Great view of the lake

Overall, I like the hotel except the weekend we were visiting my daughter and grandson. The price of hotel was outrageous because of what was going on that weekend

Clean and relaxed atmosphere.

Posted Oct 6, 2017
Pros: Loved the breakfasts and my kids loved the pool!!
Cons: There was a door leading to the outside that I could not initially exit out of. I told staff and it was addressed.
Location: Lake superior is right outside the back door! Fun beach with tubes to use. There were people fishing out back as well. Relaxing atmosphere!
My husband and I brought our 12 yr old son and his friend to the hotel to spend a weekend in Ashland and Bayfield. We had a great time. Our room was clean and comfortable. When we needed extra bedding for a cot we brought along it was no big deal to get more bedding. The kids really enjoyed having such a lovely pool to hang out in on their down time at the hotel and loved the waterslides! It was a nice reward for them after driving around and hiking with adults. The pool was in great condition, clean, and clean towels to use to dry off. The hot tub and splash areas were nie as well. We enjoyed having a nice breakfast each morning! Breakfast was perfect and there was space to actually sit down to enjoy the meal! (many hotels I have stayed at struggle with having adequate space to enjoy the meal) I would absolutely recommend this hotel to others. Especially if you have children. I generally look for hotels that include breakfast since feeding a family can add up costs quickly. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. We had no issues with sound concerns and felt quite secluded in our room each night.

We bought a room with a balcony facing the lake so we could enjoy sitting and admiring the lake and the birches. Next door to us was a cigar smoker who sat on the deck and the wind blew the smoke at us. I believe you are in violation of the state ban on smoking in public facilities. The balcony had three walls and a roof which qualifies as a room by law. I would suggest you review your policy about smoking in the rooms. You could provide a smoking area across the parking lot where the smoke would not infringe upon the guests. At your next inspection you could be fined for your oversight. Otherwise room was nice, breakfast was good, and view was great. Too bad we had to enjoy it indoors with closed windows.

I am so sorry that another guest made your stay less than satisfactory. I will check into the law related to smoking outdoors

Nice hotel at a reasonable price near Apostle Isla

Posted Aug 29, 2017
The room was nice and a good breakfast..except for biscuits and gravy day! The area around the hot tub was disgusting....clumps of grass for three days. We reported it the first day and they said they clean it every Thursday!! Which was three days away!!! The lifeguard opened the door next to the hot tub and all the cold air blew in on us so we wanted it closed...he was NOT happy!!

Dirty and uncomfortable

Posted Aug 21, 2017
Fairly dirty and lack of regular maintenance/cleaning very apparent. Staff was weird and unprofessional. Water park was pretty cool for kiddo but lifeguard on duty was most certainly not interested in guarding any lives. Overall value was worth half what we paid... Will pay double next time to stay in a cabin.

Nice hotel with a beautiful view.

Posted Aug 2, 2017
Really nice hotel for a family with kids. The pool is great for all ages. The breakfast is very good and you can seat outside and enjoy the lake Superior view. During the evening your family can enjoy snores by the campfire at the beach.

Water view, family friendly hotel

Posted Aug 1, 2017
Pros: Location Quiet Free shuttle to Big Top Chetaqua
Cons: Breakfast was a little weak. Not so good biscuits and gravy and mediocre bacon. On the other hand, the selection was nicely varied.
Location: Lots to do in the area. Downtown Ashland with the murals is fascinating. Madeline Island and Big Top Chetaqua are fun. Wonderful parks and beaches.
We had a room with a beautiful view of the Bay. The hotel provided the makings for s'mores every night. It was nice to see families playing the lawn games that were provided and fishing off the pier. Rooms were incredibly quiet and the beds were comfortable.
