“Our favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

We have stayed at Aqua-Aire snowmobiling for over 25 years, along with the occasional summer getaway. The location is perfect- easy in and out and close to everything. Sleds are parked right in front of your door. But it's the hospitality that makes this the place by which we judge all other motels (large or small) when traveling!

We found this motel for 8 guys for a snowmobile trip. The owners were terrific!!! Rooms are quaint and a circa 1980 which you expect for the rate, and Super Clean!! Easy access to lake. Some of the reviews my have complained about refund policy but they are a small motel (10 rooms) and NOT corporate to be able to eat cancellations 24 hours before. Owners take interest to members of your party to fully provide you with any help you may need during your stay i.e. Dining, snowmobiling , night life, etc. I think they have a great handle on activity in the parking lot to ensure your safety and well being of vehicles/ trailers left unattended. Will definitely use this place again.

Very nice place to stay when snowmobiling. Nice little motel. Owners are very nice and helpful if you need something, prices are very reasonable and snowmobile trail is right at motel. Been staying here every winter for the past four years and never had a bad experience.

I took a trip to Minocqua to ride snowmobiles and stayed in the Aqua aire motel. It was a great experience. The rooms were very clean, the location was great and made it easy to access the trails. The staff was very knowledgeable of the area and the trails and made our trip that much better. We had a four place snowmobile trailer and had no problem loading and unloading. Over all it was a great experience and I would definitely stay there again.

stayed there for a weekend of snowmobiling and it was absolutely perfect for it. not huge rooms but very very clean and well taken care of. The owners of the motel are very friendly and willing to help you with any questions you have about the area.

Room Tip: good for getting on the snowmobile trails quickly

If you looking for a simple place for affordable price to stay in beautiful Wisconsin town of Minocqua, try Aqua Air Motel.
we stayed here 3 years ago when snowmobiling, and this year we choose the same place as well.
Very good location- you can reach downtown even on foot,
you can park snowmobile right in front of your room,
access of the lake in the back yard...
Clean and warm room, hot coffee, internet access and
very welcome hosts- Dick and Joanne, who can give you advises and answer many your questions

I will start off by saying "This is not the Ritz". This is an old motel where you can back your car up to the room door & unload. The owners have owned it for over 30 years & they assign parking spaces. They clean the rooms themselves & live on sight. The hosts were friendly, location was excellent, immediately across the street from Lake Minocqua and Torpy park. Very easy access to the downtown shops and restaurants. The rooms are small and older of decor. Price a tad higher ($100/ night during 4th of July) Rooms were spotless. The rooms are small w/ double beds & paneled walls. The tv is an old 16 in? The bathroom is small w/ a stall shower. We were there on the 4th of July & the town was packed w/ tourists. We were able to walk everywhere & didn't have to fight for parking spots. We asked the owners where to go for the fireworks & they told us to bring a chair to the parking lot. It was the best spot it town--fireworks were right over our heads. The best fireworks that I've ever seen. When we checkout out, they recommend that we go to the local Zoo, so we did. It is one of the best zoos that I've ever been to. Your kids can interact w/ the animals, pet them, take pics, etc. The goats, deer, peacocks, and more where out running loose. Great experience.

Room Tip: great location
