I ended up in this hotel on a work trip with 9 foreign delegates and two intepreters after the Bad River hotel misplaced our reservation and had no rooms available. We all agreed it was a switch for the better. While it's clear that the interior (rooms and common areas of lobby and hallways) have not been updated since this hotel's heyday, it is still somewhat charming, and the staff was so accomdating and friendly that I didn't mind the outdated decor. The best part of the hotel are the two decks (upper and lower) overlooking Lake superior and a lovely marina.
Surprisingly good food at the hotel restaurant (lots of fresh fish options that come right out of the lake) with generous portions. My delegates thought it was strange that such a nice restaurant with cloth napkins and higher priced entrees would serve tartar sauce/salad dressing in plastic cups, but it didn't even occur to me- I was too busy enjoying my blackened walleye dinner!
"Continental" breakfast was included in price of the room, which happily included hardboiled eggs, yogurt cups, and peanut butter in addition to the normal continental fare. A local told me that this is a new feature, so I hope they continue offering such a nice breakfast.
While the hotel is by no means chic, but definitely a bit shabby, I enjoyed my stay and always rate customer service as one of the most important parts of a hotel stay, especially on a business trip. For that, they receive 5 stars from me for accomodating a large group on short notice, honoring the government rate, and having the keys and paperwork ready for all the rooms when we arrived a half hour after I booked the rooms. It also seemed to be the most scenic option in Ashland.
