Good value for one night stuck at the airport. I paid $50 including tax reserving on the same day through expedia. Good free shuttle service to Mitchell Airport 24 hours. Good service. Be aware that the breakfast is from 4-9am

I booked this hotel to stay for Summerfest. The one good thing was they let us check in an hour early. I booked a king room with a microwave and fridge. The room had neither of these things. When I went into the bathroom there was a dirty bath towel hanging on the back of the door. In the morning... More

I stayed in the hotel with 2 of my grandbabies and they love the breakfast in the morning. While we were in the Milwaukee area we stayed at 2 hotels and this one was their favorite...the only problem I had that I had to go to front desk to ask for an iron.

ad to return to Milwaukee for a memorial service somewhat short notice. We had to depart General Mitchell IAP at 5:05 am, which meant about a 3:30 am get up and 4:00 am ride to the terminal. I booked this hotel in order to avoid inconveniencing family or friends at that hour. The room was fine and we were allowed... More

If you would like to be treated rudely, visit this hotel. I booked parking online for Econo Lodge Milwaukee Airport - Self Parking. They state that their parking service runs 24 hours, with the shuttle running every 30 minutes from 4am to 10pm, or to call on arrival for pick up from the airport. When we dropped off the car,...

affordable room, outside of downtown milwaukee, about 15 min away driving. older building, but seemed like rooms were going through renovations. stayed in what seemed a renovated room, overall was clean - beds, bath, etc. breakfast was underwhelming, but free.

We needed an inexpensive hotel before an early AM flight. My husband found the Econo Lodge online and booked a prepaid 1 night stay. When we arrived, the desk clerk was very pleasant and helpful. We had to drive around back to access our room thru a pothole ridden parking lot. It appeared part of the hotel was being used... More

I stayed in this hotel with a group of friends in August of 2011. We got two rooms. I and another person in my room got bedbugs. In fact, my companion went to the hospital. For me, a week later, I am still suffering from large boils on my arms and legs. I had to throw away my luggage, my... More
