I really liked this place. We always have trouble finding rooms in La Crosse on the weekends. We had a group going in that direction and were able to get 5 rooms at the Welch. For the money, this place can't be beat! The rooms were all clean and comfortable. Many of the showers had been re-done with nice tiles.... More

This is what a motel is folks...small, right on the roadway, and owned and run by a local fella. Recalling the charm and ease of the Motor Lodges of days gone by, this little gem is clean and a breeze to access. Don't want to spend 20 minutes checking in and then have to park 1/4 mile from your room,... More

Some rooms have been up graded. Most rooms are marginally set up, but clean. Air conditioning was noisy. Ok TV. Very mom and pop, 1960's style place, owned by a young immigrant couple who are working hard to make a go of the old style hotel. Great price. NOT YOUR HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS,

It was immediately evident that this hotel was overpriced. I knew several others staying in the motel the same weekend and we were all disappointed with the value in contrast to previous reviews. There are other hotels with the same amenities but with 2/3 the price. Other than two cold morning showers, the experience was fine. It is an older... More

This hotel was a good value for the money, but the sheets were thin and worn as were the bath towels. It was a clean room and a good value, but I think sheets and towels should be purchased every once in a while to help guests feel comfortable! Hotel was centrally located and the manager was friendly upon checkin.... More

Room was a bit dated but clean; motel is well located on the main drag into La Crosse. No breakfast, just coffee in the morning. Overall, it was adequate and fairly priced and fine for a night or two.

Philip is very gracious and welcoming and does his best to accommodate you. Our room was clean and comfortable if a bit dated. The bathroom is small but clean with nice towels. Coffee in the office in the morning. Free wi-fi.

This is a classic 1950's motor court on the outside. Inside, it's clean and comfortable, but little mid century remains in the room. But it was clean, quiet. No smells. No stains. Nothing broken. $76 including tax on a summer weekend night.

Recommended motel to friend since reviews were good. Nasty! Nasty! Second night we decided to check out and stay at another hotel downtown. Went back on here to look at reviews again and noticed most of the reviews that give it 5 stars were created at same time and only reviewed this one motel. Obviously owner is making up profiles...
