4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

My husband and I stayed here overnight on our way up north. Our room was comfortable and clean and great for the price. The lady at the front desk, RuthAnn, is a thorough professional, very hospitable and has exceptional customer service skills. My husband and I had to check out of our room early in the morning, an hour before the scheduled breakfast time. RuthAnn generously served up a whole breakfast and laid out the table just for us.

I am glad we came here. And for the price, it is wonderful. I'll surely come back someday.

We have moved to Wausau and have been staying at the Days Inn untill we could find a apartment, after 2 weeks we didnt find a place yet n I asked about the monthly special its 499.00 a month the lady at the front desk would not do anything unless we had all the money up front after paying out over 500.00 hundred dollars. Make a long story short we have been here since the 13th of May and have payed out 821.36 and it is now the 31st of May and there is nothing management will do to help with the monthly special. I have to come up with another 500.00 if i want to stay 4 june after i should only be paying 189.00 and the month of June should be payed in full, so no I'm not really happy with that.

Sorry to hear about how you feel I can understand. However in order to get the very lowest monthly rate you have to take it at c/in. If you stay 3 weeks & decide to change to a monthly rate it can not be prorated & this was explained to you at c/in. What we did do for you is gave you a fridge at no charge & waived all pet & linen fees. This was a savings of $200. If you choose to return in the future there is nothing hidden. Thanks for your review.

We stayed here while touring different schools in the area. The reason we picked this location was price and work out room. The work out room is more like a closet, a treadmill and bike, that was it. The walls were paper thin and we could hear everything in the adjoining rooms including all the doors open and closing. The drains were very slow and the room had a dirty feel to it. My pillow had stains on it too.

We were assigned a room right across the hall from a room with people who were noisy and had two dogs barking until 2-3 a.m. These individuals had personalized decorations hanging on their door, so appeared to be living there. Had we had a room in a different part of the hotel, where I could have slept, my review would be very different. Positives: very clean, okay continental breakfast
Negatives: bathrooms very small, double beds(not queen or king)-small for two people

We stay in Wausau twice a year going to and from Green Bay. We have stayed at several other hotels at much higher prices. Since we need a two rooms we started to shop for a less expensive hotel on the internet.
This is a great hotel. very clean! The beds are comfy and rooms updated.
We requested rooms off the parking lot and had no highway sound issues.

Contemporary very clean but small rooms. Good internet. Nice and clean. Friendly staff. Good cont'l breakfast in a clean breakfast room. Quiet guest rooms with exposed brick makes the decor warmer. Easy access. This could serve as the standard of excellence for a well run motel for a budget chain.

Staying at this hotel was a based entirely on cost. We were in town for a wedding at the Plaza and were not interested in paying their upcharge for the weekend. I'm very glad of the choice we made. The room was small and simple, but it was clean. Everything worked. The continental breakfast was adequate, and the dining area clean. If you're looking for luxury, you aren't going to get it. If you're looking for a cheap, clean, place to sleep, you've come to the right place.
