“Nice place to stay if you have younger kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

The Grand Marquis hotel in Wisconsin Dells is a nice clean place to bring your kids for a quick and affordable vacation, or "staycation". The rooms are clean and the water features are fun. There is a place for all ages to play at this hotel. One area is for real young kids (2-4 years old). It has some slides and a play area. There is also a whirlpool that adults can soak in while watching their young 'uns. There is another water area that has a pool for swimming with a few slides as well. There is an outdoor water area but since we were there in January we figured we shouldn't use it . . .

Overall, it is a nice place to take your kids for a few days.

I stayed here when visiting the Dells with my niece and her family. They have a 2 year old and wanted a place with a kiddie water park. This is the place for all of that. However, for me...this place wasn't so great. There was no iron in the room, so I was really wrinkled all week. Also, there was no breakfast or restaurant on the premises so I had to go down the street every morning to get a decent cup of coffee. The hotel was really loud with kids running up and down the halls. This was a cheap, cost cutting hotel. So, I guess for families on a budget it is OK. And, by the way, the wifi was really slow and didn't work half the time. All of those of you with ATT...not much signal in the Dells.

A great hotel. It is right out of 1995 in decor but super super clean! The staff is very friendly and helpful. When we stayed here we got mt olympus tickets half off and Noah's ark tickets at 40 percent off. Awesome bar and eatery across the street to get your drink on. Nice pools....kids 8 and under will love it.

We stayed here with our twin 3 year olds this past week. The Indoor water park is perfect for kiddies under 10 or older if they are unfamiliar with water activities and or in btwn off-site water park fun. The hotel is older, but they keep it very clean as well as the pools, whirlpools and water park. I did not find that it smelled in the halls or our room as some of the other reviews. They have a nice picnic area where you can grill. There is a laundry center with one washer and dryer; It's first come, first serve. The rooms are on the small side. The beds in our room were terrible; they are old, had a few stains and somewhat uncomfortable. The pillows are flimsy and the blankets need replacing, the sheets were up to par. The WiFi totally sucked. Don't expect to get on even though they say it's fine. We tried and tried, nothing. The ladies at front desk were very nice. They are located near anything you want to do and or eat at. My girls loved it. We would definitely consider staying here again.

The perfect hotel to stay at if you have children under the age of 6. The waterpark inside was just the right size for our 4 year old. The room, pool areas, and the waterpark were the cleanest we have ever stayed at in the Dells. Don't be fooled by the affordable pricing - you get more for your dollar here. Only thing that would make this hotel even better would be if they offered a continental breakfast at the least. But there are plenty of food options within walking distance.

The water park and pools are in great shape and clean. Our kids (ages 6 and 8) had a blast rotating between the two pools and water park. The outdoor pool was only 4'6" at its deepest allowing our six year old to swim most of it without it being over his head. As some of the other posts have stated, the rooms were dated (circa 1990's), but that's to be expected in an older hotel. The biggest problem we encountered were the beds in our room. The bed sheets were clean, but the comforter and army surplus pink blanket have to go. The mattresses were less than comfortable (definitely a cure for narcolepsy) and the pillows thin. I highly recommend bringing your own blankets and extra pillows. The room overall was exceptionally clean and the staff very helpful and professional. For the price, this hotel was great and it is an excellent value compared to other hotels in the Dells.

If you have kids under 10 and want a very nice clean hotel in the Dells this is perfect. Easy for parents to watch their kids in the indoor water park from the hot tub. Little kids find it the perfect size. Low cost and clean. My kids are 8 and 10...I was worried the 6 foot slides would be too kiddie... yet they had fun for hours on the slides. Rooms are spacious and clean but not deluxe...right way to have a good Dells experience, but not cost a lot.
