During a recent fishing trip to Wisconsin, we had booked a room at the Quality Inn in Minocqua, located just north of Route 70 on the west side of Route 51. We were going to meet with some friends, have dinner with them, and stay for a night or two before heading to a resort on Big Lake Chetac, Wisconsin. It was our first time at this Quality Inn and although the stay wasn't terrible, it was not great either; it wasn't quite what we had expected, and certainly nothing close to the normal standards to which we have become accustomed in our travels (and we travel a lot.)
The wall on which the room air conditioner was installed had a giant crack all the way around the unit (no attempt had been made to seal it), there had been no soap included when the room had been (I hope) cleaned, and the bedspread not only looked unclean, there were numerous spots on it. The coffee pot in the room was also not clean. Windows in the hallway to the exterior of the building were left open (apparently this had been the norm on numerous occasions, as there were water stains on the wood trim) – even though a severe storm was approaching – and the general feeling of the hotel was that up-keep was not an important item for the owners or cleaning crew.
Morning breakfast provided barely-lukewarm coffee, hard-boiled eggs and several cold cereals, along with make-them-yourself waffles. The breakfast experience was mediocre, but the downside of the meal was apparent when we watched as an employee re-supplied several of the edible breakfast items using his bare hands, something that was definitely not appetizing! I doubt if we would book another night at this hotel; it's not well taken care of.
