Atlantis Hotel and Waterpark Wisconsin Dells Wisconsin

On our latest visit to Wisconsin Dells to visit the amazing Ice Castles, we were open to trying something new. We have had fabulous stays at Great Wolf Lodge and a private cabin, but wanted something a little more low-key (and affordable!) So we turned to Atlantis Hotel and Waterpark!

Nitty Gritty:

Location: 1570 Wisconsin Dells Pkwy, Wisconsin Dells, WI. Located right where all the action is – across the street from Mt. Olympus and minutes away from downtown Dells, shopping, and food.
Check-in and Check-out:  2:30 p.m. (on website) but 3:30 p.m. (when I called) and 11 a.m.
Parking: They have their own parking lot but finding an open spot was somewhat difficult to come by. I cannot imagine how much harder it would be during their busy season.

Room highlights

We stayed in a renovated double queen room that was simple, yet comfortable.

  • Renovated. Rooms were renovated with nice simple decor including a huge wood dark brown headboard and dark wood furniture.

  • Not too “. The room wasn’t overly done with themed decor; just a couple mermaid wall hangings.
  • Free wi-fi. Gotta love the free wi-fi for the always-connected mommy.
  • Other conveniences. We loved the large mini-fridge and microwave.

Hotel Highlights

  • Updated. Some of the hotel is undergoing renovation and it was nice to see a few updates including the hallway.

  • Free continental breakfast. Anyone looking for a light breakfast with cereal, boiled eggs, bananas, and toast will be satisfied with what they offer. It is located on the 4th floor in the Game Room by the waterpark.

  • 2 indoor pools. The lobby pool is small with a volcano slide and basketball hoops. The other pool located on the 4th floor is more the “waterpark” with two separate areas to swim/play and a whirlpool. We were looking for a waterpark fit for our young kids – 6, 5, and 2 and the waterpark fit the bill. The kiddie area was about 1″ deep all around. It had slides, but most importantly had little fountains!


We wish…

  • …the front desk was more helpful and friendly.  The front desk wasn’t very welcoming upon arrival, and they rushed through the check-in process. When I visit a hotel or resort, I appreciate when they tell us what some of the amenities are. Instead, I asked for a map or brochure.
  • …we spent more time in the larger waterpark. We didn’t know there was another pool located upstairs on the 4th floor. If I hadn’t looked at the map (that I requested) we would have missed out on it. 
  • …breakfast had more options. Hot food would have been great.
  • …parking was easier to come by. While they do have their own parking lot, it seemed that we could only find parking far from our entrance.

Bottom Line:

If you’re looking for a hotel with a great value, close to everything in the Dells, and a waterpark best for toddlers, Atlantis would be a great option. I hope that our customer service experience was just a fluke, and hope they will work on having more options for breakfast.
