La Quinta Inn Wausau
Ranked #5 of 11 Hotels in Wausau
Reviewed 21 January 2012

We stayed at the La Quinta for three nights January 13 to 16. While this was our first stay at this hotel it was not our first visit to Wausau. We had driven by the hotel many times over the last 8 years; so when the price of $61 a night (with breakfast and a hot tub) came up on hotels.com we felt very comfortable with booking the hotel.

Overall, we were pleasantly surprised. Great hotel, great staff and great service. The hotel has basic, but clean rooms and we found the king mattress to be very comfortable. The breakfast was a little better than average, with plenty of options including waffles. The employee staffing the breakfast bar always went out of her way to make sure you knew how to make your waffle, but most importantly she ensured the bar was always replenished.

Besides price, the pool and hot tub were a major draw for us. After a day on the slopes it is always great to come back to a nice and clean spa with plenty of pool towels.

As for location, you can't beat it. The hotel is located right off of the interstate and only a few minutes away from Granite Peak Ski Area.

If your looking for a simple, inexpensive getaway to Wausau I highly recommend the La Quinta.

We have stayed here every year for the Tomahawk Fall Ride Rally, but this might be our last stay here. Upon getting to our room on the second floor, we noticed that the screen was punched out, they told us that is because people try to smoke in the room and they throw the butts out the window. We could not use the pool the first night, because the heater had gone out and was ice cold, we informed the front desk and they had someone on it right away and we could use it the second night. We noticed that they allowed pets on both floors of the hotel and was told EVERY room was pet friendly. My husband has many allergies and dogs and cats are two of them. He had problems the entire weekend. They told us they even had a pot belly pig stay in one of the rooms. Because of the allergies, we will not be staying there anymore. Most other hotels that are pet friendly that we stayed at, kept pets on lower level and upper levels were pet free. This is not the case here and they did not let us know that pets are allowed in all of the rooms. So if you have any allergies, this is not the place to stay.

Overall the hotel was decent, however the cleaning staff have gotten a litlle lazy. I was moved to a different room when I complained of my bathroom being dirty. The next room's cleanliness wasn't much better. There was urine under the toilet seat along the rim, and dried urine that had run down the outside front of the bowl. The shower/tub was soap scummed and the gripped tub bottom looked very dirty, also there were several hairs in the tub and on toilet and floor. Lamps and top of cooling/heating unit were dusty, and the top head of the bed skirt between the matresses had lots of hair, crumbs, and dust, and needed to be vacummed. There were also crumbs on the carpet under the bed shirt along the bed frame, and the carpet was dusty along the walls. I have stayed in other La Quinta Inn and it was emaculate, so I wasn't expecting this. This location is a little dated with the chocolate brown doors and laminate butcherblock sink counter, but with a little attention to detail could be a diamond in the rough. On a positive note, the staff were pleasant, and the day clerk extremely helpful. The breakfast was wonderful, and although I didn't get a chance to use the pool or hot tub it looked beautiful and enviting.

We spent a weekend in Wausau at La Quinta in February 2010 on the skiing trip. The hotel is located very close to the skiing area, only about 5-10 minutes drive. It has a nice pool and hot tub and during three days of our stay it was never crowded actually on Friday we use both after day of skiing and we had them for ourselves. The front desk staff was very friendly and professional. The room was basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was a big surprise, it was probably one of the best continental breakfasts I ever had. Besides coffee and tea, there were two types of juices, toasts, bagels, muffins, hard boiled eggs, cream cheese, different type of jam, and if that wasn’t enough you could make yourself a tasty waffle.
Overall I would recommend this hotel and definitely will stay again probably next year for another skiing trip.

We stayed at the LaQuinta for the first time. We have stayed at nicer in town and lesser over the last three years. The room, pool, and breakfast areas were clean. The breakfast food was fine. We arrived early and they let us check in. It looks like it was painted not too long ago. The carpets in the two room we had were clean. We never heard any noise from other rooms. We would stay again.
