“Nice place to stay in Pepin”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

We stayed here as a family of 4 in the end room. Very basic, but clean and comfortable. We were visiting friends who had a sail boat in the marina, so the room was a place to shower and sleep. We were comfortable and everything in our room worked just fine. The owner was very nice and made us feel welcomed. Dinner that night a place across the street that was mainly outdoor dining. We had pizza which was excellent. Next time we are Pepin we will stay here without hesitation.

Was in town to visit the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum which is across the street. The lady in charge was very friendly. The room was clean and decorated nicely. Nothing fancy, but the décor went perfectly with the "Laura Ingalls" part of our vacation. Would stay here again. Only complaint that I would have is that the advertised free Wi-Fi was not available. Thankfully, I had packed a mobile hotspot just in case

This was such a wonderful little motel in Pepin for three couples to stay for a night as we traveled the Great River Road on motorcycles. I would recommend it to anyone as the lady in charge that afternoon was so very helpful and the rooms were very so nice and very comfortable. A definite stay for us again!

We stayed here in late May. The clerk kept the office open just long enough to register us and another woman, then closed for the night at about 6:00 PM. The office was still closed the next morning, around 9:00 AM, when my husband tried to go and ask a question. Maybe someone was hiding in there, but we saw no signs of life. :-)

Our room (the one on the end across the street from the laundromat) was fairly spacious and very clean and our beds were comfortable. The bathroom door didn't lock, though, or really close properly.

The clerk had told us the free wi-fi was an open connection and that we didn't need a password. That was not the case; all we could find when we tried to get online were secure connections. Maybe she had turned it off when she left for the night - I don't know since no one was around to help.

Room Tip: Double check on the wi-fi!

The price is right but the advertised deal does not. No phone, wireless "broke" (trying to find someone to fix it), and the bed was horrible. WE STAYED IN 2.
btw: this is a drive up to the door motel.

We had the second room from the left. The room was very nice and clean. For a basic motel, it was much nicer than expected. It was also quiet, and everything worked well inside. Would stay there again.

I stayed a night on short notice when a plumbing problem at our cabin a few miles away chased us away for a night until it was fixed. This is a 7-unit old-style motel. The manager was friendly and sympathetic; it was a slack time of year (weeknight in March) so only two of the seven rooms were occupied. Both the room and the bathroom were small and plainly furnished but very clean. The bed was standard, not plush but acceptable. The "Amish" furnishings were mainly of the knick-knack variety, but helped make the room comfortable. Although it is on the main street/state highway in town (no view of anything worth looking at), at least in March not much is going on and it was quiet for sleeping. Parking is right at your door. It IS right across the road from the little Laura Ingalls Wilder museum in town in a former railroad station (which has been moved to this location).

One tip: in our shower, the control knob was plumbed the opposite of normal -- when turned you come to the hot water first, THEN the cold water. It took me a while to figure that out, so I'm including it here. A humorous little quirk typical of this type of motel.

In sum: don't expect fancy, but it is clean and comfortable and the price was right ($65+tax), it is conveniently located. And it IS the only motel in the little village of Pepin.

Room Tip: The rooms are all in a row, if you choose an end one you'll have someone on only one side of you...
