“What a motel should be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

This is a classic 1950's motor court on the outside. Inside, it's clean and comfortable, but little mid century remains in the room. But it was clean, quiet. No smells. No stains. Nothing broken. $76 including tax on a summer weekend night.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with family

Recommended motel to friend since reviews were good. Nasty! Nasty! Second night we decided to check out and stay at another hotel downtown. Went back on here to look at reviews again and noticed most of the reviews that give it 5 stars were created at same time and only reviewed this one motel. Obviously owner is making up profiles to beef up business. Definitely not something that's even worth being on top ten. Room smelled like smoke, bed uncomfortable, old furniture, bedding stained, old box TV's and have the old comforters that only the cheap hotels still use, probably only gets washed once a year.

Management and staff were very accommodating, room was beautiful, very clean and quiet. Excellent example of the American Roadside Motel. The Welch is definitely doing it right...and the coffee was good too!

I stayed in a small one bed room for 3 weeks while working in the area. The room was very clean from the start and kept that way by the excellent staff each day during my stay. I have stayed in many places, including pricey hotels in large cities and resorts. This room was as clean and fresh smelling as any I have been in. I would highly recommend this motel.

Selected this place based on TA reviews. We had a 2-bed room. Small, old, mom and pop-ish. Room clean. Grounds are so-so. Some deferred maintenance. No common hallways or lobby, so no place to escape in middle of night. All rooms open to outdoors. Resident owner friendly and helpful. Comfy beds for us. Not so for our friends a few doors away. They complained of bug bites, but do not seem to have become infested with bedbugs. We had no problem. We stayed on a busy fall weekend and the price was jacked up or inflated beyond that quoted. "These weekends are where we make our money."

Probably the cleanest, freshest smelling motel room we have stayed at in years. The bed was most comfortable, which gave us an excellent night's sleep. Room rate was probably the lowest senior rate in town. The staff was so obliging and friendly.
Will definitely stay at the Welch Motel, the next time we return to La Crosse.
