Went here as a result of the cruddy Chalet motel down the road. We were there for a wedding and still haven't finished wrapping gifts. The front desk manager let us use the empty breakfast room to wrap gifts. It was so above and beyond nice of them to do that. The rooms are also above and beyond what you expect. LCD HD TVs, pillow top beds, LONGER ethernet cables, surge protectors, ample free outlets for charging your phone, laptop, cameras, etc, great breakfast, nice pool, hot tub, parking lot with LOTS of lighting, etc. Next time I'm up there, I'm staying here. I have a gold rewards card now to save points, etc :-)
My check in went very quick and smoothly. I had a pool side room near an exit door. It's an older motel, but the rooms were clean. Even though it was pool side I did not smell chlorine like and it was not overly humid like a lot of hotels. Thought it was a great room and a great price. I was booked for two night, but ended up only staying one night. The bed was comfortable. The fridge and coffee maker were in working order.The pool area closed at 11:00 pm and all went silent and I fell asleep almost immediately.
I have stayed at many hotels in the Eau Claire area, but the AmericInn tops them all. The hotel was very clean and comfortable which made me feel safe and at home while traveling alone. The pool was warm, breakfast was good, and the staff was very helpful. Another reason I enjoyed this location is the fact I didn't have to fight through town to get back on the road to start another busy day.
