Red Lion Hotel Paper Valley, Appleton
Nice place with hints of Stalag 13
Nice hotel, good parking, friendly service. I was up before wake up call, which came (a light blinked on the phone) but phone didn't actually ring for some reason. A pot of coffee to your room in the morning will run over $18 due to three different fees added onto the $12 pot itself. That's absurd, but there's a Starbucks in the lobby. You'll have to sneak down in yesterday's clothes or shower and dress before your coffee, kind of like a Sophie's Choice for humans who want coffee in the morning but don't want to pay $18 to the camp commander for a cup o' joe. That one detail reminds you of the cynical, grasping, mercenary spirit behind the smiling face. Other than that, it was a pleasant stay.

There are no words, but I'll try
Well, I should start off by saying that this establishment charges for parking. I wouldn't find this so frustrating if you were not also charged to leave and re-park. They have very narrow escalators you need to use in order to reach the parking garage. There are warnings everywhere stating to be careful, which leads me to believe that I am not the first person who has fallen on the wretched things. The rooms are clean as long as you do not move anything around. I needed to plug my phone in by the bed and moved the other bed to reach the outlet. There was something crusty and white underneath that I can never un-see. They do not offer a free continental breakfast, but room service will bring you a bowl of cornflakes for the bargain price of $3.95 + 18%service fee +5% tax + 2 dollar room service fee. I was too cheap to try them, but I imagine they are gourmet corn flakes served with the milk of a unicorn. Again, this is just conjecture. On a positive note, the television channel selection was vast and I really liked the shampoo and conditioner provided. The pool/hot tub looked nice, but I could not go in due to the open wound from my escalator mishap. Overall, I cannot, in good conscience recommend this hotel. Perhaps, had I tried the cornflakes, my overall experience may have been different.
