“Could do better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

This is actually a nice clean hotel if you get a room on a day the maid actually does her job. I stayed here twice in one week, not back to back nights. Each time I had at least two strands of hair either on my bed or on the pillow. On the first night I had a walk in shower that had mold along the base of the shower. Either this hotel needs to hire a staff that is will do a good job or the management needs to babysit them. I went down for breakfast on morning decide to fill my personal mug with hot water for tea and the water was at best warm. This in not acceptable. This is a nice hotel and I like staying here but the staff needs to up their game or I will find someplace else to stay.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The overall hotel is very nice, comfortable and reasonably priced. Check in was very professional and she was very pleasant. Very clean rooms, the breakfast was your typical quick eat.

I stayed here 4/10/13, and was put in room 226. It was the worst night sleep at a hotel that I have had in a very long time.

The exhaust vent's below the window kept making a very loud popping noise ALL night, sounded like someone was dropping furniture in the room upstairs, it wasn't until I investigated that I realized where it was coming from. I almost called the front desk to ask them to call the room and ask them to stop making so much noise. Thank God I didn't.
At check out, the young man said "a little to early for you", (it was 8:20 a.m) I tried to tell the him that they should figure out what is wrong with the vent's and hopefully not put anyone in that room until they do, because I didn't get any sleep. His response, "sorry to hear that", he wasn't mean about it I just don't think he knew how to handle a complaint,I do not look to complain as you can see from my many reviews, but that was not the response I would have expected. If you stay here, make sure you do not get room 226, or at least ask if it has been fixed.

The stairwell smelled a lot like cigarettes, someone must have been standing inside and blowing the smoke out of the building, which doesn't work.

Room Tip: Room 226 was the worst, bed was comfortable just the noise was ungodly.

Thank you for your feedback on your stay. I apologize for the inconvenience of the noise from below your guest room, I understand how this affected your nights sleep which you should expect to have restful and without interruption. We have corrected this issue (the vents have been replaced) and do hope you will return to the hotel so we can provide you with the stay you can expect from the Sleep Inn & Suites.

Thank you for sharing your experience during your stay at the hotel. I will certainly pass on your comments to our housekeeping staff and I am happy to learn you were able to enjoy our pool and whirlpool.
Our hotel is 100% smoke free and you should expect not to find any odor of smoke, I am not sure where the smell may have come from unless someone was smoking directly outside an entry door with it propped open which is against our policy.
If you would not mind contacting the hotel and asking for the General Manager, I would like to inpect the room you were in to insure the air conditioning unit is functioning properly.
We have just updated our channel guides, I apologize your room did not have the correct information and will see to it that all rooms are re-checked to insure accuracy.
Again, your comments are most appreciated and we do hope you return to our hotel in the future for any accommodation needs you may have.
Thank you..

The room was a typical Sleep Inn. Breakfast was good. There were hand made waffles, bagels, toast, yogurt, prepackaged baked goods, microwaveable items, cereal, fruit. The pool and hot tub looked nice, small, but nice. One thing to be aware of is that on Sunday morning and evening there is a church service with live music. It resonated up to our room. It was a good distance to downtown. I think it took us about 10 minutes. Not bad. Would we stay there again? Yes, we would.

We stayed here on March 4th so we could catch our early morning flight at General Mitchell the next morning. The rooms look newly updated with flat screen tv's and updated decor. Everyone was friendly. The free shuttle to the airport was great. Even though we were leaving before the continental breakfast officially started, everything was set up and we were welcomed to help ourselves. They conveniently included items that are easy to grab and eat on the shuttle ride. We were able to park our vehicle for no extra charge. The airport pickup when we got back was prompt and the young man was nice and helped with our bags. .

Nothing negative here. Good clean property. Good staff. Fitness room and business center were both in good order. Though not used, the indoor pool looked clean and well kept. Breakfast set up was average. Good value in Milwaukee.

This was my second time staying at this Sleep Inn. Pool and Whirlpool were closed. Night clerk was very nice, professional and attentive. Next morning at 6:15AM. No hot hot food. Went to front desk. Two clerks sitting in back office chatting. Told them no hot food. One clerk - no name badge - mumbled about someone not putting out sausage and went back to bury her face in the computer! I ended up going to a restaurant nearby for breakfast. Otherwise my king room was well appointed and nice.

Room Tip: Any rooms in this property are well appointed I assume. No noisy streets nearby.
