Had a wonderful time. My Husband and I took our two girls (5 and 1.5). Perfect size everything for them. Beautiful views, very responsive staff, reasonable price. Had great activities for the kids... face painting, cookie decorating, and pirate ship making. Will come back!

My family stayed over spring break. Rooms were nice, my kids are 6 and 2 and the water park was the perfect size for them. We plan on coming back.

We came here, as we were actually visiting Galena for their Luminaria event which was beautiful btw in December. The waterpark gave our children a nice time to work off their energy. Parking was free. They give you a key card. We had a corner...More

It was ok and by that I mean average. It could be better kept as it looks kind of run down. The rooms are average; nothing special.

Hotel is hugely overpriced for value. 126.00 per night and doesn't even include the pool or a simple breakfast. Have to pay extra for the water park. Not impressed at all. Front desk staff was fantastic, but won't be staying here again.

I was attending a conference at the Grand River Center which is attached to Grand Harbor Resort via skywalk. I heard that the riverview rooms were nice. The rooms are pretty economical and traditional, but the access to the Riverwalk, Grand River Center, and waterpark...More

We went to Grand Harbor because we had a wedding next door to attend. We were not there for the waterpark just the convenience of the location. Our view of the Mississippi River Walk from our room was spectacular. Our room location was horrible. We...More

I am not sure because I did not use the waterpark at all when I stayed there. I do know they have "package" deals where you get a room and waterpark access all in one.

I agree...not cold,but not really warm either. A rash guard will help to keep you warm. I got a bit chilly after about 1 hour.
