Motel 6 Wausau, Wausau
I've stayed at this hotel before with no problems. When I checked in this time the initial room that I was in had stuff still in the toilet that wouldn't flush and there was dried sticky stuff on the bathroom floor as well as handprints on the headboard and greasy stuff on the table. Obviously not cleaned well with just a quick look around. Nobody answered when I called down to the lobby so I had to go down there. When I did, I found out there was nobody to fix the toilet so I was given a different (much smaller) room on the 1st floor (I had requested a 2nd floor room initially). Not a great start. The second room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and it was exactly what I had expected from my previous stays after the rocky start.

Bare Bones but OK
Normal inexpensive motel. No coffee maker, no refrigerator or microwave, or carpeting. Bare bones, but a comfortable enough bed and clean enough. Good location near to old downtown Wausau and the river drive parks.

A fair priced overnight stay with nearby shopping
When we checked in, our room's AC did not work. The front desk staffer, Kim, immediately took charge, found a replacement room and generously helped us relocate our belongings. She was terrific. We agreed to take a lesser room simply to have a working AC. The property is oddly configured in that it is one Loooooonnnnnnngggg building, close to football field in length. There a multiple entrances, however, the doors in the rear are only used for exiting. None are keylock access. If you exit and the door closes, you have to walk halfway up the building to get back in! If you are in the last room, as we were, that's a big hump if you are toting luggage. I'd recommend the property put keylock access. The doors were propped open with stones and things so the smokers could go out and return. With the doors propped open, the smoke was drawn into the hallways. It didn't invade the room, but we walked into a stinkbomb as we exited the room. We will admit to having an issue with smoking, but since the facility is advertised as non-smoking, we'd prefer to have that smell outside. The room was comfortable in the end. The pillows and bed were nice. The AC blew cold and all was well in the end.
