“Grand stay at the GrandStay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Had stayed in a GrandStay in Madison in June and was pleasantly surprised by the suite, service and affordable price. The GrandStay in LaCrosse is even more impressive due to the location being right down on the river. Everything downtown is within a mile or two walking distance. We only used the car a couple of times. The suite is large with two flat screen TV's. Morning walks along the river before breakfast are fabulous. Pool is a little small but there is plenty to do in LaCrosse so we didn't bother to use the pool anyway. Did use the hot tub one evening. If you are going during Oktoberfest you are located right next to the grounds. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a pleasant stay in LaCrosse. Lots of great bars and restaurants within walking distance.

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

After checking into GrandStay Residential Suites on 8/25, I decided to take shower. As I was taking shower, I noticed there was no rubber mat to place on bottom of tub and it was quite slippery. After shower, I asked the guest room attendant who was cleaning room across from ours, if I could get a mat for tub. She was very polite and said she would get me one. About 5 minutes late, she knocked on door and said there were no mats available. What ?? I said I would check at front desk. As I was leaving for dinner, I asked at front desk for rubber mat and clerk said none were available. I said the tub was very slippery and a rubber mat would be a nice safety item. She said other guests had mentioned about tubs being slippery. I told her if I fall in shower, I will be doing much more than mentioning how slippery tub is !! She said sorry ! How can a hotel be out of shower/tub mats? I think a simple mathematical calculation could be, if you have 55 rooms, you would have 90 tub mats to be able to switch out and replace ? This is not rocket science !
Guess things are run much differently in Wisconsin, than in other parts of the country.

Stayed at the GrandStay Residential Suites in LaCrosse WI. As with most GrandStay's hotel is in excellent condition. Room was very clean. 2-room suite is perfect for the business traveler with a separate sleeping and living/kitchen area with great value price. Plenty of room to spread out work and prepare for meetings. Staff was most helpful. Hotel has excellent locations right along the Mississippi, walking distances from parks. Great place to make you feel a little bit "at home" when on the road.

The hotel is very clean and comfortable with plenty of room. Continential breakfast was very nice. We arrived with a group of motorcycles so it was a convenient location to park the bikes and walk to the downtown bars for evening entertainment.

Trip was for a friend's re-union weekend. We reserved a wheelchair accessible suit with a roll-in shower. Surprised that the room was on the 4th floor.The overall floor space of the bathroom was spacious. The roll-in shower stall was small but had a drop down seat. There was no hand-held shower head. There was basically no counter space in the bathroom. There was a small shelf above the sink but not functional and blocked the view of the mirror. There was only one bed in the room and only the left side of the bed could be accessed by wheelchair. (The bed was very firm.) The kitchen area was fairly spacious with a sink, stove burner, dishwasher and a very small dorm sized refrigerator. The facility had a very small swimming pool and hot tub - both of which had a power lift for getting in/out of the water. The facility did not have any automatic door entrances which was a hassle. (the front door entry consisted of two sets of doors.) The continental b-fast was average - nothing out of the ordinary. The facility did allow pets. Front desk staff did not seem to go out of their way to make accommodations. Facility is conveniently located near the river walk and downtown La Crosse.

We booked Grandstay because of its number 1 rating on Tripadvisor.It is a nice property, conveniently located on La Crosse's waterfront, next to Riverside Park.Our standard suite room was fine,clean,nicely appointed,and big enough to be comfortable in.My issues:

-no exhaust fan in bathroom,a nice $110+ a night room should include an exhaust fan in the bathroom!

-pool and hot tub are a joke,we have never seen ones this small!

-breakfast area is small and cramped,breakfast was fine though

-kind of loud,but quieted down nicely after 10 pm

No dealbreakers here,but definitely some things that need improvement,especially for the number 1 hotel in La Crosse...

Thank you for choosing GrandStay. Your comments are very important to us and we appreciate the time given to review your stay. I’m pleased you enjoyed the location, suite type and cleanliness. I apologize you did not find the pool and breakfast area accommodating in size. The exhaust fan in the bathroom is a silent fan wired to the light switch. Operation of the exhaust fans have recently been inspected however if you had time to reach out to me and provide me with the suite number we can look specifically at this suite. We do our very best to exceed guest expectations and all of your comments are appreciated and shared with the entire La Crosse GrandStay Team.

With Hospitality,
Kristina Conca

We stayed here, based on the high rankings from Trip Advisor, for a get-away weekend with friends. The hotel was a nice facility with a separate bedroom (complete with door) from the living room/kitchen. The kitchen not only had a microwave and refrigerator, but also a stove, sink, dishwasher as well as dishes, silverware, and pans. The kitchen table also doubled as a work desk. There was a television in the living room and the bed room. Breakfast was so-so...pretty much the same as you get at a Holiday Inn Express or any other hotel with included breakfast. The Fitness Center consisted of a treadmill, elliptical, and a bike.

That all sounds fine, but the main reason we stay in a hotel is to sleep, and we left after one night to switch to another area hotel because the queen-sized bed was so unbelievably uncomfortable. It was lumpy, hard, and had worn edges to the point that it was a struggle not to roll out of bed during the night. All the amenities of the hotel weren't worth having a terrible night's sleep. By the way, we've traveled all over the U.S. and the world and have never before left a hotel early due to an uncomfortable bed...so be forewarned that if you want a good night's sleep this isn't the place for you.
