“Not as young as I used to be”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

There was a youth group staying at our hotel the weekend we reserved rooms. Unfortunately, they were very loud and stayed up late. As a result, none of us slept well. And yes, we did alert security of the excess noise.

Whenever I stay anywhere, it is usually just a place to crash for the night. It was a convention headquarters selection and a poor choice on their part, but no fault of the hotel's. Adequate rooms. Breakfast is NOT complimentary and was OK for what it was. We found the accompanying bar closed by midnight on Saturday which left any convention goers not at yet another location which SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE HEADQUARTERS, lacking for a place to chill out before hitting the rack. They missed an extra chance at some additional money. As in a previous review, there were carpet stains, upholstery stains, but nothing to make me wince.

This hotel is getting old and needs a facelift. The room was clean enough and bed comfortable enough. And the rates were low enough in comparison to the newer hotels. So no major complaint. I stayed here because it was chosen by a group I am with. I would normally not choose a best western.

My husband and I went for a fall romantic weekend in October. The room was beautiful with a sideways view of the Mississippi. Everything was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. We didn't use the pool, but the pool area looked awesome and very family friendly. The price fit our budget perfectly. The hotel was only 2 miles from everything we wanted to see in La Crosse. The only down side was having to pay for our breakfast on Saturday and Sunday. I guess we've been spoiled by getting free continental breakfast everywhere else.

Room Tip: We specifically asked for a view of the Mississippi. These rooms are farther away from the pool area...

The bathroom was clean. The carpet; however, was so dirty my husband did not take his shoes off. (Pictures attached)

The two decorative chairs in the room were extremely soiled. (Pictures attached)

We arrived in the bar at 9:50 pm and were looking to order a few appetizers. We asked the bartender what time the kitchen closed and she said 10:00 pm. We asked if we could go ahead and place an order. The bartender said the kitchen was closed.

NOTE: When we arrived at the bar we noticed a younger girl leaning on the bar chatting to the bartender. Come to find out the girl was the cook who closed the kitchen 10 minutes early.

When we arrived in Lacrosse we were looking forward to lunch at the hotel. No lunch was being served. The parking lot was empty. The inside lobby looked like a construction zone. There is a lot of work that need to be completed before guests can stay here. Our room off the pool area was noisy and we could hear guest in the pool until it closed. The hotel bar was the best piece of the stay. Excellent service and great prices.

This time we did not use the pool area... in the past we have and it has a great mini pool for little ones and a waterslide/basketball area for the bigger ones. so if you are traveling with the different ages it is great. Mon-friday the breakfast is included not on weekends though; the beds are comfortable so that is what is important to me. it is an older hotel but they are doing renovations. so ask for a remodled room I think I am in a remodled room/ the rates seem to be b
based on if there is anything going on in town. the staff seemed freindly. If you do not want pool noise they have rooms not by the pool. This is my 6th trip in this hotel. So i maybe
a little bais.

Room Tip: First time here I have had a river view pretty with the leaves turning
