I came to Holiday Acres over 50 years ago with my parents and sisters so when I saw the reviews upon a visit with my husband to Rhinelander, I was excited to return to a place I remembered fondly. I selected a "King bedroom with spa". Assuming we would have a luxurious bathroom off our bedroom. We were surprised to find that the "spa" was a jacuzzi tub IN our bedroom. And there was nothing spa-like about our outdated bathroom with cheap toilet paper, ivory-style soap and no shampoo. The carpeting in the hallways were stained and frayed. I walked through the coffee shop which was not open, but smelled stale. And I almost forgot to add that the floors are so thin that every step of the people above us or creak of their bed could be heard in our room.
The place is not unclean, the bed was comfortable enough, the dining room was adequate, and the service was friendly. But for $173 I would expect better. I should have left the Holiday Acres of my childhood as a fond memory. We left as quickly as we could, and ate breakfasr at the Dinky Diner in Rhinelander- a little gem in the rough.
