“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

We were very impressed by the Jefferson Stree Inn. Our room was spacious, loved the jetted tub after a long day of skiing, the fireplace was a nice touch, and the staff were all very friendly. Nearby dining options were good. We had great massages at the spa. We would definately recommend the Jefferson Street Inn to everyone.

Overall, we were really impressed with the Jefferson Inn. It was a nice place and friendly staff. Good location, small pool. Nice hot tub. Breakfast could have had some hot foods like waffle machines or something more. Close to Granite Peak and shopping. Nice to have fridge in room, but shouldn't be stocked with liquor since minors were unattended in room at times. Had to empty the fridge before we could use it to store your food and drinks in it that we brought for your stay.

The Jefferson Street Inn is the only place we stay when we come to Wausau to ski at Granite Peak. The rooms are updated and clean. The restaurant is a bonus and the parking is convenient. The staff is what makes the Jefferson Street Inn absolutely fantastic!

Came into town for a weekend of skiing and couldn't have been more pleased with our stay. It was a short, easy drive to Granite Peak and much nicer than a low end or mid range chain hotel would've been. The hotel itself was very nice. Free parking in a covered garage was very much appreciated as it was a snowy weekend, and the free breakfast was excellent and quite a surprise -- and made it an even better value. Breakfast wasn't fancy -- bagels, muffins, yogurt, parfaits, oatmeal, fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, bottled orange juice, bottled water, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate, but it was more than adequate for us. The granola bars and breakfast bars that we were encouraged to take with while we went skiing were a nice plus. We had 4 people in our room with two queen beds and there was plenty of space. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if I go back and would highly recommend it.

This was our third stay and the employees have always been friendly and welcoming. The room is well appointed and I love the Aveda products in the bathroom. The only downside was the mattress should be changed out in the room we were in. Clearly the majority of visitors are single as the mattress clearly sank towards the middle and I got very little sleep trying to balance on the edge of the bed!

Stayed at the Jefferson Street Inn on New Years night 2013. Made reservation a few days prior and checked in around 7pm that night. Had a nice room, clean, and found it very accommodating. Breakfast was quite a bit bigger than I expected but not sure if that was a New Years day exception.

Location was great, had dinner and drinks in the hotel bar, City Grill. Great steak and would also recommend the Salmon. Did not have reservations but the hostess set us up with a great bar table by the entertainment. Reservations would have been a smart move so if there on a weekend may want to call the restaurant ahead of time.

Over all the hotel is quite nice, we enjoyed the location and our time there. We had a 1 bedroom suite and it was quite large, worked perfect for our group of 4 (we brought our own portable bed). The fireplaces are fake but they still kinda look like a real one.
The BREAKFAST IS HORRIBLE!!! I have had more to choose from for breakfast at lower star hotels such as Quality Inn, Days Inn, or Comfort Inn. The breakfast is in their attached restaurant which is a nice space but there was very little selection for food, and not one warm item. Our group of 10 ate somewhere else the 2nd morning.
