The location of this motel is its best feature. It is across the street from a large bay on Lake Superior. They have a large green lawn that is well kept and a few benches and picnic tables for your use. I enjoyed sitting out in my own chair watching the views. My room was clean, but housekeeping could do... More

YELP REVIEWS ON THIS HOTEL ARE MORE TRUTHFUL. I would leave this motel 0 stars if this site let me. For the price ($75 a night) the room is outdated and reeks like decay and mold. Ashland has so much more to offer for a few bucks more. Also, the owner is not friendly. You have to knock on the... More

Older dated looking Motel. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Motel is in an excellent location with a good view of Lake Superior. Wifi available. We would stay here again when we are in the area.

We stayed here for 2 nights with our 2 dogs. Everything we needed was in the room. The beds were comfy and the location was perfect for us to visit the Apostle Islands. We would stay here again when in the area.

You get what you pay for. This place was good for the price; but don't expect a lot. There was no clock in the room and when I asked if we could have one; the woman in the office seemed annoyed and said no. Since my wife and I had our two-year-old and there were only two pillows and two... More

We needed a place to stay on a trip in Northern Wisconsin and because of some reviews I read and the reduced rate for the fall season I picked the Crest Motel in Ahland. Not planning on staying again. It wasn't clean and we had two beds in the room (my husband, me and our daughter)...her bed was so noisy... More

Went here based on reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. After a couple of nights of camping in fairly cool temperatures, it was nice to have a quiet place, hot showers and a firm bed to sleep in. Nothing fancy, not a major chain, but a fine place to stay at very reasonable rates with a nice view... More

I am a spontaneous top-down convertible "cruiser", and this past week I decided on one day to leave the next day and head for cooler weather to get out of the Texas heat. I had stayed in Ashland at the Crest three years ago while "cruising" and enjoyed it, so I headed that way. Because I travel with no schedule... More

Took a ride on the motorcycle to Ashland Wisconsin. I had seen the reviews for the Crest Motel so we gave it a try. It's family owned and operated for 39 years. It's clean, has comfortable beds, bathroom is clean and has a great view of the lake. They have cable TV, A/C (wall mounted) small coffee maker, fridg and... More

I stayed for just one Friday night for a brief trip to Ashland. My room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the night was very quiet, even with the motel being on the main road into town. The room included a mini frig and microwave-always nice to have when traveling. The shower was piercing with great pressure. It actually... More
