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A general room was small, outdated in decor.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

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
