“Looks very nice, but cheap construction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

I have stayed at the hotel twice. Both times were weekends. The first time the hotel was pretty empty. We did not have any problems then. The second time the hotel was full. You can hear every noise in the place. There was a wedding reception on the 1st floor. We were there for the reception but chose to go to bed 'early'. Most wedding receptions end at 11 or midnight. We left at 1 am and things were still going. Our room was on the 2nd floor, I'm pretty sure it was right above the dance floor. I could understand the words to the music playing it was so loud in our room. I would not have wanted to be a guest not from the wedding or a guest with a family trying to stay in that room. We were also disturbed early in the morning by the guests' above us; their children were running around. Plus anytime a car outside on main street (right next to the hotel) honked their horn you could hear it. Also, the lighting was terrible. There was only 1 ceiling light, by the door to the room. They had 3 lamps but they did a very poor job lighting the room. As the other review said- parking is very limited. They do have an overflow lot but it too is small and you have to ask specifically at check in, you are not told. I went to school at UWRF, there are better places to stay even if they are further from campus and downtown.

Although new and located conveniently across from UWRF, this hotel has thin walls and a nightclub on the first floor. Even the upper floors can hear the traffic on Main Street all night long. The breakfast was adequate at best.

This is the second stay at BW-River Falls. Both stays were a weekend night. 1st stay, coffee in room, nice breakfast with coffee, juice, waffles, yogurt, toast, bagels, cereal, milk, and more. 2nd stay-no coffee in room, breakfast was juice, milk, coffee, dry cereal. Clerk advised breakfast menu changed for weekends. Offered $2 off coupons for $8.95 breakfast in motel restaurant. Room rates were increased. Loud groups of kids running through halls, day and night.

Poorly constructed hotel where you hear every noise. There was an event in the 1st floor banquet room and heard the music with heavy bass thumping late into the night. Complained to staff but couldn't do anything because people paid for the banquet and said if I wanted a new room on 3rd floor that would be worse due to the fact it would be on the same side of the banquet room. In addition there was an electrical fire where the elevators were out of order and heard people running up stairs late into the night. They only took $10 off bill to put up with this terribly noisy hotel. Also, there is very limited parking. Had to park on the street!!

My husband and I are on a road trip out east and decided to stay in the new Best Western hotel. It was a bit far from the Interstate but worth the drive. The price was very reasonable, and the hotel room was clean, quiet, and even we got upgraded to a suite. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to stay back for an extra night. A 2 star hotel rating but a 3.5-4 star hotel rating experience ---big room, clean, flat screen, granite counter tops, clean pool, and good service.
