Best Western Resort Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #2 of 6 Hotels in Portage
Reviewed 21 February 2012

we had two rooms for a 12 hour over night before skiing at Cascade. The rooms were clean and staff friendly. The place is nice, but it is an older hotel and a little dated. Overall it was as advertised and a good experience.

Room Tip: we wanted connecting rooms and that is why we stayed there.

we stayed at the BW Portage for a ski weekend at Cascade Mountain. Hotel was fair, nothing over the top, good ski package price, pool area was great plenty of room. Hot tub, sauna, and large pool. Breakfast bar was overall above average, very crowded though. Very close to a Wal-Mart and plenty of fast food places. Steak and seafood resturant next door was excellent. You get two ski passes good for anytime in the year with each night stay. Kids ski free, great deal.

We stayed here Jan 28th-29th and chose the 1 bedroom king suite package with the 2 adult tickets to Cascade Mountain. Our kids had their own bed (pullout couch) and TV, while we had our own bed and TV - perfect for getting them to bed a little earlier than us. Our kids are 12 and under, so they were able to ski free with our 2 adult tickets. Very economical considering lift tickets alone to Cascade would be $98 for the two of us. The hotel was clean and quiet. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and the continental breakfast was standard and very good. We all enjoyed the hot waffles. We also need to shout out to the young man working for Sombreros, who kindly greeted as when we arrived at 6pm, with freshly made tortilla chips and salsa. We unpacked and headed downtown to Sombreros for a quick and inexpensive dinner, including our 2 for 1 margarita coupon he gave us. Muy Bien! Thanks for a great little 1 night winter getaway! I would definitely return and recommend to others.

Room Tip: Can only speak of the king suite - spacious, clean and well equipped.

My husband and I stayed at the Best Western with our 3 year old twins the night before skiing at Cascade. Check-in was very simple and we did not have prior reservations. The room rate was incredibly great! I was so happy to hear how inexpensive it would be to stay for the night. Our room was clean and we were happy with everything. My husband and children did use the pool and hot tub. It was a quick stay - we were only there for 15 hours or so. We did eat breakfast at the hotel - it was your basic continental. We had danishes and waffles. Wal-Mart is super close and that was nice.

I was pleased with the Best Western and would stay again for a basic hotel room.

This is clearly one of the top of the Best Western branded hotels. We took a King Suite with jacuzzi tub, this is a really large space. We would gladly stay in this room again! While our stay was basically off-season for the area, our stay was excellent. The hotel had a well taken care of appearance overall. Our room was in good shape. The bed was comfortable.

The complimentary breakfast, while not a 5-star meal, was more than adequate - hot waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereals, pastry, various bread, coffee, tea, milk, juice and a variety of fruit. The breakfast room was kept well stocked and cleaned.

The pool and hot tub were clean, the pool room was clean, towels were available, we were lucky enough to have the pool room entirely to ourselves when we used it one evening. We personally prefer a slightly cooler hot tub, and a slightly warmer pool, but you really can't set either one to a temp that will completely satisfy everyone as personal taste comes into play, both were at reasonable temperatures. Neither of us enjoy a sauna, but it appeared to be clean and operational.

If we visit this area of Wisconsin again, we will definitely try to get a room in this hotel!

Room Tip: King Suites! Go for it!
