I recently stayed one night at the Best Western Menomonie on a Friday night for a quick weekend getaway. I have a cousin attending UW-Stout, so I decided to come up and visit her and go to their football game with her on Saturday. I had an excellent overnight stay, and I would definitely return on future trips to the area. I arrived to check-in by about 3:45 on Friday afternoon. This was about a 4-hour drive from my home, so it was nice to have a room waiting for me so that I could relax for a while! The desk clerk was friendly and personable, and she went over all pertinent information like the amenities and how to get to the room. I also got a nice surprise in that my rate went way down from what they quoted me at reservation! When I called to reserve the room about 2 months before I made the trip, they quoted me $142 + tax for the 1 night, which I thought was kind of steep but I took it anyway. I was delighted to hear that it was mistakenly put in as a special event weekend, and that was not the case, so my rate went down to $87 + tax, which saved me significant money! After tax and everything, I paid about $98, which is not bad at all for a Friday night in a decent hotel! The check-in process was very quick here. I had a standard room with king bed on the 3rd floor, and I was far to one end of the floor, so it was nice and quiet! I liked the location of this hotel being a few blocks from the main drag on a quieter street. My room was very nice, and everything was in very good shape. The room was cleaned well, and I enjoyed the variety of TV stations available. The bathroom was very clean, and they provided some nice toiletries like soap, shampoo, and lotion. My bed was very comfortable also, and I slept very soundly. I relaxed in the room for a while before meeting up with my cousin at UW-Stout and spending some time with her in the evening. It was an easy 5-10 minute drive to campus, and this entire area is beautiful! I returned to the hotel later on but with enough time to try out the indoor pool and whirlpool. It was rather crowded down there, and the hotel seemed full or close to it, but I enjoyed relaxing in the whirlpool! The pool was a bit cool for my taste, but I enjoyed getting in a little swim, too. They were out of pool towels when I got down there, but these were quickly replenished only a few minutes later. I woke up feeling rested on Saturday morning, and I went down to breakfast by about 8:15. It was not super crowded yet, and they do serve breakfast until 10:30 on weekends which is pretty late! The breakfast was the one thing that I found to be just OK. The hot items were not particularly appetizing to me, and I did not care for the breakfast potatoes. However, I enjoyed the prepared oatmeal with various toppings. I didn't eat a super large breakfast because I was meeting back up with my cousin for an early lunch before the football game. I went back to the pool and whirlpool for a while after breakfast, and it was again pretty crowded, but I still enjoyed my time there. It was nice that checkout is not until Noon here, as that gave me some extra time in the morning. It was nice getting to do some reading before I had to vacate the room! I was checking out by about 11:30, and the morning clerk was also friendly and asked how everything was with my stay. I was pleased to say that I enjoyed my stay very much! The cookies and citrus water out at the front desk were a nice touch, and I enjoyed the free USA Today newspaper offered, too. I would return to and recommend this Best Western, and I usually have a good experience at Best Western properties! I enjoyed getting more time with my cousin and watching the football game together before heading back home. I had an excellent stay at the Menomonie Best Western, and this would be a great choice for anyone planning a visit to the area! less
