“Quiet, Clean, Comfortable”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

Six of us met there for a woman's spa week-end and greatly enjoyed it. The weather was bad so we never left the hotel but had a great time. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, especially the spa staff. We ate at the City Grill in the hotel for both lunch and dinner. At lunch we ordered appetizers which were great and then were too full to order anything else. We had reservations to go somewhere else for dinner but because of the weather we decided to stay and eat there again and were not disappointed. It was a Sat night and there was live music in the bar where we ate, but not so loud that we could converse. The hotel offers a continental breakfast in the morning, which basically was bagels, oatmeal, juices and coffee. This review just doesn't do justice to the atmosphere of the hotel. It is a big step uo from other most chain hotels and yet in the same price range.

My recent stay at the Jefferson St. Inn was terrific! It didn't have that icky smell that most hotels have, and my room was clean and comfortable. Staff was professional, but not friendly. It was quite noisy in the evening, with families in town to ski, but relatively quiet in the morning.

We stayed here a couple of nights while skiing at Granite peak. It is very comfortable and I like that you can walk to different restaurants, they have a cute little main street, some cafe's, and quite some shops. There is a little mall across the street and the hotel itself is connected to different stores. There is an ice skating rink around the corner. The rooms are in great condition and it is very clean. The staff is well informed, they could be a little more warm maybe, but it didn't bother me. The only thing was that it was quite noisy, you can hear your neighbors and you hear ther doors close all the time. Other than that a great stay, and I think I will stay here again if we come back for skiing.

We liked the location of the hotel so much in 2005 that we chose to stay here again more recently. The location is really a great asset to the Jefferson Steeet Inn. The hotel is connected to a mall and past the mall, you can cross the street so you're only outside for a short time and end up in the regular mall in downtown Wausau. The entrance to the first mall is just past the pool, which is somewhat secluded from the rest of the hotel.
Though at first it might be confusing to have to take a specific elevator to get to the pool (from the lobby you must go up then down again), the little trek makes the trip to the pool more exciting, unless you are shivering on the way back up.
The parking garage for guests is conveniently located across the street from the lobby and is accessible from the hotel by a bridge from the second floor.
Breakfast may seem limited compared to a holiday inn express because the only hot options were coffee and hot water for tea or oatmeal, but there were some muffins, granola bars and yogurts. There was just enough variety for us that we could get something we were happy with.

Reviewed 25 December 2012 via mobile

Had a date night away with my husband. The lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The woman at the desk was very friendly in helping us check in. There is only one elevator, so sometimes there is a wait. We had a room on the fourth floor. The hallway decor was okay, and in parts the carpet was bulging up, which seemed like a trip hazard. Our room was huge and decorated well...tons of space. The bathroom was spacious, modern, and equipped with Aveda toiletries! Bed was a different issue...woke up with a backache and the sheets were very course and not comfortable. There was a nice flat screen tv, but unfortunately there were a lot of channels where the signal (dish) wasn't good and it was fuzzy and unclear. This is 2012, and that reception seemed like something you'd experience in the 90's!! Nice continental breakfast in the downstairs restaurant. Overall it was a fine stay, but I had expected more from this level of hotel. Somewhat disappointed.

I have stayed at the Jefferson Street Inn many times since it opened and generally have been satisfied. Recently I stayed two week day evenings and was assigned a room in the back over the dumpsters. At 7:00 AM on Friday morning the trucks came in and made such a noise you had no choice but to get up. My complaint is the hotel was not full why did they put me in this room? When I spoke to the front desk that morning about the situation they just said well sometimes that happens. Also, for as many times as I have stayed at the JSI each time I come they say have you ever stayed with us before? You would think frequent customers would be welcomed back.
