“This really was a Grand Stay!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I knew I was going to love this place the minute I walked in the door. I was immediately impressed by the front desk clerk who was so professional and friendly. Our room was on the second floor which I had requested. We had a private bedroom and separate living area complete with sleeper sofa and flat screen TV for our teenager. We had a full sized refrig for snacks, microwave oven, range and dishwasher. Large bathroom with full size tub and shower. Everything was spotless. Breakfast the next morning was kept well supplied even though I believe the hotel may have been full. I actually don't like staying in hotels because I never am able to sleep because of the beds, pillows, noise etc. I believe I slept better here than in my own bed! It was so quiet and the bed was so comfortable. I checked out other hotels in the Eau Claire area and picked this one because of previous reviews and competitive pricing. I am so glad I did. And it is close to everything. You won't be sorry if you stay here. I know I will be back.

Very good hotel and affordable rates for their 2 room suites - clean, quiet and friendly. Located close to main highways - Room internet not user friendly - lots of settings to do, etc. in the end I was not able to connect. There is a desktop computer on the first floor one can use. Nice small pool, clean, Breakfast could be better - lots of sugary items, bacon, boiled eggs.Otherwise, good choice.

Room Tip: ask for a room on the third floor.

We were doing a road trip through the Midwest and generally like to stay at Marriott's - especially Residence Inn facilities. We have never been disappointed at a Residence Inn. However, there were no Residence Inn or Fairfield Inn in Eau Claire. We used Trip Advisor to find The Grandstay Hotel as the best rated facility. It include a hot breakfast, which is one of the features we like about the Residence Inn. The Grandstay was great. The rooms were great, the hot breakfast was excellent and the front desk was a big help in getting other useful assistance. This the kind of stuff we seek out with Marriott. Apparently, Grandstay is limited to Wisconsin and some surrounding areas. If you are near one, its a great facility.

We almost didn't try to get a room at this hotel because from the outside it looked like it would be too expensive for our budget. I am so glad we went in to inquire about the rate. The rate was the same as the surrounding hotels, but the accommodations were superior to the other chain hotels. We had a spacious 2 room suite with a full kitchen and 2 flat screen TVs. The rate included wifi and breakfast. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. The location is just off the interstate, and there is shopping and restaurants within walking distance.

In Eau Claire with another couple (us and our toddler) and the suite was a good value for that.
Nice breakfast, with bacon, eggs and waffles, that they kept well stocked during the two mornings we were there.
They have a small playset for young kiddos, putting green and basketball court, those parts don't come through well on line.
One small complaint is that the pool is on the small side, nice but don't be planning to swim laps.

I stay at a lot different hotels because of the work I do. The GrandStay Hotel in EauClaire was an excellent choice and provided our crew with unexpected comfort and amenities.

Located near the Oakwood Mall, off US 53 and I-94, the four story hotel was clean, well kept and was staffed by friendly people.

For budgetary reasons, our crew often has to share rooms. What a surprise to find we were assigned two bedroom suites. And the single room given to us had a Jacuzzi in the suite.

I guess you'd call this place an extended stay facility because in addition to the two bedrooms, our suite had a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, cooktop and a counter top that doubled as an office work space.

The wired Internet connection worked well. The beds, linens and towels were all nice and soft. Plumbing worked well and the AC was subtle and efficient. Our room was quiet, despite the full house.

The complementary breakfast offered a number of hot and cold items. It was maintained regularly and got us started on the right foot each day.

The only negative feature I can mention is the somewhat smallish parking lot, which made it difficult to turn around our 14-foot trailer. Fortunately there was a large bank parking lot next door, where we leave our rig for a short time.

We've stayed in several EauClaire area establishments over the years, and the GrandStay is definitely one of the best in the area.

The hotel allowed a group of 11 teenagers to thunder up and down the hallway for hours, the noise did not end until midnight or later. Phoning the desk got us a polite reply and an empty promise to manage the problem. We politely asked for an adjustment on our bill and since we checked out Monday morning, 4 days ago the manager has not yet called to discuss any adjustment. This location is a management disaster.

The entire staff of the GrandStay deeply apologizes for the inconvenience during your stay. We have addressed the situation to ensure we are better serving all of our guests. I am hopeful that the problem was resolved to your satisfaction during out phone conversation and you can understand the reason for the delay in response. Our intent is to provide our guests with the best possible accommodations and although we fell short during your stay we feel that we have addressed the situation moving forward.
