An older property that is extremely clean and well maintained. Tom, the assistant manager, was on duty we when checked in and out. He is really good at his job and made us feel welcome and gladly accommodated every request. Complimentary breakfast was good, and they offer complimentary coffee, tea and hot chocolate 24/7. Also free popcorn from mid-afternoon into... More

Great place to stay, totally dog friendly. Several rooms have been remodeled and are beautifully done. Last year i stayed on the fro t side and although not remodeled these rooms were very nice as well. All the amenities of the fancy chains with the friendliest staff! Will stay here whenever I am in the area.

Was a very nice outside entrance motel with pool and breakfast. Bathroom area/sink was pretty cramped, but clean. Standard cold breakfast, but biscuits and gravy were nice touch. Outdoor pool was nice along with the front desk. Subway is close, but food at Gibbys was good sitdown. Would stop here again if it was on our way.

Great place to stay. Clean Rooms, welcoming staff. It is close to attractions in the area as well. Most important, we slept very well. Guests were courteous and quiet. I would hugely recommend this hotel if you are traveling this way.

The staff was wonderful and the location was great! The room was really comfortable but the beds were a little small. The room was cute and had quilts on the beds. Pool was fun! Breakfast was nothing spectacular but not bad. We will make sure to come back! It was a very clean hotel and I always appreciate that!

Independent hotels with the name "budget" in the title may tend to put one on the defensive. Let your defenses down when you walk in the lobby. This is a VERY nice property with wonderful rooms and a complimentary breakfast that puts most of the larger chains to shame. The only drawback for me, as an allergy sufferer, is they... More

We discovered this "great place" a few years ago when there was a St. Louis Cardinals game in St. Louis and we could not stay at our usual place of lodging. This was truly an example of one door closing and another one opening. Now even though it is a bit longer drive from our home in Wisconsin Rapids, we... More
