“We stay here almost every time we go to The Dells”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

This hotel is not fancy, but it is a comfortable and clean place to stay. It is cheap (by comparison), has an outdoor pool and is right downtown so you can walk to the shopping, restaurants and bars. I love it!

Stayed in the off-season, and had a nice experience. Owners were very nice, the rooms were clean, and beds comfortable. We stayed in October for a Badger Football game. It was worth the drive to Madtown instead of paying 4 times for a Hotelin madtown. The motel was in the heart of Downtown Dells close to the bars & restaurants.

We stayed here on a two night romantic getaway. It's a nice little motel in downtown Dells. Right in the middle of downtown, plenty of bars, food and things to do are close by. Price is fantastic. Owners were helpfull with any questions and rooms were clean and quaint. It isn't an upscale hotel by any means, but if your hotel isn't your "destination", this is perfect. We were able to walk to bars and up and down the strip very easily.

Only con on sleep quality was the same as with alot of places: Complete blackout curtains for sleeping is a must!! Not just at night but for those lazy midday naps. Otherwise we had a great time and we'll stay here again!

What is there not to like about this old school motel situated right in the heart of the Dells. Accommodations are basic but appear to be somewhat updated and rooms are impeccably clean. They have a large outdoor pool and free morning coffee. The owners are very friendly and I believe they live on the property as they were very attentive at all hours. Only little oddity was you pay for ice in the office; a quarter for a bucket. I guess it is a way to be sure guests don’t fill their coolers? We stayed here a few years ago for the Wo Zha Wa Festival and did the same again this year, so obviously a place we would return to in the future.

This hotel is a bargain. It is Very Clean and convienent to all things in downtown Wisc. Dells and the River Walk. Owners & staff were helpful in explaining how to get the best deals on boat rides and shows. The hotel has a nice pool, it does not have a lot of other amenities, but you won't need them, there are many restaurants and and other things to do, just a block away.

We stayed at The Gables for a couple of days last week and, as always, had a wonderful time. Their pool is a great place to lounge, the rooms are affordable, clean and spacious. The location can't be beat! It sits just a few yards from the center of the downtown River District with all it's shops, restaurants, and bars. We just park the car when we check in and walk everywhere. We also stay during the off season for Dells On Tap (October) and Automotion (May).

My husband and I along with friends stay at The Gables at least twice a year. We just LOVE it here. The owners are very hands on and the most friendly people you can meet. The rooms are sparse, but comfortable. There are AC units in each of the rooms and if you go in cold weather, there is a heater. Small T.V.s are in the room, but really, how much television are you really going to be watching?

The pool is fantastic and as others have said, usually not busy. 1 block from downtown and within easy walking distance to the bars and restaurants.

We are planning on staying at The Gables next month and again for Labor Day. :-)
