My family booked a pool side room on the 1st floor. The room had two queen beds, the room and bathroom were of ample size. The hotel looks to be older and a little worn. Lighting in the lobby, breakfast area and our room seemed to be a little dim. The hotel staff from check-in to check-out were very friendly. Plenty of parking in the lot. The pool area was very neat with the glass roof and accommodating with lounge chairs and tables. Nice pool and hot tub. Our room was quiet throughout the day and night.

We very much enjoyed our stay here and have been at this property in earlier years when it was owned by a different hotel chain. The salt water pool is very nice, the fitness room very small, and staff very nice. I would agree with the previous reviewer who stated he/she was disappointed in the price list you'd be charged if you take items... yet too, sadly I wonder if it is there because too many folks have taken items from the rooms. Very sad, but plausible reason for the sign. The one recommendation I would have is that if there is any way to request a room that didn';t used to be a smoking room. We got a room that clearly at one time was a smoking room and still had the smell of smoke.

Room Tip: Again if possible, request a room that has always been non-smoking

Thank you for taking time to review your stay!

I am with you on the non-smoking rooms! Unfortunately when guests check in paying with cash or even credit cards, if they are a smoker they do not think we can notice it. The rooms are then cleaned and re-cleaned, carpets are shampooed and the room is aired out with the windows open for a minimum of 2 days, unless we are unable to due to being sold out.

We have remodeled all of the sleeping rooms and that should have gotten rid of the past smoke smell but unfortunately we do not know until they check out and it's too late!

When the hotels supply all the little bottles of soaps, shampoos, etc., they are purchased in bulk at an enormous expense. And when the guests really like those brands that are popular, they seem to come to the front desk or stop a housekeeping cart repeatedly to gather more. That's 1 reason many hotels are steering away from those costs to focus more on your stay.

When I have "out-of-town" family (or, friends) visiting, are not familiar with Appleton and know what kind of dollars they can afford and yet get a great "bang-for-their-buck", (and maybe have kids) it's THIS place !!! The owner(s) take pride in their franchise and have proved it over the years. Renovations, new carpeting, fantastic pool area (salt-water, NO chlorine, want a skin freshener instead?), small child's arcade. Very nice restaurant attached, great menu & prices.
I'd be embarrassed if I recommended a place they'd thoroughly enjoy (for their money, again) and this place has always met the bill. Now, when they come to visit since, they make their own reservations there without calling me for a recommend.

We had a fabulous time at the Best Western in Appleton. The hotel was very clean, loved the salt water pool, and the breakfast was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful when we asked questions about local attractions. Lee gave us great directions to find the local movie theater and recommended some wonderful places to eat. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and we will definitely recommend you to anyone who will be staying in the area!!!

I like staying at Best Western because I'm a rewards member. I have two small dogs, and its hard to find many hotels that take one dog, let alone two. It's $20/dog/night, so it can get a little expensive when I stay 2 or more nights. But overall, the hotel has great ammenities, food, and service.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay! YES we do accept small dogs only. I just have to explain the $20 pet fee. When you, the guest stay in the room with your dog, and then ultimately check out, we have to super clean and re-clean your room for the next guest who may stay in that room and may have pet allergies. Unfortunately, the charges are for that along with some of the little buggers that chew or dig and do cause damage when left alone. Especially with the brand new remodeling that we have done.

Please do not let that change your mind when staying here! We love having you feel at home with your tail wager(s)
