“Lovely Boutique Hotel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

The Kress Inn is a lovely boutique hotel located on the St. Norbert College campus. The brick building echos the brick campus buildings across the street blending into the landscape. The lobby is welcoming with comfortable leather seating arrangements and a cozy fireplace. At check-in they have a basket of cookies on the counter that were a nice and delicious treat. The "snicker-doodles" were outstanding so I suggest you take one to your room for a late night snack. (okay, maybe more than one). At the elevator, they have a framed "thank-you" note from Sarah, The Duchess of York, who stayed there in 2002. Quite impressive. From 4:00pm-6:00pm Monday-Thursday they set out a small table with cubed cheese/crackers and a carafe of chilled white wine and a red that you can enjoy before dinner. Nice touch!

Stayed in room 313 which was a clean and comfortable corner room w/ a comfy queen bed. The room was equipped with an angled desk, easy chair, mini-fridge, mini-microwave, mini-pod coffee maker, good-sized bathroom with amenities and a second make-up vanity w/ sink and small closet to hang clothes. Refreshing to be able to open the windows too. In addition, in the morning they serve a deluxe continental breakfast in the breakfast room set with a make-your-own waffle-maker, assorted breads/pastries, cold cereals, instant oatmeal, juices, coffee & tea. Plus, a selection of individual yogurt portions, milk, cheese, cottage cheese, fruit, etc. to take on the run if you don't have time to eat there. It was a very clean and organized breakfast area with a mounted flat-screen tv to catch the news of the day. Free Wi-Fi, fitness room, lobby computer, newspaper,YMCA passes, and airport transportation are a few more complimentary amenities. No pool, however, they do offer the free YMCA passes.

So convenient to all Green Bay has to offer too. 10 minutes to Lambeau Field. Restaurants within walking distance. Enjoy!

Just loved this place! Elegant, friendly, wonderful amenities. They have the best home-made cookies, offer wine, cheese, coffee and hot cider in the lobby. The room is designed for comfort, especially the bed. Would love to come back!

Beautiful hotel! I have never stayed here, but when I have to book out-of-town speakers a place to stay for work, I try and put them here! They love it, and only have the most positive of comments!

A visit to St. Norbert College resulted in an unexpected overnight stay. I walked into the Kress Inn, and instantly I felt welcome. The staff was friendly, and I was given a room which was very well set up for my purposes with an efficient workspace for my computer, reading lamps with adjustable brightness, a comfortable bed, and a quiet peaceful atmosphere. Breakfast was available starting at 6:30 am, early enough to leave in time for my meetings.

We were looking for an affordable place to stay after a night Packer game. Kress had some availability so we checked both Trip Advisor and AAA for reviews. EVeryone had a great review and here is yet one other positive review. We got a AAA discount so was very affordable night's stay for us. It's about 6 miles from Lambeau field. We checked in and the front desk employee was very nice and friendly. The room was nice sized, very clean and very comfortable. Was nice to have not only the sink in the bathroom but one in another area, too. We didn't have to try and share the bathroom to get ready in the morning. All the staff we encountered were very nice. Continental breakfast was fine.

We will definitely stay there again.

I wanted to take a minute to share our gratitude for making our recent stay at the Kress Inn a memorable visit.

I believe the success of today’s business lies in the quality of the interaction one has with the people that represent the business – the employees.

Therefore it is with this basic premise that I share my personal “consumer” experienced with Sue and the Kress Inn.

You and the Kress Inn team should be thrilled to have Sue as your “point person”. She was instrumental in conveying the Kress philosophy from the moment my wife called to inquire on room availability and the book a subsequent reservation. Apparently my wife had several lodging considerations but after speaking with Sue, Lora was so impressed from her conversation with Sue that she simply booked our reservation at the Kress Inn. Sue also greeted us when we arrived to check-in, she was prompt, efficient, and genuine – she patiently answered each of our questions and was equally comfortable functioning as the DePere / Green Bay ambassador as our inquiries grew with each morsel of information Sue chose to share. Sue was helpful with driving directions, dining suggestions, “best place to park”, sites to consider, etc – a few brief minutes and we felt as if we were long time friends! Trust and rapport are difficult qualities to earn these days, but Sue created those feelings for us in the few minutes she chose to share with us.

Lora and I heeded each of Sue’s suggestions and found each one to be very useful as we found that each tip and referral she passed on contributed significantly to a wonderful visit to the Green Bay area.

The Kress Inn and associates played a big role in making our stay and visit to Green Bay a memorable one, thank you.

Room Tip: Ask Sue! She's a great ambassador
