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

Part of that tradition is the Hotel in Fond Du Lac and 7 nights of this wonderful Hotel. The service is amazing, the cleanliness is impeccable, the folks are amazingly friendly and everything is...

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!

My friend and I stayed here in Aug. of 2012. I've been meaning to write this review for awhile, but I am still having a hard time believing what happened. We thought it would be fun to stay here for the adventure of being in a haunted hotel. I read all the reviews on-line and knew that the 7th floor... More

We stayed at the Retlaw for the weekend while visiting my daughter at the college down the street. The location was very convenient as it is walking distance to a number of cute little shops and pubs. We stayed on the 7th floor which we heard had been recently updated. The room was very clean and was perfect for what... More

My husband and I spent one night and we liked our stay. Downtown location was convenient, but the sign on the outside of hotel reads Ramada, while the reservation reads Retlaw Plaza, so we were a bit confused. The staff was nice, our room was on 7th floor, clean, comfortable, and quiet. Breakfast was all right, chef prepared us omelet... More

We took two rooms for the Oshkosh event. A tired and worn out hotel which has definitely seen better days and needs money spending in it to take it out of the time warp. Rubbish and old furniture rotting outside when you look out of your room windows. Makes you wonder how they store and keep other things...... Dinner- there's... More
