“Ice Caves”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We got lucky as there must have been a cancellation and we were able to stay at this hotel for our visit to see the Ice Caves on the Apostle Islands. Very comfortable accommodations. Didn't have a chance to use the pool. Wished we could have upgraded to a King Suite. Would definitely stay here again. I imagine it is so beautiful in the summer as it overlooks Lake Superior.

Not exactly your usual seasonal tourist mecca with sub-zero temps on the south shore of Lake Superior, "Who would've thought" this would turn out as one of the best mid-winter mini-vacations we have taken. We knew that 88% of the Great Lakes were covered in ice. We came to see the Red Cliff Ice Caves that appear infrequently and were featured in the local news. Friends had visited earlier and gave enthusiastic reviews of the Ice Caves and the Hotel Chequamegon. Neither were exaggerated. One can read about the Ice Cliffs on-line. The hotel deserves special recognition. Net-Net, Exceptionally clean, comfortable, quiet, well staffed with people who care and take pride in their service and are eager to please. Kudos to the chef and manager.

Reserved a room two weeks in advance. Were to stay there for three nights Thursday - Sunday while in the area to see the Ice Caves. After checking into our room (Room 112) we heard a loud knocking in the walls, like construction work was being done in the adjacent room. Disregarded it as such and went out for dinner. Upon returning from dinner, the noise persisted. Tried to ignore it and sleep through it. No chance. The knocking continued all night; we didn't sleep. Awoke early to head to the ice caves and inquired at the front desk on Friday morning about changing rooms for the remainder of our stay. The night attendant seemed aware of the issue, which had been brought up by other guests. However, he didn't seem at all interested in helping us and we were eventually told that there were no options. So we checked out and were left trying to find alternate accommodations for the remainder of the weekend. Not the relaxing getaway we'd planned. In addition, the four pillows on the bed were small squares that appeared to be filled with small cotton puffs - very uncomfortable.

I apologize that your stay did not meet your expectations. I further apologize if you felt our front desk staff was limited in assisting you as the property was sold out and there were no other room options on the available. Our maintenance staff did indicate a bad belt on a fan that moves air throughout the first floor and they did immediately make the repair. If you would like to stay at our property in the future; please do not hesitate to contact me directly to assist in your reservation.

I am happy to hear that you believe we fit in the Best Western family. Each property is privately owned and we work very hard to achieve BW standards. Thank you so much for the wonderful compliments and staying with us! I do hope we see you again!

Stayed at this hotel to see the ice caves. It was a very nice experience. It was cold and we were able to stay at the hotel and not venture out once we arrived. The restaurant served a good variety and the wait staff was very good. The hot tub was not really hot, but it was -15. The room was a little small, but it worked fine for us.

This hotel is in a good spot to walk downtown. We went there for the ice caves and had a pleasant time. The reception staff are very nice and helpful. The woodwork and ceilings are beautiful. My complaints: the bed was squeaky and kept me up all night, the toilet paper and tissues leave much to be desired and the breakfast room attendant is a little crabby. The breakfast is actually good for a continental.

Loved it! Staff is very friendly. Breakfast was good & plentiful. Great lounging options for hanging out with friends. Would definitely stay here again, would like to see what it's like in summer b/c it's right on the water.

Coming back in the summer is well worth the trip. As you know we sit right on Lake Superior and have the walking trail right out the back of the property; a perfect setting for an evening stroll. Thank you so much for choosing us!
