The hotel had been one of the choices for those not staying at the Green Lake Conference Center. We were attending a week conference on World Mission. The room were dated but refreshed with new wallpaper and somewhat new furniture, the bed were surprisingly comfortable and the owner.manager Bo was a wealth of good conversation and ready to help.

Very clean. The hotel was a dated however, Bo the manager/owner, went out of his way to accommodate myself and co-worker when we got kicked out of a different local hotel because they over booked. The lounge was closed, which was disappointing. There is a store & fast food restaurant next door. Located in downtown within walking distance to fine... More

While the outside is beautiful, the interior fixtures are nice and the people where nice, the lack of some basic amenities is damning. The rooms seem to need upgrading, the beds are rather old and somewhat uncomfortable. The television is an old style and small at that. More important though is the lack of in room coffee pots which means... More

The staff was amazing and helpful in every way. My room was very comfortable and cozy. I got great wifi signal, shower felt great! Very clean. Exercise room came in handy. I would say it is a pleasant hotel, made me feel like home.

Ripon is a small town with very few options for lodging. We were visiting this lovely area for the first time for a wedding. I originally booked this hotel due to reviews on Tripadvisor, as they are my go to for travel. While the staff was very helpful in every way possible, it is very apparent that the owner of... More

This is a diamond in the rough! If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay without breaking the bank, the Welcome Inn is the place to stay. I was able to make last minute reservations on a busy weekend. Very clean, easy to find, and the owners and employees are very friendly! You can tell they really enjoy... More

We stayed at the hotel in January. There is a banquet hall and bar in the lower level where we were guests for a 50th B-Day party many people were staying at the hotel so we decided to stay instead or driving back to Chicago. The room was comfortable and there is a small breakfast in the morning. Staff is... More

We stayed here during the Oskosh Airventure and were very happy with the accommodations. Room was very clean, beds were comfortable, and our requests for extra soap and towels was responded to immediately. We were looking for a good, basic hotel at an affordable price. This one filled all our needs. Would stay there again.

We stay at this hotel during EAA AirVenture every year. Since we're at that event most of the day, we basically just need a place to clean up and sleep. This fits the bill. Honestly, pretty much everything needs to be replaced. I'm talking mattresses, furniture, carpet, TV, etc.. The lobby and hallways could be brightened up a bit as... More
