“What a pleasant surprise!!!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Spectacular service!!! I mistakenly left a small personal article in the room. When I discovered about 1 month later, I called the hotel. Immediately spoke with Misty Brown, executive housekeeper. She had instant knowledge of the item (seriously, within 5 seconds of describing it). She offered to bring it to the post office that afternoon. I received it within 2 days.

The room was clean and comfortable. The location on the river was much better than expected. The Ground Round restaurant was busy (good sign for a hotel restaurant) and had great atmosphere on the outdoor deck. Overall excellent experience. I would drive out of my way (well, within reason) to stay here again. Thank you Best Western.

This hotel was re-opened in April 2013. The rooms are beautiful, thoughtfully appointed, and extremely comfortable. Check out the lighting in the ballroom, the original art in the hallways, historical photos of Oshkosh, etc. Don't miss a chance to stay here!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us. I am glad that you found the hotel to your liking and your room comfortable. Because I work for the hotel, and was a part of the rebuild, I am biased on how the hotel looks so its great when a guests points out how awesome the banquet room chandeliers look as well as all the original local artists pictures in our halls. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the near future.

Best Western has a nice central location in the small city of Oshkosh. My room had a nice enough view of the city. It's close enough to decent restaurants and they have plenty of local advice to give you to make the most out of your stay. The staff is very courteous and helpful. The rooms are very well maintained and the bathrooms are extremely clean! Which is always a plus in a hotel business. I've stayed at other Best Westerns and they always live up to their reputation.

Beautiful room, clean, comfortable. Great price (corporate). Needed to leave before breakfast served and was provided a "to go" breakfast of water, fruit, muffin. Had pizza delivered to room and called front desk for silverware and that was sent up to the room. Ground Round restaurant within hotel (did not try).

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the water which is a nice view

This hotel was just redone. The rooms and lobby are very nice. The attached parking garage entrance is like a ski ramp and you come into the complex on the 2nd floor. Hotel is on the Fox River on southern part of city about 1 mile from UW Oshkosh

The staff, the rooms and location of this hotel is very good. The lounge was good and bartenders happy. The breakfast buffet was lacking. I would pay more for a better breakfast. If you have time the local has many little gems to patronize. However, the overall experience was very good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.
