Saw reviews of The Waters while traveling northern WI. We stopped by and was greeted by friendly staff. We decided to stay and was extremely when we opened the door to our room and saw how spacious it was. Very clean and roomy. Found our beds to be extremely comfortable. While we didn't use the pool or arcade we did... More

Our stay at The Waters was outstanding this past weekend as it is has been each stay for the last 6 years. The hotel is beautiful and well maintained. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They are what keeps us coming back. Rooms are always really clean. If, I the very rare instance anything is needed, staff is quick... More

This is our 2nd stay at the hotel. Rooms are huge. The whole entrance area and lobby are huge. If you want to relax and read, there are plenty of places to sit. The continental breakfast is okay. I left feeling full. Food is available until 10 am. The pool area is fantastic. Several indoor and outdoor pools. Perfect for... More

Plenty of room for all. Tent wedding was beautiful. The party continued in the Pub Event Center til 1AM. Staff was very accommodating. Must stay if... More

The hotel is like a lodge. It was very clean and the rooms were very nice. I would give 5 stars for that. Breakfast was included, but it wasn't what I expected. When for example yogurt was gone, 6 were brought out and gone immediately. No one was really on top to make sure enough cups, napkins, food. I would... More

There were so many things that went wrong I really don't know where to start ... First, let me say that I understand it must be difficult to find quality, competent staff. That being said, virtually ALL of the employees I encountered during my stay were LAZY, unmotivated, and couldn't care in the least. The lifeguards on duty epitomized this... More

4 in our group, 2 adults and 2 children. Water park was PERFECT size for our family (7 and 4 year old) and the food from the snack shack was the perfect dinner for a Monday night! Dad and I enjoyed a few beers near the pool while the kids played all night! The arcade was having some issues with... More

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.
