“Wow, great place for a family!”
Reviewed 7 January 2011

We went for a family getaway over Christmas. The pool/slide was awesome and they maintained a family atmosphere. We had a 2 room suite with a king bed and pullout sofa. Loved the extra space. Breakfast was great. We will be back.

We have spent the last 6 years at this hotel for New Year's Eve with multiple families. Every year has been such a fun time - until this year. We will never go back. Here is what happened to us: When we checked in, we immediately went to the pool area to get a good table (there are not enough tables and chairs in this place so we always go early). The air temperature in the pool room was cool - maybe 65 degrees or so. There were two huge vents that were open and were blowing in cold air from outside. I went to the front desk and was told that the dehumidifier in the pool area was broken and that the vents were blowing to control the humidity. According to the woman at the front desk, "It was 116 degrees in there today." So call a repair person! Don't pump in ice cold air! She also told me it would shut itself off when it reached the right temperature. It didn't. She came in 10 minutes later and turned it off. Then, the pool area humidity level became unbearable. 30 minutes later, everything was dripping wet. I love heat, but the moisture was awful. Why they didn't get anyone over to fix it I don't know. They also should have cleaned the pool. There was dirt all over the bottom and it was disgusting!!! Also, the hot tub was pushing out cool water and only half of the jets were working.

Nonetheless, we decided to grin and bear it. This is our family tradition and is always a fun time. However, after an hour or so of relaxing by the pool with our drinks, a woman from the front desk came in and told all of us that we would have to either finish our drinks or dump them out. What??? We have been coming to this hotel for years and have NEVER had a problem with this before. Plus, it's New Year's Eve! The reason most of us are there is to relax and have fun. Having a drink in the pool area made the unbearable humidity and filthy pool a little more tolerable. That being said ... those of us in the pool area (multiple parties) decided to go and talk to the staff about their "rule". They absolutely would not bend. When we told them we had been coming here for years, having drinks in the pool area, and have never had an issue, they blamed the new owners. When we asked to speak to the new owners, they blamed the AmericInn corporation. (We have stayed at AmericInns all over the country and have never had an issue with this before.). Next, they said it was an Appleton city code that you can't have beverages by the pool. What??? There are hotels all over the city that allow beverages - we know because we called and asked. The manager at the front desk told us, "You are welcome to leave and we will refund your money." So, our party, and 3 other groups (6 rooms that we know of) checked out and went somewhere else. As our kids were taking our luggage to the car, they heard other people saying they were going to leave, too. Please note: we are not a rowdy group, just families wanting to enjoy New Year's Eve safely, in a comfortable, relaxing environment!

The AmericInn lost our business last night, and we will never go back. We have had birthday parties at this hotel, we recommend this hotel to friends and family, and we even pay for day passes and go there to swim sometimes. Not anymore. This hotel has changed, and not for the better.

This hotel was nice. The rooms were a little smaller than I would have liked. Also the beds were not very comfortable. The kids really enjoyed the pool and waterslide..however the slide is only open for like 3 hours a day. The free breakfast was good...The kids especially liked the make your own waffles! This hotel didn't have very good vending machine options and the front desk really couldn't help you out with anything you may have forgotten. The staff was friendly though.

I am disgusted. Went there with our two kids for a romantic getaway just to get away from home. While my fiance goes out with a friend for a cigarette, the front desk guy starts to hit on them, especially her. I got upset but let it go the first time. the second time, i called down and complained to him and told him i would let his manager know in the morning how he interacts with his customers. When I called to complain the next day how i felt angry and disgusted over this, and she felt borderline harassed, the manager said that Clint, the guy at the front desk, called her and told her that we were fighting and he thought it was ok. We absolutely were not fighting, and in no way was this "ok" for him to do. I told her this and she said curtly "Well ill review the tapes" and hung up on me. I called the next day (even though she said she would call me back) and she said she would do nothing because even though she didnt review the tapes, if we felt harassed we should have left.
I will never recommend this place to anyone. SCUM works there.

We stayed here for the State Baseball Tournament and found the motel to be extremely helpful and accomodating to all of us. Our baseball team, as well as many parents and fans also stayed here. They went above and beyond with meeting our needs, even though we were unclear as to how many nights we intended to stay. The rooms were very clean. The front desk was more than helpful. The pool area was clean and fun for all that used it. The commons area was nicely done. The breakfast area was more than adequate. The stay was a good one and we'd certainly not hesitate to stay here again.

  • Liked — The way that everyone went above and beyond to make our stay great.
  • Disliked — Nothing to dislike.

Reviewed 18 September 2007

We won an overnight stay here at a charity auction. The hotel is relatively new and clean with easy access off of Hwy. 41. The rooms were comfortable and quiet as the hotel is far enough off the highway. The pool was very warm... almost a hot tub without the jets. And we went down the water slide a few times which was fast and fun. They had an OUTSTANDING continental breakfast... just about anything you'd want, even make-your-own waffles!

Some of the minuses... If you're looking for something for nightlife, there's not a lot nearby. There's no bar in this hotel, although the hotel next door opened yesterday and I believe they have a bar in their restaurant. Also, if you're looking for a view, you won't find it here.

If you're in town on business or looking for a stop on your way back from Lambeau Field, the Americinn will be more than adequate. We liked it!

  • Liked — The continental breakfast and the pool w/ water slide.
  • Disliked — Location to nightlife.

My family stayed at the Americinn in Appleton, wi for 1 night in August and it was one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Our room was just a standard 2 queen room and it was huge! It was very nicely decorated and very clean. The pool area was awesome. It had a good size waterslide that my kids loved going down. The pool was huge for a smaller hotel and it also had a good sized hot tub. The only down fall to the pool area is that the waterslide on only on during the weekend. Luckily we stayed on a Saturday so we got to use it. They also have a breakfast room which we did not try because it was really busy there that weekend and it was pretty packed. This is a great hotel and I would book another room there again!

  • Liked — I loved how big the rooms where.
  • Disliked — I loved everything about this hotel!
