We travelled with our 2 year old and were attracted wit a groupon deal. Our room had two queenbeds and on the 4th floor. Our time was quiet and pleasant. We spent couple of hrs in the waterpark. We were initially uncertain due to the recent health report, but felt better that the lodge is forthcoming about that incident. They have a disclosure when you check in. Also, looks like they have taken steps to keep it healthy by adding to the rigour. They monitor every kid and adult entering and leaving, which was a good sign. Water was warm. It is entirely indoor.If you have forgotten your child's safety vest, then they will give you one (We did forget ours).
The room was clean, it had a microwave and refrigerator. No kitchenware, but clean beds and couple of televisions and a clean bathroom. The staff at the front desk was helpful about giving information on what to do when in brainerd. We liked the breakfast, it is a good deal for the cost. There are a lot of non-residents who come for the breakfast, so it seems popular. It is situated close to whipple lake, which worked well for us.
However, as for the size, one should not try to compare this to bigger resorts like maddens or Kavanaugh. Think of it like a hotel with a mid-size waterpark. It is at a great location for families who need access to stores and being next to 371 and a lot of the big box stores within 1/2 mile, it provides the added advantage.
We stayed for couple of nights and had a good time.
