Another great mid-level bargain, the Hawaiian-themed Alakai Hotel & Suites features six room styles, from the typical double-queen to a two-room suite that sleeps six. Rooms all come equipped with a microwave and fridge, and are immaculately clean. (“That’s because we’re Polish!” said an employee.)
The resort also has an indoor pool; kiddie waterpark with two slides and water features designed for the 8-and-under crowd; a whirlpool; sauna and four-machine game room. An outdoor pool in front of the entrance features slides and water basketball.
Alakai runs a free shuttle bus to the Ho-Chunk Casino four miles down the road, and has free coffee in the lobby from 7-11 a.m. Free wifi is available throughout the resort. A variety of guest specials is listed on the website; often discounted Noah’s Ark tickets are offered.
