Where to Stay Near Lost Island Waterpark
We stayed at the Hampton Inn Waterloo Cedar Valley, a wonderful hotel with spacious rooms. It’s close proximity to Lost Island Waterpark was ideal, as well as many restaurants.
Our family stayed in a 2 bedroom suite, with very comfortable beds, and a spacious area with a sofa, television, desk, and chair.
The bathroom was very large and accommodating!
This room also included a microwave, fridge, and extra sink. This was a great space to make our lunches for the day!
The lobby was spacious, and the breakfast area offered a variety of seating options, which was open throughout the day and offered a great place to people to work, if needed.
The breakfast was more than your typical hotel breakfast, with amazing smoothies that we all loved!
When we look for hotels, we always pick one with an indoor pool, which offers a great place to wind down with the kids after a busy day.
