Reasonably priced and very roomy. Clean and comfortable. Spent two nights and had a great stay. Would stay there again. Ample free parking. Had a great view of the lake from our room. The hotel location is excellent with good restaurants within walking distance.

Beautiful hotel! But, we were not able to check in until 3:30 PM as rooms were not ready. Went to the bar and waited 25 minutes for a drink. Once we checked in, I went to get ice and the bucket was full of water. Obviously the housekeeping staff never emptied it. This hotel needs additional staff! Especially since they... More

It was such a pleasure to see the wonderful remodeling job that was done to the rooms after this location was purchased by Best Western. I stay here once a year and had decided at the last visit that I would not return again do to the conditions. I will now recommend to friends again. It was a little pricey... More

Dear 871 Sheilag, I'm pleased to learn you appreciated our extensive $13 million renovation since its completion in May, 2013. Our ownership group (the University of Oshkosh Foundation and private local investors) desired to revive this property for the benefit of the community and local businesses. Based on our guest responses, we believe they have been successful in that endeavor.... More

I've stayed here twice, both times for eight days. You can't get a hotel of this quality at this price anywhere else. The local university sank a huge chunk of change into renovations and it shows. Nice views of the river as well. The lounge has impossibly inexpensive drinks. The pool is well kept.

Great Decor. Nice view of river and out to lake. Great location to walk to lots of restuarants on Main Street and along river. Shower and beds were great. Liked having small frig and microwave. Bar was also great and busy both times we have stayed.

This hotel has very nice rooms and the view on the bay side is beautiful. It is close to a park and within close walking distance for eatting, entertainment, and shopping. The Ground Round Restaurant located in the hotel has good food and the patio area is especially nice on a summer day.

Excellent service, had a beautiful corner suite overlooking river, nice amenities. Totally gutted and started over so has that "New Hotel" feel/smell. Right downtown Oshkosh so easy walk to shops and restaurants.

The hotel was just great. It was very clean, the restaurant had a great breakfast and we were given vouchers for breakfast. It was a very pleasant experience all around. The convention center was a very nice area for the wedding reception we attended and very easy to get to from our hotel room.
