The room was clean and comfortable, but the property as a whole was a little sad. It was a Saturday evening and the dining room and bar were closed. The next morning the dining room was still closed for breakfast.

Most everything was outstanding with the exception of the shower. At 6 ft 1 in, the shower was too low and lacked water pressure. The hotel amenities looked very inviting, but my trip did not allow me to take advantage of them. I will stay here again on my next visit to the area.

The maintenance guys were friendly but management staff were HORRIBLE . She moved me to a different room and same problem - heater was not working. Don’t stay at this Hotel

Close to downtown and the event we were in town for. Comfortable bed and convenient room set up. Clean though hallways and elevator highly smelled of room deodorizer. Poor lighting in room. Dated decor and furnishings. Outdoor walk in ramped area blocked by parked cars causing hazard to entry or danger in event of fire or other emergency. Neither Manager nor assistant on site to talk to.

The front desk person was pleasant. This hotel has really gone down hill. If you knew this place when it was at it's height, seeing it now would make you cry. One restaurant with snacks only and it's partitioned off with storage. The hotel is tired and in disrepair. The hot tub was closed, the sauna was closed and had been for some time. The bathroom had mold on the ceiling, they are tired too and in need of an update. A bunch of unused spaces in this once bustling hotel. For Wisconsin Rapids, you should never pay $120 for a "fair" property, it's livable but certainly not worth this in this small community. The Cobblestone Inn is nicer and it includes breakfast, this property does not. Very sad.
