“Timber Inn Review”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

This Motel is very homey. The new owners are very friendly and open to others. They seem very caring to their residents that visit. The contiental breakfast is very filling, the quality has gotten better, dough nuts, juices , bagels and jelly, bananas, and coffee. Sometimes the coffee wasn't always filled.! But i managed. The rooms were clean and organized. In some of the motel rooms, things didnt work like the lamps, the shower heads, and the sheets were dirty and stained. I think some of the owners need to knock first before they enter in the rooms though. Privacy is a must. The price is very good. 54 dollars for one person and 60 for two. I enjoy coming here very often.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs , a great view to the lake!

We come up twice a year and have always stayed at the Timber Inn motel. The last trip, I noticed they switched owners. The new owners are nice, but trying to save money in a way that isnt good for the customers. The first night ( they clean rooms themselves) we found a condom,and 2 pills on the floor. She apologized for it, but that was all. The " continental breakfast" Is bread layed out and plain bagels, and coffee. That was it and when they are gone, they are gone, they do not refill it, nor do they restock anything in the room if you stay 2 nights. I miss the old owners :)

A basic hotel, a refreshing break from the typical hotel chains. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, internet worked, view of the lake was great! I opened the lakeside patio door and the front door and let the breeze blow through the room instead of turning on the air conditioner to cool down the room. Haven't been able to do that at a motel in a long time! Continental breakfast was adequate; ice machine was working, didn't need anything more than that!

Room Tip: Neighborhood seemed safe, so I opened the doors to let the breeze blow through. Next time, I'll...

As a truck driver, i have stayed in hotels/motels across the country. I have seen the good the bad and ugly. This place is definitely a good. What a charm, retro at it's best and i hope they don't change a thing. Your room key is a key! not a card. Exceptionally clean and just well maintained.

Timber inn is a charm and a must stay. $48.00+tax

Room Tip: Take a second floor room. Overlooks the lake.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2013

We were intrigued by the "Not as expensive as we look" statement on the outdoor sign. We wanted a change from national motel chains and we were pleasantly surprised...everything was very clean and bedding and towels were in good condition. The free WI-FI offered a very good connection, and the in-room fridge and microwave were very nice to have.

Our downstairs room had a beautiful lake view and was well set off the road and very quiet. One wall had diagonal cedar wood, giving a rustic look which was more attractive than typical plain motel walls. The room was very spacious even with 2 queen beds, a desk, fridge and micro.

The bathroom area was very tight, though. The tiny sink area was outside the toilet/bathtub and right behind the entry door. It's a tight squeeze if you keep the entry door open (there is a screen door which offers cross-ventilation with the sliding door to the patio, which is nice to have). Plenty of lighting made the room very bright. Maybe too much light at the sink area...a lot of heat generated from the strip light above AND the light fixture on the wall.

It would have been nice to sit on the outdoor patio (with table and chairs) but it was raining. The beds were fairly comfortable and the place was very clean. The shabby carpeting at the entry area could use being replaced by tile (easier to keep clean).

However, they lose a LOT of points for the "free continental breakfast"!! I do NOT consider Pop-Tarts, overly-sweetened juice boxes, and packaged sweet rolls as breakfast. To be fair, they did have a tray of bananas, but that was about the only healthy choice. Thankfully I had refrigerated 1/2 of my breakfast from the day before and reheated it in the room microwave. They did have a toaster and microwave in the TINY breakfast area, and it wouldn't be too much trouble to offer bagels, concentrated orange or apple juice, peanut butter, etc. to make breakfast more palatable.

They have brand new owners who are very pleasant.

NOTE: -- For a fantastic meal head to the Harbor View Restaurant and Bar -- just a little north of the Timber Inn Motel.
-- Don't miss the Wisconsin Concrete Park -- just south of town on the west side of the road (watch for brown road signs). A real unique piece of Americana!

The beds are really hard, and the pillows are even harder. Carpets are dirty too. Staff & owner is very nice, that's all I can say. You could hear when the people whohasd rooms upstairs came back. The walls were thin too. You could hear the people next door.
