Don't stay here. Employee smoking in front if guests. Same employee making inappropriate "jokes" about drinking on the clock to guests. Most employees were rude and didn't acknowledge me walking through the halls or at check in or check out- seemed like they were avoiding eye contact at all costs...and like I was bothering them. Musty smell in the room.... More

I was in town for my daughter's softball tournament. Friday and Saturday night stay. The front desk clerk when we got there wasn't rude but wasn't friendly either. To me, Customer Service is key to a great review. The rooms were a little dated but clean. We were gone for the whole day on Saturday and came back to a... More

First off, they painted an indoor pool without ventilation and didn't feel the need to let guests know ahead of time. This caused myself and my boyfriend to have headaches for 2 after we left. The fumes were horrible. The carpets were crusty, stained, and blackened from age and bad upkeep. The staff was not helpful when I stated my... More

We arrived here as a family, for a weekend getaway to Wausau. We had heard good things about the hotel, but unfortunately, we have not had anything near a good experience in this hotel. It started with when we walked in-- the hotel neglected to notify us that the pool was closed for painting, and would be closed for "a... More

We were here 5 years ago for a convention, swore we'd never come back. Tried again for another large group meeting, and found nothing had changed. Musty, smelled old, restaurant not open on Friday night, although hotel was full; one bartender/waitress/bus person in very full bar; no towels in the pool at 8 AM on Sunday for over 1-1/2 hours,...

A general room was small, outdated in decor. We stayed for a ski weekend. HANNAH at the front desk was great. Peeling paint, rips in upholstery, wobbly chair arm, maintenance tools left upstairs in a corner.. I just notice little things, if that's not a big deal, then book a room & try it, the price was pretty low.

Used to be Wausau's premier hotel. No more. Evening desk clerk was indifferent, bordering on rude. Morning clerk was a delight. Room was tired. Heat unit noisy. Furniture old and scuffed. No capital improvements here in at least 20 years. Breakfast very spartan.I'll not go back.

After being promised a late checkout to return from our funeral we found our belongings removed from the room without being there. This hotel was filthy and dated and in bad need of repair. I would not recommend this hotel or their lack of customer service.

The rooms were clean and quiet. Hallways needed cleaning and painting. In speaking with some of their staff they are spending the money to get the place in better shape. The pool area looked clean and relaxing.

There are a variety of decent quality and reasonably priced hotels in the Wausau area! This is NOT one of them. The photos were very deceiving... All public areas are neglected and unclean. It looks like there has not been a vacuum run in weeks. The rooms are dated and again just not clean. The hot tub was out of... More
