We stayed August 15-20, 2018. We've been traveling to Minocqua at least once a year for the past 20 or so years to visit friends in the area, but this was our first time staying at The Waters. We were worried at first because our room was right by the stairs/elevator and close to the arcade and waterpark. But we had no problems with noise or bothersome people. The hotel is well-maintained, clean and comfortable. Housekeeping did a great job during our 5 night stay. The pool and hot tub were mostly enjoyable and the slides were pretty fun. But don't expect a waterpark like in the Dells. There are only 2 slides and are only open when lifeguards are on duty. They have basketball hoops set up in the pools and the little kids area looked like fun. Bad point #1 was parents didn't always supervise their children and kids were usually in the hot tub. That didn't make it relaxing for us older folks. Bad point #2 was the exercise room. Only a treadmill, a bike and a stepper and they weren't in the best of condition. We walked the 1.2 miles in to town each morning for exercise. The only other drawback was their breakfast. Wish they offered scrambled eggs and a better selection of fruit.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel.More
