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. I went to the front desk and she's like yeh I know we are working on it, with an attitude. We ended up ordering pizza and eating in the lobby because it was pitched black in the...

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.

Excellent rustic lobby with log walls and stone fireplaces. Fish and deer trophies line a log wall. Super continental breakfast in the lobby area. The Pub also serves great food and drinks. Very friendly waitresses with just the right amount of attention not hovering. Food done to absolute perfection..

We stayed at The Waters for our Christmas holiday. Outstanding customer service. Very prompt answering requests. Smiles from every employee and each one asked if we needed anything. Rooms were very clean and spacious. The beds are so comfortable! Hotel is always clean. Love the patio/balcony. Breakfast had a great variety with a fire going in the breakfast area. And...

This was my family's second time staying here.. The rooms and the rest of the hotel are very clean. I used to be a housekeeper, so I'm picky about a clean room. This place has passed the test both times. The staff I have encountered we're friendly and helpful. I will definitely visit again, and recommend you do too.
