It appears that they do not provide room service during the off-season, even if the rooms are occupied. So people throw their nasty wet towels out in the hall for someone to pick up. Yes. Not pleasant for anyone. One ice machine on our floor was missing; the other out of order. The vending machine was out of order. The...

Cecile thank you for your review. We will continue to renovate and upgrade the property. I wish you had the opportunity to stay in our featured new one bedroom condos with a living room and fully equipped kitchenette. This is the direction the property is heading. Per feedback from our guests and surrounding communities the Polynesian is working hard to...

We really enjoyed our renovated hotel suite. It included a separate living room area for our 18 month old son, a kitchenette with dishes provided, and a nice separate room for my husband and I to relax. The waterpark could use some more renovations as some areas are really out dated or in need of maintenance. Overall it was a...

Booked this online and have been here once many years ago and thought to give it a try again. Check-in: it was ok (online it shows that the hotel had a sauna) wanted to make sure it was correct. I asked the lady who checked me in if they had a sauna, said she didnt know and if they did...

We had four rooms. All of them smelled moldy. One room the toilet didn't work. One room the sink didn't drain. One room didn't have sheets for the pull out couch. The hot tub had so much chlorine in it you couldn't even sit on the side of it without your eyes burning. Would never stay here again....yuck.

Stayed here over Labor Day weekend. This is an older motel/hotel in the process of being updated. Our room was nicely renovated with king bed, walk-in shower, and kitchenette with full size refrig. table with 4 chairs. Sofa bed is only upholstered furniture in TV area. Some what sparse feeling. Grand kids aged 2-10 enjoyed the water park features. Not...

The hotel was clean and quiet. The pool, hot tub and sauna were clean. The rate was unbeatable and the staff was courteous. Easy access from the highway. Plenty of places to eat in the immediate area.

I traveled with my two-year-old and three-year-old over Labor Day weekend. There are 5 splash/pads pools that are appropriate for toddlers. 3 outdoor toddler pools (1 with slides, 1 with swings, 1 just water features) 2 indoor (1 with taller slides, 1 with simple frog slide). It was enough to keep them entertained and they had a lot of fun....

Thank you Polynesian for a relaxing stay. Arrived and Kevin was very welcoming, the renovated rooms are well appointed and the lobby looks amazing since my last visit. The resort is under construction and is making great strides. My family enjoyed the slides, arcade and the visit in the downtown Dells.

We have stayed there before and we had a chance to go back and once again we enjoyed the stay at the polynesian. Clean rooms, helpful staff, and it has two lazy rivers. One inside and one outside. Price was right for last minute trip. Shopping and eaterty are close by too.

I paid extra to stay in the 'refurnished' side of the resort, but they gave us a terrible room with old bedding and in general everything was low quality, thin sheets, thin towels, drapes falling from rod... also the room was to close to an exit and the window so close to the highway and parking that we could hear...
