We had several issues with our reservations as the property transitioned to new ownership. Our reservations were cancelled without our knowledge and then dates were changed as well. If we had not called to confirm we would have shown up to no rooms. The common area is very nice for groups/families. However, if you don't have a group contract good... More

We have stayed here several times to ski at Granite Peak. We have never had any issues, but this year it seemed that the transition to the new ownership by Quality Inn had the hotel unprepared for a busy holiday weekend. The biggest issue was the temperature in the atrium by the pool. While typically warm and comfortable for swimming... More

My family and I had a terrible experience while trying to stay at this property. We were first put into room 203 which was fine until the bar downstairs started to play rap music with excessive bass that woke up our 15 month-old son and kept both my wife and I up. On top of the loud music from downstairs... More

Very friendly place so close to Rib Mountain. You can literally walk to Granite peak. They have nice pool, hot tub (too bad it is only one for all guests), 2 pool tables. Rooms are clean I cannot say much about breakfast because we did not eat there but I recommend Vino Latte place which is 4 miles away from... More

The stay at Midway Hotel was all you could ask for. The staff was very friendly. A free shuttle ride to and from Granite Peak. Pool area included a hot tub, pool tables and a ping pong table. Rooms were clean and comfortable. No reason to stay anywhere else for the money being so close to the slopes. A five... More

The great experience my sister and I received from manager Chartier made the whole trip worth it! Our friends Vodegel and Jesus stayed as well and they couldn't have been happier. Would recommend this hotel to anyone just because of their manger chartier.

We stayed there 3 nights due to a death in the family and we could not have asked for more! The front desk Brogan and Carrie were above and beyond. The breakfast hostess Kari was great too. These are 3 employees that need to stay and will bring more business in just by having them there!

We rented two rooms for three days for 5 adults. First observation in our room was that the cleanliness was just acceptable. Linens and towels fresh and clean but sink and tub were marginal. Room was comfortable temperature wise but temperature outside was dropping so we turned up the thermostat. When we awoke the next morning the room temperature was... More

The bed was comfortable and I liked the layout of the bathroom. The room appeared clean. The staff were VERY friendly, acknowledged me as i walk past, and were available when needed. However, the heater/AC didn't work and I had to leave the window open all night (no screen). The bathroom sink didn't have warm water, and the outside door... More

QualityInnWausau, General Manager at Midway Hotel, responded to this review

I apologize for your lack of hot water in your sink. As far as the heat in your room I'm not exactly sure how to help with it. Since you have left we have had multiple people stay in the room after you without complaints about the heater in the room. At this time the restaurant, which is leased to... More

I just attended a banquet at the Midway Lodge and I can honestly say I've never seen such poor service in my life. Inadequate staff and portions, I'll never set foot in there again! There has to be a better choice in Wausau.

QualityInnWausau, General Manager at Midway Hotel, responded to this review

I'm very sorry that you had a poor experience. The restaurant and banquet rooms are leased to a private lessee. He is responsible for staffing and quality of service on that side. Once again I am sorry for your poor experience, just know that there is nothing that management at the hotel can do to resolve this issue. More
