I chose this for it's location, as I had to swap out my rental car at the airport. Everything about it was average. There's no elevator and had to schlepp my bags up to the second floor and they gave me a room that wasn't cleaned. Finally got a clean one and the room was scruffy. I spent the least... More

My husband and I stayed here since we were flying out in the morning. It is used as Park and Fly and that is exactly what is was. The front desk man was helpful and friendly and he got us into our room very quick. The room was clean enough and bed sheets were Ok, bathroom-clean, space was good, and... More

We stayed one night and used the parking for our three week trip to Hawaii. Room was fine and the front desk person was great. It was a good value for us since the flight was cheaper than Dane county airport and the parking was basically free (small, very reasonable fee for parking over 2 weeks.) so no paying for... More

This hotel was hands-down the worst we've ever stayed in. I booked it online, after researching something close to the Milwaukee airport that had good reviews on Booking.com. Even though we arrived late at night after a long day of travel with our 6-month old baby, it took over half an hour for the front desk person to check us... More

On the positive side: - most of the staff was friendly (except for the morning desk guy - he wasn't too helpful) - if you have a car - it's a nice jumping off location for exploring Milwaukee (close to 94; easy to get downtown or to ball park) - Wifi - Plenty of parking - price... not bad. but...

The hotel is average at best. It's in desperate need for renovations! You can hear/feel the hallway floors give and creak as you walk to and fro your room! The 1st floor halls (where the smoking rooms are) smell just awful. The best thing about this place is the shower...which is not saying a whole lot. Finally, the breakfast...which it... More

This is the grossest hotel I've ever been in. I pulled back the bed spread to sit on the sheets and there were numerous disgusting (pubic-looking) hairs on the sheets. We had the maid change the sheets and the new ones were so stained that I could not decide which side of the bed was less offensive. Yes, it's cheap... More

Looking for a decent cheap hotel before your flight. this is your place plus they serve breakfast mostly "bread" products. Front desk was very helpful. I only stayed one night before a flight and it was quiet and no issues

For an Econolodge it's pretty decent. Only real complaint was very hard bed. While I had a car, I took the bus downtown to have some German food. Breakfast is very limited but that is the story with most Econolodges. One of the front desk folks was less than helpful but others were OK.
