We arrived later in the evening and I had called in the afternoon to inform the hotel we would be arriving around 10pm. We arrived at 10:30 pm to find the hotel had already charged us for our room and given our king room away. We ended up with 2 creaky doubles in an outdated, steamy upstairs room and no... More

I've stayed here twice now because I could not get closer to Green Lake where I wanted to be. The place is small, appears to be owned by the guy who is there 24-7 and is a little suspect when it comes to cleanliness. The price is just okay. Not terrible but I'd rather not stay there. The free breakfast... More

if you are on a business trip and you want a clean and warm hotel to take rest after an heavy day of work this Hotel is not suggested. There is no breakfast (so you have to plan another place to get it), the room was terribly cold, the furnitures are ' 70s and never renovated.... so, for these kinds... More

the desk clerk was very kind to us and welcoming. he also let us have a later check out, which was much appreciated! :) the room was nice and clean and the bed was great. the breakfast needs a little help, as it was just carbs and not even a piece of fruit in sight! but is was free, so... More

I wish the review scale went into the negatives because staying here was the worst experience I've ever had. We stayed at this hotel for an out of town wedding keeping in mind that there are only two hotels in berlin. When i went to check in, I had high hopes. The hotel was clean and the owner seemed nice,... More

Make sure to write all your information down that he gives you. Hotel clerk - owner tried giving us a differnt story than what he told us when we booked the rooms prior to our arrive date. Owner is dry, reserved, hard to understand, tight and doesn't like to spend $ on anything but wants to charge you for everything.... More

It is basically the only place to stay in Berlin, WI. Nice place, breakfast included. Nice desk clerk, very helpful. Room was 2 double beds, Cable TV, WiFi, Well worth the price and convenience of location. Close to many larger cities. Room did need a vacuum, but otherwise clean. I would definitely stay there again.

Very small motel and only one of the two in town. Almost passed on it as it looked deserted. Desk clerk could be described as "reserved" but the room had every thing expected of larger motel. King bed. Great water pressure. Fridge & microwave. Respectable looking fitness center and the usual cereal/bagel/waffle breakfast. Mr reserved gave us a good recommendation... More

I never expected too much from rural area. I only wanted a place to sleep for several hours before moving on, so this hotel was adequate. It serves the purpose. We arrived around 9 pm at night. The mapquest direction got us to the destination from a road that t'ed into Ripon Road where the hotel was located. The mapquest... More

We incurred extra charges at check in that we were not told about when we reserved the room. The room was small and cramped. And when we asked for a slightly later check out time the staff was rude and unhelpful. They said they couldn't because of the holiday weekend when there were only 4 cars in the parking lot....
