Thank goodness my credit card didn't work when charging for a room online last night. We had planned a day trip up to the dells and spent the entire day at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells..we had an AWESOME time, just like every single trip I have ever had there! We were planning to drive home but there was...

We stay at the Polynesian several times each year for low-key waterpark weekend getaways. Since this hotel only has a small indoor waterpark and a small outdoor park crowds are usually much less than at the bigger resorts. Rooms are a bit dated, but usually decent. This time we had more issues with our room that took away from our...

If you are stuck in the 1980's you'll love this property. The problem is that it fell into foreclosure and no updates have been done for quite a while. But, the good news is that a new group has recently purchased the property and have plans for a major upgrade.

This place is ok and our grandkids did enjoy them selfs. It is certainly old and outdated and in disrepair. Most of the people who work by the pool can't understand English. The room is old outdated and really not to clean. The beds are very uncomfortable. It's set up for very young kids mostly. Not much for thrill seekers....

One night with my husband and two kids the photos were very misleading as to the condition of the park. Crumbling cement, broken areas, dirty water, no towels out for pool use, ants in our room and the staff was not interested in helping the guests. Save your money and go somewhere else like a KOA.

We stayed in a two bedroom suite. The wallpapers in the bathroom was peeling, there's a chunk in the carpet that was missing, the cover sheets on the beds were very outdated and the end tables were dusty. The lifeguards spent all their time looking at girls in bikinis and didn't really pay close attention to the kids. No complaints...

There were pools open in the morning, but by the afternoon both indoor and outdoor water parks had been closed. The pools we were able to go into in the morning had many bugs floating in them and were dirty with sand. No restaurants or bar areas were open. The rooms are outdated and the bathroom fixtures were rusty. We...

I wouldn't recommend this place to family and friends unless they are willing to spend less for a bare minimum. For us the hotel was everything we needed but no frills of any kind. There is no continental breakfast, just in case your wondering. The room had outdated decor that was in poor shape. The hair dryer only worked for...

I was disappointed when we arrived and our room was OLD looking, mismatch furniture and most important the screen door would not lock so they had to bring a board to place on bottom of door so no one could break in, mold in bathrooms and very dirty toilets, disgusting is the best word.

We had a great stay in a two bedroom suite (room 308). All the rooms were clean. My daughters (18 months and 5 years old) both had a blast in the pools. Great place for families with little kids to stay. If you have older kids, you might want to look else where. There are not a lot of indoor...
