We stayed in the hot air balloon room which is 2 levels. You sleep in the center of the balloon. I love the quirkiness. There is a hot tub that looks like you are in the side of a mountain. The hotel is a bit aged but still offers a very unique stay. The staff is friendly and rooms are... More

After hitting the House on the Rock we decided to check this place out. They had a lot of rooms available and offered to show us a few to help us choose. We ended up in the Jungle themed room. The place is a bit old and had a lingering smoke smell in the room, but it wasn't overwhelming. The... More

Quirky and fun atmosphere. I've driven by a million times on my way to Spring Green but never had an occasion to stop until now. If you want to time travel back to the quirky kitsch of the 1970's this would be the place. Doors still lock with real keys and rooms seem to have the original fixtures and decor,... More

Stayed last night. The inn has been here a long time. Nice selection of fantasy rooms, we stayed in a regular room. Room was very large and clean. Nice pool area and lounging areas. Walked through tunnel to adjoining restaurant/bar. Very enjoyable visit and we will be back.

It's not your typical hotel for those who like the best of amenities, but if you're looking for a pleasant trip to the past, this place is the ONE to pick. From the big rustic doors and the rustic, beamed interior, to the barber shop chairs around the welcoming main lobby fireplace, and the warm friendly staff, this place offers... More

Fulfilled a bucket list item by staying in one of the Don Q's fantasuites. Once was more than enough. Let me say firstly, that every staff person we encountered were friendly and welcoming...thank you to them. Now, for the establishment itself. Frankly, the Don Q is showing wear & tear, aging poorly, and is frankly, overpriced. The lobby and hallways... More

In reading through the reviews, I cannot fathom people's surprised reactions. Wasn't the giant plane in front a clue that this was not your typical hotel? If you don't want fun, tacky/ wacky, stay somewhere else and leave it to those of us who appreciate it. If you are going to stay, choose a themed room, but be prepared for... More

We spent our first anniversary here and this weekend we spent our 20th. Out was a last minute trip so we were only able to stay Friday night but we had a wonderful time. I love the uniqueness of this hotel. It was very clean and all the staff was friendly and helpful. We were able to come back before... More
