We have stayed at the Draft Horse Inn for 5 plus years now during spring and fall hunting seasons. It is clean and comfortable after a long cold day in the field. Ben, Sue and their staff are always helpful and accommodating.

We stayed for a brief period at Arcadia. The accommodation was great and Ben and Suzie were very helpful. It was like an extended family. Ben really went extra mile on everything to make our stay comfortable. If not for them we would have suffered a lot.

We stay at this motel often on our picturesque trips thru this area. The Draft Horse is a small, quiet motel. The staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. It is very clean and tidy. The rooms are spacious, updated with comfortable beds. They also offer breakfast in the morning which makes it a very reasonable place to stay! We... More

If I had to be in Arcadia for business in warmer weather, I would never have considered staying here. I would have stayed in La Crosse or Eau Claire and driven the 30 minutes for my business day. In February weather, I had to take a chance on a small town hotel that could be anything from quaint to awful.... More

The Draft Horse Inn is a full service hotel. Nice clean place. But a bit noisy. If you have a hard time sleeping with a lot of noise, then this is not the place for you. Walls must be a touch thin. You can hear a person fart in the next room. But it is clean with good rates.

Thank Kirk P
Ben B, Owner at Draft Horse Inn, responded to this review

Oh no, Kirk. I'm sad to hear the place in noisy. I'll be checking this out as soon as I can, as we really only want everyone to be 100% comfortable. Thank you for letting me know! Otherwise, I'm just so happy to hear you thought everything to be so clean. We really pride ourselves on that. Sincerely, Ben, Owner More
