Based on reviews I thought I would give a try since I was going solo and for the cheap price my expectations were low but unfortunately obviously not low enough. The gentleman at the desk was friendly enough... but that's were the pleasantries ended. I opened the door to my room and it stank like dirty, sweaty shoes... unbelievably musty... More

I stay here every year on my vacation to Devil's Lake state park. Clean and quiet. Walking distance to a great grocery store and bowling alley and convenience store. Rooms have new flat screen tv's, coffe maker, fridge and Microwave. Vinny, the owner is a friendly, personable guy and the housekeeping staff is friendly too. I highly recommend this motel.

Stayed here last year and it's still as good as it was then. Clean rooms and convenient to most everything, some within walking distance. There is some kind of park in back which is nice for walking the dog and it appears to be a very safe neighborhood. Close to the Wisconsin Dells but a lot quieter and cheaper too.... More

PET FRIENDLY! We've stayed there several times with our 9# Pomeranian. Always a very satisfactory experience. The motel is located in a very safe neighborhood. Plus they are 1/2 block from a great Mexican restaurant.

Clean room, most helpful staff, and a restaurant next door that gives you a discount if you show them your room key. easy driving to the Dells and the casino without pay high prices for their rooms. It's quiet at night. there's a shuttle to the casino. Good Local restaurants and gas stations.

So I called to ask a question and before I could ask anything else the man said "nope goodbye " like I couldn't even get nothing out my mouth. I find that kind of disrespectful. Then he just hung up in my face and didn't really seem to care how he answered.

Had a wonderful experience. Was there for New Year's Eve. Shuttle took us to the casino, got home and was able to get ice from the office. Nice people, prices were great. Definitely would stay there again. Thanks

I made a reservation and decided to cancel it. Went to the website to cancel, put in my name and reservation number. There was absolutely NO PLACE on that site to cancel. I then called the motel and fellow that answered told me to go thru Booking.com to cancel in which I did. When I gave Booking.com my reservation number... More
