“LOOKS BRAND NEW!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Our family has stayed here many times before. We have been satisfied in the past, but couldn't help but notice how much work had been put in to make the place look brand new. Our hostess, Niki, has always been so helpful and friendly. She remembered us by name and made our welcome so much more special. Our family had two poolside rooms that have recently been remodeled and were very comfortable. The pool temp was just right and we all had a great time in it. The new breakfast area located in the adjoining restaurant is extremely roomy, very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Everything in this Inn is very clean and well kept. We all enjoyed our stay and will anxiously await our next visit.

Room Tip: There are nice poolside/poolview rooms handy for the family and there are nice quiet rooms away from...

The overall facilty appeared nice and appeared to be updated, but as soon as we walked in the room we noticed a foul odor. At first I thought it was the smell of new carpeting, but when I got into bed it permeated the beding as well. it was so strong it made my eyes water and I had to remove the top cover from the bed in order to sleep.

The staff at this hotel were wonderful. Very accommodating! The pool area was awesome, very clean and we loved the poolside room! My sister and I take our grandkids over night when we come to town and we both agree that we have found a wonderful new place to stay!!

My family booked a pool side room on the 1st floor. The room had two queen beds, the room and bathroom were of ample size. The hotel looks to be older and a little worn. Lighting in the lobby, breakfast area and our room seemed to be a little dim. The hotel staff from check-in to check-out were very friendly. Plenty of parking in the lot. The pool area was very neat with the glass roof and accommodating with lounge chairs and tables. Nice pool and hot tub. Our room was quiet throughout the day and night.

We very much enjoyed our stay here and have been at this property in earlier years when it was owned by a different hotel chain. The salt water pool is very nice, the fitness room very small, and staff very nice. I would agree with the previous reviewer who stated he/she was disappointed in the price list you'd be charged if you take items... yet too, sadly I wonder if it is there because too many folks have taken items from the rooms. Very sad, but plausible reason for the sign. The one recommendation I would have is that if there is any way to request a room that didn';t used to be a smoking room. We got a room that clearly at one time was a smoking room and still had the smell of smoke.

Room Tip: Again if possible, request a room that has always been non-smoking

Thank you for taking time to review your stay!

I am with you on the non-smoking rooms! Unfortunately when guests check in paying with cash or even credit cards, if they are a smoker they do not think we can notice it. The rooms are then cleaned and re-cleaned, carpets are shampooed and the room is aired out with the windows open for a minimum of 2 days, unless we are unable to due to being sold out.

We have remodeled all of the sleeping rooms and that should have gotten rid of the past smoke smell but unfortunately we do not know until they check out and it's too late!

When the hotels supply all the little bottles of soaps, shampoos, etc., they are purchased in bulk at an enormous expense. And when the guests really like those brands that are popular, they seem to come to the front desk or stop a housekeeping cart repeatedly to gather more. That's 1 reason many hotels are steering away from those costs to focus more on your stay.

When I have "out-of-town" family (or, friends) visiting, are not familiar with Appleton and know what kind of dollars they can afford and yet get a great "bang-for-their-buck", (and maybe have kids) it's THIS place !!! The owner(s) take pride in their franchise and have proved it over the years. Renovations, new carpeting, fantastic pool area (salt-water, NO chlorine, want a skin freshener instead?), small child's arcade. Very nice restaurant attached, great menu & prices.
I'd be embarrassed if I recommended a place they'd thoroughly enjoy (for their money, again) and this place has always met the bill. Now, when they come to visit since, they make their own reservations there without calling me for a recommend.
