I spent one night recently and did so because of the rate, but otherwise sight unseen. The staff was courteous, especially pointing out the AAA would provide a discount. The room was clean, did not have any odors, had clean sheets, clean bathroom and carpeting. It was an easy-in and easy-out the next day. Convenient location along one of the... More

I'm an older female traveling by myself. I was given a room around the back of the hotel facing an unlit parking lot. The outside light over my door was burnt out as well. When I first pulled into the lot, I was on the phone with my husband and I saw the woman at the desk look out the... More

Kathy took care of all the difficult details with our Team billing, never a mistake even when there were changes for reservations. The rooms were clean, neat, comfortable. Anything we needed was taken care of immediately. A nice entry way, breakfast, care for our comfort and experience. We basically live in hotels year round, this is definitely one that is... More

We had no complaints. Friendly proprietor. Room was clean and in good repair. Windows worked as did AC and fan. Clean refrigerator and spotless microwave. TV worked. Excellent connection and superb hi speed internet. It is not the Hilton... but c'mon this is Ladysmith in beautiful northern Wisconsin. If this is too downscale for you... go south - this part...

OMG! I have never been in such a gross motel! There was an over whelming smell of dog and some sort of food! ( I think) The odor was so bad that all of our clothing, things that had been in the room (for only 14 hours) had to be washed because the unknown odor attahed itself to EVERYTHING!! Gross!... More

I was concerned about staying at the El Rancho after reading some of the older reviews but we found the motel to be quite adequate. It's not fancy but was actually much better than anticipated due to the old reviews. The room and the rest of the motel were clean. Water pressure was good and the A/C worked very well.... More

My family has been staying here for 10+ years and will come back time and time again. It's a nice hotel for the area and is very conveniently located by the snowmobile trails for those passing through in the winter months. They are just outside of the city limits so you do not have to pay the high hospitality tax... More

I've stayed in many very nice hotels across the country and am generally pretty particular about my hotel rooms. Your expectations here just need to be different. We've stayed here many times (and again in a couple weeks) and are always pretty satisfied with the accommodations. No, it's not a modern or "nice" hotel, but it serves its purpose and... More
