“Becoming a home away from home”
Reviewed 31 January 2012

My wife and I stayed here for one night on Saturday January 28th, 2012. This is our 5th stay at the hotel. I posted a review after our 4th stay (posted below). Thankfully everything is still very nice at this location. The young lady that checked us Saturday evening was very nice. The first room that was assigned to us smelled like cigarette smoke. All rooms are supposed to be non-smoking. I don't blame the hotel for this. I blame the previous occupant. We were given a bigger and nicer room which was very nice.

The bed was very comfortable. The breakfast area is huge with a decent selection of foods to choose from. The coffee was tasty. The staff in the morning is also very good.

We like the outdoor play areas around Wausau so we stay there a few times a year. We'll be back!

Room Tip: The King Suite is huge, get it if you can!

We have stayed at this Econo Lodge twice and have been pleased each time. The staff is helpful and the facilities are just fine. I have read other people's reviews on here and am surprised by their negative impressions. Recall that this is an Econo Lodge and offers a reasonable price for a clean room, hot shower, and continental breakfast in the morning. It is just what we need when we are up that way to go skiing!

This one is way on the south end of Wausau (I believe it is technically in Rothschild.) This was a Comfort Inn until around 2010, when it became an Econo Lodge. It probably does fit the mold of the Econo Lodge better - it's a little older and starting to show a bit of wear. Staff is very friendly, and check in isn't an issue. The rooms are serviceability, lots of room, decent TV, clean bathrooms, just starting to show their age. Breakfast in the morning is standard - make your own waffles, or danish/donut type food. Nothing too spectacular, and if you share the hotel with a traveling team (which seems to happen to us all the time), it can be a long painful wait to make something. Location is pretty good, as you are in walking distance to a grocery store and Arbys. Some of the newer places in the area have enticed us with a newer hotel and better breakfast for the same price.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. We try to offer a good variety of breakfast selections and always provide more than just the basic Econo Lodge Hotel Brand requirements with what we all have to offer. We hope to continue improving our hotel with renovations as the year progresses, and we would love for you to stay with us again in the future!

Stayed here for one night in October 2011 when taking an early morning flight from entral Wisconsin airport. Room was a reasonable value, clean but older. There are several fast food places near by as well as shopping at Cedar Creek Mall. Breakfast was sparce. There is no shuttle to the airport and a taxi ride is a ridiculous $30.

We stayed at this location on Sunday, September 11, 2011. We redeemed our Choice Prilvileges points for two rooms for one night. The check-in process was fine, and the desk clerk Jessica was very helpful. She was polite, and even gave me one of her old cell phone chargers when I noticed that I had left mine at home.

The rooms were outstanding. One of our rooms was a king sized suite with a jacuzzi in it. The room was the size of an apartment!!! Comfortable bed, frog and micro, table with four chairs, and a comfortable couch. The other room had two queen sizeds beds, frig and micro, and very comfortbale. The selection of TV channels is excellent. It was very clean, and did not have "that low-priced motel smell" that many have. Great night was had been all!

Stayed here after my son's graduation. Flew out of CWA so this hotel was conveniently located to airport. Close to shopping and movies and Water park. Nice courtyard. Walking distance from fun The Bar also. New Wisconsin law prohibits smoking but a courtyard if you desire to smoke. Friendly staff and some rooms with pull out couches. Will stay here again.
