    « Tommy Tainters stay »

    I stayed at the best western in Rothschild during a week of training for my work. I utilized the fitness center, laundry, pool, breakfast and was extremely satisfied with all. I would recommend this hotel to a friend who may inquire a stay in the area most definately!

    « Beautiful Property! »

    My wife and I stayed at the Best Western in Rothschild and were very happy with our stay. The King suite we had was very large with a separate bedroom and kitchenette. While sold as a full kitchen our room did not have an oven in it but did have everything else a typical kitchen would have. If this room had an oven we would be inclined to bring our own food and stay a few days without having to leave the hotel. The room was clean and bright with minimal noise from other rooms. The breakfast was delicious with great service all around. We will be returning when visiting the area.

    « EXCELLENT - TOP NOTCH »

    I never rate hotels because it takes time. This hotel however is one of the best I've been to in a very long time so it deserved a review. I would highly recommend and would stay again. Even my co-worker I was travelling with made notice.

    « Pet Friendly...NOT »

    We have been staying once a week a BW. We bring our dog. $20 Pet fee is reasonable. With no notice we were charged 30$ and was told BW corporation increased the price. The website still says $20. But note, overall the staff and facility are very good. P.S. bring your own pillow. ALL BW have the most firm and large lumpy pillows

    « Close to food, movies, town and airport »

    Did a non scheduled overnight here and used the BW Plus. Staff was friendly, rooms very clean and close to lots of the basics. Hotel has a pool and free breakfast. WiFi and kitchenette. Within walking distance is a Pick n Save grocery store, movie theatre and restaurants. If you have a car I suggest giving the Brews Brothers Burger joint a try. It was awesome. About 4 miles from hotel. Sleep tight??????

    « Everything You Need »

    Stayed for work and am very impressed with kitchenette in room, cleanliness and room layout. Someone was thinking when they planned these rooms. Appreciated. Near a movie theater and grocery store if you are in need of entertainment and willing to use kitchenette. Almost like camping in Wisconsin...but not.

    « A very clean hotel »

    We stayed in the king suite- very clean, frig/stove very nice feature. The bedroom separate from the TV room, so some could sleep while others stayed up. Breakfast very good, plenty of seating so we were not waiting/fighting for tables.

    « Stayed one night to ski Granite peak two days »

    I believe all rooms have a kitchenette. We don't usually need one but it was nice to have a fridge for dinner leftovers. Good value. But what impressed me was I forgot a pillow I bring with me to hotels at the Best Western. I ended up retrieving it about a month later. Impressive because sometimes things left at hotels are mysteriously never found. Also it is right off HWY 39. Nice hot tub and good breakfast with a lot of dining area. Not enough space to eat at some free breakfast buffets.

    « Just what I would have expected!!! »

    My family stayed in the King Suite room for a weekend conference being held nearby in Wausau. Our hotel stay met all of our expectations. I look for the little things that make me feel like I am at a home away from home. There was a bowl up fruit, with hot fresh coffee in the lobby for guests coming and going. We needed extra towels because my kids always use too many, and the woman at the front desk brought them up in lightening speed. The suite was clean and had everything I needed to cook chicken quesadillas, and hamburgers for the weekend. The pool was a great size, and WARM. Thank you. The hot tub was perfect. The breakfast was always stocked full with fresh cooked eggs, sausages, and the staff kept it very clean. It was a quiet nights sleep. I recommend this hotel for family or Business.

    « Not My Daddy's Best Western »

    I had been leery of Best Western's after several cross-country trips with my family in the 1970s. Well, these are not my Daddy's Best Western. Like the others I've stayed in recently, the facility is new, clean, comfortable with all the amenities I need for a brief stay, and more. Beds are comfortable, kitchenette/eating area well-provisioned, good expanded breakfast and helpful staff. If I'm in the area again, I will definitely stay.

    « Excellent! »

    Stayed here for a quiet New Year's celebration with friends. We stayed in a king suite. The room was spotless and beautiful; beds comfortable (even the pull out sofa bed). The pool was relaxing and well supplied with towels. Breakfast was hot, delicious, widely varied. We have stayed at quite a few Best Westerns over the past 5 years and this was one the best we've experienced. FYI for potential guests, there is a lot of storage space in the suite and the only appliance you DON'T have is an oven.

    « staaying by my son »

    This hotel is right around the corner from my son. I like the place. Really enjoyed the full size refrigerator since I had things to bring in so they did not freeze outside. The beds are comfortable and I like the bathroom, especially the little extra shelf over the vanity. Would prefer an A/C-Heat unit that I could have the fan run constantly so the noise was constant. But all in all, love the place.

    5
    « Awesome hotel! »

    My husband and I stayed Sunday and Monday night. This place is incredible! Very nice staff, clean and spacious rooms and very quiet to name a few. The only thing I would have changed is the fan noise. Sometimes it was hard to hear the tv, even with the volume all the way up. This will, however, not detour us from staying there again!

    « Exellent hotel experience »

    The Best Western Plus in Rothschild, Wisconsin is a great hotel. The facility is clean; rooms are spacious and have everything you need whether a short or long stay. Most of all, the staff is very professional, efficient and friendly. We always stay here when we are in that part of Wisconsin. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone whether business or personal stay.

    « Pleasant, quiet stay »

    Nice, quiet, comfortable room with kitchenette, including stove, dish washer, refrigerator& microwave. King size bed with lots of pillows. Roomy bathroom with tub/shower. Excellent breakfast 6-9AM. Close to hwy 39/51. Good value for the price. Best Western has good rewards program too. Love it.

    « Great place to stay!!!! »

    My husband and I stayed here for almost two months when we relocated to the area and needed to wait for our home to be ready. Great daily rate, wonderful staff and nice room for a long term stay. I would highly recommend for long or short term stay. The daily breakfast is great!!!

    « Always excellent stay »

    Each room is like a kitchenette with stove, ref, and microwave. Stayed here often and always a good experience. Varied hot breakfast items which are always well prepared. Large dining area with comfortable seating and TV's located around the room.

    « Best one »

    My husband was having surgery and the BW was 10 minutes away from the hospital.Last BW we stayed at was a night mare but since this chain is our preferred place to stay we took a chance and so happy we did, hopefully we won't need to come back but if we do this is where we will be staying .

    « Spacious rooms! »

    This is a former extended stay property. Our room had a kitchenette and was very spacious. I wish they would have had queen beds, there was room. My only complaint is that my credit card was charged before I checked out, I wanted to use my debit card, and the check out gal said it was too late. Why not wait until check out time to charge my card?

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    I stayed one night at this hotel on a business trip. While I had booked a standard room, my reservation was upgraded to a mini suite which was very tastefully decorated and comfortable, with full size kitchen amenities. Definitely a bonus. I did not use the pool area, but it appeared to be very clean, spacious and well maintained. The breakfast was the typical Best Western fare. Overall the hotel was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The desk staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again if in town.

    « Best Western Wausau »

    I typically do not stay at Best Western, however, while on business in Wausau, I decided to give this hotel a try. the room rate was reasonable and front desk clerk very helpful. The king room was excellent with a full size fridge and stove (like an extended stay hotel) the room was clean and bed comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Hot food and vey clean dining area. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay while in the Wausau area

    « I am ot sure what you are asking for by title of review. »

    Very nice hotel. Very clean and in good repair. Friendly staff. Very good breakfast. Comfortable rooms stocked with everything we needed. Kitchen was stocked with dishes, pots and pans and utensils. There was a dishwasher, but no oven. There was a nice heated pool and a hot tub. There was also a workout area and laundry.. Our suite had a kitchen, living area, separate bedroom, and a handicapped accessible bathroom. I would stay here again.

    « I don't know what this means »

    It's always clean, staff is very helpful and friendly. Love the room because it feels like a small apartment with kitchen. I work in area every month or two so I like the staff and room. Hotel is nice. Surrounding area is factory and freeway - wouldn't be a destination hotel.

    « Very nice hotel »

    This was a very nice hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. It had a full kitchen, nice desk area, comfortable bed, and great shower. We enjoyed the breakfast in the morning. It had all the things we look for in a hotel room. Because of the full modern kitchen and desk area it would be good for a business person on an extended stay.

    « Great long term stay »

    Wonderful hotel. Staff was very accomodating. Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included and menu items varied each day. Great value. The front desk was extremely attentive to any concern and helped with fax transmissions and mailing if needed! Definitely would recommend!

    This hotel has very nice rooms, with a kitchen, and is a fantastic value. The breakfast had lots of choices and the breakfast room is very nice, also. It was fairly close to the airport. So glad we stayed here.

    Surprisingly quite location. Perfect for a business traveler. Nice, large work area with an awesome kitchenette with a FULL size refrigerator. It was a very welcomed addition after a long day. The Wi-Fi did not cut out as with many other hotels. The breakfast area was top-notch! Great selection and a very smart layout.

    « Great stay »

    Our two night stay was perfect for us. The room was nice sized and clean. The beds were comfortable and our room was quiet. We slept like logs, as they used to say. We were In town for the Wausau Arts Festival, which proved to be absolutely fantastic. It took us 12-15 minutes to drive to the downtown Wausau Festival location. They breakfast was quite good with a couple of hot items. Breakfast bar well maintained and tables clean. Desk personnel were knowledgeable and helpful. Good location for a Wausau visit.

    « Nothing Better!! »

    Our room was outstanding, the main area and the bathroom were both generously sized. The pool and hot tub were at the perfect temperatures. And the staff were wonderful. Breakfast was great! We actually stayed an extra night because we liked the hotel so much.

    « A Welcome Haven »

    We were so pleased to have a spacious, clean room. It was quiet and restful. We couldn't have asked for more. We needed and received a good night's sleep. The bathroom was also spacious. While many businesses around there are not thriving, this is a nugget worth finding. It was within walking distance of eating places.

    « would visit again »

    the staff was very pleasant and knowledgeable about things to see and do in the area. Room was nice and roomy, nicely decorated and clean. Would stay here again. Free breakfast was the usual - some eggs, bacon, waffles, cereal, toast. Close to shopping & nearby attractions but not within easy walking distance.

    « Huge, beautiful room! »

    « Overnight stay »

    Just a quick overnight stay, but the short amount of time we were here I can say we were very impressed. Room was very well appointed with a nice Kitchenette. Granite counters in bath and kitchen were a nice touch. Well laid out space. Didn't get to use the pool but from appearance looked to be very well maintained. Breakfast was good with lots of choices. We will definitely stay here again.

    « Beat Pool in the area »

    We have traveled to the Wausau area for 35 years and never stayed at this hotel. We found the value to be the best. Comfortable beds, nutritious breakfast and the nicest pool in the area to swim laps in.

    « Great stay! »

    We enjoyed our wonderful Suite type room at this Best western! We could have easily stayed a week here with all of the amenities! There was even a larger refrigerator and a sink, cupboards, dishes, and more!! The breakfast had everything any one would want or need at the buffet! Location was quiet! There was a Denny's restaurant and another bar type place close by.

    This hotel was great. It was right next to a water park and price was perfect for that location. We had a fish fry at Restorations Pub which was recommended by the hotel worker. It was good also. We were there for the fastpitch tournament.

    « Too picky maybe? »

    Overall we were very pleased with our stay here. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the facility was very clean and the new pool and breakfast area were exceptionally pleasant. We did have an issue with the room having a king bed tight against the wall with no light or table on that side. We also found the explanation that they didn't have luggage racks because they had closets puzzling.

    I have stayed at many Best Westerns and this by far was the best one I have visited. The lobby is nice. The rooms have a kitchen, a nice shower and the breakfast is very nice. The receptionist was very proud of his hotel. For the price it's a steal. Other hotels in the area that i have stayed at cost a lot more but are not as nice. A hidden gem for a business traveler.

    « A terrific surprise from Best Western Plus »

    I was not aware until this stay that Best Western offered a hotel at this level. The kitchenette and quality of the room were such an unexpected treat. I would seek out this business unit from Best Western again! The service from the staff at this location was far above average. The cleanliness of this location again was a terrific surprise.

    « Great front desk staff, great rooms »

    Convenient for lengthy stays - the king room I had included a 2-burner stove, a dishwasher, and a full-size refrigerator. Hot-tub and pool barely used, so I was able to enjoy it in peace and quiet. Everything was excellent - I only marked sleep quality down one because the pillows, although nice, were too thick for my liking.

    « Great Service and Cleanliness »

    I can't say enough about this hotel. It is a real gem. Always clean. They are extremely accommodating to the guests needs. Awesome amenities. Breakfast is wonderful. I can not think of staying anywhere else on our family vacations. I know I'll be in a place that feels like a home away from home. This is DEFINITELY A 5 STAR HOTEL.

    Due to no fault of Best Western, our reservation was made for the wrong day. Our Staff member got us checked in and resolved the issue while we were in our room.

They certainly know what excellent customer service is. The rooms were quiet and comfortable and the housekeeping staff were amazing.

    « Terrific Room With One Big Flaw! »

    Our room was great, comfortable and fully equipped for a longer stay and our dog was welcome. BUT this ground floor room, 112, had only sheer curtains that allowed a bright light just outside the window to shine in all night with no way to block it. In the morning we found this light was on a wall aling a walkway; passers by could see directly into the room through the sheer curtains. This problem would be simply solved by pull across drapes OR. a pull down shade.

    « Very Nice, Clean and Quiet »

    Stopped for a night and thought this was a great place. The area it is in, isn't much but the stay was so nice. Service at the front desk was wonderful and the morning breakfast was super. It had almost everything you could ask for! Seating area was enormous and you could see that people were actually happy! Loved it. Rooms were cozy and clean as could be! Quiet throughout the building and the linens were superb. There are some other hotels in the area but I doubt they are as nice as this! Nice parking area.

    When I booked the hotel, I didn't know it was fully renevated. The amenities indicated microwave and refrigerator in room. But the room had a full "mini" kitchen, including a full size refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, 2 burner stovetop, sink, dishes, utencils and pots and pans. Plus they have a free breakfast. I will definitely stay there again next time I'm in that area.

    « Friendly Staff-- Gross rooms »

    Lets start with the good things. Breakfast is the best of any hotel I have stayed at in Wausau. Good options--eggs that actually taste like eggs, waffles, etc. Staff was friendly too. The bad -- my room smelled like it used to be a smoking room and that they tried to cover the smell of smoke with a gallon of mens cologne. The bed was very old and lumpy and the sheets had been washed so many times they were worn out in places and had little pills (lint balls) all over the sheets making it feel very dirty even though it was probably clean.

    Beds were comfortable, room was spacious, pool very clean. Breakfast was in a huge area - you werent waiting in a long line or bumping one another (like at other hotels) Staff were curteous. Free use of laundry facilities! Only negative is that it was a room with a kitchenette, and whomever had been there in the past left the room smelling of curry.

    « Nice get away »

    Extending our vacation a day after dropping our son off at Tesomas Boy Scout camp. We have stayed here before and I am sure we will be back again in the future. The pool is the perfect temperature and the whirlpool is very relaxing. The breakfast has a wide selection of food options. Thank you to the staff!

    « Connecting rooms for large families »

    We are a fmaily of 7 and needed two rooms, it was great that they had connecting rooms and you can prop the door in between the rooms open and it's like a huge suite, bonus, you get two bathrooms and two televisions! So many positives: swift check in, clean rooms, clean pool and hot tub, beds were amazingly comfortable, very quiet environment. The only downfall was the quality of the free breakfast... Not a fan of processed, tasteless breakfast meats, potatoes and eggs. If you stick to toast, cereal, waffles and fruit, then you should be fine. Otherwise, our family was very pleased with our stay and will visit again next year during our annual ski getaway.

    « Convenient to CWA for early flights »

    This BW Plus property is only about six-seven minutes from the Central Wisconsin airport. Makes it a nice place to stay when having to take one of those early am flights. Not fancy, but the rooms are large, clean, and the kitchenette feature is nice. No restaurant on site. Didn't partake of the free breakfast because it wasn't available before 6 am. Staff seemed pleasant. Only real complaint I had was not being acknowledged as a Diamond member.

    « Lots of extras »

    Friendly staff. Finally, a nice large breakfast area. The pool/ pool area was a good temperature. The room was spacious and included a fridge, stove top, dishes, dishwasher and coffee maker. The lobby coffee was good coffee all day.

    « Hidden Gem »

    Rather unassuming from the outside, the rooms at this place were fantastic...very spacious with kitchen/dining area and complete appliances including a full refrigerator. Only there for one night, but would be perfect for longer/extended stays. AC unit a bit noisy when operating on high, but can be turned down to reduce noise for sleeping. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very nice complimentary full breakfast. All in all, a great spot close to highway access but without any residual road noise. Nice pool too!

    « Best Western - Best Lodging! »

    Since this property has been taken over by Best Western, we have stayed here every time we are in the area. Rooms are spacious and clean. Amenities are plentiful. Easy access to interstate. Highly recommend!

    « Hidden Treasure »

    This newly renovated facility is tucked away - not right on the interstate but easy enough to find. When in the area, we always stay here. The great things are the spacious rooms with kitchen facilities, the breakfast room, the pool, and the outstanding staff.

    « Soft Bed »

    The bed was too soft for our taste but the hotel and room was clean. We did have to drive anywhere we wanted to go however there wasn't much we expected to do in Wausau. We never felt unsafe in this area and took advantage of the close restaurants.

    « One of the nicest hotels I've stayed at »

    Hubby and I stayed here one night while he had business in Wausau, WI. We were upgraded to a suite that had a kitchen, living area, and separate bedroom. Hubby stays here often for business and Nancy takes good care of him. The king size bed was super comfortable - had a great night's sleep. The hotel is conveniently located to a couple of restaurants, once of which we met friends for dinner and drinks. The included breakfast was especially nice and included scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, waffles, and more.

    « Clean & Convenient »

    We stayed at this hotel for a very short night in order to make a 5:30am flight at CWA. The check-in was super fast and clear, and I appreciate that. All the rooms are suites, so you have a full fridge, two stove tops, dishwasher, microwave and sink. That would be great for business travelers having to stay for extended stays. Room was clean and toiletries were better than most hotels.

    « One night stay nice place. »

    A colleague and were visiting customer location and this was one of the places I picked to rest our heads. Nice hotel and the room was well appointed. Breakfast was a standard US stay breakfast with a good selection and fresh. I will stay here again when in the area. Keep up the good work.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    This was a new motel for us and we did not know what to expect. We were very happy with the facility including rooms and staff. The complementary breakfasts are very good with a very large and well designed room.

    « Very accessible, does the job nicely »

    This hotel is surprising in many good ways. It's hard to miss the Loggers Indoor Waterpark and the exterior of the Best Western looks really cheap next to it, but that offers a sprinkle of surprises when inside. The staff is nice, and the lobby is cozy. There is tasty coffee near a seating area and free computer station. There are a bunch of outlets which is much appreciated and the furniture is cozy and cute. The breakfast area is plentiful and the food is decent (the cinnamon sugar on oatmeal is very tasty). The pool is nice, a little larger than expected, and very clean. The rooms are suites which is nice. The rooms feel large and even though our room was not technically an "handicap accessible" room, the doorframe as were wide enough for a chair to fit through without a problem, and enough space between the tables and bed for a chair to move without rearranging furniture. There was a hand rail by the shower which was fantastic. I've never been in such an accessible room without it being specifically advertised as such. The pool was also the most accessible pool I've ever been to - props to this place! They had a clean water chair in case someone didn't want to use the stairs with rails (which for most people is also already more accommodating than most pools). Perfect pool for Marco Polo if you're the only group inside :) Hottub has a cute little color changing light. At first was a little irked that the hot tub jets turn off automatically after 15 or so minutes, but was glad to be forced to move a little if we wanted more time. Pool water was a nice temperature (still a little cold at first, but very easy to adjust to). Appreciated the free fruit! They actually have tasty fruits and good coffee (free often means gross, but not here!) Very quiet hotel which was nice. Plenty of parking too. Close to Arbys if you like that. Great area to go for a quick jog and there's a small movie theater and grocery store within walking distance. Would definitely be happy to stay here again. Tip: you do need a car if you're staying here. Also, don't go to the Green Mill for food. It's like a pretty, glorified gas station. You're paying a lot for just meh and convenience. Go the extra distance for Olive Garden. Biggest complaint: needs larger garbage cans in the rooms, and there's definitely a smell in the hallway, by the laundry room and in the fitness center. Nothing intolerable, but definitely noticeable. Could be just a bad cleaning smell, but could also be body odor too. Not sure. But the rooms don't smell like that so its only a temporary issue. Otherwise great hotel.

    « Functional/Affordable/Clean »

    First time stay at this property based on business travel. Most reviews are accurate. This is newer hotel with nice rooms and a functional style. The focus on this hotel is functionality with all suites and many rooms with kitchenettes, and average common areas. The lobby is very small with just a few couches and work table as the common area. The pool is bigger than most hotels in this class and the hot tub was functional. The 'breakfast' room is the biggest common space on the property, but was only open for breakfast. The focus in on the rooms. I had a king with kitchenette. I was an L shaped room with a small work desk. Kitchenette was a full fridge, microwave, two burners, dishwasher, and plenty of plates and dishes. Rooms was well stocked with towels and bath items. I stopped at breakfast one day. Typical offerings for a mid level hotel with plenty of carbohydrates, juices, and coffee. The front desk did also function as a mini store with individual drinks and snacks for sale. This seems to be a great hotel for groups, sports teams, ski trips, or week day business travelers. If you want to be in and out or enjoy time primarily in your room, this is a great stay. If you are looking for something more intimate, cozy. or more common areas then I would suggest looking into another property. Updated, functional, clean (borderline sterile), and a strong value.

    « Will Be Back Again »

    This hotel is the place to stay! The staff are so friendly and helpful. We felt at home during our stay. The room was very comfortable. We thought that being filled up for the night may be noisy--it was not. We got a good nights sleep and had a great breakfast in the morning. The location is off the beaten path, but worth the drive. It's in a quiet area. We will be back when in the area again.

    « Excellent choice for team travel! »

    This hotel offers large rooms (suites are also available), full size refrigerators and microwaves, a full hot free breakfast, modern and clean accommodations, a new pool area, a welcoming lobby area, and free laundry facilities. Staff was AMAZING and price was right! We will definitely stay at this hotel again if we need to stay in the Wausau area.

    « Very Nice Stay »

    This was for a last minute planned trip. Most hotels were booked for the holiday weekend/area basketball tournament. I was fortunate to call at the right time and get this hotel due to a cancellation. Pleasant surprise. Very nice room. All rooms have a small kitchenette. The bed was very comfortable. The teens said the pool was very nice, perfect temp and not smelling/feeling like major chemical overload. The room/halls were very quiet. I would have never guessed the hotel was fully booked.

    « Nice place to stay near Granite Peak »

    We usually stay at Stoney Creek because this place is usually booked. Stoney Creek is nice but these rooms are bigger, nicer and cleaner. They just look newer. The breakfast is included and is the normal waffles, bagels, cereal, microwave oatmeal, watered down juices and milk cartons...not unlike any other hotel free breakfasts so nothing to rave about but at least it's included in the room rate. The cost isn't bad being under $100/night and we got to bring our dog for another $20/night so that was good. I'd much rather bring him along than have to put him in some pet hotel. The beds were comfy and the pillows were plush. It's really close to Granite Peak so not too far of a drive. The staff was very friendly and pleasant to communicate with. The wifi was included and very strong signal throughout the hotel. Basically the hotel met all of our needs so we'll try to definitely book here again the next time we ski Granite Peak.

    Hotel is clean, housekeeping certainly the best of all hotels including mariott, hilton etc. Breakfast needs more vegetarian items. Manager is always smiling and ready to assit, coffee and tea at the reception helps.

    « Wonderful two night stay »

    This was our third visit to Wausau and we decided to try something different on a busy MLK holiday weekend. The Best Western Plus in Rothschild exceeded our expectations on both nights this weekend. As others wrote, rooms were clean and quiet, breakfast was good and plentiful, the pool was great for the kids. What set this B.W. above others was the exemplary staff under direction of general manager Nancy Schauer. What a tight ship Nancy runs! I don't usually consider Best Western to be a 5-star hotel chain but this one deserves that label. Very well done to Nancy and her entire staff! Thanks for the great stay.

    I was pleasantly surprised with my stay at the Best Western Plus in Wausau. The staff were very accommodating to our early check-in request, and treated us so nicely despite having to work on Christmas Day. The hotel we recently re-done, so everything was nice and new. The room was large and had a kitchenette with stove-top and refrigerator, which really came in handy. Pool was fun! Great stay.

    We loved staying at the Best Western Plus. We love the spacious rooms and bathrooms. The rooms were very clean. The breakfast area is huge and the food was delicious. We love the variety of foods offered. We discovered this hotel last year on our trip home to visit family and will continue to stay here each time.

    This hotel must have been recently updated. Friendly staff and huge breakfast area with decent breakfast fare. Had 2 rooms. One king suite with living room and king in bedroom with 2 TVs. The other room was 2 queen beds. Both rooms had a full kitchen. Clean and good location. Would definitely stay again

    « Happy Stay »

    WE stayed two nights on this trip and everything was clean, well prepared, the staff was pleasant and we will stay there on two subsequent trips. The hotel is a little out of the way so you need to take a circuitous route to find it but it is very worthwhile.

    « Yes! A hotel that gets it all right! »

    My husband and I travel all over the midwest, and we are always looking for the right property at the right price...and this time we hit the jackpot! This Best Western is A+ in our book! For less than $100/night we were treated to a room with all the little things that make for a really comfortable stay. To start with, the kitchenette's cabinets were actually stocked with useful items, like a cutting board, pots & pans, micro-safe glass cookware, dish soap, paper towels, and salt & pepper, along with the usual dish service. The room itself boasted an actual cork message board WITH pushpins, a comfortable chair, a full-size laundry basket, and plenty of hangers. Normally king bed rooms are a bit skimpy on size, but this one was spacious. The bathroom had a reasonable amount of counter space, plus a shelf for all a girl's mystery lotions. The pool and hot tub were IMMACULATE, and just the right temps. The breakfast/lounge area was gigantic, and breakfast was well-stocked with plenty of hot and cold choices. As a nice extra, the coffee area was separate from the food - no trampling small children waiting for waffles as you try to get your morning cup of joe! Staff was pleasant and helpful, location quiet but convenient...seriously, this place has got all the bases covered. We don't often get to retrace our steps in our travels, but we'll be making every effort to revisit this property!

    « Great Room, Great Price! »

    We stayed at this Best Western for the first time, due to my recent acquisition of Diamond status with BW. We were pleased to be upgraded to a 1-bedroom suite. The room was beautifully appointed with nice, comfortable furniture, a king bed, a full kitchen, and a separate room for the bath and sink. The room was spacious, well-lit, and very comfortable. The full-size refrigerator and freezer was an especially nice surprise since we'd stocked up at our favorite local cheese factory. We were almost sorry that we were only staying 1 night. With a room like this at this price ($98/night), it would be a great place to hang out for a longer stay.

    « Just Wonderful! »

    This place is absolutely spotless! I was here for drill weekend and I have been stay at different hotels throwout Wasau/Rothschild and hands down, this is best place I've stayed. The lady checking me in was very nice. The room looked like it was never used. Plus I love the idea of the tiny kitchens in them. The bed is super comfy and the rooms smell clean. I will continue staying here every time I'm here for drill weekend. As long as they continue giving me my US government discount.

    I thought this hotel was great! It had everything that I needed in one place. The room was cleaned. Loved the kitchen in the hotel room. It was handy for storing restaurant foods. The beds were great! They provide many services in one place. The breakfast food had selections that I liked. Coffee was great! I would definitely come back to this hotel again.
