“Not bad for the price”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

The staff was super friendly and the rooms were cozy (in a good way). That said, my key cards never worked the first time around...nor the second....or the third....would take 10 attempts before the key card would actually open the door. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was a mix...coffee and breakfast breads were good, but the biscuits and gravy were not terribly good. Some of the biscuits had obviously been in the pan too long as the bottoms were brick hard. Location was great and plenty of things to see nearby. If you're just looking for a place to park your body after a day of traveling or checking out the local mall, it works perfectly fine.

Green Features: Always love it when I find hotels that do this.Prefer to not waste water on changing towels, etc. each day.

We appreciate your feedback! I am glad to hear that our staff were cordial and that you found your room comfortable. I do apologize, however, that we fell short on our breakfast. I have communicated your concerns regarding the biscuits to our breakfast staff and the biscuits will be monitored more closely. We will be happy to serve you again in the future and show you our improvements!

We found this motel to be absolutely great in every way. The clerk bent over backwards to help us in any way she could. This motel far out did the luxury motel we stayed in earlier. A definite A++++++

Room Tip: Don't let the outside of the building fool you for the "palace" awaits you inside.

There was a wedding the night we stayed. The wedding party was loud and obnoxious in the halls for hours before the staff kicked them out. Then around 3am someone else's key worked in our door. I felt so unsafe I didn't sleep. I will never stay there again.

Regarding your comments about your stay in May, safety and security is our highest priority for all of our guests. I definitely would have liked to have been made aware of the incident that night or the following morning so that I could have had our maintenance department address the problem with the lock right away. Please contact me, Charles Kaiser - General Manager, personally at 715.834.6611 to give me your room number and more details about the situation, so that I can follow up to take care of any problems. Thank you.

We stayed one night over the Memorial Day weekend. Double room was just 60.00 per night---great price, but I'd have paid double to have a good night's sleep for our family of four (including 2 young daughters). Room was clean but outdated and staff was very friendly. A/C didn't work at all. Tried to open the sliding doors for some fresh air, but were immediately assaulted by clouds of cigarette smoke from people outside. Around 9 pm there were many loud, drunk people outside---screaming, laughing, smoking, and using lots of profanity. We called the desk to complain---they said they'd ask them to quiet down. Some time later, after we had all gone to bed we heard loud, live band music---really LOUD! We called the desk and were told that a live band was playing in the restaurant until 1:45 AM! The 'System" wouldn't allow us to move rooms and "weren't we told at check in about the band??" We had to be up and out at 7 AM, so we got very little sleep. At check out we were offered a "full 50% refund" so we had to raise a stink. We were not paying a dime to sleep in a bar all night!. Didn't bother with the breakfast---we left ASAP.

Room Tip: Don't stay here if you need to sleep.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I am sorry that your recent stay with us was not a pleasant stay one. We are aware that it can get noisy as people go to and from the smoking deck outside the bar, so we do try to inform our guests placed in rooms near the front of the hotel of potential noise associated with the band. I sincerely apologize that the front desk clerk failed to mention this at check in.

I have spoken to our bar's manager regarding the incident and he has assured me that the bar staff will be monitoring the smoking deck more carefully to reduce the chances of disturbances due to noise from the bar.

Thank you again for your review, as your comments help us in serving future guests. Please consider us again when you are seeking lodging in Eau Claire.

I was very happy with my room. It was roomy and comfortable and both beds were very comfortable. The heating and air conditioning are definitely outdated. They gave us a very reasonable rate since my husband was going into the hospital the next day. The room was clean and there is a great hot tub and pool. It's very convenient having a bar and restaurant all in the complex - no need to leave once you've settled in. The continental breakfast is ok. Will be staying there again next week for three nights while my husband has heart surgery.

Room Tip: The room with two beds is much larger than the rooms with a single bed. The single bed room is very...

This is definitely a budget hotel. The room appeared nice when we first entered, and it was clean, but that is the best I can say for it. The bathroom was small and dated, and the beds were hard and uncomfortable. They were sparsely made with very old bedding that did not fit the bed sufficiently. The pillows were puny. Also, the room was small. This was just a place for us to sleep, so I can't comment on any of the other amenities. We stayed here after a couple nights at another $100 per night type hotel elsewhere and the difference was night and day. This hotel was definitely on the cheap. I'd try another comparatively priced hotel before I would come back.

Thank you for your review, as your comments help us to improve the experience for other guests.
I apologize that your experience with us was not what you had expected. It is unfortunate that you were not able to try our any of our other amenities, as those extras help us to stand out from other economy brand hotels.The pleasure of relaxing in our indoor and outdoor pools, the convenience of our on-site restaurant and bar, and access to our on-site laundry and fitness facilities are just some of the things that guests enjoy.
I hope that next time you are in Eau Claire you will give some of these amenities a try, and see the changes we have made in the rooms.

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while visiting my sister at UW-Eau Claire. Problems started as soon as we arrived. The room was nothing like what was listed on my confirmation. Called the front desk and was told that I would have to wait for the manager to call me later that evening. Never called. The room was dirty. There were holes in the ceiling that were stuffed with newspaper. The parking lot wasn't plowed at all. Beer cans and yellow snow on the sidewalks. Outside had a strong smell of propane the entire stay. Outside doors never locked so anyone could walk into the hotel. Had to ask for an iron and ironing board. Middle of the night on BOTH nights there were drunk people outside our door yelling swearing and slamming doors. Police were there BOTH nights. Only got about 3 hours of sleep each night. Second night the drunks kept knocking on our door thinking that it was someone else's room. Second night we ended up packing our stuff and switching rooms at 2am. Night manager only had 2 rooms that we could move two. First one was only 3 doors down (like that would make the yelling less quite). Second one was by a guest that decided to disrobe in the pool area just that night (just what I wanted around my 5 year old). Breakfast each morning consisted of biscuits and gravy toast and omeletes that you could microwave. Ended up going out for breakfast both mornings. I've never stayed at a worse hotel.

You have experienced a very unusual stay at our hotel. I’m terribly sorry other guests’ behavior caused your stay to be so unpleasant. Our staff did everything in their power to handle the noise, and ultimately did have to call the police, who did take care of the situation. Your concerns regarding the description of your room online were taken under advisement and were corrected. Our deluxe continental breakfast includes bagels, muffins, English muffins, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, breakfast burritos, omelets, biscuits and gravy, fruit, cereal, oatmeal, juice, milk, tea and coffee. I apologize that our breakfast options did not live up to your expectations. I hope you have a more enjoyable experience next time you are in Eau Claire.
