The hotel was very nice and clean. The front desk was very helpful and courteously, including the people that cleaned our room. We were very happy we choose this hotel and it was very close to all the places we visited.

We stayed for a Lacrosse showcase over the weekend. I recommend this Inn. It is very clean and we experienced an employee, Mark who works in the breakfast area who demonstrated outstanding service and was very accommodating. He definitely went out of his normal duties to help us out. My hats of to this fine gentleman!

Everything was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the room was so far off the highway, we heard no traffic noise....
