This is an excellent hotel. We stayed here based on other reviews. It is all true. The rooms are very large, as big as "suites" in some other hotels. The refrigerator and microwave were nice to have during our 6 day stay. Everything about the physical facility was excellent for this class of hotel. It is up to date, clean... More

I chose this hotel online, for its location near the shopping mall and its lower price. It was just for one night, on my way back from a business conference. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a very nice hotel. The location was perfect for the mall visit. (There were also many additional stores in close proximity.) The... More

Great experience for the following 10 reasons: 1) Close to the Fox River Mall and within walking distance to great familiar restaurants. 2) Very accomodating service/front desk staff. 3) Fresh complimentary coffee/tea and cookies available in the lobby area. 4) Very modern/updated decor. 5) One of the hottest hot tubs I've experienced (definite plus!!) and the pool wasn't cold. 6)...

Service was good at the front desk and rooms were spacious, updated and clean. Breakfast was very nice too. We only wish that there was a bartender in the evenings. The location was great with a lot of shopping and eateries in the area.

The front desk was called numerous times about noise levels and kids in the hallway and they said they were going to handle it and nothing was ever done. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a calm quiet nights rest.

I was extremely impressed with what Grand Stay Appleton has done with this property and client experience. I was treated in a friendly, respectful manner, had an impeccable king-bed room, and received poised responses for a myriad of questions I posed to them.

I stayed at this location with students attending a conference from around the state. The facilities were clean and spacious. I was impressed at how quiet the facility was, and it was clean everywhere I looked. The breakfast area was equipped with a waffle maker, cereal, danish, yogurt, milk, juices, and coffee. My students and I were thrilled!
