Traveling with a dog and without an itinerary isn't recommended, and we arrived in Oshkosh in the late afternoon and started our somewhat random lodging search with a call to Fairfield Inn and Suites. The woman who answered the phone seemed almost too delighted to accommodate us, and when we noticed only two other cars in the parking lot we had an idea of the reason for her exuberance, although she was a genuinely engaging person.
Our expectations were not high for a motel room next to a busy highway in a mile-long commercial strip of fast food and chain stores, but our room obviously had been recently decorated, and tastefully so, with a bold color scheme and contemporary, functional furnishings. The bed and linens were upscale, the bathroom large and bright. Although our room was not far from the pool, noise from the families using it was never a problem as it occasionally was from the nearby ice machine. The continental breakfast had a large selection with many healthful choices.
As a bonus, this facility is literally pet friendly. The front desk clerk was a dog owner and lover, and the housekeeper asked to meet our dog and made a fuss over her.
