So I guess the Ramada their upscale hotel in Fond du Lac.....no, seriously.
So I was here for work for a couple of days that felt like 2 weeks. Not because of the workshops I had to attend for work, but because of the fact that there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do, so everything seems to be moving in slooooow moootion....
The hotel is located in their "downtown" where half the storefronts are empty and everything else closes by 6pm. Restaurants close at 9pm.
Anyways, hotel was decent compared to the rest of the town.
Oh, and I know it's odd to see 2 chinese people walking down the street, but is there seriously a need to stare? Hahha....it was pretty funny, but got kind of annoying after the first day.
Anywho, if you're forced to stay in Fond du Lac, and cost isn't an issue (just kidding...it's cheap), I recommend the Ramada since the hotel wasn't too bad, plus the local people I spoke to seemed almost impressed that I was staying there. I didn't use any of their amenities, but I know they have a small pool and business center - best part was that they have free Wi-fi and garage parking.
Oh, one more thing - I requested late check out since my work thing didn't end til 4pm, they just charged an additional $27 and I had the room til 6pm....so that was nice :)
Warning: Hotel bar closes really early - contemplated on going to one of their local bars, but decided not to once I remembered I wasn't white :)
Visiting towns and cities like this makes me appreciate Chicago so much more.....even the traffic....
* Suggestion - bring some cash since some places don't accept credit cards, or they do but not Discover....

Big old grand style hotel smack dab in the middle of downtown Fond du Lac. Lots of ornate grillwork in the railings and elevators. I have stayed here about half a dozen times - my wife grew up in FDL and we make an annual pilgrimage back there with here other siblings.
Large pool, hot tub, and sauna as well as a large staffed fitness center. Not just a fitness room but a fitness center.
Like the other reviewers state, life in FDL is SSSSLLLLLOOOOWWW and so is the check in process. The carpets roll up in most of FDL at 8pm so check out Joe's Fox Hut just down the street for some great pizza.

The rooms are nice, the lobby is just fine, the servers (at least the one we had) at the little restaurant are great, but the elevators give this hotel a storage facility feel.
This hotel could actually have a higher price appeal to it, if they changed a few things. Ya know, fancy it up a bit. The elevators are like freight elevators with 1970's lenolium tile and then stark white walls. Put a little carpet in the elevators and try and make it feel less like a freight elevator and more like a hotel. It will make a world of difference.
Another suggestion, do not serve frozen, pre-cute potatoes as "hashbrowns" for breakfast.
Otherwise, my stay here was great. We had a nice room with a separate bedroom, dining room table, a little kitchen with a sink, fridge and microwave.
With a few upgrades, this could be a really nice hotel.

Meh. This place could be amazing with an update. It's in a gorgeous old building but all the furniture/decoration is just old in a bad way.
Good: Bed was surprisingly cozy. High pressure showers. Nice staff and fast check in process.
Bad: TV was tiny. Certain parts of the hotel were just shabby: Holes in the walls where a picture was supposed to be hung, Really dusty and gross carpet back behind the nightstand (I wasn't inspecting the whole room- just plugging in my phone, haha). Breakfast was horrible. Maybe the continental is better, but when I got downstairs they had already put it away. So I got a complimentary waffle with my breakfast coupon. I don't know how you mess up a waffle, but they did. It was seriously terrible. Pass on eating downstairs.
Anyway, it's pretty charming but with an update it could be awesome. :)

As far as a venue for hosting a wedding reception, the Ramada did extremely well. The food was actually very good, and hot! There was ample space for dancing or drinking or hanging out.
The room was just meh, and it was very hot with no working a/c unit.
I grew up in Fond du Lac, so I know that this city isn't the greatest at holding on to its historical buildings, but they really should try to invest in updating this hotel. For one thing, it is the only hotel downtown. I know FDL ain't no tourist mecca, but at least turn this place into a sparkling gem so people have another choice instead of the bland ho/mo-tels (lol) with a great view of the...frontage road? Gross.
Another thing...that hotel bar is atrocious. Midtown Pub? Or TruBlu? Doesn't seem to know what its name is. Anyway, it is extremely out of place with the "high-class" feel you're supposed to be getting at this hotel. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with divey, dancey bars, but this is every other bar around the area already. Wouldn't hurt to class it up a notch.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel Saturday, June 7th. I know the hotel is very old because it was there when I was a child living in Fond du Lac in the 50's. It is very beautiful in its own way, the way it was in its early days. I wouldn't change a thing. We had comfortable beds, a decent morning breakfast as good as any I've gotten at any hotel priced similarly, and we were treated very well. We left and had to call because I had left my purse behind. They found it and when we came to retrieve it, nothing inside had been touched. We had a nice sized flat screen TV in our eighth floor room. We learned that it had been completely updated while keeping the old decor that is really splendid. You can't blame the hotel because the neighborhood is dull. It is Fond du Lac, period.

Could be nice with a little upkeep. Basic standard hotel. A little on the pricey side for what it is. Could've stayed at a holiday inn for the same experience but it was the only thing close to our destination.

Ah...Fondy...i love you Fondy!
Spending more than a few years here in fondy the Ramada is typically a final destination at some point. ive spent cotillions, wedding receptions, funerals, concerts, you name it...the ramada has offerred it for me. it is the upscale hotel in Fondy, which is cool because the front desk crew is local and reasonable. i lost a hoodie here once and they gave me a room half price because i'm a repeat customer. if you're an out of towner andf dont know the area well then you're screwed. there really isnt anything to do in fondy but drink, party on campus with the marian college kids, or drink. you're on main street downtown, so not only is there a bar downstairs, but a bar across the street no matter which door you exit (fondy definitely knows how to get a person drunk) and more all in walking distance. late nite food is out unless you plan on walking or driving to taco bell or the breakfast shops across town open 24 hours. the beds are hard but the pillows are soft. they will give you a cot, even come fix the temperature. there's plenty of parking
oh yeah...its haunted. did i mention that the place is haunted?? no seriously, its haunted. good luck with that.
its cheap, close to places to drink and usually has enough rooms to cover most weekend trips. but call ahead, because it is the upscale hotel of the area, and if there's an event on the wkkened or a convention in the area it fills up quickly.
