“Great Quiet Place By The River”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

It's not new by any means ,but clean rooms great staff, has a pool and a quiet relaxing place to stay.
Bring a fishing pole and soak a line, playground for the kids, nice to sit out at night, and lots of natural beauty with nature.
I will stay again when in the area.
Great job Larry, and staff

We had a great time at the dartfordinn inn. It is on a side road and not on a busy highway. It is a quaint friendly place that I would return to over and over again. Best of all, the beds were very comfortable. The people were very friendly and accomadating. If you are down home people and don't always need the designer hotels this place ,is for you. I felt very comfortable here. Thanks Larry. Linda Rockey,

This motel has true Wisconsin flavor! We had a good stay at Dartford Inn. It's just far enough off the beaten path yet close enough to Green Lake's lake. It's super quaint and nestled in the woods... makes for a perfect evening of sitting and talking after a hard day boating. It is dated, but in a fun way! Takes me back! Lots of ol' fashion charm! It was very clean and the A/C worked great! We had plenty of room for the long boat trailer in the lower parking lot. Larry was wonderful & very hospitable and Tom-Tom the cat was sweet & welcoming too!

Room Tip: we had rooms #19 #20 and i liked it being by the back stairs. felt like we had our private entrance...

Just returned from the Dartford Inn. Yes it is old and somewhat outdated but the room was clean and it was the only place that had a pool. This place could be much nicer if they removed all the old broken gum and soda machines-what was the point of having then if they do not work. A storm came thru on Monday night and leaves and branches were everywhere by the room entrances..no one bothered to clean them away making the front of the motel look awful and unkept. Every outside trash can was over flowing and no one working there seemed to notice or care. With the exception of friends of the owners we were the only guest. The economy has really seemed to have affected this area unless you have a summer home there. I doubt I would stay there again. With just a little cleaning up this could be much nicer but i my opinion I think no one cares because they don't have much business.

Room Tip: If you are just looking for a basic room with OK pricing call..don't book online.

I spent a week here for work, and was very happy with my stay. It is a bit rustic, but has lots of character, a really nice owner and was the perfect place for me to relax in the evenings.

The reviews that raved about this hotel are very misleading. Everything was old and not in a charming way. The carpet (indoor/outdoor) was dirty, and the room had an odor. The bathroom had corroded soap dishes and the shower was tiny. We sent a picture of the bathroom to our daughter, and she commented- It looks like a prison. The office was a mess, and the furniture was filthy. I could keep going- it was really that bad- and when I travel I usually stay in budget motels, but never in anything as terrible as this.

Nice room to come back to after a very busy day for three days. It was great to come back to a quiet peaceful place after long days at the Air Show. Room 20 has a great view as well, being in the back and sitting out on the porch is was what I needed to relax and get ready for the next day. The rooms were clean and large-nice to be in a room that you are not tripping all over the place because it is small. The staff was friendly and helpful yet let of have our privacy as well. If we needed anything we did ask and it was taken care of.
