“Affordable, clean, friendly hotel!”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

We stayed here for 4 days last week for my niece's wedding. This is a very cute, clean, nicely landscaped motor lodge. Pool, hot tub, very friendly staff. Our room was plenty big enough, with vanity sink outside of toilet/shower area, which is something we look for. Fridge and coffee maker in room, no microwave. The rooms are nicely decorated...we had cute plaid sheets on our comfortable beds. They give you keys here, with the room number on the tag. Nice touch. Two negative things here, "pet rooms" building was very noisy at night. I really did not sleep well here because of the noise. Lots of people coming and going at all hours, making no effort what-so-ever to be quiet. The walls are very thin, and we could hear our neighbors carrying on conversations late at night and VERY early morning. If we had occasion to stay here again, I would request a room in the main building. The location of this hotel is fantastic. Short distance from downtown St. Germain, short drive from Eagle River, Woodruff, and Minocqua, all fun places to explore. We went to the flea market in St. Germain, and rafting in Eagle River, all in one morning. Breakfast choices are very limited. Some cut up fruit would be a great addition, but at least they had waffles. I would definitely stay here again, but not in the pet building.

Room Tip: Stay in the main building if you don't need a pet room.

We have stayed here twice while visiting friends who rented a cabin nearby. It is an older motel, but very well maintained. Staff is very friendly. Pool area is nice and decent playground for younger ones. For our 2013 stay, we did have 2 complaints : 1. The breakfast choices were very limited. Only 2 cereals, sad looking fruit, breads, yogurt and waffles. Just a little bit of variety doesn't have to cost much; 2. Check out time is 10am sharp. They will not extend it until 11am like most places.

Stayed there for 3 night while visiting my niece at summer camp. Overall, would not stay again. They changed our reservation from 2 doubles to 1 king and a whirlpool. Not cool since I was sharing a room with my mom. They pretty much did not care, but after 2 hours, they finally changed us.

Stayed July 4th weekend. This is an older property, but very well maintained and extremely clean. How old? They still use the "room key on a numbered tag" method. We had a minor mechanical problem with the whirlpool in the room, but it was tended to quite timely. Breakfast buffet provide the usual fare except no breakfast meats. Amenities exceed expectations - indoor pool, children's playground, outdoor tables and chairs, laundry, vending. Staff were exceptional - friendly, eager to serve, pleasant. Have stayed here before, will do so again when in the Eagle River-St. Germain area.

Room Tip: Try for the rooms in the Main Building. Other rooms are drive-up type, a bit noisier.

We had made a last minute reservation with the Rustic the night before we were supposed to be in town for some wedding planning, and had to cancel. We were unaware at the time of the cancellation policy and Mike was incredibly understanding. We truly appreciate customer friendly businesses-as we've had an interesting situation with a room block and customer setvice at another motel in the area we no longer recommend to anyone. (that motel sold the rooms we had blocked off wo telling us)

We have a block of rooms for our wedding in October w/the Rustic, and we also recommend the Rustic to any friends that are going into town soley based on the service we received while making the block etc. I have all, but one time encountered very friendly staff here. Very customer service oriented, and down to earth!! Thank you to all of the staff and we are glad to be sending people to you when we can!:)

We stay at this motel each year, and are impressed with the effort they put into making your stay comfortable.
We appreciate the pull-chains on the lights, the extra touches like lots of hooks, a big hanging bar, a bench for your suitcase, and many other things.
We have tried other motels in the area and this is the only one we continually rebook.

We again spent our week Up North and stayed at Rustic Manor the full week. As usual, everything was great and the services outstanding. This is our fourth year at Rustic Manor.
