I would definitely stay here again. Rooms are comfy. Staff is very helpful. The pool and spa area were also much fun for the family. The pool is smaller than some hotels, but certainly perfect for fun with small kids or even alone as we were the only ones there. The best part is the jacuzzi is very hot! So nice, as many places keep their spas at "warm", thus defeating the purpose. The lobby is tastefully decorated and there is a large breakfast area. One note to business travelers, if you have a secure system it may not work with the broadband here as there is an access page that must be agreed to first which did not have an up to date certificate. I called the internet provider and they were not able to help me bypass this, so my business computer would not allow a connection, however my personal laptop was just fine. Location is right near the Fox River Mall and room keys currently offer a 20% discount at Bennigans across the street or 15% at Fridays.

Thank you for taking the time to compliment our property! It is much appreciated! We are glad you loved the Jacuzzi. We always keep it at the perfect temperature for all our guests. We offer high speed internet through a wired connection in all our rooms, as well as wireless throughout the property. Sometimes wired connections work better with people's work computers is they have certain security settings. We are thrilled you took advantage of the key card discount. It can definitely be a nice addition to get a discount on your meal when you stay! Again we thank you for your patronage, and we hope to see you again soon!!

Anyone looking for an conveniently located, updated, very clean hotel with wonderful service in the Fox Valley should consider the GrandStay in Appleton. It is located within the hub of the mall area and has very easy access from the interstate. Lobby area extends into a very nice lounge area featuring a bar serving beverages and some snacks, as well as doubling as the area to enjoy a continental breakfast. Very nice hot tub, and a pool (very small). We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return for another visit in the future!

Very convenient - close to hwy 41- in an area with a lot of stores and restaurants. Maybe not as charming as the hotels downtown- but ideal if you are looking for something child friendly and reasonably priced. Parking very convenient. And when you want to go downtown - it was an easy 10 minute ride.

The room and bathroom are generously sized. The high ceilings make the room feel even more spacious. Bathroom has a large vanity area and good shower. Flat screen TV.

The indoor pool is small and attached to a large whirlpool. This was great for our family with several small children, but could be pretty crowded if the hotel was full.

The breakfast consisted of scrambled eggs, sausages, waffles, sweet rolls, cereal, yogurt, etc. The seating area is a decent size and we were easily able to get a table both days we were there. They kept the food well stocked. Only complaint - on Sunday morning the breakfast crowd was busier and by the time we ate at 8:30 - the garbage was overflowing.

We were on the first floor, which was a convenient walk to the pool and breakfast area. We did notice some noise from what we assume was the neighbors bathroom pipes. But for the most part - door slamming and talking noises were muted. Some noises from people walking overhead - so if that bothers you - there are elevators for the upper floors.

The front desk staff and housekeeping were all friendly and helpful. Would not hesitate to recommend to someone else.

Thank you for your recent stay, and for taking the time to share your thoughts about the hotel. We are thrilled to hear you liked our location along with our spacious rooms. The pool area is perfect for families with small children, and the large hot tub can definitely accommodate plenty of relaxing adults while the kids play! Our breakfast is always a hit with our guests and I'm glad you liked it. Nothing beats a hot breakfast fully stocked in the morning after a good nights sleep. I will pass along your compliments to our staff, who greatly appreciate hearing positive praise for their efforts! Thanks again, and we hope to see you again soon!

Ladies shopping trip looking for a great location and this hotel is that, priced like a two star but felt like a 3.5 star, nicely decorated large room and large bathroom vanity top, friendly staff that provided us with shopping discount coupons and shuttle to our dinner at carmello's (someone was available to drive us), coffee at breakfast was great and free wi-fi.

I've stayed in so many hotels because of my job and I've made my own list and the top on my list when it comes to choosing a hotel is the cleanliness and the friendly staff. The hotel provides complimentary breakfast which is a big plus and when I got there late at night after a long day at work the hotel had sandwiches and drinks for the guest. That was really nice. The rooms are super clean and large enough to do my pilates. I like the decor as soon as I walked in the lobby because of the very inviting seating arrangement. And lastly I asked the manager about bed bugs and he reassured me that they are very proactive about handling this problem and gave me details on how they handle this problem effectively. I was impressed.

Room Tip: very clean, newly renovated big size rooms.
