This place could remind you of a log cabin in the woods. Well maintained, very comfortable rooms, we had a king whirlpool room with a patio. They offer a breakfast which is fair, they also have a pub/restaurant in the event you don't want to go out to eat. For the kids there is a nice water park that will... More

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding which took place on the grounds. The wedding and reception were both nice, but there was a sewage smell just outside of the tent where the reception took place. It wasn't constant, but the smell wafted through the venue every so often. The room was nothing special and had some remnants of... More

This hotel on the southern end of Minocqua has a true northwoods feel. The rooms were large and comfortable....and especially CLEAN!! The staff was very accommodating and worked quickly and efficiently to meet guest needs. The place was fully booked near the end of July, so every employee was 'on their toes'. Loved the ambience and will stay here again.

Let me start off by saying that the 3 stars I gave this review is due to the incident on the water slides. Everything else about our stay was very enjoyable. This was our first time staying at The Waters. We liked the log cabin feel from the outside and when you first walk into the lobby. The continental breakfast... More

Not much to say about this hotel. The choice in the area is quite poor (there may actually be more Luxury hotels in Kabul or Tripoli for that matter) so we had picked what seemed to be the least scary of the hotels there. As we hadn't raised our expectations too much, we were not disappointed (except when we arrived... More

Rooms were big for a family of five. Nice to have breakfast each morning. Close to downtown area. The waterpark is on the small size but nice enough for younger age children. But my 13 and 9 year olds had a good time. Mincoqua in general is a great place.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights recently to visit his hometown of Woodruff. The first impression was good, the lobby is nice and has a comfy yet open Northwoods atmosphere. Liked that our room had outdoor access with nice wooden chairs to enjoy the outdoors. We had a double queen which was all that was available but we took... More

This is the third summer in a row that we have stayed at The Waters (usually a 4-5 night stay). Overall, it is always a great experience. The room was spacious enough for 3 adults, and was cleaned well every day. We noticed a breakfast change from last year...one of the waffle irons was taken out and two pancake irons... More

Nice comfortable bed, good linens. I was really put off by the dirty smell f the room. Everything looks really clean, sinks, tub, toilet, but the smell said old and dirty. I don't know if it was the drapes or sofa bed, maybe the carpet. We left the door open AND ran the air. Breakfast was poorly managed overall. The... More

This was our sixth stay with this hotel in the past eight years. We love the simplicity of the lodging, the huge hot tub and water park, easy access to town and the large outdoor spaces to play whiffle ball. It's not fancy and we noted the carpet in the rooms could stand to be updated, but the rooms are... More
