This was our final stop in our Dells tour and we stayed overnight to sample the rides and the accommodations. We had a third floor room overlooking the pool. The room was large, had rustic features (log furniture and antlers...) and had a small but usable balcony. The room was a little run-down with a broken outlet cover by the bathroom sink and general wear and tear but it was not major.
Check in was prompt and efficient and we were directed to entrance 3 for parking and to get to our room. It was raining outside and entrance 2 had no overhead protection so that was a little strange (and wet).
We hit the indoor wave pool once we checked in and it was a blast! They alternate the strength of the waves every time so you do not know what it expect (some can be quite intense!!).
The next day we checked out the rest of the parks and they were all enjoyable. There was a good selection of rides across all the parks. The front desk said they were full that week but none of the parks seemed crowded (except for the wave pool). Many of the pools have features like basketball and volleyball nets which is nice. Please note that it is a 10 minute plus walk between some parks (longer if you go indoors). We walked to one park and after an hour they closed the outdoor pool (no reason given when asked) so we had a long walk to get to another outdoor park.
If you are looking for a park with a good mix of indoor and outdoor activities - this is a great choice.
