“Nice motel, reasonable rates”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

My husband and I just returned from our 3 night stay at America's Best Value Inn in Rhinelander. This was the first time staying there and we were overall mostly pleased with our choice. The room was very nice and clean, nicely furnished and was certainly more than we expected for such a reasonable rate. We only had one little issue with this motel. We spent our first night there, and the next morning we left the room and were gone from 9am to 4pm. When we returned to the room, we found that housekeeping never bothered to come in and give us a fresh supply of towels or empty trash cans or straighten up the room. We did NOT have a do not disturb sign on the door. My husband had to go to the front desk, and get fresh towels. No problem after the second night and our room was nicely cleaned. Our room was equipped with a nice size fridge, microwave and coffeemaker.
The bathroom was adequate, tub was clean and not too small with good water pressure. Sink was a little short on counter space. We had a queen bed which was comfortable and plenty of soft pillows. Continental breakfast was good, but very basic. Make your own waffles, toast, English muffins, donuts, muffins and coffee cake. Just a couple of varieties of dry cereal, coffee, milk, juice, yogurt, fruit and hard-boiled eggs. Just two or three tables to eat at, so we brought the food back to our room.
Also, the motel was sandwiched between a bakery thrift store and parking lot on one side and a gas station on the other, but was really nice and quiet.
We would stay there again because even though we had one minor problem, it was basically a nice place to spend a few nights. The staff was friendly and they really did have great rates compared to nearby motels.

Room Tip: We asked for a second floor room, river side (because we wanted a river view). We did get a second...

Thank you for choosing Americas Best Value Inn on your recent visit to Rhinelander. I’m glad you were pleased with your choice. I was disappointed to hear that your room was not cleaned after your first night here. I have discussed this with the housekeeper that was responsible for this oversight. I can assure you that this will not happen again. I agree with you, we have a very clean and quiet property for a reasonable price. I couldn’t ask for a more helpful and friendly staff. We all look forward to seeing you again on your next visit to Rhinelander.

This is a comfortable, clean two-story motel with a friendly staff and reasonable rates, situated on the bank of the Wisconsin River. Rooms open onto interior hallways. The woods are very close to the building, and the window of our ground floor double-queen room looked right out into trees, where we heard song birds in the morning—a pleasant change from what one usually sees outside a motel. (This would only be true on one side of the motel, though. The other side must look out onto the parking lot.) There are lawn chairs behind the motel where one can sit beside the river and watch the water fowl. Our room was clean and perfectly adequate for the price, but as I have noticed at other America’s Best Value Inns, it was over-furnished and a little cramped. It was nice to have a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, desk, chairs, and a long wooden built-in with drawers, but this left only narrow spaces for getting between the furniture and the beds. This is true even without a closet (instead there is a hat and coat rack in one corner.) The bath, with a plastic tub-shower, is also quite small, but it was adequate. The beds are comfortable, and there are good –quality linens and towels. Hot water is prompt and plentiful. There is free wi-fi with dependable signal. In the lobby there is also a complimentary computer station with internet access and printer. The motel offers a pass to an off-site fitness center if you want to work out. Complimentary breakfast includes cereals, fruit, pastries, yogurt, toast and use of a waffle iron. There are some negatives to the place. Having praised the location of the motel, it is important also to note that during the summer the proximity to the river also means increased proximity to North Woods mosquitoes. This is not a problem inside, but especially in the evening they swarm the parking lot and the riverside lawn. After getting into the car, we typically spent a few minutes before driving away, in order to swat the mosquitoes that had come in with us. A spray can of insect repellent is recommended during summer months. Another annoyance is the noise transference from floors to ceilings below. We were awakened at 1:00 a.m. by late arrivals in the room above us, who, from the sound of it, mistook the floor for a trampoline. Asking for a room on the upper floor would alleviate this potential problem. A map in the lobby will direct you to Rhinelander’s lively and well-kept downtown area, which is definitely worth a visit. On Brown Street in particular there are several nice eateries and even venues with live music. We had excellent walleye, cedar-planked whitefish and Wisconsin craft brews at the Rhinelander Café and Pub. It was downtown that we also learned about the hodag, the mystical forest creature that has become Rhinelander’s mascot. There are hodag statues all over town. All in all our visit to Rhinelander was very pleasant, and despite a couple of negative aspects to America’s Best Value Inn, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Some rooms on the side of the motel farthest from the parking lot offer pleasant woodland views. Dow...

Thank you for your review. It means so much to our staff that you let us know you enjoyed your visit - it’s everything we work for. I’m happy you appreciated all of the amenities and enjoyed the picnic area in back by the Wisconsin River. The mosquitoes have been a bit of a problem for everyone up here in the northwoods this year. Fortunately, the dragon flies have returned and taken care of most of that problem for us. Next time you stay with us we’ll be happy to give you a room on the second floor to minimize the noise transference problem you experienced. Once again, thank you so much for your comments. We value and appreciate your kind words and your business, and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

We came up for Cranberry Feast in Eagle River the first weekend of October and wanted a fairly reasonable place to stay. We have never stayed at this chain before and were very pleased. It is very clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is a bit small, just a few tables. They have a waffle machine and I always find those waffles are the best!

There is a little river that runs through the back of the property. They have a firepit and chairs out back. If it had not been a rainy weekend when we came, it would have been relaxing to sit by a fire.

We would definitely stay here again. Their rates are great!

First of all, thank you for writing a review about your recent stay Americas Best Value Inn in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
As accurately stated in your review, our staff is truly friendly and helpful and goes out of their way to ensure you receive the type of service that will make you want to return.
You're right, the addition of waffles to our breakfast was a great improvement. We do have future plans to relocate and expand our breakfast room.
Hopefully when you return the weather will cooperate and you'll be able to relax just out our back door by the Wisconsin River. It is a very beautiful and quiet place to unwind.
Thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

We stayed here in August 2013 and were so pleasantly surprised by the high quality. I had never stayed at this chain before and usually we stay at Hampton Inns or hotels of that style (mainly because we want a pool.) But this night we did not need a pool and just needed a place to sleep. The room was the cleanest and one of the most comfortable that I've stayed in recently. We were nervous because the price was so low and it was a "lower-end" chain, but I could not have been happier. Can I say again how fresh and clean everything was? Also, the breakfast was great.
The other unexpected item was that the hotel is on a little river going through town and it has a nice open lawn with lawn chairs, a picnic table and a bonfire pit, which they even said they would start a bonfire for us, but we had other plans. Never have I had a nice backyard in a hotel! This was perfect! If your kids don't need a pool, this is a perfect location and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for one facing the woods instead of the parking lot. (But the parking lot was not noisy nor was...

Everything was clean, the setting on the WI river and the outdoor space to gather was a pleasant surprise and very nice. It felt like family there. I have stayed at other ABVI's around the country, but none as nice as THIS!

Friendly and clean with large rooms. Great setting on the river nice area for a campfire. Best sleep I have ever had in a hotel. Outside of the hotel looks dated but, don't judge till you go inside. Hot waffles for breakfast could not ask for more.

Room Tip: Bring firewood and fishing pole
