“Work Related Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

I was here from 17Jan to 1May for work. The staff, and I, didn't expect this length of stay and so the first few weeks I had to move out of pre-booked rooms. They did a good job and then rearranged bookings so I could stay in one place. Everybody lives local so good knowledge of restaurants, stores, etc. That length of time gets old, small fridge and microwave as opposed to a house. Cleaning is well done daily by friendly staff. Large bed with extra room, plenty of storage and closet to hang clothes.Indoor pool and hot tub, small exercise room. Most call me by name now and are friendly.
Mostly quiet but some weekends have 'events' people booked(hockey, fishing, hunting, card players every Wed, etc) Some days may have laborers staying with occasional door slam and clanking of beer bottles.
Close enough to access Green Bay and other east side cities.
YES, I would come back here if in the area.

Room Tip: Use the top(3rd) floor, no overhead footsteps in the night. Front/entrance of building faces East a...

Thank you for making our visit to Shawano a pleasant experience. Your front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. The beds were very comfy and much appreciated after a full day of meetings and such. The breakfast had a nice variety and was well maintained. No having to wait for the waffle machines and everything was so fresh and appetizing. We loved the relaxing time in the well maintained pool and hot tub. We'd definitely recommend this particular hotel to anyone traveling for whatever reason. Straight A report card from us.

While this hotel wasn't fancy pants, it was clean and the staff was friendly. We stayed there for two nights, and the bed was comfortable and clean. The pool and hot tub were also well maintained. I didnt have the breakfast bar because I don't wake up early enough, but it looked like it had all the hotel continental breakfast basics. I did have several cups of the coffee in the lobby, and it was fairly good coffee.

We had a room on the third floor. The wifi signal was weak and internet was super slow. The room was clean and comfy. We were able to park our motorcycles under the overhang by the front door. The breakfast average. we would stay here again.

My mom and I were unlucky at the Comfort Inn in Shawano. We checked in early to get ready for a wedding. I had just plugged in my curling iron and BAM! A huge bang and the lights went out in the bathroom. We blew a fuse. I called the desk, and 20 minutes later, I called again. Finally, after 30 minutes the lights came on again. We could use the bathroom. Except the faucet squirted a stream of water right at you. You had to stand to the side to use it. That night, using the bathroom in the middle of the night, I noticed a white light (like lightening) flashing near the hair dryer. I unplugged it. I figure this must be what fried my curling iron.
The room was comfortable otherwise. Although 8 hard pillows on 2 queen beds is probably an overkill. If only we'd just asked for a different room right away.

This hotel and staff perfectly met the needs of our extended family who was getting together for an important family event. They informed us weeks ahead that the pool would be under construction, and were very accommodating in allowing us to use the breakfast room as a gathering place for some family time instead. The staff and management is top notch and all about service to the customer. Would certainly stay here again. The other properties we considered in Shawano aren't even close to the caliber of this hotel. Thank you for a wonderful time!

This hotel is simple & basic, yet it met our needs and I found it to be a nice place to stay overall. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable, and the pillows soft. Comfortable pillows and beds are very important to me when staying in a hotel and I was pleasantly pleased with this hotel. My only complaint about the hotel room itself was that it did not come with a mini-fridge and the water pressue was too low for the type of shower head. The water didn't spray out of the shower head like it should....it just ran down, because of low pressure. But, the water was at least hot and the bathroom was clean.
The hotel offers a nice pool. However, they could do something to improve the noise level - it was exceptionally loud and I had to leave after awhile.
They offer a decent continental breakfast...not the best food in the world, but your standard complimentary breakfast foods.
We stayed during a kids hockey tournament weekend. Considering the number of kids staying in this hotel, the noise level wasn't bad. Although...parents could have left the knee hockey at home. Kids playing knee hockey in their room on the 2nd floor isn't appreciated by guests staying below on the 1st floor. Some kids were running up & down the halls and knocking on doors...not the fault of the hotel of course. Parents could have done a bit better job managing the kids.
Amico's is in the same parking lot as the hotel, but I did not hear anything positive about eating there. Negative comments were largely based on very poor service....after one hour a table was told they hadn't even started making their pizza yet. I was surprised there were not very many restaurants in town, other than fast-food. We attempted to eat at one local place down the highway (The Lumberyard I believe it was called), but was greeted with a woman swearing under her breath at us. Apparently, she didn't want to surve more than the 2 people already there. So, we ended up driving to Green Bay for lunch. Green Bay is only 30 miles away, so I recommend eating there. There is a Domino's in Shawano, but other peole said it took more than 1 hour for their pizza to arrive. The hotel was great, but the town doesn't offer much for eating establishments if you don't want fast food.
