Clean and friendly. Decent breakfast. Waterpark is great--nice selection of activities but not so big you can't find your kids. Convenient quick grill and bar attached to the waterpark. Friendly staff all around. Can be a little noisy at night due to all the young kids.

This hotel is a wasteland if you're there on business. The water park feature is amazing but the "Bar & Grill" is a sad little counter with 4-5 stools generally occupied by bearded workmen and not inviting in the least. Looks like a YMCA grill from the 1960s, ha. They have a good breakfast (don't eat it, but it looks ample) and coffee available at all hours. The rooms are currently (May 2016) undergoing renovations so the 1st and 3rd floors are not too accessible. Also means the 2nd is stuf... Read more

Great location of hotel. Stay was very friendly. Free breakfast in the morning was great and had plenty of seating. Sometimes hotels may have one or two tables and they had plenty. Waterpark very fun for the family. Kids favorite part were waterslides. Cute little play area for the little ones. Consession area had plenty of options and decent priced. There were always warm towels for when you get out of pool. Adult only hot tub was nice. Had a double queen and pull out couch. Plenty of room for ... Read more

For the price of the "family suite" it wasn't worth the hassle. For starters, the room was dirty, I had to wipe down a sticky substance that was all over the tables, not to mention the used cotton ball on the floor and hair in the tub. Secondly, the room was super small for a suite, it was a normal room size with a woodland themed bunk room built into the already crammed area. Finally, my husband and I were kept up for the majority of the night because the room was right next to the mechanica... Read more

I have stayed here before and the place has been remodeled. Our room was clean and very well decorated. While my previous visits were good, this visit was definitely better with the remodeling done. Breakfast area has a lot of seating so no waiting for a place to sit. Also the pool area is a great place for the kids.

If you read any of my reviews, you know I tell it like it is...good or bad, and I'm not sure why this hotel doesn't get more 5-star reviews because it certainly deserves it. We were just passing through Baxter and decided to try it and we couldn't have been more pleased. First of all, the staff, at least everyone we encountered, was friendly and very accommodating. The hotel is either very new or has been recently updated and is modern and clean. The free breakfast was probably the same as all ... Read more

Spending the night as a business traveler tonight and had no idea it was more of a mini resort. This hotel is decked out with a great north woods look and water park in this summer getaway location. The rooms are nicely decorated with the perfect amount of amenities like fridge, Kuerig, and microwave. Great place to bring your family and if you are still young at heart and traveling for business, bring your swimwear.

This was a business and family trip. Stayed in a kid suite with a double bed and separate curtained off space with two sets of bunk beds. Our 10 yr old was thrilled with both the room and the water park. While I was happy to have the fridge/microwave/kid space as well, the noise transmission from above and in the hall was more than many other places we've stayed. That said, the room was clean. The breakfast plentiful and widely varied, from hot bacon, omelets, and pancakes to grab and go selecti... Read more

Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Baxter and had a fun time playing laser tag with my kids. The laser tag price was $8, but we bought play cards that loaded points onto them that we could use to play laser tag or video games. For a $100 card, we got $160 value in points. We were able to split this into 4 separate cards. This brought the price of the laser tag to just $5 per game. The 2 game rooms were loaded with new games that allowed us to cash in our points for prizes. We used the Waterpar... Read more

Our family stayed here as my son was in a local golf tournament. Close to everything. Great staff at the front desk and in the pool ... Very accommodating. Clean and comfortable rooms! Nice little water park with new additions in the works! Will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

Rooms, service, food and water park were great. My only complaint is that there needed to be a lifeguard stationed on the smaller water slide. I saw one at that particular slide once over a course of 4 days. Even after complaints about bigger kids going down too closely to the smaller ones, knocking them over as they were exiting at the bottom, no one went to regulate slide usage. Other than that, we absolutely loved our stay!

We have been here several times as a family and our kids love it. Nice clean hotel and solid breakfast options. This hotel has a fun water park for small kids up to tweens. If you come here off peak times you can have the place nearly to yourself.

We stayed two nights at the hotel and the kids had a blast. We also stayed a night at the place across the street, and while the Adults liked that hotel better, the kids enjoyed the water park at the Holiday Inn better. The rooms seem to have been recently renovated, and were fairly clean. The only thing we didn't enjoy about the room was the tub that didn't seem to ever drain. The water park was fun and had a pretty big splash/toddler/bucket dump area that the kids loved going up and sliding... Read more

The hotel rooms have been all remodeled... everything was so nice and clean. Comfortable beds. The staff was first rate... both in the hotel and at the waterpark. The breakfast was superb... many healthy choices and very delicious!! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an affordable, clean and fun place to stay.

First, let me say right up front that I am a Marriott guy. That being said, I try to be open minded wherever I stay. I'll admit I did not use the water park, go to the arcade, or play laser tag at this hotel. It was obvious that many families were there on vacation, but unfortunately I was not. The hotel is on the worn and dated side of the Holiday Inn Express chain. The hallway carpets are worn, the carpeting in my room looked like 1970's brown as did the gold padded vinyl pleather headbo... Read more

It is an okay place to stay, fairly standard for an HI Express (except for the water park attached). The location is not much to get excited about, but it's not too far from lakes and activities. It was clean and relatively quiet, and in good condition.

This hotel is very nice, and our room was well cleaned. Breakfast was hot and well stocked. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and our request for late check out was granted. Water parks temperature and water temperature were warm enough to enjoy. Life guards did a good enough job to keep it running. There are plenty of restaurants close by, and a Costco to fill up on gas if you are a member. If I had to suggest areas to improve it would be: Only allow people on a tube in the lazy rive...

We primarily stayed here for the kids to have fun while my wife was running a race close by. The water park is great for the area and they provide life jackets which made our littlest comfortable going down the water slide, which I never imagined he would. We had a suit with two bunk beds and the room was very comfortable for all of us. They had no problem accommodating a late departure so my wife could shower after the race before we got in the car for the ride home.

We stayed one night with family. The little kids were in it for the waterpark. The Good: The room was clean and nice. The waterpark was ok. The Odd: I am used to finding hot water and tea with the coffee. There was coffee out but the hot water was not with the coffee. It was in an old perk on the closed breakfast bar. There were very limited non-caffinated tea choices. This is unusual at Holiday Inns. Breakfast was really bad for it being at a Holiday Inn. No waffles or pancakes and very lim... Read more

We've been to this hotel multiple times. The Water Park is incredible. It has a zero entry design so our 4 year old and our 1.5 year old loved the acessibilty. Us parents loved just letting them run around. The slides are fun, exciting and quick. The water was a bit cool but overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time. Also, the concession stand in the pool area was very well done. A variety of adult beverages and the food was hot and tasty. Not crazy expensive as we've seen at other hotel... Read more

This hotel is not your typical holiday inn, the indoor water park is easily accessible and fun for the kids. We were lucky enough to stay in a kids suite with a bunk bed room for the kids. The kids really loved it. The staff was friendly and hotel (while under renovation) was both clean and quiet. It is close to most things and other than the lack of room for personal items (no real closet) it was a great place to stay!

We stayed there for a weekend in October and while the water park is small, we had a blast. The Service is impeccable and the room was clean and big. We took our dog as this is a family friendly resort and we never heard any other dogs barking. It was very quiet. The Breakfast is what you would expect from a northern MN free breakfast, but it helped start the day. The food at the waterpark was actually quite good. The Pizza was way better than anticipated and the burgers were great. The D... Read more

Spent weekend here for hockey tournament along w/2 other teams. Staff yelled at kids from the start and constantly walking the halls just to see if they can catch someone running. Friday night parents were playing cribbage and talking in lobby and they called the police without a warning. Closed laser tag way early so boys that were at hockey could not play when they got back from tournament.
