i've been staying here many years, i'm always greeted by name and i feel welcome every time i arrive. i'm out 60+ nights a year and i stay at IHG hotels exclusively. this is the nicest , most professionally run and the cleanest IHG hotel i stay at. if it isn't, it should be a flagship of the brand.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Katt13 Friendly staff, nice room.
Pleased to be told that our room was "clean and ready" when we walked in about 2 hours before office check in time. Front desk staff was always friendly and upbeat, considering they were having a busy weekend with lots of local youth sports events going on. They even had a room open for guests to watch the UW Badgers play a tournament game!
The room was nice and clean. The microwave and coffee maker were a bit difficult to operate but worked well enough. Loved having a fridge in the room! Could have done with more towels #we had 4 in the room and 3 bath towels#, but that seems to be the case with any hotel. Again, considering the number of kids staying at the hotel, the noise levels were fine, probably in part to the staff notifying guests of the quiet hours from 10-7.
The hotel was in a good location, across from Fox River Mall. While we didn't visit the mall ourselves, the proximity to the mall has the advantage of having many shopping opportunities, and more importantly #To my family, at least!#, many nearby family friendly restaurants.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sandipete just ok
Not really sure it is worth the price. Staff is great and it is clean. Bedding just alright. Heard doors closing all night long even on the "quieter" 7th floor. There was a ball tournament in town so it made using the pool area impossible. Stayed at nicer motels in the area for less money that included breakfast.

was disappointed that your front reception area did not have the Badger game on in the main lobby nor would they switch the channel, even tho several guests asked them to, so we could view it

What brings me back to this facility is the excellent, accommodating, professional staff. I do have some issues with the satellite t.v. Service, but I have stayed at other holiday inn properties and where they use satellite the problems are there as well.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LBAZ Great service, but hotel is dated and uncomfortable beds.
Great customer service at front desk and breakfast staff. Buffet not very fresh an hour in, so ordered off menu rest of week which was better quality, but a little pricey. Very hard mattress and very soft and small pillows so slept terribly. There was a decent amount of light and noise that came thru the room door. The hotel is definitely older/dated which I don't prefer, so I wouldn't stay here again most likely. Large fitness room with lots of options, although some equipment is a little older and needs some attention. Very convenient location right off hwy and close to lots of restaurants and shopping.

I Would Liked to Have Seen A Refrigerator and Microwave in the Room. For Being a Holiday Inn, I was Surprised The Room Did Not Have These Features. I Feel This Is A Higher Quality Hotel Compared to Some We Have Been To And Those Hotels Had A Micro

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good hotel for business
Great location for a business trip (close to restaurants, shops, etc.). The hotel has a bar/lounge and a restaurant for breakfast. They have a pool and hot tub, as well as a workout area (bigger than most, but minimal free weights).

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bmurr Not Good
My wife and I had this overnight trip to the Appleton area to see a show planned for months. Upon our arrival we were treated rudely and unfairly by the front desk clerk we were dealing with. When we got to our room, both being in school, we attempted to check our e-mails and had no internet access. Our room had no fridge or microwave, and upon requesting one be brought up it took over 2 hours for that request to be met. Apparently the front desk waited those 2 hours until the shuttle driver got back and had him bring it up, must have been to difficult a request for one of the three individuals working the desk. The only positive's of the hotel were the mattresses and the shuttle driver. He was great, maybe he should be more involved in customer service than the other individuals we had contact with.

I love Holiday Inn Express and Holiday Inn. They are always clean, staff friendly. My room was huge, bed comfortable, thermostat worked, I slept well. The bathroom was not the best. Needs updating and if you are staying at a Holiday Inn in Wisconsin, BRING HAIR CONDITIONER! For some reason they no longer have conditioner in the bathrooms? Otherwise, I highly recommend! OH fitness room is AMAZING!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by copaige Nice place to stay.
We were greeted and given great service from the time of entry. The room was spacious and comfortable. The biggest negative was it was 10 below zero out, and the room was set at 60 deg. Also, most of the other Holiday Inn places we've stayed at have given us free or greatly discounted food for being gold point members.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by McRich66 Dark and run down rooms
An embarrassment to the Holiday Inn brand. Dark room, uncomfortable bed, not enough power outlets (alarm clock cord run from the wall by the bed, let alone none by the bed for your own needs), shower head at forehead level of a 5'8" person. I wish i had thought to take pictures. On a positive note the woman who checked me in and out was very friendly while the male I assumed to be the manager walked right by as I was sharing my concerns.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Region219 so so
The bed/ mattresses were low to the ground. The mattress were not comfortable and the end went up when I sat on the end of the bed ( I'm an average size guy, LOL). The second day when we came back to the room, the bathroom towels on the floor were taken but the two on the back of the bathroom door were still there and wet. The ones taken to be cleaned were not replaced.......
The room was nice with microwave and refrigerator and they were clean. The down fall was clean, dry fresh towel replacement and matresses, or I would have rated higher.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by travelguy77 Not the best HI in the Fox Valley
I stayed here recently for 2 weeks for a work trip. I was on the executive floor which required an access code, that was nice. But the new renovations don't seem to be more than a coat of paint and new linens. I had to request hair conditioner in my room because they don't stock it in the rooms, which means they are pinching pennies (especially since I was in an executive room). I also had to request a fridge and microwave, which came in and stayed on a wheeled cart. I will say that my requests were met quickly and the staff was great about it, but these are items I don't feel like I should have to request.
As for the rooms, if these beds are new, they were cheap, because they are not very comfortable and the pillows are flat as can be. And the TV selection is very limited. Lastly, the showers are cramped and the water pressure is non existent. I understand there are limits on the physical structure of the old building, but that doesn't explain the lack of water pressure.
As far as the exec lounge, it looks very cheap and they don't even serve breakfast on monday mornings (again pinching pennies, as I understand not a lot of business travelers arrive Sunday night, but some do and breakfast would be nice) The drinks at night during the week are nice, but the snacks could be improved upon.
I imagine for a night or two, this place is tolerable, but for a longer stay, I'll be looking elsewhere as there are numerous choices in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rwalsh Nice Pillows
I don't know why but I notice nice pillows, it can make a big difference in the quality of my sleep.
I also appreciated the recognition of my Platinum status. There were no more rooms on the concierge floor but I was given access to the lounge without asking. That was a nice touch because I was traveling with someone who already was on that floor. We were able to share a small snack and beer after a long day and meet before the start of the day.
