Yey! I like it
I went there on a vacation this year and loved it. The place is great. I love the workmaship on the building and the waterpark! I mean, this place is gfreat. GO THERE NEXT TIME YOU'RE IN WISCONSIN DELLS! A+++++!
Nice pool area, but a terrible hotel stay.
We have stayed at the Camelot twice during the past year (only because we had vouchers for free stays). Both times were during their off-season. While the "waterpark" area is small but nice for little kids, the hotel area leaves much to be desired! First, the Camelot turns off the heat in the rooms during offseason, so it takes a couple of hours to get the room temperature tolerable after check-in. Second, the noise from the slamming doors and hallway is HORRIBLE!!! The doors to the rooms literally SLAM when closing, and you always hear footsteps echoing in the hallways when someone walks by (due to the wood framing of the building). We have never gotten a good night of sleep at Camelot. The worst problem was when we wanted to complain to the hotel staff at 2am, because of the terrible ruckus from drunks staying in the room next door. This hotel is UNSTAFFED during the night!!!! They chain the doors leading to the lobby, and put up a sign that says the lobby is closed until 7am. There is an OFFSITE phone number that you can call in case of an emergency. To leave a hotel lobby unstaffed anywhere is inexcusable, but at a resort like the Camelot it is unthinkable. We won't be back even for free.
Excellent place for your family
My husband and I took our 7 and 3 year old on a November trip to the Camelot we had a wonderful time. The indoor pool was clean and a lot of fun for both or children and us. My husband I went the slide as much as the kids. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time which was nice its hard to watch kids in the big waterparks, this was perfect for a relaxing trip. The room was the cleanest hotel I have stayed in and the price was a steal at 45 dollars a nite. The refrigerator was a nice touch we used it a lot. The game room also was clean and a lot of fun and next to the pool was a jungle gym for the kids to have fun on.
Breakfast was not provided but there are a million resteraunts to choose from. One more thing the Camelot is only a minute from the Desert Star movie theatre which was more than you can imagine. My family and I will definetly stay at the Camelot again.
Great Place, Great Price
The Camelot is such a great place that I'm not sure that we would ever stay anywhere else. Our kids (7 and 4) just love it. And the price is always great. When we went last summer (2002), our kids talked about afterwards for nearly a year, then we went back this summer and they loved it even more. And now I see that the year end rates are really low, so we're planning a November trip as well. It's less than 3 hours from us and well worth the drive. The rooms have a fridge and a microwave, so we bring our own food and just go out once a day, which is really nice when you're in the pools all day.
I stayed at the Camelot for a week in July, 2003 and the hotel was
absolutely wonderful. I loved the indoor pool with slide. Just a hint,
don't go down it backwards. The temperature was perfect. The room was
just great, with a wonderful view (cornfields with wonderful sky). The
staff seemed to be pretty friendly, I never really saw them, just to
check in and out. The cleaning staff was very nice. I would give the
Camelot 5 stars !!!!
A Great Family Vacation Spot!
My husband and I and our two year-old daughter had a fabulous time at the Camelot Inn. Our Kingsize bed was the perfect size for the three of us (she won't sleep in her travel bed!). The room was spacious enough with the bed, a table and chairs, TV, dresser (armoir type), microwave, and refridgerator and full bathroom, hairdryer etc. The facilities were spotless and the staff wonderful. The indoor/outdoor water park was excellent for our little family. The Camelot is perfect for kids 10 and under. The indoor kiddie pool featured a castle and the outdoor one featured a dragon sprouting water. We preferred the indoor pool with it's larger slide. We held our daughter infront of us and down the slide she came squealing indelight. We really can't wait to go again.
The hotel does not provide continental breakfast, but a very cool "Denny's" is across the street serving up excellent breakfasts.
We would definitely stay at the Camelot Inn & Suites in the Wisconsin Dells again!
Great for the little ones
This is a wonderful place to stay for families with younger children.
Our 4 year old loved the castle like theme and the indoor water park was just the right size for our family. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean and very up to date with the times. We loved our vacation and are planning to go back very soon.
OUR HIDDEN LITTLE SECRET
Our family enjoyed our stay at the Camelot SOOO... much,we have been back 3XS. It was much more relaxing than the hussle and bussle of the so called big water parks. We were able to keep an eye on our little ones in the zero depth pool, while our oldest played on the big slide, while relaxing in lounge chairs with view of all our children. We actually did try big water park and even the kids were overwhelmed with the "BIG" crowds. I GUESS THE SAYING "LESS IS MORE" IS VERY FITTING AT THE CAMELOT. WE LOVED IT AND LOOK FORWARD TO COMING BACK.
We stayed in a regular double bed room and for the price we paid it was not worth it. For as new as a hotel as this is our room was not that clean. The continental breakfast literally consisted of one cake doughnut and juice. The only great thing about this place was the pools- my kids loved them. I would'nt stay here again.
Camelot is VERY neat!
Camelot is great for kids and the rooms are nice for adults and a very eye appealing plase. Looks like a castle was great the kids thought they were on an awesome trip when we were there!!!!

Susan slept well since she was tired from sleeping in the car? What? Oh well.
The dells is a beautiful resort area. It must be packed in season. We head west across I 90. The lilacs are in full bloom on huge tree like shrubs! Dirt is brown to black and freshly planted with fields already showing the life cycle of death to life. We see …
Today started early for me. I got up at 6:30 so I could attend the 8 am church service at Portage United Methodist Church. I did this because the group was traveling to Wisconsin Dells for brunch at one of the golf clubs. Rich & Sue Milgrom, who used to live in the area, recommended we eat there and we were to leave here at 9:15, so off to church I went. I thought there were a lot of people there for so early a service. The church is very nice ...
... we ate it.
It was a very nice visit with all of them, although it was too short, as usual. The young Joneses didn't want to hang out with the old folks for very long and the older Joneses have two dogs at home they had to get back to, but we talked about lots of things including mom & dad. Thanks to Kris, we even SKYPEd with mom & dad for a bit, even though something happened and we couldn't see them for a bit. I say ...
... but no. It is an individual tour given by one of the owners and it lasted 2 hours!! Bob wasn't sure he wanted to take the tour, but actually the 2 hours went by quickly. The woman who gave the tour had many stories to go along with everything she showed us. They have some very interesting stuff like the official final transcript from the Nuremberg trials. They have a Holocaust Room with lots of very disturbing pictures and ...
We decided not to go to Baraboo today. We looked it up on the net and since basically it is a circus show, we decided we didn't want to see it, besides, it cost $18 per person. Granted a couple of the things (how they train the elephants and looking at old circus wagons) sounded good, but not the rest of it. I'm sure if we had children with us we would have gone, but we didn't want to watch them train for their tour this ...
