In this part of rural Wisconsin finding a nice place to stay can be somewhat of a challenge, so we were delighted to find the Hotel Hillsboro on a recent travel back to our home town of Elroy for a funeral. Formerly a Sleep Inn, the owners decided not to renew the franchise and instead put their money into a great restaurant and bar adjacent to the hotel, which definitely contributed to a pleasant stay. The decor in Beezers Restaurant is "Northwoods" with knotty pine walls, high ceilings and a cozy atmosphere. They serve steaks, fish, burgers, salads, and prime rib on Saturday nights. We were part of a large table of 10 people and everyone remarked that their meal was good or excellent. Our room was spotless and well maintained, check-in was efficient, and although we didn't use the pool it looked clean and inviting. Hotel Hillsboro has a very nice continental breakfast with a wide selection of food choices along with nice little touches like homemade cinnamon rolls. From now on the Hotel Hillsboro will be our first choice to stay when we journey back home again.
