“What we were looking for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

It is a VERY old hotel. Straight out of the 80's and there are areas that do not smell great. Also the coffee in the morning shouldn't even be bothered with (powdered creamer ewww). But that being said I gave 4 stars because we decided to take our 2 children (5 and 4) on a last minute trip to the Dells for Memorial Day weekend. I found rates online here at 108.00 per night where as everywhere else was 150+++. We got in on Friday night and left Sunday afternoon. Glad we did because the clientele got very sketchy on Saturday night. But all night Friday and most of Saturday we did not have to share the parks with anyone. We were totally alone! The slides and pools were perfect for the kids and the location of the hot tubs to the pools made it perfect to relax and enjoy while they played. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Clearly the hotel needs to be upgraded but all and all we will come back.

My wife and I stayed here about 3 years ago so we knew what to expect. However, this time we were staying with our daughters age 1 & 2. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. Because we went just a few days prior to Memorial Day (which is when their busy season begins), we had the whole water park to ourselves. The indoor water park is perfect for kids. The water temperature is also perfect. This hotel is well taken care of inside and out and it's within walking distance to many shops/restaurants.

This was our first trip to the Dells and it was unforgettable. The resort's staff was nice and welcoming. Kids loved the slides and didn't want to get out even after staying all day in the water park. There are lot of activities in dells. Our 3 days trip was not enough. We will be back soon.

My husband and I were running out of ideas for how to entertain our 23 month old toddler during the cold Wisconsin winter, so I sought to find the perfect affordable hotel for toddlers in the Wisconsin Dells. We were looking for a hotel with a reasonably sized, shallow indoor water park geared specifically towards toddlers and without the huge crowds of the larger water parks. This one suited our purposes just perfectly. We requested and received a room right across from the entrance to the water park. We did hear some brief noise from kids in the water park during our stay, but considering all the other guests we saw appeared to be fellow families with toddlers, everyone seemed to be on the same schedule and there was no noise at all from about 9pm-8am. I would imagine that the refrigerator and microwave in each room were more essential than any on-site restaurant could be, just for baby food and milk bottles.

Since I read a review that the hotel is skimpy on the shampoo and toiletries, we brought our own. What a great piece of advice that was - the soap looked and felt like there were grains of sand embedded in it. Considering my only big complaint is regarding the soap, I'd say this was a pretty great hotel for the winter rates we paid.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights this past week and this place was wonderful! I love the decor. Our jacuzzi room was spacious and pretty. Would have been nice to have an in-room coffee pot, but there was coffee in the lobby at certain times for guests. Hotel staff was friendly and sweet, which made us feel like we were at home! Nice and cozy feeling to this quiet little gem in the Dells. We had the pool and hot tubs to ourselves! Much nicer than dealing with the annoyances of super packed mega waterpark hotels.

We were wanting just a place to take our 4 year that had some kind of pool for her. Let me tell you this hotel/resort was PERFECT!
For starters all the staff was very friendly and welcoming. One of the first things we did when we arrived was take our little one down to the waterpark and she absolutely LOVED IT! The water was at a perfect temp and just the right size for her. Another nice thing about this place is if you decide you want more of a bigger swimming pool to actually swim in, they do have one! This other pool also has three smaller slides for kids to enjoy too ;)
We were very impressed with how clean the whole hotel was, the halls, elevator and especially the room. You can tell they really care for their property.
Thanks Grand Marquis staff for a wonderful experience and we will be back and have even told my sister and friend already about our stay.

Room Tip: Great for family's with young kids that don't want all the commotion of the bigger waterpark...

We came back to Grand Marquis in Aug 2013 and had a wonderful stay. I have to compliment on the landscaping- there were flowers- both planted and potted- all over the grounds. Everything was in full bloom. It was so pretty. (Our first visit was in winter so this was new to us) There were grills and picnic tables in the center yard area too- nice touch. The pine trees make the area private and peaceful. My kids loved the pools and waterpark and were entertained for hours. I loved that it was quiet and not crowded. This is a great family hotel that is very comfy and cozy. It is definitely a favorite of ours.
