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...

Management and staff were very accommodating, room was beautiful, very clean and quiet. Excellent example of the American Roadside Motel. The Welch is definitely doing it right...and the coffee was good too!

I stayed in a small one bed room for 3 weeks while working in the area. The room was very clean from the start and kept that way by the excellent staff each day during my stay. I have stayed in many places, including pricey hotels in large cities and resorts. This room was as clean and fresh smelling as... More

Selected this place based on TA reviews. We had a 2-bed room. Small, old, mom and pop-ish. Room clean. Grounds are so-so. Some deferred maintenance. No common hallways or lobby, so no place to escape in middle of night. All rooms open to outdoors. Resident owner friendly and helpful. Comfy beds for us. Not so for our friends a few... More

Probably the cleanest, freshest smelling motel room we have stayed at in years. The bed was most comfortable, which gave us an excellent night's sleep. Room rate was probably the lowest senior rate in town. The staff was so obliging and friendly. Will definitely stay at the Welch Motel, the next time we return to La Crosse.

We are always a little concerned when motels have a lower price. Reminds me of a 1950's motel but updated. The rooms are very clean and I felt very safe in this area. The people at the desk were very friendly and helpful.

The staff is friendly, the rooms are very clean and comfortable,it is as close as you need to be to downtown, the university, the state park, shopping, etc. Why spend twice as much money somewhere else? I will definitely stay there again when I am back in town. Perfect at half the price.Thank you!!!

We rented 2 nonsmoking rooms, but one of them had clearly been a smoker's room. Unfortunately, there were no vacancies so switching rooms was not an option. Other than the difficulty breathing, the rooms were fine. The bathrooms were in good condition, and the rooms neat.
