GrandStay Hotel Appleton-Fox River Mall

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Great staff, hallways nicely renovated now time for the rooms and pool to get the same treatment. Nice that the pool/hot tub area is for adults but a larger pool and outdoor space would be a welcome addition. Install some music/cable TV system and please clean the dead bugs from the overhead lighting. The rooms still remain the norm for most of the hotels in the Fox Valley. Comfortable and practical yet none have set themselves apart from being hotel clones and tend to chose by rate rather than anything that has set one hotel as a better choice than any in the area.

Close to plenty of restaurants and the freeway but still quiet. Stayed here while seeing a play in town. The only negative was the pool closed at 11 pm so didn't get to use it by time we returned from the play.

We found the entire hotel and our room spotless. The double bed room was larger than most. We appreciated the extra seating. The complimentary breakfast was very good. We will be back for sure.

A fine place to stay. The facilities were alright. The pool badly needed to be cleaned. The breakfast had many options, but by 830 was cold.

Breakfast food was average, did not offer cheese or condiments for oatmeal

I booked the hotel online. I had never been to Appleton, Wisconsin and had no idea what to expect. I decided on this hotel because of the photos comma and the reviews other guests had left recently. The hotel room was more beautiful and accommodating then indicated by the pictures. The reviews we're totally accurate. This is a very nice hotel, especially for the money. The only criticism I have is that the eggs and bacon at the breakfast bar were mediocre. But, I have low expectations of the breakfast bar any time I stay at a hotel with complimentary breakfast. This would be my first choice if I came back to Appleton.

Booked a VIP room. Did not get a VIP room and was told there was no difference. This should be advertised accurately. Hotel was decent.

This is an excellent place to stay outside of Green Bay.

The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, but the pool was very tiny. The capacity was 11 people. Although, I think they had their priorities right, because the hottub was almost the same size with a capacity of 8 people. The workout center was clean, and had an elliptical, treadmill, recumbant bike, and weight machine.

We were here for a Packer Game. Hotel was right off the highway. Service was great. Loved the breakfast. I would recommend this hotel.

Love this place because I can do business there online, eat breakfast and make appointments from the hotel close by. Business center has only one computer which needs update and have the hotel headquarters order another computer. One does not do it for me so I can print directions and compose word docs!

Great place to stay! Very clean and welcoming! Great hot breakfast.

My daughter and I really enjoyed our stay. The only frustration I had was the wireless connection in the room was so weak that I couldn't even use it. Pages would not load and if they did it took a couple minutes.

Great stay for a great price. Awesome continental breakfast!

Had a very nice stay with my husband. Hotel clean and comfortable and had great food.

Large room. Clean. Up to date. Friendly staff. Very small pool. Decent Breakfast, although waffle machines were out of order. Would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is on a Great location great staff, super clean the breakfast bar full of opcions! Pretty pleaseant stay!

Was put in rm 267 which is right above the bar/lounge area...loud at times.

Check in was a breeze, hotel is quite appealing. The pool is tiny (although did not use), location was good for our visit to Appleton. However, the pillows on the bed were really small and uncomfortable and the air conditioning unit was extremely loud. We had difficulty finding a good temperature without letting the unit run. I used ear plugs and could still hear the noise and my spouse slept with a pillow over his head. Not one bit restful. Breakfast was included with the stay (make your own waffles, eggs, etc.). The breakfast room/bar had three televisions blasting with competing stations. It was hardly a relaxing way to start the trek home.

Clean rooms and friendly staff. Close to mall, restaurants, grocery and airport.
