My wife and I decided to take a last minute trip to the Oshkosh Air Show and figured hotels would be raising their prices to an extreme rate. Most of them within the Oshkosh area did indeed do just that, so my wife started to look elsewhere. With Appleton being so close, she started to look in the area and found the Grandstay to be rated one of the highest and was very affordable.
When we arrived, the staff were very pleasant, friendly and Jason, the Sales Manager was very helpful in helping us with some ideas for the best places to grab some delicious grub. He lead us to a place called the Stone Cellar Brew Pub and the food was awesome as was their very own brews. If you plan to visit the region, this is where I would eat and make sure you order their brew flight and sample everything they make!
Back to the hotel... As I mentioned, the staff was great, but it gets better. The rooms were clean, roomy and the beds were comfortable as well which seems to be an issue for other hotels, even those that are far to expensive. More and more places are starting to provide larger complimentary breakfasts that include; eggs, potato of some kind, bacon and/or sausage, waffles, cereals, juices, muffins, etc and the Grandstay was no exception.
We would definitely return to the Grandstay and your next trip to the Appleton Region should include a stay at the Grandstay!
