“Why you should NOT stay at this location”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

First ... realize that this is a FRANCHISED HOTEL ... so the real MOTEL 6 can't help you if you have a problem. The staff can only take your money and nothing more. They refer you to the manager, so if you want to spend your time waiting for him to arrive rather than taking care of business or enjoying your stay ... you will simply have to deal with what you get.

If you can overlook the stench in the hallways and make it to your room, you will sleep fine. It is clearly NOTHING to right home about. If you need your clothes pressed, you will be able to get an iron at the front desk, but the table top ironing board is filthy and broken ... so good luck with that.

If you are worried about your personal items going missing, you should be. We had something taken and the manager put in writing that he trusted his staff so he couldn't explain what happened. If the staff isn't responsible ... then I guess someone else was given a key to the room?

When you check in, you pay for all the nights of your stay ... they don't just "HOLD" this amount on your card as all other quality hotels. So when we moved rooms (the first one smelled like old food), the price was adjusted. Well, sort of. The first and second nights were calculated and posted on the statement ... but the third night's credit was not included. And then the credit was never issued back to our credit card. It's called "theft of services". And again the manager said that was "how things are done".

It is off the beaten path but that isn't a big deal ... but we won't be back. And not because of the issues but because the manager didn't care to take care of the situation. Really ... what has customer service come to? Poor Poor Business!!!!

Room Tip: Pick one at another hotel.

We were looking for a place to stay that wasn’t overprice and not on the busy strip of the Dells. This place only took us about 7 minutes to get to the middle of the Dells by going the back way and not the Interstate. The motel also give you free passes to Chula Vista water park -- we had planned to go to Chula Vista but the motel has a very nice inside pool and large hot tub along with a kiddy wading pool on the outside- that no one was using so were preferred having the whole pool room to ourselves several times. Rooms were quite and clean - one of the better Motel 6 I have stayed at.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 1st floor - they do not have an elevator and next to the pool if you plan on using...

I travel often and stay at many different hotels ranging from M6 to Four Seasons.
Originally from the Dells area, I'm usually here every summer.
I usually stay for about a week and I don't like to pay the inflated summer prices.
The last 2 visits I have chosen to stay at this M6. Matter of fact, I'm currently here now. Although a little ways out of town, if you are driving then this is a good choice. The rooms and hotel are very clean. This is by far the nicest M6 I have ever stayed at. The staff is helpful and the area is safe. It doesn't have a ton of frills, but it is a good deal compared to some of the other resorts around the area. I plan to stay here every summer unless the cleanliness quality changes. My little yorkshire terrier is happy here also. Totally recommended

We have stayed at this motel 3 times now and have never been disappointed. The only down side of this is it is out of the way and have to go into a lot of round abouts to get to the downtown area. It is quite and away from the craziness of the College Students that seem to have no respect for others.

Stayed there for 2 nights! What a nice little place, and a great deal just outside the busy main area of Wisconsin Dells/Lake Delton! Very nice grounds, very clean rooms and common area. The people working at the front desk were extremely nice! We didn't know when we booked, but you also get FREE Indoor/Outdoor Waterpark passes to Chula Vista which is a marvelous place. The FREE WiFi was great and worked even at the furthest reaches of the parking lot. My phone didn't switch over to 3G until I was well out of the parking lot!
If you don't want to spend big $$$ to stay at a resort, or don't want the Old Divey Dells Motel in the main area, check this place out! For our next trip to the Dells, I would consider this nice little place again!
If you're NOT familiar with the New Roundabouts in the Dells area, they can be a bit confusing, but they did a great job with the signs pointing you in the right direction!
Its obviously NOT a 4 Star Hotel, but pound for pound its a 4 Star Rating! Great job folks!

Room Tip: All the rooms will have a similar view/location. If you're on the HWY side, it could be a bit lo...

We stayed 3 nights here and it was very pleasant. The pool wasn't overpowering with chlorine smell which seems to be a problem at most hotels we go to. The staff were very helpful and recommended places to go while we were there. The only thing that would have made our stay a little easier would have been a hair dryer in the room.

We stay at one of the Motel 6 properties about 50 nights a year when on holiday in the USA.
They can vary enormously. Generally, those not operated by 'corporate staff' like this one - locally operated - are more than adequate. The manager and family make an extra effort.
For a start you get 'free' wi-fi {it really niggles when motels want to charge extra}. This motel has an excellent indoor pool and very warm sauna spa pool. A real bonus as a lot of Motel 6 properties close there pools (presumably because of cost).We stayed for 2 nights and yes the towels are small and a bit thin - but it is clean - has everything you need and reasonably priced.
Every dollar we save is a dollar towards our next visit to the USA !!
