“Stay here every year!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

We stay at the Shamrock every year for over the past 8 years! We love the personal attention and close proximity to local attractions. It is always clean and the staff is always friendly! Great value for your buck!

The Shamrock is a motel that is privately owned. That is becoming a thing of the past with Mt. Olympus buying up all the small hotels/motels and ripping out the pools at each of those places. The Shamrock's location can't be beat! It is across the street from Noah's Ark water park (which you get free tickets for), there are restaurants all around and it is not far from any attraction. The rooms are VERY clean. You have choices of different types of rooms too. Everyone who works there from housekeeping to the front desk are very courteous and friendly. There is an outdoor pool and an indoor area that includes a pool, kiddie pool, and a hot tub. It was cold when we were there so the indoor pools came in handy. There are outdoor grills that seem to get used often and a playground area. It does get crowded on the weekends so book ahead. The prices are reasonable for the Dells area.
The down side is the rooms have one big window and it is where everyone walks so there is traffic going past your window often.
However, I would recommend staying at the Shamrock and keep smaller places like this open!

Room Tip: They do have family rooms but not many so book early.

Stayed for 3N. Great management with wonderful hospitality. Noah's Ark passes came with the stay. The room was clean & spacious, a bit dated. The beds were hard but surprisingly comfortable to sleep. I like the separate vanity off the bath. The motel is across from Noah's Ark & there are restaurants on each side. One downside to the room is no sheer panel on the window. If you want natural light you loose your privacy. Did not use outdoor pool. Kids enjoyed indoor pool. Jacuzzi very large, could be a little hotter though. Downside...I'm not used to people hanging outside the rooms smoking & drinking. Didn't particularly like walking past that with the kids. Plus there were beer bottles on the parking lot in the mornings. There was a large group & they'd play loud music. At least they were courteous to lower the volume at 11:00 pm. It's a decently priced motel with amenities, but I would pass on a future visit.

This was out first trip to the Dells. I had done some research prior to booking and was impressed with all the reviews and the fabulous location, 5 minute walk to Noahs Ark, restaurants, shopping. The rooms were basic but most importantly, clean and with all the basic necessities. The outdoor and indoor pools were fantastic as were all the amenities, clean and well taken care of. From the outdoor BBQ's, swings and green space it was obvious that friendly and courteous staff take a great deal of pride and satisfaction in offering such a great family experience, one we will not forget. The views from our from doorway seating area were filled with excited children and relaxed adults. A close walk to most everything the Dells offered, Duck Tours, Jet Boat, Tommy Bartlett show, and fabulous restaurants. Our 4 day stay flew by leaving us wishing for more. In a world of grandiose Theme Parks and Hotels with staff who can't be bothered to say Hi, it is truly refreshing to see a family run down to earth Motel such as The Shamrock!!!
Quiet, safe and secure and with everything you need with a great location!! 5 Stars! See you next year for 5 nights...at least.

We had 3 rooms in mid-June and all 3 were great - very clean with new mattresses on the beds. Some of the best rooms we have ever had. They have on-site indoor AND outdoor pools which are very clean and very well maintained. Also great location across the street is Noah's Ark which they give you free passes to everyday you stay! The owners and staff are so nice and friendly we can't wait to go back! Housekeepers are prompt, look happy and do a great job! We are so lucky to have found this gem because Mt Olympus had bought the other hotels we used to stay at and tore out all the on-site pools. We hope this never happens here because we come to the Dells multiple times a year and will be staying here everytime! Keep up the good work and don't change a thing you are doing everything right! Thank you for saving our vacation and the Dells!

I stayed here 2 nights along with my husband and 11 year old son. What a great find!!

Our room was comfortable and clean. It was also very quiet although the hotel was nearly full. We really enjoyed spending time sitting on the chairs outside our room people watching and enjoying the couple storms that came through in the evening. The tv was an older model tv, but it was fine. Shower worked good. We loved having a fridge and microwave in the room.

The pools were excellent! The outdoor pool was my son's favorite and included a slide, diving board, and basketball hoop. There was plenty of loungers around the pool to sit in the sun.

The indoor pool was great when it rained in the evening. It was a large pool with a waterslide. The hot tub was one of the largest I have seen in a hotel and could easily fit at least 10 adults comfortably. There was also a small indoor kiddie pool for the little ones to splash around in.

The best feature of the hotel was the location. We loved being right across the steet from Noah's Ark (we could watch the splash from the Flash Flood ride from our room) since we had free passes for every day of our stay. No paying for parking!! We also loved being close to a few restaurants including Hot Dog Avenue, Mr. Pancake, and Pizza Pub. We parked the car when we arrived and didn't use it again until we left.

My husband and I spent time talking to the owners and they could not have been any nicer! It is truly a family run business that really cares about their customers. What more could you ask for when everything seems so "corporate".

Of course the motel is very basic. But you are also paying 1/4 of the price compared to a few of the large hotels in the area. I hope the family never sell out to Mt. Olympus. I love to support local business and we will return.

Directly across from "Noah's Ark Water Park" / "The Ducks" / "Jet Boats" and the "Zip Line" offices. We stayed 2 nights, and had a ball !! The indoor and outdoor pool as the hottub was used every evening, We asked for a nice place in the area to eat and the management staff gave a great choice 2 blocks away This hotel is not owned by the major water parks which was great, give Mom and Pop your business ! (there again a very clean hotel)

Room Tip: call ahead, ask questions regarding what you are looking for.
