The staff was very friendly. Hotel was in decent shape but dated in many areas. Made reservations for a wedding but the rate came up incorrect. Was told rate on website was a mistake and that they would not honor rate. They would not discount but just said we need to cancel or pay the higher rate. Paid the higher...

Thank you for your feedback. I'd like to apologize for the rate confusion, as we most certainly would have honored the rate had it been brought to our attention. Our resort fee is industry standard and covers some of the amenities such as Wi-Fi and free parking for our guests. At $3.50, we try to keep costs low for our...

Enjoyed our 2 night stay in early Oct. Room was clean and beds very comfortable. Fireplace in the room was a nice addition. Bathroom could use an update. Outdated shower, unable to adjust shower spray, height of toilet and sink very low and limited counter space. Small microwave took up additional space on sink/counter outside of bathroom. Hotel built into...

This is a comfortable hotel on the outskirts of Minocqua. The decor is rather dated but the actual accomodations were quite comfortable. The rooms were clean and well maintained. My only complaint was the lack of a sound barrier to the shower above our room. The breakfast that was included was very minimal and reminded me of a less expensive...

We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were really clean and there's a lot to do here. We came for a birthday celebration and it was perfect. We miss breakfast but looked cool making your own waffles. We would love to come back

Saw reviews of The Waters while traveling northern WI. We stopped by and was greeted by friendly staff. We decided to stay and was extremely when we opened the door to our room and saw how spacious it was. Very clean and roomy. Found our beds to be extremely comfortable.

This is our 2nd stay at the hotel. Rooms are huge. The whole entrance area and lobby are huge. If you want to relax and read, there are plenty of places to sit. The continental breakfast is okay. I left feeling full. Food is available until 10 am. The pool area is fantastic. Several indoor and outdoor pools. Perfect for...

The hotel is like a lodge. It was very clean and the rooms were very nice. I would give 5 stars for that. Breakfast was included, but it wasn't what I expected. When for example yogurt was gone, 6 were brought out and gone immediately. No one was really on top to make sure enough cups, napkins, food. I would...

There were so many things that went wrong I really don't know where to start ... First, let me say that I understand it must be difficult to find quality, competent staff. That being said, virtually ALL of the employees I encountered during my stay were LAZY, unmotivated, and couldn't care in the least. The lifeguards on duty epitomized this...
