"Outdated and no access for wheelchair from parking structure."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
No wheelchair access from parking structure. Phones do this place no justice. Not worth $160.

"It's fine. Just don't expect them to be accommodating."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I arrived at the Best Western front desk ahead of my party, and, having booked one one room with my name on it and one with my in law's name, I wasn't able to check us both in. Despite the fact that I booked both, I thought, "Okay, that's not totally unreasonable even if a little inconvenient." Additionally, I could get no information from them about where my in law would be staying. "Fine. It's probably a security measure. It's okay." Come to find out, my in law was going to be several floors away from us. She was there to help us with our kids while we attended some wedding duties. I booked both rooms at the same time, but they couldn't accommodate having the rooms adjoined or even on the same floor. It was pretty inconvenient and the front desk staff was relatively short in explaining why it happened this way anyway. I might one day go back to Oshkosh (it was really lovely), but I'll probably look for more accommodating accommodations.

"Great Accommodations"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Compared to even newer hotels in the Oshkosh area, the Waterfront holds its own with the others. The rooms are nice, clean and with large televisions. The Ground Round restaurant on site has good dining at a reasonable price.

"Fine hotel, bad booking experience."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I had booked and paid extra, for a king size bed at this property. They claim that they received the request as two queens and they were unable to rebook us to a king size bed because the hotel was full. After calling HotelPlanner, there was no resolution and nothing to help right this wrong. Not the hotel's fault. This is on HotelPlanner. However, this made a significant difference in our stay and we will not be using HotelPlanner ever again.

"Incredible spacious suite with an amazing view"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
I've stayed in many hotels in the Midwest and I was frankly amazed that a suite of this quality was available in Oshkosh, WI (no offense :))! What a view of the river and lake. A comparable room would cost twice as much in Kohler or Chicago! Just an overall great stay.
