We stayed at Mt. Olympus three years ago, and our accommodations, although pricey, were good. We did have problems with noise late into the night, but the room was located by the parks and it was clean. Unfortunately, this was not our experience this time.
We thought we had booked a room in the same location as before. Proximity to the water and amusement park was important since our 5 year old son had extensive surgery on his foot and leg a few months ago and is still wearing a brace which makes walking long distances almost impossible. However we found out that we were about a mile from the main property, and the parking for the amusement and water parks was in a lot far away and uphill. As it turned out, we didn't go to the amusement park because the long walk caused his leg to hurt so badly he was unable to walk by the time we reached the car and drove back to our room.
Our room: the top bunk had a Subway wrapper left between the sides of the mattress and the frame. How housekeeping missed it I'll never know since we spotted it right off. We went to bed about 10 o'clock, exhausted, only to be awakened at 10:30 by housekeeping. They had gotten the wrong room number for a towel delivery. I had fallen asleep wearing ear plugs in anticipation of noise, and sure enough, after midnight the noise started. I'm not sure what other hotel guests were doing, but the sounds resembled a cattle roundup. Bumping into corridor walls and low background noise all night long. I could hear it clearly even with my ear plugs. I finally fell asleep only to be awakened once again by a knock on the door. It was 6:30 am, and a hotel guest had mistaken our room for his. I understand it wasn't the hotel's fault, but the end result was the same. No sleep.
The advertised free wifi is a joke! The connection was so poor, I finally turned my electronics off so it would stop trying to connect!
We had intended to stay until after lunch the next day since we had paid $354 for the room and hoped to take advantage of both the water park and the amusement park. However none of us wanted to drive the mile back to the main property, make the walk from the parking lot to the main building, make the trek from the building to the amusement rides. We drove into downtown and spent our money at a local arcade.
We will visit the Dells again, but we will never, ever return to Mt. Olympus.
