“Kenosha Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Hotel was suggested to me by a couple of people familiar with Kenosha. It's a nice convenient place to stay downtown, right on harbor, places to walk, several smaller restaurants, taverns, shops. Facility is nice but older place, but rooms seem to be kept up and upgraded. 1st floor rooms are quite large and brand new, but more $$$ and can't see the waterfront area as well. Must have harbor view room! Was there 3 different weeks in August/September. Pool and exercise room were closed due to renovations, but can't say I had the time or interest to do either. Besides, the harbor and park area is too nice not to get out and take nice long walks. Free breakfast is good, just enough to get you going in the morning. When I go back to Kenosha, I would stay there again.

We look forward to your return trip. Renovations are still going on. (we have a large facility and 10,000 square feet of conference space to renovate but the end result will be amazing.

I love the harbour view. I love that the harbour is finally coming back slowly. They have great but limited restaurants. The little shopps downtown are nice. In close proximaty of three museums turned out to be handy. I will keep coming back for the lake view.

The hotel was undergoing massive renovations, but the view from our room overlooking the Kenosha harbor and marina was spectacular. The complementary breakfast was plentiful and provided a large variety of food. Our room, booked on-line, was well worth the price. The hotel also is convenient to a large number of restaurants and coffee shops. You can rent a bike and ride around the harbor.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the harbor.

The Best Western Harbor side Inn and Suites in Kenosha WI charged us $189 a night for what appeared to be a $50 a night hotel. I booked several rooms for a family trip and was embarrassed when we arrived. Basically the place needs torn down and rebuilt.

I am sorry you felt the hotel was over priced for your trip. The rates like all hotels and even other hospitality industries will vary based on several demands.

The best of this hotel is it's exceptional location right on the harbor of Kenosha.
We had a room giving on the back ( much cheaper) but very quiet and comfortable.
The staff was extremely nice and friendly. There are bikes for rent, that we used for a tour around this lovely town. Pool in repair, but very well situated and clear.
Some negative points: a TV set in the room dating from before the dinosaurs, a very small fringe and no microwave. No restaurant at the hotel ( but plenty around)
The Wifi internet connection does not work at all in the room.
Overall, the hotel is very nice but old and needs a serious makeover

Room Tip: Wonderful view for rooms on the east side on the harbour, much better fare if you take a room on the...

Thank you for staying with us. The hotel is under renovations and has plans for a restaurant and the biggest high light to the renovations is that we are installing WIFI. The hotel has always only had hardwire in the rooms. The bike rental is new this summer and I am glad to hear you enjoyed the relaxing tour around the lake front we hope to see you again soon

Older hotel- kind of musty smelling. Need renos but they are in the process of completing some, I believe. My parents had a "non-smoking" room that smelled terribly of smoke- they were given another room upon complaining. Breakfast was decent- standard continental fare. Pool is closed due to major renovations so my kids were very disappointed because they were talking about using the pool all the way to the hotel. This was not mentioned on the website when we booked. Wouldn't stay here again.

I apologize about your stay not being to your standards. The hotel is in need of renovations and we are in the mist of renovations. It is an exciting but long process due to the fact of the large facility. We hope that once we are completed that you stay with us again.

My husband and I booked a romantic getaway. The Grill Games were in Kenosha, and it sounded different and fun. Although the motel is currently under renovation, which was inconvenient, I'd highly recommend a harbor view room if you go. It's a pretty scene and there are nice areas to walk and explore near the motel.
