This is a solid place to stay with nice views of the water. Rooms have been recently updated and the wifi works well. The restaurant tied to the hotel also has excellent food. There is a nominal hotel discount at the restaurant (10%) associated with breakfast. The hotel is across the street from the convention center and there is a... More

Stayed at this property during graduation weekend from UW Oshkosh. We had a wonderful stay in this newly remodeled property. The hotel was sold out for graduation but it was very quiet and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful and rooms were very clean and nicely decorated. We ate breakfast at the Ground Round both mornings and we were... More

My family (and a young guest) recently stayed in a corner room suite with a whirlpool and fireplace. We had a great view of the river and all of the early bird fishermen (and fisherwomen!) heading out, looking for action. The room was perfect. Our 12-year-old celebrated her birthday here with a friend and they had a great time in... More

The hotel staff and accommodations were excellent. The room was clean and nicely updated. It overlooked the golf course and rolling hills. We though it would be a great wedding location. We also woke up refreshed. My husband has a bad back and said the bed slept great. I thought it was very comfortable too which is unusual

I had no idea this level of a hotel was connected to the Oshkosh Convention Center. This rivals any of the larger city convention center hotels I have ever stayed in. Guest services were incredibly efficient and friendly. The room was well appointed with all the convenience you expect and then some. Great view from my 8th floor room as... More

Traveled for business, where I just want a clean room with some view and the ability to get in/get out fast. The room exceeds normal nationwide quality at any of the mid-upper chains such as Marriot, Hyatt, etc. The one negative - I do not think there is room service, although my check in was so late I am not...

Dear James R, Thank you for your detailed review and being a loyal customer.
