    « Perfect stay! »

    Wonderful hotel, staff, and service. Wouldn't stay anywhere else when in the area! The food was great and the bartender/server had great suggestions. We had the garlic parmesean pizza and it was heavenly. The room was well appointed and immaculate.

    « Great place »

    Friendly staff, clean place, nice breakfast. Went for a night, swimming pool was big and kids loved both big side and kids pool with slide. We would definitely stay again when we can. They have a pancake machine, kids thought it was cool...they are skinny but kids enjoyed them with syrup and whipped cream.

    « Great experience for the entire family »

    This was a very nice hotel in little old Sparta, WI. The pool area was especially nice. One larger (and deeper) pool with a slide into the 5 foot deep end. Another smaller pool for the littler ones with another small slide. Also a hot tub with very hot water as well as a sauna. The family of 4 enjoyed this very much. I wish for more breakfast options myself but we all managed to find enough to eat and were satisfied. Overall very clean and the beds were quite comfortable. We would recommend this hotel for sure!

    « Best Western Sparta was Super! »

    I stayed here while on a trip to LaCrosse. I had called a day in advance and the lady that I talked to was very helpful. She was there when I arrived and advised me on other places to get fuel and eat if I chose to. There is a convenience store and restaurant next door but I chose to dine in-house. My room was very nice, clean and comfortable. The location is a bit baron but I liked that as it seemed a bit more serene and rustic. The bar/lounge was a nice perk. The food is pretty much bar food but what I had was tasty. I enjoyed a sandwich along with a Wisconsin beer. They could use a little more variety on tap but that is fairly minor. Breakfast was typical, the lady taking care of breakfast didn't seem like that happiest camper (compared to the rest of the staff), but overall it was a good stay and I would surely stay there again.

    We stayed here for a week-end of biking the Rails to Trails near by. The biking was great as well as this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and well taken are of. We would stay here again if returning to bike the trails. The town of Sparta is a nice small town. Well taken care of and very friendly.

    « Good Stay, But Mixed Service »

    We had mixed feelings on our stay. Brenda did a great job at the front desk and was very friendly and helpful. The desk staff was also friendly upon checkout. One of the maids was extremely friendly. She held open the elevator for us and initiated a nice conversation during the ride down. Teresa, in the breakfast room, was rude and unfriendly. She was not welcoming in the dining area nor did she greet any of the patrons. Patrons would speak to her and she would briefly respond when spoken to first. The breakfast ends at 9:00 during the weekdays and 9:30 on the weekend. This is extremely early. We arrived at 8:45 on the first day. We thought this would be enough time to enjoy ourselves and eat just as it would be if we arrived 15 minutes early in another hotel. When we arrived, some of the hot items were already empty and Teresa did not refill those items. She locked the door right at 9:00. I understand that breakfast ends at 9:00, but again, this is early for hotel breakfast stop time and we and others felt that it was rude to lock the door. The next day we arrived 35 minutes early. We said hello to Teresa and asked if we could sit in the backroom. She responded politely. Teresa refilled the omelets and pancake batter. Again, she kept to herself and did not greet anyone unless they spoke to her first. Teresa was cleaning up the food items right at 9:30. A family walked in just prior to her locking the door. They saw that there wasn't much food left and that what was there was being taken away. The family who also had small children, questioned Teresa. Teresa responded by saying, "It is not my fault that you were late, you should not have walked in late. We close at 9:30." At that point the family asked for her name and she responded, "Teresa". We were walking out to leave and were actually locked in the breakfast area! The behavior was inappropriate and I would hate for that to spoil someone's impression of an otherwise delightful staff and hotel. We enjoyed the hot pancakes which was much faster than the waffles and a unique item that we've never seen before. Ask for a remodeled room. The room was very clean as was the hotel as a whole. The bed was very comfortable. The pool water was ok and we enjoyed the larger sized hot tub and sauna. The bathroom shower was dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned for awhile. If I were rating my breakfast experience I would have given a 1 star. However, the hotel shined in enough areas that I gave it a 4 star rating. A 3 star wouldn't be accurate as this Best Western Plus is much better than an average hotel.

    « Very pleasant stay! »

    We were in sparta to see friends and booked a room here. Checking in was fast, professional and staff very amicable. Our king room was very spacious with a chair and footstool, bed comfortable. Bathroom was quite adequate. Breakfast was pretty decent, too. Scrambled eggs, sausages, ham slices, hash, potatoes and biscuits and gravy. They also has Belgium waffles and a pancake machine that automatically made hotcakes that were delivered to your plate. Not to mention the juice, coffee, fruit, breads, etc. One of the better hotel breakfasts I have seen. Definitely recommend this place. Only reason I gave it 4 stars, there were Japanese beetles in the room (4) that we killed. When we opened window, there were a few more.

    Great rate, friendly staff. Clean & comfortable. Many selections on the free breakfast including an automatic pancake maker & make your own waffle station Extra pool for those travellng with young children. Main pool also had a slide & the hot tub was not huge but worked for us. We were happy that the restaurant/bar was on the premises. Would definitely recommend this Lodge.

    We booked our stay months ago in preparation for Cranberry Fest which is 30(ish) minutes away from the hotel. We were surprised to see the hotel looked nothing like the photos. Our room was up-to-date and beautiful! The staff was fabulous and extremely helpful. We ate at the restaurant inside - if you love Bloody Mary's they are fabulous here! The pool area was perfect for adults and children and also has a sauna. The free breakfast was great - they had waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausage, ham and pastries. They also have free wifi. We would, without a doubt, stay here again!

    « A Quick Stay »

    Clean facility. Gracious & helpful staff. Very comfortable bed. Hot & strong-pressure shower (although I prefer a lower spout) Excellent breakfast buffet included. The coffee TASTED like coffee, as in NOT watered down! We did not take advantage of pool & hot tub, but they looked very inviting. The receptionist offered, as well, that we might take our bikes into our rooms. Gracious staff, 'drawing' on local maps--coming & going! I just wish it was a bit less expensive for such a short stay.

    « great hotel with a very nice pool area and restaurant »

    We enjoyed our stay. The hotel was clear and quiet. The pool area was one of the nicer and bigger ones we've been too. We did eat at their restaurant and we all enjoyed our food. We went early on Sunday and it wasn't busy at first but it did get busier. The server kept up even though she was by herself. We would stay here again it was a very nice hotel.

    « Can't go wrong here »

    I have stayed at this hotel multiple times and have never had a bad experience yet. The convenience of having a bar and restaurant on the premises is wonderful. The breakfast was hot and delicious, the dinner in the restaurant was perfect and the comfort of the bed was the topping on the cake. It is close to Fort McCoy which is where I was working so the location is perfect. Every stay here is a reminder of why I choose Best Western over any other hotel brand when I have the choice.

    « Very Nice Hotel in a small town »

    The Best Western is in the process of a remodel to become a BW Plus. We were in one of the older rooms and it wasn't really a plus level room. We toured a room being remodeled and it will be very nice. However, the beds were comfortable, the room and bathroom clean, and the breakfast adequate in a fairly large breakfast room. The hotel has a small restaurant if you don't want to travel for dinner and it has well prepared reasonable food and from our experience is one of the better restaurants in town. We enjoyed our stay. The indoor pool area looked like lots of fun for a family.

    « Clean & Convenient »

    Excellent location. A perfect example of why my husband and I are Best Western fans. We will use again if ever in the area. Top notch staff, clean rooms, convenient restaurant right on location with very decent hamburgers.

    Stayed here one night, overall was disappointed in the room. Outdated, extreme lack of electrical plug ins, mold in bathroom shower area. for good points, the staff did make a price adjustment that was more than fair and it appears they are in the process of updating the rooms.

    « Clean, comfortable & friendly environment. »

    Practically new, would stay again! Was only on property 10 hours and it was not full. Room was comfortable, had to turn on A/C but cooled off fine. King bed was great. Had microwave and refrig which come in handy. Close to highway. Could not send phone text messages via wifi, but laptop had no problem accessing internet, go figure, so sent with Facebook messenger instead no problem.

    My wife enjoyed a nice bike ride along the Elroy Sparta trail. We arrived totally wiped out. When we checked in the lady at the front desk mentioned they had a room with a whirlpool tub. We enjoy a nice dinner and a tall drink in the bar. Finished up a great day.

    « This Best Western gets better and better! »

    This has been our favorite place to stay in Sparta for years. The staff is friendly and the manager is outstanding. They are undergoing some upgrades and the results are beautiful - new furniture, carpeting, headboards, vanities, and more. Even the artwork on the walls is new and incorporates the local area. Recommended to anyone planning a trip to Sparta.

    « Great stop to unwind with the kids »

    The kids really loved the pool (3.5 and 1.5 years old). The hotel was very clean and our room was nice. The burgers from the bar/lounge on the main floor were really good too (that coming from someone who likes Nebraska beef :).) I would definitely stay here again.

    I drive a motor coach and brought soldiers from the Iowa National Guard in Perry, Iowa. We stayed Friday and Saturday night at the hotel after dropping the soldiers off at Fort McCoy for their shooting certification. The hotel was very clean, the room was clean, staff at the hotel were very helpful. They have a small restaurant called Brewster's. All five drivers ate their Friday and Saturday nights. Very reasonably priced. The property is very easy on and off from I90. Close to convenience store; very nice place to stay. Thumbs up!!

    Hotel is currently in the process of updating. We stayed in one of the rooms that had not been updated yet, but it was still very nice. Good bed; mini fridge and microwave; nice roomy bathroom with good shower and towels. Since the bike storage room was not available due to the remodeling, we were given a corner room and took the bikes to the room. It was HUGE! There was plenty of room for the bikes and still left a ton of floor space. We didn't use the pool area but peeked in - cute water slides for kids and a roomy hot tub. Breakfast provided decent choices. Definitely pleased with our stay.

Towels thicker type, continental breakfast was more then that, with fried potatoes, biscuits & gravy, scrambeled eggs, cheese omelets, waffles, and pancakes made fresh with automated pancake maker. Had all the other items you also find on a regular continental breakfast too. Swimming pool & hot-tub were beautiful with soothing water & air temperatures. A nice bar was stocked also. Parking was ample. Great week night price of $89!!

    I'd been dissatisfied with another chain motel in the area, and so I tried this one, which was clean, comfortable, with a great bar and grill so I didn't have to go back out into the heat for a meal, and an all-around great stay! The rooms are comfortable, and smoke-house sandwiches are great, and the staff is friendly and very helpful!

    « Excellent place to stay »

    We stayed here when we bike the Elroy Sparta bike trail with my husbands parents and his sister's family. We have 4 children ages 10-5. This hotel was perfect for our group! The continental breakfast was lacking and the hotel restaurant for supper wasn't great. I think you could pack better food than what they serve at the breakfast, and the supper atmosphere just wasn't what we were looking for. However, that isn't why you stay in a hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the pool area was excellent, and the staff was friendly and best of all efficient! The recommended some great places to eat (even though I had researched already!). Their recommendations were on par with what you will find on Trip Advisor. All in all, can't wait to stay again! We already have it booked for this July 2016!

    « Upgrading an already beautiful property »

    I have been staying here for work for the past 5 years now. This hotel has always stayed "Up to date" in my book. The rooms always clean, the front desk staff recognizes me whether I check in at 3pm or midnight. This last time I was able to stay in a newly renovated room (yes the first person to stay in a new room was a treat). The bar and grill (Brewski's) is not your typical hotel food. The food is amazing and I actually look forward to eating there. Once again the staff in the bar remember me by name when I visit. The pool area is quite large and has a couple smaller slides for kids. The hottub is pretty large as well. This hotel is right off the interstate and VERY quiet. It makes for a great night of sleep! I cannot say enough about how much I look forward to staying here.

We were there 30 minutes before it ended and the hot food was over cooked and since we were the only two there nothing was restocked. It all tasted good considering it is included.

    We grew weary from a long day and settled for Sparta vs LaCrosse and it turned out great.The price was reasonable,the staff very polite and proffesional and the GM is what GMs should be,proffesional but remembering they are in the hospitality bussiness.

    « This is the newest hotel in that town »

    First, I would like to say the owner of the attached restaurant was the nicest person there and also this place doesn't deserve the plus in it's title (I've been to regular Best Westerns and better experiences). Now the computer room was alright but it's a small room with 2 computers and an ATM (why they don't have it by the bar is a good question). They do have a fitness center but the elliptical is rusty and in need of repair for it clicks when you use it. Also when in the fitness room expect every member off staff to walk by and look at you while you are in the fitness center. The pool area was ok. They have a slide for the little ones. The hot tub has a leak in it and by 9:00pm the hot tub but be down like a foot of water and every morning/afternoon (of my 5 day stay) I was unable to sit in the hot tub because either they were filling it or it wasn't up to temp. If you went to the hot tub at night there were several people drinking at the hot tub and when the staff was alerted they did nothing to stop them (even though they have signs saying no alcohol in pool area). The breakfast offered is extensive but not if you are watching what you eat. The eggs were burned, the ham sat in a soda solution and the gravy for the biscuits and gravy lacked flavor....the best thing about their breakfast was the coffee with flavored creamer. Now for the room. The bathroom had very dirty baseboard and the floor was pretty gunky too (needs a good scrubbing). The headboards had smudges and streaks all over them. The wallpaper on the outer wall was peeling up. The handle to move the window curtains kept falling off. The closet was so small that the hangers had a hard time staying on the rod when you used the hangers. Lastly, when my family called to be connected to my room they were greeted with a rude, unfriendly attendant. This place was terrible and because of that I wish Leonidas were alive to kick this place in to the Spartan pit where it belongs.

    « Will NOT stay again!! »

    An unexpected, and fairly unpleasant situation landed my three children and I at the Best Western in Sparta. I mistakenly thought I had chosen the most family friendly hotel in town. The Front Desk Attendant who checked us in, and was working the following a.m., was a manager I believe. How someone with a complete lack of customer service skills landed such a position is beyond me!! She allowed us to check in early but her irritation was evident. I asked for a comb for my son later in the stay and was, once again, treated as an inconveniece. When I pay more than the value of a room on a Wednesday night in the off-season I certainly don't expect to be treated poorly. As the former Front Desk Manager of a comparable hotel, I was outraged! Being accommodating and making the guest comfortable should be number one. What's worse is that the woman who worked the desk Wed. night was equally rude, at one point questioning whether I was even a guest! The one bright spot of my stay was my housekeeper, whose name I never did get (whoever was assigned rm. 331 on 2/11). She was an absolute delight. When housekeeping staff is better at customer service than Front Desk staff there is a problem. We were still unable to return home Thursday and would have paid for a 2nd night if treated correctly. But, Super 8 will be getting our business tonight and hopefully we won't be treated as an inconvenience.

    We have family in Sparta and were so happy to have found the Best Western Plus Sparta Trail here. John at the front desk is always helpful and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and the pool area is so nice for families- a children's area, a whirlpool, an adult swim area and also a sauna. There are plenty of tables to sit and enjoy the nice brightly painted areas. The breakfast is just a step above the normal- they have added a pancake maker and have lots of hot choices and also fresh fruit. The seating area is also very nice and if it gets too crowded- they open the adjacent lounge seating. We enjoy coming to this hotel.

    This Best Western continues to be the only place we stay at when visiting Sparta! The manager, John, was personable and helpful. Our room, as always, was an excellent value. The breakfast selection continues to be broad and now includes a pancake maker, which is new (and fun) and a nice addition. We will definitely stay at this location the next time we are in the area.

    « Good stay for the Christmas holidays. »

    Nice, clean and comfortable. We stayed over a week and about the 3rd night had very noisy neighbors in next room, we requested to move them or us, Manager said they had checked out and then he blocked off rooms on both sides of us for the rest of our stay. That was awesome. Takes large dogs(70-80#) and only charges 20/a day for them, and tops out at $100 so if you have a long stay you don't incur more charges. Breakfast had a large selection of hot and cold items only downside was that the breakfast items were the same every day(scrambled eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy, potatoes, some type of canned ham, waffles and pancakes). It's not a big deal if you're only staying a couple of days, and there is a large selection of items, so you can alternate items. Overall this is a great place to stay and would gladly stay here again.

    Staff was friendly and very helpful. Pool area was clean and a great area for families and kids of all ages. Room was clean and comfortable. Thoroughly enjoyed that their were two televisions in the room. The bathroom was nice, clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet was very good! Large variety and good selection. The mattress on the bed was not very comfortable.

    Very nice hotel. Pool, jacuzzi and sauna are very nice. Hotel is quiet. Would definitely stay here again. Stayed at all the other hotels at one time or another in Sparta and this one was tops. A great value for the price.

    Outstanding staff and great location for a stay in the Ft. McCoy area. I have traveled to this area for the last 3 years and the Best Western Sparta Trail Lodge by far has the best for location and amenities.

    I do business with Fort McCoy and the Best Western Sparta Trail Lodge is not only located right near the gate, but it is a very nice property to stay at. It is so nice to have a hotel that's all inclusive. Pool, hot tub, fitness center, and an on site restaurant and lounge. Top that off with a bed you don't want to leave and a very quiet room and you have a great place to stay. I was there last weekend and will be next weekend as well. I don't even consider another hotel when I visit Sparta. Highly recommended!

    « Very nice stay with an onsite pub and restaurant »

    We stayed 2 nights during our Sparta-Elroy bike trip. Was a very convenient place to stay with comfortable and quiet rooms just a short distance outside the city. The onsite restaurant was a welcome convenience, the food was good and the waitstaff was outstanding. The only drawback on this particular visit was there must've been a kid convention in the area because the pool and hot tub was extremely noisy all the time - even when we tried to go in the early morning. We will stay there again but try and make our trip during the week.

    « Great place to stay if riding the Sparta-Elroy bike Trail. »

    This hotel is very close to the Sparta end of the Sparta-Elroy bike trail. The hotel was very clean. Breakfast is free but you need to get up early to enjoy. There is a bar on the premises that serves food so you cannot bring in your own food or beverage due to Wisconsin state laws. (Note: The bar does not open until 4:00, even on college or pro football days!) The room was spacious but we had a difficult time getting the room to cool down. The pool area was very nice and great if you have kids. The staff was adamant about no early check-in because needed to get the paper work/guest rooms organized first.

    Was looking for a good hotel in Sparta when we were looking at the fall colors in Wisconsin. This was very convenient being right off of the I system. Hotel was easy and fast to check in, clean, quiet and had a great breakfast. All of this when apparently the electricity was off in Sparta from 100 am to 500 pm because a squirrel ate some wires at the electrical station. It seemed like everything was shut down in Sparta because of the outage. Even when this was going on, they were helpful and friendly. I would use this hotel again. Beds were especially comfortable.

    This is a great hotel to stay at! The service was excellent with delicious breakfast. I loved the pool area! It had two water slides (one in a kiddy pool and the other in a regular size pool), and a hot tub. I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel.

    A very quiet, beautiful and extremely comfortable hotel. You do not want to get out of the bed. Great restaurant and lounge. Exceptional service in the lounge. I was there on business so a good nights sleep is very important to me. I never heard a sound while in my room. I will definitely visit again.

    Visiting family in the area so we decided to try this hotel. Loved it. Rooms were clean and quiet. Staff was friendly. Pool area needs a little routine maintenance but nothing major, everything in working order. Complimentary breakfast was honestly one of the best I have had in a hotel. Coffee was really good and they have an automatic pancake making machine, which if you are into that sort of thing, is pretty awesome. Hotel is a short drive to everything in town too.

    over priced rooms. Although great staff, they went out of their way to make the stay good. nice clean quiet rooms. Slow elevator was annoying. Breakfast was pleasant and selection was what was expected with the addition of all the toppings for the fresh pancakes and waffles. the breakfast area was kept stocked and clean.

    Hotel was very convenient to a wedding in the area. Showerheads are located too high, could not adjust. Staff was very friendly and helpful in giving directions. Beautiful scenery any time of the year.

    The Best Western Sparta Trail Lodge is an ideal place to stay when you don't want the hustle and bustle of LaCrosse, Wisconsin. The Sparta Trail Lodge location is perfect and the hotel is immaculate. It is an ideal place to stay! The breakfast selection is one of the best we have ever enjoyed at a Best Western Plus facility.
