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

Went for a basketball tournament and was so thoroughly disgusted!!! Water buckets, mold, no towels for the pool area, etc., etc., etc. The employees looked ragged. The carpeting was soiled. Very dated. You would think for a $109.00 it would be pretty nice....this hotel was worth $89.00 at best because it included a continental breakfast. I would NEVER recommend this... More

I had to stay at this hotel for a group function and was concerned when reading the reviews prior to my trip. Yes, the hotel is dated but found it pretty clean and everything was in working order. The hotel staff was very friendly. There is a very nice pool area for those who have children and some extra free... More

I understand that his hotel is cheap, so I guess you get what you pay for. Staff was nice. Room was old and run down. Restaurant had limited menu and they did not have half the things available. The room had an old tube TV. I was there for a weekend ski trip with friends, but I do travel a... More

I had a business class here. I needed a special table arrangement and they went the extra effort to do it right. I had a lot of material to haul in and they insisted on helping me. While I did not stay here, the appearance is not dated as some say and appeared in good repair. So judging on my... More

From the professional photos, this place looks okay. But, don't let them fool you, it's old and run down. It wasn't the worst thing I'd ever seen in my life, but, I wouldn't stay there again and I definitely wouldn't stay there by choice. We only got stuck there because of a unfortunate circumstance of every other hotel in the... More

I read all the reviews and have to admit I agree with many. But did find a few exceptions. This is an old, tired, property that probably was grand back in its day. There are some vintage chandeliers in the large public areas that harken back to another time a few decades past. Lobby area looks like it has been... More

This is my second time staying there as I attend a banquet there yearly. I found the staff both times to be extremely helpful and courteous. This ranges from the from desk help to the maid service to the banquet servers and the bartender in Austin's Lounge and her manager. I would recommend this place to anyone. The rooms are... More

I would recommend trying to find somewhere else. This hotel was very dated and dirty. The shower was rusty and the sliding glass door was so disgusting you could not see out of it. Half of the gym equipment was out of order. The whirlpool by the gym was broke. There was not a second arcade as listed. The arcade... More

The pros and cons of this hotel are as follows: The pool area is outstanding and I found the staff to be friendly. The rooms are dated and the sink is outside of the bathroom, so if you get up earlier that someone else in the room, there is the light on waking the other. Also, for some reason the... More
