This is a lovely place to enjoy watching the trains go by (yes - day AND night) and boating (including barges) on the river. The room was clean and comfortable. A small refrigerator was included. This is not a new hotel by any means but it is clean, and maintained. No evidence of neglect or maintenance issues. The innkeeper was... More

This was our second visit to Inn on the River, this time bringing along about 15 people on a bird watching tour along the Mississippi River. We were very pleased with the accommodations, their readiness to receive us when we all arrived together as well as meeting some specific requests. Yes, the Inn is old but reasonably maintained. These building... More

This was a last minute reservation on a weekend Fall Colors watching trip. The literature in the room notes that over # 40 trains pass by every day. What they forgot to mention is that it is day and night. Train track is less than # 50 yards (approx.) from the front of the hotel. All rooms face the tracks... More

This vintage hotel nestled in the bluffs of the is like taking a step back in time. It was August and every flower was in bloom, which skyrocketed the cute factor. Trains chugged past frequently, but horns did not blow a lot right there. Barges slipped up and down the river, bicycles abounded. The hotel had coffee, ice from the... More

We did not call ahead for reservations as we did not know where we were going to end up as we drove north along the Mississippi River on the Wisconsin side. We were on our way to Perrot State Park as we passed this place and we liked how the balconies faced the river. When we came back out of... More

I decided to stay here because of the location. My boyfriend is a train enthusiast and this hotel is across the road from tracks with trains going north and south at all times of the day and night. We had a second floor room #26. It is a nice sized room with a king bed, balcony with table and chairs,... More

Just spent the Memorial Day weekend with my girlfriend at this hotel in downtown Trempealeau. The location is fantastic- directly across the street from the river on Main St.!! For a small-town motel, we LOVED IT! It's an older motel with 12 rooms but it is kept up nicely and very clean with WiFi included. The view overlooking the Mississippi... More

The Inn Keeper was very nice and helped us with were to go to eat and local entertainment for the evening. The Inn is located across the street from the railroad tracks and the Mississippi River.

This is a worn small motel in a small town along the Mississippi River in a town just north of LaCrosse Wisconsin. The flowers on the grounds are gorgeous - and the weeds are abundant. The view is outstanding of the river and bluffs... very pretty. Views are equally impressive from the first floor or second floor. The rooms are... More

Trains are the main reason we come, not a "downside" as one review commented. Current owner has turned a tired old motel into a very good one, with good beds and amenities. The balconies overlooking the river, railroad(40+ highspeed trains/day), lock and dam with frequent tow boats locking through and wildlife are all pluses.We drive down from the TC in... More
