We stayed here during Badger State Games. Although it is nice that they have pool side rooms and a large pool area, the rest of the place is less than desirable. Carpet is very stained and worn. Bathrooms are small. Ceiling leaks in the hallway and pool areas. On a positive note, they did have a microwave and nice size... More

But after arriving we found out the hot tubs were out of order. as we were checking in after finding out about... More

Bored, sleepy staff , cold water in the pool, hot tub broken all the time, seems like they do not care about guests at all and they do not care about reviews either. Be careful!!!!! Do not use your debt card!!!!! they do not inform you when you book a room but when you arrived there is a sign that... More

Have stayed at hotels for half the price that have been way better. The heat for the indoor pool was off, the entry lock for outside door closest to room was not working. There were a lot of areas that were in need of repair and upgrading. Simply said not worth the money

Not a horrible hotel, with traveling the country I find that I have been in far worse hotels with far worse problems. The food in the restaurant is amazing! I recommend their freshly made cheese curds and a plaza burger. Top Notch. Their bar is awesome as well, with a pool table, jukebox, and darts.

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean room. On site bar and restaurant is a plus. Food was very good. Nice pool and spa area only the pool could have been a little warmer. Hotel is showing it's age in spots but overall a pleasant stay.

Unfortunately , this Hotel wasnt cleaned for years before our stay, the chlorine from the old pool was overwhelming, burning our eyes and nostrils . the queen bed was probably 30 yrs old and left us hobbling out the door in the a.m. never again. Horrible and sad

If you can imagine a hotel that opened during the 80's, decorated to the nines, and then allowed to deteriorate into a complete mess over 30 years, this is that place. If you don't mind buckling carpet, leaky ceilings, sketchy bathrooms and staff that seem to be more enthusiastic about the prospect of oral surgery than assisting guests, then by... More

I found a dead flea on the sheets. The water in the shower was yellow. They let me change my room with an upgrade at no charge. The housekeepers never came, the pillow smelled like Ben Gay, and the toilet would not flush! I left and found a new hotel. GROSS!

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
