Reviewed July 23, 2013

My family has been staying at the Shamrock for over 30 years. The owners always remember us which is a nice touch. All these years later my daughter and her family also go there. She has great childhood memories attached to the Shamrock.
We watch the owner begin his day at 6:00 am when he begins cleaning up the grounds. Most times it's 11:00 pm when he closes the pool. Very hard workers and they go out of their way to try and please their guests.
Rooms are clean (bed a bit hard) but overall nice rooms.

The pool is very nice (I could sit there all day, and have) without doing anything else. I prefer the Shamrock to any of the new hotels that have gone up in the last few years. It is close to everything with a great hot dog place next door. Good food at great prices. You can walk two doors down to the Pancake House which is also good.
I would recommend the Shamrock to everyone. My family will never go anywhere else. Thank you for making all these years a great place for my family to stay.

We have been coming to the Dells for years and I always wondered why people stayed at the little mom and pop drive up to your door motels when you have so many big resorts to stay at with huge water parks included with your stay. Thats where we have always stayed every year. This year we wanted to do some different things like Noah's Ark. After hours of searching we decided to go with the Shamrock Motel. They included tickets to Noah's Ark with our stay. Plus free wristbands for everyone all days of your stay for Chula Vista indoor out door waterpark. PLUS they included a Splash card ($15.00 value) for free with lots of 2 for 1 deals for food, drinks and entrance to different attractions Including buy 1 get 1 free to Mt. Olympus. They also included for free a fun card ($4.99 value) with a lot more 2 for one deals. They also had Mr. Olympus tickets 50% off which drops the tickets to $19.99 while you stay with them.
Our nightly rate for all of this was $132.50 (plus $15.00 tax) which is way under what the resorts charge! The resorts have an additional resort tax which can run anywhere from 20 to 50 dollars extra a night depending on how much your room is. So we were not expecting much and hoping it was clean. We were so shocked when we checked into room 229. The room was so large! The room was clean also. The bathroom was a good size and clean. The out door pool was clean as was the indoor ones. If you look at their website all their pictures are the real thing! Clean and nice and look just like their website. Also because this is run by a mom and her daughter they put a lot of extras in that you would not normally see in one of the bigger resorts here. The pool was suppose to close at 10:00 every night. But because the kids were having so much fun every night we were there it was opened until 11. Understand, these people have been working all day but yet they seen we were all having fun so they stayed so we could have family time. None of the resorts we have ever stayed at here would do this. Its lights out at 10! They have fresh coffee every morning from 7-11 for everyone there. Not that you will be watching much TV but they have an outstanding selection of channels. They have many picnic tables and several grills on the grounds for guests to use. They also have coupons in the office for different things so ask them if your looking for something special. They are also very knowledgeable of the area! Also know that this is right across from Noah's Ark so it is right in the center of the Dells. You can walk to a lot of the big attractions!
We will definently be coming back here! The owners are some of the nicest people I have came across in the Dells.

Room Tip: Room 129 was HUGE! It is right infront of the outdoor pool. However it is right on the strip and a...

Dear BBQME2!

It was a pleasure to serve you and your family and to chat with you! We are family managed and take great care and pride in our property.

We had some warm and beautiful nights during your stay here in the Dells and seeing the kids having fun in the pool brought back wonderful memories of our travels during our family trips.

Our website pictures were taken spring of 2012, so as you wrote they are what you will actually see, as they are current.

Thank you again for taking the time to write your review! We look forward to serving you and your family next time you are visiting beautiful Wisconsin Dells!! :)

Myself, my friend and our 10 year old children stayed at the Shamrock for 2 nights. I was originally going to stay at the Hilton but thought we should be thrifty and spend our money on things on attractions and not worry about spending much time in our motel.

The good: This place is a great value. We stayed mid-week for $100/night. With wristbands to Chula Vista for the entire stay, $25.00 Noah’s Ark passes (you can get $10 next day passes when you leave Noah's Ark the first day!) and an abundance of coupons and combo packs.

I didn’t use the pools but the kids did and they looked clean and fun. The rooms was also clean and was large for a motel room.

The shower was spotless and had good temp control and the towels were not hairy (I read this was a problem for a few other reviewers, they must've gotten it figured out). The customer service was outstanding! We were always greeted with a smile and lots of information and help whenever we went to the office with questions. In particular, we had some noise issues (see the bad) and when I called the front desk, they immediately sprang into action and tried to find the source of the noise.

The bad: The first night of our stay, we were watching some TV before dozing off around 11pm when we noticed that we could hear someone else’s' tv over ours. When our TV was turned off, the noise was so loud and distracting that none of us could even think about sleeping. It sounded like someone brought with their surround sound Dolby speakers and hooked them up to an adjoining wall...it was bad. We called the front desk and while they checked around for the noise and asked our neighbors to turn down their TV, it still didn’t stop until 1am. Being on the 1st floor we could also hear everyone’s footsteps above us which was a bummer when we were really trying to get some rest to get back at all of the fun the next day.

Another bad is the fact that there is no coffee maker in the room. Kind of disappointing to have to walk to the office for a tiny cup of coffee then back again and again. So that you can wake up because you were up all night listening to your neighbor's TV.

And last but not least...the beds are hard as a rock but should be expected for a value motel. In preparation for them being very bad I went to Wal-Mart the first night and bought a foam pad to help out with this which helped and allowed for better sleep then had I not had it.

Overall if you stay at the Shamrock, expect firm-hard beds and some noise but also expect a great value and a clean place to sleep and shower with VERY friendly customer service. I would stay again but would ask for a 2nd floor room and bring with my egg carton cushion for the bed and a large coffee cup to fill up in the office each morning.

Room Tip: Get a 2nd floor room and close to the office if you like your coffee!

Hello Andrea,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review about our motel. I appreciate your honesty and feedback.

I'm glad to read that the staff were helpful in answering all of your questions , that you enjoyed the room, and that the kids enjoyed the pools!

I do apologize for the lack of consideration from fellow travelers. When we came to take care of the situation, it seemed as though they understood and complied. I'm sorry to read that they hadn't, we could/would have come out again had we known they hadn't complied.

I am glad to read that overall you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to serving you and your family next time you are visiting beautiful Wisconsin Dells!

We took our 3rd trip (3rd year in a row) to WI dells with our kids. (8 years old and 5 months old)We decided to try a new motel this year, since we started this yearly tradition so far in the 3 years we have stayed at a differant place each time. This place is great. it is clean, convienant and the staff are very VERY fast and happy to help you in any way. When we arrived we were early and they were still cleaning our room.. we checked out the outdoor pool, and the playground (swing set, horse swings and a small turntable play yard for kids, grills and picnic tables) It was a great set up. They let us check in as soon as our room was cleaned! The room is great. shower was super clean, shower curtain looked brand new, no hair dryer (called the office though and they will bring one right to your room) the bed was actually very very comfortable! Since our daughter is only 5 months old we brought along the pack and play and set it up at the end of the bed, there was still enough room to move around with that all set up.. and those can take up alot of space! its pretty standard for the hotels/motels in the dells to offer water park tickets, discounts and little buy one get one deal cards... the shamrock this year offered free chula vista tickets for everynight of the stay (they give u a wrist band and actually require u to wear it weather you go to the water park or not) they also had a 40% off discount for noah's ark... and they give you 2 differant buy one get one free deal cards and fun cards. They have a fun game room for the kids, indoor pool is clean and well maintanced. outdoor pool area is great! basketball hoop, slide and diving board (both pools were extremely cold.. the weather was in the 70's and 80's though so maybe thats why) The guests next to our room complained about bed bugs, the owners were in and out of the room and even called an exterminator in to check it out. The guests had stayed at the shamrock for over 5 years in a row and they ended up leaving that night. We asked the owners what happened and they told us, and the exterminator said there was no bed bugs, we went in the room to even confirm and its true.. there was nothing! The guest smashed a bug on the wall and was extremely upset thinking they had bed bugs or something.. apparently he was drunk.. and it was obvisous! naturally we just wanted to check our room and there was NOTHING.. the mattress looked very clean and in great shape.. no sign of any gross bugs! We stayed on the lower level 2 bedroom queen room. i was worried about noise from the upper units but honestly did not hear anything. i just heard someone walking around one time. If you are sitting outside on the chairs outside the window of your room.. and someone is walking around on the walkway upstairs.. THAT IS noisy.. but you cant hear it from inside your room! Also i was worried about the parking.. the hotel was full and we stayed out late a few nights and when we returned to the motel there was still at least one or 2 parking spaces available and in the even there is not, they let you park in the handicap spaces (as long as they're is isnt needed by someone else) and they let you park in the grass area as well!

all in all, we would definetley stay here again. the location is great, right on wisconsin dells parkway (right where you WANT to stay )walking distance to a conveince store, food, waterparks, and tons of attractions!

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review about our property. We really appreciate it!

The beginning part of 4th of July Weekend, wasn't Wisconsin's shining moment weather wise, as it was a little chilly, which does factor into the coolness of the water, but it sounds like you had a good time anyway! Our Queen Guest Rooms, which is the room style you had stayed in, were remodeled Spring 2012. We truly pride ourselves in maintaining our property, exteriors and interiors.
We take any concerns from customers seriously and want to ensure everyone's stay is pleasant and comfortable. We felt that we took the appropriate actions to assure you and your family had a great stay!
It was great to see your smiling faces walking back from watching the fireworks display just down the road on the 4th. It's so wonderful to see families enjoying their time in Wisconsin Dells!
We look forward to hosting you again the next time you are in Wisconsin Dells!

The Shamrock is a great place to stay if you aren't picky about hotels. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. Upon check-in you are given tons of coupons and a map. With your stay you are given free admission everyday to Chula Vista waterpark and 40% off waterpark passes each day to Noah's Ark (which is right across the street!) The room itself has a table and chairs, dresser, mini fridge, and a microwave. They have an indoor pool, outdoor pool, and a hot tub. The hotel itself was very quiet when we stayed. We were able to sleep without hearing any noise from anyone. Our room was cleaned each day and we always had enough fresh towels. We didn't see any stains on anything. It is a bit outdated but we didn't go on vacation to be in our hotel the entire time, so it didn't make a difference. The hotel is not very expensive compared to the other fancy hotels in this area.

We were in a second floor double queen which was spacious and clean. There were windows at both ends of the room which was really nice. Staff very friendly and helpful. The pools were fantastic: both indoor and outdoor pools were very clean and in good repair. The outdoor pool is nine feet deep with a small diving board, something you don't see much these days, and we loved it,
