My parents stayed here the weekend of March 21. I was supposed to stay with them, but after entering their room and smelling stale cigarettes, I decided to get a room elsewhere. We were carpooling so I did spend a good amount of time in their room eating and visiting. When looking for this hotel to review, I noticed the... More

I have stayed at this hotel before as the offices I report to are located nearby. I always chose this hotel because of the location. However this time around, there was new friendlier staff. The bar/restaurant was open so that saved me a trip outside. It was very cold outside. The food was delicious, cheese curds were addicting. The pool... More

I got a room here kind of late on a Saturday night. Sometimes when you stay on a weekend a place might be noisy or things might be neglected. Not here. The room was nice and clean. It had plenty of space to stretch out. The service was great. The breakfast was hot but the potatoes could have been fresher.... More

As an OTR trucker I'm looking for a new spot when needed. Last week I needed a room. Good truck parking was number one, number two was a good truckers rate. One out of two ain't bad. The rate wasn't the greatest, but I've stayed in a lot worse for a lot more. The parking was good & the hotel... More

I have stayed here a couple of times in the past traveling for business and to be utterly honest, I was not impressed until my recent stay last week. I had a very decent stay with better breakfast and friendlier staff. Will come back again!

I know the history of this place. I have been trucking for over 22 years and stayed many a night at the Drovers Inn as I still call it. What you people need to do is go back to what made that place in the first place, the history of the town. The kitchen once made a steak dinner for... More
