“Best choice in Dells”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Me and my boyfriend have stayed in Bridge View motel twice already and really enjoyed it.

The rooms are clean, with hot water, new towels every day, a small fridge, a microwave (in some rooms I guess - we only got it our second time there) and last but not least free in-room wifi!

The owner is friendly and accomodative and somehow always available (at least we never had a hard time finding her for requests/information).

But what we liked the most was the motel's location. It's only a short walk away from Downtown Dells, but still far enough that you feel closer to nature with water and green all around. It's also located right across the Riverwalk, which is clearly the most beautiful attraction in the Dells - I wonder when they're gonna make us pay for this too!

I don't think visiting the Dells for a third time is in our plans (there are only that many things one can do there), but if we did we would definitely stay in Bridge View motel again. Highly recommended.

I have been coming to the Wisconsin Dells for years. We always try to go to the smaller hotels to get more bang for your buck. this year we chose to go to the Bridge View Motel. We arrived early and was allowed in are rooms at 11am. this was nice because we were able to put are stuff away to enjoy our vacations without be cramped up in a car. The pool temp is set at 80 degrees so it is heated. The rooms are old fashion and need to be updated. However with the rate that we paid It was fine. The manager was very nice and tried to help with our every need. However, with every hotel there are also downsides. The air conditioners take a bit to cool down the room, and you are not given shampoo and only one set of towels for the room. The rooms are also very dark so you will need to keep curtains open to get good lighting which takes away privacy. Warning the 2 blocks they state from downtown feels more and if you have kids you still may want to drive. The positive side about the hotel is that it is a small hotel so you will not have to fight people in the pool and the pool is open till midnight.

Every summer, our family enjoys going to the Dells for a few days to get away from home, and we only have one choice for lodging: The Bridge View motel. Let me begin by saying that the management of the motel is very friendly. We (over the years of visiting the Dells) have noticed that the owner of the motel is increasingly caring, so we know that we'll be taken care of the same way we would be at home in Chicago. The rooms are comfortable and clean. They can fit a group as large as 5-6 people, which is actually larger than the normal family anyway. They are always kept clean, and they contain the necessary living supplies. The building is conveniently placed in view of lake Delton and walking distance of Downtown Wisconsin Dells. I would highly suggest staying at the Bridge View motel when you come to the Dells.

Bridge View took in our LARGE group after our original plans ended up in shambles, successfully wrenching our Retreat from the jaws of utter depression.
The owner was fair and very accommodating of our needs even after being initially skeptical of such a large group. This was entirely refreshing as we'd previously run into SEVERAL sketchy motel owners in the area.

The 8 Sleeper house was large and well isolated from the rest of the motel allowing for a bit more noise. The beds were firm, the sheets were clean and it came with a full kitchen. The only complaint about that unit is that the fridge never really got cold enough for all the food we were going to pack in there, a 5lb pack of ice quickly turned it into a nice drink cooler though.

The 6 Sleeper room was incredibly spacious once the sofa bed was put away during the day. This unit, too, had a full kitchen with plenty of cupboard space and dishware. Thankfully the fridge in this unit got cold enough so that we could just store all of our food in it. The majority of our "at motel" time was spent in this unit for that reason.

The owner was quick to express concerns before they became issues. She stressed the No Smoking rule more than once and we were quick to place ALL smokers far away from the rooms.

In all, if I came back to the Dells on a non-resort exclusive trip, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the house away from the main body of the motel if you plan to be a bit louder. Follow the fa...

It was a pleasure having your large group of young
men as my guests. You are all very lively, happy,
respectful and well brought up individuals
and your parents should be very proud.
You are welcome back anytime.

When I called I agree with her on price. But when I got there she charged double because as she said I cant book for Saturday night only. I have to stay for Sunday night.Expensive for the poor services they offer. Not clean Motel. Make sure you bring your shampoo and towels with you if you want to stay there.

Sorry to hear that you visit was not enjoyable,
and that the issues at hand were not brought to our attention.
Like the majority of motels in the Dells area,
Bridge View Motel as well has a two night minimum stay
requirment on the weekends. Customers are informed
of this policy before a reservation is taken.
You reservation was for two rooms, for a Friday and
Saturday night stay, and your party checked out on
Sunday morning.
Our facility is state inspected and approved and although
cleanliness is a priority occasionally something may be
overlooked and we appreciate it being brought to our attention.
We apologize that housekeeping was not up to your
standards and that it was not addressed so that it would
be corrected immediately, for example extra towels and toiletries
are provided on request.
Again sorry of the miscommunication and hopefully
this answers your concerns.

Manager/owner was helpful and very nice. The place is in a quiet and ideal spot for walking around downtown, also the rooms were spacious and well kept. The only thing is the price, I did book on short notice, but many older motels like this were $20-30 cheaper per night plus offered a military discount but were booked. However, I would stay again based on all the other factors.

We have been coming to this hotel for 20 summers now. The rooms are always spotlessly clean. The beds are ice and firm. The location perfect, especially if you want to be able to do a quick walk to Broadway and the "strip" without having to worry if you have a few adult beverages. It's a nice quick walk. Location is wonderful. Nice and quiet. Pool is great for a quick dip to cool off. The pool is immaculate as well.

Room Tip: Room directly over office has a great view of the bridge and the river
