Thought it could've been nicer

Pros: Water park was fun but was a hassle getting a pass.
Location: Location was good and was nice to have the extra entertainment and facilities within the hotel
I thought this hotel was a little run down for not being that old. The drains in the bathroom seem clogged, the water was slow going down plus there was a clothing sticker on the mirror. The comforter on the bed had holes and tears in it. Also there was just a flat sheet on the bed that came up since it wasn't secured on the mattress. Also, found a pair of dusty socks under the bed when I was making sure all the kids toys were picked up.

the condition of the inn and park

this hotel and pool are no good, it is not what we expected, for what the rooms rates are they are outof line...There is no mircwave ovens in the rooms, there is no pop, ice, on the floors if you want some you have to go from floor to floor to find any. the vending machines if any are half enempy, and if stay over night you have to pay for the water park again for the day...this is suppose to be top of the lines in water park inn, well it is not.I am letting everyone that i know that this is not the place to stay...........and the water park is very small..........They have bottle water in the room, like you buy in the stores to drink well if you open one of them bottle it will cost you $* plus taxes to drink it.........this place is way out of line............dont stay find some other place to take the kids and have fun.

Pool and hot tub is free to guests. If you want to use the water slides you have to pay extra. Rooms are very clean and comfy. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Very convenient with 4 restaurants (1 of which is exclusive to the over 21) and being connected to the Alerus Center is really nice for events. The location of the hotel makes it easy to find and get to shopping, UND events, and the airport.

Canad Inns / Splashers of the South Seas

I thought that this hotel was AMAZING! Their staff was super friendly, the waterpark was so much fun, and the rooms were very original and clean. My family and I stayed in one of the Childrens Theme rooms and they had so much fun in thier own little room with the bunk beds, playstation, and TV's. Also, their beds are so comfortable...I would prefer thiers to our own at home! I would recommend this hotel to EVERYONE!

Great hotel for families

We travel to Grand Forks several times a yea to visit family and whenever we travek with the kids we always stay here. The hotel lists the pool / waterpark is separate and recently included use of hot tub and activity pool in room rate. But with all the activities we always get the water park passes to use all the waterpark area. I would also recommend calling them direct to reserve because they offer several rooms not available anywhere online. WE LOVE THIS HOTEL!!!!

deceptive marketing

Canad Inn lists the pool as an amenity, shows pictures of it on the website, but fails to mention that it costs extra per person to use it. The cost is $10.95 per person for everyone over age 2. We made the trip down to Grand Forks for some shopping. Of course, the kids wanted to go swimming (you can see the slide from the outside of the building). It ended up costing us an extra $50 for the family to swim for about an hour. We will stay at a different hotel next time.
