“Days Inn in name ONLY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2010

We went to Milwaukee for a trip to see the Dead Sea Scrolls we spent several hours looking for the perfect hotel. We had no appointment's that we settled on this one. As I said in my title this is a Days Inn in name ONLY. All staff except one were extremely friendly and helpful. We thought we were in a 5 star hotel from the staff except the one. The decor was most impressive down to the awesome non sink/bowl wash tub, which was a large art-deco wash bowl with an old fashioned style faucet. We were in a suite which had a separate but no door sitting area with a 42 inch flat tv on the wall and a pull out double sized sofa bed. In the sitting room there wasn't a table but there were four wooden tv tables which was even better then a table. There was a very nice down comforter on the bed. The microwave and refrigerator were a little bit hard to get to due to space limitations. There was only a desk chair in the bedroom area again perhaps due to space limitations. As noted above sleep quality was down a bit because of being directly above the bar area however this is not the hotels fault. Not wanting to drive in Milwaukee we opted for using the free shuttle, the ride was not smooth but was highly appreciated as they even located and took us to BlockBuster for games for our WII and movies for our dvd player. The staff also made several excellent suggestions on activities and restaurants. We strongly recommend this hotel but would caution that in order to avoid communication problems you confirm conversations between shifts. By the way breakfast was very good.

Stayed there one night, had a very clean room with breakfast. This is a new hotel opened in Oct. 2009 with Art all over the hotel and in the rooms. Some of it for sale. Nicely priced for singles, familes or the business traveler.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2010

Got a fabulous rate via Orbitz.com. Reviews all around seemed quite satisfied, so I felt that I was booking with confidence, especially considering the amazing price.

We stayed for two nights over a busy weekend all over Milwaukee/Madison; we really hadn't spent much time at the hotel. This being said...

- They didn't have a "DO NOT DISTURB" sign. Because of this, I figured that they made the rooms up everyday if you weren't there to decline service personally. That apparently was not correct though because...
- Our room was never made up. We left early after our first night, returned very briefly around 1pm to find our room was exactly as we had left it. We departed and then came back around 6pm... nothing. In fact, I never saw a cleaning cart or staff person in the building.
- Staff wasn't rude to us, but they definitely weren't the friendliest or most accommodating of hotel staff that I've ever encountered. Once I had to wait at the desk for a few minutes while a staffer asked the owner/manager to borrow some money. I was a bit turned off by the blatant unprofessionalism.
- Smallish parking lot.
- Generally sloppy appearance. Lots of random rooms and doors with doors ajar for no apparent reason.
+ We LOVED the room on the top floor. High ceilings with giant windows, large flat screen TV mounted to the wall, new and perfectly functioning heat/AC unit, comfy bed. Room itself was very clean, bathroom included.
+ Awesome bathrooms!!! Small, but the showerhead is fabulous and the water pressure perfect. Gorgeous sink, too. Not much counter space, however.
+ Decent selection at continental breakfast (though we ended up going out for breakfast both mornings). The breakfast area leaves something to be desired, though. It also serves as the "bar" on certain nights. It looks like a cross between a student union and an ikea outlet store.
+ PARKING IS FREE. Great location - right on the outskirts of downtown. Super easy to get to, easy freeway access, not a busy or crowded area with very minimal traffic.

Overall, I guess we got what we paid for... I've never stayed in a hotel that doesn't service the rooms thought...

I was on a business trip to milwaukee and saw this hotel on-line with a cheap rate. I was sorely dissapointed when I was not great but the front desk. She was rude and was not poliet at all like she had something better to do. I am paying good money. I would just say to those looking for a place to stay look else where.

What a cute hotel. Brand new. Very modern. Staff put on a nice buffet for New Years. Cozy lounge area. Very friendly and very clean. I would definitely stay again. Close to downtown attractions and restraunts. They also supply shuttle service which was very convenient. The bed was very comfortable. Loved the down comforter.

I stayed here one night and I really loved it! Beautiful, unique rooms. Extremely new....seemed like it just opened. While the hotel wasn't really in downtown, it's only about 5 blocks away. I really enjoyed this hotel and appreciated the great deal. Highly recommended!
