I stayed here for a wedding and had two different rooms. The first room was very dated and dirty. The room key also quit working twice on us. The next room was more updated but the paint on the walls was all scuffed up and coming off. The bathtub had mold on it and the shower head was so old.... More

I was prepared for a "period dated room" but not a neglected room. When in baseball a team doesn't perform they fire the manager. In the hotel business, that is the general manager. Wall scuffs, bent towel rods, rust on the heater, cigarette burn marks, wall paper seals coming loose, bathroom wall tiles with mold, rust on bathroom drain, heater... More

This hotel has the small town historic look and feel! You can feel the history! This place is not new and yes the rooms feel old, but that's the charm! Rooms are very clean and bed is comfortable! TV's are not flat screen or LCD but again, old school charm! Loved the shower heads! High pressure and very nice! We've... More

My family stayed at the Retlaw in August. The first thing I noticed was the historical charm in the front lobby. A lot of famous people had stayed there over the years which they proudly display on the walls. We stayed on the 7th floor very close to the "haunted" room. When we entered our room, it smelled like cigarettes,... More

I recently stayed at the Retlaw Plaza Hotel. I believed it used to be a larger chain hotel before Retlaw. It is in the downtown section of Fond du Lac. I did not see any parking garage I parked on the dark street. The bed reminded me of a WWF wrestling platform...HARD. The breakfast in the morning was standard. If... More

This hotel is a charmer- inexpensive accommodations, wonderful meeting/catering options to meet every business need, and above and beyond service excellence provided by each employee I encountered. The location is nicely situated in the downtown. The hotel has been well maintained for its age, and retains some of the old world splendor in the lobby and ballrooms. A real gem!

My Father-in-law and I stayed at the Retlaw Plaza July 20-26 2015. We were there for the annual Oshkosh Airventure fly-in. We stayed on the 7th floor in a nice room. Was very quiet and clean. Breakfast was awesome as they add a few additional items for those staying the week of the fly-in. The front desk clerks were very... More

Big CLEAN room. Large soft towel Helpful staff. Free Breakfast. The hotel has been remodeled and updated, but still retains that old world charm. It's like the charming hotel you stay in when in Europe and then write home about. I recommend it highly.

The Retlaw needs to be closed down and demolished. The hotel is old and in disrepair. The rooms are seriously the dirtiest I have ever seen. Hair all over bathroom, rusted out toilet. I would of checked out and went to another hotel in the area if I was not there for more than one night and on business. The... More

I liked the indoor pool, whirlpool and sauna. Open till 11pm most nights. Ref. and microwave in room. I had a large flat screen TV in my 7th floor room. The free breakfast had a waffle iron blue berry or reg batter. There was a chef making omlets the way you want them made with lots of add in ingredents.... More
