“Prepay for cold room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Stayed here on 1/12/13 for a volleyball tournament. We were required to put a deposit on the room, which was essentially a full payment in order to hold the room. The room was very cold even after having heater set at 75 all day and night. Bathroom was really cold. Wi-Fi didn't work and the beds need to be replaced. We had to cancel an upcoming reservation due to another commitment and were charged a $15 "handling fee" as this reservation also had to be prepaid. I was going to mention how irritated I was during checkout, but I could tell that she's the type that gets really defensive (as can be gleaned by her responses to the less than average reviews). On the positive side, the rooms were clean.

BTW, this is not a hotel. It is a motor lodge or motel and the rates would be substantially less in any other city.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the Dells. The hotels are really over priced. It's probably worth the drive...

Thank you for your review about your stay here with us, I take all comments into consideration when brought to my attention. Our policy for deposit to guarantee a room reservation with us is the first night plus taxes. Which if you are staying only 1 night yes the room would be paid in full prior to arrival.The heats get turned up to your comfort level first thing in the morning so when you arrive they are very comfortable. If there was an issue with your heat I wish you would of called to the front desk and we could of checked it out right away to correct any problem. I had the internet company install a new modem for faster service around 12pm on Saturday and service was out for a short period of time but then back on in a timely manner. I work at addressing any issues to keep my property well kept and updated. Our beds are less than 2 years old and are memory foam mattresses. Being that we are more of a seasonal business in the Dells there are 3-4 months where most rooms wont get used. Everybody has there own sleep comfort and I did a lot of research before I purchased my mattresses. When you received your email confirmation for your reservation, in there our cancellation policy is clearly written out explaining the handling charge which covers processing of the credit cards. Sorry that you feel this way about your stay but we do try our hardest to accommodate all our guest and make sure their stay was a pleasant as possible. Sincerely, Tanya

We were in town for a volleyball tournament and the Krause family was very accormodating. The hotel has been renovated recently and the rooms are large! We had a lot of gear with us and we still had plenty of room to be comfortable. Reasonable rates and very helpful. Thank you Eddie and Tanya! Kerri E. from MI

Room Tip: I believe all rooms will be nice.

We stayed here the last two times we visited the Dells. The price is reasonable for the Dells. The rooms are clean and I was told they remodeled them a year or two ago. The hotel is located a short walk to the shops, restaurants and many attractions.

Our hotel room was newly remodled, clean and quiet. Beds were very comfortable.

If you are looking to get away from the main stream hotels and stay in the heart of classic Wisconsin Dells, then this is the place to go. We will be back this summer for sure!

We stayed at Ambers Hideaway for our anniversary and we were very pleased with everything! The room was very clean and the whole staff was very welcoming! We stayed in the whirlpool suite which gave it a nice touch. We will be staying here again.

Located a few blocks outside of the main downtown area of Wisconsin Dells, this motel offers a lower cost alternative to the big chain hotels and resorts that serve this popular destination. The motel offers large, spacious rooms that are simply decorated, but immaculately clean. The soft pillows and superb memory foam mattresses should insure everyone gets a good night sleep. The bathroom sink counter is a little small and basic, but usable. The room I booked had an older style Jacuzzi tub, which was still very nice and relaxing. The tub doubles as the shower, so the higher than normal step up into the tub to take a shower may not be for everyone. The heater/air conditioner sits in the far back corner of the room, so air flow is not the best and it can take a while for the whole room to have the same temperature. The room includes a small microwave and refrigerator. There is ample parking space in front of each room. If road noise is a concern, then I recommend one of the rooms in the back of the motel complex. The owner is very friendly and helpful/knowledgeable about local attractions. Overall, a simple, but comfortable alternative to a chain hotel or resort.

This is one of the cleanest, comfortable and friendly motels we have stayed in. We
travel up north to visit our daughter in MN. this is a half way stop for us and we couldn't ask for a better place to stay. We have been staying there for 2 years and will not stay anywhere else in or near the Dells. The rates are great, Tanya is a great owner and hostess. We can't say enough good about this place. The rooms are immaculate, beds are very comfortable and the bathroom is the cleanest I have ever seen. We will be back in the spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks Tanya
