A very nice old fancy hotel , good place , I would come back

Ok hotel for he age of it. Breakfast wasn’t the best although there was quite a large selection. Price was very high for the quality overall.

Was very happy this was our home base for visiting Bayfield and the Apostle Islands. The restaurant and bar were excellent. The food was great and our waitress and bartenders were even better. Very nice views.

Beautiful views, perfect downtown location,friendly staff.

With the Covid 19 virus pandemic the staff was very professional and responsible in their CDC safety practices. My travel was necessary and I am glad that their usual services are shut down.

Beautiful place! Very Clean, Rooms were great! Very Friendly Staff and the Chequamegon Grill was Amazing! Very Refreshing!

History, Decor, Breakfast, although real eggs should have been used. The plumbing was noisy, could use some work.

Probably the nicest hotel for the money I’ve ever stayed in.

Very nice hotel. Very affordable. I would go back if i were in the area.

This was a decent home base for the Birkie. They set up a wax room and served breakfast early enough that even elites and Wave 1 skiers had time to eat before the race. Nice pool. The Lake views from verandas would be lovely in summer.

Bad things: 1. We had our “do not disturb” sign on and the housekeeper started knocking on the door at 0900 for housekeeping. 2. They were replacing the carpet on the 3rd floor so we couldn’t even sleep pass 0830 because all the loud noise in front of our room. 3. Our second night there, the electronic lock from our door wasn’t working so we got locked out of our room with all our personal items in there. We had to wait over an hr to get back inside our room and then we weren’t able to leave the room cause the lock wasn’t working. We had to sleep with the door unlocked for two nights. 4. The general manager was really lazy about it and didn’t do anything to help. We didn’t get anything for dealing with this bad experience. 5. The person at the desk, during the check out process, was talking over the phone with her friends and scratching her toes in front of everybody. Good things: 1. Great location 2. Amazing food at the restaurant. 3. Big rooms.

Stayed here instead of a motel because we thought we'd get a decent bed and pillows. When we complained, the woman at the front desk gave us the excuse that it's a bottom tier Best Western and the managers were only allowed to spend so much. Basically, she could have cared less about our feedback. Why are they charging top tier prices for a bottom tier hotel? It's really dated. On top of it, the windows were filthy.

Pleasant staff, good variety of food for breakfast and was well prepared. Happy stay.

It was good, could eat at the hotel.The bathrooms need a little more care, they ran out of shampoo.

It is very nice to have a good restaurant right in the hotel. The breakfast is very good too.

Nice hotel, great location. The hotel is in need of a deep cleaning, especially the Windows and elevator. For the amount of money I paid per night, I would expect more.

Thanks for your feedback. It would be helpful to know what specifically "wasn't the best" about breakfast so we can alter our preparation or reinforce training.
