Stayed at the motel for almost exactly 7.5 hours on a Saturday night because we were in town for the Honky Tonk half marathon. Making the reservation online was a breeze, and received the confirmation email right away. Per their email, I advised them that we wouldn't arrive on Sat till 11:00 PMish. They emailed that they would leave the keys in their mailbox since the office closed at 8:00 PM, which they did (very convenient!!). So far, so good!
The room was simple but huge! The hubbo and I stayed in a 2 queen bed room. The wi-fi was free, the bed was very comfy, it was quiet and the place looked newly painted and clean! Each room had a parking spot and a bench outside. Unfortunately, we didn't stay long enough to enjoy the free Chula Vista passes or continental breakfast.
Since we had to check out before the office opened, we left the keys in the same mailbox with a note, and also gave them a call when they opened to make sure they received the keys, and they did.
PRO'S: location is just down from one of the main drags of the Dells. Price is VERY reasonable. Beds are comfy. Very nice and accommodating management. Chula Vista passes included. Free shuttle to Ho Chunk casino. Very kitchy/touristy and reminds me of the good motels while going on childhood road trips.
CON'S: the shower needs to have more water pressure. Ours was a wee bit weak. TV was still a tube TV (if you're the Dells and you watch TV in your room, you're in the wrong place). The air conditioning controls were a bit far reaching (Good AC, but the unit is high up...my 6'3" hubby had to stand on the stool to get to the controls....however, a stool WAS provided which was very much appreciated!:)
Despite the cons (which are very very little), however, I would definitely stay here again! It was a great place to stay and a GREAT bang for the buck!!
