“Eh, it's okay”
Reviewed 10 September 2011

Pretty nice pool, beds are pretty comfortable, but definitely a bare bones hotel. Rooms and decor are pretty antiquated. Free continental breakfast that was alright, nothing extravagant about this place. If you're just looking for a place to lay your head and nothing else, this place should do just fine.

(As the review title says) this was our fourth time staying at the Midway BW in Wausau. The location is great, easy on, easy off. It is very close to restaurants. The hotel is clean and a good deal. Breakfast is always great. Fresh fruit, hot eggs. The corned beef they serve is great when they have it.

The only downside this time was being poolside. And no fault of the hotel's, as usual, other patrons ruined our trip. Screaming children in the pool. Until 11pm. Granted, they have as much of a right to use the hotel facilities as we do to have peace and quiet. Being early risers, we are usually asleep by 9pm, and the two hours of racket was awful. Next time I'll be sure to not stay poolside. We made sure to exit our room loudly at 6am.

Also, in their in-room informational folder, it states that long distance calls come with "no long distance access charge". Yet, the four calls I made from the room (three local) came to $11. Next time I'll use my cell phone. That was a really stupid charge!

Room Tip: Don't stay poolside unless you plan on being the folks who let their children scream until 11pm.

Thank you for your commitment to Best Western Midway Hotel. I am sorry other guests were an inconvenience during your stay. Noise from the pool area usually is not an issue for our guests, but occasionally someone will get extra rambunctious in the pool area. I am sorry if there was an error in telephone charges; I will check into that immediately. I hope we can be of service in the future. Thank you again.

As we were traveling with kids and family, we stayed poolside. We enjoy the pool area and with little children 5 and 3, we do not have to worry them. The Midway is the old style atrium center pool area. If you are expecting ultra modern, go elsewhere. However, if you like a clean room, friendly staff, new beds and great breakfast for a great value, stay here. Have been coming for the past 3 years when visiting family. The kids love it.

We arrived in Wausau after a very long day driving from central Indiana. We got off the Interstate to look at a map & found with the construction the entrance back to the Interstate was closed. We called the hotel to ask for "go-around" directions to the property. Quite surprised when Rachel at the front desk stayed on the phone with us for 15 minutes giving turn-by-turn (complete with landmarks) directions to the property. Could not have asked for better customer service! A/C was working fine for us -- actually had to turn it off during the night because it was too cold. Did leak a bit though onto the carpet. B'fast was another pleasant surprise. Good selection & good food.

We booked a room at the Best Western Midway because it was a convenient stop on our journey between Sturgeon Bay and Shell Lake in Wisconsin. The room price was very low, so we were not expecting much. Imagine our surprise to find a lovely hotel room, unbelievable pool area, and great breakfast room and wonderful free breakfast. We were blown away by the hotel and the service.

Stayed here for a night after the airshow in Oshkosh before heading home. Difficult to find the usual big city brands in central wisconsin, so went with the Midway Hotel. A pretty old property of which there seem to be many similar designs in WI and IL. Nice large atrium with pool and hottub. No time to use them however, just sleep and leave in the am. Room has been renovated very nicely, attractive and comfortable. Wanted to open the window and get fresh air but the highway noise was just too great. There was a breakfast included with the stay and I didn't expect much more than a box of donuts in the lobby. Was I ever wrong, we were told to help ourselves to the buffet in the restaurant that had eggs, bacon, fried potatoes, waffles, and fruit. One of the best and most complete hotel breakfasts I have ever had. Considering everything, it was a fantastic bargain. Took a short drive through town before departing, pretty nice place.

I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for staying with the world's largest hotel chain and for your compliments about the hot breakfast buffet and the property. We are constantly making updates to our historic and memorable property, I'm glad you enjoyed the updates. A secret/suggestion for the next time you stay, if you like to have your window open and avoid traffic noise, ask for a room on the parking lot side of the hotel. Hope to see you again soon!
