Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities Friendly staff, comfortable rooms and beds, nice breakfast, pet friendly. Very homey. Stayed 1 night in Oct 2019 recommend your hotel to my friends
Great old school hotel with wonderful character. There was no heat in the hotel but I suspect it just hasn’t been turned on yet. The office staff was very approachable and went out of the way for us.
We arrived aftrer a night football game in Green Bay, and some one was waiting for us to quickly check us into a quaint, comfortable and quiet room. Unique decor is reminiscent of small town Wisconsin of yesteryear. lovely. We will be back
This place was great! It is listed as the #8 most haunted hotel in Wisconsin and it definitely has some activity. I would highly recommend staying here. The owner is very friendly. The building looks and feels historic and it is decorated very historic as well. We will be back!

Loved staying in a historic hotel. It still is needing some work to bring it to its former glory, hopefully the owner will continue to restore. It was very peaceful and an easy walk to the lake and other businesses downtown.
