“very friendly and attentive staff, but not very comfy...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2010

I stayed for over two weeks, staff was very friendly and attentive, instalations are very pretty and well mantained, pool and hot tub work great and water is always warm, fitness center does not have a lot of choices but is very comfy and have the necesary, laundry on site is a plus but its just 1 set for the whole hotel. and you never suffer for clean towels.

About cleanliness, first day walking in i found a soda cap on the floor and comforter had a blood stain, so i doubt they are doing a nice reset for the next guest... rooms were very small not very nice if you are going to stay for a long time, closets are little and not enough drawers to put your clothes in, pillows are horrible so uncomfortable and there is not microwave in the room. Breakfast was nothing special but the waffle maker... its cheap so its what you get for the price...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2010

We reserved and stayed at this property rather spur of the moment because of a death in the family. My parents stayed here years ago, and this was their choice to stay here. I was so pleasantly surprised that the rooms had all recently been refurbished (very tastefully), and the beds were so very comfortable. At this difficult time, it was so nice to have a nice place to come back to rest. My kids (teenagers) were able to blow off some steam in the nice indoor pool area. I liked the business center to catch up on e-mails. We all enjoyed the included breakfast, which was more substantial than a lot of properties offer.

The only downside was not getting a handicap room for my elderly parents. Just a note for older patrons to ask for that as the toilet is quite low for older people.

I would highly recommend this property.

I can't say enough about this establishment! The hotel is right off Highway 51, so it's easy to get on and get off the highway. The hotel itself is very clean, modern, and quiet. The rooms were newly remodeled, and are very large and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I also had no problem getting an upgraded room. The pool was excellent, and my kids enjoyed it! Numerous decent restaurants within walking distance. Overall, It was a great stop-off on our way up to the Northwoods.

Stayed at the Wausau Hampton Inn (715-848-9700) on 05/04/2010 and everything was great. Made the reservation over the phone a few hours prior to checking in with no issues. Paid ($79.45) total after taxes.

This location is extremely clean and the staff is very professional. Went out to eat down the street at a place called the mind shaft and it was horrible so don’t eat there.

I booked a block of rooms at this hotel for my son's hockey team. The hotel is very nicely remodeled and clean. It is located near many restaurants and shopping. The entire staff was very pleasant. Our second night there the fire alarm went off in the middle of the night, which set off the sprinkler system. The hotel had to be evacuated, as the 3rd floor was flooding so badly water was coming from the ceiling in the lobby. Management was extremely helpful in setting us up in another hotel, paying for that stay, and not charging us for the 2nd night at the Hampton Inn. In addition, when we arrived home we received a certificate for a free night to use sometime in the upcoming year.

This Hampton was remodeled recently and the rooms are VERY nice. Lobby area is also nicely done. Staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is easy to get to off the interstate too. Close to Granite Peak Ski area too which is why we were there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2009

We had 3 rooms for October 24, 2009. Although the hotel seemed to be full or nearly so, it was amazingly quiet. Our rooms were on the first floor with one immediately off the lobby and breakfast area. Yet, we could not hear noise from the adjacent busy areas or the adjoining room or footsteps overhead. We also were on the side nearest the Interstate and could not hear traffic or feel the vibration. All of our rooms were nicely appointed (albeit identical, right down to the cow print) and very clean. The staff was pleasant and helpful.

There were 13 people in our party, including children, and not one complaint. Well, there was one. The person last to shower at about 9:30AM said the water wasn't very hot.
