This is a pretty out of the way place, but I needed to stay somewhere and ended up here. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. The front desk staff were friendly (almost too cheerful for the time of night!) and the room was well appointed and clean. The pool area looked pretty cool and if I were traveling with my kids,...

I arrived at midnight and the staff there were nice. There was a hooka at the front desk and the whole place smelled odd like someone was cooking something weird. The bed was uncomfortable and the rooms needed to be updated. The room was very large though and the tv and air conditioner worked very well. I was sad that...

I was a bit apprehensive about my stay based on the number of negative reviews. I would take issue with most of these reviews, as I found the place to be clean and well maintained. The staff was very courteous and helpful. Is it as nice as higher end places I've stayed? Of course not. It's a small operation in...

We stayed here for a family wedding June 19 and 20 2015. Rooms were nice and big. Pool was good for grandkids, Only thing you could tell this was a family owned hotel. They tried to save money every way imaginable! Our fridge was not plugged in when we got there. No PB at breakfast and the cream cheese was...

We came here after another lodging place "lost" our reservation. AmeriVu was fine--10:30pm last-minute check-in, 9:30am checkout. The mini-fridge was super loud but the rest of the hotel seemed quiet. We didn't eat breakfast or swim in the pool, but the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. $139 + tax seemed like a lot for the area, but...

After reading the reviews, I now know why it's a 2 star hotel. We booked because the best western was full in Spooner. Lobby was decent- cute northern charm. The pool murky- but has slides for the family. The Hot Tub was a luke warm tub- gross.Hotel room= GROSS. Beds hard as a rock, there was a giant hole where...

Screaming manager. Called us bigots. Lied about rooms being booked except for first floor in the loudest place. There were only 4 cars in the lot. We asked for a handicapped room for our grand child who has cerebral palsy. No such thing there according to him. We asked about the hotel chain management number so we could tell them...

Arrived and was sent to a room that the heat had not been turned on. Even after turning on the heat, it took hours to feel some warmth. Was still very cold. The beds were very uncomfortable and the room was not well cleaned. Breakfast was cold cereal. Will never stay again. The total cost also had a hidden extra...

Clean rooms, soft towels, china cups for coffee and most of all the nicest people operating the hotel. Great pool area for the kids and...even adults are welcome in the water. Don't be shy about asking for extras! The couple managing this delightful holiday hotel will bend over backwards to help you. Shell Lake is a very special spot with...

The hotel was amazing. The pool area was fantastic. Our children had a blast. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that would be staying in the area. I would definately book here again. Thank you so much for a wonderful 2 days.
