Reviewed 27 March 2016

As many who have traveled to smaller towns in the Northwoods and elsewhere discover, you can often forget about finding nameplates from groups the Hilton, IHG, Starwood or Marriott when you're looking for a place to stay. The Waters of Minocqua offers a great alternative for those who appreciate decent standards and adds the unusual amenity of a water park...

I found this gem of a resort through Groupon. From the moment we arrived to when we left my family of 5 and friends were greeted by helpful friendly staff, Brian, Cheri, our house keeper, and Dena. These people were all very accommodating, from the delicious drinks made, delicious food in their pub restaurant and snacks in the water park,...

It all depends on the price you pay. I went for a business trip, so I have no clue what it cost. Room was very clean, and the staff was quite helpful. Nothing I would be excited about going to. The reason its a four instead of three, I really value a clean room over everything. Oh, and the shower...

I chose The Waters based on location, price and reviews from others on TripAdvisor. There were no issues - check in was quick & easy, staff was pleasant enough. Saying they have a "waterpark" is a bit of an overstatement - indoors there are 3 small, separate pools - one for very young children which is no more than 2...

1st time visitor. Overall experience was very good. Great value for the stay. The kids enjoyed the water park. It wasn't a very large water park overall, but with kids ages 5 and 2, it was perfect for them. Just enough to keep the occupied and enjoying themselves. The rooms were quite comfortable and relaxing. The game room was small...

My niece is always asking to come back here the swim in their pool. There are usually other kids there, and its free too! Can beat a great review from a 4 year old :) They also have a game room and is a fun distraction, sort of like a little chuck-e-cheese.

Nice hotel. Be aware that this is for sure a kids hotel! If we ever stay again i would request to be on the 3rd floor. All we heard all day/night was kids running up and down the halls. I don't see this as the hotel's fault, rather inconsiderate parents that let their kids scream and run around at all...

This was our first visit to The Waters. It had been recommended and we decided to give it try and truly enjoyed our stay. The facility had everything. It was a very busy weekend and yet still enjoyed all areas. The outdoor hot tub was wonderful to relax in after a day of ice fishing and the outdoor individual decks...

I was very happy with this hotel. Not only were the rooms clean, but the whole place overall was. The staff was very friendly too. There was a major commotion in the middle of the evening and I was very happy how the staff handled it.
