But had to call front desk for desk chair ( responded quickly with chair and apology ) and discovered in morning coffee packets but no coffee maker nor any glasses or coffee cups in room! Carpet worn and dirty, but bathroom clean. No fitness center or jogging trail nearby. For a few more $ a Super 8 by MKE is... More

Front desk person was very friendly and helpful and very nice. Glad that they accpted cash in the time of need for my family and I. Overall I'd recommend this place to anyone who needs a place to stay and isn't from the area it's right by the highway not far from the airport

For a low price I was able to spend a night and leave my car for 12 days. Check in staff was very nice. Small breakfast bar opened at 4:00 which was great. On return, waited 34 minutes for shuttle which was not great at all. Room was clean - overall the only complaint was the long wait for shuttle... More

Guests stood outside window of my room chain smoking, drinking beer and talking loud past midnight. Asked them to go to exit across hallway as no rooms there, they ignored me, complained to front desk, she talked to them, they returned. Noisy, paper thin walls, neighbors were having a party. Worst hotel stay ever and I'm in a hotel for... More

I read some of the other reviews and I'm a little baffled. Our room was comfortable and clean, the staff was helpful, polite, and friendly when we checked in. We left quite early in the morning and the orange juice and coffee was ready, some breakfast foods were available for us to grab. We were headed to Mexico and this... More

Check in was a nightmare they told us they didn't have our reservations that were made 5-6 months ago. They didn't bother to tell us that the pick up at the airport was by another company not them. When we arrived after our trip they were confused also in fact they gave us room keys to a room that was... More

I am not sure where to start. The staff is rude and unfriendly. Just today when I was checking out today, one of the staff came to the breakfast room and shouted at a mother and daughter that breakfast will be over in five minutes. I really felt sad for those two people that they were being singled out. I... More

Not sure that I would stay here for any other reason but a park and fly. The hotel is just fine--what you would expect from an Econolodge. Breakfast started really early (we left at 5 AM and it was going on). The driver we had both directions (same driver) didn't appear to speak English very well when we asked him... More

Bed was comfortable and room was clean. No bathtub only a shower that felt like the floor might not hold any more weight than mine and I'm not big. Wifi very sketchy.

We booked the room because of an early morning flight and parked our car there while on our trip. The desk clerk who checked us in was the most professional person I've ever seen.
