On a last minute trip to the Dells in the middle of summer and just for a one night stay on a weekend....there weren't a lot of choices for places to stay at all. I didn't want to spend the big bucks for a room I was just going to be sleeping in for a few hours either. Came across...

My husband and I stayed at the Spinning Wheel Motel for Memorial Day weekend while we went canoeing, hiked Devil's Lake State Park, and generally explored attractions in the area (distilleries, winery, etc.). We did not spend a ton of time at the motel since we were out doing other activities for the majority of the day. Because of this,...

I stayed in the Spinning Wheel Motel recently and I was very pleased by my stay. The staff was very polite. The front desk and the rooms were kept very clean and organized. Even the bathroom was spotless. The motel is close to a very nice Mexican restaurant and as well as the Cascade, a ski place. Overall, I am...

I visited Wisconsin dells over Christmas and stayed at this motel, the place is well maintained and the owner/employers were very friendly. The motel location is great and is close to many Wisconsin dells attractions. I would definitely recommend this motel to friends and family, and would not hesitate to stay here on my next visit.

I wish I could say we're exaggerating or mistaken, but we caught one of the bugs and even have pictures. I also wish I could say we brought them from somewhere else, but my girlfriend reacts instantaneously to the bites and this was the only reaction she had in our 30 + days of travelling. We found the bugs at...

We never had bed bugs in our Motel. We hire professional pest control services. I don't know how come you have this issue. We gave you another room and some more time to check out and still you are not satisfied.

I was very impressed with the high standards here. The room is basic but everything I need: clean, comfortable bed with firm support, good internet connection and surprisingly roomy. This may be the largest room for the price I've stayed in. Not huge but big.

We stayed there last weekend. It's an older motel but looked nice, the grounds were nice. The office smelled pretty bad, not bad if you like the smell of curry, but I don't. The owners live there and I'm sure that was their cooking. The room we were in smelled and we had to really air it out, the comforters...

This motel was concerning. I am all about economical lodging. But I planned to stay at this place by myself . The first thing I noticed when I pulled around back to my room, was the many other questionable looking occupants who looked like "permanent" lodgers. They were sitting outside the other rooms smoking, or just loitering around. All were...

This is an older classic motel not upgraded in years, but the sheets were clean, the water hot and the wifi & air conditioner worked. It has a great location on the east side of Baraboo coming in from the interstate. For a budget-conscious traveller it's OK - the stained carpet and beat-up doors don't affect your sleep. Its right...

My Wife and I stayed here 3 nights over the Memorial Day Weekend. This is an older Hotel, but the owners take good care of it. The price was extremely low and the location is about the best you can get near downtown Baraboo and the surrounding area. It's close to several area attractions as well as main highway's. The...
