After returning to this Inn for a decade we were appalled at what had happened here. I made or reservation the end of Aug. At that time they NEVER mentioned ongoing re construction! Over the decade we received AARP discounts or free pet fee..This time none were applied as she said we give you free breakfast after all..True it WAS.... More

Sorry for any problems. We care 100% about having 100% satisfied customers. We will work to communicate with our employees better on addressing the remodel and other concerns. Our remodel should be completed by November 21 2014 and we look forward to a better hotel lodge for our customers. As new local ( not corporate) owners as of 2014, we... More

Our family stayed in a townhouse in July 2014. We had a great stay and loved the woods surrounding the property! The staff was helpful and very friendly, especially Tammy! It was very clean and well stocked. We will stay here again and are looking forward to the great breakfast buffet we heard so much about.

Spacious modern rooms, quiet beautiful balconies, great rates and convince to Wausau make for a great Midwest destination. As a skier from the flatlands, I will be back this winter to give Rib Mountain a try.

Great spacious rooms- clean and well maintained with most remodeled recently. We had a fly in get together at Wausau airport and stayed over night before heading to the Great airshow in Oshkosh , Check it out if staying in the area.

Stayed at Rib Mountain Inn and was blown away at how nice it was. We had a 4 bedroom town house which was plenty of room for the 6 adults we had in our group. The beds were very comfortable and the house was immaculately clean. I will definitely stay here again if I am back in the Wassau area.

This was our first stay at the Rib Mountain Inn, and although they were in the middle of a remodeling project, we were very impressed. The room was large, clean, and had a wonderful view from the balcony. Although the Inn is close to town, it felt as though we were up north. We'll be back for sure!

Thanks for the stay. We are remodeling the facility, completing it in August 2014 and take pride in being one of the cleanest hotels in the area. We appreciate the "up north" compliment to the hotel. More

We stayed at this location to be close to Granite Peak. It was the closest hotel to the site but we still had to drive because the "path" was too far to walk with the equipment. The room was small, old and not particularly well kept. The common areas of the hotel were dirty and gross. To cover up the... More

The walk to the Ski Hill is 700 ft and next year we are planning a snow ride service. We are new owners as of March 2014 and are doing a new remodel. Sorry your stay was not as expected and we will work to be one of the best stays in Wausau area in the near future. More

Great location, short walk to Granite Peak ski resort. which made it nice not hassling with the car after a long day of skiing. Yes the rooms were dated but friendly staff at the front desk and during breakfast made our stay feel more like a mountain lodge than your typical hotel chain. New owner Mitch, shared his remodel and... More

Rented Villa 7 with a group of friends last weekend! Although a bit pricey, we rented this due to it's close proximity to Granite Peak Ski Area. The Villa was a bit spartan, but immaculately clean. It was WAY MORE spacious than expected. Sleeps 8 comfortably, but lots of room for air matresses if needed. The master closet was bigger... More
