Reviewed January 24, 2013

I stayed there on my way back home from business, I was impressed at the cleanliness of the hotel, bar, and pool area. I will definitely stay there when I go skiing. Friendly, clean, good breakfast, at a great value, earns a 5 in my book!

If you want to pay $100 for a tired room with plastic cups, sandwiched between the Interstate and Granite Peak Ski area, with thin walls and no place to eat except the hotel restaurant - then this is the place for you! Be aware that the airport shuttle "amenity" is not free if you book through a 3rd party web site, and must be scheduled 24 hr in advance - a problem because this is not mentioned in the hotel's web site. If you're here to ski Granite Peak or spend time with a bunch if kids on a sports team, the hotel would be fine if it wasn't so grossly overpriced.

We are truly sorry your stay wasn't spectacular. We are constantly updating our property, one of our most recent updates being new televisions. Many guests appreciate the sanitary concept of pre-wrapped disposable cups, I’m sorry this point was not satisfactory to you. Our shuttle service is always available, however we do need advance notice to guarantee a driver will be available. We are sorry websites do not allow us to post detailed information in regards to specific services we offer, and our shuttle service is not posted as complimentary due to this. It’s always good to give us a call at 715-842-1616 to make requests/confirm requests. We strive to accommodate any request and was happy to make things right with you by providing a 4am shuttle to the airport at no charge. Please contact us if there is anything more we can do for you.

I will go back on business but this hotel offers a great family atmosphere too! Bar area is very nice and they gave out one free drink coupon! 5 minutes from skiing and snowboarding Granite Peak Ski Area! Local bar next door with great hit wings!

We just returned from two nights at the Best Western for a ski weekend and was very pleased. It is an excellent value for the price. Has a nice but slightly cold pool that the kids loved and a hot tub. For the best rooms, however, do not get one in the atrium area by the pool if you are a light sleeper as the pool is open until 11 pm and people like to hang out in that area. Best rooms are behind the doors on second floor. Also get a mountain side view as opposed to the highway as the highway noise is loud. Decent breakfast and friendly service. Thanks Heather!

Room Tip: See notes above. Not in pool/atrium area and best on second floor with mountain side view as opposed...

We stayed there for 2 nights on a skiing trip, and I have nothing bad to say about the hotel. For what I paid for a room I received a nice service, descent breakfast , clean rooms, swimming pool and jacuzzi. I would stay there again for sure.

I was with the group of "unrulely" 10 year olds. When we travel as a team we look at hotels that can accomidate our families. Besides the tournament the most important thing to the kids is the pool. Yes kids run in the hallway, but no they do not need to be told they are being watched every second on the survalence camaras. Nor do they need the staff member standing at the door peeking through the window for 15 minutes waiting for one of the kids to be running down the hall. The kids never left the pool viewing area except to go into rooms. The staff that was there from check-in and throughout the night were very unprofessional and resulted in a unnecessary event to end the night and our stay ended the next day. We chose to stay at a Holiday Inn in Stevens Point. I was a points member for Best Western, but I will not be staying at one anytime soon.

Rooms are old and need updating. Pool area was nice. Breakfast, although free, was one of the worse of my travels. Stay somewhere else if at all possible.

On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize your stay ended the way it did. As I stated in response to the reviews from other members of your team, Tecmo and Pombell, it is unfortunate the guest complaints couldn't be resolved without the police being called. We are constantly updating our facility and improving the level of service we provide. I'm very sorry we were not able to exceed your expectations.

Thank you for choosing Best Western for your winter getaway! Our domed tropical atrium truly offers a lot of space for you to gather and have fun playing billiards, arcades, swimming and more. We offer rooms away from pool, pool view, and pool side. Thanks again! Don't hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
