I spend a lot of time in hotels and have stayed at many of this area's hotels. By the area, I mean Stevens Point down to Plover.
This one beats all of the other area hotels when considering all factors.
It is very similar to the Hampton Inn in terms of it being new, clean, well-decorated, and quiet, and having a fridge, wall-controlled thermostat, and good breakfast. Clean is an understatement. Comfortable is an understatement. Quiet is an understatement. You will not hear other doors closing in the mornings, which I can't say for any other hotel in the area except maybe the Hampton Inn. Like the Fairfield and unlike the HI Express, it is bright and cheerful. (HI Express is dark) A king room is standard, unlike the Fairfield.
But it also has a pub with beer, wine, pizza and other bar food. And, it has pool tables, darts, video games, etc... Didn't use any of this, but noted it was there and will use them. The rooms have flat screen TV's, unlike the Hampton which are tube TV's. Also, it does have laundry facilities (did not use, but saw them), unlike the Hampton which does not. Laundry costs more than the Fairfield or HI Express.
The shower is hot, but the pressure isn't quite as strong as the Fairfield, which has the best water pressure of all area hotels. The bed was easily the most comfortable of any of the hotels I've stayed in here in this area. Temperatture control is similar to the Hampton, and above all others.
The staff is friendly and helpful. They have cookies at night (better than Fairfield's - soft), and the bar is active, but not noisy and can't be heard from the rooms. I do not drink much so I didn't go over there, but it is nice that the hotel never feels dead.
Did not use the pool or the gym. but the pool is above average - water is not quite heated enough. Wifi is faster than most, but not quite as fast as the Holiday Inn hotels, which are the fastest. The Fairfield and Hampton are the slowest in the area.
While the staff isn't as customer-oriented as the Fairfield (no hotel is), they are far from rude and are actually quite accessible, unlike what a recent review claimed.
No doors banging like the HI Express...
No strange decorating like the Comfort Suites in Stevens Point...
Better breakfast than most, except HI Express (hard to beat those cinnamon rolls).
It is the only hotel in the area with both an included breakfast and a restaurant.
Just a great stay - may be the best I've stayed at in this star rating.
