“Chose the right place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I was pleased with everything here. Great location near airport with free shuttle. Nice neighborhood & even has security, while being in a good area. Nice, new, clean, great price, has everything needed: breakfast, internet, nice pool, etc. Near restaurants. Staff was great here. They were very friendly & very accommodating. I will stay there again when I am in town next time. No complaints whatsoever.

Room Tip: There are 2 Holiday Inn's near the airport. This was the Zellman Court location.

Great location value cleanliness large room comfortable bed everthing exceptional. Only complaint is the intermittent internet services. Off as much as it is on. I normally enjoy watching movies streamed onto my tablet when staying at hotels but this is the second HI Express in a row where internet is subpar its a dealbreaker for me.

Stayed here because I had an early morning flight out of MKE. They gave complimentary water and snack. I didn't stick around for breakfast. Room was clean and spacious. Wide range of cable TV stations. In room fridge and microwave.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Stayed two nights for a show I was preforming for in Milwaukee. Was in a king suite which was nicely set up. Had a separate small sitting room with a couch, desk and TV. The bed was nice and comfortable. Another nice large TV in the bedroom. Liked that there was both a refrigerator and microwave.

Location is a little hard to find if you don't know exactly where you are going. Didn't go to breakfast in the morning but the people in our group that did said it was good. There is also a indoor water park in the hotel. Good wi-fi and also there are computers and printers in the lobby for your use as well.

Good value for the money and here is my only complaint. The walls are paper thin from a noise standpoint. I was sitting in my bed and could easily here, word for word, the conversation that the guest in the next room was having with his wife on the phone.

Otherwise would recommend,

We planned a quiet evening at this hotel with our small grandchildren to play and swim. We were looking forward to it until we received a phone call 5 days before our arrival that only 5 pool wristbands will be issued to our room and we could NOT purchase any more. The only way to get more was to book another room. Now our children and grandchildren live in Milwaukee so they visit us at the hotels we stay at and do not stay overnight. There was absolutely no other solution except to book another room according to the manager, Brock. Now, I totally understand having a policy in place - however this policy is NOWHERE on their website, NOWHERE on the reservation or confirmation. Needless to say we cancelled our reservation.

Dear Deb,

I am very sorry to hear that you will not be staying with us. According to our new wristband policy each room does receive a specific number of wristbands. To better inform our guests we have been calling our guests the week ahead of the reservation to inform them of this policy change. We are doing this to make sure all our guests are aware that the policy is in effect in case they would like to change or cancel the reservation. We no longer accept people from the outside into our pool as of April 19th 2012 and this has limited the overcrowded in our pool so that all guests can enjoy the pool area.

We again apologize to you about the inconvenience and hope that you and others can be aware of the changes and what we are trying to do to better the guest’s experience.

Thank you,
Brock Winkler

We spent the night at this Holiday Inn after a meeting. We were greeted by nice friendly staff and were checked in fast. They are very family friendly with a wonderful pool area for everyone from young kids to adults. Our room was very nice with a refrigerator and microwave. Parking was good and free. It is close to the airport but very quit.

I like staying at Holiday Inns and similar chains because you usually know what to expect. All I need is a comfy bed and a quiet room and I'm happy. That said, the one thing that separates one Holiday Inn from another is the staff. From the front desk clerk that checked me in, to the airport shuttle driver, to the general manager Brock Winkler (sp?) who recommended a good local pizza place (di Carlo's is the name), I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating, which makes a big difference when you're a business traveler and often don't know a friendly face to chat with. Apart from the staff, I was surprised to find the rooms were nicer and more up to date than I expected, especially the bathrooms/shower. Maybe I was just having a good day (my business meeting went well), but I left the hotel feeling very satisfied with my stay.

PS The convenience and ease of the airport shuttle (and the hotel's proximity to the airport) cannot be overstated.
