My stay at Hiawatha Lodge Inn was short, just one overnight stay, and a few hours the following morning. However, it reminded me of a classic up north motel with a few fringe benefits. The room was sufficient, but certainly nothing special. The carpet/flooring/decor was relatively clean, but tired. While the place could use a facelift, my sense is the... More

The location of this property was just right for us. We enjoyed the Min-aqua Bats waterski show in Minocqua on Friday night and then headed to Laona to the steam train ride on Saturday. We enjoyed being out on the deck. Tried a little fishing, but just enjoyed the loons and the beautiful scenery the northwoods has to offer. The... More

This place was great-it is like stepping back into time when you get your key with room # on it. Keilah was super every time I e-mailed her which was pretty much daily asking for this and that. We had 2 adults and 3 college kids and it was very comfy and roomy. 2 beds and a roll away. You... More

We stayed June 24th through June 28th very personable and friendly place to stay. Our biggest "wow" moment is that the owners of the hotel took the time to get to know our names and nothing beats a personal touch especially in todays world. The beds and pillows were amazing the best I have ever slept in a hotel. They... More

We enjoyed the unique "Here's your key, let us know if you need anything" attitude. The owners of this property are gregarious -- and the family dog Basil, is an affectionate door-keeper. The property is a work in progress. That does not mean distracting construction, but more a compliment to the many improvements the owners have made, in the past... More

Couldn't say enough about the owner and his family opening their hotel and arms to us this past weekend. Rooms were clean, Breakfast had a good spread for being a small family run continental breakfast. Internet was much better than most of the larger hotel chains. All of the little details were thought of and taken care of for their... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The rooms were super clean and comfy, and very warm. Me and 2 friends had plenty of space w/ 2 double beds and a fold out cot. Wireless Internet worked great for streaming. The coffee is always on and fresh in the morning. But most of all, Scott, the owner, and his staff are extremely nice... More

We stayed for two nights. The owner, Scott, was extremely friendly. He fired up his 18 for wide theater screen for us to play xBox. And went out of his way to make sure we had everything we need. Thanks so much, Scott. Easy access to our parked car and/or snowmobile was a nice bonus.

We have spent a couple of weekends in the Eagle River area and have stayed at this popular family run motel at the north end of Eagle River. It seems to be an excellent location for snowmobilers and is conveniently located on Highway 45. The rooms are reasonably well decorated, and spacious, and some have lake views. There are cathedral... More
