It was an excellent experience and we will be booking it again for next year's ride! It was very clean, the pool was great. The breakfast items were plentiful with a very sweet hostess there. The beds were very comfortable and it was very quiet so we could rest for the next day's ride.

The Best Western lake front in manitowoc was adequate. When you first walk in the hotel smells very damp and must as well as it being humid. I do not think they have proper ventilation for their indoor pool. The decor of the room is very outdated but the room is spacious and comfortable. Bed was fine with the exception... More

We stayed at this motel because it is right on Lake Michigan and there is a nice walkway along the lake. We had requested a room with a view on the third floor when we made our reservation and were pleased that was what we got. The room was spacious and very clean.

I love the location of this quaint hotel. The staff is very personable and attentive. Although there is no lounge/restaurant on site it is located within walking distance of numberous good bars and restaurants. The location right on Lake Michigan is convenient as there is lot of public access to the views of the water.

King size bed - top notch. All things in the room worked. Hotel is in good shape and walking distance to the Wisconsin Maritime Museum. For a place right on Lake Michigan and the Manitowoc River...this place deserves more business. Stay here and take advantage of the location, the harbor walk and the Museum next door. Breakfast was the typical... More

We absolutely love this Hotel. We stay there at least 3 times a year. The rooms are clean and tidy. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the hot breakfast is delicious. The manager and staff are kind, meet all of our needs and in our opinion are totally awesome.
