We stayed at The Waters for our Christmas holiday. Outstanding customer service. Very prompt answering requests. Smiles from every employee and each one asked if we needed anything. Rooms were very clean and spacious. The beds are so comfortable! Hotel is always clean. Love the patio/balcony. Breakfast had a great variety with a fire going in the breakfast area. And...

This was my family's second time staying here.. The rooms and the rest of the hotel are very clean. I used to be a housekeeper, so I'm picky about a clean room. This place has passed the test both times. The staff I have encountered we're friendly and helpful. I will definitely visit again, and recommend you do too.

First I would like to say , I do not generally take time to leave reviews, but our experience was so negative I felt I needed to do so in this case. We and other family were visiting over the Holidays. Our family has stayed at this hotel in the past many times and had a great time. However we...

Beautifully decorated hotel and gorgeous loft suite with 3 TV's, fireplace & a huge balcony. Loved being able to get a Starbucks drink and sit by the beautiful lobby stone fireplace. Bartenders/waitresses were courteous and friendly, despite being understaffed. (Two ladies to run the bar and restaurant each night we were there....took over an hour to get our food). Housekeepers...

This is a beautiful north woods log style hotel and indoor water park. Great snowmobiling from the hotel also. Rooms are large with pleasant views, clean and comfortable. Good beds and TV. Good bar and good food, however, restaurant has limited days and hours, depending upon the season and occupancy.

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...
