We stayed here for one night as an alternative to staying in Lucern.
We had the option of a mountain view or a lake view and went for the mountain view as we were told by reception that it is quieter. However, the room overlooked the hotel parking lot and were awakened by a delivery truck at 7am!! Perhaps the lake view would have been nicer but then a highway passes down below in front of the hotel.
The hotel is very much a budget hotel but very very clean. The carpet in the room seemed new and though everything else is a little dated, it is neither worn, dirty, nor nicked. The bed was pretty hard though. The bathroom was really big with a huge shower stall. Again, the fixtures and tiles are old but spotless and in good condition.
They have an interesting key system when you leave the room which I think is a safer alternative to leaving the key at the reception (which a lot of people don't like). You put your key in a keyhole on a board which then releases a smaller key for the entrance door since the reception is not open til very late. So, your key is kind of 'locked' on the board until you return and insert the entrance key to retrieve your room key.
Breakfast was good with a nice table right at the windows overlooking the lake. Too bad it was raining because it looked as though you could eat breakfast on the balcony. The breakfast consisted of the usual German stuff of cold cuts, müsli, jam, rolls, coffee, tea, and juice.
I can't comment on the town of Hergiswil as we had limited time and only drove into Lucern which isn't very far by car. All in all I'd recommend this hotel for the price and cleanliness for those who don't care too much about luxury and don't really need to be in downtown Lucern.
