This is an older hotel but very well maintained. Front desk staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area surrounding the hotel. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Lots of restaurants close to the motel. UofW within a few miles.

I booked this through Priceline Name Your Own Price for a 3 star hotel and was excited to get it because most of the Crowne Plazas I've stayed in have been nice. This was VERY poorly kept up and was a 2.5 star at best. Some things that happened: - sink was loudly dripping onto

I booked this hotel based on my previous experience here. It is directly across from East Towne Mall, and my daughter and I wanted to do some shopping in the mall and area. We arrived around 1, and checked to see if we could get our room early. They could accommodate that

Dear mytrek, Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback from your recent stay. I do sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience you and your daughter had during your visit. I am so sorry we did not accommodate the preference to be close to the elevator. Please don't ever hesitate to let us know and we will certainly do our best to make it right and fulfill the request. I spoke with the Director of Facilities about the pool and whirlpool temperatures that you described. He did check on these and is working to resolve the issues. Refrigerators are available in the suites. We do have additional fridges available upon request, free of charge, that we can deliver to your room. As this is a full service hotel, breakfast is only included with a package rate, and I do apologize, reward nights do not qualify as a package. I have spoken with the Executive Housekeeper about making sure the team is replenishing all amenities and nothing, such as toilet paper, is overlooked. I am very sorry that happened. We are eagerly anticipating a major renovation in early 2019 and sincerely hope you will consider giving us another chance to have you as our guest and make up for this disappointing experience. Again, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. It is considered a gift and will be used to improve things in the areas identified. Kindest Regards, Michelle W.

We stayed in this hotel for two consecutive nights, every time we wanted to enter our room the key cards did not work. We had to go back to the front desk for them to be reprogramed. The staff at the reception desk was uncaring and argumentative about our problem. The water

Poor housekeeping. Yes the hotel is on the older side. Yes it is scheduled for remodel. That does not excuse the dirty room or the poor housekeeping. I’ll get to that part. Sure they don’t offer complimentary breakfast or even a staffed paid one this morning but hey, at least it

Dear Christopher F, Thank you for taking the time to leave this feedback for our hotel. We do truly take it to heart so that we can learn from it and improve on training and performance. I've shared your review with our Director of Facilities and Executive Housekeeper so they can implement the necessary follow up to make sure this situation, and others like it, do not happen again. First, I would like to personally extend my sincerest apologies for the issues you experienced during your stay. Our only intention is for our guests to enjoy their stay and be comfortable. I am so sorry we did not live up to either of these expectations. That is not acceptable and not what we strive to achieve. I will make no excuses for what happened, but as previously promised, your review will be utilized to fullest extent to improve our team performance. Second, to address your other concerns, I assure you our breakfast is staffed each and every morning in Prairie Café. On Saturday, we had extra staff to service the rushes from the hockey teams in-house. It is a challenge to keep up with an energetic group and I apologize that we did not meet your expectations in that respect. It was a busy afternoon with over 200 check-ins, and the line was steady from the 4:00pm check-in time. We do strive to make the check-in process as streamlined as possible, and again, I apologize we were not able decrease the line time Friday afternoon. As for the elevators, all three were in working order, but with dozens of people all trying to use them at once, I have no doubt the wait time was extended. As for the response you received from the Front Desk regarding your concerns, we clearly let you down. This will be addressed so our Agents are better equipped to deliver a solution, not just an apology. I would like to encourage you to contact me personally so we can make it right. We never want a guest to leave the hotel displeased. I do hope you will afford me the opportunity to follow up further on these experiences you had. My direct email address is whitem@gfhotels.com. You may also call me by contacting the Front Desk at 608-244-4703. Please just ask to be transferred to my extension. Kindest Regards, Michelle W.

We were fine but you can't get the room really cold. I think it was mid 70's.
