Just returned from a 3 day trip to the Dells and a happy stay at the Grand Marquis with our 4 granddaughters ages 8-10. Despite the aged and somewhat tacky décor was impressed with this hotel and would be happy to stay there again. Though nothing fancy it was very clean and very comfortable - with free Noah's Ark tickets, but our granddaughters preferred the great indoor and outdoor pools and the hot tubs over the overcrowded and long lines of the big waterpark. We went mid-week and basically had the place to ourselves. My only suggestions would be have larger wastebaskets in the rooms - and a daily newspaper for patrons to share and read while watching the morning news in the lobby. Coffee makers would be nice - but thank you for the free morning coffee served off the lobby. For those with toddlers and young children, the indoor waterpark geared toward them looked full of fun! Overall a pleasant experience.
