“The Blush is Off The Rose.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We were disappointed in this hotel considering how nice other Holiday Inns are. It is very evident in places that this building is past it's prime. They are remodeling the cafe but the whole place needs it.
We really didn't like the inside room overlooking the common area. We were kept awake by folks talking as they sat at the tables. They weren't being loud but we had to turn the a/c fan on to cover the noise. The hotel seemed far from everything in town too. Perhaps if we knew the town better we would find short cuts. Overall we've stayed at better and far worse. The people were nice and the rooms clean but worn.

Thank you for your feedback. These comments are very important to us and had we known sooner maybe we could of moved you away from the common area so you could of enjoyed yourself. We will be doing more renovations once the current project is completed. We certainly want you to stay with us again.

This hotel was really nice. We stayed in an average room and the staff were great in every aspect. First we they assigned us to a room on the second floor and since they do not have an elevator we asked for a first floor room. They gave us two options and one of those we found out was a more expensive room yet there would not have been an increase in the rate.
They do not only have a breakfast bar but a restaurant so that if you do not wish to have anything from the bountiful selection you can order from the restaurant.
We enjoyed our time there and would recommend this Holiday Inn as one of their better ones.

Room Tip: It all depends upon your preferences. I do not use the pool and wanted a quieter room so I mentione...

I happy your stay was a memorable one and the staff was accommodating. An elevator would be a great asset to our hotel and we've been looking into plans for adding one. I also want to thank you for your time to write a review. We hope you will make us your first choice the next time you visit Fond du Lac Wisconsin.

We stayed at this HI last week. They are going thru a restaurant reconstruction which should be done late this year, but the rooms have been updated. Quite nice actually. I was a little worried driving up to it since it was an old style Holiday Inn, 2 stories, long hallways, etc. but the front desk folks were very informative and friendly. Breakfast was ok, hot and cold choices. The pool appeared to be clean. We would stay here again if the opportunity arose.

Yes, this is an older property and we do continue to update areas so it is fairly nice for it's age. I hope the removation of the restaurant and bar wasn't to much of an inconvience to you. It's going to be very nice when it's complete. As you can see from most of the reviews, we do have a friendly caring staff which is so important to our guests. I thank you for the kind words and the time to write. We hope you'll be in the area again soon.

Get a room with door to pool area...we'll worth a couple extra $'s. Kids have a blast with quarters and swimsuits and go to bed tired. Food not bad also. Restaurant and bar currently under renovation so you can eat by the pool area as a bonus. God parking close to rooms.

Glad to hear your family had a great time at our hotel. There are only 4 rooms like the one you had and they are usually booked every weekend. The spacious Indoor Recreation Center does offer a lot to the family traveler. We hope to see you again this year and thank you for taking the time to write a nice review about our hotel.

Upon opening the window curtains I discovered we had a view of a wall. Room 200 should be charged at a lower rate. If you stood to the far left you could see perhaps a quarter of the pool area.

Otherwise the room was nice. The inclusion of microwave and refrigerator was a pleasant surprise. Indoor pool area was huge and seemed well kept up. Overall the experience was good, but the wall view left a sour taste.

Thank you for the nice review and I feel bad that you had to get one of the only rooms with a bad view. I do agree that we have a very spacious pool area which is nice for families. We do have a lot of amenities in our rooms which are always nice to have. I hope that you will stay with us again and we will do our best not to put you in the room with no view. Again I thnak you for the nice review and hope we can over come thaat bad taste.

My dad and I have stayed in this hotel twice and have loved it! We especially love the friendly service by all of the staff. We always refer the the front desk guy as "our main man, Brad". He is always so helpful! He's the man! I also enjoy the pool area with hot tub, the restaurant, and this strange collection of extremely old books that can be found around the hotel! I've seen books dating back to as old as 1905 on the book shelves there. It is quite a collection and I really appreciate seeing it! Brad told me that most of the books were left there by people who have stayed there, and that he's even seen people recognize that a book was there's from a previous stay and take it back. Very cool! But anyway, I love this hotel. The staff makes you feel like family. They aren't there to rip you off,they will always tell you of an opportunity to save you money or make your stay better! We had a maintenance problem in our room once and it was fixed immediately.

It is great to hear that you always have a positive experiece at our hotel. I agree with you that it is the staff that makes the difference and I'm very thankful I have such a caring dedicated team. The book collection is a combination of locals donating them and from guests so if you would like to bring a few your next trip we welcome you to do so. We thank you for the very nice review and make sure the next time your visiting, you stop and say Hi.

After an issue with another hotel, I was able to check in the same day I needed a room. After the WI Tough Mudder, all I needed was a place to relax and recover. Staff is friendly and the rooms have been recently updated with modern furnishings. Always hesitant to stay at a Holiday Inn (since the Express versions have more modern upgrades), but it was a nice surprise. Food was good and you get bkfst coupons. Bar was spacious and inviting.
