We were in Milwaukee for a family get together and tried to book a home via air BnB. Having no luck doing so we booked a few rooms at the forty winks. To our surprise the Inn was very nice. The facility is an updated older motel which for the price is a real deal. The Inn is nearby the... More

I've stayed in a few places that are in this range (see Sudbury Inn review) so I had a sense of what to expect for the price. I don't expect great decor or frills, and I usually don't judge a place on the lack of such things, when they are this cheap. But this place.....well, despite the fact that it's... More

We regularly travel to Wauwatosa and have seen Forty Winks listed, but thought the price was too low for a decent place. Boy, were we wrong. It's older and not really in atyle, but the rooms are are and the beds comfortable The price is right ND we will be back!,

We recently spent two nights at this hotel and were very happy with the room and the service. The room was clean and comfortable and we were shown the room choices that were available before we checked in so we could pick the one that would work best for us...Very Nice! It would be a great hotel for business travelers... More

I really enjoyed my staying in Forty Winks Inn. I was living there for 3 weeks, without any reason in mind to change the hotel. The prices are really reasonable. Rooms are big, clean and comfortable. In room I had comfortable king size bed, flat screen TV, table and 2 chairs, air conditioning, Maid service every day, WiFi in whole... More

They had only one room when I got in, the most expensive one. The most expensive room was also not that expensive, maybe $80 after tax? The room was spacious, clean and I did not detect beg bugs. The bed was a bit creaky, but that hardly matters in most single-night stays after a bachelor party. The manager/ inn keeper... More

I love to stay at Mom and Pop motels but this one was dreadful! The bed was hard as a rock and just as lumpy. The rooms are not well insulated so the people above were as loud as if we were in the same room! Bathroom and carpet were moldy.We left an entire day early because we could not... More

This hotel is nice just a bit older. The room was very clean and smelled great when we got in. The only minor issue we had was with the hot water. We had plenty of hot water but the nozzle would whistle kinda loud....took a while to get it to work without the noise. No other complaints!

I paid $79 for three nights because my cousins were staying there while in town for my aunt's memorial service. The rooms are clean, but the furnishings are very old and tired. The decorative touches include dusty silk flowers circa 1980 and needlepoint wall hangings. No shampoo, no hand lotion, nothing but the tiny little rectangles of soap. There aren't... More

This is ok to stay in, if you're in a pinch. It's a little old...green carpeting. No shampoo, can buy at check-in for a $1. There was no continental breakfast (fruit, breakfast bars...) like their book says in the room. For the wifi, you need to ask them for the code...its on a little piece of paper. Wish they had...
