We recently stayed in a suite at the Best Western in Oshkosh and it was amazing! It had a great view over looking the river and everything was very modern and new! Has a great restaurant and bar located on the first level with reasonably priced food and beverages along with an outdoor patio on the water! Would definitely stay there again!

The hotel underwent a $$$$ renovation. It looked lovely and was quite comfortable. Love the fluffy towels. Room had nice conveniences. My only dislike was transporting luggage to and from the parking garage. The doors were too difficult to open, and keep open while attempting to get the luggage into the building. It would have been nice if they put luggage carts there for easy access or had a bell man to assist on the main lobby level, instead of encouraging people to use the parking deck. Another issue I had was the air conditioning. It did not function well in the room. In other words, I spent a sleepless night in a too hot room. I didn't discover this until 1:00 a.m. At 6:00 a.m., I went to the front desk to complain. Strangely, when I got back to my room, the air conditioner was blowing cold air like crazy. I believe there is a main switch and they turned it on because the thermostat then read "occupied". This was really disappointing. Also wish they could deliver the morning paper to the room instead of having to go retrieve one in the lobby.
The hotel restaurant food was good and the service was attentive and it as busy. Breakfast was included but you had to eat between 6:00 and 9:00. On vacation, I doubt many people want to be up eating at that hour.

Great place, we just had an issue with room cleanliness. We found a few things in our room that should have been taken care of by housekeeping (someone's underwear under the vanity, and a pile of peanut shells under the bed). My brother's room had a swimming suit left behind a chair in the corner of the room. It just seems that if two of the three rooms that our group had weren't cleaned properly, there may be an issue here. All staff were great, and very helpful. I would stay there again, but they need to work on their cleaning.

We were looking for a place to stay close by for Rock USA and saw that this hotel had good reviews. So we booked it, and it was AWESOME! Everything smelled new and clean. The lobby was beautiful. The bathroom was spacious but we could not find a fan in the room. The bed and the pillows were soft, and the towels were fluffy.The view of the river was nice except some the parking garage was to the right of the view. And the parking garage had a very bad incline to get up to it- hate to see what that looks like in the winter. The breakfast was great! Lots of options to choose from except we wished they could have included chocolate milk. Lots of space in the room. Will stay again.

This hotel offered a discount for our stay and is connected by a skywalk to the convention center where the banquet for this event was held. Loved everything about the hotel/stay...... from the comfortable beds to the outdoor bar area next to the Fox River to the full free breakfast to the friendly staff...... and would highly recommend it to anyone!

I was at the Best Western Premier for a conference July 7 to 10. The hotel has been redone is everything was great. The room was nicely laid out, the pool/hot tub area was clean. With the hotel being newly remodeled everything was very clean. The hot breakfast that was included with the room was probably the best I have had. Scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, toast, bagels, muffins, waffles, fresh fruit, different juices, coffee and more all set up as a buffet style and the staff kept everything full and fresh.
All the staff was very friendly and helpful.
It was a very nice stay and made the conference more enjoyable.
The Ground Round Restrauant that is one the first floor of the hotel had excellent food and a patio that is right on the Fox River. It was nice sitting out there to eat or have a drink and watch the boats going by. They also had daily specials on the menu.
