It was a great place to stay for the night. Beds were comfortable. The rooms were updated with flat screen, bathroom update and paint. Price was fabulous. Front desk people friendly. Soft water for showers Did have refrig., microwave, and WiFi. A good place to stay after a busy day at the Casino.

When reading the reviews about this property being out dated but clean we decided to give it a try. When we pulled up and saw the outside we were not sure what to expect when we opened the door but much to our surprise it was very clean. They could stand to get new sheets and towels since they were...

Old school motel, and it is exactly what you would expect. The room has an actual key. The staff was courteous and polite. The beds were very comfortable. I saw no evidence of insects of any kind. They are pet friendly, and it was fairly quiet. The AC worked perfectly and wasn't overly loud. It had a fridge and a...

Based on reviews I thought I would give a try since I was going solo and for the cheap price my expectations were low but unfortunately obviously not low enough. The gentleman at the desk was friendly enough... but that's were the pleasantries ended. I opened the door to my room and it stank like dirty, sweaty shoes... unbelievably musty...

I stay here every year on my vacation to Devil's Lake state park. Clean and quiet. Walking distance to a great grocery store and bowling alley and convenience store. Rooms have new flat screen tv's, coffe maker, fridge and Microwave. Vinny, the owner is a friendly, personable guy and the housekeeping staff is friendly too. I highly recommend this motel.

Stayed here last year and it's still as good as it was then. Clean rooms and convenient to most everything, some within walking distance. There is some kind of park in back which is nice for walking the dog and it appears to be a very safe neighborhood. Close to the Wisconsin Dells but a lot quieter and cheaper too....

PET FRIENDLY! We've stayed there several times with our 9# Pomeranian. Always a very satisfactory experience. The motel is located in a very safe neighborhood. Plus they are 1/2 block from a great Mexican restaurant.

Clean room, most helpful staff, and a restaurant next door that gives you a discount if you show them your room key. easy driving to the Dells and the casino without pay high prices for their rooms. It's quiet at night. there's a shuttle to the casino. Good Local restaurants and gas stations.
