Stopped for just 1 night. The young lady at reception was quick to greet us and get us settled into our room. On her recommendation we visited a pub downtown which was great. We had a quiet room and great nights sleep. Would stay here again if I'm in the area.

We had reserved a room for 6/28/14 and when we went to check in they stated we did not have a reservation for that night. I had to print out my confirmation to prove I did. I did not like being told it was my error when I knew I had the email confirmation. After some research it was determined... More

My nephew and I stayed in the hotel for a weekend in mid June and very much enjoyed our stay. We were in town for the many miles of biking trails and State Parks in the area. Very helpful and friendly staff and very comfortable rooms made our stay very worthwhile. They even let us keep our expensive bicycles in... More

A nice quiet room, a friendly and very helpful staff made it for a restful night. Everything you want to eat or places to shop are close at hand with a very knowledgeable staff. They picked out a superb local restaurant for dinner. Easy on and off I-90. Worth the stay if you are close to La Crosse, WI

Very accommodating short stay as we travel east to home. Quiet. Off the main street. Very cool pancake maker designed like a copy machine... the kids would love it! Nice breakfast choices for the rest of the family. Clean, well kept food area. I'd still want to have more nutritional choices i.e. less sugar, fats, sodium. Thats me though and... More

This hotel has made a lot of very nice modifications for the last two years. The only downside is still the pool and hot tub area. Not that that is not functional just not updated. The exercise room has been updated and is now fairly adequate. Decent place to stay in the outskirts of La Crosse Wisconsin.
