First let me say the staff couldnt be nicer. That said, looks like the hotel hasn't been updated since 1980. Carpets are stained and smelly in halls and in our room. The toilet tank in our bathroom literally cracked in two causing gushing water. My husband quickly turned off the water or it would have been a super big mess....

We were catching a Lamers bus trip and decided to stay at the Econo Lodge. It was a perfect location! It was close to Lamers Bus Terminal, close to great eating, shopping and entertainment. The place is quiet, the breakfast room was great, and we totally enjoyed our stay here.

We used to love to stay at this Econo Lodge in Rothschild Wisconsin. Our visit would be twice a year for a week at a time. That's roughly $1000.00 in business from one visitor. This will be our LAST TIME patronizing this hotel. The carpeting on the floors need to be redone. In my room upon entering, we see stains...

Travel to Granite Peak in Wausau, WI is just too far from our home near Great America to go up and back in a single day.

Stayed for 4 days. Needed two beds and they were doubles. The room did not have a fridge and I asked for one as my husband has insulin to be cooled. Have to drive around a mall and it's way back in a corner. Was clean and had wifi. I booked it thru trip advisor and got a good price....

I chose this lodge because of its close proximity to the Central Wisconsin Airport. Despite the road construction, the lodge was easily accessible from Interstate 39. The room itself was neat but the shower wall could use a good scrubbing. There appeared to be heavily discolored (almost black) grout around tile wall where it met the tub. The furniture could...
