This hotel is very old and outdated. The carpeting is disgusting and smells of must and mold. The assistant manager working there was kind, professional, helpful and polite. She was wonderful- it's not her fault the hotel is ancient. They decided to close the pool down for routine maintenance on Easter Sunday. The basically ruined my niece and nephews day....

Dear Guest, Thank you for providing us with a review. We appreciate your feedback. We apologize for failing to meet your expectations. The pool water was displaying only 50 percent clarity resulting in us having no other option but to shut it down. We needed to take action immediately because we couldn't see the bottom of the pool at that...

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.

I travel a lot for work and this is by far the worst I have stayed in. Not only does the room not come with a fridge or microwave as stated online, but the pool is not heated and several times we had to go to the front desk to ask for towels. If you have to choose a hotel...

Not a bad place to spend the night for not a lot of money. It did have an indoor pool which I did not see but the room was nice with a king bed, desk and sofa. Also there is a flat screen tv and of course the bathroom with tub shower. Free Breakfast comes with your stay... the usual...

We were in town for a convention, and EconoLodge is decent economy stay. So we booked ahead. Overall impression; the hotel is showing some signs of age and wear, but it was clean and the staff was all very friendly. On the downside it lacks elevators for the second floor (making getting luggage to your room a bit of a...

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 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.

Dear Guest, Thank you for leaving us a review on TripAdvisor. I am sorry to hear that you seem to have had a difficult time finding our hotel. I'm not sure if you used a GPS or MapQuest, but for an unknown reason, both of these will sometimes suggest an alternate, more difficult, route to get to the Econo Lodge....
