Located in the heart of Minnesota, this hotel is situated within the Three Bear Water Park and guests can enjoy easy access. The water park is seasonal and features a lazy river and dumping water buckets, which the kids will love. There are plenty of hiking and biking opportunities nearby as well. The hotel features an arcade game. Pets are welcome to stay here as well for an additional fee. The spacious guestrooms and suites feature a queen, double and bunk beds, a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, flat screen television and DVD player. Cribs, rollaway beds and connecting rooms are all available upon request. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is available in the guestrooms, making it easy for guests to stay connected. The free, hot breakfast buffet is a great way to start the morning before hitting the water park. Items likes scrambled eggs, biscuits, fruit and hot and cold cereal can be found. The onsite restaurant, Three Bear Bar & Grill serves lunch and dinner.

The worst place ever!!!! Entry is congested with families going to a water park and laser park that is part of the hotel. So check in is not without the challenge of screaming children, bathing suits, coolers, etc.
After getting keys to room, we proceeded to the strangest elevator o have ever seen. Looks like a bank vault. I was so grossed out by our room. Dark, dark, dark, dank, and awful. Not the cleanest, but no where else to stay. I had something bite me all around my neck that night. Ugh.
This could not have been a Holiday Inn built property. Just the IHG product were b thought in. The beds were uncomfortable, flooring was dark and dirty.
Try your best not to stay.

It’s a nice hotel. It’s well kept, clean, okayish breakfast, waterpark, laser tag, and friendly service. But there’s way to many kids. I don’t know if they walls are just thin, but I could hear kids running in the halls all night. I could hear full conversations and kids crying in the room next to me. Unfortunately, I was here for work and couldn’t choose my hotel, so I got stuck here. I didn’t sleep the time I was there. Oh, the kids also tried to come into my room many times.
