Positive Reviews

Good customer service experienced

According to many travelers, the welcoming, obliging and friendly members of staff provided a quick and easy check-in. Those traveling with their pet pooches appreciated the pet-friendly policy.

Roadside location as convenient

Reviewers were keen on this property’s location just off US Route 12 and a short drive from highway I-94 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The city center was conveniently a short drive away and motorists said it was also easy to get to the airport, beauty spots, golf courses and shopping malls. Visitors to the university said the location was highly convenient for them as the campus was so close by. The proximity of dining options, gas stations and bus stops was another bonus.

Basic, affordable rooms were clean and comfy

The rooms were said to be basic but suitably clean and comfy for a short stay on a budget, according to many visitors. There was praise for the fairly reliable free Wi-Fi network and free cable TV in the rooms. Those prioritizing affordability appreciated the usually inexpensive room rates for the area. Many said they got a fair amount of bang for their buck.

Negative Reviews

No breakfast

Some visitors expressed disappointment that there was no breakfast other than free morning coffee provided at this budget motel.

Minor maintenance and cleanliness issues

Critics occasionally took issue with cleanliness and maintenance standards. Cleanliness grumbles focused on insufficiently cleaned bathrooms in some of the rooms. Meanwhile, maintenance issues reported included dated decor, tired-looking items of furniture, aging carpets, slow-draining water and malfunctioning locks in several rooms.

Noises and smells were a nuisance

Noise from adjacent rooms sometimes traveled easily through thin walls, causing an occasional nuisance for several light sleepers. Elsewhere, musty odors and lingering smoky smells were off-putting for guests staying in certain parts of the property.
