The room was very spacious. The waterpark was a lot of fun for the whole family. It activities for all age groups. The only negative was that you have to have the room key inserted in an activation slot to run the heater/ac.

It's all average. If you have a 10 year old or younger, it's a good water park. About an hour max. Close to granite peak for skiing. Can't imagine staying there as your only destination. Rooms are average with a log cabin theme. Brown carpet, which always creeps me out a bit. But it's a good one night stay if you need to be in Wausau with a kid.

Dear Funskifamily, I am very sorry you left with an ‘average’ experience after a visit to our water park and our hotel. Most all of our water park patrons enjoy themselves for hours on end and regret when they run out of time, so I’m not sure what part of the many splashing good opportunities you may have missed. We get rave reviews on the guest room sizes and amenities as well. I don’t really know how to respond to your brown carpeting comment, but I want to thank you for taking the time to share your opinions on your all too brief visit.

We stayed here in January 2014 for two nights. We enjoyed the waterpark. The breakfast buffet was ok. Not much difference between the free buffet during the week and the $10 buffet on the weekends. The waterpark is nice, clean, with plenty to do. The room was large, including a nice sitting area. The bathroom is tiny, but functional. I would recommend this place.

Great service, comfortable and clean rooms, fun décor. Recommend joining their travel club. I try to stay at Stoney Creek/Grand Lodge when I can - I travel the state for work. Wish there were more locations in WI!

Room Tip: join the travel club - you may become "guest of the week"!

We reserved the standard room. They accommodated our large group, and upon arrival upgraded us to a fireplace suite. Was a great room. The guest services was exceptional. No matter what you might forget, they have it, at NO CHARGE. The staff is overly friendly and helpful. The hotel rooms and water park are very clean. The only negatives were the on site restaurant is lacking, in service and in taste. Also, the shower area in the locker rooms, in the water park, are getting very worn. They looked gross and I was thankful we had a room so we didn't have to shower there. All in all, a perfect stay. Thank you Grand Lodge!

Clean rooms tho the pillows were not comfortable. Nice water park for the entire family. Frontdesk was nice to me. The manager & event coordinator do not return calls if you have questions before you arrive - new management needed that care about those staying (sounds like a fun job to me) WiFi kept cutting out. They have a weekend brunch which is good but not huge only $9 for adults and $6 for kids up to 12. There was a gentleman at the front desk and maintenance man that were helpful. Maintenance worked on a room key reader that was not working on an ouside door right away and it was -10 degrees.

New, clean, beautiful water park hotel near Granite Peak ski area. We like nice, 5 star hotels, and this place matches any one of them. It's clean, the queen size room is huge, beautifully appointed and furnished, and comfortably accommodated my family of five. The staff is really nice and helpful. Breakfast good enough to fortify my family for skiing, but dinner out of the hotel is a must. The water park is beautiful and fun, whole lodge and water park is much, much nicer than Timber Ridge in Lake Geneva.
