Everything about this hotel was great. Staff were friendly and accommodating, particularly Mr. Dietrich and Jill Haan. He was always happy to share a few words and she really stepped up when hail and rain threatened our bikes on Friday night. The restaurant was pleasant and the food was wonderful. At breakfast, James was really attentive and did a great... More

Really enjoyed the staff, from the front desk, to maid service. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Hotel location was good, even though we would have liked to have been closer to the Harley event. Need to add a continental breakfast for the price. Cleanliness good, however, need to update the bathrooms.

I felt like everyone working at this Hilton was there just for me. It was the absolute best customer service I've received anywhere. The service, food and bar were outstanding. Access from major road was easy. We will come back.

Great place to stay, easy to find, very fair pricing. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable bed. We ended up having one of our children join us at the last minute and the woman at the front desk was very gracious and comped us an additional free breakfast. As our son live in Milwaukee, we will return.

Great service! Very friendly in all areas from front desk to maintenance to dining room. These people really wanted you to be happy. Elevator unbearably slow. Use the stairs when going down. Roads in the area are awful for motorcycles

We had ants in our room the entire stay. The hotel staff knew this was a recurring problem, yet they did nothing to remedy this situation. The deadbolt on our room did not work, and the bolt latch was broken off. The air conditioning unit sounded like a jet engine. We chose the hotel based on location for convenience, and... More

For those seeking a convenient hotel on the East Side of Milwaukee near Lake Michigan, this is a good location; just off the freeway. Friendly staff; willing to accommodate guest requests. Two deficits : the pool needs upgrading; there are no laundry machines at the hotel. Food is good.

We had an excellent experience, the room was clean and newly renovated with all the comforts I would expect of a Hilton hotel.
