Excellent Value for Your Dollar!

Posted Jun 24, 2015
I booked this stay per my boyfriend's daughters suggestion; they were eager to play in their waterpark, and what an EXCELLENT choice! I just couldn't believe how much they give you for your dollar! I booked a double queen room for just $160 before tax. That included 2 free adult breakfast or dinner vouchers and up to 4 kids eat free off the kids menu too. They also included 4 waterpark passes! I was so impressed I had to share! Liz at the front desk was also very friendly and helpful and the property was clean and well maintained.

Great family hotel!!

Posted May 25, 2015
Pros: Very family friendly
Cons: Maybe a hot tub area that kids are allowed into
Location: Located near several different restaurants and other services.
I would definitely recommend this hotel for families. The water park is excellent. The water was not too cold and there is something for all ages. The new Fun Zone is awesome. You pay a one time family fee and you have unlimited access to mini golf, skeet ball games, crafts, x- box kinect games and more. OUr kids were never bored.

Loved the Indoor Heated Parking in Subzero Temps

Posted Jan 11, 2015 on Hotels
Myself and two daughters unexpectedly found ourselves needing a hotel due to bad weather and horrible roads. The Holiday Inn-Elk River was the first one we came to and it turned out to be perfect for us. The receptionist was wonderful. The indoor heated parking made unloading/loading the car easy during sub-zero temperatures. We really enjoyed hopping into a warm vehicle the next morning when we departed for home.

Family friendly hotel and waterpark

Posted Dec 28, 2014
Pros: Kids eat free! Nice water park!
Cons: Nothing.
Location: There is a Target, bar & grill, convenience stores and other restaurants all very close by.
We are a family of 6 and stayed here for one night on Christmas Day. We went mainly for the water park and it did not disappoint. Plenty of tables, towels well stocked, nice refreshment/food choices right in the water park (including some good adult beverages). Nice zero entry pool and water features for the little ones. 3 fun slides and a standard lazy river for the older ones, plus a pool, BB hoops and a what we call a 'whirly pool'. There was also a very nice hot tub area. Our room was a 2 room suite with 2 standard queens in one room, and a couch & TV in another. Room enough for 4 kids. We always appreciate a good size refrigerator which they had as well. We ate at their on- site restaurant both for an evening meal and for breakfast as well. The staff was very friendly and the food was really good. They have a nice bonus for families: kids 12 & under eat free with a paid adult!! Overall we enjoyed our stay & would definitely return!
