My grandmother, God rest her, was a penny-pincher. This hotel was similar. From what I can tell, the owners are trying. That's worth something, but realistically it's not a great hotel. By buying online, you can get a room without a view for about $85/night. That's ok, so long as you are ok on very firm old mattresses. Hotel looks... More

This is the 3rd or 4th revision. TA won't accept my earlier reviews. Might be my language or my sentiments regarding this completely unacceptable hotel. Trouble with C/I, dirty room, dirty lobby and a breakfast that could very well kill you. There rar better choices. Drive North to Algoma

We stayed at the Karsten Hotel for a wedding in Kewaunee. After spending the whole night in the hot weather we were looking forward to a relaxing night in an air conditioned room. The a/c unit blew luke-warm air so we were stuck sleeping in an 80 degree room with windows that were bolted shut (we bonded over this issue... More

Historic hotel in downtown Kewaunee,WI. This place has so much history and character that when you walk in you feel like you have walked back in time......but just enough for authenticity. Really HUGE room with spa tub and comfortable furniture to relax. Go downstairs and check out the community in the hotel. Feels like a really good group of friends... More

Me and my girlfriend got a room here so we wouldn't have to travel back home from the wedding we attended. We weren't in the room very much, only towards the end of our stay. The room is super tiny, with an over-sized bathroom that could be it's own room. The bathrooms also had Whirlpool bathtubs (literally the only thing... More

Stayed here one night with my wife. I love these places - nice old fashioned hotel that is upgraded, but well decorated in period fashion. The rooms are adequate size for your needs. The place is supposed to be haunted, but didn't experience anything abnormal - except the staff was barely present and seemed to appear and disappear in expectantly... More

Not very impressive from the outside and really not impressive from the inside. some antique pieces and some accessories from department stores. We paid over $125 per nite and we were on 3rd floor corner suite (high season rate for this room is $160???). Morning breakfast was weak at best. small coffee shop around corner was excellent. I guess location... More
