I was very impressed with the high standards here. The room is basic but everything I need: clean, comfortable bed with firm support, good internet connection and surprisingly roomy. This may be the largest room for the price I've stayed in. Not huge but big.

We stayed there last weekend. It's an older motel but looked nice, the grounds were nice. The office smelled pretty bad, not bad if you like the smell of curry, but I don't. The owners live there and I'm sure that was their cooking. The room we were in smelled and we had to really air it out, the comforters... More

This motel was concerning. I am all about economical lodging. But I planned to stay at this place by myself . The first thing I noticed when I pulled around back to my room, was the many other questionable looking occupants who looked like "permanent" lodgers. They were sitting outside the other rooms smoking, or just loitering around. All were... More

This is an older classic motel not upgraded in years, but the sheets were clean, the water hot and the wifi & air conditioner worked. It has a great location on the east side of Baraboo coming in from the interstate. For a budget-conscious traveller it's OK - the stained carpet and beat-up doors don't affect your sleep. Its right... More

My Wife and I stayed here 3 nights over the Memorial Day Weekend. This is an older Hotel, but the owners take good care of it. The price was extremely low and the location is about the best you can get near downtown Baraboo and the surrounding area. It's close to several area attractions as well as main highway's. The...

The hotel could use some updating but our room was clean, well maintained and the shower was hot with plenty of water. The room was quiet and conveniently located. The price was really right and the sheets were fresh. Well worth the price. We were in the back section so the wi-fi didn't work but otherwise, it was a good... More

I was there with my friends for a summer vacation, stayed here for three days. I went with a bunch of my friends. Great service, and is close to other attaractions which was great. Loved the owners, great people and very friendly, they made great suggestions for attractions in the area. The motel also had great literature about attractions that... More

Unlike other reviewers, I found this place fine. I was in Baraboo to visit Devil's Lake State Park -- which is gorgeous. The first place my friend took us to was sold out. With the help of her GPS device, we found this place. For around $70, we got a nice, clean room around back. The proprietors are friendly people.

It felt like a crack house motel. The smell and filth could not be overlooked. Gross,gross,gross!! I suggest the clarion for not much more money....its clean and they have a pool. How this place stays in business is a mystery. I'd rather sleep in my car than stay here.

This place looked decent out front, and for $75 we expected the basics. We stayed in room #33 (around the back), and I wish we had read reviews before we decided to stay here. It was FILTHY! The room was full of flies, both live ones and ones smashed all over the walls and ceilings. There was a HUGE stain... More
