“Nice for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

We've stayed in several microtels now and this one was a mostly good experience. Room size a little small but OK for an overnight. Good-sized mini-fridge and microwave. Good wifi. I love the window seat and the back rooms look out onto trees - very peaceful. The TV was older, oddly placed above the wardrobe and kept losing the picture on some channels. Manager said they're in the process of replacing and upgrading them. Quiet at night. Breakfast was OK, mostly bread and cereal (no hardboiled eggs, like some other microtels) but they did offer fruit and yogurt. Manager and desk clerks were all very friendly and helpful - helped us find the excellent nearby city walking trail called Cedar Side, beside a lovely river. I would stay here again.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I stayed for a week and over the weekend a sports tournament with high school kids took over virtually the entire hotel. My room was across from an open space where the elevator was which became the gathering space for the hallway games. The staff didn't seem to care about it and entering and leaving the room was very difficult - trying to sleep impossible. The parents of the rowdy teens took over the entire lobby with their wine party and made entry and exit to the hotel even more difficult.

Staff was never at the desk - they were playing guitar in the back or not even around.

Not a place to stay if you want anyone to care. The last day there the owner was there and they had to call the police after a guy came in and tried to get into the cabinets in the breakfast area and then started throwing food.

Kind of a surreal experience.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the suite and ask to be as far from the central core as possible

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately we had numerous problems with the group occupying the hotel. Our staff works hard to tend to our guests and I am sorry that your experience wasn't up to our usual high standards. If the desk attendant was not available he was more than likely addressing a problem with the group, which again were numerous. Thank you for staying with us, and I hope you will give us another chance.

NEVER STAY HERE. Dirty, loud, uncaring, closet.
We Booked our weekend get away thru Booking.com. 2 nights in a clean, quiet, spacious, queen room with a flat screen tv and full continental breakfast. When we arrived, we were greeted with a don't bother me glare. After waiting for someone else to come to the front desk, we were told our booking was for 1 night not 2 and an extra local tax. Fabreeze filled the elevator and hallway. The room was the size of a closet, there were 6 hangers for clothes, no place for coats, poorly cleaned floor and dust on the tiny desk. Oh yea, the huge 10 year old 19 inch CRT tv, flat screen my [--]. The door and walls were so thin we could hear other people thinking and the best joy of all was the pop and ice machine were just outside our door so we got to listen to that all night long. Breakfast was day old food. At the end of our stay I brought these issues to the manager and was greeted with that's not my fault, we are working on that, thanks for your money and goodbye. NEVER STAY HERE!!!!!!!!!!!

If you need a place to stay in the Rice Lake area i highly recommend the Microtel Inn & Suites. You will be greeted by friendly staff when you arrive and make sure your stay is pleasant. The room are immaculate. Nice linens. Very good wireless internet and nice selection of TV channels on the flat pane TV.

I stayed two nights at this hotel by myself for a conference. I was very happy with my stay.

The room rate was very reasonable, considering each room has a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and spacious bathroom. The beds are comfortable, and perhaps the only downside is the TV location assumes you'll have people on both sides of the room. Having a mini-kitchen is pretty nice and unexpected for a standard room.

Their breakfast options are pretty standard but effective. Cereal, oatmeal, danishes, donuts, waffle makers, etc. They provide free coffee 24-7 which is nice.

The service is helpful and lenient, allowing me to stay in the lobby to meet some associates after checking out.

Getting to the hotel is easy with it being just a block off the highway, and the location is recessed behind a Kwik Trip so it's pretty quiet. Within a short drive or even a walking distance from a number of fast food, formal restaurants, and stores.

If my journey brings me to Rice Lake in the future, I would be glad to stay here again.

Booked this room for $66 - and got upgraded when we arrived (without even requesting it). The rooms are great - clean, comfy beds, nice size. The hotel is in great condition and easy to find in town. The hotel clerk, Carl, was super helpful - went above and beyond the expected level of service several times. I would stay here again in a hearbeat.

Tiny room. If you enjoy a spacy room, this is not it. If you like feeling like you're in a downtown DC hotel when you're in Po-Dunk Junction, this is the place!
Friendly staff. No real complaints other than size.
