“Family Reunion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Had a most enjoyable Family Reunion and High School Reunion (both) at Hotel Chequamegon. Staff were almost universally cordial and helpful. First Rate. Restaurant is fine and affordable, rooms are quiet and clean.

We really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is ornate and the view over Lake Superior was wonderful. We were very happy with the room and the decor. The deck behind the attractive lobby was perfect for a late afternoon cocktail. The food in the restaurant was good and the bar was cozy and comfortable. We plan to return for a longer stay next year.

Thank you for choosing our property with such a Superior view. Molly Cooper's Restaurant is a great way to enjoy dinner or a cocktail right on the shore of Lake Superior. Thank you again for staying with us, and we look forward to your future say here at The Hotel Chequamegon-Best Western.

The hotel Chequamegon is beautifully appointed with comfortable rooms and friendly staff. I always stay there when in Ashland. The views of Lake Superior are wonderful. I like the walkability of the city and area surrounding the hotel.

With a larger family it is always hard to find a hotel that will accommodate us. This room was just what we needed. However, the bathroom was the opposite, very small, but had everything you would need, just not a lot of space. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choices including a pancake maker. Not so excited about the coffee but that could have been the type of cups. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Beautiful view of the marina.

Thank you for choosing the Hotel Chequamegon- Best Western as your hotel of choice in Ashland, Wisconsin. We are very fortunate to have fourteen different room styles to accommodate different family sizes. We recently have added a fresh fruit platter to the breakfast menu. Once again, thank you for staying with us.

Nice refurbishing of a historic hotel, with the original lobby. Great location on the shore of Lake superior, great sunsets from the deck outside the restaurant (excellent food, too!). Rooms are tastefully remodeled, clean and quiet. Two negatives are limited parking and only one slooowwww elevator, which has to be used by the cleaning staff as well, which can cause a bit of delay when departing. Stairwells are nice, though!

Beautiful old-style waterfront hotel. Everyone on the staff was super friendly - even housekeeping staff. Rooms were spacious and clean with nice lighting. Nice breakfast with pancakes, omelets and cut fruit. Close to Apostle Islands seashore. Wish we had more than one night.

When you walk into the hotel you feel as if you are going back in time. The décor is dated and 1940's music fills the air. Our room had tall ceilings, nice beds, a tiny bathroom, and needed vacuuming (we found a sewing needle stuck in the carpet). The restaurant in the lower level of the hotel served very good food and we ate on the outside balcony with a view of Lake Superior. The included continental breakfast had a variety of items to choose from. The swimming pool was on the cool side, but the hot tub was hot. The poor rating is due to staffs could not care less attitude. Staff needs training in customer service. If you are the kind of person that seeks paranormal activity, this would be a good destination. Plenty of activity throughout the night.
