3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

the hotel was nice but there was no continental breakfast for the price there should of been We went to a wedding and we wanted a few folding chairs to gather in one room afterwards and they would not let us have any.

Need to check in early and check my daughter in also. Got both rooms done quickly.

Booked this for a mid week trip to see a Twins game and do some shopping. The Northstar Train was 5 minutes away and took us to Minneapolis for cheaper than we could drive there and only 10 minutes away was the outlet mall. Kids Suite had 3 rooms and plenty of beds. Water park was decent and well run.

The hotel was room was great! The 2 room suite was perfect for my family, we were able to put the kids to bed and Mom and Dad could stay up and watch TV without worry of waking them up. And the pool, what can I say AWESOME! The kids would have stayed in there all night if we allowed them.

Check in and out was fast and efficient. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Water park was great. Overall great experience.

I fully paid for my hotel room with MY credit card. When I arrived to check in they refused to check me in since my boyfriend and I were under 21 even though we are both 19. It was very ridiculous and the staff was very rude. They were not helpful in finding a new hotel and refused to give us a refund and told us to call our travel agent

2 parents 4 kids from under a year to age 19 everyone enjoyed the pool, rooms are nice, great experience all around

We arrived very late (1:00AM) but staff were available to check us in straight away. Rooms were clean and roomy but we are used to a pillow top mattress so the beds weren't as comfortable as we are used to.

We had a great time! The water park was perfect for our three year olds and baby. The lazy-river isn't so lazy--keep an eye on you young ones; they can get swept away. . My hubby and I had a fun ride down one water slide. We came on a Saturday afternoon and the water park was PACKED, but by late afternoon, had thinned out. Sunday it was less-packed. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly. Just wish it had a continental breakfast because we like those ;). Great priced pizza place right next door. Good pizza. Thinking about booking our stay for next year!

Pretty good water park for family's fun! We enjoyed it.

Our suite was clean, spacious and nicely appointed for a family of four. Walls are a bit thin as we could hear loud talk from our neighbours. Water Park was fantastic and admission was included with our stay. Target and Denny's were both nearby.

The staff was super friendly and helpful. The water park was great fun for the kids, but was only open on the weekends so we didn't use it as much as we would have liked to. Wish we had known that. The rooms were not very sound proof...an adjoining room ran their tv all night and we had to listen to it as well. The rooms were clean and nice. We would probably go back but not if the water park was closed.

There were 6 of us in the suite and a total of 3 bath towels. I went the front desk and got 3 more the first day but when the room was cleaned we were back to 3 towels. also the pillows were TINY!

Great stay at this hotel (Mon-Tues after Easter) and pretty quiet. Rooms were well kept, almost new condition, spacious double queen room. Did not eat in the hotel restaurant. We enjoyed the waterpark, which was busy but not overcrowded, I could see how it probably would be on the weekends! Plenty of attentive lifeguards, plenty of towels. For an overnight stay, there was lots for our kids (5 and 7) to do. They loved the waterpark!

The hotel was in great shape ... We stayed in the King Kids suite which has 3 rooms. Great price for such a nice room. The water park was a blast!!! Kids eat free in the hotel restaurant!!! The hotel is a big family get away spot and was kinda of noisy. We are planning on going back again next year.

1st time we were on the first floor it was ok we had some trouble trying to dial out on the phone and accidently called 911 a couple of times the staff at the desk became quite rude on the phone with us for an honest mistake. This time we were on the 2nd floor and even though it was quite nice the last night the room above us was really loud with people running and jumping in the hallways till early morning.

Our family played in the waterpark , I spent an afternoon in Albertville shopping at the Outlet Mall

The kids just loved the Waterpark! Lots of fun!

The Elk River Holiday Inn was a great value. The water park was fun and well kept. Even my 3 teenagers enjoyed it. I only had an issue with with housekeeping on one day and it was resolved. The two room suite was good for the size of my family. The staff was responsive and friendly. The restaurant was well priced for breakfast, which is the only meal we ate there. There were no laundry services, this would be a good addition as we were there for a week.

Connie, Thanks for your feedback. Since we are a full service hotel, we do not offer a continental breakfast but rather a fresh, hot, cooked to order breakfast instead that most guests prefer. The price of your stay does not include breakfast but it does include passes to our amazing water park!
