The motel is located in an awesome spot with everything you need very close by. The rooms were clean and well taken care of. Owners are kind and take the time to recommend places around the area or if you have any questions about anything. Would definitely stay again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Northwoods Rest Motel. The motel is centrally located between Minocqua and Eagle River. The owners were warm, friendly, and attentive. You can tell they take great pride in offering a clean, comfortable, and affordable place to stay. Thank you Ron and Marion for making our excursion up North so delightful!

We have stayed there a few times within the last dozen years. In fact we just got home yesterday again. It's in a nice spot because your halfway between Minocqua and Eagle River. It's a nice clean motel and everything you need just to have a place to sleep. We even used the $5.00 coupon at DJ's for breakfast. It was very much appreciated. We will be back again in the future. All I have to say about the Commercial-Tourist is if everything bothers him so much, then why doesn't he just stay home? Does he bring a tape measure along with him where ever he goes? UNBELIEVABLE!

Spent 3 days here riding the Vilas Trail system. Motel was clean, room was large, staff was fine and responsive to issues we had. Price was half what other motel charge around there and there’s a reason for this of course.

The Motel sits on finger of land hard up against Hwy 70 and Hwy J. Our room was less then 20 feet (I measured) from Hwy J and 30 feet from Hwy 70. The noise from lumber trucks, eighteen wheelers and their engine brakes, RVs, pickups, cars, motorcycles and buses was unbearable. It starts at about 5am and escalates with every passing minute. So be aware of that. Economy has its price.

Another issue was check out. Normally hotels have an 11 am check out time but this one requires you to be out by 10 or pay a late fee. So be aware of that.

The other thing that’s annoying is this.
We were there at the end of September riding the bike trails around St Germain. Every morning was a hassle trying to find an open restaurant for breakfast. We ended up one day waiting an hour to get into the only restaurant open in town another day we searched out a place 15 Mike’s away. Our last day, a Thursday if you can believe it, nothing was open! We wanted to stay another two days but decided to leave and we didn’t find an open restaurant until we got to Tomahawk 46 Mike’s away! Be aware of that.

Good location. Very reasonable rates. Shower head spray was so bad it was difficult to rinse your body or especially your hair. Internet was almost nonexistent. TV continually "buffered" and couldn't be watched. When I ask the office person about the internet, she claimed it is just the way it is in the northwest area. But I did not have a problem at local coffee shops or restaurants getting the internet. We moved to a different motel just down the road after six nights and received speedy internet the two nights we stayed there. Room was clean on the surface. Just don't dig too deep.

Area has restaurants, lake fishing and so on. The owners are really great and care about their guests. Price is more than fair. We stayed a full week. Plenty to do in the area. We liked it so much we booked for 2023. Support businesses like this if you want to get great service and a family feel.

We spent two nights here and loved it! The owners could not have been more responsive and gracious. They even built a bonfire for us. This motel is from the older era but very clean and the beds are good. I don't know if children would enjoy this hotel, no pool, hot tub, or play area and it is on the highway...but great for people who just want somewhere to sleep. A bar and a restaurant is within walking distance.

This was a pleasant surprise. We wanted someplace we could stay overnight to break up a longer trip further north. We were really just looking for a decent room at a good price. We found far more than that. Though the Northwoods Rest is right along the highway, it's set back far enough that noise just wasn't an issue. The rooms have been nicely updated with some care and thought for a certain kind of charm. The owner was very friendly (as was the official greeter dog!) and helpful with suggestions for local dining. When weather permits, they're happy to start a fire in their fire pit to encourage guests to relax and socialize. We were very happy to find a such a nice little motel at such a great price during the high season and would not hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed at Northwoods Rest Motel for 5 nights during St. Germains Pig in the Pines event. Upon arrival we were greeted very friendly. This place is very clean, quiet and a great location near everything. We met the owners the 1st day we were there and they even bought us a beer at the Tiki Bar, unfortunately they had to leave for Florida the next morning, so we didn't get to visit with them anymore. If we ever go back to this area, this is the 1st place I would try. The rates are very reasonable, alot cheaper than other places I looked into. Thanks for a nice stay
