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!

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!

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...

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?...

Beautiful old hotel that embraces the beauty of old craftsmanship while providing all the mod cons! The hotel is right on Lake Superior and guests can enjoy the lake from the comfort of the hotel decks.

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...

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,...
