“2.5 star really”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

This trip was booked for a girls week stay to enjoy the Dells, no kids included. We knew our hotel would be offsite from the main park (building #19), it was 2+ miles away. Check in was supposed to be 4, we did early check in at 3, our room was not ready until 4:30. The hotel room did not look anything like the pictures online. The queen size bed was more of a full size, even though the hotel assured us it was truly queen. The only plus for our spot was the location of #19 bldg being right by the downtown main street, walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops. This is not a place you would want to stay with kids, there is nothing there for them to do. You would have to walk or drive them somewhere for any entertainment. There is only 1 shuttle to the night club, that does not start until 9 at night. The main water/ride park is extremely overcrowded with Mt Olympus having 30+ off-site buildings plus visitors buying in for the day, you cannot swim, you are waiting too long in lines for the slides/rides. You will spend most of your time walking. I would not take my kids/family here but for a girls/adult week it was OK. TIP: If you like coffee bring a coffee maker, there is only instant packets with no coffee maker and just plastic cups...

We stayed there 4 nights in building 26; at first glance room looks clean, but the bathroom shows a few mildew spots on the shower walls and ceiling..otherwise I guess for the price not too bad!

If you are having difficulty walking, you might want to pay a little more and be closer to the park.

My husband and I have made Mount Olympus our family's annual summer (and winter) vacation getaway resort. I am a mother of two children (7 & 8 year olds), and I must admit that I'm not the easiest person to please when it comes to cleanliness and overall service when we vacation. I have NEVER had an issue with either cleanliness of the rooms we have stayed in (and cleanliness of the entire resort in general) or the customer service we have received at Mount Olympus. In fact we were just there last week, and a little girl had an accident in one of the bathroom stalls (which I noticed when I was washing my hands), I informed the first employee I saw upon exiting the restroom about the situation. I was COMPLETELY IMPRESSED at how quickly they sent someone that IMMEDIATELY cleaned up the mess. It's situations like these that I pay attention to that show us as vacationing guests (and mothers) that cleanliness is also very important to this resort staff (which I'm sure all moms can agree is a BIG plus). This year our family has traveled more than other years, but this hotel and location is one of our favorites YEAR AFTER YEAR! I must say we are EXHAUSTED by the end of EVERY day from ALL of the waterpark pools, slides, rides, and games (but luckily there is a bar & grill right next to the lobby where my husband and I can enjoy a nice glass of wine while watching the kids play in the arcade/game room. I do not write reviews often, but I wanted to share my family's vacationing experience in the Dells, and that year after year we have always enjoyed our stay at Mount Olympus. I would DEFINITELY recommend anyone with or without children to stay at Mount Olympus Resort when planning a trip to Wisconsin Dells!!! :)

If you are looking to pay more for less this is the place for you. I booked a room that I thought was at Mt Olympus, instead they placed me in an old off site motel. They said I could walk the mile from my motel to the resort. They said my reservation noted this. I checked and it was there in 6pt font.

The motel was old, extremely old and nothing superior about it. It felt like I was in Walmart, poor service with a big crowd to make your visit feel not like a vacation but isntead a job.

The resort says it is a $45 entrance fee to the waterpark, however there is a permanent billboard that says "Today only $15!" So basically it is always $15 for anyone who wants to to visit this resort, which makes it packed and hard to move in. Additionally, this resort allows smokers of e-cigarettes so you get to inhale that too while you are at the water park. When you add this to the mile walk from your motel room to the waterpark it was anything but kid friendly. Kids can do an whole lot of whining when they have to walk that far to and from the room.

I dont recommend it. Stay anywhere else and if you want to visit this place spend the $15 instead of staying at the resort, you are just as far away from the resort when you are in one of their hotels as if you stayed at a totally different motel.

The other issue is that all of the employees are from non-English speaking countries. This resort has them pay them to come and work for them. Some speak good English, most do not, so good luck trying to get your food the way you want it, they don't know what you are telling them to get it right.

I do not recommend this place.

When we reached there the resort looked like its name.. Mt. Olympus but as we treaded inside it slowly unraveled into an ok! place but still better than most.
1- Yes! They have parking and hotel access issue at the main Rome hotel building, its a one way in and one way out so if you for some reason wanted to go back you have to get out the main road and then get back in.
2- The entrance was great but when going to your room the elevator access was so small and the elevator itself was tiny (3 adults, 2 toddlers with 1 small stroller) I was absolutely unhappy and claustrophobic. To top it most of the guest were using the same one.
3- Indoor water park- It was raining that day so everyone piled up like sardines in this park. And there were so many code violations- people literally blocking the entrance, at some spots lifeguards were not paying attention or none present. Towels (2) were given with your wrist band (not impressed). Overall the indoor park was average sized if you can compare.
4- Indoor theme park was another separate building, a little walk. Very average insides, except some roman pillars and decor. Some rides one has to pay extra but most are included with the park entrance fee. You go in and you see lots of wasted space, they can easily put in more rides.
5- Rome hotel rooms were nicely different inside, all wooden floors, a nice set of bunk-bed for the kids and the decor was good too. But bathroom was just average. Now these rooms were the best and the central site to access all the parks. Any cheaper rooms you want are all on other lots and then everything is a drive and walk away. Looks like they just kept buying those small motels on the main street next to theirs, then gave them their theme look and included them into their resort/ property.
6.- The outdoor water-parks are in separate islands if you want to call them. The main beach like outdoor setting was the "Poseidon rage" , it also has big waves every fee minutes. nice! Lots of the big water and dry rides you have to pay separately and that wasnt too impressive.
My reviews are my own and come from my personal experience. And I dont easily get impressed, maybe I have varied levels of hotel, motel and resort experience.

Room Tip: Its a good resort for the price. Choose the Rome hotel which is right in the middle of everything bu...

We didn't stay at the resort itself but one of the "sister" resorts where you get the wristband still for the theme park and water park. The park was amazing the lines weren't very long and it was clean. The worst part about it was right where we entered there was a hill and it sucked to walk up and down that sucker multiple times a day. The food was pricey but we ate in our hotel anyways. There was an indoor water park and theme park but we didn't go in there cause it was sooo beautiful out ;) 9/10

My group of 6 spent a few days at Mt. Olympus and I left really upset with Management especially Lauren and FoFo. My son bought goggles from the gift shop and used it for no more than 6 hours before they broke. I went back to the same gift shop 48 hours after my son bought the goggles and the clerk point blank blamed my son for breaking them. I physically saw these goggles fall off my son's face because the cheap plastic clamps snapped off. I was well aware of the no refund policy but I thought for sure since my party of 6 just spent over $1000.00 at Mt. Olympus that management would replace this faulty/defective goggle. No such luck. Lauren told me her supervisor, FoFo (who apparently had other more important things to do than to address a very upset guest), told her that under no circumstance is she allowed to swap out goggles.
Then our room with three queen size beds IS NOT what the website has for it's pictures. We had 6 people in our room and yet only two chairs to sit in and a tiny table to eat at. The carpet had a huge tear in it at one point and it was put back together with staples. In our tiny (again a room of 6 people) bathroom there was no where to put our clothes because there was no toilet set cover. The shower had mold in it. The water pressure was mild at best. In case management is reading this, I stayed in building 27 and that is not Mt. Olympus hotel room; it is Mt. Olympus MOTEL room.

Future guest BEWARE...I have contacted management via phone and have left not one but two messages regarding the goggle incident and the awful hotel...no wait... motel room I stayed in and yet NO ONE has gotten back to me.

Over all if you upgrade your room to look like the pictures on the website you are close to spending what Great Wolf Lodge is and I can personally say its customer service is way better than Mr. Olympus.

Room Tip: Don't get building # 27
