Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Marquis Waterpark Hotel & Suites Wisconsin Dells
It's the best hotel in it's catergory and the best one I've been to so far. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Both pools are great and so's the mini-waterpark. I've been going ever since I was 4, I'm 10 and I've been there ten times because we went in spring and winter once. All the other times we went in summer. I would have given it an excellent rating, but the arcade should be up-dated and better taken care of [I'd recomend getting the Shrek2 game].
Great place to stay with small children
We stayed at the Grand Marquis on March 14th, 2004 and had a wonderful time. We have two small children, ages 2 & 3 and the pool and waterpark were perfect for them. The rooms were very clean and the staff was was friendly. We will come back again in the future.
This was the best stay we have had in the dells..the pools were very nice and warm and clean..our housekeeper was a very hard working person..rooms are also excellent in cleanliness..the front desk personell was very customer friendly..(hard to find these days) would recommend this hotel to anyone anytime
Rude, dirty, broken, Awful!!!!!!
I was stuck in the elevator - the phone didn't work to call for help.
The pool area wasn't cleaned from the night before. The toilets backed up all over the floor - we were given towels to clean it up ourselves!
A little boy puked on the floor and the mother was yelled at to clean it up herself rather than attend to her child! The phones in our rooms were broken and couldn't call outside of the hotel. People were rude and acted put-out by everything. Although the size of the pool was nice for my small children, I will find another place to go next time!!!!
Don't risk a weekend here!!!!
This hotel is the worst in the Wisconsin Dells.
The Grand Marquis has the worst hotel service in the industry. I was very unhappy with my stay within the first hour. I alerted the front desk staff of my concerns and they were very rude and non accomodating.
Please beware of this hotel.
Great stay at the Grand Marquis
Grand Marquis was a great hotel for my family and friends. We brought along two 4 year olds and a six year old, and the waterpark was the perfect size for them. Clean, and well maintained. A very good hotel!
Great Vacation Place!!!
We've been to the Grand Marquis three times - and LOVE it!!! We actually went there for our 10 year anniversary - and took our two children . . . it was perfect! It has two hot tubs - right next to the pool - close enough to watch the kids - but "romantic" enough too! They even dim the lights at night in the main pool/jacuzzi area!
The water park is smaller than some, but SO nice and so much fun - but even the adults can use the slides. It doesn't look like much from the outside - but inside it is elegant, VERY clean and in the off-season has very affordable prices! We love it!
A great place for a great price
The cleanest hotel I"ve ever been in!!! Perfect for small children and very affordable!
Great for small children!!
We have a 2 1/2 yr old and a 10 month old, and the indoor waterpark was perfect for them. The waterpark has zero entry and never gets deeper than a foot and half. The slides are small, perfect for tiny tots. The indoor pool area has a small wading pool, perfect for our infant. This is a great place to bring your small children.
Pretty Nice Place
I went there two years ago in the early Spring, it was a nice hotel, sort of plain as Wisconsin Dells vacation hotels go, but had enough stuff to make it worth staying there. I was with my two kids, they really enjoyed the pool and the little water park. It was just right for days when we didn't go to a big water park, enough stuff to entertain them and burn some energy. No restaurant, though there was one right next door. Great location, main drag and near the big water parks, short drive to "downtown"

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 ...
... Kris because earlier I thought my laptop was dead. This morning I turned it on to read my email and after about 2 minutes, the screen went black. the lights went out and absolutely nothing else happened. Kris said hers does that sometimes and she takes out the battery and the computer resets itself and starts to work. So I removed the battery for several seconds, put it back in and lo and behold, it is working again. I didn't think about ...
... 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 are going to use disposable dishes (OH THE HORRORS!!). So I had to buy some plates. We already had bowls and cups, but I draw the line at plastic utensils!! We'll just have to be careful when we have to cut something.
Tonight we started looking for a couple of new parks. Since the gov canceled us, it left us with 2 weeks to fill. We looked to extend our stay at Sam Rayburn Lake, but it was not available, so ...
... from that era that is still on it's original foundation. The lady who gave the tour was very knowledgeable, but very windy. The tour lasted about 90 minutes. Bob eventually gave up on it. But he is a trooper and just sat there waiting for me. The house was occupied by a couple who eventually became the grandparents of Juliet Gordon Low, founder of the Girl Scouts. Another place we attempted to visit is the Surgeons House ...
