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

I stayed here in March. Had to slam my door to close it and felt as if I stepped through a time machine when we walked into the room (and not in a good way). Seriously old bed frames, outdated bedding, a bathroom with just a shower and tiolet (the sink and counter space are located outside of the "bathroom")... More

We checked out a couple of hours after checking in. The smell of Pinesol and ammonia was causing headaches. The room was dark and dreary - very old. There was a bare pipe running the length of the room near the ceiling. When we complained about the odor at the front desk they said it was because of the pool... More

Ok, here's the deal... we needed a hotel in Wausau, but EVERYTHING was booked. Even the crappy Days Inn. BUT there were plenty of rooms open at the Plaza. We booked it. THEN we consulted Trip Advisor to see how awful the reviews were. We considered canceling and staying in another city nearby, but decided to just check it out... More
