“My Stay”

  , Calumet
We are from Michigan, my daughter had to go to Madison, WI clinic for surgery. My friend and I drove her. We were able to make a reservation at HOJO on short notice, when she had to stay overnight, which was nice. They didn't give any discount for people who are patients of the hospital, or their families, which many hotels do, I was a bit disappointed by that. Coming into the lot, the road was very icy, bumpy and rough, so much so, that our big vehicle with good tires was sliding all over. We were driving slow, and had a hard time getting moving again once we stopped. The staff said that the incoming driveway road was plowed by the city, so I guess that wasn't the hotel's fault. The food in the hotel bar, was excellent, in fact, it was the best burger I had in a while, anywhere. The bar was open late and they served us fairly quickly, which was great, because after checking in, we were tired and didn't want to go out again. The staff was very nice and sincere, they gave out toiletries which we didn't bring; razors, shampoo, lotion, body wash. They didn't have laundry soap available for the washer that you could use though, and there was no hand soap in the room either. The hallway outside our room was really cold, almost like outside cold. I went for a dip in their nice big pool before bed, and It was very cold walking to the pool area, and absolutely freezing when walking back while I was damp. Everything looked clean in the room, until my daughter bumped into the mattress, then you could see the puke stains and pieces of what looked like onion, left on the box spring by the previous hotel guest. We didn't bother to complain about it. Checked the sheets, put the mattress back, went to sleep. We got a good sleep, it was quiet and the heat worked well in the room without making it stuffy. WI-FI in the room was slow and hard to connect to, by phone or computer. The breakfast was exceptionally good in the morning, with oatmeal, french toast, several kinds of cold cereal, hot eggs, fresh fruit, sausage, fried potatoes, several kinds of juice, milk and all the little extras. The only thing that they didn't have was brown sugar for the oatmeal, the nice staff member tried to get me some from the kitchen, but they were out, or they didn't have any. All the staff at the hotel was cheerful, pleasant and friendly in the morning. Over all, we had a good stay and will go back to that hotel in a few days when my daughter has to go back to the hospital again.
