“Nice quaint and different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

This was a very nice hotel - and a surprise to me. It is different than a chain hotel so has a few less amenities, but the staff was very nice, the decor is distinctive and upgraded. The restaurant was very good as well.

Would recommend for a business trip

This used to be called the Beloit Inn, but, now is under new management, I guess. I have stayed here many times. The staff was friendly, but the hotel has several problems. The first is one elevator which is very slow and is also used for the service elevator. I guess there are stairs somewhere, but I couldn't find them. Someone said you have to go outside to use them…sounds like a fire hazard to me. Food in the restaurant is good, but the free b-fast in the mornings is very mediocre.

Can walk to Beloit college. Very expensive.

Newly remodeled rooms in a retro (Ironworks) style (circa 1900's) is charming. The rooms are gigantic (and this was only a single queen bed too!). Rooms have a gas fireplace in the center which is two sided and above he fireplace are two 50" TV's one on each side. The hotel is on the river and across the river are industrial buildings no longer in use that have lighted giant graphics of workers and industrial operations of 50 years ago. (very artistic) Great place to take a walk along the river. We walked our scotty dog along the river and we both loved it. (the hotel is small pet friendly). On the lower level is the hotels large restaurant which is excellent...at least 4 stars. We were seated looking across the river at the lighted artworks. This was our fourth stay (we are Florida snowbirds) at this hotel and it was great even before they remodeled.

Room Tip: Reserve early. rooms get filled quickly in this premium hotel.

I don't have to go to Beloit that often, but when I do I will stay at the Ironworks! The room was spacious, had a fireplace (!!!) and a bathtub that made my daughter jealous! The beds were great, had great pillows. The shower was huge! I enjoyed the leather couch and two flat panel tv's! Breakfast was included in the room and was awesome. The hotel is on the river. It was a great experience!

Completely unexpected beauty in Beloit. All renovation is now done too and hotel looks absolutely stunning and was great to stay at. The decor apparently was inspired by the Iron Horse hotel in Milwaukee which I can say is the best place to stay in Milwaukee.

There's nothing "run of the mill" with this hotel - the decor and furniture are all customized from around the local area, beds are really comfy and rooms very tastelfully decorated. You even get Aveda shower products to bathe with.

They also offer a complimentary shuttle service to and from anywhere within 10 miles of the hotel. That's service for you.

For Beloit, a place like this is unbelievable and even in a bigger city, this hotel would be hard to beat for aesthetics and value.

Room Tip: 4th Floor was renovated just last week so are currently the "newest"

What a hidden gem in Beloit. The Iron Works theme works. Wonderful sophisticated decor. Right on the Rock River. Great views. Very please with the price point. Aveda products in the room. Very nice restaurant attached although they need better rum.
