“great choice in wausau”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

I was there for work so client recommended the hotel and it was a great choice in downtown. All the comforts of a modern hotel -although room only had shower. Wish that the airport shuttle ran later than 8pm (I called at 8:10) but its a small town so probably not many late flights. I think taxi ride was around $42 with tip. Free continental breakfast had a lot of options.

The Jefferson Street Inn is centrally located and should be convenient for whatever brings you to Wausau. Traveling with family, we had a standard two-bed room and a one-bedroom suite with a good-sized sitting area and a separate bedroom. The two units were joined by a connecting door. The suite had a whirlpool tub that was not separated from the sleeping area by a wall or door, so keep that in mind if you are planning to use that amenity.

The hotel is very quiet and I'd highly recommend it for light sleepers. It's a bit quirky in that it is integrated with an office building and when you walk from the parking garage across the street (it's connected by an enclosed sky bridge, which you'll want in the winter) you find yourself facing office suites. We missed the elevator to the rooms the first time through. Not a complaint, just an observation. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast is from the Hampton Inn/Fairfield Inn playbook - a bit basic for a hotel of this quality, but adequate.

There are good restaurant and bar options within walking distance of the hotel (try the Back When Cafe for a very good, leisurely dinner). All in all, a very good stay.

This hotel is nice and a convenient location. However, when they send you a confirmation with the total you owe, they fail to tell you that you will also pay for parking there, which seems very ridiculous in a small town like that. At those prices, I expect to have free parking.

Efficient, friendly staff, very clean, nice rooms, excellent breakfast options! We stayed with several couples and everyone was very pleased with the service and accommodations. Perfect location for downtown/square activities! Within walking distance of many restaurants and the 400 block.

Very clean and comfortable. Excellent food, value, ambiance at hotel restaurant. We had to cancel our third night at the last minute; staff accommodated our request. Continental breakfast was adequate.
