Reviewed 4 January 2017

I love the decor. This is a 1980's model hotel with an early 1900's feel. That being said, it could use some tender loving care. There is a funky old smell throughout that smells wet or moldy. The view on the lake side is gorgeous and well worth the extra few bucks. There is construction in the lobby and I...

It looks so nice and grand, but when you walk in you notice that it is not what you think. This is not a old hotel with real character but it is alright. my lake view that I paid extra for??? It was really just a view of the holding sands for winter and back water.

We liked staying here. Is an updated older hotel. Love the feel and theme. We had a larger suite that was very comfortable and roomy. Staff was friendly, breakfast was fine. Had drinks in bar that had a nice feel. good sitting room with view of lake. Will definitely stay here again.

Got placed on third floor with limited heat. Room was ice cold upon arrival. Took forever to get the room warm. Bed was squeaky, shower faucet was leaking, out dated. And the topper, barking dog next door. Unbelievable.

Although a grand presence in Ashland, the hotel is very quaint and homey. It has all the amenities plus a great view of the Great Lake! It was too cold to go outside, but I was very impressed by the restaurant. Lake Superior whitefish...and the best Wisconsin Mac n' Cheese. I'll definitely return!

I love this hotel. It's our favorite and a close walk to the 2nd Street Bistro, our favorite Ashland eatery! The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the ambiance is fantastic, the view is the best, and I really like the breakfasts!

Very neat hotel with a replicated historic feel, that just wasn't quite there though.. Still an OK hotel and service was great, just expected more from a property that has such class from the exterior. Bed was comfy and nice views of the lake!

Quaint hotel, very well maintained, nicely located near downtown so you can take a decent walk down main street and then up the board walk along the Bay. You have the option of rooms overlooking Chequamegon Bay. Great staff and a nice breakfast on all accounts. Always hot coffee and cookies waiting for you 24 hours a day. Decent parking...

Stayed one night in October. Overall, it's a great hotel. Excellent location, well-appointed rooms and lobby, excellent restaurant on site, friendly staff, good breakfast. We've stayed there before, but this was the first time since it became part of the Best Western chain. We had no WiFi access. Staff told us that Apple products don't work on the WiFi. Really?...
