“Convienient and Cheap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

The rooms were good though rather plain. Mine had only a small window facing the parking lot. Parking was close by. It was a few (5) blocks to the downtown party area and that was hopping with a college age crowd. The attached breakfast restaurant was good but had limited hours. There was an outdoor area with 2 tables and though not very scenic it was a nice place to enjoy a sandwich in the sun or a late night beer.

Room Tip: Try the pancakes in the AM.

True, this hotel isn't the Hilton. But coming back from a road trip to the West Coast, my boyfriend and I just wanted to sleep. Having no shampoo wasn't a big deal. We had our own. There was a liquid soap dispenser in the shower. Having a spartan room wasn't a big deal either--we just wanted to rest up and have breakfast in the cafe. The bed is a little old and worn and the TV was small but we both slept fine. I didn't notice any excessive noise. The breakfast in the attached cafe is good and cheap and the host was cool--not sure if he was English or Scottish but he had a great accent.
If you're looking for a relaxing weekend getaway, I'd recommend a different motel. But if you want an economical place to crash for a night or two and you don't need lots of amenities, check it out.

Don't be fooled by the pictures, this place is a dump. Cinderblock walls, no box springs, strange smells and stranger stains on carpets, both in and out of rooms. No individual soap, no shampoo, no hairdryer, no wifi (at least when we were there.) And the 4 cop cars looking for the fugitives in the morning was the kicker. If you stay here, bring lots of hand sanitizer, absolutely everything you might need, and money for the coffee company downtown, as the coffee here wouldn't even rate as good tea.

Room Tip: to choose a good room, go somewhere else.

The motel was cheap and served our purpose for a place to stay. It was basically clean....clean bed, bathroom, chairs. Windows and hall fixtures had cobwebs. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There are no fridges or microwaves or anything extra in the rooms...very, very basic. We would stay there again.

Downtown La Crosses' Guest House is a clean well kept economy lodging staffed by friendly, caring and accommodating people. I stay there often and think of it as my home away from home. A word of warning: If you go into the morning diner wearing a Vikings Jersey coffee will be $9 a cup. Earl of Wabasha

Room Tip: I always stay in assigned rooms facing parking

I stayed here for 4 days and nights and couldn't be happier with the service. Although we traveled with approx. 35 people, the staff was more than willing to make our stay as comfortable and easy as possible. We worked odd hours, leaving when the sun went down and coming home to sleep as the sun came up. The motel was absolutely quiet, allowing our vampire sleeping schedules to adjust easily without disturbance.

Also, I have a cat that I could not leave home, and they were willing to put him up with me free of charge! You can't ask for more than that, even though I knew my pet wouldn't destroy a thing.

Breakfast in the dinner was always served promptly, the pricing is phenomenal, and great taste. Made on the spot, and right in front of you.

The motel was literally a place to lay our heads (during the day), but the staff make it a place to return to time and time again. Down to earth kind of people that want nothing more from you than to have a pleasurable stay and good conversion.
I will definitely stay here again when in the area.

We have used this motel for 10 plus years and always go back. Just completed a three week extended stay. We chose this motel because of location, staff, cleanliness, and the value. The staff worked with us to accomodate our extended stay due to the very busy Oktoberfest celebration. We have always and will continue to recommend this motel.
