We decided to go to the Dells this past weekend and made a last minute reservation at the Park Plaza. The main reason for picking the hotel was the fact that they allowed pets. We arrived friday were very suprised with the condition of the hotel. The rooms, lobby and common areas were all very clean. Some may complain that the hotel is too far away from the Dells, but on the contrary we thought it was perfect. Only a 15 min drive to the dells and about 5 mins to Ho Chunk Casino. Close yet far enough away that you dont have to deal with constant tourists. When we go back to the Dells we will be staying at the Park Plaza.

A friend and I stayed at this hotel while attending the Wisconsin writer's Conference. We had a very comfortable room which inluded free continental breakfast and free drink vouchers for the bar. This hotel has a very nice indoor pool and spa and the staff was very helpful. We would certainly recommend Park Plaza to anyone travelling in the area.

We stayed at the Park Plaza this past Saturday.

We wanted a little get away in Wisconsin for the weekend and this hotel worked perfectly. We had heard about this hotel via our radio and decided to book a room. It is fairly close to the Dells yet far enough away that you dont have the hustle and bustle of downtown Dells in high season.

The Park Plaza has a pleasant reception staff, nice rooms(though the bathrooms are a little tiny and lack counter space) and the most important thing to us, cleanliness!
The hotel offers complimentary breakfast in the restaurant attached to the hotel. The breakfast consisted of english muffins, bread,hard boiled eggs,muffins,apples and coffee cake. Beverages included coffee,tea,milk,orange and apple juice and hot cocoa.
I must admit we were expecting more having stayed previously at a Holiday Inn where the hotel had so much more but this was sufficient as we didnt stay at this hotel for the breakfast! =0)

While it is the slow season in the Dells right now, there are plenty of things to do..we went to Ho Chunk Casino and went to a few antique and craft stores...just a nice little getaway. We didnt eat at the restaurant or bar offered at the hotel because we decided to hit our favorite pizza spot in the Dells, Pizza Pub. For all the years we have gone to the Dells, we have always enjoyed great service and terrific food!

Definitely stay at this hotel if you are looking to save some $ in high season but plan on visiting the Dells.

We just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Park Plaza. The room was excellent. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Our biggest surprise was the Glacier Rock Restaurant. There's no reason to eat anywhere else. Also, the pool area was a lot of fun - especially the sauna. The location was perfect for visiting Devils Lake, The Dells, and Ho Chunk Casino. I will be back.

The Park Plaza is a nice place to say. It's far enough away from the Dells, but close enough to Devil's Lake State Park. I recomend this hotel over any others in the area, especially if you are looking for something that's a step up from the area motels. The whirlpool room was a bit noisy, but the room itself is quite large & very comfortable. Perfect after along day of hiking at Devil's Lake! The indoor pool was nice & staff was friendly. This place books up quickly on the weekends so be sure to reserve well in advance.

We chose this hotel based on a friend's recommendation. A regular room might have been fine, the whirlpool room (their most expensive room at $135) was unbelieveably noisy. The plumbing from the four floors above us was the loudest we've heard in any of the whirlpool rooms that we've stayed in. We called for 2 extra pillows the first night-even offered to come and get them on the 2nd call-they came 55 minutes later. Housekeeping cleaned the room very well-except they threw away a fabric cloth my Grandmother had given to all of us with glasses-that was on the vanity with my toiletries bag. The head of housekeeping said they must have thought it was a tissue! The manager walked away from us when we tried to talk to him on checkout. Never again!

My family and I stayed at Park Plaza Baraboo this past weekend and it was fabulous. The rooms are beautifully done, and are extremely affordable. The hotel has all the amenities of fancier hotels and it has a great restaurant that just opened. The food was wonderful and the staff went above and beyond for my family.
