The lobby is very welcoming and nicely done with rustic decor. There is a little remodeling going on toward the back of the lobby though. We booked our stay though Groupon and check in was a breeze. There are 3 levels to the hotel. The lobby is on the main level, the pool and arcade are on the exposed lower...

UPDATED REVIEW: Booked a room at the Waters on Groupon for a quick getaway with my boyfriend. I booked this particular hotel because of the nice pools and hot tub area. Upon arrival we noticed that the lobby was absolutely packed. We patiently waited in line to check in only to be told that our reservation was for two weeks...

Went for a small spring break 2-night stay. My kids had a great time and we enjoyed sitting in the whirlpool that you could walk thru to the outside. Very cool! Pub had a great food and service. AND Starbucks in the gift shop was a PLUS! :-)

Came down with 3 kids for a birthday getaway. Room was dirty upon arrival. Complained and got a blank stare from guy at front desk. Went to water park. Slides not open at 1pm on Saturday. What?! This is what we are paying for. One lonely lifeguard and he was less then enthused with his job. Once they opened the...

Came down to the waters' waterpark because of spring break.l at about 11 am. I'd say about 25-30 people were using the waterpark and no lifeguard. There is a sign saying that parents are responsible. Not sure how legal that is but whatever, I watch my son carefully. There was a mom letting her 1 year old, barely walking son...

A friend and I went to the Waters to use the water park for the day and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. There was a bit of construction going on in the lobby but they were very respectful of where we were walking and it didn't effect our time there at all. Two thumbs up from this gal!

This is a nicely appointed property. The basic premise of The Waters is to be a fun place for kids with many swim themes. Problem is, I came for an overnight stay not knowing this. Noisy, kids running everywhere and a food fight complimentary breakfast buffet, with food items running out or being fingered by kids. It was a $119...

The floors were disgusting, the hair dryer didn't work. The power went out 2 times that night and they weren't nice about it.

Brought my wife up to Minocqua as a Valentines date. Was not disappointed. Great customer service & accommodations. They went over & beyond my expectations with helping me surprise my wife. Rooms are very well kept as are the entire hotel. Very impressed.
