This isn't the place to stay if you're looking for wow-factor luxury and entertainment. But if you find yourself in or near Ripon and need a decent place to lay your head for the night and bath/shower in the morning, I would highly recommend The Welcome Inn. The room decor is mid-90's, but not shabby. There's wi-fi. If you're trying... More

Well it was clean. This is a very low economy hotel at at high end hotel price. The room was very small with an even smaller bath room. The bed was uncomfortable and the pillows were lumpy. This establishment is in need of a major remodel. The clerk was pleasant but was not available in the early morning. The fair... More

Friendly staff, clean room. Very old facility, looked like original bed spread etc., still being used. If you enjoy old motels, and are not accustomed to entry level modern hotel chains, this might work.

I was on a long bike trip with friends through Wisconsin and we were stopping at small local Hotel/Motels. Welcome inn in Ripon was great. The owner was working the front desk and he was delightful. The room was big, clean and very affordable. The next time that I am close to Ripon, Wisconsin I will make sure I stay... More

We arrived without reservations at the end of a long day riding bicycles across WI county roads. Asked for one room w three beds. The Manager explained he had one but need 30 to prepare it since cleaning staff were absent that day, a Sunday. He offered us weary travelers some ice cold beers while we waited. Wow, we were...

After a century bicycling day we arrived at the Welcome Inn in Ripon, tired but looking forward to relaxing and getting a bit to eat. The management was excellent and offered us two cold beverages to cool down. We had stayed there a couple of years earlier on the same route and the management remembered us and gave us a... More

Rooms are dated. Internet is mediocre at best. If you have work to get done that requires internet do not stay there. No coffeemakers in room despite their website stating that they are furnished. Continental breakfast and breakfast room is the smallest we have ever seen and I travel a lot. We stayed for 2 nights because we had no... More

Starting with the Cons, the hotel is quite out-dated. The bathroom was small and in need of some repairs. The television worked for an hour and then for the next 3 days all we could watch was ESPN. The 2-cup coffee maker was reluctant to work properly and brewed the first time entirely in the grounds reservoir. Once we figured... More

The hotel had been one of the choices for those not staying at the Green Lake Conference Center. We were attending a week conference on World Mission. The room were dated but refreshed with new wallpaper and somewhat new furniture, the bed were surprisingly comfortable and the owner.manager Bo was a wealth of good conversation and ready to help.

Very clean. The hotel was a dated however, Bo the manager/owner, went out of his way to accommodate myself and co-worker when we got kicked out of a different local hotel because they over booked. The lounge was closed, which was disappointing. There is a store & fast food restaurant next door. Located in downtown within walking distance to fine... More
