We wanted to participate in the 100th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wrights work which is being held in Wisconson and so we went through all the TA reviews on places to stay near Spring Green Wisconson. Our first choice was not available so we took our second choice the Usonian. It is, as reported, an old roadside motel. It has had 3 or 4 owners since the original owner and the last two have made significant improvements. The current owners have done all that could be done to a 10 room property and probably have spent more than they will ever recover.
Yes the room had a musty smell when we checked in but after opening all the windows it seemed to clear up. All of the appliances worked and the many reminders were all helpful. I was amazed that WIFI was there and worked. Beds were comfortable and even though we were 50 to 100 feet from the road it was very quiet. As to dining the general store was great for breakfast (also WIFI available) and Arthurs restaurant was a real winner. Excellent food and fast friendly service. If it werent 2000 miles from my home I would become a regular.
