“Great Place for a Wedding / Reception”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

A wedding and reception brought us to Barneveld. We booked a Standard Double Queen guest room. Our room, #115 (ADA room) was exactly as described in the website. This room was extremely clean and located close to the Banquet Hall.

The lobby was nice and the people at the front desk were very polite and helpful.

The Banquet Hall and Pub was very nice and much larger than we had expected. The food was served banquet style, everything was hot, organized and looked after.

We had a pleasant experience at the lodge and everyone enjoyed the party facilities. Great Job!

We had a very good breakfast there.

Super close to Cave of the Mounds, and only about 25 minutes from House on the Rock. Waterpark was fun for my daughter, age 9. Love pool area, because there is room to swim if you want, but also an area for basketball, and a small waterslide. Two bigger waterslides are separate and so is toddler area and hot tub. Staff is very friendly and helpful! The location is beautiful, and away from the city congestion. Small bar/restaurant attached to pool area was very convenient to order a burger or chicken strips for lunch without leaving the pool area. Excellent continental breakfast, clean, well stocked, good coffee! Rooms were clean. We have stayed here twice now.

I love the hotel and staff at Deer Valley Lodge and would highly recommend to everyone who wants a nice hotel with water park at a reasonable price. The rooms ate roomy and clean. The location is beautiful and away from the city rat race.

Water park appears unclean in general. Peeling paint, messy, dirty locker rooms, water appears dirty, cloudy and was very cold. Little supervision for number of users. Was not sure if there was certified life guards on duty ever. In general not sufficient housekeeping or upkeep. Dirty floors and tables found in entire lobby and breakfast area. Could be a nice place with better management. Ridge Point Rondevous is closed. Will not go back.

We appreciate your feedback and we sorry our Water Park didn't meet your expectations. Our Water Park staff cleans the Water Park on a daily bases. They take great pride in testing and keeping the water clean and up to code. The water temperature is always kept at 83 - 84 degrees. We will be sure to pass your comments along to the staff so they can make adjustments accordingly. We are aware of the small area on the pool deck that has chipping paint and we are in the process of getting this fixed. When we have our Tower Slides operational we have certified Lifeguards on staff per the State requirement.

The Lobby area is a popular place for hotel guests to gather, play games, and hang out. We do our best to keep the Lobby area clean as we realize it is the first thing our guests see when they arrive. During your stay we were hosting multiple families during Spring Break and the Lobby was constantly being used. We will let our cleaning staff know about your concerns.

We are also sad to see that Ridge Point Rendezvous the restaurant just up the road form us has closed. We hope to see it open again soon. Since they have closed many guests have enjoyed the numbers of restaurants in Mt Horeb an 8 minute drive East on Hwy 18.

Thank you for your comments.

Had wedding at Deer Valley Lodge. Beautiful banquet hall overlooking golf course. We had 300 guests and the facility easily accommodated us. Food was terrific. Event coordinators were with us from day 1 all the way through the wedding day. They were great help, no need to for a wedding planner. Hotel , water park and golf course were a amenities for all our guests. No reason to leave the resort the entire weekend.

We were in town for a wedding and were disappointed in the overall experience here.

I do have to say the rooms were clean and the service was great, but that is where it ends.

Waterpark- gross!! Dead flies everywhere, paint peeling off the floor, sticking to feet. Rust, grime, etc. The hot tub was full of froth (meaning not clean).

Breakfast- not much variety, no fruit. They don't put out tea bags because they say the guests steal them. Whatever!

For $100+ per night, there was no value. No microwave or fridge. You had to pay extra for one. Pay extra for cribs, toothbrush, etc. I felt very nickle and dimed.

If you have a choice, skip Deer Valley and find another option.

Room Tip: Stay on the 3rd floor. Very noisy on the 1st and 2nd floors.

My husband and I were looking for a place somewhere quiet, but not a super small motel. The DVL delivered so much more than we expected. We just pulled the place up on the GPS and decided to give it a whirl. The view is awesome. We aren't even golfers, but there is a hiking trail behind the lodge that is a couple of miles that offered some great views and nature. The water park was great! The slides were open until 8pm and the whole pool/hot tub area open until 11pm. The hot tub is large! There were two life guards on duty monitoring the slides, which are great for adults too!:) The water park wasn't real crowded at all, but we stayed after kids went back to school for the season. There were also no events going on during our stay. They have a saloon in the hotel and some basic necessities you can purchase at the front desk area, like razors, aspirin, etc. They have a cooler with not only pop, but beer cans that you can purchase and take to your room. There is a concession stand in the pool area where you can order pizza and snacks. We ordered a pizza and they delivered it to our room along with paper plates and silverware. It was very good! Our room was very clean and quiet. The tv was pretty out dated, but that wasn't real important to us. All in all this was a fantastic place to stay! It was $120 on a Saturday night, while the Holiday Inn down the road with a small indoor pool was $40 more! Staff was very friendly. The atmosphere is very friendly and homey. It felt like a nice big kids camp with a few more luxuries.:)

Room Tip: Third floor is the most quiet.
