I've stayed here a few times. Trucker rates are fabulous. Rooms are very clean. Joe is great and makes sure I have everything I need. Dino's restaurant has great food with large servings. The omelets are fantastic. Nick and his family staff the restaurant and are very friendly. I definitely recommend this motel to all drivers needing a quiet place... More

LOVE THIS PLACE! Very clean although it could use an update. Have stayed a couple of times now. Pricing is fantastic. Staffing is FABULOUS!! Joe goes out of his way to make us feel welcomed and he has a great sense of humor too as well as has granted any requests we made. When you are there ask Steve how... More

I was looking for a place to stay for a week while relocating for work to this area, and Ridge Motor Inn beat the next-closest low rate by nearly $15 a night. I stayed by myself in what I was told was the 'worker' rooms, meaning those that were not remodeled but still functional. I'll say that for the rate... More

First off, if you're looking for a 5 star hotel don't bother. The building is dated and the place could use some tlc. However, for about 75 bucks a night there is a lot of good things to say about it. It has a full fitness center below. Older equipment but lots of weights, treadmills, ellipticals, and even a room...

Front desk service was great, room was clean with new carpet. Wifi was strong. Pool and hot tub were wonderful. Free coffee all day, no breakfast, but there is an attached restaurant, and several nearby. Can't beat it for the price. We'll stay here again.

Clean facility but needs an overall update. Exterior security never was operational. :( Exhaust fan in bath was extremely noisy. Door had to be shut to use it. Lighting fixtures were broken. Carpet at door thresholds worn and pulled away. No hair dryer in room. No free breakfast provided. It was an old Best Western, now it's an older Worst... More

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
