Plaza Hotel And Suites

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is just a bit outdated, but in a charming way.

Room was clean and well kept. Bed was comfortable.

The front desk lady was drunk, our room was so musty we had to go buy candles air fresheners and air purifier to even stay in the room we would have left but no hotels in the area had any rooms left I would love a refund on my stay

When we checked in they said the pool has been down for a week and then when we got to our room the Wi-Fi would not connect and they did not do anything about it

We specifically go to hotels in the winter to use hot tubs, and we have used this one in the past. This particular weekend the hot tub was not working, nor was the children's pool area. The children ended up going into the hot tub because it was not hot. The hotel has not been able to keep up with maintenance this winter. There are buckets everywhere because of the leaking skylights. We will not choose this hotel in the winter anymore.

The door was very difficult to open with the key card. There was no hot water until morning. Otherwise, it was relatively clean.

I stayed here on a recent business trip, I literally booked it on my way to Wausau. I wasn't expecting much for the price, but was pleasantly surprised. Check in was simple, rooms and hotel are showing their age but overall not that bad. Didn't make use of any of the facilities as I was in late and out early but I would use it again for the same situation.

Booked the hotel for 2 nights and during the whole stay the hotel had no hot water. Water is ICE COLD! Was promised it would be fixed on second day which it wasn't. Then was told I would be charged a fee if I cancelled my second night. Was told I won't know how much they are gonna compensate me if any for 2 more days.

The hotel is older but maintained. Still could use a little more maintenance but not bad. It has a functioning hot tub, kid's pool, and regular pool. In addition the sauna is also working along with some gym equipment.

Pretty straight up for your money. Open air pool and rooms facing that direction may get people sitting and talking outside the room late at night. Skip the breakfast. Nice desk staff.

Went to this hotel so we could do trail running at the Nine Mile Forest. Staff were friendly. Great place to bring pets. No issues with the room and only a $15.00 pet fee. The bartenders were friendly and welcoming. The only drawback was breakfast. They should mention that the cook only cooks food like eggs and pancakes, etc. up until like 9 a.m. We came down at 9:30 and there wasn't any hot food left. Just one cup of waffle batter for the waffle maker. At first the staff that was there basically said "too bad" and then she brought out more cups of batter and some bread. I felt like we were "getting what we deserved" for coming in toward the end. lol

The room smelled very bad when we opened the door. The room was very hot inside. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I was very disappointed. It cost way more than it was worth.

Basic inexpensive hotel, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable. Large pool in the middle of the hotel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Fairly close to downtown and easy access to freeway.

Although the rooms are outdated, the stay was very comfortable. The facility has a great history and was fun to explore. The pool area is nice.

Had an enjoyable two night stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean. Nice pool and spa although the pool water was a bit cold. Having a bar and restaurant on premises was a definite plus and the food was exceptional.

Overall a good hotel. Very interesting historic feeling to the hotel. Beds are average for comfort. Breakfast was awful with stale/dry doughnuts. Accommodating when pool was unavailable.

i always stay here when flying in and out of Wausau. It's comfortable and convenient. Nice staff too! Try the walleye fish dinner. Very good and good for you!

It was nice, only complaint was the ice build up on the sliding door, it was cooold outside!

This is the place to go if your staying in Wausau Wi. Its ckean comfortable with a great staff that worked with me and even upgraded my room for no charge. Definitely going back soon.
