I admit the decision to stay at Ridge Motor Inn was based on proximity to the local hospital but the decision to return was based on the excellent service. I have been at Ridge Motor Inn for almost 9 months total and I love it! The front desk staff have always been very attentive to my needs and extremely courteous!... More

We purchased their ski package for 3 which was a Saturday night stay in a room with two queen beds, one free 8 hr flex lift ticket and each additional ticket priced at $25 for a total package price of $125. If you purchase lift tickets at Cascade... More

I stayed at the Ridge Motor Inn some months ago while I was working in Portage. When I arrived I saw a gang of men loitering outside the front door who looked like drug dealers or welfare cases. I was told they were actual motel guests! I was met at the front desk by a surly clerk with two-toned hair... More

We arrived around 10 pm for check in. Our room was located in the far back area of the motel. The decor is dated and there are some stains on the floor. It could use a little paint and maintenance, but it was far from the filth infested Bates motel type ordeal one would expect from the other reviews.The beds... More

I would not recommend this place as a first choice. We arrived 1/2-hour early before check-in and waited for someone to come to the counter. We were then told no rooms were ready. The woman at the front desk said check-in was at 3:00 which we had no problem with. We took our motorcycles back out (after all day of... More

The rooms have nice carpet and were clean. Although somewhat of a strange odor. The air conditioner was already on before we got there so that was nice. Has good access to shopping (walmart), banking and food. The place is outdated and has a strange look and feel to it. Not a place I would want to stay with the... More

The Ridge Motor Inn in Portage, WI is nasty. We had already paid for the room in advance and if I had know more about this motel in advance, I would have changed my plans. From the start, upon our arrival the front desk clerk was out front smoking and smelled like stale cigarettes. Rather ditzy in my opinion she... More

My husband and I are from Virginia and we went there for a little over 2 months for his work. We stayed at the Ridge and we really enjoyed it. It was great to have a pool and hot tub and also a full fitness club downstairs. Overall, I think it is a nice place for the price that you... More
