At our Wausau hotel guests can enjoy skiing at Granite Peak Ski Area in the winter or motorcycle rides like the Harley Davidson Tomahawk Fall Ride in warmer weather, any time is a great time to visit. Whether its a corporate event, wedding, or sports tournament that brings you to town, there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained. From the Badger State Games, Marathon County Youth Hockey tournaments, and softball tournaments to checking out the Wisconsin Valley Fair, theres never a dull moment in Central Wisconsin. Next to Granite Peak Ski Area and Rib Mountain State Park, were the closest hotel to some of the most incredible outdoor recreation sites. Enjoy scheduled shuttle service along with bike and walking trails right off the edge of the property. Relax in our domed tropical atrium pool area with a whirlpool, arcades, ping pong table and billiards table. Nothing beats a little R&R before exploring many of the unique local attractions such as the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum where the Bird in Art Festival is held each fall. Were located next to I-39, US-51 and WI-29, with shopping only minutes away, including the Wausau Center Mall and many stores lining Rib Mountain Drive. Truck parking is available for rigs and RVs. Enjoy Broadway shows, comedians and concerts at the Grand Theater, several micro-breweries like Great Dane Pub, Red Eye Brewing Company and Bull Falls Brewery, and who could forget about the live music on the downtown 400 block throughout the summer. For guests here on business with Aspirus Hospitals and Marshfield Clinic, youll have a fast commute. Clients and employees of Greenheck Fan Corp., Marathon Cheese Corp., Kolbe and Kolbe & Kolbe Millwork Co. Inc and many other area businesses often call us their second home. If its a meeting that brings you here, you have over 6,000 square feet of flexible meeting space with on-site catering at your service. Book your BEST WESTERN Midway Hotel room now!

Tired of dirty hotels...
wausau, WI
Jul 6, 2014

Ants and spiders oh my!

Room: Dirty...a floss stick in bathroom lighting fixture..housekeeping should have easily seen during cleaning...DUSTY room=yuck (literally footprints in dust on heating vent!...Dirty ice bucket...everything felt sticky...not good with young kids touching everything! Ants were crawling on desk area-had to throw out pizza we just ordered in fear that it was covered in ants...Beds are double beds...very small for 2 people...bathroom was gross...wallpaper dirty and stained and bath tiles falling apart... Pool-Hotel has nice pool area but a VERY large spider was floating in it...along with other garbage hanging out on bottom of the pool...not a great first pool experience for the young ones. The pool area was to close at 11pm but we heard loud screaming and "cannonball" coming from pool area until much later. Lots of yelling and loud music throughout the middle of the night...not a relaxing experience...music seemed to be from hotel itself...very loud if in poolside room at 2am...not sure why they had music piped in pool area at that hour... Breakfast-don't let the pictures on the website fool you...there is NOT a great looking buffet...it is simply a table with some unattractive, tasteless items on it...wait staff hovered to attempt their tip #which a sign encouraged you to leave# but coffee on buffet was empty entire time we ate...had to ask for cups for the juice that was out...no utensils available...dirty tables...maybe instead of following you around to try and get you to tip they should have been paying attention to sad buffet... Housekeeping-left a vacuum right in middle of lobby door area with cord blocking door from opening, while they went out front to smoke, so in order for me to get out door to get luggage cart I had to move the vacuum and cord while they watched me struggle to do so with 2 young kids... Bar/restaurant-we were excited to have a hotel with bar/restaurant to avoid having to leave for dinner but they said they decided to close so staff could all go to fireworks together...would have been nice to know before getting there #like check in#... Not the worst hotel I have ever had...but pretty close...for $10 more we could have stayed at The Plaza right down the road...why oh why didn't I pick the Plaza???

Good value, comfortable room, no surprises

The room was spacious and clean, with all of the expected amenities. The overall décor is somewhat dated but everything was well-maintained and worked as it was supposed to. Staff was friendly and helpful. Both hot and cold breakfast was included in room price. The only negative was "piped-in" music in the breakfast room was too loud.

Decent

The room was clean and comfortable. No complaints once we got to it. Check-in was really slow. There was only one desk clerk despite several other employees (including possibly the manager?) milling about, and it took a while to get checked in. Even then, the room we reserved had one king-sized bed, but upon opening the assigned door, we were greeted by the sight of two single beds. They straightened out the error, but we had to trek to the lobby and again wait in line.

Ski getaway

Perfect location to Granite Peak ski area literally 2 minutes away. Only problem I had was the noise from the adjoining room. If I had a room without one of those adjoining room doors the noise level would have been better. Luckily I had some ear plugs.

Awesome spot!

Great value, awesome amenities, very clean. Came to Wausau for a friend's wedding and honestly was not expecting much for the price but WOW! Very clean, big, comfortable room. Staff was kind and accommodating (but be ready to have your room cleaned at 9:30am). The hot continental breakfast was a little cold, but I won't complain since it was FREE and had lots of options (cereal, sausage, eggs, biscuits, bagels, yogurt, fruit, waffles, coffee, juice). The best part was the pool area! The pool was awesome, as was the hot tub, and there were pool tables, arcade games, and a ping pong table for our use as well! I was very impressed and would definitely recommend!
