stayed 3 nights in nice, basic room with good bed and great bedding. Bathrooms were very dated, one sink only, older tub etc. PAPER THIN walls so you can hear doors slam and voices project all the way down the hall.

My wife and I needed a place to stay for the night while passing through Milwaukee so we could take our son, who lives there, out to dinner. The price was right, the facility very attractive and the service was appreciated. We weren't there long enough to get a good feel for everything, but the complimentary breakfast because of our...

This is a good hotel for the person who just needs lodging in the Northeast of Milwaukee. Nothing fancy. Nothing extraordinary. Everything clean and appealing. The neighbor hood is not what it once was so they hired guards to watch the parking lot and roam the hotel. Only problem is the guards read newspapers, eat or watch tv in the... More

The restaurant has the best hotel food I've experienced in a long time. The staff was excellent in ensuring that any issue is resolved immediately. It's not the fanciest hotel I've ever stayed in, but very comfortable.

I would heartedly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling. It is in a great spot. A few miles south is downtown, easily accessible, and a few miles north is one of the neatest malls/shopping districts my wife and I have visited in a while.
