Friends and I meet in Wausau every year for a long weekend and try different hotels. This was our first and last time at Best Western Midway. The gentleman we checked in with was not very friendly - we were there on a fun, girls weekend and he was unfriendly and gruff. When we asked if we could have a room near the pool, he just kept telling us in a very gruff way that we had "priceline" rooms. It really made us feel like we were low lifes since we had a priceline room with how he was talking to us. Oh well. We first were given a room on the second floor and were staying for 4 nights...hauling a larger suitcase up a flight of steep stairs is not easy. Especially when you have to stop and try to open the secure doors (wiht your room key), hold one open and get around. Also, I was traveling with my mom who is older and the stairs were not kind on her ankle or knees. The hall ways are super hot and the temps are not regulated at all. When we finally got inside the room we were disappointed by the smell of an old smokers room. The room is assigned "non-smoking" but must have been a smoking room in years past. The room was also not really clean. There were dusty areas, old shower tiles that looked like they needed a good scrub, and old mini fridges that didn't really keep stuff cold. Later that evening we found how thin the walls are...our room was close to the highway and the noise from it kept waking each of us up. It was very disruptive. We got a room change the next day to a first floor away from the highway but found that the walls are thin. People above sound like they are stomping, you can hear people in the hall, you can hear people in rooms next door talking. Not a very relaxing atmosphere to sleep in. The breakfast was not as good as other hotels in the area. Took 3 phone calls to get towels. Overall, very very disappointed. Can't not figure out how this is a 3 star hotel!!
