Before I first visited Marinette I was told that the time difference between the city and the UK was twenty-five years and not the stated six hours. Only twenty-five years?!
If you like peace and quiet and want to imagine what the United States was like in the mid-70's, then Marinette is the destination of choice for you and the Riverfront Inn is probably where you will want to stay. It is the only "proper" hotel in the city and despite visibly ageing, it does offer good accommodation for the price. As someone who has spent the equivalent of seven months in town since summer 2002 I think that I can speak with some authority here!
From check-in, through restaurant service to house-keeping you will be met with smiling faces and friendly people, all of whom will help you whenever you need it. Everything is kept clean and tidy and it a comfortable venue for your stay.
One word of warning - as it is the one hotel in town it is also the venue for teams of various sports to base themselves from when competitions are hosted in Marinette. Therefore if you don't like screaming kids (and drunk parents) running up and down your corridor late at night, then it might be best to check with reception before booking a stay there....
Unique Quality: Nothing is outstanding, but then nothing is poor. There is a nice indoor pool that feels very warm when it is -20C outside in January. The restaurant won't ever win any Michelin stars, but again what it does offer is plain food and prompt service, all at a reasonable price. The rooms tend to be quite spacious and in summer the view across the river and Stephenson Island from the front rooms is quite stunning. From the back however all you get are the Court House and a drive through bank to look at.
For those of you driving there is adequate parking to the sides of the hotel, with a large overspill carpark just across the road.
