Was horrible. Only stayed a day of my 2 that were reserved. Vending machine sodas were expired. Pool was broken. Room was not very clean. It seemed we were the only ones there. We ended up with an extra kid for the night and instead of giving us a cot they wanted us to rent a second room. Told them we wouldnt rent another room for the kids as young as they were. Said we would just have to leave. They said they would refund our money but haven't seen a credit yet. And I would never rent a spare room for kids under 10...u nuts!!!

Friendly staff. Basic motel 'breakfast'. Comfy mattress. In below zero degree nights, there was not enough heat. Wifi was OK. Fridge worked. Microwave did not. Slightly decrepit but fine for short visit to the area.

I've stayed in Quality Inns before and they're usually pretty nice. Not so here. First, the whole hotel has a very musty smell and feel. The room was very dark and run-down. The carpets were old and dirty and the whole place had paint chipping everywhere. The pool area was ok but again, looked very old with cracks and paint chipping everywhere. The staff made an effort to keep up the breakfast, which was pretty good, but there weren't half enough tables for all the guests trying to eat on a Sunday morning. Wouldn't recommend it, especially for the hefty price. I thought there would at least be a fridge in the room but no. The only good thing was the location--near stores and restaurants so we could spend as little time in the room as possible.

The room was not bad. The bed a little too firm for our liking and the pillows didn't work for us at all. But otherwise it was clean and quiet and we were satisfied with the room. It was close to everything we needed access to. The breakfast was fab! My husband loved the waffles. I don't know what they did to the eggs but I was all over those and I'm not normally an egg person. There was a nice selection of food and drink. And cherry jelly for the toast! I rarely see that so I was excited just for that.

The building was fine. The pool did not look inviting. The staff acted like they were put out by having to put down their cell to wait on me. Funny smell overall. While there are little ads all over about the quality of their beds, mine was uncomfortable & I did not sleep well at all.

We checked in Christmas Eve. The staff was very efficient in checking us in. The hotel is a little dated but seemed very clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean. The only complaint I have is that the heating & cooling fan was very loud. When the heat would kick on during the night, the fan would wake me up all night long.

What a great quiet relaxing hotel to spend the night in, between 2 full days of challenging golf. One night wasn't enough, I wanted to stay a week. The updated room was really spacious, more like a small apt..The king-sized bed was so comfy just like @ home. The room had a flat screen TV, fridge, microwave, radio, iron & board, hairdryer, you name it. The bathroom was updated w/granite, new tub & surround, etc. Shower was great too! The cleanliness was a 5 star & had no odors. Really good free hot continental breakfast that also had REAL orange juice. It's located on the main drag & close to shopping, etc & of course a super good authentic Italian Restaurant. We would stay here again & highly recommend it to others !

It was nice, however, our friends had a refrigerator and microwave in their room for the same price through a different on line service. Somehow I feel we lost out in the deal as the pricing was the same, but the did have more extras than we did.

We arrived close to midnight & the night staff was very friendly, lots of convienent parking. Room was surprisingly much larger than most chain hotels. Beds were comfy, bedding was soft and clean, lots of pillows (4 on each bed). Didn't hear the neighbors at all. While this hotel is older and nothing is modern or sophisticated, we were comfortable. The room wasn't super clean, but the important things were very clean (bathroom & bed) The breakfast far exceeded my expectations: waffles, toast, bagels, english muffins, pastries, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, hot scrambled eggs, sausage, a potato/sausage dish, sugar-free & regular syrup, hardboiled eggs and more. My only disappointments were that there weren't enough electrical outlets (none near the beds as the lamps were sconces hardwired, and many of the other outlets were controlled by a switch & it took us some time to figure how to plug in a cpap, phones, & a camera so that they worked/charged when lights were off). The pool area is small & smelled really chlorinated and needs a lot of paint & updating, but it was good enough to entertain our daughter. The location was convienent to restaurants with a Walgreens next door, & the residential area behind the hotel was quiet and nice. This hotel is not nice enough to please a snob who expects gorgeous luxury. But it is a great deal for average families who want the most for such a low price.

This hotel is the best value for Wisconsin rapids. We stayed a total if 3 nights. The staff was very nice. It is an older building so it does need a little updating but it was very clean and comfortable. There is mo elevator but staff moved us to the first floor due to mobility issues. I have stayed in other hotels in Wisconsin Rapids and this is the best place to stay for overall value.

I made this reservation through hotels.com. I missed my flight and could not get to the motel on the reserved night, but did get there the next. They would not honor the already paid for booking, so I had to pay for an additional night. The Internet service did not work. When someone came up from the front desk, she tried telling me my IE wasn't working. It never works without an Internet connection. The bed was sagged in the middle and rather than two standard size pillows, our beds had four throw pillow size pillows. The walls were so thin that we could not only hear the people talking in the next room, we actually heard the sound of their suitcase zippers! Cannot believe that the former Wilberns Motel has turned into such a dump. I will NEVER stay there again!

"Amazing hotel for the money!"
03/29/15 melsley Chippewa Falls
We stayed at The Fern Hotel last night, March 28. This hotel is very newly painted inside and out. It's fresh and it smells clean...no lingering smoke smell. Our room was large and well kept. Older furniture, but clean. The bed was a king and probably new as it was firm and comfortable and I slept well. The heater in the room made the room warmer than we would have liked for sleeping, but as it was raining and about 37 degrees, heat was better than the alternative. There was a mini fridge in the room and a microwave, internet and a huge TV. The room lacks electrical outlets, so we had to appeal to the front desk to get an extension cord which they gladly provided and even brought it down to our room. We had breakfast in the morning which offered, scrambled eggs, or hard boiled, bacon, biscuits and gravy, juices, yogurt, toast, waffles....anything you could possibly want. The front desk attendant was very helpful, cheerful and accommodating. We will stay in this hotel again when we're in Wis. Rapids. It is not the newest hotel, but the wonderful management and the cleanliness of this facility make up for any lack of electrical outlets in the room which can be credited to the age of the building.

"new owners, great customer service"
03/08/15 Terry B Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin
We just got home from a stay at this hotel. We are choice privelege members and usually stick to choice hotels, but they were booked. This hotel used to be a choice hotel, so we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. We stayed in the double queen bed room, very clean and the beds comfortable. It was exactly like the choice hotels we are used to. I was surprised on how quiet the room was, as it is located off a busy road. The staff is very friendly and accomadating, we came down for breakfast late and the owner told us he would make us fresh eggs...nice! We will be back!

"New owner"
02/22/15 David M Menasha, Wisconsin
I have been staying at this hotel of and on for years for business as the Quality Inn, and was surprised and apprehensive at the name change when checking in this time. Truth be it, the hotel really hasn't changed much- the new owner has been slowly repainting, and the hot tub was being repaired, but the room was clean and warm, the desk people were friendly, and the breakfast was pretty much the same. If I saw any real issues I would have notified my company not to use it again but I didn't have any problems to report and I certainly would. I'll be back.
Overall Rating
"Terrible"
02/18/15 Caleb B
This is the worse hotel I have ever been to, if I could I wouldn't even rate this, I booked the hotel and asked about the pool and room and they didn't say anything about the pool not working or that the pool room heater wasn't working till after we found out and the rooms were not heated so we asked for a refund and only got half back I'll never go back here again unless it gets a lot better.
