3 Ways Modern Motels May Surprise You, Onalaska, Wisconsin

If you haven't stayed at a motel in quite some time, you may be in for a surprise. Originally built to provide quick and comfortable lodging to motorists, motels were primarily distinguished by their proximity and accessibility to their parking lot; while that's still true, many improvements have been made over the years.

Room Size

Most motels were designed to provide respite for travelers, which meant the rooms were smaller and simpler. However, a common renovation has been to increase room size, allowing for more than an overnight stay. These rooms allow you to completely unwind, not just get a few hours of sleep. Since they're bigger, they also accommodate larger groups, which makes them perfect for family vacations!


motelNow that rooms are bigger, there's additional space for amenities. More motel rooms are being outfitted with appliances like mini-fridges, microwaves, and even dishwashers. Those on cross-country road trips don't have to rely solely on pricey restaurants or a plethora of trail mix and protein bars. Updated motels make it easy to buy food at the local grocery store and prepare it as you would at home.


Although they're designed for rest, motels have incorporated more activities for both individuals and groups. While many have swimming pools, you may also find full fitness rooms with exercising equipment. For those who prefer something more social, depending on the time of year, you may catch exciting events like a movie or game night!

With accommodating rooms, free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfasts, numerous amenities, and a large swimming pool, they have everything you need to relax.
