Best Western Appleton Inn
Ranked #7 of 25 Hotels in Appleton
Reviewed 2 December 2013

Our stay was satisfactory at this location, we will be back between Christmas and New Year's Eve. Breakfast was to be served until 10am but on Nov 30th cleanup began at 9:20am and by 9:35 am everything was removed, 3 people came in and nothing was available for them. Finally got heat regulated due to the hotel's new heating system. There was a lack of help in cleaning up garbage in the pool area, and breakfast area, garbage was overflowing. Salt water pool was great. Next time I hope poolside room means we can see the pool not the parking lot from our room. Staff was courteous and friendly, owner denied later checkout stating room was needed. Family member lives in Appleton and the next day we noticed fewer cars in lot so we could have left an hour or 2 later. Need more cleaning staff for the upcoming holidays. No place is perfect but we will try it again.

Hello, I am sorry for the inconvenience you faced during your recent stay during the Best Western Fox Valley Inn. Our website states that breakfast is served between 6:30 am to 9:30 am. During the check-in process, our front desk staff informs each and every guest that breakfast is served till 9:30 am. In regards to the poolside rooms, the rooms have 2 sets of window, one facing the pool and another one facing the parking lot.

Due to the nature of the busy season, our checkout time is 11:00 am, and we do need to be ready for the guest arriving by 3.00 pm.

I am really sorry for the inconvenience again and during your next visit on Christmas Eve. I will make sure all the troubles will be taken care of.

Stayed here for three days, rooms were clean, staff was friendly and the hotel overall was great. Great location in regards to places to eat and shop. You must check out the bar/restaurant on site at the motel. Very friendly staff, great happy hour deals and the food is excellent! The owner Scott was very friendly and runs a great place! Will stay there again!

I had excellent service from Lee when I had to change our plans and only stay one night. When I asked about changing our stay to only one night the two women and the desk said that I would have to call the 800 number since I booked online. I called the 800 number and they said that it had to be taken care of at the hotel. Lee was very accomodating and took care of our request. I will be staying again next time we take in a Green bay game.

This hotel has all the upgrades! Bob and Nikki have done so much to improve Best Western, Fox Valley Inn. New carpets throughout the building, the reception area is so pretty with the new carpets and desk. The pool is so bright with sky lights, green trees and plants, salt water pool and hot tub, they even have a special chair so handicapped guests can swim. The complimentary breakfast is very good with a generous amount to choose from in the updated restaurant. The rooms are roomy with new carpets, new white tile in the bathtubs, new granite sinks with all new fixtures, new bed coverings and the most comfortable beds and we love the pillows!! There are even rooms for pet lovers! Bob and Nikki have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable!!

Appleton is a small college town with not much to do except shop. I've been here a few times on business and every time I visit, I stay at this Best Western. The location is very convenient to restaurants and shopping. A nights stay is moderately priced for its location and the attributes this hotel furnishes. There is an indoor pool that allows you to swim year-round, they have a fitness room, guest laundry service and a full breakfast.
Although there are many new upgrades to this location, I can't see myself giving it more than 3 stars at the moment. Hand bar soap must be a premium because they only give you one per room. They have a bulk soap/conditioner dispenser in the shower. I've seen this in other hotels, yet some also come with a lotion option. This location did not have or offer lotion. The breakfast was complete with choices of eggs, meat, toast and waffels. The only problem was that the eggs, and meat were microwaved. A nice touch might be for them to have a cook on standby to make a few cook to serve omlets, etc.
Overall I would recommend a visit to this location if on business or visiting. The price is right and they continue to make improvements, which tells me they care.
