    Rooms were larger than expected, clean, and comfortable. We could walk to many restaurants and the campus. Had a great time. Appreciated the underground parking option for security and to get out of the weather.

    The facility was neat and clean. The underground parking was very handy. The manager was very helpful when I needed help using the printer in the business area. The maintenance staff were extremely helpful when we needed to make adjustments to the banquet area we were using.

    Hotel is great! High ceilings make the room seem bigger. Comfortable beds and puffy pillows. Very clean inside and out. Hotel is easy to find and in a great location for going to the college or downtown. Loved it!

    « Visiting daughter at UW-RF »

    This is a great hotel. Great rooms, fitness center and breakfast. The staff genuinely made me feel as though they cared how my stay was. There were 2 men above me lifting weights (it was stunning when they would drop them) and the gentleman at the counter swiftly took care of it. He not only was efficient and kind towards me- he also was kind to the guys who were being so loud. They were guests too so I guess I wouldn't expect anything less. Definitely will stay here again.

    « We love this place »

    This is the best Best Western hotel in Wisconsin! We stay here every time we're in the area, as it's by far the best overall option. It has everything to offer to suit our needs. In addition, we appreciate the friendly and responsive staff.

    « Nice place, Service is suspect »

    I stayed there with a group for a hockey tournament. I made a reservation about 6 weeks in advance. I was provided a confirmation number like usual. I got to the hotel and found that they didn't have my reservation and was then going to charge me the normal rate instead of the group rate we negotiated. I did not bring my confirmation number which was my fault. However, the front desk person was nice and tried to look up the reservation in several ways, but admitted that reservations are frequently lost at the hotel. The park situation is poor at best. There were absolutely no parking spots when we arrived at 6:30 p.m. There was a sign that said additional hotel parking below that lead to a garage door. I pulled down the ramp and the door didn't open. I had to back up the ramp. I went into the lobby to check in and I was told that there was parking below in a heated garage, but you had to call the front desk to open the doors. The below ground parking was very nice. Above ground the hotel shares parking with an anytime fitness and a restaurant. The hotel is hard to find due to no exterior signage except a sign in the back of the building next to the parking lot and the sign is not lit. The first night kids were running up and down the halls at midnight. My son called the front desk at midnight to complain about the noise. The noise from parents and kids continued for the next several hours. I called again at 3:45 am about the noise. We then heard people in the hallway and outside our door complaining that someone turned them in for noise, but the noise just got louder. I finally went down to the front desk and told the young man working that the party had to be stopped as we had to get up at 5:30 a.m. I told him that he needed to tell them to be quiet or be kicked out. He finally did that and the party quit, but not before another 20 minutes of complaining and slamming doors in retaliation for reporting them. The next day I asked to be moved if the same people were staying in the hallway. To their credit I was moved to another floor. The assistant manager and general managers were very nice about the situation and provided a similar room on the 3rd floor. Once we got moved, they also informed me that they would be cutting the rate for my inconvenience. I did not request this, so this impressed me. The second night, it was a bit more quiet. However about 2 to 2:30 am the noise started up again, but apparently with a different group. I called the front desk again and the same person from the night before went right up and told them of the complaints. The people did not quiet down. I went into the hallway to request them to be quiet with no avail. The noise finally subsided about 4 am again. The hotel is on the main street next to an assortment of nice bars and restaurants. The problem is that the people return to the hotel after a night of drinking and are very loud. The hotel does not do anything proactively to keep the people quiet. The funny thing is that the hotel lobby is very nice and large so people could have a nice party in the lobby without having to disturb other guests. The breakfast was out on time every morning we were there and hot. The breakfast is average for this type of hotel. Waffles, eggs, bacon and assorted bread goods. The rooms are nice, roomy and well maintained. The cleaning staff does a good job of cleaning the rooms during the day. The attached restaurant is good, but a little expensive. I would have given the hotel a much higher rating, but they are not good a dealing with noise, as well as the lost reservation. The price is a bit high for this class of hotel, but I realize this is a "resort" type of town, so prices may be a bit higher.

    We have a business conference a the River Falls Best Western Campus Inn a few times a year and are always verysatisfied with this hotel. Clean common areas and the rooms are very comfortable, although if you're picky about your pillow, you might want to bring your own, but not bad either. Typical restaurant breakfast. The staff is exceptional.

    Nice hotel for being out of the big city. Location was right in downtown, and we could walk to grocery store. I would stay there again as it was close to the college campus. We were there for a football game.

    I met a high school friend for the weekend in River Falls. We make this an annual outing to celebrate our friendship of 51 years. We stayed at the River Falls Best Western and were very happy with our room. It was clean and comfortable. It was especially nice to have a good restaurant and bar inside the hotel. Our meals were very good. Our only issue was the noise...both inside and outside the hotel.......fun-loving college kids!!

    « Great location, free indoor parking »

    Great location and great service. Right on Main Street so I could walk to everything, including restaurants. You can park for free under the hotel and take the elevator right to your room which is super convenient if it is cold or raining. Above average breakfast offerings.

    « Business Trip »

    Always enjoy my stays here. My BW status always gets me an upgraded room that I am very appreciative of this fact. I find the room very accommodating with seperate seating and work area. Rooms are equipped with mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Have pool, fitness connection, free wifi, and hot breakfast. Juniors the onsite restaurant/lounge are certainly worth a mention. Wide variety of beers and the food is excellent. I typically must hit happy hour because the pricing is fantastic. 2 beers and a chicken nacho appetizer large enough to be a meal ran me $11 and change. Tough to beat. They accept the state rate and room is certainly spacious enough for an extended stay. I would certainly recommend this hotel if you are in the area. 5 stars

    « Clean and friendly »

    We have always received friendly service with people eager to assist our needs. Rooms are clean!!!! If you have a student at the college you get a discount on you stay. The staff is very accommodating and professional. They were extremely helpful in providing assistance with parking and having a trailer. It is very quiet for being right in the middle of town. Beds were very comfortable and the rooms we cleaned very well.

    « Great Location »

    My husband and I were in town for a rodeo that he was working. This hotel is convenient to the Riverfalls college campus as well as their downtown area and Riverwalk. We found the double queen room to be very spacious. We had our 2 small dogs and newborn baby in tow; so you can imagine we had quite a few things with us. The staff were more than friendly and helpful! There is a bar restaurant that made it nice to grab a bite to eat right at our hotel. The hotel is on a rather busy street corner, but we never heard road noise or noise from other rooms, which is great if happen to have a baby sleeping in the room. I loved being able to easily walk to their downtown area for shopping and stroll their beautiful Riverwalk. We will definitely stay here when we come back to the area.

    « Nice place »

    This is a very nice place and very convenient to the UWRF campus. The only hiccup was the signage. The hotel was only marked by 2 hanging banners and at night were not visible. We drove by a couple times before we realized it was the correct building. Breakfast was very good. Underground parking. Firm bed.

    « Very good for a couple of nights stay »

    I needed pet-free hotel, due to bad allergies. This one fit the bill, although it was about 45 minutes away from where I was actually "visiting". But a nice drive in the country between it and real designation, worked out just fine. Breakfast was pretty good for free, did not stay in town during the day, so don't know what is around this motel.

    « Great location, staff and amenities »

    This gem of a small college town has a wonderful place for short term or long term guests to feel right at home. A welcoming and helpful staff made a great first impression. The nicely decorated room was large with two very comfortable queen-sized beds. Within easy walking distance of unique shops, restaurants, several parks, bike and walking/jogging paths makes this a great place to stay. There is a restaurant on site, as well as, a refreshing indoor pool and gym (Anytime Fitness) within steps.

    « Excellent »

    Everything about this hotel is great. We have stayed here often while exploring the campus, multiple campus visits including during registration and move in time, plus a leisure trip. Parking is underground and elevator takes you where you want to go. Check in and out are smooth. Breakfast has a wide variety of offerings from biscuits and gravy, eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, bagels, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, etc. When you factor the cost of breakfast dining out, with the difference in hotel costs, this is a bargain stay. Swimming pool is quiet and has been empty when we visited. Restaurant is very good with large portions that we were able to split. I enjoy this hotel and plan to use it in the future too.

    « Not well marked but definitely worth the stay. »

    We booked the Best Western for a wedding in the area. We drove by it on the main street because there is only a small sign at the top of the building, not visible if coming from the south (good thing for cell phone directions). Signage needs to be improved from all directions and large enough to be seen while in traffic. The front desk staff were excellent. We arrived a day early and Kelly arranged to give us the same room for both nights. Saturday morning Jim made certain our room was quickly and efficiently stocked, even helping prepare the room with the staff. Both of these men did a stellar job in meeting our needs. The room was clean, updated and well stocked. It was quiet and outdoor lighting never was a problem. Very comfortable queen size bed with plenty of pillows. The fridge and microwave were neatly stored in the cabinet below the television - very neat way to utilize space. The wedding reception was very fun. The food was phenomenal and the staff did a tremendous job of making certain the food was served hot and the tables were continuously stocked. This is a credit to the banquet manager and the young serving staff. Tables were also kept clear throughout the reception. There was never excessive clutter on the tables - again credit to the staff. Everything was as scheduled, even the pizza at ten pm. Checkout was seamless with details of the bill being fully explained. If there is any criticism, it is the parking. The underground garage is limited and so is the outside parking around the facility. Remote parking is in a gravel lot. Overall, very positive experience and highly recommended.

    « We Would Stay Here Again »

    2 queen bed room was very spacious, clean, quiet & comfortable. Beds were firm, but comfortable. Only negative is that the curtains hang over the AC unit & air blows straight up behind the curtains unless you pull them back. A bit annoying, but fixable. Hotel staff very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast typical but decent. Eggs were actually fluffy...not rubbery. Ends a bit early at 9:30 am, so don't sleep in and expect to get breakfast. Underground parking is a nice option. We would definitely stay here again.

    The staff was super friendly the minute I arrived. The room was just as I expected. Actually, it was a little better due to the size and overall cleanliness. The breakfast was super and they had a great selection of food! Also, the business area was big and separated allowing me to focus. I didn't use the fitness part but they have a partnership with a local gym that is attached to the hotel. It is very nice and meets all fitness needs.

    The stay was average at this hotel, the rooms were decent. I found it odd that there was not shower curtain though. The internet was pretty slow. It took a while to check in since the receptionist was not there. The restaurant in the hotel was awful, I highly recommend to avoid eating there or having drinks there. The food was not good at all and it took forever to be served. The breakfast in the morning was very good and there was a good selection.

    « Best fitness facility in months! »

    I hadn't seen this fact mentioned on the hotel website or recent reviews (though a search did find mention in some older reviews), but the hotel fitness facility is an Anytime Fitness franchise located in the same building as the hotel (although across the hotel drive in entry ... a fact to remember for winter visits!) I'm used to hotels at this price point having a few cardio machines and a weight machine or two and some free weights. But thanks to the access to the Anytime Fitness location, I got as a good a workout as I would at my home gym. This dual purpose facility -- a membershbip Anytime Fitness for locals and a fitness area for hotel guests -- is a great idea and deserves to be more widely adopted.

    We stayed here during a UW softball game. The hotel is fairly new, modern, clean and kept up very nice. The rooms are spacious. It's so close to the college campus.

    I really don't know if I will consider coming back. Very noisy Thursday and Friday night till 4:30 in the morning. The room smelled clean, but the floor wasn't vacuumed and the cleaning crew was more interest on being on their phone than cleaning. The only person there that helped us out in any way was the lady who check us out on Sunday morning, and by then I just wanted out of this place. :(

    « Very nice hotel, great location »

    I stayed at this hotel for a conference and our meeting room was in Banquet #1. The noise from the bar down the hallway was so loud we couldn't hear the speaker, and it started at 2:30 in the afternoon and went on until late. The hotel otherwise was very nice, clean, nicely appointed, very friendly & considerate staff. Jim at the front desk was very helpful - I'd left my purse in my room after checking out & he immediately & without hesitation took me back to the room to find it. Just a word to the wise, though, if you're considering having a conference there - find out what the bar had planned first, because it's loud. Also, there's free underground parking, which is a real plus in the Midwest, but if you have a large vehicle, it's a tight squeeze. .

    « It's a hotel »

    The hotel is nothing special. It did it's job in giving me a bed to put my head on after my conference. There were little hockey humans in the hotel so it was a little noisy but that is nothing the hotel can help. The room was a nice size but it was only me so I really didn't care.

    « Clean but noisy »

    Both nights I stayed there, I didn't get a decent night of sleep. One night was a group of young girls who had 3-4 rooms among them yet they seemed to enjoy being in the hallway -- shrieking, yelling, laughing. They all had their rooms open so they can easily go back and forth to party. After 2 hours of this, I went down to complain around 10:30pm. The next night, more drunks were in the hallway at 1:30am yelling/arguing. Clean room, yes. Decent breakfast, yes. But not restful in any way.

    I would highly recommend this hotel. We stay here when visiting our daughter at UWRF. The proximity to campus is great - we can walk to her dorm. The breakfast in the morning is great - bakery items, eggs sausage bacon, cereal, yogurt, waffles...juice coffee. The staff is very friendly, go out of their way to be helpful. The room is clean, the pool/ hot tub are very nice. I think they even allow dogs (?)

    The hotel is on Main Street in near the UW River Falls campus and is very easy to find. The lobby was large and very clean. There is a restaurant in the hotel (but they still have a complimentary breakfast) as well as many other places to eat nearby. There is free parking outside or underground. The hotel has an elevator from the underground parking garage to the hotel floors. Our room was large and had a king bed, easy chair, large desk, refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker and 2 luggage racks (finally a hotel that realizes most couples have more than 1 suitcase!!) The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was also roomy and had a long sink in the bathroom. Towels seemed ok, although we were only there 1 night and didn't use bath towels. Heavy draperies kept out unwanted light in the morning. The bed was a little on the hard side. Breakfast consisted of the usual cereal, yogurt, breads and muffins as well as scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and biscuits and gravy, We'd definitely stay here again.

    Very impressed with room, cleanliness, staff, accommodations. Only issue was that parking was a little tricky at times. Outside sign is not easily visible from the main street. Missed it several times while driving around building. Definitely need to make the sign much bigger and visible from both streets on the corner.

    We chose this hotel more because of distances travelled that day than anything else but it was a keeper. At check-in, Kelly was very accommodating and quite helpful in discussing the local areas points of interest. We were very happy and surprised at the very large size of the room. #310 is a corner room with lots of windows and one I would recommend. There is some underground parking and the rest is above. There is also a restaurant / pub on the premises called Juniors. I will review it separately but it was good. We were here while the University across the street was out for the summer so I don't know how that would change things in season but our stay was great.

    « Who has been in my room? »

    Parking needs to be improved. A guest doesn't expect to have to cross the street to park at a neighboring business. Also, when checking out, I complained about another person's items being in my room. The ironing board and iron were out in the room rather than being stored away in the closet as they should have been. I did not get a discount, or even an apology for what must have been an oversight on the part of the BW staff.

It is in a good location right next to the college, although the signage coming from the south is not the best when trying to find it for the first time.

I don't normally sleep well on hotel beds but this one was great. The bathroom was spotless, the tub drained - which is huge in hotels these days. Breakfast was delicious and free. The WIFI was fast which is important because I was working during the time away. Sadly I didn't make it to the pool.

    « Pleasant stay »

    Stayed here for four nights to visit the in-laws who were hosting some extended family from overseas. Chose BW because it provided the best value for the money with free parking, free wifi, free breakfast, and free access to Anytime Fitness. The hotel is located between downtown River Falls and the campus of UW-River Falls. Good location with access to everything River Falls has to offer. Hotel is clean and the rooms are a fairly decent size. Breakfast area is small and feels cramped especially on the weekends. Instant eggs, sausage links, bacon, biscuits and gravy, cereal, pasties, bagels, and waffles are the breakfast selections. The wifi is fast but I had to reconnect several times throughout the stay. Relatively minor inconvenience. The parking, like others have stated, can be an annoyance. There are limited spots in the below ground garage, probably about 20, and about the same amount above ground. There is overflow parking in a lighted lot across the street but it is free. The rooms are relatively large and clean. The first two nights were extremely quiet and didn't hear a peep. The weekend nights were a little louder with people walking in the halls. Really not the hotels fault but other places we've stayed haven't been that loud. We enjoyed having access to a real gym connected to the hotel. We were able to workout 3x and each time there were less than a handful of people using the gym. Great perk of the hotel. We would definitely visit again.

    Very nice hotel,super clean (SO appreciated), nicely decorated and professional staff. Bed was very comfortable - and pillows were great (kind of seem rare at most hotels) It's a good choice, centrally located in River Falls. Only potential downfall is that it appears to have a very popular restaurant attached (looked good, didn't get to try it) and a number of other restaurants use the same parking lot. Stay on a night when there is ALSO a convention or event at the hotel, and you may have a tough time finding parking. The front desk came through with a solution....but have to think many have to park fairly far from the hotel. Arrive early!

    « My stay at BW Campus - River Falls »

    Overall I experienced a decent 2-night stay at this hotel. The main thing I was pleased about is the hotel's close proximity to the UWRF campus. Could easily walk to my conference. Checking in/out was done quickly and effectively. All staff were very responsive to my needs. The facility(lobby and room) was very clean. Breakfasts were adequate. I did have to turn off the heating unit in my room the second night as it fired up very loudly every 15 minutes or so. The main "issue" I had to deal with, was the failure of my room "keys" to easily open my room door. Needed to make several attempts to get in every time. The keys eventually did work but it took a while and when one's hands are full, this was a bit of a problem. However, if and when I return to River Falls, I will definitely look to return to this hotel.

    « Needs a Good Cleaning »

    Let's see, something nice. The breakfast was very good and that area was quite clean. Good coffee. The two rooms I saw are in need of a deep cleaning. The carpets were stained and needed vacuuming, the bathroom was not clean, including a huge mirror that was falling off the wall and held only by the a hand rail (we were given a handicapped room.) I called the desk and was told that the room probably had not been rented for a while, but really? They missed a huge mirror tilted and ready to fall? I lifted it because it was keeping the drain closed because it was resting on the lever. I got it back on the hooks, but then found the hair and "gross" dirt behind it, along with dried soap. They could not have cleaned the sink without being able to drain the sink. The shower had some moldy looking corners too. I also noticed beverage rings on the nightstands too, so I thought, maybe we need to get another room. Went down to the desk and got keys to one down the hall. Just thought I would check before moving bags....ummmm, the carpet was way worse and I could hear all kinds of road noise. Didn't even check the bathroom. Went back to the desk, returned the new room keys, got my old one back and asked for some cleaning wipes, desk clerk said he was busy and would bring them up in a few minutes. He showed up a while later with a squirt bottle and a couple of washcloths and handed them to me and left. Stunned and definitely never going back.

    Pros: a comfortable bed Cons: 1) be aware: all of the drunk college students parade through the parking lot each night, making tons of noise from 10p-2am. Thursday-Saturday, almost impossible to sleep. 2) free breakfast was wretched: powdered eggs, gravy without anything to put it on, chewy bacon 3) poor service, both before and during the stay, completely incompetent staff. Not knowledgeable or helpful. Did not deliver crib in spite of multiple requests. The town is a dump. Stay in St. Paul at a Hilton property and drive 30 minutes. You'll thank me later.

    « A vacation nightmare. »

    We reserved a room weeks ahead, and thanks to a reservation error we got the only fully handicap accessible room, no bathtub, sink, etc. (You'd think they'd want to save it for an actual handicap guest.) The hotel had no manager on site to resolve the issue. The unwanted accessible features aside the room had burnt out bulbs, drool streaks on the pillows, used complimentary bath supplies, and a spill of some sort on the nightstand. When we finally got offered a new room it was above the in house bar on a all you can eat fish and live music Friday night. Too loud for our baby. After hours of being jerked around we received an acceptable, normal, room. Unfortunately that left us exhausted after driving all day and without time to order food. Safe to say we're hungry, and very much worn thin by the whole ordeal.

    Seriously. The little square pillows might work for little kids; they don't for adults. I can't think of one adult home that I've been to where they're like, "look at those tiny pillows on my bed. They let me sleep so well. Who needs all that pillow space? No one." This is the 3rd time in my life I've had to deal with them, and every time it's felt like I was duped into an uncomfortable sleep for way too much money. You wake up feeling like you were in a car accident. Get rid of the tiny pillows. No one likes them.
