We were there for a wedding. Front desk staff were very rude - not just us, everyone we spoke to. Would not let us check into multiple rooms until everyone was there, even though we had put the rooms on our credit cards and had the confirmations. Very unhelpful. Northwoods décor is OK (knotty pine furniture) if you like that... More

Hotel is nice enough, staff needs a little help, one of the better hotel breakfasts I've had. Housekeeping forgot to make up the room one night (happens). Problem was front desk didn't really seem to care that they missed it. That just kind of put a bad spin on it, I have stayed here several times and will probably look... More

The room was clean and had plenty of space for two couple. Separate sleeping areas divided by the bathroom. Each area had separate TV's and nightstands. Room came standard with a fridge and microwave. Definitely a family resort due to the waterpark. Lots of hall noise from kids running up and down the hall with little supervision from parents. Not...

we stayed in the childrens suite and LOVED it, tons of room beds were comfortable and my kids 6 and 8 just loved their room, especially the "climbing wall". the rest of the hotel was clean and quiet even during a busy full weekend.

The hotel was very clean, the room was large and the kids waterpark inside the hotel was amazing. The entire family had a blast hanging out there for the day. I do have to say that I was not impressed with the staff at the restaurant though. The dinner waitress was very unknowledgeable about the menu and we never even... More

We recently visited the Brainerd/Baxter area on a visit through Minnesota. We decided on this area because we thought the touristy idea of visiting Paul Bunyan things would be fun. Unfortunately everything related to this legend has moved to another city! It didn’t really put a damper on the stay, as we enjoyed the drive through the State, but found... More

Everyone was so darn nice and the room was overwhelming! We took a mini-vacation to Brainerd, MN and stayed at Arrowwood Lodge. Since it was the middle of the week, we were able to upgrade to the Bear's Den suite which was over-the-top -- we have 3 rooms: king sized bedroom with whirlpool, 2 queens in another room with TV,...

This park was decent to go to. I didn't appreciate how they do not include breakfast, and how the cost was the same as the holiday inn in town, which does. It wasn't as clean as holiday, but was nice to have something different. Slides were interesting with the awesome colors going down, didn't like the water on the face... More

Great food. We had the beef tip appetizer which was enough for 2 to share. Just enough spice to keep you going back for more. Excellent. A must try. Ok service. Friendly staff. Pricey to stay. Stay and play is a good deal for just about anyone.

We did not stay here. Rather we brought the kids to the waterpark that is open to the public. It was too hot and humid for little babies so we came here and the kids loved it. There were friendly lifeguards and staff on duty. We really enjoyed it.
