I stayed in this hotel for a week for work. Our room was about halfway down the hall and faced the parking lot on the level of the registration desk. The lights in the parking lot were so bright that the drapes couldn't keep all of the light out of our room at night. The desk clerk vacuumed the entry... More

This establishment messed up the reservation and did nothing to fix it and then messed up my credit card at check out. No towels were ever at the pool and the jets on the hottub did not work. Breakfast was the only plus to this hotel.

If you are visiting Wisconsin in February, it is probably either a business trip, or family occasion that you must attend. Our visit was the family type, so we needed a hotel for 5 days, but didn't plan it as a 'fun vacation'. There were lots of hotels out by the interstate that we could have used, but I really... More

We checked in, thought it would be cool to have a lakeside hotel. However our view was of the parking lot, but that wasn't the worse part. First our heater did not work, so we changed room. Then our sink had backed up and all this filth was coming into the sink. There wasn't anything maintenance could do because the... More

We had to sleep on top of our bed last night after being moved to three different rooms and after an attempt to have soiled linens in our room get clean linens.

This hotel is right on the waterfront by the marina, with a few restaurants within 200m. It's a bit shabby, but the rooms were clean and comfortable, the internet was good (although there was an issue on my floor so I moved room), and there's plenty of parking. The manager was really friendly and helpful, and the staff were pleasant... More
