We stayed here for a family wedding June 19 and 20 2015. Rooms were nice and big. Pool was good for grandkids, Only thing you could tell this was a family owned hotel. They tried to save money every way imaginable! Our fridge was not plugged in when we got there. No PB at breakfast and the cream cheese was... More

We came here after another lodging place "lost" our reservation. AmeriVu was fine--10:30pm last-minute check-in, 9:30am checkout. The mini-fridge was super loud but the rest of the hotel seemed quiet. We didn't eat breakfast or swim in the pool, but the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. $139 + tax seemed like a lot for the area, but... More

After reading the reviews, I now know why it's a 2 star hotel. We booked because the best western was full in Spooner. Lobby was decent- cute northern charm. The pool murky- but has slides for the family. The Hot Tub was a luke warm tub- gross.Hotel room= GROSS. Beds hard as a rock, there was a giant hole where... More

Screaming manager. Called us bigots. Lied about rooms being booked except for first floor in the loudest place. There were only 4 cars in the lot. We asked for a handicapped room for our grand child who has cerebral palsy. No such thing there according to him. We asked about the hotel chain management number so we could tell them... More

Arrived and was sent to a room that the heat had not been turned on. Even after turning on the heat, it took hours to feel some warmth. Was still very cold. The beds were very uncomfortable and the room was not well cleaned. Breakfast was cold cereal. Will never stay again. The total cost also had a hidden extra... More

Clean rooms, soft towels, china cups for coffee and most of all the nicest people operating the hotel. Great pool area for the kids and...even adults are welcome in the water. Don't be shy about asking for extras! The couple managing this delightful holiday hotel will bend over backwards to help you. Shell Lake is a very special spot with... More

The hotel was amazing. The pool area was fantastic. Our children had a blast. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that would be staying in the area. I would definately book here again. Thank you so much for a wonderful 2 days.

There was a very nice "lounge area" with a locked door so that it could not be used. Very strange?? This area could have also been used to make more room for a very crowded breakfast area. Breakfast was available from 6:00 am to 9:00 am. Very inconvenient for those who would like to sleep in some on a vacation... More

My husband and 2 boys stayed at this hotel about a month ago. The front desk was very helpful. We called for extra towels and pillows and within minutes of calling they were delivered. The hotel is a little dated but the beds were comfortable and the water stayed hot at peak times. The pool was great for such a... More
