I wasn't expecting the best but it was by no means the worst. Front desk staff was very friendly. My room was clean and satisfactory. The free round trip airport transfer was great. The onsite restaurant was pretty good. I was expecting much more noise but it was surprising quiet. At least 3-4 fast food places that deliver.

Dirty, hard beds, old (probably architecturally unstable), clogged shower and toilet. Our glass slider door wouldn't lock (broken) to the balcony. People next to us were loud & ghetto!!! Little kids crying and screaming through the night, Pretty sure I saw a hooker. People in parking lot blast bass rap and driving fast. The towels are the smallest I've ever... More

Do not stay here. I completely regret getting a cheap room since all we needed was a quick place to sleep. The entire hotel smells terribly. I couldn't even sleep because of how poorly it smelled. I ended up sitting out on the balcony at 4:00am just so I could breathe. I also felt like I was in the ghetto... More

Hi All! We arrived in Milwaukee late the night before so this place is great if you need just an overnight. Sheets were clean. Very few amenities. Bring your own if you want anything remotely special. The staff was very pleasant and room was clean. The sheets were clean too - another big plus (duh.............). IF you wanted to swim... More

My boyfriend and I impulsively decided to stay another night in Milwaukee but did not want to spend a lot of money. We didn't need anything extravagant but I absolutely would have dropped a bit more money for something safer than. For starters, the electronic locks to enter the hotel were damaged. Anybody can stroll right into this hotel and... More

Had a little problem with cheap hotels but the hotel itself was ok... customer service was great. Just needs to be a little more clean and better mattress... overall it's a place to conveniently last minute stay...

We flew to Milwaukee from the state of Virginia in what was going to be our 7 day vacation. We were going to visit Milwaukee, WI., Detroit, MI. and Chicago, IL. We stayed at this hotel for the one day we spent in Milwaukee. The location for this hotel was very central and close to places. The rooms were clean... More

Made the reservation through expedia - whom actually was very wonderful in handling this - bathroom and room were not cleaned in days, dust and hair all over bathroom. The toilet was used and not flushed. Typically that i can overlook, but the bloody towels, the staff assuming that i was lying, and the staff not communicating to the General... More
