“Not fancy, but met my needs.”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

This is a little motel right on the highway. You could park your car there and walk to everything in New Glarus. The room was very clean. The bathroom was nicely tiled and had obviously been recently remodeled. The water temperature and pressure were good. Tub drained well and there was a curved shower rod which is always good. The carpet in the main room does need to be replaced, but otherwise everything is very clean. The room includes a fridge and a microwave. The bed was comfortable though not as large as I prefer. There is wifi but I was not able to connect. My room also included a table and a couple of chairs. The free breakfast buffet was very simple but adequate. Two cereals, toast, bagels, pastries, orange juice, coffee and milk. The rooms are non-smoking which is important to me, but there were ashtrays right outside each room so folks could smoke there. I did not smell any smoke in my room. The next time I return to New Glarus, I would stay here again.

This motel still has steel room keys and is heated and cooled by a window unit. This is a one story motel where you can park your car in front. reservations, check in and check out were handled fast and efficient. While the units face the road, there is very little noise as the road (though a state highway) handles low traffic volumes. Everything was clean and functioned as designed. There is a refrig in the room.

If I was again in the area I would stay there again.

Not a lot of choices to stay in the metropolis of New Glarus, WI - so I'm thinkin' the motels in the area take advantage of that to our chagrin. This is an old, outdated motel. It is very clean, I'll give 'em that - but criminey, 107 bucks for a one night stay in what otherwise should be a budget motel? I would probably have cut them a lot more slack if I got a better value for my hard earned cash.
Oh - and the beds were as hard as a rock. No wait, harder.
But the front desk gal was nice. Gave us recommendations as to where to eat.
Good location. And if you drink enough New Glarus beer, none of this will matter.

The Swiss Aire Motel is a smaller hotel in New Glarus WI. For $$$$ more you can stay at the larger hotel. But why? (the pool, that's all) The Swiss Aire Motel is walking distance to Culver's, the "Food Mart" and Roy's grocery store and Downtown. It is Motel style, one level. You park in front of your unit. NO SMOKING ALLOWED IN THE ROOMS! There are ashtrays provided outside if you must. A refrigerator and a microwave and air conditioning are in the rooms. Plenty of room hanging and drawer space for your clothes, a blow dryer, double sink, wonderful hot water, great pressure shower with LOTS of towels. A continental breakfast is served as well. New Glarus is known for their bike and hiking trails. An amazing motor cycle ride. Quaint specialty shops and restaurants in New Glarus. Make sure you order a "Spotted Cow" or Naked Lady" two of New Glarus's own beers. What more could you want? Great spot to gather provided in the front of the Motel, with chairs and tables, where you can relax and catch up with friends at the end of your day. The one and only downer is the sound from the highway. With the air conditioner on, no noise :)

Room Tip: There is no pool or restaurant. Though plenty of shops, restaurants and bars in town. "Motel&qu...

My husband and I have stayed here 4 times in the past 10 years and I highly recommend this motel; it is less expensive than the nearby swiss-style motel, but has everything you need (refrig and microwave in the room, clean etc.). The place is very bike friendly and is almost at the start of the Sugar River trail, and close to the Badger State Bike Trail, both of which are wonderful! The owners are friendly and helpful...and can suggest good restaurants, cheese tours etc etc.

My wife and I spent a lovely night here during our visit to New Glarus. The family that owns the motel were very nice and the room was perfect. It was neat and clean. The motel is close to everything in the town and was very quiet. They had chairs outside that were great for spending a few minutes to unwind at the end of the day, and the large cow out front just makes you feel that you where in New Switzerland, at least for a few minutes. We recommend this motel if you are planning on visiting New Glarus.

We have stayed at the Swiss Aire on prior trips to New Glarus. If you're in the area to bike, golf, or go tubing, then we'd recommend staying here. It's very convenient (walking distance) to everything in town. The bike trail is across the road. Two golf courses in the area. Tubing in Albany, WI.

Room Tip: Request room in the front section. We didn't even know there was a back section until our frien...
