“wish we'd stayed someplace else”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

With all the hotels in the Dells, seems like we could have done better. The room didn't seem to be vacuumed, there were no Kleenexes, only one wastebasket, and the bedding was a thin blanket (reminded me of what they give you in a hospital). The mattress is so hard my body hurt and had trouble sleeping. No security latch on door which seemed odd. Did seem like they tried but just don't get it.

In the center of dells exactly where I needed to be, and literally the price was a lot better than most of the hotels. On top of that the rooms looked very clean, and newish. So if anybody is looking for a reasons ale price and in prime locations this is the place to stay at!

We stayed at the Malibu for two nights with our 3 kids. The staff was super friendly and spoke to you by name. You just don't get that in the chain hotels. Like another reviewer said the low price had me worried but there was no need! It was clean and quiet my family and I slept like babies. The only problem was that the wifi is slow and sometimes doesn't work. While my 16 year old had a probl with this it really wasn't a big deal as we spent most of our time at the water park and enjoying the dells. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to friends and family!

Went to the dells for a day and instead of paying 200$ for a water park resort found this place and it included passes which the water park was very nice and a lot of fun! The motel it self is basic out room was clean we were looking for a simple clean place to sleep since we were out all day/night having fun. The owner is a very nice man likes to talk. Would most likely stay there next Wisconsin dells trip and will recommend if you're looking for a simple room to just sleep in and keep your things.

Did not get to sleep until after midnight when the kids went to bed. Kids appear to be regulars, with relationship to staff.

Room Tip: Check out the newer multistory motel across the street. I wish I had, as five hours sleep was not e...

Free Chula Vista passes. Very clean and well kept room with heater, fridge, microwave, and cable. Owner is very friendly and nice offering us Turkish coffee and baklava during check-in Great location near Lake Delton and Dells attractions. Would definitely come back again.
