Old facility, needs upgrading. Great place for kids in pool area. Staff helpful but seemingly overworked with out-dated computer. Check-in took 20 minutes - room key machine erratic operation! There was no "clean" TV remote. The staff is coping with poor support but doing the best they can. This facility is NOT a "Plus" facility. It is too old and... More

Location was nice. We had the best salads ever at the restaurant on the Hotel property. Really nice view of the Black river. The room was ok. Had amenities if you wanted to use the River. The bad part was when we took the top blanket off the bed, it covers bototom haf. There was sand on the BED. YUCK... More

Nice quiet location on the river, older structure but well maintained. With the water park it's a great place for families with young kids. The outdoor lounge is a plus on a warm evening, with a great view of the river.

I stayed here with my wife a few weeks back, waiting for our 1st grandchild to be born. I was less that enthused when priceline assigned us this hotel on a 3 star hotel offer. Mid 50's couple at an indoor water park hotel? Reviews were not the greatest either, with worn down rooms & common area's the biggest complaint... More

We booked 3 rooms in August 2014 and were very disappointed. The rooms were very outdated and the hotel needs renovation. The cost of the rooms were outrageous for what you receive. This was the last hotel we stayed at on a 3 day trip and it was by far the worst and most expensive.

My children and I stayed at the Best Western Riverfront Hotel for an overnight on our way West. The one water slide into the pool was enough to keep my kids happy for quite a while. The room was average, but could have been cleaner. There was random hair in the bathroom, on the counter and floor. The bed linens... More

I booked this hotel because it was the only hotel in La Crosse (that I could find) with a slide into the pool. I was very frustrated that they wouldn't let me catch my son when he came down the slide (water at bottom of the slide is 3'6"). They said it was for insurance purposes. Nevertheless, it was a...

stayed at the bw for a wedding. went up a night early to have some alone time with wife. Hotel is right on the river, with some rooms having river views. Also some first floor rooms have patio doors that let you sit outside enjoying the view. Our room was fairly decent, good sized room with king bed and what... More

this hotel has the potential to be a fantastic place if they were to spend some money fixing the aging exterior walkways stairs to the river and the patio bar ( potential to be a gold mine) the room was great ( king suite with jacuzzi tub). The staff were excellent and offered free upgrade for Best Western Platinum Members.... More
