The front desk ladies (check in and out) were very nice and helpful. The hotel was very clean. The beds comfortable. there was a coffee maker in the room but no coffee!!! The hotel was full with girls BB teams, I figured there would be alot of noise and door slaming...... But I was wrong, this group was very quited....

Pulled back the sheets and found a dead bug on the pillow! Cobwebs on the lights and a damn hanger stuck on the curtain rod. We took the dead bug down to the front desk and made them change all bedding right down to the mattress pads. Even the next day, there still were cobwebs on the lights. We have...

The hotel was former super 8. We used AAA discount for fair price stay. Whirlpool was hot and clean. Hotel needs updating with burnt out fixtures and bug piles inside lenses. King bed was nice. Room was clean. Shower head was stuck at solid stream and maintain staff not in on Saturday to replace it. Adequate parking. Easy access from...

Booked a last minute stayed bike trip for the Tomahawk Color Ride and only because every other hotel within a 25 mile radius sells out a year in advance, we wound up in Merrill at the Badger motel for two nights. Short and sweet..... filthy! Stains on the carpets everywhere in the motel and god knows what has been spilled...

I stayed the night at Badger Inn on Thursday because I was attending a funeral on Friday! The whole haul wreaked of SKUNK and the front desk lady would not let me switch. I even offered to pay the difference. Worst Customer Service EVER! I asked to speak with the manager and he refused when she called him! And he...

Very dated as you would expect a small town older hotel to be. Overall thought it was clean and worked for my needs. I would use again. Didn't get an opportunity for the pool, but did notice it was inside. Beds were not the most comfortable, but again, it suited my immediate needs.

Outdated furnishings. Boasted of a whirlpool in room, but when we were in it it had nasty nasty stuff in the water, maybe from cleaners and sponges?? We only filled it and did not enter due to water. Very busy due to a sporting event in town, could have used more staff, only one person working. (besides at the bar,...

Very nice place although the decor is a bit set in the 80's. But it is very clean. Young man named Jordan at the front desk was very helpful. We thought he was the new manager and was very surprised he was not. We will be back!
