I booked this because we had an early flight out of Milwaukee. I knew the reviews weren't great, but I figured who cares. It will be good enough for one night. WRONG! The beds weren't made, junk in the trash, and the bathroom light was on. Went back to the front desk and got assigned another room. At least the... More

I would have rather slept in my car which I almost did. Our room smelled like urine, the hallway and hotel room carpeting was stained, like someone dragged a bloody dead body down the hallway. I would not recommend staying at this hotel even as your only option or last resort like I had to! No hairdryer, no soap, no... More

Booked as this was the only option on a busy weekend. Room had horrible smell that high fan setting and open window didn't touch. Bedding was questionable, bedspreads looked less than clean, probably not changed or cleaned in a long time! Thank god there were no carpeted floors! Drunken pounding in the hallway at 2:00 AM, par for the course.... More

We arrived after a long flight from the UK ready to collapse and sleep. Got to the Motel 6 in good time, checked in and just slept. Up early and off next day up to Milwaukee - no problems. The room was clean and comfortable, we weren't looking for anything else, and it was a very good price. If you... More

Granted... there were initially a couple of problems with the room (fridge needed to have rest button pressed which i figured out on my own; TV remote needed to be replaced, not just new batteries that I ran down to get myself... then again to get the new remote... TV could NOT be used w/o it) but staff was friendly... More

I arrived at Milwaukee in a huge storm. At check-in the clerk was helpful and gave me a room which was adequate, although I thought it needed a little care and attention. Fortunately the rooms were accessed by a central corridor so I didn't get too wet.

The motel was clean. There was hot water. It was convenient to the airport. It was convenient to downtown and any major attraction I wanted to visit. Internet access would have been nice, but not a deal breaker. There is a Denny's about 300 yards away that does have access. I received everything I expected, and I will stay there... More

We stayed at the Motel 6 Milwaukee South Airport to attend a convention the weekend of June 19-22. We checked in on Thursday night and found the room had no door on the bathroom. We were tired, so went to bed and decided to deal with it on Friday. Friday, we went to the office to ask about the bathroom... More

I have stayed at this place before and wasn't expecting much. The price was in the $40 range. No strange characters hanging around. Room was clean. TV worked. The problem was the beds. Both of them had damaged springs through the center of them like the beds were once folded in half and jumped on. One of them essentially had... More
