Still taking teasing about the name- but this was the best decision for accommodations for our 3 day jaunt to Northern Wisconsin! Cleanest motel ever, rustic but convenient setup, friendly and helpful staff- even when I messed up the remote for the TV to get the Packers game! Wish there were a strip of hooks in the bathroom along the... More

We stayed at the River Rock Inn while visiting the Apostle Islands and were thoroughly impressed with the accomodations. We got the last room available, which was handicap accessible and very spacious. It included a kitchenette, which we didn't use, a dining table, cable tv and comfy chairs to lounge in while watching it. The bed was really comfy and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a great review. Glad you enjoyed your stay aside from the road traffic noise. It can get pretty bad with the high volume of summer traffic but we do hope to see you again in the future. More

We've stayed at a few places in the Ashland area and the River Rock is by far the best. The room was spacious clean and comfortable. We were in the double King Kitchenette room (our daughter was with us) and it worked out really well. The Kitchenette was very well stocked with all necessary kitchen items. The hotel was fully...

Passing through Ashland on our way to Duluth we decided to give the #1 ranked lodging in Ashland a try. And its #1 for a reason. Very clean, neat and well maintained property. When we opened our room door we thought we were walking into our own little Northern Wisconsin cabin. Beautiful log furniture and fixtures. And all for a... More

Booked a queen room on line after reading reviews and we were not at all disappointed! We usually stay in big chain hotels......this quaint little place has changed that! The woman who checked is was very nice and very helpful. The room was perfect....fridge, microwave, coffee pot, hair dryer, satellite TV, 2 person walk in shower, a/c, wifi, comfortable bed,... More

Thank heavens for this little oasis on the shore of Lake Superior in northern Wisconsin. Room was clean, nicely appointed, secure and welcoming after a 12 hour drive. Highly recommend a reservation as rooms are sold out often. I was able to reserve a room only after a cancellation so don't hesitate to request being put on the wait list... More

First time I saw the web site for this place, I was intrigued but hesitant. Other family members stayed there so we heard good things. So this trip, we booked a room. Amazing - and who would think it came with a bait shop. King size bed, kitchenette, kitchen supplies, table & 4 chairs, arm chair, huge walk-in shower, lots... More

My husband and I stayed 4 nights the last week in August in the huge King single room with optional kitchenette. We were not disappointed. The road noise on highway 2 was not a problem. The room with large scale furniture was clean and very Northern Wisconsin. Not as plush as the Hotel Chequamegon we have stayed in the past,... More

We booked this hotel since it was highly rated on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The room was enormous and immaculately clean. You could also choose to use the well equipped kitchen for an extra charge. It was in a good location right by the lakeshore and easy to find. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the handicapped room but did not use the kitchen facilities offered for a nominal additional cost. Very clean, comfortable beds and a cute décor that even included mounted fish!. Good TV, sturdy hand made knotty pine furniture to ensure the up north feeling.
