    I love this hotel. It's our favorite and a close walk to the 2nd Street Bistro, our favorite Ashland eatery! The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the ambiance is fantastic, the view is the best, and I really like the breakfasts!

    « Expected more, but still good »

    Very neat hotel with a replicated historic feel, that just wasn't quite there though.. Still an OK hotel and service was great, just expected more from a property that has such class from the exterior. Bed was comfy and nice views of the lake!

    « Hotel Chequamegon Ashland, Wisconsin »

    If you want a friendly hotel where you are treated like family then the Hotel Chequamegon in Ashland, Wisconsin is for you. It is always clean & quiet with a breathtaking view of Lake Superior as you sit on their deck & enjoy eating & drinking. The Hotel Chequamegon is loaded with history from the 1800's from when the ore ships made Ashland a roaring town with about 80,000 people. Although Ashland has a population of a little over 8000 today it is still a great town where everyone is friendly.

    « Nice Cozy Stay »

    Quaint hotel, very well maintained, nicely located near downtown so you can take a decent walk down main street and then up the board walk along the Bay. You have the option of rooms overlooking Chequamegon Bay. Great staff and a nice breakfast on all accounts. Always hot coffee and cookies waiting for you 24 hours a day. Decent parking for a boat and trailer and outlets to plug a boat battery in. The restaurant is worth one night, for sure. Also within walking distance (2 blocks) is 2nd Street Bistro, which is definitely worth an evening meal too.

    « Outstanding Hotel, Except for the WiFi »

    Stayed one night in October. Overall, it's a great hotel. Excellent location, well-appointed rooms and lobby, excellent restaurant on site, friendly staff, good breakfast. We've stayed there before, but this was the first time since it became part of the Best Western chain. We had no WiFi access. Staff told us that Apple products don't work on the WiFi. Really? It's not like it's a "minor" brand. Have never had a problem like this before, either a hotel's WiFi works, or it doesn't. "Doesn't work with Apple?" What's with that? A nice young man from the front desk even came to our room and called tech support but still couldn't resolve the issue. Hey, Best Western... it's nearly 2017; Apple has been around a while. How about getting on board?

    « Outstanding once again. »

    This was our fourth trip to Hotel Chequamegon. Over the years, it had come into disrepair, but the new owner/operator has done an excellent job of returning this property to its past glory. Welcoming staff were indeed that, welcoming, and took the time to see if our room (226, recommend highly) was ready as we were early. It was ready and check-in was flawless. Everything clean and ready to go. First order of business was to have one of their loaded bloody marys. Still awesome. Had the fish fry Friday night and it was very good. The wait staff took good care of us. Small glitch with the Wi-Fi but was handled. The grounds and outside of this grand hotel have obviously been worked on. My marital unit enjoyed the morning breakfast. Checkout was flawless. If you have never been to Hotel Chequemegon, we recommend it.

    « Terrific »

    We stayed here two nights while touring the area and found it to be most pleasant and comfortable. We really enjoyed the old school design and style of the building, which was built in 1986 to look as if it was built in 1896. The hotel features a retro design and feel with many antique furniture pieces or replicas thereof, and successfully recreated the old time atmosphere when travelers first began coming to Ashland. Fine place to stay. In early October, when we were there, guests were mostly middle aged or older, and/or retirees, almost no kids, and that suited us fine. Stan at the desk, was helpful, cheerful and dependable despite his long hours.

    « Beautiful hotel! »

    My friends and I stayed at this hotel while in Ashland to run the Whistlestop half marathon. It was absolutely beautiful and the view of the lake was out of this world. We slept 5 people in a room so had a rollaway brought in which worked well although it made the room a little tight. We were fine with that because we weren't in the room much anyway. We went to the bar one evening for drinks and appetizers and had a great time. The continental breakfast served was very good and the selection of food was terrific. Everyone we met who worked at the hotel was extremely nice and friendly. If I had one negative, it would be that the cleaning crew didn't make our beds which I thought was extremely strange. It could be because of having the rollaway in between the two beds but still..... Other than that, it was a beautiful hotel and a great experience! Would definitely stay here again.

    Stayed with my family for 3 nights during a recent running event. The hotel staff were all very helpful and courteous. Overall an excellent place to stay especially if proximity to the downtown is a priority. Pros: Courteous and helpful hotel staff Clean and well maintained Central location within walking distance of downtown. Negatives: Restaurant atmosphere/service/ food is mediocre Single elevator also used by cleaning staff made access to the floors difficult.

    « The staff makes this place a 5 star property. »

    The front desk is your 1st feel for a hotel. As I was approaching they remotely opened the door and the 2 at the front desk both welcomed me. We stayed for 2 days and had a couple requests and they could not have been more helpful. They have a lovely balcony where you will get the best views of the sunset. The bar is nice size and the restaurant had very good food at a reasonable price. Drew the manager and Sarah P. were the nicest employees I have encountered at a hotel. In the lobby they have water, coffee and cookies throughout the day. The room was small but had a fridge and microwave which was a nice touch. We had a lake view room which I would recommend. The windows could use a cleaning but the view was still nice.

    « Very good location in Ashland »

    This hotel is a historic hotel which they have upgraded for the modern comforts and necessary electrical outlets. It is the most centrally located hotel for the central business district and the Mural Walk. It is almost midpoint on the waterfront path, so you can walk out the door and have a nice walk either way. All downtown restaurants are within a 10 minute walk. There is a reasonably good Chinese restaurant 5 minutes away. If the weather is good, there is a wonderful patio to sit on for drinks or reading. I was a bit frustrated with the manager on check-in (would not allow me to view rooms to see if I wanted to change to a lake view since it was not yet cleaned, and we had to wait for a room). There is always coffee and fresh cookies available in the lobby. I was disappointed with the breakfast, as there was no fresh fruit available at all. It did have eggs, bacon and the general assortments of cereal, oatmeal and yogurt, but no fruit.

    « Getaway to Ashland »

    We booked the Best Western the first Sunday and Monday in October. The hotel is in a wonderful location with a beautiful view of Lake Superior. We arrived at the hotel at 3:15pm and were told that our room was not ready because they were busy the previous night and were understaffed. He told us to come back in 25 minutes. Someone else came to the desk and actually checked on the room and told us it was ready. Went up to a room that was nicely serviced, had a bit too much carpet fragrance put on it, but was in nice shape. We went to look out the window at the view of Lake Superior. The windows are covered in bugs and really takes away from the beautiful view. We like using the stair whenever we can and avoid the elevators. It appears that they do not monitor the condition of these. Looks like stairs have not been vacuumed in weeks. Had a good first night in hotel. Left early the next morning to explore the northern Wisconsin shoreline. We put the card on the door to have the room serviced. After a full day of sightseeing, we were looking to come back to the room to unwind. We walked into the room and found the room in the same condition that we left it. No service was performed on the room what so ever. Went down to the front desk and talked to the same person who didn't know what to do. Fortunately, another hotel employee was just getting done with their day and overheard my concern. She stepped up and told the person at the desk that she would go up and service the room. 20 minutes later, she showed up to the room. We excused ourselves so the service can be performed. Overall, the potential of this hotel is ENORMOUS. Do have some issues with housekeeping, hotel can use some exterior cleaning.and staff could use some training on overcoming obstacles and working to exceed customer expectations.Little things like drink tickets for not having room ready by check in. Dinner for not having room serviced. The little things you do would make the customer forget about the issues. I would give this property another chance once they work out some of the issues.

    « No maid service »

    After a long day of touring in the area, we returned to find that no maid service had been provided in our room. Apparently we were supposed to pit out a hangtag asking for the level of service we wanted. I have never stayed in a hotel where a basic level was automatic. At the least i expect the wastebaskets emptied, paper supplies replenished, towels replaced if needed, and the beds remade. I under stand about towels not being automaticalky replaced to save washing, but none of the above are environmentally unfriendly. A auality hotel that this one claims to be should provide at least the badics In addition, our group meal was overcooked, and service was slow and rather sullen. They did not seem to be glad to see our group. This is a bautiful building in a great location. It is too bad their service is so lacking. I would not stay here again.

    « Beyond wonderful »

    Celebrating a fun couples weekend as newly engaged the staff on 10-1-16 was amazing when we arrived. The lady who checked us in gave us a free bottle of champaign for our room which we enjoyed over looking the lake. The service at the restaurant and bar downstairs was fantastic. Our waitress was kind and understanding. I had to send a fish dinner back because of taste preference and she took it off our bill and grab me another dinner right away. The decor was wonderful and my fiancé was loving all the historical references. The only point of negativity was one particular young man working the front desk that night. Talk about unprofessional! He didn't have any idea about local celebration that was happening 3 blocks down from the hotel or any local points of interest. He seemed much more interested in surfing the Internet than helping the guest. That evening we called down for an extra blankets and apparently interrupted this young man because he seemed incredibly put out to have bring a guest a blanket and said he'd bring it up as soon as he could. Being understanding that he very well be swamped I waited...... 3 hours! Having given him ample opportunity I called again happily to get a hold of a new staff member who brought up a blanket quickly. A 5 star stay with a one starless staff member. He seriously needs more training or to look for a less public service related job. Would happily return because of the rest of staff rocked!

    This is a very nice hotel right on Lake Superior. We stayed in room 204 Lake side. The view from the room was beautiful. The hall is very quiet even though the ice machine and sofa machine is almost across from the room. I was surprised we didn't hear it. The room was clean and housekeeping service was nice. Very friendly and professional staff. We stayed two nights. Photo 3 is the view from the room.

    This is a gorgeous hotel. If you enjoy the outdoors, you have so many opportunities to sit outside and take in Lake Superior. It is is walking distance of beautiful murals. Molly Coopers is a delicious place to eat after a long day of sightseeing. They strive to make your stay pleasurable. Cookies in the lobby are a definite plus.

    « A great stay in Ashland, Wisconsin at the Hotel Chequamegon. »

    I travelled to the Ashland, Wisconsin area with a group of friends for a Fall Color trip. We stayed at the Hotel Chequamegon on beautiful Lake Superior. The hotel is a historic recreation of the hotel that stood on the shore of the lake. The rooms are very nice and the beds comfortable. The hotel, while modern in it conveniences, is filled with antiques from the 1800's era. The breakfast included was very good and an evening dinner we had was very good as well. A great stay.

    « Horrible Customer Service-So Disappointed in staff »

    We were so excited to stay in this hotel due to reading the positive reviews, however we were greatly disappointed. The staff was so rude. We arrived at 2:30 and were told that our room was not ready yet and reminded that our rooms would be ready at 3:00. We went to have a cocktail at the bar in the basement to watch the packer game. We were informed that they do not get the packer game when the Vikings are playing. At 3:00 PM we went back to get out room key and were told that our room was not ready yet-no apologize.. We were told other rooms were ready but we were told that we would need to make additional payment. We finally got into our room at 4:30-again no apologizes at all-we were just told that they were also under the impression rooms should be ready by 3:00. After we went for dinner we went to the bar to have a cocktail at 8:45 and were reminded that they do close at 9:00-the bar tender had friends bring her pizza and was busy talking and eating pizza She was taking bites of her skittles and pizza in the middle of making our drinks! We were part of a large group of people. Many of these people have stayed at the location many times-and none of us will ever go back.

    Lots of history at this hotel up to date but kept the old motif style. Right on the waterfront of Lake Superior. Has dinner and breakfast. The food for dinner was salmon on a oak plank. Excellent dinner. Breakfast was waffles and pancakes with a choice of cereals and sweet rolls. View of the lake is spectacular!! Worth it

    « A hint of History »

    This hotel maintains the consistent Best Western quality.The room windows are historically small but if you can get the harbor view for a few extra dollars I would recommend it. The onsite restaurant is good and reasonably priced. Your room key includes a discount and a free drink at their restaurant. The free breakfast is a notch above average with waffles, omelettes and pancakes to go with usual fruit and cereal.

    « Mixed feelings. »

    We came through Ashland on a trip and stayed here due to the ratings. I have to say the building is beautiful. A classic old hotel right on the bay. The room was very nice but there was no coffee or cups for the coffee maker that was in a cabinet with no electric outlet. The phone was on a shelf across the room from the bed and desk. We paid extra for a room with the harbor view, but the windows were so covered with spiderwebs and dead bugs that we decided the view wasn't worth it. Oh, and cheep single ply toilet paper????? We went down to the restaurant/bar for dinner. The special was a fresh fish sandwich with fries for $6.99. I got that, my wife asked for slaw instead of fries. Hers was $12.95. Seems unreasonable to me but the waitress said that was the price with slaw. On the plus side, it's a lovely place and sitting on the deck with a beer was outstanding.

    « Good Atmosphere »

    This hotel built in 1980s replicates an old resort hotel in the area, with vintage touches in the lobby. The view of Lake Superior from the first floor deck is great. Nice for sunset photos. The rooms have high ceilings and long windows, which unfortunately, I couldn't get open to enjoy fresh air. The air conditioner in my room was a window unit set high into a wall and operated by a remote,. The vents were caked with dust, and I did a lot of hacking and coughing throughout my stay,.During the night, there was a slight, burning odor wafting from somewhere. I figured the heat may have come on for the first time and lint in vents caused the odor. The wi-fi did't work. The front desk didn't seem to care. The room was nice enough, with the usual amenities. The breakfast had gravy and hard biscuits in addition to the usual waffles and cereals and breads. The hotel has a restaurant downstairs, but only the bar with bar food was open. If it weren't for the location and atmosphere, I would rate it lower.

    « Beautiful views »

    Stayed at the Hotel Chequamegon while traveling through the north woods. It is a beautiful hotel right on the shore of Lake Superior. We had lake view rooms. While our rooms were clean and attractive, the hotel itself lacked good housekeeping. There was litter in the halls and the lobby bathroom had not been well attended to. There is a lovely patio off of the lobby area. However there was still breakfast dishes on the table at 6:00 pm. It had rained the night before and a soggy cigar was left on one of the wet chair cushions. Improved housekeeping would make a huge difference with this hotel.

    « Old bedding, soiled linens and dirty »

    Exterior appearance of this best western very deceiving. Beautiful exterior with worn and dirty rooms. Its clear there has been no replacement of worn and dated bedding and linens. Pillows were horrid. Be sure to bring your own since there are no good options to stay elsewhere. Shame on management for providing such poor quality rooms at a high nightly rate. Feeling very captured and will be sure to stay outside of Ashland on my next trip!

    « Overpriced »

    We paid over $220.00 per night for a single room with king sized bed. The room was clean but the bedding was worn and the bed/room smelled. The king sized bed had 4 tiny pillows, not even close to standard size. The windows opened but there were no screens in them. We never got our WiFi to work, the desk clerk spent 5 minutes trying and then told me my new smart phone is broken, even though it works now and worked in Italy a few months ago. I only rated four stars due to the convenience of an on sight restaurant and bar and the pleasant view from the deck. The room itself rates three stars considering the price.

    « Past its best »

    Really sad that this beautiful hotel with fantastic views had been neglected. We had to wait 15 minutes for someone to appear at reception so we could check in. He was pleasant enough but we were tired and just wanted to get to our room. We paid for a "queen" bed, but it was more like a 4'6" bed. Towels were small and a bit tired looking. Room had a microwave, but no plates or cutlery to eat what you heat! The restaurant food was lovely, but the service painfully slow, as they seem to have to serve and man the bar. Our server was however very pleasant and attentive. There is only 1 small lift, which often had to be shared with a porter and luggage.The button for the ground floor in the lift was broken overnight so you could only go to the lower ground floor. So when we came to check out we were left unable to get to the ground floor. Fortunately a member of reception staff came passed and ran up to the next flight to call the lift so it stopped at the ground floor. We were only here 1 night and I'm afraid it failed to impress.

    « Another Excellent Stay »

    We stayed in this hotel earlier this year. It was one of our waypoints on our return trip from Montreal to Vernon, BC. During our previous stay, we had a room overlooking the lake. This time we had a corner room on the 3rd floor overlooking the front as well as side. The room is well appointed and a propos to its old world charm. We once again enjoyed our one night stay and wished that we could have stayed longer. Despite the fact that the hotel was fully booked, we found our room to be very quiet. Service was excellent. The room was very clean and everything worked just fine. The beds were comfortable. The hotel is right beside a walking path that stretches along the shores of Lake Superior. Wifi worked very well. I highly recommended this hotel.

    « Grand Old Hotel »

    We were visiting a factory in Ashland and they put us into this hotel. This hotel is like many railroad hotels around the country. It has a great location right on the water with plenty of parking in front. The check in was friendly and the rooms were good sized and clean. Each room had a coffee maker and supplies to start the day. Breakfast is included but I have to say the two breakfast we had were nothing to boast about. There is a cafe in the hotel called Molly's which we were told was the best in town. Don't waste your time the food and service was poor. We had problems with the wifi and it took them from four in the afternoon to nine at night for them to get it working. The service for the internet is not in the hotel as they use an outside provider. I have to say that the people were friendly and the hotel had a nice feel to it. If I end up in Ashland again I would stay with them again.

    « Hotel Chequamegon, Ashland, WI »

    Overall a nice hotel. Price of rooms is based on location of the property not the service, amenities or furnishings. Rooms that face the lake probably have a great view but they cost more also. There's not much else to choose from in Ashland either. This was probably the crown jewel property of the area at one time.

    « Great location with nice amenities and old world charm »

    We had a lovely stay at the hotel! Sitting on the top deck at sunset or watching the bay during the day was a highlight. Walking distance to many shops. Free shuttle to Big Top Chatauqua. The place is steeped in history even though it is not an old hotel. The décor is old world with lots of old photos and explanations of the history of the original hotel and the area. The breakfast was great. Wonderful waffles and the automatic pancake machine was a nice touch too. Water and cookies in the lobby all day. Only two issues kept it from being 5 star... the hot tub was out of order for most of our stay, and the shower walls were not cleaned very well.

    « Terrible Check in Experience »

    We had stayed at this hotel around 10 years ago and were happy with it. It is a beautiful facility, well maintained and full of history. The long balcony overlooks a marina on Lake Superior as well as a long walking/biking trail. We ate our dinners in the bar since the dining room was not open. The service was good and the food average. The breakfast area on the entry floor was not bad. It had a selection of foods, though the eggs and sausage were not very warm. The rest of it was okay. I would have wished for a few more outlets but it did have a fridge and microwave. The shower was great. The WIFI connection was good. The air conditioner was noisy even on the lowest fan setting. I tried to open the windows but could not manage. It was hard to sleep with the AC rattling away. My biggest complaint was the service. We appeared after a long drive at 2:50 with the full understanding that check in was at 3:00. The woman at the desk said it would be 10 to 20 minutes so we settled into the lobby. She disappeared supposedly to see if our room was ready. She did not reappear. After 3:30, I began asking the man at the desk what was happening. His response was "I do not know where housekeeping is". I found this strange but sat down again. He did not seem very concerned. I asked again at 3:50 and when it was 4:07, I had lost my patience with his indifference and lack to action. If I had been in his place, I would have been a bit more accommodating and gracious. When I asked at 4:07, he asked me, "Do you want me to check on your room?" Of course I did since I had no intention of hanging out if the lobby for hours. The original woman had never reappeared. He took off and returned saying that our room was ready. When we got to our room, it was obvious that housekeeping was having a great time in the room they were working on. It also was obvious that the room had been ready for several minutes. The room was clean, though, which was good. Housekeeping provided a Personal Care request form of when we wanted service the next day and what we needed. I filled it out and put it on the door before I went to bed. The next day the form was still on our doorknob and the request was totally ignored that was wanted the cleaning in the morning. They did not show up until 4:00 or 4:30 to empty our garbage and refresh our coffee. I do not understand a hotel of this calibre having such indifferent and disorganized service. It was discouraging enough to make me seriously rethink ever staying at this hotel again. I would have given a rating of 5 if it had not been for the desk personnel attitudes and the poor the lack of organized service.

    We used this hotel for our wedding reception and we spent two nights here, the location is beautiful on lake Superior. The staff at the hotel give excellent customer care they were so helpful to us for our special day. We booked one of the hotels four rooms which offer a jacuzzi bath which was fantastic to relax in. The room gave excellent views over the the lake so a little tip ask for room 226. The area gives you five miles of walk ways and hiking and nice beaches to relax on. All in all this hotel is the best one in the area book here and your be pleased you made the right choice.Our wedding day at this hotel was the best and all our family, guests and us had a fantastic experience.

    The main reasons that I booked this particular hotel were that it looked clean, and that it had a hot tub, as I was celebrating a special occasion with my partner and wanted special amenities to relax. The hot tub was out of order, and the pool area was not very clean/ smelled unappealing, so we did not use it at all. I settled on a hot bath in our room-- but found when I went to take one that I had to clean someone else's pubic hairs from all around the tub. It was extremely gross. I kindly let the woman working the front desk know about my disappointment in both the state of our bathroom and that the hot tub wasn't working, and she brushed me off rudely. She said curtly that she'd let the cleaning person know, defensively said that I could've used the hot tub the night before when it was working (I was told I couldn't use it the night before), she didn't apologize at all for the state of our room, and looked away to continue her tasks. I'm a kind and patient person, but this really rubbed me the wrong way. This isn't as big of a deal, but it depleted the value of our stay as well-- we were told that hot breakfast would go until 10am, so when we came into the dining room at 9:30am, we expected that there would still be food. There were no eggs left, no english muffins, and no sausage-- the only things left were pastries, yogurt, and waffles from a machine. I asked if it would be possible for them to make more hot food and I was told no. If hot breakfast ends at 9:30, your hotel shouldn't advertise that it ends at 10am. The hotel is on the lake with nice views, the bar downstairs was pleasant, and the bed was comfortable. The cleanliness of the room and the hospitality/ customer service, however, are lacking.

    This may be the best option in the area, but a bit pricey. Excellent location on the water. Get a room facing the water. The bar/lounge in the hotel offers good food and drink and there are other options with walking distance of the hotel. About 30 minutes drive from Bayfield.

    We checked in early and staff was very helpful. We had no problem with parking as the hotel has adjacent parking lot of a decent size.The room was large but we choose one of the suites.The bathroom was small for the room size and could have been bigger. The bed was comfortable and sheets clean. We all slept well. The hotel has great views of the lake and we did enjoy it.

    This was our second stay at the Chaquamegon. The first was our honeymoon 21 yrs ago. The last time for a surprise birthday for my wife. Both times the stay was worthy of praise. The view of Lake Superior is awesome especially in the early morning and at sundown. I would rate this place at or near the top as far as being a unique place to spend a night or weekend with someone special.

    Always very clean, with friendly, helpful staff, central location, wonderful lakeside view. Love the decks and the northern parlor. Balanced mix of modern and old. Has an historic feel to it. Rooms have a microwave and refrigerator, and the suites have an extra sink. Internet worked perfectly, tv uses a clean remote, but wish the hotel offered HBO or something similar. Breakfast offered a lot of choices, and was ok.

    Participated in a wedding at this hotel. Everyone was very helpful and it was a beautiful setting. The crowd looked on from the decks as the couple was wed in the gazebo. Would highly recommend! The gardens were in excellent shape, the location is outstanding. There was a band concert going on in the shell next door and couldn't even hear it from a corner room right next to it! Quite good sound buffering!! Best hotel in Ashland.

    « Weekend get away »

    Came up for a weekend getaway stayed here for 2 nights. We had a king suite with a full kitchenette living room the bed and bathroom and whirlpool was separate from the living room and kitchen divided by a door. The whole suite had really high ceilings, very clean, really firm but super comfy bed, & the whirlpool in the room was huge. Our room was not facing the bay it was looking towards the parking lot so we had to keep our curtains closed at all time because there is a side walk right there unless we wanted people looking through our windows. But even with being right by the parking lot and road it was super quite barley any noise. Would definitely stay here again!

    « Lovely hotel, great feel, a little pricey »

    Beautiful looking hotel with great views if you're on the water side. Very nice amenities, though the prices for everything were a little high. Room value was ok...spent more than I think it was worth but did have a very enjoyable experience. There are restaurants on site but one was not open during our stay and the other kept us away by the prices. Location was central for our purposes - we were enjoying the roads of Wisconsin on our motorycles. Bike parking was good - we were able to park under the porte-cochere to keep our bikes covered for the night.

    « Nice location »

    My wife and I stayed here before and were not impressed. This visit to Ashland was for a class reunion and the destination was The Chequamegon. We thought it would be convenient to stay here despite our previous experience. We stayed here three nights. Of course there was still only one business chair to sit on so one of us had to sit / lay on the bed. One of my friends had a chair in his room so maybe you have to upgrade to a more expensive room to get two chairs. On the third day or room had minimal service. The towels etc. were replenished but the cosmetics, plastic glasses and coffee were not replenished. Also the beds were not made and it didn't appear that the room was cleaned. Despite the poor service the maid remembered to take the gratuity left on the bed. In the morning it would have been nice to sit on one of the two decks but all of the chairs had water on them. The one positive thing to mention was the well prepared food for our reunion banquet / buffet.

    « Average Hotel with Great Views »

    Hotel is very average at best. Not worth the overpriced cost. You are paying for the views from the hotel and not the hotel itself. Arrived around 9:30pm and there was no parking available. Was told because the restaurant and bar were still open there was no parking. Parked across street at Walgreens until space was available. Hotel was not worth the price paid.

    First trip to Ashland on a collage visit to Northland. It was important for us to get a feel for the town, and the Best Western gave us this access. Room was clean and spacious, and the reception areas were charming. Certainly the view of Lake Superior from the restaurant was a plus. The hotel was built in the 1980s and the hallways seemed a bit claustrophobic. Positive experience, but I would like to try some other hotels in town if my son decides to attend Northland.

    My wife and I just stayed there this past weekend. The view out our lake view room was fantastic. I could watch the sunset right from our bed. Only had a few cocktails at Molly Coopers downstairs but the deck outside was awesome and service fast and friendly.. Lobby is an easy walk from the small parking lot right out front. Though built in 1986, has the look of the grand old hotels of the past, lots of beautiful woodwork throughout. Great fireplace sitting area just off the lobby.. Will definitely stay here again on my next trip to the area.

    It was a refreshing stopover. The Victorian ambience lends itself to reminiscing about another era. Lake Superior dominated the scene and nearby walking paths were pleasant and full of wildlife.The serving staff at Molly's pub were accommodating to guest' request. Hot tub and pool very relaxing -rooms clean-had hoped for a lake view, but enjoyed the deck view.

    Hmm, everything about this place is rustic. It has a lot of history and don't forget to read all the history and note blurbs they have across the facility. This is probably the most definite way to look over the lake as the sun is setting. The beach is probably a mile walk from the place. There is a walgreens right opposite for all the missed out things. Contintental breakfast was not bad, but not something that you would want to, if you are in this part of WI. Two miles aways are some good local shops that you can get better food. Staff were friendly and good house keeping.

    We spend a very enjoyable two nights at this hotel in early July. Our lakeside king room was very spacious with an outstanding view of the lake, marina, sunset.

    Dusty, toilet ran, broken switch in the bathroom, lightbulb out. Location isn't great. The location on the bay is next to some industrial work with a sign to keep out of the water due to toxic contaminants. The staff was friendly, but the rooms are a bit cramped and not cleaned or maintained up to the standards you would expect from a chain hotel. There are better options down the road.

    This is a very unique hotel. We enjoyed the antique furniture and pictures around the lobby and sitting rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was nice and temp. was easily adjusted as needed. Breakfast was convenient and was open until 10:00 am. We were here while there was a band performing in the amphitheater next door. When we returned from our outing in the evening, there were no parking places for hotel guests left. The music folks took them all! We parked in the Walgreens across the street and moved our car back over around 10:00 pm. This was the only negative during our stay.

    « Best Western Except for Breakfast »

    We stayed here a week with family. The Hotel is located in the heart of Ashland, Wisconsin. The hotel is a majestic white building that sets on a harbor of Lake Superior. The hotel lobby is decorated in Victorian style with several interesting antiques. In front of the hotel is one of several murals on one of the buildings. A balcony and a deck provide wonderful views of the sunsets over Lake Superior. There is even a gazebo that is in back of the hotel with many steps that lead closer to the water. The rooms were small, clean, well-decorated, and our room had a wonderful view of the harbor. This is not a new hotel and the furnishings lend itself to the Victorian era. There is a restaurant on the premises with a good selection of menu items that are reasonably priced. There is a public beach on Lake Superior just a 15 minute drive away on the road in front of the hotel. The front desk hotel staff were very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. They provided a wealth of information regarding the town of Ashland. That provided information regarding the sites around Lake Superior. There are plenty of activities in the area such as hiking, biking, and other historical sites to see. The hotel front desk staff will be happy to help you learn as much about the small town and the beautiful surrounding Apostle Islands. In order to take full advantage of the beautiful views of Lake Superior, a room with a view is recommended. The only drawback to the stay at the hotel was the marginal free breakfast that was available each morning until 10:00 AM. The selection of items were limited and the staff were lackadaisical and unattentive. This was disappointing as the hotel front staff were very kind and helpful. However, there are several little cafes near the hotel and in the area that serve a reasonable and delicious breakfast. If staying here more than a couple of days, I would recommend eating somewhere else.

    Stayed here for 2 nights on a work related trip. The hotel is situated on the shore of Lake Superior, with beautiful views of the lake and the nearby marina. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff, for the most part, very friendly. The complimentary breakfast is standard but the coffee was really bad! It's more like coffee colored water. I pointed this out to the serving staff there but they were very non-responsive, or just answered in a very abrupt manner. This is not a deal breaker to stay here.....just make sure to buy your coffee at one of the coffee houses or cafes close by! The wifi in the rooms is great for working travelers.

    The Hotel Chequamegon is a hotel that has a lot of character, which you can see from the pictures. To me, it was worth upgrading to the water view room, as the sunsets were spectacular right out the window overlooking the harbor. The rooms were clean (with the exception of the windows needing a good cleaning from the outside). Breakfast was very good, with the exception of the "make your own pancake" machine - the pancakes were tough and bland. They also have a waffle maker and hot dishes - the first day was omelets and sausages, and the next day was biscuits and sausage gravy. The air conditioner was clean and worked well - keeping a steady fan without the clunking that often wakes me up in a hotel room. Housekeeping was excellent. The restaurant on the lower level was good, but a little overpriced for the quality of food. But those views... there's a patio overlooking the water, check it out at sunset. The property is right on a walking/biking path in the center of Ashland. I am very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again.

    We stayed only one night at this hotel. The night we arrived, we had dinner at the restaurant. The food was average but the service was terrible. When I complained to the front desk staff, their response was "oh yeah I know, they are understaffed again".

    Qualify your people on how to clean a room. My room had an article of clothing on the floor and an un-made bed on the second day of my stay. This was not mine and when I confronted the front desk (GM) he made it seem like a very trivial issue. He came to my room and picked up what I thought was underwear, and found it was a pair of kids clothes and said it was probably in the sheets. Did I sleep in a bed that was not changed after the previous guest? Is this the way Best Western conducts business? Should I be treated like my concerns are trivial?

Centrally located in Ashland, walking distance to in town attractions/restaurants. My only suggestion for improvement is the breakfast. They have range of milk, juices but limited hot meal options. Eggs are every other day from what I gathered and are dry (folded over mini omelettes). Otherwise a mediocre biscuit and gravy option is offered with hard boiled eggs as only egg option those days. Basic toast options. They did have a pancake maker which was interesting but resulting pancakes were mediocre in taste/texture. However, overall for a free breakfast, not bad.

I am not sure when the last time the unit with the mold was assigned as dust webs were also noted above the bed.

    We stayed at this property at the end of January in order to attend the funeral of a loved one. As a hotel manager myself I have high standards and expectations of any property that I stay at and the Hotel Chequamegon met and exceeded those expectations by providing a comfortable room, excellent service, and an overall great experience. Every employee (Housekeeping, Maintenance, Front Desk, and Bar staff) I encountered on any of the shifts took the time to speak with me, even if it was just a friendly hello. This made me feel very welcome in a place far from home with my wife and daughters. This left enough of an impression on me that I took the level of service I received here and I applied it to my own staff when I got home. The management staff was wonderful as well and I wanted to thank them again for being able to assist us in such a trying time.

    Very nice hotel with friendly staff. Comfortable beds and beautiful view of the lake. Nice pool area. The food is good and the drinks are too. Very convenient location for me close to work, pharmacy, stores, and very nice coffee shops.

    « Charming place »

    A rennovated railroad hotel that's really charming. The lake facing views are great, as you are up high on the bluff. There is a breakfast buffet on the first floor, and a restaurant bar on the lower level open for lunch, dinner, and drinks.

    « Nice Retreat after Book Across the Bay »

    We picked this hotel because we participated in the Book Across the Bay race, and it was close to the start of the race. I'm not sure of the history associated with this hotel, It looks like an older hotel, but it could have just been built recently to look that way. In any event the hotel does have a lot of the historic lodge feel about it. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. After we checked in we were told that there was one elevator in the lobby. This elevator is slow and doesn't serve the hotel at full capacity very well. My advice is to request a room on the first floor or use the stairs as we did. The rooms a well appointed with Microwave, Refrigerator and our room had a lake/bay view. The bed was comfortable and the pillows were a little too overstuffed and firm for our liking, but better than other hotels. They had a sink in and out of the bathroom which was nice for getting ready in the morning. Overall this is a very nice hotel and room to stay in. Our only issues (they were very minimal but worth noting) were as follows: The second key card they made us didn't work (easily remedied). The water pressure in the sink outside the bathroom was very low and the sink leaked water from the control handle on top. The hangers in the armoure were the type that were in two pieces so you wouldn't want to steel the hanger, but they fell off the second piece that was on the rod very easily. We picked up our clothes several time due to this. There was a small piece of plaster missing on one of the wall that exposed a nail head. There was a small crack in the ceiling plaster. There was a lack of outlets which they handled by installing on of the plugins that make a normal outlet have six sockets instead of 2. There was only one light switch to turn off the two lights on either side of the bed. The above issues however do not overcome the overall appeal of this hotel. It is comfortable, quiet and clean. A very nice place to stay on a very cold evening in February. It was wonderful to return to this room after our 6.1 mile excursion on the ice in the Book Across the Bay race. Breakfast the next morning was bustling but not crowed and the selection was good, We really enjoyed the eggs, english muffin, yogurt and skim milk that we had. We were kind of confused at checkout. We received a receipt from the hotel but had prepaid our hotel through Hotwire. They gave us Hotwire's receipt for our stay. This is the first time in a long time that we have received a receipt when we prepaid. I understand that it's probably pretty routine to provide a receipt to everyone, but they may avoid confusion if they don't provide receipts to prepaid guests. In conclusion, this is a very nice hotel and we would be happy to stay here again if the need/want arises.

    « Disappointed Hotel Experience »

    Poorly trained, unprofessional employees in appearance & behavior. Mediocre rooms, tiny outdated baths, too much over-sized furniture for small lodging rooms. Poorly decorated dining environs, unplowed parking, dirty entry. Conference rooms cluttered with stacked chairs & unkempt. Disappointing experience...won't return!

    Great place to hole up! Clean and charming. Restaurant and lounge make the stay comfortable without having to travel outside anywhere. Fitness center was a bonus too. Cookies on arrival are a nice touch to. Staff shows they care.

    « Lovely hotel, lovely staff, lovely stay »

    One of my all time favorite Wisconsin hotels, harking back to another era but with modern amenities. The library room located behind the "check in" desk with a multi-directional view of Lake Superior is one of the interior highlights. Great place to relax after a day of snowshoeing or hiking. Love the historic room numbers.

    « Once again, an amazing stay at the beautiful Hotel Chequamegon. »

    The staff continue to impress, and the property is one of our favorites. Its strong sense of history and lovely interior (especially the library behind the check in desk) make it a fun place to relax after a full day in the Lake Superior region.

    Hotel has management problems, wonderful building and location, lacking management of heat and amenities service. perhaps a spring, summer or fall would be better? We have stayed at this hotel before and the view was wonderful. not sure if hotel has changed hands? So sorry for the loss of wonderful Vintage Vacation stop.

    « Scalding Water Issue »

    I stayed in this hotel while visiting relatives in the area. I chose this hotel because a prior stay was enjoyable and the location was ideal. I had forgotten that the beds took some getting used to - very firm! The continental breakfast was fantastic with a lot of variety and the attendant kept the dining area super clean. During this stay, the hotel was having issues with their water. It was scalding hot with no cold water in sight. This went on for two nights and on the second night, I had to wash in stages as standing under the shower head would have caused burns. Some guests had to shower in different rooms as this seemed to be a location issue. The other issue was that our key cards were inactivated before we checked out at 11:00 AM. We had to find a housekeeper to let us back into the room so that we could grab the rest of our things. I would have appreciated being offered a discount or refund for the inconvenience of the hot water issue. Not being able to enjoy showering each evening was a big disappointment.

    Excellent hotel! Friendly workers, very clean, quiet, right on Lake Superior. If you're looking for a hotel from back in time this is your hotel. It's like you step back in time with all of the present day amenities.

    My husband and I stayed here because he was on business. We thought we were going to stay in bayfield but decided to come back here. Very clean and quite. Love the view of the water. Close to the brewery. Close walk to downtown and rite across the street from a walgreens. Breakfast was ok.

    « Super cute! »

    This is by far the best looking hotel in Ashland. The only down size is that the beds are not as comfortable as one would hope. We joked that it was like sleeping on the box spring when we first laid down. We were also a little disappointed that we paid for a queen suit that promised better views from our window, hoping to wake up to Lake Superior, but we were greeted with the parking lot instead.

    Although the hotel was priced a little higher than other hotels in the area, it was well worth it. Clean and comfortable. Quaint. Great variety on breakfast bar. Excellent bar/restaurant. Great for families. Nice pool.

    « Nice location »

    Beautiful spot right on Lake Superior. Hotel is very unique in that it has a 'Grand Hotelesque' look and old feel with antiques scattered throughout the hotel. I read many of the reviews before picking this hotel and asked for a room away from the ice machine and elevator and had a nice lake view on the 2nd floor. By the time I got to the hotel, I was starving and decided to eat at the restaurant which was casual but very good. I would have loved to have sat outside but that wasn't an option. Beds and bedding are comfortable. Great wall a/c and heater unit that has a fan that will stay on all night which I loved. Furnishings are old but adequate. The desk does have a lamp with plug-ins readily available which is nice as I'm traveling for business. Breakfast was hot and cold and a good variety with real dishes and silverware. There isn't an attention to detail .... especially in the cleaning. I'm not sure when they've wiped down the lighting in my room or cleaned some of the bugs up in the corner of the bathroom. I used the stairs on the west side of the building and they gave me the creeps.....not very clean. Overall, the hotel is very average and at $115 per night, I would expect more. Oh....and don't expect the staff to say hello to you....you have to make the initial connection. Very surprised by that.

    « Unique Hotel »

    I was in the area on business and was recommended this hotel. It was great. This is the most unique Best Western I have ever encounter. The architecture was outstanding and the location is great. The hotel staff was great. They were very accommodating when I went to check out even with the yoyo talking on the cell phone at the counter instead of moving out of line. They were gracious with him and were able to get me checked out even thought he was clueless.

    « Don't let the exterior fool you! »

    This is a charming hotel - from the outside and in the lobby - but very bare bones inside. Not worth the extra money for a lakeside room (obstructed views) and the service is slow both at front desk and in restaurant. Not worth the exta $ from the other chain properties on the lake.

    « Awesome room and view some of the staff needs work. »

    Upon our arrival we were greeted and checked in by Stan. Super nice man. He was informative about where the bar, pool and other amenities were located. There is always coffee and cookies available by the front desk. We headed upstairs to our room. The room was a king suite with a jacuzzi very clean smelled great a little warm but easy fix, we turned the air on and heat off. The view from the room was awesome. The bed is a hit and miss seemed to be a little hard for my liking which made it difficult for me to sleep. The pillows were way to soft and my head seemed to sink in the middle leaving huge clumps of pillow on each sides of my head. The sheets were really nice and soft and smelled fresh.The tub took me almost 30 mins to get enough water in it for enjoy. But one perk is you will not run out of hot water. Mollys Coopers bar and grill my husband and I had a hard time rating. We arrived on all you can eat fish night. I ordered an awesome bloodymary loaded with cheese, pickled asparagus, mushrooms,olives, a pickle and pickled onions made by Travis the bartender. It was really great he was very attentive and very friendly. I decided to order the all you can eat fish which came with french fries and a salad. I went with cod which was perfectly cooked the first time. They gave me two pieces after they were finished I requested more and was given 1 piece which upon inspection was not cooked all the way. I waited 10 mins for that one piece and had to wait another for a fully cooked piece. By this time I was aggravated and did not want anymore seemed like a waste of time. We just took our one piece to go. While sitting at the bar we noticed somethings going on waitresses seemed not interested in there job. Theres one sitting to my left at the bar playing on her phone. Another coming from the dining room complaining how they do not wanna work in there. Our visit to the bar on Sunday was even more amusing. We have some new waitresses. The only waitress that seemed like she actually cared " Hailey" was the only one running back and forth gettiing drinks from the bartender. While some playing on there phones once again. Even saw one having champagne while shes supposed to be working. On a good note the chowder was the best I have ever tasted. The continental breakfast was really good cheese omelet, cereal, bagels, toast, fresh pancakes made, juices, fruit and so much more. Only Sunday morning wish there would have been some kind of warning that there was going to be a charter bus full of disrespectful teenagers spilling food everywhere. We ate upstairs due to that. Overall experience was great we enjoyed ourselves and would visit again. Great decor and huge decks makes for a home like stay.

    « Jacuzzi Room with Views of Lake Superior »

    We booked Hotel Chequamegon in Ashland, Wisconsin for a one night fall color getaway tour. The atmosphere is similar to the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Although this hotel was built in 1986, they did a good job of creating charm that makes it feel historic. Restaurant decks overlook Lake Superior. The King Room with a jacuzzi in the corner of the room was the perfect way to end a day hiking in the Wisconsin Northwest fall leaves. The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and romantic and had a beautiful view of Lake Superior. We began our morning with a walk along the Lake on the paved walkway right outside of the hotel. Complimentary breakfast was decent - standard hotel fare. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. We'll definitely return to the Hotel Chequamegon whenever we're in the area.

    We went on a spur of the moment trip to see the Fall colors. This Hotel was a deal through Hotels.com. The view of Lake Superior was fantastic. The room was clean and quiet. The bathroom was small but clean. The bed was comfortable. We were a little to close to the ice machine so that was noisy, we only noticed it in the morning. Check in was slow. We had a snack in the bar area and a cocktail. They were very nice and food was good.

    « disappointed overall - »

    We stayed here because of the hotel's location on the lake. The views of Lake Superior from the hotel and terraces are beautiful. We would not stay here again though because there are too many inconveniences especially for the price. The parking area is small and when we returned at 6:30 one evening we had to search the entire lot until we found the last available space. The coffee maker in the room is placed in an area that doesn't have an electrical outlet and we ended up placing it on the floor. The bathroom counter is quite small and the toilet paper stand has to be moved back and forth so it's within reach and then away from the shower and sink. We have stayed in many truly old hotels that are much better arranged for guests. The final blow was the breakfast that included old hard oranges for fruit and a pancake maker that made gummy pancakes.

    Chlorine pool slippery floor pool area. King rooms are small unless you go with a suite. Charming character Hotel. Bar staff seemed unkempt with tattoo down her arm. Not too sure about the layout of the bar/lounge/restaurant. There is an elevator, so it was easy to get from one floor to the other. Breakfast area was very nice and a good variety of warm and cold food.

    For the price, not impressed. Dripping faucets kept me awake and the staff was not too friendly. The convenience of the location was great. The chowder in the restaurant was good. I had to call to get our bill adjusted after we got home..

    « Beautiful location-Always room to improve! »

    We stayed at the Hotel Chequamegon for one night while on a business trip. After a nice long ride we were happy to arrive, and the location on the water was beautiful. We were more than a little surprised to go to the front desk and to be greeted by a middle aged man who gruffly said "ID and credit card". No greeting, no welcome, no please or thank you, no smile, nothing except "ID and credit card". We obliged and were given keys to our room, and a snarky comment about a $500 charge if we smoked in the room (we don't smoke, but whatever). Our room was very oddly laid out---the tall cabinet with microwave and refrigerator had been placed directly in front of one of the windows, and the TV was on top of the dresser and completely blocked the mirror. The bathroom had been refurbished with a cheap, chipping paint job on the tub. The room was not as clean as I would have liked (dusty) and it had perhaps the roughest toilet paper and facial tissue I have ever encountered anywhere. My spouse said the continental breakfast was pretty average, so I opted for a local coffee shop and bakery in the morning. Overall, there are other options in the area, and I would probably try other spots in the future. I can handle average rooms, but don't need the "snark". A little greeting and a smile can go a long way!

    Stayed one night on our way through town. The rooms were big and clean with no issues. The convenient location helped us carry on our way in the morning and the continental breakfast served our needs before we left. Would stay again for sure.
