The rooms were very nice. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. They are also pet-friendly there, which is amazing. It's in a good location with many things to do nearby. Had a wonderful experience there and would definitely return! :-)

My family and I had a great stay there. The water park and arcade are mostly for children under 10. I think older children might get bored after a bit. The staff was very friendly. Complimentary breakfast was decent, but I suggest getting up early to eat to avoid the crowd. Or you could drive in town which is appx....

Super easy to find. Check-in was easy and informative. Very very clean, I watched them edge clean the carpet with a hand tool. Indoor pool had great temperatures both air and water. "Hot tub" can be used by kids so it's more of a really "warm tub" that you can walk outside with so that was fun for adults. No...

Thank you for your review! We certainly appreciate feedback from our guests! Although we are not as big as some water parks you would find in Wisconsin Dells, we seem to fit in just right for our Northwoods location. We do thank you for staying with us and we look forward to your return visits in the future!

I should know better than to reserve a hotel on my cell phone, I booked the wrong one. When I call to cancel and reserve the correct hotel the travel agent (can't remember which one...Priceline, Expedia, you get my drift) they tell me we'll be charged for the night even if I don't stay there. When I tell the staff...

The staff was very friendly. Hotel was in decent shape but dated in many areas. Made reservations for a wedding but the rate came up incorrect. Was told rate on website was a mistake and that they would not honor rate. They would not discount but just said we need to cancel or pay the higher rate. Paid the higher...

Thank you for your feedback. I'd like to apologize for the rate confusion, as we most certainly would have honored the rate had it been brought to our attention. Our resort fee is industry standard and covers some of the amenities such as Wi-Fi and free parking for our guests. At $3.50, we try to keep costs low for our...

Enjoyed our 2 night stay in early Oct. Room was clean and beds very comfortable. Fireplace in the room was a nice addition. Bathroom could use an update. Outdated shower, unable to adjust shower spray, height of toilet and sink very low and limited counter space. Small microwave took up additional space on sink/counter outside of bathroom.

This is a comfortable hotel on the outskirts of Minocqua. The decor is rather dated but the actual accomodations were quite comfortable. The rooms were clean and well maintained. My only complaint was the lack of a sound barrier to the shower above our room. The breakfast that was included was very minimal and reminded me of a less expensive...

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were really clean and there's a lot to do here. We came for a birthday celebration and it was perfect. We miss breakfast but looked cool making your own waffles. We would love to come back
