We have stayed at the Hotel Mead several times because my father-in-law lives in Wisconsin Rapids. We have always liked the hotel. However, this time we were shocked by the staff attitude about COVID. Neither front desk staff were wearing a mask when we checked in. I have been vaccinated, but I was wearing a mask as advised by the CDC to protect others. The staff were both pretty young and I have no idea whether they had been vaccinated. I told the clerk I was surprised he was not wearing a mask. He replied there was no mask mandate in Wisconsin. I said it was not a question of a mandate, but rather an issue of public health and safety. He said there were not COVID cases locally. I said that would be a medical miracle if it were true. He said well, they probably had some cases but it was not a problem. I then said, Let's just complete the check-in so I can leave the front desk. Later, I looked up COVID cases in Wood County, Wisconsin. Today, Wood County is listed as being at "High Risk" of COVID infections, and there were 20 new infections in the 3 days we were at the hotel. We are no longer comfortable staying at this hotel due to its lack of care for health and safety.

Hi, I went through travelocity and charged 2 separate rooms, ar check in I paid cash for mine and my brother paid for his with his credit card upon checkout ,they were all confused at the desk, it turns out I should not have paid cash since it was already charged to travelocity so I paid twice and they did figure it out , a minor screw up , I just want to make sure I was only charged for 1 room ? please respond Timothy Roche

Both of your rooms were paid to Expedia when you did the transaction with them. When you told the front desk agent you paid for both rooms is why she took cash for the incidentals and the pet fee. We subtracted your pet fee at check and gave you the remaining cash back. We charge Expedia for your rooms not you again. Thank you for choosing Hotel Mead. Sorry for the mix up, the online booking can be hard to understand.

It seemed more convention center than hotel. Food was just okay. Carpets seemed old. We requested a wheelchair accessible room for my disabled daughter and me. She could get into the room, but couldn’t take a shower because there was no shower chair to transfer to from her wheelchair. When she asked at the desk for one. He said there were none. That is not acceptable

Quiet, Excellent Food

Pros: The room was quiet. The heat-A/C was quiet and "Fan On" setting provided a good "gray" sound in the room. The restaurant had excellent food.
Cons: Include a light breakfast with the room.
I was working a combination of night and day shift. Hotel was very quiet. I was able to get sleep. Restaurant food was excellent. I was disappointed that breakfast was not included with the room as is usually the case with the national chains.

Thank for choosing Hotel Mead, so very happy you got a good nights rest. As you know we are full service hotel and have had conversations on the breakfast item. Still in the process with having a full breakfast menu as we are an independent hotel. Thanks again and hope to see you in the future.

Great full-serivce hotel in Wisconsin Rapids

Pros: On-site restaurant and bar and a great location.
Cons: It took about 20-30 minutes for my Travelocity reservation to actually go through to the hotel reservations site. I booked in enroute.
The Hotel Mead in downtown Wisconsin Rapids is a great full-service hotel. Rooms are clean, price was affordable, pool for kids, two restaurants and bars plus you can purchase snacks and bottled water or pop for very reasonable non-inflated prices. Within walking distance to other bars, restaurants, Dairy Queen, offices, etc. Rooms were exceptionally quiet. No complaints whatsoever about this hotel.
