“Fall Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

My husband and I go the the Dells at least once a year to play and shop. We have stayed in many different resorts, hotels, and motels. Day's End Motel is a hidden gem. The couple (Rachel & Mark) who manage the motel could not of been nicer. Our room was very clean, the bed was comfy, the jet tub was great, and the room was a good size. We will for sure stay again. For the price, it does not get better!!!

I would have given them a 5 star rating, but they lost a star when we checked in due to their lack of prompt service when we got there. We had even called ahead and told them we were going to be coming in late (we had to add a day to our trip because of expected snowfall). Our only complaint was them not answering the "bell" when we got there late (after hours -they close their main office at 10pm), they even knew we were coming as I gave them a timeframe (around 11:30pm). Not sure if they didn't hear the bell or what, but my family had to wait a good 5-10 minutes out in the cold before they answered the door, so we could get a room. This was the perfect place to stay for cheap, especially since we already had a nice highend hotel booked for the following days in the Dells for a family vacation. Otherwise all was wonderful, customer service was great once we got in, and the room was very clean and nice for the cheap $50 price we paid.

The room was very clean, spacious, and fresh smelling no mold, musk or smoke smell. The management was very helpful and pleasant. Peacefull in a park like setting. We had a small dog with us an were able to keep with us for only $10 lot better than a dog kennel. Only a short drive from downtown. Would reccomend this motel and stay again next time I'm in the Dells

Room Tip: They all looked good

My wife & I have been going up to the Dells every year for a few days & always stayed at another motel until they recently treated us very rudely on the phone. Found this motel and had positive reviews so when I called I spoke with Rachel who spoke to me & treated me like family so we decided to try it. It was a pleasant surprise to find it was better than the motel we used to stay at. It's nothing real fancy but the room was big and clean with a great shower in it, the area was quiet and most of all Rachel & Mark who manage the property where two very nice people to deal with. If you don't expect alot and want a nice clean & reasonable place to stay then we suggest you try this one. When we go back again we will not hesitate in calling them. Thank you for a nice place to stay.

My boyfriend and I wanted to take a trip to the Dells. First we checked out all the larger resorts, like Kalahari, Great Wolf, The Wilderness etc.. but after reading reviews, we decided to stay at Americas Best Value Day's End Motel. As soon as we opened the door, the first impression was the cleanliness! The room smelled fresh and clean, and was a lot larger than I had imagined. It had a mini-fridge, which was important for us, as well as Dish, which was important for my boyfriend. We also were traveling with our dog, and there was plenty of area inside and out for her to play. The room was quiet, and the staff was great to deal with and very accommodating. We still went to Kalahari and did all of the other things you do when you go to the Dells, the thing is...we saved a lot of money staying here, and it wasn't a compromise. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, especially couples, who don't want to deal with the hustle and bustle of a large hotel, and just want a nice get-a-way. Plus, you park right outside your room, and when it's cold, that's nice :).

Room Tip: We were in a very spacious handicapped room w/a jet tub. Very nice.

Americas Best Value Day's End Motel, is a very cozy motel. It's quiet and very, very clean. Close enough to all that Wisconsin Dells has to offer, but not close enough that you are bothered by all the tourist stuff. This place is truly a jem. I will always stay her when traveing to the Dells area. If you looking for a clean, affordable and safe place to stay this is your motel.

When your objective is to save a few dimes and you aren't expecting all the frills, this is a nice place to stay. We stayed at Americas Best Value Day's End Motel when visiting the Dells for a basketball tournament. For the money, you can't go wrong staying here. Rooms are spacious and include a microwave, small refrigerator, coffee pot, and flat screen TV, no hair dryer, but one can be borrowed from the office. Everything is well kept, rooms smell clean and bed clothes are fresh. You're on your own for breakfast, but when in the Dells, if you're paying less than $60 for a room, you can hardly expect breakfast. It's only a 10 minute drive to several restaurants and fast food choices.

In the end, we got a good night's sleep and saved on expenses by staying here.

Room Tip: If highway noise bothers you, you may want to request a room further from the road.
