Clean and no frills
Nice location for Devil's Lake. Clean, easy access and a good restaurant next door. The hot, water pressure for the shower was low, but that is my only complaint. If I return to the area, I would not hesitate to stay again.

Loud drunks kept us up for 2.5 hours
Our check-in experience was fine. The room was cold when we arrived, as the heat had been turned off. It took about 90 minutes for the room to get up to temperature. The only incident that happened on this trip that we were not expecting was that our neighbors in room 209 decided that 2:00 am was a great time to have a very LOUD heated discussion. We did not appreciate being woken up at that hour. We also didn’t appreciate that every time they sounded like the conversation was over and we could get back to sleep, they started up again. We were up until 5:30 am because of their LOUD heated discussion. The guy closest to the wall was so LOUD that I was able to hear every word of his side of the conversation. You may find this hard to believe, but we believe that alcohol was involved. Now, you may ask, did we call hotel management? Did we call the police? The answer to both questions is no. We didn’t have any confidence that the kid running the front desk would be able to handle this situation. We thought about calling the police, but we were concerned that the loud drunks were going to figure out that we were the ones who called the police and find a way to retaliate against us. We never heard anything that sounded like violence, but we had no way to know if they had weapons. We decided to just deal with it and hope they would eventually fall asleep. After this incident, we will probably find another hotel to stay the next time we are in Baraboo.

Quite the Disappointment This Time
We stayed here before, and it was fine. If you don't mind a motel that is not modern, it is okay. There was a funky smell when we walked in (like stale, stale cigarette smoke and beer, although our room was smoke-free). We had airspray and bought some air fresheners to put around. After a while we became "nose blind", so that was okay. The cleaning could have been done better because there even was a plastic cup under my bed! Really?? The bathtub drain couldn't handle the water, and the water continued to collect when it should have drained out. BUT, the kicker were some of the other "guests" on a New Year's Eve. We would have expected that someone in charge would have kept an eye out for problems. These rowdy people were shouting and arguing and slamming things from 2:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m.! The language was above and beyond what should have been heard in public! Later, a friend told us that Thunderbird is notorious for quite a few police calls. We probably won't go back. The previous stay was nothing like this time, but we don't want to chance it.
