I was given this hotel when using Hotwire, and was a little scared when I pulled up. It obviously had previously been owned by another chain, and then switched over. The renovations were...odd. The lobby was very aged, and we could hear the screaming children in the attached waterpark. Check in took a bit of time, and the receptionist was... More

This hotel advertises in the LaCrosse tourist publication as "luxury with a view". :Let's be real - the Best Western name isn't exactly known for luxury and I have stayed with the chain numerous times to gauge my overall expectations. My #1 issue is the price that I paid (over $100 before taxes) is not worth it. The facility is... More

We stayed here 2 days & 2 nights. My boys (5 & 7) loved the pool area. Husband at convention during the day while we stayed and played. (Large slide open in evenings w/ life guard) all 3 pools no deeper than 3'8" so very kid friendly. The complimentary hot breakfast was very good, boys had Belgium waffles each morning.... More

Stayed 4 nites ,the staff was wonderful from front desk to the maids and servers. Really needs updating and the bed was uncomfortable. Location is good and we have stayed there for many years (multiple nights each time) Value for the money is not there anymore, Hope they make changes so we can keep staying there.

My husband and I were in LaCrosse visiting relatives and decided to stay at the Best Western. We are over 50 so when I booked the room I asked for an AARP discount. The room was $116.99 plus tax. Our room was a handicap room which in itself is not a bad thing- but the design of the bathroom was... More

We have travelled to this hotel by boat for an overnight stay 4 years in a row. It has always been a little dated but generally clean and kept. This year it seems to have gone down hill. The boat docks looked like they aged a generation since last year. Some boards needed replaced asap and there was a full... More

My wife and I travel a lot both for work and pleasure. This hotel the water park was great for the kids. The rooms on the other hand were horrible we had lots of spiders, with the rooms close to the water they were really humid and damp and loud.

Every time I come to LaCrosse I stay here while visiting my family and grandchildren. The room was really big and accommodated my needs in having a recliner due to medical needs. I would definitely recommend this hotel especially if you have kids as it has an indoor water park for both younger and older children.

Bedding and overall building needs updating. Need more blankets. Pillows were too soft. Beds too hard. Patio door was very difficult to close. Room had a musty smell. There was small amount of hair in the tub and bathroom floor.
