The staff was very welcoming and accommodating. The rooms were very nice and comfortable, It was also convenient that a restaurant and Bar and Grill were right there to enjoy. Everything we needed was right there without driving around and trying to find places to eat. If we are in the area again in the future will be staying at...

Staff were friendly. The hotel was very nice, very clean, well kept. The rooms were spacious, the beds were comfy, parking wasn't a problem. Food served during training I attended was horrible. Great place to stay, not great place to eat.

Was great place to say, staff was great. The bed was comfortable, and food was great. The only thing I would change the light from outside shined in the room, and I like a dark room. But everything else was great!

I booked a reservation for two rooms, and was quoted a price. When I received my email confirmation, I emailed to confirm, and was still told the same price. When we arrived we were charged double that. Front desk staff are idiots.

For Wisconsin Rapids this is a very good hotel. They have ample conference space and the rooms are good. The hotel could use updating. Staff was friendly and helpful. The King suite rooms spacious and some have whirlpools in them.

Thank you for staying at the Hotel Mead. We take pride in being the only full service hotel in Wisconsin Rapids and we wouldn't be able to do what we do if it was not for our staff. Thanks again for staying with us and we hope to see you again.

Good Location for a meeting, facilities were clean, quiet and helpful staff. HISTORICALLY WE HAVE LIKED THE HOTEL. We like the area and city and the drive to and from home. The food served buffet style was helpful with a big group, it went fast and you could take as much as you wanted.

The Mead used to be THE place to stay or host a nice event in Rapids. On the plus side, our room was clean and the noise level was quiet. But the maintenance is slipping: drapes don't close fully, a cracked window looked to have been taped over for awhile, the stale cigarette smell lingers, etc. The decorations are tacky...

We are sorry to hear about the service in the restaurant and we will be looking into those issues as well. Thanks for pointing these out to us and we hope to see you...

Attended a conference at Mead. Some of our rooms had large, visible stains on the furniture and some of the bedsheets smelled of body odor. The food for our catered lunches was really bad, although our server couldn't have been nicer about apologizing. We went out to a fast food restaurant to get something else to eat. Only one hanger...

The hotel seems to have been left to out-date and no effort to make it better. There were scratches on doors that should easily be painted. The couch was disgusting in the room, stained. There was hair in the tub. The ironing board was different in all room, mine was full size but just tucked behind the armoire. There should...
