Room was just ok - older beds and not fancy at all - bathroom seemed pretty dated. Clean, decent size, great view of the Mississippi. The best part of this hotel by far is the location and the grounds.

The room was at a very decent price. Very well located. Could visit many attractions without having to drive around a lot. They cut a discount if you stay there and visit the museum which is located right next to the hotel. Very family friendly. The breakfast buffet on the weekends is fairly priced as well and had a lot...

The hotel was nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. Staff was friendly. The only thing I didn't like was there was no complimentary breakfast. There is a restaurant on site that serves excellent food. Would stay there again.

Waterpark was small. Kept younger kids entertained. Hotel room was unimpressive especially for the price. Would probably not stay again. Go to the Wisconsin Dells. More bag for your buck... And for the same price!

I would have given more stars, but the second night was awful. There were prom kids staying and they were up past midnight. They were yelling, swearing, and drinking. I did call the front desk twice who did get them to be quiet around 1230 am. I was also refunded for that night, which was great. I just don't understand...

We stayed here a long time ago but it was clean and fun. Adults could go to casino and parents with little ones went to water park. Had fun! We stayed here years ago but I can only go back to June 2016.

If a good night sleep is important to you, this was possibly the best bed and pillows that I have used while traveling. The river walk in the late evening was quite and peaceful, great way to recharge for the next day of meetings. Access to the restaurant from within the building was nice.

My family, party of 6, was there to celebrate a birthday and Mother's Day. Between the rooms and additional charge to use the water park I paid $600 for 2 nights. VERY pricey but I justified it for the special occasions. ONLY chose it because of the water park. The second night we were all at the water park along...

Disappointed with hotel's demand to place room on credit card rather than take currency. First impression of room was that a pillow fight had just taken place since most every lamp shade was crooked. Also, found that excessive use of air freshener tends to mask over cleaning practices. A clean room will indeed smell clean.

“Too much air deodorizer...for a non-smoking facility...could almost choke when walking into the room. Clean rooms smell clean...don't try to mask over it! When people ask to pay by cash...rather than have it charged to a credit card...don't give some lame story that it's our policy just because some people STOLE from Tony Roma's a meal. When have you ever charged anything to your hotel room without verification that you were actually staying at the hotel and at a specific room? Hotel room keys don't have the room number on it like the old days...so, in my humble opinion...this is indeed a poor excuse for a resort to take advantage of the GUEST.”

“Everything in room needs to be updated. Was like staying at Goodwill. Not clean. Will never come back. Stayed to check it out to see if I would bring my grand children. Definitely no happening. Tell everyone I know the same thing”
