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... More

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... More

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.

The Waters is great place to stay and relax for young and old. It has an indoor water park that has one of the fastest slides around.

Our children have always loved staying at the waters, but I'm not sure we will be returning. Our first trip years ago was wonderful this time not so much.

While the room itself was not very impressive, the mattress was amazing! My husband and I both said that we've never slept on a more comfortable bed before. Otherwise, the room was decent and clean. The lobby is what I expected and fitting for the setting. Breakfast was very basic so we headed to Paul Bunyan's Cook Shanty :-) The... More

Upon opening the door, to our room, we were not hit in the face with the normally pungent aroma of a typical stale hotel room. Instead, my nose was greeted kindly with the freshness of new wooden furniture. The sheets and towels were bright and white. Bathroom spotless. Beds looked crisp and welcoming but were a bit too soft to... More
