The rate was very reasonable for a king bed and a living/sitting area with microwave and refrigerator. Two TV's. We ate breakfast at their restaurant. It was very good, delivered quickly, and reasonably priced. If this hotel were in a larger city the prices... More

The hotel is great stay - big beautiful lobby and GREAT STAFF EVERYWHERE - my only issue is that the restaurant and bar close really early (around 9pm) and when we were coming back from a very long day of working it was a bummer to have to leave again to eat/drink something

For decades, I have been putting up business and personal guests at the Hotel Mead. It is a great place to stay or to have your next conference. There is one restaurant and one bar in the hotel. Ample parking. Nice pool. All accommodations one would expect.

I last stayed at the Mead 12 years ago and I would have to say it's as nice now as it was then. From what I recall I believe they have also reduced room rates since then as well. When I first went to book rooms it came up $170 and I figured that was per room and wasn't shocked... More

Only stayed one night as I was in town for business. I had wanted to stay here in the past as it seemed like it would be the nicest property in the area but it was booked (State Cross Country Meet).

Thank you for the review on our hotel, so glad you were able to finally stay with us. This time of year is neat to be here for the decorations in the Atrium Tower and the snow outside.

For the price the hotel is a bargain. It was once perhaps a luxurious place to stay but today you get a nice big room and dining on premises. Breakfast was not free, but you can order something for a very reasonable price. The rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and I would happily stay here again.... More

Thanks for the kind review. We have set the prices for everything from the hotel, to the restaurant to the tavern very reasonable because we want everyone to enjoy their stay. No reason for high priced items when many people are budget conscious. Glad you found us and definitely hope to see you again soon. More
