“Great place unless you have pet allergies”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

We found the hotel to be very nice and the location was great. We were able to walk to restaurants. Pool was on the smaller side but worked perfectly. Breakfast was equal to that of a budget hotel that offers it for free. Save your 6 dollars a person and go to Eagles Nest or another good local restaurant. Our biggest complaint was that this is a pet friendly hotel. We first realized this was pet friendly when I sat on the couch and was covered in white dog hair. It wouldn't have been much of a problem except one of our children has severe pet allergies. After two nights of staying here, we have a very sick child. We learned our lesson to always ask before making reservations about pet friendly rooms. If they have rooms or a floor that is not pet friendly we would stay here again. Otherwise, this won't be an option for future trips to Wausau.

Stayed March 2014, traveled with family

This was a very nice hotel for a ski trip especially when your spouse does not ski. The free shuttle allowed her to have the car if she needed it and the enclosed walkway to the mall meant she did not have to go outside in the the cold. Internet was free and very reliable--not many full service hotels provide free internet--it was a nice and needed service. The free continental breakfast was fine for our needs as we are cereal people in anyway. But they also had fresh fruit and a variety of juices to choose from besides orange juice. The attached restaurant was excellent

This hotel is very nice, VERY clean, and pretty quiet. The pool room hours are long, and the continental breakfast is delicious. We will stay again, even if we don't need to visit Wausau for any reason.

We stayed here for our 5th wedding anniversary. Everything was very top notch and very quiet. I can see why the business people would like it. All of the little extras are there. It was the most I have ever paid for a jaccuzzi suite but I did get my money's worth. I will probably wait and do it for my tenth anniversary.

We were extremely pleased with our stay at Jefferson Street Inn. The location downtown was the best. We were able to walk to restaurants and enjoy Wausau's wonderful downtown. It was nice not to have to get into our car and drive once it was parked in convenient parking structure, connected to hotel by indoor skywalk ( very nice with winter weather). Hotel staff very pleasant, always had a smile. We had a standard room which was spacious,comfortable chairs.

The hotel is near a ski mountain for outdoor enthusiasts and attached to a mall for those who want to stay indoors. We had a delicious seafood dinner in the attached restaurant, and enjoyed breakfast in the cozy coffee shop in the attached mall.

The Jefferson is the only place I stay when I am in town for business. The staff is always friendly and they recognize me when I call to make a reservation and when I check in. The rooms are always clean and well stocked. The City Grill has great food and it's always clean and a good atmosphere. They also make an awesome White Russian. Tastes just like ice cold chocolate milk. The Jefferson is centrally located to other establishments and usually within walking distance. I always rave about the amenities and recommend it to anyone I know is traveling to Wausau. Even if they aren't traveling there I recommend it as the only place to stay.
