“Always a family winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2010

We stay several times a year, even though we live an hour away. Very friendly staff and the waterslides/wading pool are perfect for our 4 year old (they have a full size pool w slides in another area). She's enjoyed it the last two years. Basic room has fridge, microwave, 2 beds, a very accomodating staff, and it won't break the family budget. Great value - can't recommend high enough!

We decided to take a mini vacation with our four year old just because it had an indoor water park for little ones. We didn't even have to leave the the premises to do the rest of the expensive dells attractions. It was close to the tanger shopping mall as well as places to eat. The indoor park area was great for little ones, yet big enough parents could play too. We had our 9 month old with us as well and it was shallow enough in areas that she could sit and enjoy the water too. When asked where our daughter wants to go for vacation she says Grand Marquis! Very clean rooms/waterpark/pool area and super friendly staff. Prices were great as well! We will certainly be back!!

Just returned from a weekend at the grand Marquis. looks a little outdated but for the price we were pleased. Upon check in we inspected the room as anyone would and it was Super clean which is what we wanted since hearing of the recent bedbugs infestation across the country. The indoor
waterparks were great for families with younger children and was also very well maintained. We stayed in the back park and it has 2 good slides and several water features. Our 2 yr old twin boys had a blast!

We stayed at the Grand Marquis August 8-13. We checked out several hotels in the dells area and chose this hotel mainly for its price. And we are glad that we did. We don't know why some of the reviews gave the workers bad reviews but we do not have one complaint about them. In fact, they were very helpful with directions and any requests that we had. The three pool areas were very nice. Our children aged 22 months and 10 loved the pools and slides. It kept them entertained through the evening hours. The rooms were spacious enough. We had a double queen. Beds were comfortable. The pillows were a little thin but we had brought some from home so it worked out fine. This hotel is not in the middle of the all the action. However, if you are looking for a good hotel with nice pools, quiet rooms, and cheap prices, this is the place. I highly recommend.

We were disappointed with our stay, given the relatively high ratings here.

On the positive side the room and lobby, while both horribly dated, were very clean. Our grade-school aged child loved both pools and the modest water-park area. Location is good too; no more than 10 minutes drive from any of the major attractions, but far enough that access in or out was never hindered by traffic issues common at some of the more centrally located resorts.

Negatives, however, were plenty. Bedding was very uncomfortable; the pillows were ridiculously thin and the mattresses were hard and lumpy. We could not get enough signal strength to connect to the internet in our room on two different devices meaning we had to go to the lounge where the ancient-looking chairs were horribly uncomfortable as well. Most disappointing, however, was that the staff were often indifferent and sometimes downright argumentative.

We had modest expectations of the facility and amenities going in, and could have easily forgiven the shortcomings if the staff had exhibited any sense of appreciation for us, the paying customer. Instead we were made to feel like any small request we made was a terrible inconvenience. Even our attempt to minimize the workload on housekeeping by asking for towel-service-only one day became and ordeal. We're pretty easy people to please, but this place managed to fail to do that by a large margin.

I knew going into our stay here that we weren't going to get anything but an average hotel room. An added bonus is a small fridge and microwave. The room was clean and basic. I did not notice any noise from the hall or outside, nice. One complaint however would be some added hooks or something to hang the many wet towels on.
The "waterpark" and pools were nice and clean but cold. Our kids 6 yrs and 9yrs were always ready to go swim even after a long day at the local waterpark.
