“Super Clean”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We stayed at the Best Western Inn of Rice Lake, WI for one night on 8/17/12 and were extremely pleased. This place was all about cleanliness and sanitation in our opinion. The room was a little larger than what you would normally get for the price and was the cleanest motel room we have been in for many years.

The whole room was spotless. There wasn't a single water spot on the bathroom floor or anywhere else in the bathroom, The TV remote was in a carboard cradle which said the remote had been sanitized. Coffee maker was a one cup at a time brewer, which eliminated the possibility of unclean pots, etc.

Over the years we have stayed at other motels in Rice Lake as an overnight stop, but none of the others were nearly as clean as this one.

The staff was very courtious and freindly.

We will stop at the Rice Lake WI Best Western again next year.

We checked in at 10:00 p.m on August 15, 2012 and were handed our key. Upon entering our room, it was occupied by an older couple whom we had awoken! This establishment also needs to get rid of their old towels and buy new ones!!!

We have stayed here many times over the years and have always found it to be attractively furnished, quiet, comfortable beds and spotless bathroom and plenty of space for two people. Staff is always courteous and breakfast is very adequate for traveling and a good variety. We have stayed in several others in the Rice Lake area(when Best Western was full ) but keep returning the the Best Western for the comfort and price. .

Was given a first floor room for myself and family near the back of the property - quiet, away from to road, and really, a very clean, but basic room. It was very close to the parking lot - just two rooms in from the outside door, but never heard a sound from cars or other guests. No real view - it's actually a rather plain looking hotel from the outside, but actually delivers a better than expected experience once inside.

As usual, the AC was rather loud, but it cooled the room quickly and we were able to turn it off during the night. The TV comes with a special "sanitized" remote - interesting concept - sure I'll take it.

Breakfast was run by the same person who checked us in the night before -- didn't see any other staff, but she was nice and the array of foods was exactly what you'd expect from a breakfast bar -- with the addition of sausages and the ever-present waffle maker.

For a smaller town hotel, it was completely adequate and very reasonably priced. Haven't stayed elsewhere in Rice Lake, but would likely stay again when in town.

Got in late to find their pool was under renovation. Walls paper thin, could hear the conversations in the hall way word for word. Had coffee in room which was better than in the lobby. Not a good value.

Enjoyed a comfortable stay in a very clean, quiet room for a reasonable price. Courteous staff. I was invited to use the stairs to access my room on the 2nd floor. I assume there is no elevator, and that may be important for those who need to use an elevator.

This is the second time I have stayed in this hotel this fall for business. Their staff works very hard but is doing too many jobs. Both times I have checked in I have had to go look for someone to check me in. The second time I checked out, I couldn't find anyone to give my keys to, they are the front desk, breakfast stockers and many other duties so it makes it a challenge to check in or out quickly.

My main issue this last time was the heat was not turned on in my room at all. My room was freezing! It took over three hours on high heat with the door open to the haulways to even get it somewhat warm in my room. It was 35 degrees outside.

They do not have an elevator so if you stay on the second floor, be prepared to haul your stuff up stairs. Breakfast is adequate with a variety: waffles, coffee, cereal and a small amount of eggs and sausage (that has been there for awhile), breads, milk and juice.

This hotel is clean, which is important but nothing fancy. Adequate for a business trip, but it makes you that much happier when you finally get home to your own home.

Room Tip: Ask for a room down a ways from the lobby. They have a bar and pool so it can be a little noisy if...
