Hometown Hotel
Located in my hometown, I have watched the Mead grow and change over the last 60 years. Last I heard, the Mead is owned by the Finns who own the papermill. I have stayed here many times over the years and have always felt it is not run to the standards their image suggests. It is in need of a refresh. Looking closely it is easy to see the minor problems that will grow into major issues later. A example were the doors on the unit housing refrig and tv. The doors are actually falling off and must be handled carefully to ensure they will almost close. HVAC needed a strong dose of lysol to cover the mildew/mold smell. Room had one decent chair for the two of us. Bed comfortable, more so the many others we have slept on. Other options are available in Rapids. You might check them out, too.

Nice Stay
Really enjoyed our stay. Rooms were clean. It’s a little outdated but it worked and had a bit of old school charm. Weight room, pool and sauna were great. The on-site restaurant was my only complaint. I had a burger that was terrible but I realize you can’t win them all. Overall I will definitely stay here again when I’m in Rapids next time.

The elevator door on the inside needs to be cleaned. It looks like blood spatter.
