Bathroom floor needs grout cleaned immensely as does the entry floor grout. Dusting is needed as the lamps were covered in it. Toilet had black stains down it and I am fairly certain there was a bloody booger on the wall next to the shower. Shower head was loose and spraying all over. The wedding music was super loud the floor was shaking and we were in room 454. No outlets near the bed was disappointing. Email confirmation just days before arrival said restaurant was open and it wasn't. Also says spa onsite and Aveda products which was false. For my taste, the bed was rock hard but the pillows were good. Beds are hard to please everyone so that's not a deal breaker. I am not sure I would go back as breakfast was subpar and the room needs some serious TLC. We could hardly take a shower.

Very nice hotel located in the center of downtown Wausau. Clean and nicely updated. Walking distance to many restaurants bars and shops. Very dog friendly. Very quiet even though it was a busy weekend with a wedding event going on. Special thanks to the manager Chris who straightened out a mistake in our reservation with Booking. Com. Ben at the reception desk and my new friend Sawyer. I told you I was going to leave you a review. All staff were pleasant to deal with!

After receiving an email confirmation which listed all their Covid safety precautions, we saw several unmasked staff in the lobby walking around guests (one was coughing) and when we inquired about it, I was simply told “ we forget sometimes”. After checking into our room, I found a pill on the floor which turned out to be a street narcotic and the mini fridge had someone’s else leftovers and old food inside. They never answered the front desk phone so after trying for over 15 minutes we had to go back to the lobby and wait in line to receive a different room with no apologies. When I asked for a checkout extension of 1/2 hr as I had a Zoom meeting, I was told it would be s as n extra $50. Our friends found dirty underclothes under their bed in their suite. I would not recommend this “boutique hotel” under any circumstances. Unsafe, not cleaned properly, unfriendly and unhelpful staff and management and overall poor service.

Response from Robin Bucholz, General Manager at Jefferson Street Inn
Responded 30 Aug 2021
Hello, I wanted to reach out and say thank you for letting us know about your experience at Jefferson Street Inn. I have passed your concerns onto our Housekeeping staff and have discussed the newly reinstated COVID mandates with staff as well and reminded them that the mandates have been reinstated and to be cognitive of this fact. I am disheartened to see that you missed our apology and did not notice the discount we did apply to your stay. While we strive to be as accommodating as possible for our guests at times we are simply not able to offer a late checkout due to new guests arriving and time needed to properly prepare their rooms, the late checkout fee allows us to keep staff over longer than scheduled in order to make sure the room is properly prepared with our stringent COVID cleaning procedures so that all our guests can feel safe and secure. Looking forward to seeing you soon and thanks again! JSI

Stayed here twice for work in the last two weeks. Both times, the workers at the desk were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and spacious. I'm very sensitive to smells, and my rooms were very clean and fresh. The towels were very soft. Wifi was perfect for working. Met the Marketing Manager over breakfast and he was very friendly and I enjoyed chatting with him. Will come back again and would recommend to anyone.

First impressions of the beautiful architecture are beautiful. The hotel smells clean and my room was very clean. The towels were soft and plush. The wifi had the bandwidth I needed to do my job. The manager greeted us at breakfast and shared the upcoming community events in the area.
