Alakai Hotel and Suites
Ranked #24 of 75 Hotels in Wisconsin Dells
Reviewed 20 August 2006

I asked the front desk if they had any military rates since I was on my first vacation from Iraq in three years. She said they did not. I arrived at 2am and the check-out time was 10:30am. The $128 I paid for a King room was way over-priced to the point of gouging. The ice machine is clear down around the corner from the desk. So I had to walk back down from Building B just to get ice. It would be nice if they told you there was no ice machine in the outbuilding. For that price they should provide you with bags of it. The room door had such a large cap that the hall light shined in all night keeping us awake. The pay per view green power light is also annoying. The toilet ran all night long like a Chinese Water Torture due to a faulty ballcock. We didn't even get a chance to use the pool or any amenities but it looked like they were pretty meager. Some of the hotels will throw in a ride on the Wisconsin Ducks for the same price. The clerk had her 5-year old daughter up manning the desk at 2am then she'd awake mom when a customer came in.

This was a great place to stay, especially if you have kids. The price is right, our children loved the waterpark as it is perfect for children under 8. The entire hotel, including our room was exceptionally clean. We will definately be back.

We stayed at the Alakai for 2 nights and found it extremely clean and the people were very nice. We went to Noah's Ark, which was close by and did all of the waterslides and then went back to the motel for a nice swim and a perfect hot tub. The water of both was perfect, hot tub not too hot and the pools were not too cold. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it! The price was awesome! I would definitely stay there again!

We stayed there this past weekend and the room was large and clean, however the female staff peron working the front desk was not very polite and needs a lesson in customer service.

We stayed for two nights last weekend. The pools were much smaller than they appear on the website pictures and the water was too cold to be comfortable. We had problems with just about every game and vending machine we tried there...which got frustrating. Overall we were disappointed. Didn't get much for the $88 a night price. No coffee maker, no hairdryer, no decent game area for the kids. Spent the same price (or less) at other Dells hotels in the past and liked them so much better. Would recommend Grand Marquis, Copa Cabana, Atlantis --or watch for the $99 specials at Wilderness or Treasure Island. Much more like a vacation at those places. Alakai wasn't terrible, just nothing special.

We loved our stay at the Alakai. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff was excellent, polite, and friendly. The kids (ages 6-10) absolutely adored the indoor pool and play area. It was their favorite part about our vacation. I would definitely recommend the Alakai to anyone planning a trip to Wisconsin Dells. The hotel is also convenient to all the surrounding attractions while still being in a quiet part of the town. It was a great place to come "home" to and get some rest. Wish we could have stayed longer.

The staff advertised it as a brand new hotel.We stayed there on 4/7/04 - I don't think it was "brand new HOTEL". Average - comparable to more to an Inn...Reasonable rate. They added $10 for each kids.That was ridiculous.
