“Cheap, but you get what you pay for”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

The hotel seems like it is very poorly run and maintained. Pretty much everywhere you look you can see signs of disrepair. When we got in, we found that the bed had very dirty sheets with several old stains on most of the sheets. The employees were not really interested in helping out. It took a few times of complaining over a couple hours before we got them changed (they even tried claiming it was our fault). Later another family showed up to our room, as the hotel had double booked the room. It might be ok if you just need a cheap place to sleep for the night, but really you would be better off spending your money elsewhere.

This place is outstanding! It is a very clean, well-run hotel. There are lots of little touches that you don't find at most chain hotels. Popcorn & coffee in the lobby every day, air fresheners in all the halls & public areas, name-brand juice & cereal in the breakfast, to name a few. My wife and I stayed five nights, & really enjoyed the stay. The whole place was very clean, the staff were all very friendly, the pool & hot tub were great, and the price was unbeatable! It gets busy in Friday & Saturday nights, so it is a bit noisy then. Very quiet other nights, & it was nice having a fridge & microwave in the room. We will definitely stay here again if we go back to the area.

This hotel is clean, staff is friendly, and the free breakfast was very good. There is free coffee and popcorn in the lobby. There is a great pizza restaurant conveniently located next door. There is a small swim pool and a jacuzzi with extra towels in the pool area.

Room Tip: Great place for the price, I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly suprised.

Decent room. Some updates. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. The wi-fi didn't work which was disappointing. The staff wasn't very interested in helping. Good breakfast. Not bad for the price. They were 15 min. late with the wake up call and didn't call my friend's room at all.

I got a great rate for here on Priceline that was about $20 less than every other hotel. I was a little Leary at first but when I got to the room I was pleasantly surprised. It is a large room, very clean, nice large fluffy pillows on the beds. Front desk staff was very friendly, and they have a large popcorn machine in the lobby with fresh popcorn. Lobby smells great and it makes for a nice snack.

Room Tip: book your room on Priceline for a great rate!

For the price the Appleton is adequate. But it had some cleanliness issues in the hallways and the walls and trim are pretty shabby. Most disappointing was the spa, it was so overloaded with chlorine that we left with red eyes after only 20 minutes. The highlight was definitely the beds, very comfortable!
