At the price point the beds and pillows sucked!! The room had not had a good thorough cleaning in quite some time.

My room was clean. I got upgraded to a suite with a full kitchen, living room and balcony with lake views. The food at the attached restaurant was very good. Excellent stay.

Very nice property that is on the lake and has a water park on site.

The 2 bedroom suite was disappointing. 2 rooms no sitting areas just beds. Kids room right next to the door. No mention that our room was in another building separate from water park. Staff Gina at check in took a personal call for 5 minutes while watching us stand at the counter and did couldn’t put the phone down for a second to get us a room key. Considering the cost, all around disappointing trip.

always like staying at bridges bay. the rooms are nice and location is excellent

loved the room and being in the "old" building. great experience.

Very nice and clean hotel with great access to other attractions/activities. A bit pricey but enjoyed our visit.

Bridges Bay condos lake front are very nice, has everything you need, nice balcony overlooking the lake full-size fridge really big TVs and you can still smell the paint(must be kinda new). However we tried to check in earlier than 5pm which is the normal check-in time here and the room wasn't ready til exactly 5. When we finally got our room and checked everything out I found leftover decorations and a little alcohol bottle under the sofa and some hair in the fridge and also the balcony table was dirty with ashes and a couple of cigarette butts. Me being as OCD as I am I just cleaned it up and still enjoyed my time here. Would come again. Fingers crossed I hope they have better house keeping by then.

We supposedly rented an extra large two bedroom condo that was supposed to have a living room with fireplace and full kitchen. What we got was basically a hotel room with two rooms. They said it was Orbitz that misrepresented the property and listed the wrong pictures etc. on their website and wouldn't do anything about it. We would never have rented this room for this price.

The bartender by the pool acted like he hated his job but God is what we needed. Great facility with wonderful accommodations for kids with the waterpark.

We had a suite. Great to have the full kitchen with teenagers who like to eat.

Very nice hotel and pool. I would have liked to have had the option for a continental breakfast though!

The first thing we found (heard) upon check in was the smoke alarm beeping. My husband called down right away as this has happened to us before. We ended up calling twice. No one ever came to fix it (said they had) he ended up taking the battery out. Our main room remote had dead batteries songs traveled downstairs to get new ones. When he got back-those were dead too. There must have been a party in our room the night before as there was confetti traces all over the place and some crackers when we pulled out the couch. The doors adjoining the main room and bedroom was broken. The lock had been removed/broken-either way it wouldn’t shut, we had to use a shoe. The kids had plenty of fun at the water park. We didn’t get to try the restaurant as there wait time was too excessive. It was a busy weekend, we may try another time.

The beds were awful. Paint chipping in the rooms. The pool manager was rude and there were never pool towels available.

A place with very comfortable beds and pleasantly soft pillows. The resort is on a beautiful Lake that has restaurants on the shore and overall just a very terrific experience.

Thank you for staying with us. The Summerlake building is unattached with 18 different room types which can be confusing from a 2 bedroom hotel room to a 2 bedroom suite (condo unit). I apologize for your dissatisfaction and your issues have been addressed. We look forward to your next visit to Okoboji.
