Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cate23 Highly recommend
We stayed for one night on a Saturday. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, the hotel was clean and quiet (I have never stayed somewhere that was quieter at night - ever). The waterpark was busy but not too busy. We had a family fun package in a bunk bed room, it was a great deal and a great experience, we've already recommended several times, we will for sure go back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gret AAAA+ customer service
We stayed 11/30/2013. The rooms, lobby, waterpark and restaurants were spotless. The customer service, from housekeeping to management was outstanding. We arrived early and were checked into our room within a half hour. Becca, at the front desk was A+ with checking us in and answering all questions and concerns we had. The next day we were given a late checkout and when I mentioned it to our housekeeper ( I think her name was Kim) She said "no problem and if there's anything you need let me know" I have never experienced such great customer service from a housekeeper. There was also a housekeeping supervisor who was very nice.
Every year around this time, I take my daughters and grandchildren to Wisconsin Dells. This year we changed our plans and I'm so glad we did. We will be staying at the Holiday Inn Maple Grove every year from now on. Thanks to all the staff, you're AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gretchen Bye

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CaptainDownPillow would have had a 5 Star
Terrific room for the price. Only downfall was half size pillows that were like sleeping on a sponge. If you stay at another minneapolis based hotel chain you'll find they use down pillows which really make a sleep difference. The shower head was the best I've ever experienced at a hotel. Normally they have almost no water pressure but this one felt like a fire hose.

Great location close to everything in Maple Grove...would highly recommend. Only downfall was my 5 year old son was bummed he didn't meet the height requirement of 48 inches to go on the big slides at the water park.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nancydpm Awesome room and decor.
I stay at this Holiday Inn for work, it's worth the extra 15 minutes because the room is awesome. The gym is fairly a good size, the food is great, and the decor is beautiful, reminds me of Las Vegas.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NDVikingsfan Clean and great location!
We stayed for two nights and everything was awesome. The pool does not have a "deep end" but my daughter loved the slides and the floating rocks to play on. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely come back on our next trip to the Minneapolis area!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 My home away from home
what can I say. I been staying here since I have been coming to our Corp. office.
Staff is awesome always welcoming me when I arrive. I have been in this hotel for a total of a month out of the last 3 months of travel and it feels like my home away from home. If you need anything you ask. if they do not have it right then and there they see that someone will get it to you. The only reason I gave the sleep quality a 4 out of 5 is due to the kids running around when the pool is open on the weekends. That isn't the hotels fault but they do pretty good with them :-) The reason for the only con is when I stay a week at a time and the recognition is 2 waters and 1 drink coupon for the week as where other hotel brands tend to give members of the reward programs a few more perks. This is in no way a deterrent for me not to stay there as the STAFF are TOP NOTCH.
I cant wait till I get back out there in December as it will be like visiting family. Less the cold weather :-)

Perfect hotel for business travel! The room was clean and comfortable. The lounge was great although the food could be a bit better. Short walk to other restaurants and shopping.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guitarmanb4u Shower head issues
Everything was great but the shower stall was too small for the shower head that was used. It wouldn't lower enough to rinse the soap off my lower legs or feet. I do like a shower instead of a tub though!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dons1 very noisy
If you stay at this hotel ask to stay on third or fourth floors. There is no monitoring of lower floors so young kids run wild and are quite noisy.
Food at restaurant is mediocre at best.

Staff are, as always, excellent and friendly. And in paticular Angel and Brian, who were brillant.
I can only find one flaw with the stay that was the Wifi it is not brillant. Other wise all areas were brillant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dutchess10 Great for a Family Weekend.
Everyone was so friendly and helpful right from the moment we checked in, to housekeeping needs to the staff at the pool! The water park is awesome! Well planned. The adults could sit and watch the kids while they played in the water. The pools cover the needs of a large range of kids. Our grandkids range from ages 2 to 9 and there was fun and activities for them all. The bunk beds are so unique! It makes the kids feel pretty special that they get their own "little room". This is the second time we have stayed for a family weekend getaway and we will do it again!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Our new favourite spot to stay!
The beds were comfy, the food was delicious, and the water park was perfect sized! It was small enough where we could relax while the kids (8 and 10) swam and played and we didn't have to worry too much about them, but big enough where they had a blast! They could have stayed for a week. The staff was very friendly and accommodating as well. I can't wait to go back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Critique1 Very good service but..
I stayed there last weekend and thought customer service was superb. I would have given 5 stars but when we first entered the room, underneath the coffee table, there was a lot of food particles that was not vacuumed up prior to us coming in. Lastly, the room made a soft clicking sound throughout the entire night. I was not sure if it was air return or not. It wasnt the A/C because we didn't have it on. But It made it hard for me to sleep since I am such a light sleeper. The person that came up to our room could not figure it out either. Very frustrating!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jensje1074 Fun for families
My family and I just stayed one night to try it and we had a great time. I have a 2 1/2 yr old and a 6 yr old. The swimming area was great for both of them and the hotel provides life jackets which was helpful. We stayed in the bunk-bed/King size bed suite and it was great. The kids loved having their own "room". Plus my 6 yr old was able to pick out some games to play on the play station. It says they are for rent, but there was no charge. Kids eat for free with a paid adult meal at night, and then we recieved a $20.00 coupon for breakfast as well. It was a great meal.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ms24540 Exceptional service
During our stay at the hotel, my son was injured (through no fault of the hotel). My son and I had to stay overnight in the hospital, while my husband stayed in the room with my infant daughter (but didn't use the waterpark.) We were staying just one night with two other couples and their families. Due to the injury, we didn't get to enjoy the waterpark. My son really wanted to go back, so I called to see if the hotel would be willing to do anything even though it wasn't their issue. I left a message for Patrick who called me back right away. He was very understanding and gave us our money back so we could come back and enjoy the hotel another time.
For the short time we were at the hotel, we really liked the room. It was a nice set up with lots of space.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by nothapp don't stay here with a team!
Not a team friendly hotel...stay away.
There was no place for the kids to hang out as a team.
Kids eat free not included in our team rate that we had to use.
Food was overpriced for a below average buffet.
Staff was not very friendly.
Room didn't clean until after 7pm after we had been gone all day and came back to a mess.

The staff was great. We stayed for four days and had a great experience. The room was clean with the exception of a stain in the carpet. The pool and water park were perfect for both kids and adults. We loved that the area had a lot of dining and shopping available too. We will definitely stay here again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SuzyQ30 Awful internet
I was pretty satisfied with this hotel, in general, until I tried to go online to do some work. I experienced awful internet service. Password (provided at check in) did not work. Did not work for my iPad, or PC. After calling for support, I was manually added as a user and could use my iPad, but was told I'd have to suffer through the same ordeal again to gain access for my laptop. Since it was not a 'quick fix' - I declined and decided to forgo doing my online work. Once I did get online access on my iPad, it was extremely slow bringing up pages. Certainly did not appear to be 'high-speed' internet connection, as was advertised.
The room was clean, and basically comfortable. I just felt the rate was excessive for the location and amenities.
Oh, and a strange red blinking glow from behind the TV did affect my sleep during the night.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChicagoLarry I'm sorry I can only give five stars
I travel a lot on business in Europe and the US, and when I'm in the Minneapolis area I always stay here. I have stayed at most of the Holiday Inns and Express hotels in the area over the last 12 years. But for the past 3-4 years I have made this hotel my home base while I'm in town. The staff is wonderful and go out of their way to be helpful.
Debbie in the restaurant and Brian in the lounge (to name but two) are just great people. Every part of the hotel is spotless.
The General Manager, Patrick is doing a great job and seems very hands on. That is importent as you notice in the little details through out the hotel. The location is great with the many restaurants and stores in the area as well. I know it sounds like I work for the hotel, LOL, but I am in hotels two or more weeks a month and I know a great hotel when I see one.

Fun hotel...overall very clean & very friendly staff. They upgraded our rm, so we had extra rm & a full size frig (yay). Fun waterpark. Ample stores & restaurants very close by. Easy 2 get 2. We stayed 5 nights, & while I didn't expect them 2 change the sheets every night, I kinda thot they would've after seeing blood stains? So the 2nd day after the stains, we left 4 breakfast & I mistakenly told the wrong guy (not a maid) that we'd B right back & then leave 4 the day. We got back & the maid was cleaning. I told her we'd B gone in 5. She told me she couldn't make my bed w/ my personal belongings on the bed, so I took them off & wrote a note 2 chg sheets on the other bed, but she nvr came back. Possibly a misunderstanding though. All in all, great place! We would definitely stay there again.
