Best place to stay with small children

My husband and I will be traveling to the Dells in March for a couple nights. We will be taking our 4 year old and our 21 month old daughters. What is the best hotel/indoor water park to stay at? We are looking for age appropriate activities in the indoor waterpark. Thanks for your help!

Great Wolf Lodge would be a good choice. Cute themeing, and they have a few "toddler only" sections including a small waterslide or two. Everything is also really close together, so it cuts down on having to walk a lot with little ones on tow. And they have a clock show in the lobby every evening that's geared towards young children.

Great Wolf is great for ages 10 and under so I second the poster's recommendation above.

I third the motion. Great Wolf has nice facilities although it can get pricey.

Another option would be Chula Vista. They have good deals on condos where you'd have plenty of space to spread out, plus kids could nap in a separate bedroom. Very lux setup. Underground passage to the waterpark with plenty for their ages, all in one big room so no worries about getting lost. GW does have multiple waterpark rooms, something we didn't care for.

Great Wolf Lodge, without hesitation. You'll find plenty of hotels, motels, resorts, B&B's, and campgrounds....but none hold a candle to Great Wolf Lodge. Call the Lodge direct, they often offer discounts not posted on line. Military, city employee (doesn't matter what city), package deals, etc. are often not posted but offered when you call direct.

I agree that for the age of your children Great Wolf is a good option. As the kids get older there are better hotel options. The Polynesian or Mnt Olympus are good if you are looking for less expensive options for the ages of your children. Mnt Olympus has an indoor theme park with some nice kiddie rides.

If price is not an issue, Great Wolf would be my choice. If you would like to spends less money, Polynesian.

IMHO Mt Olympus is too spread out.

Great Wolf for sure. My kids love it there and can't wait to go back. I enjoyed it too.
