Boulder Junction Motor Lodge
Reviewed July 11, 2012

We just got back from three nights at the Boulder Junction Motor Lodge. If you want immaculate rooms for a great price, this is the place to stay. This is not a luxury motel but it is comfortable with a pleasant lobby and well kept grounds. There is plenty of parking and we had no trouble finding a location for our boat and car. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Our only minor criticism was that the towels were thin and small but it was a small price to pay for the clean room and bathroom. Hot coffee and a pastry were available each morning and if you need something more, try the breakfast sandwiches at the bakery.

We just got back from a snowmobile trip to Boulder Junction and were VERY happy with the Boulder Junction Motor Lodge. Here are some of the highlights & reasons why I recommend staying here:
- The hotel room was surprisingly very large and very clean
- The location is PERFECT. There is a snowmobile trail that starts at the end of their parking lot and another one across the street. You don't have to trailer your snowmobiles or go very far to start riding. We also parked our snowmobiles right by their side out front so we didn't have to put them back on the trailer each night
- We went on this trip with friends and they do not own a snowmobile. There is a rental place right next door! We walked over and they rented & picked up a snowmobile for the day. (They got a 2 person to save money and had to trade off who was driving because the person sitting in the back had such a rough ride -- they both said they would rent their own next time)
- There is a bar within walking distance so we went there at night. The town is very small so there are quite a few places to drive to.
- We were able to drive our snowmobiles about 10 minutes down the road to gas up. We also bought our WI snowmobile sticker there for $35.00.
- The owners of the hotel are very nice. We weren't sure which trails would be the best to ride and they recommended 2 great rides for us.
- They have a hot tub! After a long day of snowmobiling getting in the hot tub felt great!
- They have free WiFi!

The only downside is the "free continental breakfast" listed on their website. They put out coffee, hot cocoa, and spiced cider (all of which are great). The breakfast only consists of a few donuts and pastries though. I already knew this before we went (from reading other reviews) so we brought bagels, a toaster & some granola bars for breakfast.

Overall this is a great place to stay and I highly recommend it!

Great location, clean rooms, beds reasonable, fresh coffee and donuts in the AM...Dan and Renee make you feel like you're a guest in they're home here! Get a Deer viewing room and watch the deer come by to eat every late afternoon! The Boulder Beer Bar is practically out the side door and walkable. Close to XC skiing, snowshoe, bike, and snowmobile trails. THE best place to stay in the Northwoods!

The snowmobile trail is right to the motel and there are several bars/grills within walking distance. There is also snowmobile rental next door.This is the cleanest motel I have stayed at and hosts are very friendly.You will like this place for a nice ,quiet and clean place to stay.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are nice and the deer viewing rooms are in the back if you wish.

This is such a welcoming, clean and friendly place -- a perfect combination for our yearly get-away in the northwoods! Dan and Renee welcome us back each year as if we had only been gone a few days. They let us know what to expect for our evening deer viewing -- this year there were four fawns. This is really an exceptional place and we will certainly be back!

My husband and I have been visiting Boulder Junction for 15 years. We have stayed at the Boulder Junction Motor Lodge approximately five times a year for at least 5 years. We have always enjoyed our stay. The rooms are very clean. The owners are friendly and welcoming. Either Dan or Renee are in the lobby when we arrive and in the morning when we are heading out to enjoy the day. They are very accomodating and really work hard to provide a clean and relaxing environment to enjoy your vacation. We wouldn't stay any where else in Boulder Junction.

We are frequent visitors to Boulder Junction and always stay at the Boulder Junction Motor Lodge. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable (and have a mini-fridge). The hosts are very nice and always welcome us with smiles. They are friendly with all of their guests and make everyone feel at home. The deer viewing rooms facing the back are wonderful. Coffee and donuts/cinnamon rolls are offered in the morning along with pleasant conversations. We try to get back there as often as we can for our weekend fishing trips and wouldn't stay anywhere else. I highly recommend staying here.
