You can't go wrong with this hotel. A perfect stay from check in to check out. The rooms are condiminum sizes with great views over the lake. Another plus for this hotel is that you get resort type locations. Your average resorts do not provide breakfast but here you get free continental breakfast & free parking.

Room Tip: From what I could tell there are no bad rooms at this hotel. I guess if you get a top floor room the...

Location, views and value...The Pointe has it all. Situated right on highway 51 in Minocqua it is easy to find and right in the heart of Wisconsin's "up north" country. Leave your car in the parking lot and take the 10 minute walk across the bridge to downtown Minocqua to dine or explore the shopping. Located atop a hill it has great panoramic views whether you are standing on the edge of the parking lot or at the edge of Lake Minocqua. I've stayed here in the spring, summer and fall (my favorite) and the scenery is always great. This area is renowned for fishing, water skiing, snowmobiling, sight seeing, quiet, wildlife...you name it. One place I would definitely recommend checking out while there is Little Bohemia restaurant in Manitowish Waters (about a half hour NNW). The site of John Dillnger's shootout with the FBI in 1934, and Johnny Depp's shootout with the FBI in 2009, it's a quaint northwoods restaurant with very good fare, well priced, beautiful setting and a bit of authentic history. For the money, The Pointe is a very good value. The only complaint I would have is with their continental breakfast. I found it a bit lacking, served entirely using styrofoam plates/cups and plastic utensils and much of the food they did provide ran out halfway through the designated breakfast hours.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms near the bridge as there will be a lot of road noise. The rooms in back have wonder...

We had a great time at The Pointe earlier this week. We stayed two nights and the room (2021) was clean and comfortable and the view off the balcony was fantastic. Mid week pricing makes it very affordable. We will be staying there again!!

Dear Wayne,

We are happy you had a great time during your stay with us. Your accommodation was a Studio Unit and yes they do have unobstructed views of beautiful Minocqua Lake. Our hospitality team take great pride in offering updated, clean, well maintained rooms for our guests comfort and relaxation. And, as you state, the balcony deck was fantastic; each Studio and all our Suites offer either walk-out balcony decks or patios with furniture to enjoy the outdoors from their room --- a nice amenity.

Thank you for your review and we hope you will allow us to host your next stay when visiting Wisconsin's beautiful Northwoods.

The Pointe Hotel is perfectly situated in Minocqua, close to restaurants and shops, but on the lake and close to nature too. The one bedroom suite, which included a kitchen and dining/living area, seemed small due to the amount and size of furniture in the rooms as well as the overabundance of northwoods decor. Regardless, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Aside from the call of a loon early in the morning, the property was very quiet and well maintained. All in all, I recommend the Pointe for its location and modern conveniences.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of The Pointe. It is important we hear from our guests as it tells us how well we're doing taking care of our guests. The Pointe does have a wonderful setting and our location is well positioned making dining, attractions and shopping easily accessible. Our condominium units offer more than a motel room and are a great value for a great stay. The loons cruising our shoreline in the early morning hours and numerous eagles perched lakeside in our towering pines are a common highlight of many guest stays. Nature at its best! In closing, than you for lodging with us and we appreciate your recommendation; hope to see you again, soon!

Stayed two nights at the Pointe Hotel and Suites. The rooms were very nice. Clean and very nicely decorated. They did not have some of the ammenedies you would expect in a suite type room. There were no toiletries in the bathroom - shampoo, conditioner, etc. Had a small kitchen area with refrigerator, stove and micro, but very limited on utensils, etc. and no pots or pans. No towels for the kitchen area - had to use the bathroom hand towels.

A note in the room indicated that they did not "clean" the room every day. They would only change the sheets, vacuum and do the bathroom every fourth day. We did get clean towels each day, but only if they were left in the bathtub. If they were on the towel bar or shower rod, they would assume we were using them again. This whole thing kind of turned us off. The rooms were reasonable ($125.00 on Thursday, and $165.00 for Friday). Would think you should get clean towels and sheets for that price......

The pool was very nice, they offered a small breakfast in the morning that was very nice and plentiful. No little shops or cafe in the hotel. Ice was only available for $2.00 a bag from the front deak. Have never been at a hotel that didn't have an ice machine.

The hotel was nice but would like to have had some of this information about what was there and what wasn't there - could plan better instead of being surprised.

Room Tip: Third floor room are nice - good view from the balcony and a very nice breeze.

Dear Carolyn,

Thank you for your review of your stay as our guest. We appreciate guest input as it is used as a great barometer to measuring our product and service.

Our room bathrooms are equipped with a "total body" shampoo product that is devised for both body and hair cleansing. In using this product, we reduce the waste of many plastic bottles that are harmfull to the environment. However, individualized hygiene products are available by request. Also, as part of our "green" initiative to reduce the use of energy, water and detergents, our hotel follows a long standing practice of many lodging properties and condo-hotels to promote the reuse of bed and bath linen.

Thank you for your comments on the pool area. This is our "flagship" amenity and we take great pride in providing a safe, clean and comfortable environment for relaxation.

Our Suites provide an icemaker in each refrigerator. For guest convenience, without having to leave the property, bags of ice are available to fill picnic coolers for a day out-and-about, or to provide a greater quantity of ice for room needs. All Suites provide cook and dish wares and kitchen dish cloths and towels are a standard provision. This may have been an oversight at the time of room set-up, and for that I apologize.

Thank you for staying with us and the valuable input shared. Our goal is simple; to make every guest stay an experience second to none. We hope to see you in the future.

We stayed one night in the one bedroom suite. Very clean and quiet. The grounds were really nice. They had a walking trail. We caught a bunch of fish off the pier. The Pointe is close to town but still had a "getaway" type feel. Not sure why someone would give it a terrible review. The pool, sauna, spa and exercise area were all fine. The continental breakfast was the standard fair. They did have sausage and potatoes which was cool. I would definitely come back. Even heard some loons on the lake!!
