This water park resort and hotel was renovated in early 2018 with updates to guest suites, additions to the entertainment features, new restaurants (and bars for the adults). The hotel's Northwoods-style suites all feature separate living areas, flat-panel TVs, microwaves, minifridges and coffee makers. Wi-Fi, parking and towel services are included with the nightly resort fee. 

All lodge guests receive water park wristbands (the park is restricted to guests only), and even though check-in is at 4 p.m., you can arrive as early as 1 p.m. to hit the pool. The indoor water park includes multiple pools, waterslides, a high-speed bodyboard simulator and a special "splash cinema" experience. 

There are also organized kids activities before the park opens, at lunchtime, a daily storytime and a nightly Northwoods Friends show. If the kids get tired of swimming, there's tons of entertainment on dry land -- the resort houses a climbing wall, a mini-bowling alley, a ropes course and an arcade (additional fees apply).

Dining is mostly casual, from pizza and pasta to daily buffet selections to burgers, fries and chicken fingers (and sundaes for dessert). The hotel's Barnwood restaurant gives parents more upscale small-plate options along with craft beers and cocktails. Don't forget to schedule a nightly Wine Down service -- parents can request a bottle of wine and a small treat to be delivered to the suite after the kids are in bed.

The hotel is fine, 3 of the 5 slides were closed due to cold temps so my kids were disappointed. We are unlikely to return.

The travelzoo deal was to include late check out but the hotel did not have record of this. They said it was booked thru Expedia and did not include late check-out unless I wanted to pay an additional $50. So it altered our whole experience since we were basically hurried out of our room and unprepared.

Most things were great! There was some confusion about the closing time and opening time for the pools both days. I still have not received my receipt via email... I checked out yesterday afternoon.
