We stayed for 2 nights in a 2nd floor lake view room. Very clean and spacious. Saw the Badger Car Ferry, Manitowoc Museum, Farmer's Market, and Budweiser plant. Had dinners at Golden Flame Family Restaurant and Perkins. Good food and service at both. Went to the Two Rivers "Kites Over the Lake Event" and had a great time. Complimentary breakfasts... More

The hotel was very old. They could not make a reservation for another Best Western in Appleton. When you got odd the very slow elevator the area was extreamly hot as the 3rd floor rooms air conditioner exhust was vented to that floor. The only things were location & breakfast !!

Stayed here before and returned for another trip. Much quieter this stay with out the wedding fire drills. Overall a good experience. Staff excellent. Continental breakfast good. Rooms could use a little ongoing walkthrough for maintenance for repairs.

We took our grandchildren for a weekend get away and to tour the submarine, Cobia, the Maritime Museum and see the Lower Cato Waterfalls (15-minute drive from hotel on Hwy JJ). The museum was just a couple of blocks walk from the hotel. We were surprised to find out that there was not a DVD player in the room. We... More

We checked in at around 6:00 and our room was not ready We had to wait about an hour to get into our room. The front desk girl said she would call us when the room was ready and we never received a call. Also the hot tub had a strong odor of chlorine. If the odor is that strong... More

Hotel is old and needs update. Staff is very nice. They still use the old bedspreads that look like they haven't been washed in years. Location on lake is great. There is a nice trail you can run or walk on.

This hotel is next to the bike trail and river walk. Excellent location to see ships, the car ferry, etc. We biked the trail, which runs along Lake Michigan. The trail goes north to Two Rivers and is paved. The next day we biked the Rawley's Point trail to Point Beach State Forest, which is another awesome bike trail. Both... More

Friendly staff, nice room, lovely view. Plan on eating out as the breakfast is not worth the wait or calorie intake. Mainly low quality, cheap bread items....donuts, danish, plain white bagel, white bread, waffles, cereal, biscuits 'n gravy.

On a motorcycle trip to northern Wi .Staff was great getting us to our room and letting us know about the area. Would come back again. Everything we did was in walking distance. Did the museum and saw some great boats in the harbor. Great check out , fast everyone was great.

Hotel is right on the harbor and bicycle path near downtown. There isn't a beach here. It is NE near the marina about 3 blocks. Very nice hotel, grounds well maintained, can sit outside and read a book while watching the sun on the Lake. If you have any questions about the area, make them specific to get a good... More
