Spent 2 nights at this property and had a very nice experience from the time we checked in to the moment we left. Staff is very helpful especially since this trip I left my my toiletries and apparently my brains at home. They had no problems supplying the necessary and complimentary sample size items for a 2 night stay. Our... More

Walking distance to shops and restaurants. We travel a lot and I have to say the beds were the most comfortable beds ever. Friendly staff and for an older hotel very well kept up. Food was decent. We would definitely go back.

My wife and I stayed here for a wedding about 15 minutes away. The hotel is very nice - clean, in great condition, helpful staff, and very clean, comfortable rooms. The hotel is easy to find, with two parking lots that seemed to have plenty of room, even though we returned to the hotel well after midnight. It has a... More

Had no idea we were here for the worlds largest fish fry. The launch at the marina was closed and had to launch the boat in sheboygan. The only problem at the hotel was parking. Had to park a few blocks away. Service at the bar restaurant was quite poor during breakfast record number of people and completely understaffed. Breakfast... More

We always stay here mainly because it is the only hotel on the water. The staff is always friendly along with all of the locals. This was our 3rd 4th of July there. The room along with the mattress needs updated. The furniture is worn. The mattress is obviously old, body indentations in it. The Tub had a patch in... More

The location is great! It looks out on the harbor! We thought that it might be noisy being that we had two views: street and harbor. But it was fine. There is Rotary Park and Coal Park both of which have great paved paths for anyone in a wheelchair or on a scooter. It was great to have a refrigerator... More

I would absolutely stay here again. I loved the European decor of the room. The room overall was excellent. Loved the colorful hallway carpet. But, the lobby was dull and whatever you do, Do Not eat at the hotel restaurant!!! Rude service, inedible food we had for breakfast.

We have stayed here before, and it's always clean and comfortable. But, it's a little dated and needs some basic repairs. The toilet in room 203 doesn't flush well, and none of the outlets in the bathroom worked. But the beds were very comfortable and the room was nice enough - we didn't spend much time in the room.

We intended this to be a crash spot after a late night at Summerfest on our way up north. We found instead a solid property located in an incredibly scenic and historic lakefront downtown that definitely has us thinking of a return, longer visit. Everything in the room (303) appeared to be refurbished except the curtains which did the job... More
