hi, i have stayed at welch mtoel in la crosse, wisconsin this past weekend and i must tell you it was great stay. room was clean, no smell, no hairs. seems like they have remodeled their bathrooms. it looks great. i really thought value was great because i found it cheaper than chain hotel. i did not need any breakfast or any fancy stuff like pool or hot tub. so this was fine for me. it seems pretty safe place to get away.

We stayed at this motel for a week for a big fishing tournament. I found this hotel on the interent. Since we are not from this area there was no way of knowing if it was a good place or not. The previous reviews were very helpful so I hope this is helpful also.

We all enjoyed the stay very much. If you are a fisherman this is a great place to stay. There is room for your boat and an electrical outlet to charge your boat batteries. Each room door opens to the outside.. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and the beds slept good. There is nothing fancy at this motel but the friendliness of the staff and even the other occupants made staying here a great experience. There were a few people there who come to La Crosse at least once a year and they always return to this motel. The rooms have a mini fridge and miocrowave which was wonderful to have. I recommend this motel and we will most definitely stay there again should we find ourselves in the area again.

I picked this place based on all the excellent reviews. It is clean, pretty comfortable, no bad smells, and the fact that they take dogs is cool. The young man at the front desk was very nice. I like the fact that your car is right outside your door-convenient. As for the value, it was ok. There were a few other places in town that were $20 cheaper, and had a free breakfast. So, the value was not it's best point. I'm not sure it is worth $80 a night with no free breakfast. The rooms are pretty basic. The fridge and microwave are nice, though. The toilet ran continuously unless you pushed the handle up. The bed linens were stiff. The very bright light shined in through the top of the curtains all night. We had to put the blanket over the top of the window to sleep.

My husband and I stayed here for a night while on a motorcycle trip. The owners were extremely nice and let us check in early when we showed up prior to check-in time.

The rooms themselves were average but clean. We had a microwave and fridge, which was very convenient. The bathroom was nice and seemed recently retiled.

The location in La Crosse was good as it was right off Hwy. 35 and only a few minutes from downtown. It was easy to find but also not far from attractions or restaurants.

We would definitely recommend staying as the service and quality of the room was very good for the price.

I kid.

We love this place. It's always clean and quiet, reasonable as hell, and who can beat the charm of a pink-tiled bathroom? Straight old-school motel, locally owned, AND they take dogs. We stay whenever we're in town.

clean rooms with friendly staff. simple and quiet rooms with affordable prices. all the hotel in town were twice more expensive than this one. did not have pool, hot tub, breakfast or any fancy stuff, and that was fine with us. we did not need any fancy stuff. over all if you are just looking for simple and clean place at affordable price, i would highly recomand this place

Clean room with a fridge. Much nicer than you would expect from a drive-by of this mom & pop place. They do a good job keeping up the vintage charm, but I think eventually they will have to replace some of the fixtures in the bathroom. Everything's clean and functional, but the place is old, so don't expect all the modern comforts. Service was friendly when we checked in. Free coffee was pretty terrible though. For me, the worst part was the location. It's kind of a drag to be on the edge of town if you want to walk to any shops, bars or restaurants. After a long day of driving, the last thing I want to do is get in the car again to go find dinner.
