clean, the walls are paper thin, and the shower curtain was about the half size of the rod. The bathroom had mold on the ceiling and around the tub. The curtain kept sliding because the rod was tipped up and the curtain wasnt long enough, so the floor was soaked each time we showered. The beds are very uncomfortable and squeak loudly when you get up. For approx two hours we listened to the people above us walking back and forth in their room, very frustrating when you are trying to get kids to sleep. Waterpark was nice, but not alot for little kids to do. Also the outside pools water was freezing so we used the indoor pools. Which was very cramped and overly chlorinated so your eyes burn. We go to the Dells every summer, I think we'll try another hotel next time.

Room Tip: in Hotel Rome is the best, choose highest floor because you will hear everything above you

We went here with our 3 kids. I was worried about the resort and water park from the reviews. Our hotel room was a mile plus from the water park but we knew it wouldn't be on site when we booked the room. Hotel room was clean. The indoor theme park is really not worth your time unless you have small kids. Outdoor waterpark was great for all ages. Indoor waterpark is nice but crazy busy if the weather isn't great outside. Overall we had a great time!

#1 Everything you see on the website is a hoax.
#2 We purchased in advance, to take advantage of a special, that we did not receive & they did not honor it.
#3 The campsites, tar or gravel are 6 ft apart & your fire ring/picnic table are located right behind your camper.. You cannot move them.
#4 The check-in times are not what the website says they are.
#5 The lobby-vending area-ice machine is really creepy at night, not well lit & filthy.
#6 Customer Service is not helpful, not accommodating & doesn't care about your satisfaction as a paying customer.
STAY SOMEWHERE ELSE! My family & I will not be coming back here!! I encourage you to write your poor reviews, to shut this place down. Cause it needs to be.

Our hotel room was a beat up gross motel with drunk people passed out in the lawn and on the stairs that me and our two kids had to step over to get into our rooms!! The rooms, carpet, sheets,tv, bathroom are all old and outdated. The sheets had stains on them that were still there the second day so it showed the cleaning people didn't change the sheets. The water park however was very fun with lots of activities and things to do. We will come back to the water park but stay at a different hotel for sure!!

I stayed at the Mt Olympus village and really enjoyed my stay. The village is other motels that Mt Olympus bought out, but the inside and rooms are really great inside. It is still close to the theme park and water park and you can park there for free. Mt Olympus has a great deal with the theme park and water park tickets included in the room price. It can be crowded during the day, but they do have a few hours for hotel room guests only which is nice. Although it may look crowded the lines for the slides and coasters go fast.

Room Tip: When reserving a room in the village, ask them for a specific building number if you have a preferen...

The hotel accommodations were horrific! Mt Olympus bought up all the small hotels in the area. Then went in, shut down the lovely pools and lobbies. What is left is a creepy, abandoned hotel! My kids were actually nervous about all the blacked out windows. There is no security in the hotel. The park was a full mile from our hotel. The rooms were awful. Double beds when we payed for queen, the bedding was paper thin, mismatched scrubby old furniture, yucky soap and shampoo. The park itself is fun but understaffed and not being kept up.
