There are new owners at this hotel and the food is terrible. We have been having our Easter Sunday Brunch here for 10 years. Everything was wonderful. Went this year and my daughter did not even eat. The food looked to be brought in from a fast food place. Will never return

We have enhanced our menu options in the Café Mulino and were showcasing a few of those during the recent holiday buffets. I sincerely apologize we did not meet your expected standard. We certainly take your comments serious and will address accordingly during future large events. More

Stayed for the 1st time for a weekend politically related conference. Rates were not cheap but not awful either relative to other conference suited hotels. One evening meals was part of the conference, and was relatively small but adequate if consuming enough beer. Room was large, nice and clean. Nothing marred the room experience. Stayed in the north tower area... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback about the hotel. Our breakfast buffet has changed somewhat and we are fine tuning some of the favorite items, look for more on it as we develop it in the near future. I apologize for the coffee, that should be one of the first questions our servers ask. We are... More

This was our first stay at this hotel and based on other comments here we did not know what to expect. The location we thought was a little obscure at first, but I'm thinking that was the GPS and it was late at night. We arrived at the back of the building (tower) that at night looks like it could...

We are so glad you were surprised and enjoyed your recent stay. The renovations have been completed in the West Wing as we work our way to the Atrium Tower. We are looking at the option of microwaves as well, thanks for the suggestion. I will relay the kind words to Gale and Tom, the front desk clerks you mentioned.... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip ti Wisconsin Rapids. The hotel is nicely located with a onsite restaurant (most hotels in the area do not have this option).

food was good at the café but Sandy the waitress was more interested in chatting with the bartender than taking care of us. Will try it again in a couple weeks, lets hope for the best. we live about 5 miles from the café. 1/26/2014 at 7:50 pm

I have stayed at the Mead several times a year for the past 10 years, most recently this month. I had considered staying elsewhere due to what I perceived as a decline in the overall value in the past few years. I am glad I chose to return. There has been a significant improvement in the overall quality of the... More

Stayed here for almost 2 weeks and it was like home. We had a large room with a great view. We wouldn't stay in any other hotel in the area! Only thing that could be improved is an upgrade on the TV's.

I grew up in this area back when the paper industry here was booming. The Mead Inn was the place to go, but unfortunately, times have changed. My 83 year old mother and I shared a room at the Mead in October. We asked for a room in the newer part of the hotel but they said they were booked.... More

Looks like a cheap 1970's era hotel from the outside, but we were pleasantly arrived when we checked in. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was on the top floor (5th) and when we walked in we felt like we were walking into a deep freeze. Brrr. We tried to turn off the air and then went out... More
