“Great hotel for families with young children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

My wife and I booked a two-night stay at the Alakai for the middle of the week in July of 2014. The rooms were reasonably priced for the Dells, about $120/night, and they included Noah' Ark passes for each day of your stay. We wanted something with a small water park that our 20 month old son could enjoy, and this was perfect. The indoor pool area features a pool with two slides, a standard pools, a whirlpool, and a sauna. Our son absolutely loved the indoor water slides. The outdoor pool also has slides but we didn't use it as it was unseasonably cool during our stay.

The hotel was very clean, the room, the lobby, the halls, everything. The staff was very friendly and accommodating to whatever we needed. We got to check in a couple hours early which was nice. The beds were a little uncomfortable, which is the only reason I give it a 4/5 instead of a 5/5. The WiFi was also a bit spotty at times would be the only other negative that I could find. Our room had a flat screen TV, fridge, and microwave. We definitely would stay here again and were very happy with the service that we had while we were here.

We decided on a last minute long weekend to Wisconsin Dells. After searching for a hotel to stay at that offered free Noah's Ark passes, I came across Alakai. This hotel is located within walking distance of several restaurants, activities and shopping (although a walking path to those places would be nice instead of relying on the roadways). It is located about 1 1/2 miles from Noah's Ark.

The hotel is extremely clean, in fact I will go as far as saying it is cleaner than any highly rated hotel or resort I have ever stayed. The front desk staff is very friendly, always greeting you when you walked in. The indoor pool area has a play area for smaller kids and a decent size regular pool for older kids and a hot tub. Definitely a great place for families, especially families with younger kids - the pool accomodations are perfect for them. The room included a small fridge and microwave as well as an extra sink.

The only downside was that the beds were a bit uncomfortable, we could feel the springs but the cleanliness overshadowed that negative.

We will definitely stay here again.

Stayed here this past weekend with my family. Couldn't have made a better choice! This is by far the best value in the Dells. We've stayed everywhere and this place is super clean and a great Family hotel. AND they give you waterpark passes too! Why spend $300 on a below average room at one of the big hotels....stay here and have more money to enjoy yourselves! Plus it's a Family owned business...how great is that! Give them a try...you'll be happy you did!

My wife and I spent a Monday and Tuesday night here. The hotel is very clean and it was quiet (perhaps due to it being early in the week). We were given coupons when we checked in for local attractions, dining and shopping. The hotel staff was very pleasant and polite. Our room had a mini-fridge and an older microwave in it. My wife thought that the mattresses were old and were not comfortable for her, I slept well. The pool area was nice and there is a small indoor waterpark that would be good if you have young children. There is also an outdoor waterpark / pool area, again designed for younger children. The indoor whirlpool was hot and bubbly. The hotel decor may be a little outdated, but it is kept very clean. I have stayed at newer and updated hotels that were not as clean as this one. My only complaint is that the soda machines were out of a lot of product - no Pepsi, Mt. Dew that expired last month, and I got the last two A&W's. We would definitely stay here again.

Spent the weekend with my daughter and granddaughter. Perfect hotel. Every where we went in the hotel it was very clean. Outside was beautiful with all the flowers in the planters. The indoor water park is perfect for small children. The management was so accomodating to every request we had, even looking for coupons for us. Rooms are set far back fro the road so the rooms are very quiet. Hotel is close to most of the attractions. We're going back in August.

My family (3 year old and 1 year old) spent a few nights at this waterpark. We did spend the extra money on the suite which included a separate bedroom, couch, TV, refrigerator, and microwave. We spent the majority of our time in the indoor waterpark since the outdoor was still not open. For our kids, it was the perfect size offering 2 water slides. There was a large adult pool that was nice and warm.

I indicate bare essential because there was no continental breakfast included and the wifi internet only worked in the lobby and didn't reach our room very well (spotty at best). the checkout time was 10:30 a.m. I asked for a later checkout so that our kids could enjoy the waterpark a bit more. We were denied the late checkout.

The location was awesome and had everything within walking distance (multiple quality restaurants, starbucks, fast food, mall..etc

We come to the Dells several times a year and ALWAYS stay here. The rooms are extremely clean, front desk very friendly, pool is large and always clean, free coffee in the morning. If you are looking for a reasonable place to stay you found it! Would not stay anywhere else!
