This hotel needs to be restored to former glory. "Handicap accessible" rooms need to be upgraded to have roll-in showers. "White" towels should be white, not gray. Hotel needs to restore the full-service restaurant that used to exist at this location, not just a "breakfast" room which is of low quality. Best Western needs to update it's in-house reservation software.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Best Western Lakefront Hotel in Manitowoc, WI. The staff are very accommodating and our grandchildren enjoyed their stay. The 4-year old said, "Grandma, I love this hotel."

We had a pet-friendly lake view room on the first floor that was squeaky clean, but had a small bathroom. The location of this hotel was superb for us since we enjoy scenic walks after a day of traveling - the boardwalk along Lake Michigan was literally right outside our door, so we took walks both in the evening and...

I was not able to book a reservation in this hotel due to it being booked for the PGA tour being in town, but when I got into town I called and they had a last minute cancellation. On this trip I took advantage of the hotels prime location on the lakefront by walking around the lake, harbor, and parks... More

Front desk staff was rude to everyone. The entrance was in a permanent state of construction. The atrium ceiling leaked. The towels were threadbare and gray. There was black mold in the bathroom. The beds should have been replaced 10 years ago when the springs went haywire. The price required a 2 night stay because there was no way someone... More

The room was clean, quiet, all amenities worked and the bed comfortable. Sadly the windows were filthy. I brought this up with management and the upcharge for the view we had paid was taken off our bill. The breakfast was adequate and includes hot food; the pool was warm and clean. The location is great being on the lake and... More

Skip this one. This place is so overpriced its ridiculous. We paid $169 a nite for a small room with 2 Dble beds and the same for a king. The tv's were hardly useable and when I told the front desk the response was "what do want me to do about it? " lamps didn't work. The staff didn't seem... More

Location is great. Price was very good. Hotel is not 100% customer service. Had to talk to the manager to have some defects fixed in the room. Towels are old and dirty looking, entrance needs to be fixed but I would stay again.

Paid extra for a view, but window had not been cleaned in months. All suites had same view, but our room was closer to lake. We were given buy one get one drink coupon at check in. Went during happy hour and were charged $9.50 for each glass of cheap wine that was poured in a plastic cup because they... More
