We stayed at the Swiss Aire while skiing at Tryol Ski area. My husband has stayed here twice before this trip. We had a room with one queen beed. Or room was impecable, new carpet and new paint, good size. Furniture was in very good condition. The beed was very comfortable. There's a coffee maker and coffee in the room... More

When I checked in, the lady had the personality of a wet noodle. There was a huge cat in the lobby, which wouldn't have bothered me if I had known about the place being pet-friendly ahead of time. (Like when I booked the reservation, I should have been told). The bathroom had hair everywhere! Behind the faucet, in tub, on... More

Everything was just fine here. Had to ride bike or drive to eat supper downtown but Bowling Alley bar was walking distance. Stayed 2 nights and all went well. Interesting little area--well worth investigating.

The location of this property is very appealing. It's walking distance to New Glarus and the bike trail. We were there for Oktoberfest, so it was packed! Rooms are a bit outdated, but fairly spacious and they were CLEAN. It is a roadside motel, so with the window open there is some traffic noise. The hotel property has a nice... More

We were very disappointed with our stay here. The staff were very disinterested. The sound of water running in the adjacent rooms was very loud and the road noise was also loud. The bed was uncomfortable. The towels were small, dingy-looking and thin. In short, too many negatives & few positives.

Room was clean and it had all the basics-including the tiny bar of soap and tiny towels. This is a really old strip style motel that you see along every highway. It was quiet but probably only because no one else was staying there that night. Rooms had been only superficially remodeled a few years ago but I could still... More

Just spent 3 nights at the Swiss Aire Motel, it was a very pleasant stay. The staff was very polite and helpful on things to see and do. It is right on the bike path. Next time we go to New Glarus, we will stay there again.

Stopped through New Glarus for a short stay, stayed at the Swiss Aire Motel. This is your older "roadside" hotel, with rooms you can drive right up to. Many of these have seen better days, but the Swiss Aire has obviously been updated within the last couple of years. The have updated the bathrooms, the flooring, the walls, and the... More

If you are traveling to New Glarus, WI, you might check out the Swiss-Aire Motel as a lodging option. We recently stayed one-night on our trip to northwest Wisconsin. The motel is located conveniently along Highway 69 between Monroe, WI and Madison, WI. Very clean accomodations, cordial hosts, and reasonable rates.

This is a super cute little motel, with all new rooms. The new owners have really improved the property and New Glarus is a great town to visit. Highly recommend it.
