“Bring a calculator into the Office.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

When you check in and pay, make sure to bring your calculator in with you into the office because you are a "stupid American". It is a nice clean motel with a gentle stream running in the back and a decent view of the lake. However, you have to remember the price and the 12% tax for the area and if you do not pay attention they will tack on as much money as they can because they obviously assume you are an idiot and cannot do math. They try to nickel and dime you with an extra 1 dollar to 5 dollars if you are not paying attention. When I paid my weekly rate she tried to charge an extra 150$!! then she just kept trying to scam me... I asked her if she had a calculator and she said no.. then when I said I wanted to go to my car and get mine, she took hers out of the drawer. She had one the whole time. I finally got the honest rate after calculating it myself.

I do recommend the rooms and the views for this cozy little joint.. but DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD INFO AND DO YOUR OWN CALCULATIONS.

They are obviously having a hard time staying in business, so if someone honest is looking for an investment you could really make this place work when the current owners are forced to sell either by their ineptitude or dishonesty.

Room Tip: choose a room facing the lake if you like the view and the stream in the back.

The minute we walked into the room, my sister said how pleasantly surprised she was with the room. We booked the room as a quick stopover from Ontanogan on our drive to Minneapolis, MN. My main consideration was the price. We arrived about 7pm and check in was quick and simple. Plenty of parking, actually easy parking if you were towing a boat, which we were not but a couple people were. We were amazed how big the room was. And Lake Superior is just across HWY US2. I read the previous review and think the motel is now under a new owner and has been re done.

We stayed the night in Ashland, WI on our wonderful 22-day road trip in September, 2009. Unfortunately, we ended up in a small cheap motel on the main street across from the lake. Anderson Motel had a sign out front showing it was an "AAA" approved motel, so we rented a room for $40 cash. We were exhausted after 14 hours of driving from Toronto, CAnada. All we wanted was a nice night's sleep in a soft bed, so we entered the room and it smelled discusting. A non-smoking room, it was heavily stained with nicotine. During the night, I didn't sleep much at all, because of the bad smell coming up from the carpet or under the bed. I was not brave enough to look further, so I just layed there all night. My husband is a heavy sleeper, so he wasn't affected by the smells, which kept me up all night. Please avoid Anderson Motel. It is discusting.
