Room Tip: this motel and staff could not get any better...The family suite is the best...plenty of things for...

Susan, we are very glad to hear that you, your husband, and grandkids enjoyed your time with us. We provide a variety of amenities and information for our guests whether it be a family or an individual traveling alone. Our very kid friendly pool area allows both children and adults to enjoy themselves as well as the restaurant. We hope you took advantage of the discount and kids eat free coupons for the Green Mill. We hope to see you and your grandkids soon!

My husband, my older son and I were traveling back to Washington state from a family vacation in Illinois. We found ourselves in a terrible rainstorm beginning about LaCrosse, Wisconsin continuing on into Minnesota. It was dark, two way traffic due to road construction and our drivers side windshield wiper didn't work. We pulled off the road at the Winona sign and decided not to continue on. We drove down the hill into town and found a Holiday Inn Express which my husband checked with but they only had a suite left and it seemed very pricey. We checked next door at The Plaza and they had a room at a reasonable price so in we went. The room was very spacious and well appointed. There were three sinks, two in the bathroom. Two TV's, my husband enjoyed the one in the bathroom while he shaved. The staff was friendly and helpful and we had a delicious breakfast in the connecting restaurant where I had the best ham I have ever eaten. The staff was very friendly and we explored the town and visited the Mississippi River before we continued on.

Every year I bring our track team to the Plaza Hotel for the Wisconsin State Track Meet held in La Crosse, WI. Every year Cindy and her staff out do themselves with their outstanding customer service and, kind treatment of our coaches and athletes. The Green Mill restaurant has a wide variety of food at great prices, and the quality is top notch. I was sold after my first stay and refuse to stay anywhere else. The rooms are very spacious, the pool and hot tub are great, and the fitness room has everything you need to get a great work out. You will not find better customer service, or a more caring staff than you will at the Plaza Hotel in Winona!

As our hotel is approximately 25 miles away from the event in La Crosse each year, we truly appreciate the loyalty of the teams that choose to make the beautiful trip along the Mississippi River to stay with us. The pleasure is all ours - we're looking forward to having you back again next Spring!

We enjoyed our stay here in a King Suite . Very well located and the attached restaurant The Green Mill made it very convenient. We stayed on top floor where it was very quiet. We were afraid that with the restaurant that they wouldn't have coffee in the morning , but they did in the lobby. The room was clean and comfortable with a nice view. Staff was very helpful in terms of directions and town info. Would definitely stay again on next trip !

Room Tip: Upper floor to cut down on noise from Rt. 61

Well our room was clean, the beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful. We never were bothered by noise and the price was reasonable but the one reason we would certainly return was the pool. There is the sweetest little kiddie pool by the regular pool with slides and everything! Our oldest is already wondering when we can go back.

Another thing we liked was that you could go to their on site restaurant (the Green Mill) and order a hot breakfast.

I've stayed here often over the few years and it is a nice 3 star hotel. The rooms are a good size and are comfortable. There is also a pool. The location is so-so because you need to walk across the highway to get to Target and Walmart (there are lights but regardless, it is inconvenient). Downtown Winona is not too convenient to walk to. It is close to the lake though, which is nice (again, you still need to walk across the road).

Built upon the backwaters of the Mississippi River, the town of Winona is indeed located in a very picturesque area of Minnesota. Surrounded by the Bluffs of the Mississippi River, Winona is in the only area of the Mississippi River that runs east! US Highway 61 courses through Winona, and The Plaza Hotel and Suites is conveniently located on the east end of town. Winona itself is spread over an area 8 miles long by 3 miles wide. For your safety, taking a vehicle to cross the highway is highly recommended, please note that taxi service is available for your next trip to Winona. We hope to have you back to see us soon!
