Outdated furnishings. Boasted of a whirlpool in room, but when we were in it it had nasty nasty stuff in the water, maybe from cleaners and sponges?? We only filled it and did not enter due to water. Very busy due to a sporting event in town, could have used more staff, only one person working. (besides at the bar,... More

Very nice place although the decor is a bit set in the 80's. But it is very clean. Young man named Jordan at the front desk was very helpful. We thought he was the new manager and was very surprised he was not. We will be back!

Reserved through Hotels.com for a good price. The attendant was unfamiliar with how to find an online reservation but came through. Nice pool, hot tub & sauna. Room was a furnished with older pieces but clean & functional - soft bed:( Breakfast did include make your own waffles but only fruit was apples, no yogurt nor peanutbutter, no eggs.

Our group of seven, aged 41-84, has just returned from another delightful 5 night stay at the Badger during one of Merrill's busiest weekends of the year. This little jewel is always our hotel of choice due to its cleanliness, friendliness, excellent value, convenience, and hospitality. They offer special discounts for Veterans and senior citizens and are right on the... More

Let us start with the plus factors. The room was clean and the bath and shower were clean and all things were in working order. The staff was friendly and efficient. The price was average. This being said, there are some things that can bring down the rating of the establishment quickly. That would be the furnishings. First of all... More

Pro: very clean hotel! Big con: most inhospitable place ever. In booking I was confused with all sorts of differing prices w very minimal room descriptions, so I decided to call them directly. I had the hotels website in front of me w various discounts but that told me more than the lady at the desk was able to. Finally... More

My only reason for not giving a higher rating is because I always believe there is room for improvement. I stayed at this place years ago when it was linked to another national chain, of which I am a member of their rewards program - with a location in Tomahawk where we've stayed twice a year. Now frequently booked up... More

Simple, inexpensive and very friendly staff. When we arrived, no one had checked the reservations website so our reservation was not in the book. The front desk person kept apologizing because the check in was an additional 3 minutes as a result. No big deal to us, but she upgraded us to the next best room to compensate us for... More

My buddy and i stayed at the Badger Motel (be advised: previously a Super 8---it came up on our GPS as a Super 8) on our way up to Minoqua..... Not too much to say about it as we were there just to crash as the road conditions were bad and it was getting late. Our room was a first... More
