Clean, centerly located. Very helpful staff. Stayed weekdays for 9 months. When I was away for a week, they kept my car in parking lot for free, and shoveled the snow so I could get out upon return.

I wasn't sure about this hotel after reading the other reviews, but we decided to stay anyway. We thought it was awesome, granted we stayed during the week and I can see how the pool area would be a big pull for kids on the weekend. We reserved a 2 room pool side suite for one night. Bed was very comfortable,couches were awesome, pool area was great. We ate at the onsite rest in the evening and it was good. The comp breakfast in the morning was a nice suprise. The tv's in the room were old, the picture on one tv was very fuzzy depending on which channel watching. But for the price we paid, we'd definately stay here again.

Thank you for staying with us. I'm glad you had a great time at our facility. I would like to note we recently started a fantastic new menu at the Hoffman House Restaurant and Lounge. I'm sorry about issues you experienced with your television. There was an issue with a cable splitter in the utility room which caused some interference, which is corrected now.

Thank you again for choosing Best Western.

Very old very used. Pool area was terrible, ran out of towels, Dirty, little kids in hot tub, huge chips out of the bottom of the pool in the deep end. Dome leaks. They had waste baskets catching drips from ceiling! HOT in our room we were told no AC "open your window". Front desk staff very unfriendly and unhelpful. Don’t ask them any place to go none of them are from the area. If I were the owners I would shut it down and bulldoze the whole place.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

I want to sincerely apologize you had a bad experience with us. We are constantly planning and making improvements to our property and service. Our mattresses were recently replaced and right at this moment our pool and whirlpool are closed for maintenance and repairs. Both are expected to be open by July 11th, 2011 with a brand new look. There are a couple very minor roof leaks in the pool area, which we plan to have repaired as soon as possible. In the mean time I truly apologize for the inconvenience caused by this.

I'm sorry the Guest Service Representative wasn't helpful giving you directions. This is the first comment I've received from any guest in regards to this. All of our staff is from and familiar with the area. We are constantly training and coming up with new ways of improving our service, including at the front desk.

I invite you to try us again and see all the changes made in the short time since your stay. You will not be disappointed.

Favorite choice for Wausau hotel when on weekend ski trip to Granite Peak.
Kids love the pool game room. Fun videogames, pool, pingpong, and hot tub.
Lots of space in pool room to hang out with a large group.
Skip the restaurant if you have time, and get take out from the Great Dane Brewery.
And again if you have time, get breakfast across the Hwy at Emma Crumbees.

You're right! Wausau's Best Western has become a tradition for many families. From our spacious domed atrium pool area, to our business and fitness center, Best Western offers all of the amenities you need for a getaway. We also offer a Hot Breakfast Buffett each morning including a selection of hot breakfast items, fruit, pastries, juices and more, all just a few steps from you room. Best Western also boasts two on-site dining options available so you don’t even have to start your car. The Hoffman House Restaurant and Cali's Grille Room Lounge offer mouthwatering Steaks, Pizzas and more! Wausau's Best Western could be your family's new tradition.

Don't stay at this hotel on a weekend unless you have children. All rooms face the pool which has a quiet time of 11 PM!!! - too late for business travelers.
Biggest issue is that no one enforced the rule of no glass in pool area. There were glass beer bottles, glass pickle jars, etc. where big groups of adults and children were eating by the pool.

I am sorry you were disappointed during your stay. We offer many quiet rooms just down the hallway from the pool area that many business travelers truly enjoy. Our pool and whirlpool are sure to be a hit with adults and children alike. We do enforce the rule of no glass in the pool area; I apologize if there was glass taken in the pool area by guests during your visit. The safety of our guests is of very high importance, and I apologize our staff did not catch the guests you saw with glass in the pool area. Please visit us again soon, we constantly strive to better serve our guests and we will be changing our pool closing time soon to better serve you.

The service is extremely poor. Unknown to me the hotel is run down, but not a lot of choices during busy season or ski weekends. And they know it, so they treat you like crap when you make any special requests. Manager Nicole was less then helpful when a roll away bed was requested. Would not here again. Priceline 2.5 star was not worth it ($60)!!!!
