I would keep this hotel in the mix if I were ever going to Milwaukee for 1 night, as it is near the highway and a short drive to downtown, miller park or the airport.
Would I stay for even 2 nights? or more? big emphatic, NO. The staff seemed extremely worn out, the A/C units, as mentioned in other reviews, do not work properly. It is probably an old system in need of serious updating/replacing. Anyway, by 5 am I woke up drenched and we had the temp in the room set to the lowest level!
The fire alarms went off at 1 am for some reason. The complimentary breakfast is a nice perk, but at that point, we just wanted out, so we took a short drive to either IHOP (which is closed while the kitchen is remodeled) or Perkins.
the rooms all have Sleep Number beds which is an odd feature to put in a hotel. Anyway, the controls don't really work as you can't set it to a number, you just hold up or down until the bed is comfortable. and you need to hold the button down for a good 30 seconds before anything starts happening, so i can understand people thinking that it is broken, and end up sleeping on a very firm, uncomfortable mattress.
Anyway, many other 'value' hotels are located right near this, with Fairfield Inn being almost right across the street. Would stay at just about all of the other options before trying this place again.
2.5 star rating is generous for this place.
