    « Customer Service was Awful »

    It is a nice enough motel, but there was absolutely no customer service. Our keys didn't work from the time we arrived. They didn't care. I had to go back three times and only one out of three keys worked. She didn't care and she didn't apologize. Then we were put right across the hall from the ice machine and the vending machines. So there were people in there at all hours of the night. Not a great experience at all. At least the shopping was great.

    « Best Hotel in Minocqua, WI »

    excellent very clean and updated hotel. Will Definitely stay there again. Pool and hot tub were clean, breakfast was very good with hot items on menu. Free Wifi, nice updated decor and atmosphere. Close to downtwon Minocqua and restaurants. In hotel lounge was nice. All staff friendly and very helpful.

    « Nice hotel »

    My husband and I, along with another couple, stayed here two nights. The women at the desk were very pleasant. Kathy in the breakfast area was very helpful. Nice and close for walking to the downtown area for a bit of shopping. We enjoy the bar on premises, as we come back after dinner out. We have our after dinner drinks there. John was our friendly bartender. I always take a drop cord, with a three outlet plug, so I can plug in my devices. I am hoping when they upgrade, they will add outlets at the bedside stands. See you next year!

    « Do not recommend the hot tub suite »

    This hotel is average to poor on the whole. Do not pay extra for the hot tub suite unless you want to bathe in brown sludge! The breakfast was not very good, the service was poor, the room was not very clean, and the pool did have a bathroom (meaning that if you are using the pool you have to go back to your room to use the bathroom). However, the location was very good and within walking distance to most things in Minocqua, the bed was comfortable, and there was a cute outdoor seating area around back.

    « Minocqua Highlight! »

    Great place, terrific location. Walk to restaurants, spas, bookshops and more. Can't go wrong. Staff is professional and caring. Breakfast was fresh and coffee was ready. Breakfast room was clean and orderly. Staff does a great job.

    « Older overpriced hotel »

    My husband and I stayed one night in the whirlpool "suite". It was overpriced for the value received. Very disappointing. The room was clean and adequate to stay for one night. However, it was old and small. The door, although shut, was not sealed and from both the inside and outside looked open with the light shining through. The bathroom was tiny with the shower almost on top of the toilet. The whirlpool is feet from the bed which is next to the window. Overall the room just needed a major renovation. We would not stay here again. To be fair, we did receive a free "drink" ticket which we did not use. We also did not use the pool or whirlpool.

    « Great night stay for business »

    Good location-right acress from the beach. I stayed for business but it is walking distance to restaurants and shops. Looks older from the outside but room was updated, comfortable bed and friendly helpful staff. I liked the large vanity outside the bathroom. Covered "fresh" TV remote appreciated. Good breakfast-I always appreciate a hot breakfast which includes scrambled eggs etc.

    « Adequate, nothing fancy »

    Positives - Really firm mattress. Password-protected wifi. Surprisingly quiet even though it is on a really busy street. Easy walking distance from Minocqua shops. Accommodating desk staff and friendly housekeeping staff. Neutrals - "On the lake" is a loose term - this inn sits on a busy street across from a city park which is on the lake. Breakfast is decent. Negatives - Room is pretty dated which doesn't matter for sleeping but lacks such things as sufficient outlets for charging multiple electronic devices. Toilet/shower area really tight and very dark. Overall an adequate place to stay.

    « Fine, reasonable place to stay »

    For the area and for the money this is a great place to stay. Centrally located in downtown Minoqua with lake views, it has ample parking, a fine indoor pool and spa and the rooms are perfectly acceptable. This is not New York or the Ritz Carlton. But for the Northwoods, you will be very satisfied,.

    « Great view of the back of the front awning »

    Clean room, okay bed. I had one of the rooms on the second floor behind the awning. So instead of a view of the lake, I could see maybe a foot of sky way at the top, otherwise it was a close up view of the back of the folksy front entry way.

    « A nice, average hotel »

    Stayed here on business for a night, and it's a very nice, average hotel. It's in a great location, right on the corner of the main strait and across from the public beach. The room was clean, decent size and the bed was comfortable. I don't think I would stay here if I was vacationing in the area, because it seems like there are a lot more "vacation rentals" available. The pool was subpar, and I didn't like how it was right next to the lobby. The staff wasn't overly friendly, but I wouldn't call them rude. I've had better continental breakfasts (but I've also had worse). Like I said, the Best Western was a perfectly average hotel. And there's nothing wrong with that.

    « All around Family Friendly Concord Inn »

    From the moment we arrived, staff was friendly. The hotel is clean and while we were there they were updating the carpet in the lobby area. You would never have known, quiet work and cleaned up all along. Great job! New carpet looked new as well. The pool and whirlpool were clean and great for young and old! Exercise or just burn off some energy before a good nights sleep! The kids could swim and play all night and we were right there and with others looking on from the bar. Nice pricing for rail and name brands, don't forget to pick up your 2 for 1 coupon for beverages daily! We will be back! Thanks!!

    « Great stay »

    Always a great stay at the Concord! Convenient to the lakefront, and downtown eating, shopping, & museums. Staff at Concord are pleasant and courteous. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is tasty & filling. Nice lounge area for cocktails or just relaxing.

    « Break-in Ride »

    This is recommended for the stay in this area as the facility is in a great location and easy walking distance to all of the tourist spots. Staff is very helpful. The Minocqua area is beautiful for riding and the main roads in kept up.

    « Great stay if no storms (on one side) »

    One night stay in this Minocqua property. Hotel is convenient to the downtown. We were able to check in early which was nice. Friendly staff at check in and the female staffing the lounge was also friendly. Room also includes a free breakfast and two buy one get one free drink in the lounge. Did not use the pool, it looks a bit small but clean. Room was clean and decor is what I would expect of most hotels. Toiletries provided, except for lotion. Bar is small, but easy to find a place to sit. They also have pizza, and a few appetizers to purchase if you are hungry. The breakfast selections were in need of restocking, but there is a fair amount of variety (once stocked) of both hot and cold items. Check out staff less friendly than check in staff, but except for that, all of the other employees were friendly and looked like they appreciate the customers. Heavy rain the night we stayed and had a large spot on the carpet where water leaked in. Upon check out, i felt like the young lady did not care a lot about this, but she did say she was sorry. Just wished the goodbye on check out was as friendly as the hello on check in. Except for those couple of things, would happily recommend this place. Also when inquired about the $50 gift card for two stays, she said, "Oh. You'll either get something mailed or emailed". She portrayed disinterest in conversing.

    « Great stay »

    After a poor motel stay in Bayfield, WI (a different hotel) it was nice to stay at a property that was well kept and offered good amenities. Breakfast was great and our bed was very comfortable! We will stay at this hotel again on a future trip.

    « Consistent Quality »

    Easy check in, easy express check out, friendly desk & custodial staff, clean facility, great breakfast selection in a clean area, lounge staff were super friendly (even remembered me from a stay quite a while ago), walking distance to lake/park, shopping & dining and, most importantly, comfy bed.

    « Father's day »

    This hotel was quaint, comfy, cozy. They expend their hospitality to the upmost. Breakfast was a absolutely delight. Will definitely stay here again. The pool opens at 7am- 11pm. Excellent. Lake minocqua is directly across the street.

    « Love this place! »

    This place is perfect! The staff is fantastic, very friendly!! The rooms were really nicely updated, very impressed. Stayed here 20 years ago and expected the place to be old and dated. Far from it!! The amenities were great! Hot tub, pool, bar overlooking the pool, awesome! The location to downtown Minocqua is unbeatable. Shopping and restaurants to your left as you leave the hotel, beach and park to your right. If I had to say one thing negative about the place was the price. $152 per night including tax.

    « Decent Place to Stay »

    The hotel and staff are good for the area. This is about what you would expect. A basic hotel room that looks like it has been updated, the bathroom was very small and needs a little work. But overall it is pretty good. The price being charged for what you get is very overpriced. It is summer in a tourist town so they get away with it but it still leaves a bad taste. Good Hotel - Good Staff - Not a deal.

    « Wonderful year after year »

    I stay here one night every year, and over the past 6 years this hotel has been consistently clean with friendly and helpful staff. Best location in town. Nothing fancy and not waterfront but directly across the street from town beach, playground and park.

    « Consistently well above the competition »

    I have stayed at this hotel on visits for the last three years. The attention to cleanliness has been superb. The quality of things from A/C, shower, bed, room furnishings, breakfast, is excellent. I highly recommend.

    « Great hotel and staff! »

    Check in was smooth and friendly. One key card didn't work but a quick stop at the front desk and we were all set. The room had all amenities listed and we thought the room was very clean. Now we must tell management about Denise who is the shining star. She takes great care and pride of the breakfast area. She made herself available to help us and even went to get me some ice. The breakfast burritos were good, waffle machine worked great and I can't imagine why anyone would not find enough to eat. Even the eating area was spotless. We also enjoy the lounge area and in the past have enjoyed the pool area. We love the location and will stay again.

    « Great Location »

    This hotel is nice, clean, friendly, and in a great location. Lounge is very nice and pool/patio are very pretty. Right in downtown Minocqua so you can cross the street and shop all the stores. Restaurants are close by. I stay here everytime I visit area.

    « So So. »

    This is an OK choice, although I must say that our pillows smelled fusty. That is so off putting. The bath is tiny and was dirty behind the door. Room was reasonably updated. Please update the row of anemic plants in glass containers at check in...sets a bad tone IMHO.

    « wrong rate »

    poor, tried to charge us 10.00 more when we checked in even tho the system would not let her she risked loosing a long time customer to make a quick 10.00 , poor decision, will not stay there again! Beds were rock hard and continental breakfast was dog food!

    « Not bad, not great. »

    The room was large and updated but the bathroom tiny and dated. While the place wasn't shabby and clearly had been updated regularly it still felt old and tired. Breakfast was OK but not great. It does seem to be a place for workmen and business travellers rather than vacationers, but Minocqua is not really a vacation place anyway. Dining options in town are also very limited.

    « Very Nice stay »

    Room was very clean. Bath fan was noisy and toilet is low. Could use an upgrade. Breakfast was great, good variety. French toast was hard, but the rest was outstanding. Pool and hot tub was very nice.

    « Alright stay. »

    Overall was alright, 2 of 3 desk people were nice. I was put in a room with a broken door frame, and did not secure properly, was left open after cleaning. Wasn't fixed or offered a different room. Did not get drink vouchers like other guests received. Very limited elect. plug socket locations.

    « Wonderful Hotel »

    The stay was very pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was amazing. More than what I expected from a continental breakfast. There were so many options to choose from. The kids really enjoyed the pool.

    « Great place to stay »

    Snowmobile trip with 2 other couples. Perfect location to trail access as well as lots of restaurants. Room was very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was hot and had a great variety. The in-house bar was nice and we liked the buy-one-get-one-free incentive! Staff throughout the hotel was very friendly, helpful and courteous! We would definitely stay again!!

    « Great hotel for snowmobiling »

    We had a family reunion with three children and their spouses. Total of eight adults--four couples. We had a snowmobiling weekend. We flew in from Washington DC and Chicago to Central Wisconsin Airport (Wausau), rented cars and drove 70minutes north to hotel. Rented snowmobiles Hotel is great. People are friendly. Breakfast each morning free and fine. Rooms clean--a little 'dated' but perfect for the weekend. Able to park snow mobiles out front at night Would do it again!

    « Quiet, comfortable, clean, and friendly »

    Stayed here while in area to XC ski at Winter Park. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Surprised that it was not busier but fine with us. Breakfast was well organized with good choices. Downtown is within walking distance.

    « Would return and recommend! »

    Spent two nights here as our primary purpose to visit the area was for nordic skiing at Winter Park. Our clean and quiet room was on the third floor. Loved the abundance of pillows on the beds. Location was great for us as we walked to places in town we wanted to visit or eat at. Front staff was very friendly!!

    « nice hotel »

    Stayed here many time nice place with a bar .swimming pool is nice. right by shopping centers and restaurants. Great to take the sled and snowmobile from there nice trails. friendly staff would stay again.

    « Excellent Service »

    I would recommend this Hotel for Business or Family fun! Excellent service above and beyond! Offers good food with their breakfast bar, offer discounts for local restaurants. Everything you need for your convenient. Thank you for your great service, I will be coming back.

    « My granddaughter and her family were here for five days »

    She and they told me that the rooms were great and the breakfasts were marvelous; much better than a higher-priced hotel in the same town and they loved the pool! The hotel is right in town and if you like Japanese food, sushi, it's about a block away. Island Café for breakfast is also close by, about 3 blocks down the street.

    « Great But for Bar »

    Hotel was clean and neat, breakfast and check in staff were great. Bar closed early (10:30 on a weekend) which was a key factor in choice of this hotel over one across the street. Would stay one more time, as previous stays were OK.

    « Nice bed and great breakfast »

    We have stayed at this hotel for 4 years in a row or so,and find it a great value. The lobby is cozy with a nice fire burning and they gave us a 2 two-for-one coupons for the little lobby bar, which opens in the late afternoon. The breakfast is much better than most US hotel breakfasts and included scrambled eggs, hard boiled, sausage, cream cheese, waffles to make and good syrup.

    « Not your normal Best Western »

    The Minocqua Best Western Plus was outstanding. Extremely nice atmosphere, friendly staff and close proximity to downtown Minocqua businesses and directly across the street from Minocqua Brewing Company. I will definitely stay here again.

    « Beautiful area »

    We had a room on the third floor overlooking the lake. The sink was located outside the bathroom, with the bathroom being quite small. The room was comfortable and roomy with a refrigerator and microwave. There is a intimate bar area in the hotel and, upon arrival we each were given a buy one get one free ticket to use in the bar. We did not use the tickets this trip, but have in the past and enjoyed visiting with other guests. The breakfast room was very clean with the usual fare, but did have eggs, sausage, and one morning had French toast. The hotel is located in a great location to walk downtown or over to the lake.

    « Very beautiful property! »

    Very clean, top-notch place to stay, you will love the pool and whirlpool! The girl down by the continental breakfast was the nicest person we ever met. It was so nice to see someone smile in the morning, she is awesome!!

    « House keeping »

    Was a little disappointed in their house keeping over the New Year's weekend when we stayed at this Best Western. We got up late and went down to the pool around 10:00 and took the tag off our door so they would clean the room. We got back to the room around 10:30 and they didn't get to our room so no big deal so we got cleaned up and went to lunch around 11:30. When we got back later in the afternoon we found a laminated card in our door saying since we had the tag on our door in the morning they didn't clean our room. When we called the front desk they said once their cleaners are done for the day they leave so no one was there to clean our room. Now I understand people punching out when the work is done but the work wasn't done. So they said they'd knock something off our bill and they did a whole $10, as I said disappointing.

    « Concord Inn - Minocqua »

    We had tickets to see Second City Comedy @ The Campanille Center in Minocqua & saw that this BW was offering 2 nights for the price of 1. This was a great deal. Hotel has been remodeled & is very clean & quiet. Staff was professional & pleasant. They offered more than a fantastic continental breakfast - it's the largest 1 we've ever seen. Pool & Hot tub were nice amenities. Walking distance to downtown.

    « Best Western..more like Best Value »

    I was able to get a special rate of $59/night because I was visiting someone who has kidney failure. That was the first thing that got me hooked. Another thing was, the breakfast. I have never seen a bigger spread of food at a hotel. Waffles, burritos, french toast, bagels and toast, cereal, fresh juice, scrambled eggs, sausage and even kringle. Room was VERY clean. Internet was so-so but I was on the top floor and a ways a way from the front desk so maybe that had something to do with it. Will be making another stay here in March.


    A great view of the lake front from our room and a great choice of breakfast items prepared and served in a very clean and well decorated room. The service and selection of beverages in the bar/lounge was excellent. The swimming pool and the hot tub where clean and a joy to use.. We will definitely come back in the summer or fall for a visit.

    « Good nights rest »

    I stayed in Minocqua and it was a very nice hotel The hotel staff was very accommodating and room was comfortable. I would stay at this hotel if I was in the area again. they also give a buy one get one free drink at the bar:)

    « Check over your bill completly »

    Don't plan on having a good time at the lounge. The staff seemed annoyed with our group on 6 almost immediately. After reviewing my cc statement I had a random charge and they claimed it was because I took their clock radio and replace it with mine - couldn't be more of an absurd story. Seems fishy that when I questioned it, she was quick to remove it from my bill

    « Family visit »

    Decided to stay here while taking a trip with my family over the summer to go out on our boat. Had a great time here. The manager Becky was very helpful with telling us about local places in the area and was also very friendly and accommodating. I was very impressed with this property. We usually stay with choice hotels as I am a rewards member, but was extremely impressed with everything that this hotel had to offer. Thank you Becky, and thank you Best Western staff for the great visit.

    « great for a short stay »

    the hotel was central to the town and in walking distance to shops and restaurants, it had a lake view and for a budget hotel had a good level of service and room fitments - it is not really worth spending ectra for a lake view as it they are obstructed by trees plus the hotel has a car park and road between it and the lake side - also smoking is allowed at the front of the hotel and this gave us a disturbed first night as people were outside talking until the early hours of the morning - we moved rooms for the remainder of our stay

    « Family Visit »

    A+ accommodations. Had our doggie with us. Excellent location, excellent staff, great little bar for watching Packer game. Been here several times and never disappointed! Will come back again for sure! Clean, good location to down town.

    « Trust A Best Western Plus »

    We have always had good luck at a Best Western Plus. At the end of September, we were exploring northern Wisconsin and decided to spend the night in lovely Minocqua. Because of the location at the fork of Highway 51, you would expect it to be noisy, but it wasn't. We had a lovely room with a view of the lake. The bed was so comfortable! The staff were all so friendly and accommodating. They offered a very nice continental breakfast. I wish we could have stayed longer.

    « nice room »

    We arrived at the hotel with no reservations, but the Front desk person was very friendly and said that they only have two rooms left. she told me what was available and how much it'll cost including all the taxes and fees. The room was spacious clean and quiet. The staff was very friendly.

    « Very nice stay on our hiking trip. »

    We stayed four nights on a hiking get away. You can't miss the hotel, as Highway 51 runs right by it in either direction. It is a great location in that you can walk to downtown and get on the highway easily. The desk staff is very nice (except when I asked about the housekeeping cards in the room) and the breakfast person is awesome and very accommodating. It is quite quiet for the high amount of guests during our Sunday to Thursday stay. And, the breakfast is really good. They may have breakfast burritos to microwave depending on the number of guests that night, but a very nice variety. Our room had a king bed with a desk chair and comfy reading chair. One thing though, the lake view rooms are not right on the lake, as there is the parking lot, road and beach park first. There is also a bit of semi and back up beeping noises on and off. I am not sure that the back side is quieter. There is also a small bar and a beautiful pool room that didn't seem to get used much at all. I would certainly stay here again.

    « Highly Recommend »

    Breakfast is worth the stay, best one of any motels we stay at on our many trips. Spacious rooms. Free WiFi means a lot to many people, but it doesn't always stay connected. I had to connect about 3 times per day. TV has nice selection in channels.

    « Had a wonderful stay once again »

    We have stayed at this hotel for many years while visiting Minocqua. Great location, clean and friendly staff. Breakfast could be a little more varied. Every day was scrambled eggs and sausage. There were many other options, however, this was the only hot breakfast offered other than waffles.

    « Beef a Rama in minocqua »

    Even during a very busy event (Beef o Rama), the Concord did their best to provide a clean, comforable and fun atmosphere to all their guests. We have stayed here before and will again. Thanks to the manager, Becky, for keeping us informed of all the events and to the hotel staff for making this a great experience.

    « Excellent Location; Super Friendly Staff »

    This hotel is right across the street from a beautiful lakeside park. We stayed in a 2-room, sofa suite for 3 nights. The room was clean. The beds are comfortable (you can request soft or firm mattress). The breakfast was plentiful with eggs, sausage, waffles, and the other usual continental breakfast items, including French toast one morning. The breakfast area is roomy with plenty of tables. The hotel is about a block from the downtown area which has cute shops, restaurants and bars. The best part of this hotel is the staff! Everyone we encountered (personnel from check-in/check-out, breakfast, cleaning and bar) were super friendly and helpful. There is a swimming pool and hot tub, but we did not have time to enjoy them. I would definitely stay at this hotel if in Minocqua again and highly recommend it to anyone traveling to this area.

    « Cleanest Hotel in Minocqua »

    The folks at the Best Western in Minocqua were so easy to work with. It was the cleanest hotel that I have been in for some time. I checked all over to bed bugs, any pests, and dirt and found nothing. The pest control guy they have must do an amazing job. The breakfast was also very simple but tasteful. I will be back an if you travel to Minocqua, this is where you want to stay.
