We had a great time at The Pointe earlier this week. We stayed two nights and the room (2021) was clean and comfortable and the view off the balcony was fantastic. Mid week pricing makes it very affordable. We will be staying there again!!

Dear Wayne,

We are happy you had a great time during your stay with us. Your accommodation was a Studio Unit and yes they do have unobstructed views of beautiful Minocqua Lake. Our hospitality team take great pride in offering updated, clean, well maintained rooms for our guests comfort and relaxation. And, as you state, the balcony deck was fantastic; each Studio and all our Suites offer either walk-out balcony decks or patios with furniture to enjoy the outdoors from their room --- a nice amenity.

Thank you for your review and we hope you will allow us to host your next stay when visiting Wisconsin's beautiful Northwoods.

The Pointe Hotel is perfectly situated in Minocqua, close to restaurants and shops, but on the lake and close to nature too. The one bedroom suite, which included a kitchen and dining/living area, seemed small due to the amount and size of furniture in the rooms as well as the overabundance of northwoods decor. Regardless, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Aside from the call of a loon early in the morning, the property was very quiet and well maintained. All in all, I recommend the Pointe for its location and modern conveniences.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of The Pointe. It is important we hear from our guests as it tells us how well we're doing taking care of our guests. The Pointe does have a wonderful setting and our location is well positioned making dining, attractions and shopping easily accessible. Our condominium units offer more than a motel room and are a great value for a great stay. The loons cruising our shoreline in the early morning hours and numerous eagles perched lakeside in our towering pines are a common highlight of many guest stays. Nature at its best! In closing, than you for lodging with us and we appreciate your recommendation; hope to see you again, soon!

Stayed two nights at the Pointe Hotel and Suites. The rooms were very nice. Clean and very nicely decorated. They did not have some of the ammenedies you would expect in a suite type room. There were no toiletries in the bathroom - shampoo, conditioner, etc. Had a small kitchen area with refrigerator, stove and micro, but very limited on utensils, etc. and no pots or pans. No towels for the kitchen area - had to use the bathroom hand towels.

A note in the room indicated that they did not "clean" the room every day. They would only change the sheets, vacuum and do the bathroom every fourth day. We did get clean towels each day, but only if they were left in the bathtub. If they were on the towel bar or shower rod, they would assume we were using them again. This whole thing kind of turned us off. The rooms were reasonable ($125.00 on Thursday, and $165.00 for Friday). Would think you should get clean towels and sheets for that price......

The pool was very nice, they offered a small breakfast in the morning that was very nice and plentiful. No little shops or cafe in the hotel. Ice was only available for $2.00 a bag from the front deak. Have never been at a hotel that didn't have an ice machine.

The hotel was nice but would like to have had some of this information about what was there and what wasn't there - could plan better instead of being surprised.

Room Tip: Third floor room are nice - good view from the balcony and a very nice breeze.

Dear Carolyn,

Thank you for your review of your stay as our guest. We appreciate guest input as it is used as a great barometer to measuring our product and service.

Our room bathrooms are equipped with a "total body" shampoo product that is devised for both body and hair cleansing. In using this product, we reduce the waste of many plastic bottles that are harmfull to the environment. However, individualized hygiene products are available by request. Also, as part of our "green" initiative to reduce the use of energy, water and detergents, our hotel follows a long standing practice of many lodging properties and condo-hotels to promote the reuse of bed and bath linen.

Thank you for your comments on the pool area. This is our "flagship" amenity and we take great pride in providing a safe, clean and comfortable environment for relaxation.

Our Suites provide an icemaker in each refrigerator. For guest convenience, without having to leave the property, bags of ice are available to fill picnic coolers for a day out-and-about, or to provide a greater quantity of ice for room needs. All Suites provide cook and dish wares and kitchen dish cloths and towels are a standard provision. This may have been an oversight at the time of room set-up, and for that I apologize.

Thank you for staying with us and the valuable input shared. Our goal is simple; to make every guest stay an experience second to none. We hope to see you in the future.

We stayed one night in the one bedroom suite. Very clean and quiet. The grounds were really nice. They had a walking trail. We caught a bunch of fish off the pier. The Pointe is close to town but still had a "getaway" type feel. Not sure why someone would give it a terrible review. The pool, sauna, spa and exercise area were all fine. The continental breakfast was the standard fair. They did have sausage and potatoes which was cool. I would definitely come back. Even heard some loons on the lake!!

Room Tip: As far as the view is concerned, you are looking at the lake through the trees. It is still very pr...

My family and I stayed one night in a one bedroom suite July 12-13, 2012. It was very nice. We had the best time fishing from their many piers. We caught several fish and were some were even big enough to take home! The grounds are clean and very nice. Lots to do at night also. Nice bon-fire pit with plenty of wood and gas grills too.

Thank you for your review. It sounds like your family had a great time; that's what your family getaway should be all about. I'm glad you were able to take advantage of our lakeside setting and fishing from our piers. The piers area of our shorelie is a great place to catch all species of fish natural to Lake Minocqua, and many of our guests have shared your fishing success as well. Our lakeside campfire patio has become one of the best amenities for quality family time, socializing with other guests, and staring at starfilled skies. Glad you enjoyed it and our property.

Thank you for staying with us, and I hope we will see you back in the near future.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom standard unit. Had two vanities. Had a full kitchen. Can walk to town.
Very clean. We would definitly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the lake side as opposed to the road side.

Dear Michael E: Thanks for your review, we greatly appreciate your comments. Your room was a lakeside One Bedroom Suite. This room is great for family stays as it offers a "home" atmosphere with full kitchen to dine in, living room and private bedroom, and so much more.. And, all our rooms provide access to their private lakeside patio or balcony deck with furniture...a nice feature. Our housekeeping team understands the importance of providing clean, comfortable accommodations; that's what they want when they travel. Thanks for being our guest. Our hospitality team looks forward to hosting you on your return trip!

This was a great hotel. Check in and out was easy. The staff was really nice and helpful while we were there. We stayed in a room with a king bed and whirlpool bath. The room was clean and having a fridge was a nice touch. Although we didn't get to spend time on the balcony, the other amenities were really nice, such as waffles and fresh fruit. I forgot to bring a map back with me and I called Tanja was kind enough to send me one. Overall, wonderful stay!

Dear D K,

Thank you for the nice review. Our goal is to make every guest stay as comfortable as possible, from the ease of check-in to wonderful service once a guest settles in for their stay. I'm glad we accomplished that with your stay.

As you found, our rooms are more than just a motel room. All our rooms allow the guest to exit to their own private patio or balcony deck complete with furniture to enjoy the outdoors and our lakeside setting. Also, our suites offer full kitchens, dining areas, living rooms and private bedrooms; the spacious room's and amenities offered are especially great for families.

With your request for a map; our service to our guests does not end just because you checked out. I'm glad we were able to help you with follow up service after your stay. Our hospitality team wishes you a great summer, and looks forward to saying hello once again in the near future!
