I have stayed in a lot of hotels around the state of Wisconsin. However, none have given me the willys like this place. When I got to the room, I checked the mattress near the headboard. Nasty accumulation of dirt and hairs on the box spring. I was uncomfortable even setting anything down. I grabbed my phone and found a... More

If your definition of "best value" is dirty rooms with poor quality facilities and disappointing service you've come to the right place. From the used soap left in the shower, to the poorly draining tub, the dirty floor, to the trickling bathroom faucet it seems clear that quality service is not a priority. Furthermore the lights flicker, the carpet is... More

This is an inexpensive hotel so I went with the expectations for such a place. I have to say the best feature is the pool. We stayed in February so we just got to enjoy the inside pool, not the outside one. The temperature of the water is just right and so is the one of the spa. The room... More

Decided to stay here as an overnite getaway. Have stayed at this property numerous times while it has been under many different names. It's always had friendly staff and easy check-in. It's a large hotel that while not fancy, is always clean and comfortable. We pick this hotel because it has bar attached (O'Leary's Pub) that always has a band... More

I really liked this hotel. Like many of the other reviews state, its dated, but so what!! Its very clean, and cozy. The staff was friendly, and the breakfast was good enough for us! The rooms are priced accordingly. It is a very large hotel, and you can walk through the hallways to get to a nice pub and a... More

My family had four nights booked at this property over the Christmas week, but when we checked in and made the trek through the long, winding, and dark hallways to our hot and stuffy room that seemingly hasn't seen an update since the property was originally built as a Howard Johnson's, we decided that we didn't want to have Survivor's...

This hotel was by no means glamorous but it was clean and the service was wonderful. My sister and I needed a cheap place to stay the weekend and we found it in this hotel. The only problem we had was with the heater. Its only setting was blazing hot which wasn't a problem. We just switched it off when... More

The front desk staff were excellent! The rooms, on the other hand, were not good. This hotel really needs to be updated. Stains on the carpets and comforters, scuff marks on the walls, table and dressers are scuffed terribly. Free breakfast was okay - I've had better. The shower faucets are corroded. My husband had to take the sink faucet... More

Decent property, beds aren't the softest, free breakfast was ok at best but crowded by 8:15am, staff was friendly yet the shower and tile had some mold and unkept grout and sealants with mold stains. No plastic bag for wet swimsuits. Pool was fine and included a 7' deep end of which was a nice surprise. The hot tub is... More

Came to visit my sister at UW Eau Claire and choose this place based on price and the fact they had a pool. Bad Idea. The carpeting in a room was stained really bad. The hallways as well. Walls are paper thin. Could hear conversation in the next room. Black mold in the shower and I'm pretty sure a large... More
