I booked 4 rooms, staying 2 nights and all the rooms close to each other or at least the same floor as requested, Tracey the front desk lady was clear about my reservation. All I can say is WOW. Worst customer service I've ever gotten. When we checked in a little after 3pm, 3 rooms were 2nd floor and the... More

I come to portage at least 5 times a year. I called on 06-05-14. I talked to a gentleman name Joe. He was very polite and very helpful. I made a last minute reservation and hotel was quite full but he managed to find me a room to take care of all my needs. The pool was amazing and was... More

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 The place is outdated and has a strange look and feel to it.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
