“Nasty”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

This hotel was beyond disgusting. The main maintenance man was bragging to another customer about how many times he had been in jail for violence. Dirty dirty room with pubs all over bathroom floor (that was about to cave in any moment.) The vent on the bathroom ceiling was hanging and upon showering the shower handle fell off. We were only given Chula Vista passes and none to places like Mount Olympus as promised. Upon reading other reviews, it sounds like the kiddie pool has not been filled or working in years as it was filled with trash and glass. The outside pool was filled with very broken down chairs, glass all over the cement where kids are playing, and 70's looking chair cushions in the bottom of the pool. The room and whole hotel were very dirty. The beds needed replacing a decade ago and felt awful. The pillows were so stained and only covered by a nasty pillowcase. There is numerous safety concerns here one being the door tithe inside pool was propped open at all times. Avoid this hotel like the plague.

We stayed here, as there were no other available hotels that had two rooms. Upon walking in the room, we immediately started calling around to see if there were any other rooms that happened to open up. This place stinks, is dirty, the rooms are gross, and the staff are not friendly either. Of course nothing else was available so we stayed our two days. We will never stay here again and will make sure no one we know does either.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else

I have stayed here with friends over the summer before and although I was totally worried, our experience was not too bad; so, I came back with some family out of town who had never been to the dells. Needless to say I didn't want to take them to a dump and totally ruin their experience and honestly we all think this place is pretty decent for the price you get which is crazy high during the summer anyway. We r not so snobby about things either so I guess we just felt the experience was standard to any busy tourist place like mertly beach.
During our stay, there was an Indian lady staffed in the morning at front desk. It was a bit interesting that she wore her Indian clothes but I was surprised that her English was really good & she was quite friendly and talkative. My family is from New York and it wasn't strange or anything, used to seeing immigrants all the time.
- no breakfast
- pool indoor and outdoor = clean and we were having so much fun the staff let it remain open for an extra 30min for us (closes at 10)
- we stayed in rm 201 w deck overview and sat out there at nt had drinks- obviously we r not partying like back when we were 21 so ev thing was fine. We even met some other people from our hotel and invited them up for drinks onto the deck
- FREE NOAH'S ARCH TICKETS!
obviouslly if you r bringing people here for the first time, Noah's arc is classic !
- there's swings and playground area on the grounds- which was nice for the kids.
- location is good too, walking distance to a lot - we taxied to the main strip

I did not read the reviews before booking this hotel and boy I wish I did. This place is disgustingly dirty - I can't believe the health department has not closed it down!! When a 10-year old takes one step in the room and says, "Mom, I do not want to stay here!" That should say it all! Do not be fooled by the nice picture. It smelled, I don't think it has had a good cleaning, probably since these people took over ownership. There was one nice American gentelman who was involved - may be dating one of the workers - he said he has been trying to turn the place around for 6 months, but it is going to take 6 years!! We originally booked for 3 nights, but could not bring ourselves to stay there for even one - Luckily we found another nice hotel. They gave us a receipt that voided our credit card transactions (charged a $25 cancellation fee); however, it has been 9 days now, and I have not seen a refund on my credit card as of yet. As others have said - you have been warned!!

This is the nightmare of all hotels. Our room was dirty, the walls in the stairwells and hallways were filthy. Our tub had a sticker stuck on it from the crotch of a new swimsuit. The shelf was pulling off the wall, beds were hard, pillows flat. One pillow case per pillow(yuck). Outdoor pool was not heated, indoor pool no towels, when we asked for towels had to wait a long time while front desk clerk was on the phone with someone else complaining about their room. The indoor pool had black mold on the walls, I cant believe this hotel is passing health codes. We had no chain on the door, it was broken off. Wisconsin Dells is such a fun family place with many large and small nice places to stay, This is not one of them!!!!

Generally do not go to this hotel again. you end up with asthma for bad smell and unclean rooms. you cannot sleep in the moring due to janitors knocking to come in righ while you are dressing. The matresses are all half broken, no electric outlets.... many things to mention. I am sure the owner may read this. What is stated on the hotel's website is all lie, lie and lie. The busness owner wants to make money without any investment. I so him driving Classic 2012 Mercedez-Benz but i am not sure if he invested more than $ 10, 000. in 10 years.
One reminder to Wisconsin Department of Health-This hotel is not safe for health, it needs to be supervised and closed.

I'd rather stay in my car. Nothing looks to have been upgraded in ten plus years. Asked for clean bedding but only got sheets. Went out to Walmart to buy pillows. totally grossed out there is a reason why resorts cost so much. Lesson learned.
