We chose this area because it was much cheaper than staying in the Wisconsin dells. We had not been here before. There were a few issues but mostly, we had a good time. Our room was double booked and many more seats are needed in the waterpark. There was no where to set our

Took my kids here over the weekend for the indoor water park. Our hotel room had gunk on the sinks in the bathroom and we found beer cans and toys under the bed. The arcade room is a complete rip off which is no fun with young kids! .75 for two tickets on most games=tootsie roll

Response from sgeisz, General Manager at Grand Harbor Resort and Waterpark

Dear Chicago traveler35, Thank you for your review. I apologize that we did not meet your expectations. Please call me directly at 563-690-3233 to further discuss. We currently do not charge extra for balcony rooms, as you are correct they are not balcony rooms, they are rooms with sliding glass doors. However those rooms are larger than our standard rooms which is where the extra rate comes from. Also our hotel is 100% smoke free so those rooms would not accommodate any smoking as well. Thank you again for your feedback.

Do you have to bring your own floaties? Or are floaties/tubes available?
You can bring your own floaties but they do have intertubes available to use for free. The tubes are not for little ones. I hope you have fun!

Can you just get tickets to the waterpark and not stay at the hotel?

You can get your waterpark passes before checkin. I think checkin is 3 or 4 but we went to the waterpark at 1. You can also use the waterpark the whole day after you checkout.
