    « comfortable »

    I would recommend the hotel, not the restaurant. The hotel staff is great and room comfortable. Liked having coffee and refrigerator in the room. Quiet and easy to access other sites in the area. The value of the hotel is good too.

    « Marinette Best Western the very Best »

    Another awesome stay at the Best Western Riverfront Inn! The accommodations were perfect. We had a room facing the river which was just beautiful. The staff is wonderful and go out of there way to make everything as it should be. Not a single worry or problem when you stay here!

    « Short Weekend »

    The hotel is a bit old with the usual slow elevators but I found our room to be very nice. The bed was excellent and the wifi worked great. We had no issues during our stay and if in the area I would stay again. Our room has a nice view of the river with all the ducks.

    « Old and tired hotel »

    Staff is friendly. Hotel is old and tired. Several items in our room of concern. Open panel in bathroom to open chute with electric cables. Dangerous!!! Wi Fi in our room only worked in a corner. One small shampoo- no conditioner or lotion. Room coffee maker did not work. These may seem small but when you are paying a certain price everything should be in good condition. Door to the room did not shut well and was very shaky. Breakfast- it was buffet and was TERRIBLE! Scrambled eggs were instant.Hard boiled eggs tasted off and had an odor as if they were old. No oatmeal which would have helped. Only cold cereal. Had to ask for coffee refills even though the waitress was not busy.

    « Vacation »

    It was a short vacation of the Michigan area that was recommended following three extensive surgeries at several hospitals and several recovery programs that covered over six months. During this time I had lost over thirty five pounds and the hospitals stopping several viruses and infections in my body and leg.

    « The BEST hotel experience EVER! »

    I came to Marinette to work at Marinette Marine for a week. When I arrived, the front desk man "Carlos" was very nice and fast at checking me in. It honestly took less than 5 minutes. "Lexi" was also very nice. The housekeeping staff is very thorough and kept my coffee station extra stocked per my request. My bed was very comfortable. I ordered room service from the Avenue Grille and Bar and my food was great and so was the server. Every employee I talked to here was very professional, always smiling and always asked if there was anything else they could do for me. Now that's service! The only complaint I have would be the small parking lot. It was always almost full when I returned from work due to the restaurant and bar being full. I will be returning in a few weeks to work at the shipyard again and I'm happy to be returning here!

    « Fantastic Hotel in Marinette »

    New Front Desk Manager Bonnie Menacher does an excellent job of welcoming and administering to all of her staff. Carlos and Jenny are also very professional and welcoming. Sue in the breakfast area is wonderful and always makes certain that you are well attended to, with a tremendous free breakfast. The housekeeping staff is great, as the rooms are very clean and comfortable. There is a nice pool and hot tub and workout area. You will enjoy your stay at this hotel!

    « A gem in a small town »

    While on a business trip it's nice to have a place to go and relax and prepare for the next day. I would gladly return to this hotel on my next visit to Marinette. Some would expect poor service or quality in such a small town but I experienced neither. The view of the river was amazing, especially with the ducks and geese.

    « Excellent lodging place »

    Very decently priced , right by the riverfront as the name goes . The breakfast is superb. Staff are very friendly and room service is excellent. Rooms and bathrooms very clean and maintained very well. Hotel is close to the main business areas so very convenient. Overall a superb place to stay in Marinette.

    « I can't breath!! »

    Windows don't open. Fan is not fresh air, did not cool room. October and i had to put AC on, which was loud and again not fresh air. Area around window is rotting and also stunk.! I probably will try a different hotel next time i am in Marinette.

    « Good regular stay »

    Always my preferred stay in Marinette. Staff is friendly and courteous (special plug for Bonnie). Room clean, location good. They are very helpful to me and my team while working nearby at the shipyard.

    « Decent place - especially when there's a Packers Game and you can't get anywhere Green Bay »

    Boxy appearance. Wonder if it was originally some sort of government bldg. Nice location on the riverfront. Handy to walk on the pleasant river path and the WI Info center is across the street. Room was clean, nice river view. Nice indoor pool and Jacuzzi. Nice to have on-site restaurant and bar. Free breakfast was just okay. Can definitely recommend, especially for a one-nighter.

    « WI visit »

    room was average. outdated and a little dirty . rooms could need updated. Breakfast was very nice feature and the lady working in the breakfast area was very nice and very attentive to all guests. Bar/ dinign room was very nice with a nice selection of drinks/food

    « Thankful we only had to stay one night »

    Location is ok, but single beds are only queen-sized and not king. It's an older hotel with low bathroom sink. The worst part was the humidity - even with the A/C running cold all night, my birkenstocks were really gross to put on in the morning as the cork had soaked up the dampness.

    4
    « Very clean, nice hotel »

    I was pleasantly surprised at how nice this hotel was. The room was large, the bed was comfortable, and everything was very clean. The desk staff were friendly. Has an attached bar/restaurant and rate included free buffet breakfast. Nothing negative to say! I would recommend it and would stay here again.

    5
    « great stay »

    We stayed at this hotel on rewards night. It was excellent and would stay here again. This was toward the end of our vacation and this was the best hotel that we stayed in. Very enjoyable stay. Again I would stay again

    « Good hotel »

    Stayed at this hotel while on business. They said I booked a room with one bed, but I showed them my reservation for two beds. They ended up accommodating my reservation, but I was frustrated that they almost caused an inconvenient situation.

    « Road Trip from Ontario to Minneapolis »

    Excellent hotel! Full, yet quiet. It was clean, riverside setting, walking area with footbridge to Stephenson Island park, comfortable beds. Great value booked on the Internet - includes buffet breakfast with a pleasant helpful server. A best choice!

    « Stay in Wisconsin »

    This hotel was excellant. Clean rooms, helpful staff and a wonderful park just accross the street. Had a wonderful time. Although we did not use maid service much while we were there we did not have any trouble getting what we needed. Staff in the breakfast were excellant and the food was delicious.

    « Decent room and value »

    I called directly for a reservation earlier that day and they were able to find a suitable room for a better rate than listed online. Room was clean and comfortable, although bed felt a little damp from the humidity and the shower had fair pressure. The lounge was open when I arrived at 9 pm and guys hanging around in parking lot to smoke, which was somewhat uncomfortable...but it was well lit and I wasn't bothered. Good WiFi connection. Breakfast ok.

    « Great stay in Marinette »

    Fantastic hotel. Exceptionally clean, we had a great view of the river looking across into Michigan. The hotel was busy (full), but the staff worked hard to eliminate any inconveniences. The breakfast was served in the restaurant, and the food was well prepared and tasty. The Riverfront Inn ranks with the best Best Western Hotels we have stayed.

    « very good place »

    Good location along river walk area, clean. Nice bar and grille attached. Good breakfast with hot choices. Eggs etc. Riverview room has good view of water and parks. Walk to downtown area but not much, restaurants cafes, bars , close by.

    « Great staff, great night's sleep! »

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bed was so comfy, slept well, woke refreshed. Had a room on the top floor and the noise level was very low so we were comfortable and quiet. Really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again when traveling through Michigan and Wisconsin.

    « Average, but clean hotel »

    We had a nice stay at the Best Western Riverfront when we were in Marinette, WI recently for a family reunion. The rooms are very plain, very standard, but clean. Nice mini fridge in room which was convenient. The breakfast buffet was included in the price of the room and was decent. There is a workout room, which is small but serviceable and equipment was nice. Indoor pool and hot tub which were clean, but again, very standard. Location is nice as its easy access to everything in town and to Menominee, Michigan. The staff at the hotel were all very nice.

    5
    « Relaxing and convenient »

    Very nice property. Great location on the river. Really nice room, almost on par with a plus. Beds were so comfortable. Possibly the best breakfast we have had at a Best Western. The pool area was very nice and relaxing with a great mural on the wall. The staff were all very nice. Definitely will return next time.

    « nice hotel, Uncomfortable beds »

    The hotel its self was nice, most all of the people were friendly, but the beds in the room were very uncomfortable. Woke up everynight/morning with a sore stiff back. The food at the bar/resturant was good, the breakfast was average.

    5
    « Good hotel. »

    Staff is very kind and curious and assisted in everything i needed on any given questions i had. No complaints and only the utmost respect to the people working at this fine establishment. breakfast was always warm and full of options.

    « Needs quality control »

    Needs some quality control, bed squeaks when you sit down or move around and isn't comfortable, bedding is very low end. TV remote doesn't work, sink extremely slow draining. 3rd Best Western we've stayed at during this vacation- this one is the most disappointing and ironically it was the most expensive.

    5
    « Great Pool!! »

    I loved everything but the pool was the most biggest ever and my room was a very nice suite and we ate at the buffet in the morning and the food was awesome. Also the bar was very loud at night and i and my wife and kids couldnt sleep!!!

    « WONDERFUL »

    This is a great place that is right in the middle of this nice little town. The breakfast was not the typical breakfast, it was made to order, lots of food too. The pool and hot tub were big and nice. We will be back next time we come to visit

    « GreaT! »

    Wonderful location over looking the Menominee river. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Breakfast was a warm spread, compared to your average cold cereal an waffle maker. I would stay here again if I am ever in the area.

    « Just a one night get away »

    Just a trip with my grandson, the pool was very nice and the staff was great. I will stay again if I travel north. I see the fishing was outstanding just across the street but I did not fish. several store you can walk to for snacks

    « Another great stay at Best Western Riverfront Inn »

    A totally grand adventure in Marinette. Love the rooms. They include a frig and microwave along with the coffee maker and hair dryer. And for people that like to iron, they have that too. Service is excellent and staff is helpful.

    « Best Western in Marinette, WI »

    This hotel has a Great location on the Menominee River. The staff was attentive and fun and fun. I highly suggest it for a business stay. The food in the restaurant is very good and the staff in the bar are very friendly.

    « Poor Service diry room »

    The room was left dirty women's sanitary napkins left in room spoke to front desk two times they never did anything! At check out I told the women again and she laughed very poor service! The service in restaurant was very poor they would not come to our table to wait on us; we had a large group and we had to wait on our selves they did not even clean-up table after we were done with food and drinks had to clear our tables or selves there were 6 waitress just sitting back at the bar area glaring at us and when you wanted to order a beer the barmaid had all she could do to ask what you needed like you were bothering her when she was sitting because she was very pregnant and she even cheated someone on their change she was so rude! I would not return to this BW again!

    « Another wonderful weekend! »

    We come to this hotel 5 times a year and never have we had an issue. The rooms are large, comfortable and homey. The staff goes out of their way to make the stay awesome. They treat our group like royalty. You can not find a better place for the price and care you receive there!

    « In for funeral »

    I was sent to hospital due to fumes in the room. The hotel has not checked my status after the Fire Department transported me for chemical inhalation. My in laws did not get the room they wanted and where over charged after the fact. The room was dirty and the room was to hot.

    « Good experience »

    We stayed here as our son was having surgery in Oconto. Glenn was very accommodating. The dates we needed were uncertain and he was very kind while working with us on the reservations. They were booked solid and we were able to get on a waiting list for one of the nights, and when an opening came, he called us right away, to set our mind at ease. The hotel was a double bed and had everything we needed. The breakfast had a wide variety of both hot and cold protein and carbs buffet style so we were pleased. Check in and check out went well, nice staff.

    « Family Wedding Weekend »

    The check in was not so good. I had specifically requested adjoining rooms for my husband and I and his elderly sister because she is a bit apprehensive about staying in a hotel. I had made the reservations about a month before our arrival for three nights. The rooms were held for a family wedding in Marinette. We received our room keys and the rooms had clearly been assigned in advance and we did not have adjoining rooms. I repeated my request and was met with apathy and no consideration by the check in clerk. At least we were on the same floor only three rooms apart, but not a good situation. The room was clean and quiet. The bedding was comfortable and the bathroom clean. The breakfast was hot and good - though Saturday morning it was extremely busy and the one wait person could not keep the food full and the tables cleaned. The wifi was weak on the sixth floor. Overall, I would stay there again if we travel to Marinette.

    « Comforts of Home »

    We stay at this hotel 4 times a year and have never been disappointed. They treat you like family. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. They are also clean and well maintained. The food has a super Friday Fish Fry and the chicken is wonderful. The breakfast is hot and delicious. If I had a complaint at all, it would be the lack of variety on the breakfast menu. However, their scrambled eggs taste like eggs and are not rubbery, the sausage is cooked to perfection and their is an assortment of other foods. The location is nice...took a quick walk to MI and back at lunch break!

    « Good Hotel in Marinette »

    Sitting along the river in Marinette, this is located in a nice downtown location. Several good restaurants in the area. Of course, good access to the Lake, just a few miles across the river in Michigan.

    3
    « Good location »

    Room was average - nothing special. Breakfast was included, but it was the awful, buffet comprised of rolls, cereal (in hard to use containers), small yogurts, and hot plates (powdered eggs, and other unappetizing items). The serve had to serve coffee and water, and seemed to be annoyed when asked to provide refills.

    « Good job Sarah! »

    Sarah at the front desk was extremely helpful and professional in helping me book my room. After being on the road for 10 hours, I was having issues with the app on my phone, and she was able to help me book a room and acknowledged my member status with a gift. Thanks Sarah, You were the only one who did this on my entire trip! The food in the restaurant was also Very good!

    « A Fine Hotel »

    This hotel was a pleasant place to stay during our three week trip to the Midwest. There were many US Navy people staying here on a semi permanent basis, but this did not post any problem. There was plenty of safe parking in the adjacent lot, which was well lit. The check-in process was very pleasant with a clerk who explained all of the amenities to us. We were pleased that the hotel contained a casual restaurant, where we could get a meal after a long day on the road. The hotel is well located in the downtown area, making it easy to get to and to exit the city. The river was very attractive and we were able to see the eclipse of the room from our large window. Every staff member we encountered was pleasant and helpful.

    « Not your typical Best Western »

    This property is considerably larger than your average Best Western Hotel. We were on the sixth of seven floors in a large king room with a nice view of the river. The room was equipped with both a refrigerator, microwave,and coffee maker. The staff at the front desk was friendly and efficient at check in and several luggage carts were available for guests use. I did not use the pool, fitness, or business center but they were available for use. The internet signal and speed were acceptable. There is a restaurant and pub located on premise where one can have dinner and is the location of the free buffet breakfast. We ate dinner there, ordering Walleye, which was excellent and reasonably priced. The service was "so-so" to slow. I thought that the breakfast buffet was not the best selection offered as compared to the other Best Western properties in which we have stayed. There is ample parking both adjacent and across the street from the hotel. There is a nice park with items of historical interest across the street and a short walk from the hotel. One major complaint that I have with the property, and admittedly didn't and should have mentioned to them, is that they allow people to smoke immediately adjacent to the entrance way. As a reformed smoker of 25 years, I didn't appreciate having to walk through a cloud of smoke and odor of cigarettes to enter and exit the building. I don't blame the smokers because there were no signs directing them elsewhere.

    « Define Well-Appointed! »

    I was hopeful when I booked this hotel and saw that it had been renovated, as previous stays had proven to be disappointing. Unfortunately, this stay was no different. While it appeared to have an updated tv and bedding, I do not believe that they have put new mattresses in all of the rooms. It was not comfortable at all. The internet did not work once while I was in the room. I did ask the front desk staff if it could be looked at and when I followed up the next day, I could not get a firm answer on if the issue had been addressed. That was once I could locate a staff member. It was common to see the "Be back shortly" note. Needless to say I don't believe the staff would win any awards for their customer service. The exception is the staff in the dining room and bar....keep up the good work! It's unfortunate, as this hotel is in a great location with a nice view of the water. Unfortunately, the marketing of this property is misleading. There are a couple of hotels in the city that I will look to stay at on future trips.

    « Ok hotel, but wonder about credit card security. »

    The hotel itself was fine. Rooms were reasonably clean, nothing special. Staff in restaurant were great and we enjoyed the daily special of soup and a HUGE salad for $6. Morning breakfast staff was great too. The main problem was that the couple we were with used their credit card one and only time....to pay for this motel and the next morning started getting calls from their credit card company that someone was trying to use it to purchase stuff online. I have no clue what happened, but there is something fishy about that. Please be aware. I don't know if their computers were hacked or if someone was being naughty, but I would hope they would investigate. Other than that the hotel was just average and I would consider staying there again.

    « Could do with updating »

    Check in was friendly however they requested our vehicle details which wouldn't have been OK if we were able to park on the hotel premises, we ended up parking across the street .. at night .. in the rain. Foyer smelled musty and dare I say of cigarettes? Room was clean but dated. When we put the a/c on we had a definite smell of cigarettes come into the room. Furniture was somewhat mismatched. Bathroom was very small, if you were using the shower and had the mat on the floor the door wouldn't open, definitely not room for two people to get washed and brushed in the morning. Breakfast was with a voucher, it was pretty generic and coffee pots would have been nice, once again we could have done with more coffee. The hotel calls itself the riverrfront tho in actuality the river is across the road and a parking lot away.

    2
    « Old and dated, needs updates »

    This hotel is a throwback to the 1970s. The decor is dark, dingy, and dated, and the lighting in the rooms is terrible. The climate control in the rooms is the old style, turn the temperature knob type and the fan is very loud. The breakfast is marginal, and if you arrive after 8 am, some items will have run out and you'll have few choices. I realize this is a small-town hotel, but by Best Western standards this place is far below average.
