“Location is excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

This hotel is literally 3 minutes from rental car return at the airport. We checked in very late and checked out very early after witnessing the Chicago Blackhawks triple overtime Stanley Cup win in Chicago. It was very quiet and the staff was very nice and accommodating. Completely recommend if you want to be close to the airport and have a quiet and clean stay.

It was clean and quiet. It was a good value for the money. It was about a 15-20 minute drive to Miller Park, the casino, the Domes and Miller Brewery. We did not use the pool but it looked nice. There is a sports bar located inside the hotel.

Dear olds8898,
I want to thank you for taking the time to write a review for the Holiday Inn & Suites. We are lacated just a short drive from many attractions and I'm sure your review will help those looking for accomodations when they come to Milwaukee to visit these venues.
I hope you we will see you on your next visit to Milwaukee and maybe you can take a little extra time to enjoy the pool/whirlpool.
If you would like to discuss any part of your stay further please feel free to contact me at any time.

When staying for business on both a Friday and Saturday night I felt as though I was at two different hotels. The first night was wonderful: quiet, clean, and extremely friendly check-in. It was also nice as a platinum priority club member to receive an almost free breakfast. On Saturday however it was a completely different hotel. Upon walking in we were greeted with twenty children running up and down the stairs soaking wet without shirts on. The front desk staff seemed less caring. Then the noise came, the people in the room next to us were cursing and screaming the "N and F word" constantly. Finally at almost 1130 pm they seemed to have been kicked out. The airport shuttle was convenient. Overall this is a perfectly fine hotel during the week but save your self a headache and DO NOT STAY on a Saturday night!

jaxfl32224,
I would first like to thank you for taking the time to write an honest review of your recent stay here at the Holiday Inn Milwaukee Airport.
We are glad to hear that your first night with us was pleasant. However as we try to make every stay satisfactory it was disturbing to hear that your 2nd night was not as pleasant as your first. I will share with our Team your review and I can assure you that we do care about everyone’s stay.
You mentioned that you are a Platinum member and we appreciate your business. We will share this review with our staff as a training tool. Unfortunately we are not able to pick and choose our guests and on very few occasions we have groups that come to the hotel and do not seem to respect their neighbors. As this is few and far between our staff may need additional training on handling these types of nights to ensure that every guest has an enjoyable stay. I can assure you though that they do care 100% that you are satisfied with your stay. If you would like to discuss your stay further please feel free to contact me anytime.
Sincerely,
Ryan Bazan

I stayed here at the beginning of April for 5 days on business. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The gym is small and only has 4 pieces of equipment. The indoor pool looked like a great place for the kids to play. There is not a lot of things to do around this hotel but it's a great location if you are going to the airport.

Basic hotel as you would expect from holiday inn but a good base near to the airport and inter state highways north and south. The hotel has been updated over the years and the gym now has some reasonable kit and has never been fully used when ever I have stayed. The swimming pool is an ok size and has a hot a large hot tub again not used much so always available. The food is typical american food and ok for a short stay, and if you are watching your weight then it takes a while for them to understand the concept of a small portion of food. The service is good and friendly.

The hotel was clean and modern/refurbished...but almost too sterile. It is a good location for Airport and gas stations close by to refill rental so it fit my needs. I would likely try another comparable hotel next time though.

We stayed here in January for a dance competition. Let me just start by saying that the staff is amazing! They were just the friendliest, most hospitable people I have had at a hotel in a long time!! We felt truly taken care of :) The food was outstanding & affordable! The pool was clean, WARM, & huge. So was the hot tub. The rooms were clean & stocked will all the blankets & pillows you need. We had a suite, so it was nice to see that there were extra blankets & pillows for the sofa bed.I have no reason to be in this area again but I will definitely come back just to stay at this hotel! Thank you everyone at the Holiday Inn!! We had a FANTASTIC mini vacation!
