Family was tent camping and rain was in forecast, needed a place to stay. I would of slept in the tent or car instead of here. Smelly, dirty, worn down. Did not use pool. It was disgusting. Did not have free breakfast, did not want to chance it. Did not feel very safe either. Pictures on website do not truthfully... More

This hotel is clean and provides nice breakfast. I was assigned to a handicap room that I did not request. It was fine with me though. It happened to be that my knee was hurting that day when I checked in and I was ok for staying on the first floor and without a bathtub in my room. On thing... More

Normally I wouldn't write a review for a 3 start hotel, but my experience at the Ho Jo's in Appleton, WI was a pleasing stay and didn't have the garish orange and blue decoration. Instead I found a very clean hotel that looked more of a swiss-like chalet type interior. Since I was out of town, the desk staff were... More

I was glad I read the previous reviews in order to choose a hotel for my Appleton stay. The fact that it was recently renovated made it clean feeling and therefore comfortable. I appreciated the desk to do my work with the free wi fi. The bed and pillows were very nice for a lower end hotel. The room was... More

While not a newer property, this is a nice hotel for a great price. The beds were very comfortable and the continental breakfast more extensive than anticipated for the price. The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. The location made it easy to get on-and-off College Avenue, which is not true of some of the other area hotels located near... More

Older hotel but room was very comfortable and quiet. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We chose this hotel because it had a pool and other Wyndham hotels in area did not but there was a $50 room charge if we wanted to have a family member come over and swim. This was not known before getting there.

I was in town for a local frisbee tournament and stayed here because some teammates were. The hotel is extremely average. It appears they tried to do some updates in the early 2000's but havent done anything since then. The hotel can be a bit noisy if kids are parading up the hall ways. The staff was very friendly though.... More

This place is a joke. The WORST. We arrive and get our room. All the while there are hints of popcorn smells and cigarette smoke. Once we make it to the room our room number is nowhere to be found. We walk back and ask what that is about. We are shown our room by the front desk person. The... More
