I always recommend staying at the Wilderness one evening (free waterpark tickets day of check in and day of check out) and then stay one evening in downtown Dells at a clean family own operation to enjoy the novelty of the area.
I would not recommend this place. The owner is crabby and miserable. I new this when she greeted us but decided to stay anyway.
I just received a personally signed letter in the mail, at home, after my stay. That's why I love family own places..I said out loud. It turns out its not a thank you note. It's a bill for a remote we "removed" $14.17. Which I understand but the letter sums up her personality. The kicker is this final line,"what should I do with the tooth brushes, tooth paste, loose change, magazine and two bananas?"
The magazine is a dells coupon book. Really!!! With all the wonderful places to stay in the Dells, GO somewhere else. This hospitality is not worth overlooking the poor ac, rock hard beds, and thinning, scratchy sheets.
See pics of the note and decide if it's worth your stay.
