My family and I recently stayed at the Best Western American Heritage Inn in Spooner, WI while my son participated in a hockey tournament at the Spooner Ice House. I was very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I have stayed in my share of "not so nice" hotels in small towns during our hockey travels....but not this one! Hotel is well maintained and staffed with friendly, helpful employees. Rooms, although a bit on the small side, are very clean and appear to have been recently updated. Beds and pillows were comfy and hotel was quiet. For a nice little bonus, our room overlooked a river behind the hotel....great view! Overall, a great stay and a great bargain! Highly recommend:)

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side of the hotel overlook river...great, peaceful view!

We have stayed at this motel multiple times in the past few years and we have never been disappointed. The price is always surprisingly low and the facility is spotless. The rooms have microwaves and small fridges and are quite comfortable. James at the front desk is always a welcome sight and he is always eager to assist with any issues. The breakfast is delicious and very nicely presented, and always fresh. We are usually passing through, and Spooner offers several excellent choices for dining. Our favorite is the Market which always has fresh and imaginative selections, and there is always something on the menu for vegetarians.

Room Tip: Rooms with a river view are quite lovely.

Spooner is my favorite stopping place when traveling from the St. Louis area to northern Minnesota or Ontario, Canada. Located next to one of Wisconsin's state trails and the Yellow River, it has a north-woods feel not found at other places I've tried. Spooner is pretty small and quiet but there is a good small restaurant and a McDonalds close by. The staff is always friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is great, especially eaten on the deck outside. The pool and hottub are great amenities, especially after a long day of driving. I have stayed here several times and have never been disappointed. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms in the back face the river; front side rooms face the parking lot/street. I like the second fl...

We were greeted by a nice friendly young man. He was very accomodating by open doors, asking if he could assist with luggage and even gave us some awesome restaurant selections. The one we chose was great. The room was very cleaned. Besides the usually hand soap, body wash, we were given toothburshes, razors, shaving cream, toothpaste and even a couple of comb. Breakfast was usual continental breakfast, over looking deck, which you could sit on if you would like. The lady at front desk was again friendly and very accomodating. Would stay here again and would recommend to travelers. Smaller community, but great service and hometown friendliness.

The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and spacious. Breakfast room was clean with the typical hotel breakfast. Hotel has a deck in back that over looks the river. I would stay here again.

My husband and I were in Minnesota on vacation and I sprained my ankle. He wanted to get me back home to West Virginia so we started out the same day. We got as far as Spooner, WI and decided to check out the Best Western for the night.

Not only did we find it affordable, we found Jason to be the sweetest person and very caring. He saw that I was hurt and was genuinely concerned. He told my husband, after I got settled into my room, that he would do anything we needed, just to ring for him.

The room had two double beds so I propped my bad foot on one and laid back on wonderfully soft pillows and on great comfortable bed! It was the best sleep - besides my foot hurting.

Jason was our knight in shining armor at this Oasis in our time of trouble. I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone!
