“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We stayed there while attending Wisconsin State Hog Rally. We booked 2 queen beds, which turned out to be 2 double. Beds were comfortable, 2nd night there, they did not change sheets, did not give us any soap or shampoo, they just finished cleaning our room at 4 pm. Went to use hot tub and pool that night, the jets weren't working properly in the hot tub, we were told maintenance does not work weekends. The pool would have been better if it was warm. It was on the cold side. The deep end of the pool was 7 ft. They kept running out of towels by the pool, they would bring out 8 towels and they would be gone in seconds, had to go to front desk to have them bring out more. They had two pool tables, 1 ping pong table, 7 or 8 arcade games. The restaurant was not too busy, but they only had 1 girl working in it, so service was not the greatest, the pizza was not good either. The pool closed at 11 pm and they closed it down at 11 pm. Which was nice since we had a poolside room, this is the first time we had seen that happen, so there was no noise coming from that area after 11. They offered a full breakfast which was alright. Would stay there again if the hot tub and pool was working properly.

Room Tip: If you get a poolside room, try getting one on first floor.

I recently visited Wausau for a Women's Conference with a friend and stayed at this hotel. Our first impression was a bit on the negative side. There was a large group of people staying at the hotel to attend a motorcycle event. There were people all around the exterior of the hotel smoking, leaving the ashtrays full by all the entrance/exits and those areas unpleasant smelling. Initially the room we were given, though a non-smoking room, smelled of stale cigarette smoke and rather musty. When I asked the front desk lady if we could move she was very accommodating and the room we got next was fine. The room was very clean and the beds/pillows were very comfortable. It was very quiet and no outside activity was heard throughout the night, which was of concern initially. They serve a hot breakfast that includes waffles, eggs, potatoes, sausage and biscuits, and many misc. items. The pool/recreational area looked absolutely wonderful! While we didn't make use of it this trip, we'll be coming back with our families in the future and making sure that we do next time. Aside for the first couple of negative impressions, the overall stay was very good and we would both come back again. THANK YOU.

First time staying in this hotel. Room was clean and comfortable. Swimming pool was excellent. Because of age, could have used an elevator of which there were none. Continental breakfast was extensive, area clean, and appropriate foods were hot and cold. A very nice stay. Well done, Best Western !!

I've stayed at this hotel three, maybe four times in my adult life and have always had good experiences there. I have two kids who love the pool and pool area. The pool is large, the deep end is actually deep (7 feet i think), the hottub is nice, not as hot as i would like but still good. They have a ping pong table, two pool tables and several video games (which are overpriced. $.50 to a dollar for most. except Atari Classics, which is a quarter and the best game!) My husband noticed the pool edges were a little slimy and the deck floor uneven, but i probably wouldnt have noticed. The rooms are clean and nice. We always stay poolside and have never had any problem with noise. The beds are doubles, so a little small for two people, but i got the whole bed and was super comfy! The continental breakfast is always good and the dining area spacious. The desk staff has always been very friendly. I can honestly say we've never had a bad experience there and the price is right. it's our go-to wausau hotel.

Very spacious and comfortable rooms. Clean and uncrowded pool area. Lots of fun activities,stores, and restaurants nearby. Breakfast is in a nice roomy sit down atmosphere. We've stayed several times over the past year either as a romantic getaway or as a family outing with our kids and never a ba stay.

Stopped here after driving 800 miles from Western NY. Staff allowed early check in at approximately 1:00 PM. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. Hotel was a little dated but clean throughout. Breakfast was better than average, we really liked the fact the buffet is served in Hotel's onsite restaurant providing plenty of room for morning rush. Hotel is pet friendly and their was plenty of room to walk dog. Pool was clean with tons of tables and chairs. Pool tables and ping pong were free with $5 equipment deposit. Location was very close to highway, fast food, gas, walmart etc.

Only possible drawback (didn't bother us) was noise and heat from pool. Hallways were warm and a family reunion of 40 ppl were at pool which could bother someone looking for a quieter stay.

Room Tip: Rooms away from pool were quieter and more convienient to rear and side exits.
