I stayed at this hotel a few times in the past 3 months and I have nothing bad to say. It is right off I-39, near where Highway 29 meets up. It is across the street from multiple restaurants, including a Denny's that has the best breakfast. Excellent staff, service, good pool, rooms are quiet,clean, spacious. I would recommend this...

My wife and I stayed here for one night on Saturday January 28th, 2012. This is our 5th stay at the hotel. I posted a review after our 4th stay (posted below). Thankfully everything is still very nice at this location. The young lady that checked us Saturday evening was very nice. The first room that was assigned to us...

We have stayed at this Econo Lodge twice and have been pleased each time. The staff is helpful and the facilities are just fine. I have read other people's reviews on here and am surprised by their negative impressions. Recall that this is an Econo Lodge and offers a reasonable price for a clean room, hot shower, and continental breakfast...

This one is way on the south end of Wausau (I believe it is technically in Rothschild.) This was a Comfort Inn until around 2010, when it became an Econo Lodge. It probably does fit the mold of the Econo Lodge better - it's a little older and starting to show a bit of wear. Staff is very friendly, and...

Stayed here for one night in October 2011 when taking an early morning flight from entral Wisconsin airport. Room was a reasonable value, clean but older. There are several fast food places near by as well as shopping at Cedar Creek Mall. Breakfast was sparce. There is no shuttle to the airport and a taxi ride is a ridiculous $30.

We stayed at this location on Sunday, September 11, 2011. We redeemed our Choice Prilvileges points for two rooms for one night. The check-in process was fine, and the desk clerk Jessica was very helpful. She was polite, and even gave me one of her old cell phone chargers when I noticed that I had left mine at home. The...

Stayed here after my son's graduation. Flew out of CWA so this hotel was conveniently located to airport. Close to shopping and movies and Water park. Nice courtyard.
