Being someone constantly assaulted by chemicals that result in sinus misery, migraines, and auto immune flare ups....I was stunned to get off the elevator on the 4th floor and smell NOTHING. It smelled so clean and 'real'. My room gave me the same experience. It was spotlessly clean and inviting and my nose was not assaulted. And the bed was the best I've slept in. I sought out the mattress type in order to buy one for home. I slept like a baby and woke completely refreshed with no body aches.

I was pleased that my room was ready on checkin. The bed was comfortable, There were more than enough towels in the bathroom. I liked the fact that there was an easy chair as well as a desk chair in the room. The pictures on the walls were a nice touch. Parking was very convenient in the structure right at the hotel. All the staff from housekeeping to the waitstaff to the checkin staff were very pleasant.

This hotel is nice and rooms are clean. The service was amazing and very helpful and friendly staff. My son had an accident on Saturday and I wanted to get more rest Sunday before we checked out and I requested for later check out and they let us stay a lil longer (not pass 1pm). The pool just need to be more heated in the winter for sure but my kids enjoyed it either way!

Paulacordita, thank you for staying with us and for providing this excellent review of our hotel. I am so pleased you commented the service provided my our team members was friendly and exceeded your expectations. It was great of you to note the cleanliness of the rooms as our housekeeping team members work hard to provide this result. Concerning your comment about pool temperature, this is something I will continue to monitor with feedback from other guests. I believe pool temperature is somewhat of a “personal preference issue” where it is difficult to make it right for everyone. It would be similar to guest preferences for pillows and beds as some guests like them firm and other guests like them soft. We keep our pool temperature at 84 degrees. According to the United States Water Fitness Association, the water temperature at the average indoor multi-purpose pool in the USA is 84 to 86 degrees. We are, in fact, on the lower end of that. I will continue to solicit comments of our guests and if we find we get additional comments to make it warmer, we will surely do so. The next time your travels bring you to Oshkosh, we hope you choose to stay with us again. Safe travels!
