Our room was very clean. The decor made us feel like we were at home. The warm breakfast had a great selection and changed each day we were there. The pool and hot tub areas were also very clean. We will definitely stay here again.

I travel a lot for business. Always stay at Hilton or Marriott properties. We were in a pinch during a quick visit to Eagle River and needed a place to stay. I was VERY leery to stay at a Best Western. But it was late at night and we needed a place so we gave it a shot. Wow! This...

The poor review is strictly for the customer service. During check in...

Great place with only one unfortunate disappointment- A front desk clerk with a bad attitude. Other than that, a very clean, warm inviting, accommodating hotel. Nice pool and great breakfast!! Great Northwoods atmosphere.

This is absolutely the best place you can stay in the area! Happy Hour was amazing and provided a true Wisconsin welcome with a tub full of WI beer and crock cheese with crackers! The warmly decorated lobby and second floor sitting area beckons guests to leave their rooms and hang out! The indoor pool (open all night to adults!)...

Great way to see the World Championship Snowmobile Derby. Walking distance or a quick ride on the sled. Great parking for trailers and access to the Eagle River Trails. Workout sore muscles after hitting the trails in the Hot Tub and Pool. Very friendly service, nice breakfast, well maintained and clean.
