When I checked in, they couldn't find my reservation but assured me they would find a room for me. The room was okay but I could tell it hadn't been occupied in awhile because there was a thin layer of dust throughout the room and a dead bouquet of flowers. I didn't go to bed until almost 1:00 a.m. But... More

Right downtown in Fond du lac, walking distance to clubs and restaurants. Our room was comfortable till we tried out the A/C which was not working at all! We were promptly relocated to an upgraded room, which was very comfortable. Didn't have time to check out the lower level amenities, but breakfast was superb with omelets, waffles, fresh breads and... More

Stayed at Retlaw Plaza 6/15-6/19/14 with my daughter. We didn't have any problems. Rooms were good. Breakfast was really good. Had someone there to make omelets and waffles every morning. Also fresh fruit and cereal. Ice machine on our floor didn't work, but that was no big deal. The fitness room in the motel was great. I spent a lot... More

As others have mentioned , this hotel is a "little tired" Bedroom OK but old fashioned and more lighting is required if you are attempting to work. Breakfast very limited and hot coffee would have been welcome. Good location, fortunately heating in the rooms is very good. Recommend

This was my second time staying at the Retlaw in the past 1.5 years. I have relatives in FDL area so visit occasionally. I love the location since it is right downtown and we like to walk around and shop/bar hop. The service has always been friendly. Rooms are clean and the complimentary breakfast was pretty good. Relatively standard with... More

My fiance and I went to this hotel and were enjoying the piano music when all of sudden a guy came and sat on my fiance's lap. I told him this was inappropriate and then not 5 minutes later the hotel bartender came up to my fiance rolling up her sleeves, saying "I just punched out" and wanted to fight... More

We stayed at the Retlaw one night while looking at the area. The room needs updated finishes and fixtures in the bathroom but it was clean. We had flat screen TV and cable. No smell, mildew etc that others here mentioned. Made to order breakfast was awesome but one fellow working. They need someone to staff the coffee bar too.... More

I really enjoyed the hotel and the staff was excellent. The hotel was very clean and I enjoyed the new restaurant at the hotel. I look forward to staying there again on my next visit to fond du lac. The staff was courteous and knowledgeable about great things to do in the city.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel over the weekend. The first room we checked into was filthy! We asked for another room and it was better, but still dirty and shabby. Stains on the chairs, dirty carpet, dirty microwave, mildew in the shower...gross! And the whole hotel stunk especially the 8th floor! Do not stay at hotel!
