This hotel is the only hotel located in downtown Kenosha on the water. This reason and it's friendly staff is the only thing that makes this hotel stand out everything else about it is standard. The breakfast is that of a typical Holiday Inn express or typical Best Western hotel nothing different. With this location and price they would do...

This was a family trip, quiet hotel close to attractions. The morning breakfast had a huge selection for all to enjoy. Very modern décor and quiet rooms for sleeping. We went to nearby casino and hotel was easy to find when we traveled back late at night.

The view of the harbor is beautiful. Front desk check in (late at night) was very friendly and helpful. Walking distance to some good restaurants. Breakfast was good, but ran out of a few things, always a line up for the waffle maker. Had an issue with ants in the room.

The hotel was ok. It is on the Harbour. The bed was so-so soft and lumpy. The breakfast was also so-so. There are some bars in the area and you could see Lake Michigan from the property. Might be nice if you did a fishing charter. Nice park close, but not a row of shops or anything of that sort.

The rooms are always clean and tidy and the free breakfast in the morning is...

Good accommodations, comfortable bed, clean and accessible to the harbor / lake. One elevator in the entire building for guest use. Be prepared to take the stairs most of the time. Breakfasts are just okay. When the rooms are sales priced the value of this is good.

overall place was dirty and had spilled coffee in hallway, which was still there two days later (dried). Initially TV didn't work. Fixed my self. Phone didn't ever work. Changed WiFi password on second night and didn't bother telling me. When I asked what was wrong (after walking to front desk because, you guessed it, phone didn't work) was told...

the room was great and staff and amenities were excellent. I was in the area for a fishing trip with friends We all enjoyed the hotel and staff. We caught a lot of salmon and lake trout which was a blast. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.
