“great for smaller kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

we stayed only one night at this hotel but it was clean and nice, the water park and pool are perfect for smaller kids, I was able to sit in the hottub and watch my kids without worrying they would be trampled or hurt and the pool area was fun with a couple of slides that my husband and I could even go down. it was very nice and quiet.

Room Tip: bring your own pillows the pillows here are too large and hard, other than that its great

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

When it came time to plan our (now) annual Spring Break trip to the Dells I figured we'd try one of the larger hotel/waterparks since our son was one year older and I always like to explore new places. But after looking at options we again chose the Grand Marquis. It's value, location and amenities were too good to pass up.

Our almost five year old was still young enough to enjoy the indoor water park and this time we were able to spend more time in the larger pool and (with my help) he was able to go down the larger slides.

I think those mega resorts would have been a little too much for him and I know their costs would have been too much for me!

We stayed in the exact same room as last year (by request), a Junior Suite which gave us a little more room. Everything at the hotel was exactly the same as last year (Deja Vu) but in this case that was a good thing. Will we come back again? I didn't think we would after last year but it may be hard to pass up the Grand Marquis' great value as long as our son will continue to enjoy it.

We went mid-week during out kids spring break and had the run of the place. Nothing has changed since last year. The kids love the pools (haven't outgrown them yet!?). Only 2 minor issues. First was that the hot tub in the newer (east) waterpark wasnt working (as in it was not heating the water). I'm sure they have it fixed by now. Second was that they would not place me on the top floor which I perfer as they did not want to "open up" those rooms. This was a first for that request not being obliged at a hotel. I found this odd as we stayed wed through fri and it appeared all the rooms on the upper level had been booked for the weekend. Lots of good restaurants and shopping in the area. Nice stay all around.

I stayed at this hotel numerous times and impressed every time by how pleasant stuff is and how nice, clean rooms are. There is a nice swimming pool area, nice water park for kids without the crowds of bigger water parks. Hotel has a great location next to many restaurants and night life. Very nice place to stay for a long weekend or just a day

We went to the Grand Marquis for a quick winter getaway. I was pleased. Exactly what i was looking for- a quiet place with a just-the-right-size waterpark to play. i could relax in the hot tub & see my kids a few feet away splashing around & going down the slides. (i dont like the huge hotels/waterparks. they are too overwhelming) The hotel was clean & comfortable. Great off season prices. We would definitely go back again. There is an empty area on second floor that i was told was a former restaurant. its a shame that the area is not being used. maybe during peak season, they could use that area for a family activity area, or something.

Thank you for the nice comments. Now that winter is over, we would love for you & your family to come stay with us again. All of the attractions are starting to open, so there is more for families to do. Remember we also have the large outdoor pool & areas to grill outside. Have a great summer.

Well, we did a one day overnight stay, we used to go to the copa cabina, but it got bought out and ruined by a big chain in the dells. We found this place.

Upon arrival staff was friendly and we got our room right away at noon. The room was clean, no bugs, or nasty stuff. I did notice some rust on the door frames, but no biggie. Our sink was very slow to drain, but manageable. The beds and pillows were comfortable, and the temperature control worked fine. The pool area was nice with a suana. Several hot tubs, a kiddie pool and a main pool with three slow but fun slides. The main pool got to just around five feet deep. The waterpark was suitable for families with young kids, we all enjoyed the five slides and many splash areas, a major issue you have to plan for is getting scrapped on the flooring, it has to have something to give running kids traction and that means hard and bumpy, now this causes a minor issue when transitioning from a fast moving smooth slide surface to the traction flooring, lots of minor scraps, and scratches. I'd love to say I know how to fix this, but I've seen this at other places too.

I actually like the stay overall, we had fun, we paid 100 bucks for offseason. I would say the small issues might be bigger if we had to pay a higher rate. It was enjoyable, and we probably will go back.

This hotel is great for younger kids....but Im over 50 and I love the waterslides myself! the hotel is very clean.....staff is pretty good...some could be friendlier...but most are great! They do a very good job on the upkeep of this hotel.....unlike other dells motels which make the outside of the hotel look good and let the rooms and interior of the hotel go to heck....this hotel keeps ALL parts of the hotel in great condition
