Nice clean rooms. We choose to forgo the maid service and take the extra hour of checkout time. The pool and hot tub areas are in need of some TLC but kids loved it and we had fun too. Not much for deep water but there are 2 hot tubs, one for adults and one for kids. Great arcade. We... More

We came with our 10 & 7 yr old boys, they had fun at the waterpark, but by even their admission, it was dirty and needed more lighting. The hot tub has areas where it's breaking down and feels like sand. The lifeguards were barely engaged. The rooms...at $149- $179/night. I have had FAR nicer. The mattresses felt like they... More

Took the kids for a visit and they had a great time. Even in the middle of summer, however, the water seemed a bit chilly. The slides were lots of fun and unique. There are 4 hot tubes and a snack bar also. The snack bar closes about 30 minutes before the waterpark does. Identifying a lifeguard was a bit... More

The hotel is not overpriced, but the water park is. The admission is high for the few attactions you can use. Children 10 and under will like the activities, but older kids will bore easily. Ask for a river view on the top floor for a view of the Mississippi.

Save your money. This water park is smaller then it looks in pictures. High energy children and children 11and up will get bored pretty fast. We were out of there in just 2 1/2 hours. Not worth spending nearly $70. People brought in food and drinks. (Just no glass) we might of stayed longer if we did that. Although not... More

We stayed here as a part of the Twilight Riverboat Cruise package. I probably wouldn't ordinarily stay here as waterparks ceased to interest me a long time ago. The rooms were very nice and equipped with fridge microwave and a coffee pot. and an iron and ironing board (do people still iron on vacation). The wifi was crappy and quit... More

Grand Harbor Resort was a great place to stay. The hotel staff is very friendly, the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. Our room had a view of the Mississippi River. It was fun watching the boats and barges travel down the river. Grand Harbor has a nice water park for younger kids but admission was not included which... More

We were here years ago with our own kids and all the levers, pulleys, and buckets worked. This time here with nephews and most don't work. Lots of things rusted. Boys had a great time but we were disappointed to see the repairs needed.
