Our Family

Fitzgerald’s Motel is a family owned business. With a lot of loving care, the motel has been remodeled and improved recently (new roof, siding, carpets, bathrooms, furniture and flat TVs in all rooms, and more). We want to keep the rooms affordable and we are very aware that, for many people, incomes have not kept up with the cost of living. Some people find us purposely and some by accident, but everyone has great stories to share. Guests who have stayed with us have treated our motel as their own home, and we thank them for that.

Thank you Armed Forces for freedom

I always think of my son, Andrew, who came home from war on Memorial Day years ago. I still remember his words when he called before the war started, “Mom, I love you. I had to tell you that I wanted the best for you and for my country. I hope I’ll come back home. If not, these words will be sent back to you in my uniform. Semper Fi.”

When he made it through the war he also said, “Mom, it was an honor and privilege to serve in this country’s military. What I learned during this difficult time is that in life, I need to be flexible, to realize that sometimes difficult challenges are best viewed as an adventure. I learned that living in a civilized way is not about having the finest things, but about the way people treat one another. I saw that when things are tough, other people can be a great resource of information, strength, kindness, discipline, courage and commitment. Without those brave people, our freedom would not exist.”

Thank you to each man and woman in arms who has died as we place the American Flag on Memorial Day.

Our business has a moral contract with our guests to provide safety and an honest service at a fair price. Treating guests honestly and fairly is a hallmark of our daily operations for many years. Quality customer service is our daily priority. Guests inputs valued and implemented, and they have an important contribution to our success. Rules and polices respect individuals. Our business understands its place in the community/country and acts, as much as possible, to benefit the community/country as well our family. We recognize that we’re part of the community in which we operate. We make an effort to be good neighbors and we support our host communities in various ways, such as involvement in local business groups and nonprofits, sponsorship of local events( Sport teams, festivals, Wisconsin Dells Events, Radio and TV stations, Veterans, children and older people in need, and the like), and charitable programs, which can be both community and nationally based. Our son, Andrew proudly served the country. Our daughter, Katherine volunteered many years as the Emergency Technician at DeForest, WI. Now, she’s saving people’e life every day. Treating others with respect and dignity is a core value that extends to everyone at Fitzgerald’s Motel. We want our guests to have a great experience and want to return to beautiful Wisconsin Dells and that they, of course, try out a visit to Fitzgerald’s Motel.

In ancient times there was a prayer for “The Stranger within Our Gates.”

Because this motel is a human institution to serve people, and not solely a money-making organization, we hope that God will grant you peace and rest while you are under our roof.

May this room and motel be your “second home.”

May those you love be near you in thoughts and dreams.

Even though we may not get to know you, we hope that you will be comfortable and happy, as if you were in your own home.

May this business that brought you our way prosper.

May every call you make and every message you receive add to your joy.

When you leave, may your journey be safe.

We are all travelers, from “birth to death…” We travel between the eternities.

May these days be pleasant for you, profitable for society,helpful for those you meet, and a joy to those who know and love you best.

Thank you for selecting The Fitzgerald’s Motel. We wish you many happy returns to the Midwest.

Warm regards,

Margaret Gewont, Manager
