Wisconsin Rapids institution. Great place to stay if you have town doings. The pizza in the bar was great as well on another visit. I think they take pets although I did not have mine with me on this visit.

Either they were under staffed or something, but it was the worse service ever, didn't get my appetizers until the main course we had a party of 12+ others were served after about 45 mins within the party, my tab was seperate but because I was sitting at the table where a customer was not satisfied my order was also...

This review is for the restaurant only. The Mead has traditionally been the best place to eat in Rapids, and it's still true even with new management. Everyone enjoyed their main, the salad bar is adequate although I would not recommended it as a only dish, and the beer selection is quite good. Some of the salads were a bit... More

The staff was very friendly, the room was clean but basic. The pool area was very nice. The water was warm and the hot tub was big. The catered food was less then stellar. The hot water takes a very long time to flow to your room. Overall not bad for a conference stay.

When I checked in, I asked for a couple extra coffee packets for my room. Each day I stayed they brought me a few extra coffees. It was really nice to have and I didn't need to ask. The bar staff is friendly and the food is fantastic. Me and My Coworkers really enjoy our extended stays at Hotel Mead.

Stayed in a suite... Checkin was fast. Employees were courteous. The room appeared clean however the curtains were falling down, difficult time in controlling the temperature in the room. Furnishings seemed dated. Wifi was slow. Onsite restaurant was average as well.

We enjoyed our stay. Very Quiet, close to restaurants, great staff, clean facility, comfortable bed. Would recommend to friends and family. Bar and restaurant looked nice but we wanted to go to a close by restaurant so did not try them.

Had a business meeting and typically stay at the Sheraton, Marriott or Hilton. The staff was incredible and the room was wonderful. Excellent restaurant may it even a more pleasant stay. The room rate and the quality of service was outstanding. I will be back!

Stayed here 2-1/2 weeks while on business. The location was excellent for me (2 minutes to the job site). Comfortable room. Everything worked (i.e., TVs, HVAC, refrigerator, microwave). Bed was comfortable, and staff friendly. Never tried the bar or restaurant. I would certainly return if my job called me back to Wis Rapids.

I recently had a retirement party for my husband at the Hotel Mead. Several family members came from out of town and stayed at the Mead. It was a wonderful experience.
