We were in Okoboji for a wedding and reserved a room at Bridges Bay. We had a second floor room overlooking the lake. The view was beautiful! Other members of our group had rooms that opened to the garden area. We were able to accommodate a large group of people outdoors for family and friends. The hotel staff was great.

The hotel is pretty well kept but not the cleanest I've seen. Having an indoor waterpark and outdoor summer-time pool I'm sure the place stays very busy. We booked a 2 bedroom Condo which was a King Suite including kitchen, dining, fireplace and patio that adjoined to a 2 Queen standard room (patio access). It slept 8, we only had... More

Waterpark center pool freezing! Mold on the high ceilings. Unacceptable! I have seen this place in better shape. Sad to see a nice place not be taken care of. Been going for many years. Otherwise decent place to stay.

Hello Janice H and thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear of your thoughts on our waterpark. The boiler for the wader pool has been on order for a few weeks now. It is a very specialized, large piece of equipment and so they cannot be bought locally. We have been told it is on the way.... More

We had such a blast here with three adults and 4 kids. Everyone was happy from the slides to the food and cocktail bar to entertain the adults. The lazy river was great too and we had an outdoor pool to go back and forth from. Cant wait to go back again!

The resort is a very nice place to stay. We had a suite and second bedroom for five of us. The bedrooms are wonderful and the living room suite is a nice addition when hanging out. The kitchenette and dining room make it possible to enjoy your stay even more. Two balconies came with our room slowing a nice view... More

The indoor pool area was fun for kids! (Teens & tweens). And we also enjoyed the beautiful outdoor pool overlooking the lakes! They have a nice swim up bar, too! Bracco has live music, too. There is fun for all at this resort. We would come here again!

Pool area is great for kids of all ages! Comfortable for families. Very clean and staff was helpful! Were there in the off season so the restaurant was not open at that time. Rented a place off of VRBO and was excellent for small kids.
