“Nice watermark for kids 1-10, rooms/hotel older than most”
Reviewed 15 September 2010

We stayed at this hotel for their wi state fair package. For $149 you got a night at the hotel, watermark passes for all, 4 tix to state fair, a state fair backpack, and a few other items. Decent price.

The watermark is newer and is great for younger kids. It is small in comparison to those in the Dells, but big enough to have some good stuff. The slides were fun, but by no means extreme. Teenagers and older kids/young adults may find it boring, however it was just right for us. The rides were fun and fast enough and our 6 yr was ok going down them alone. There is also a toddler play area. The only I didn't like too much were the lifeguards-they were not the most friendly. While in the toddler area one of lifeguards was telling some young children not more than two that they were splashing too much. They were clearly just playing and not bothering anyone from what I could see. There was also a small pool area, lazy river and an activity pool.

The hotel was clearly old. It had been revamped somewhat to make it workable but that was about it. The rooms were clean but once again outdated by just about every sense of the word when compared to most chains. It was back to the rooms we stayed in on family vacations when I was a kid. Not much had been changed in the room.

The hotel had a free breakfast which again was ok but nothing special. It consisted of coffee, juice, donuts, a few pastries, fruit and cereal.

So it was an alright stay and I would stay again but if your looking for something that is special or will blow you away go somewhere else.

I have stayed here two times now. First time was in the business section (recommended). Room was nice, clean and quiet. Second stay was in main building closer to the water park where there was more hallway traffic and bit more noise, but the room appeared to have been recently remodeld and had new bedding. Two minor downsides. First, the mini-fridge in the second room was too noisy, I had to unplug to sleep. Second, the hotel is large and spread out which results in longer walks from car to room. Good restaurant on-site with large selection of bottled beer. I had an excellent shrimp dinner.

We decided to spend the night here and surprise our kids (4 and 9) after a company picnic in the area. I read the bad reviews beforehand, and I was a little worried! Overall, the place is great. The waterpark is a little low key for me, and I got really bored after an hour - the kids liked it just fine. There are 2 slides you can use a raft on, and they are pretty much the EXACT same slide -one being a canoe type raft for 3 people, the other you have to bring a tube up. The body slide was good I thought. As soon as I was getting kind of scared due to the speed, it thankfully was the end. It wasn't crowded at all, but maybe because it's summer and it might be more so during the winter. We had a late dinner (about 8 p.m.) at Wildflowers, the restaurant there, and the service was really slow. We sat for several minutes before someone came over to take our drink order...and our dinner order at the same time. The drinks took a while to come and I was almost going to pass out as I was so hungry and thirsty. But our appetizer and food came quickly after that. The arcade was nice and we all enjoyed it. The rooms were average, and the bathroom looked updated and it was clean. I thought they needed to replace the mattresses (or maybe flip them) as it seemed like it sagged in the middle. As usual, the doors/walls are paper thin so anyone in the hall talking loud (and running) in the middle of the night woke me up, but that is to be expected.

Pretty good value. Upgraded to Governors Suite for a few extra dollars. Very spacious room, well kept, clean, and comfortable.

Kids enjoyed the water park. The water park is more for kids under 13, I would say. When comparing it to other parks in the ares.

Food is very good, room serivce good and prompt. Pricing on food is very reasonable, as well as the room cost.

The executive wing of the hotel is the older section, I think. The decor is more like the fancy 80's style. With wall paper, and cherry dark woods. However, the rooms are very well kept, furniture is not wobbly, carpet is newer and clean.

We had a jacuzzi tub for 2 in the bathroom, and seperate shower and toilet. All fixtures were clean and in good working order.

For an older place, their maintenance seems top notch! Good job Maintenance team.

Free internet works VERY well, and would recommend this place to business travelers.

There is a privavte pool / spa area in the executive end, so if you dont want to go to the water park, simply go to this section.

To start with the room was small, out dated and smelled like smoke.
The waterpark seemed ok but very unruly. Alot of the patrons had ghetto mentality and manerisms. The only park security to be seen were a few fifteen year old lifeguards.
When complained to the "manager" Nancy Horton, she was ver rude and unprofessional. Your better off spending your time and money somewhere else.

I had received a gift card at Christmas for an overnight stay. We stayed in the executive guest room - very large room with 2 double beds and a huge, oversized bathroom with 2-person whirlpool and separte shower, 2 sinks. Room was very spacious. Bathroom was very cool. It could have been a little cleaner. The room was very warm at night, very stuffy. We actually turned the a/c on (it was March). Beds were okay, but should have queen beds instead of double. As for the waterpark, it is nice but a little small. It has 2 tube slides, one body slide, a very small lazy river and another pool area. It is nice, but because they also allow day visitors who are not staying at the hotel, it gets VERY crowded. I can't complain too much because it was pretty much free for us, but if I had been paying I would have been upset. The hotel advertises two restaurants, but it is really one that is separated into two areas, one more standard casual dining and one more of a sports bar type atmosphere - but same menu. Restaurant is pretty pricey. Our bill for 4 of us was nearlly $100.00 - with no alcohol! Probably won't return - I would rather travel another hour north to the Dells.
