Located in scenic northern Wisconsin, this hotel is less than a 5-minute drive from the Wildwood Wildlife Park and Nature Center. It serves a continental breakfast every morning. Cable TV with HBO, free WiFi access and a hairdryer are included in every room at Northwoods Inn & Suites. Select rooms feature unique themed décor. Free tea and coffee are available at all times. Guests can also purchase drinks or snacks from the on-site vending machines. The front desk at the Northwoods Inn is staffed 24 hours a day. The Minocqua Museum is 1.5 miles from the hotel. Bearskin Trail is 2 miles away.
It's very nice if you're satisfied with the bare minimum. The staff is very efficient, however not especially friendly. Free coffee and sweets or cereal for breakfast.
Found the only room available in Minocqua on a busy summer weekend. Beds were comfortable, room was spartan but functional.
Over $100/night was way too much for the amenities, but apparently that is the going rate for all hotels in this area. "Continental breakfast" was a rack of pre-packaged foods you could find at a gas station, and the coffee was terrible.
I was pleasantly surprised with my stay here. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. My room had a fridge and microwave, and a new flat screen TV. The complimentary breakfast was limited, but there was enough selection if you're staying for a few nights or less. The owners staff the front desk, and they were very friendly. I will definitely look to stay here again. And the price per night was considerably less than other hotels in the area.
The rooms are on the small side, but for me it was no problem because I was there by myself. Families would likely need two rooms. Also, the bed could have used another pillow or two. But to be fair, I didn't ask for an extra one.
Very nice staff and good value for the cost.
