“Great deal for flying out of Milwaukee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

We live in Madison but it's outrageously expensive to fly out from here. When I heard about the BW Plus Stay and Fly package we decided to give it a try.
The experience was great. I had a coupon so our room was $89.00. The room was fine, comfortable and quiet as I had requested. The real extras came in unexpected ways: An excellent piece of affordable grilled salmon in their bar/grille restaurant, snacks and coffee at 5 a.m. before our shuttle, and of course the shuttle/car park service itself. The shuttle to and from the airport was prompt and where else do you get to park for free for a week? We'd do this again in a hearbeat.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, ask for one!!

Despite the dirty corridors (but I think that has something to do with the construction going on) and somewhat weird feeling carpet, I enjoyed my stay here.

Room itself was clean, bed was comfortable although did sag a bit and the sheet felt somewhat uncomfortable against my skin, linen was nice though, TV was clear (though it was frustrating not to have a list of channels), shower was too high for me but would be great for a tall person and/or someone with a big build. Its very close to the airport but I didn't hear anything. Pool looked inviting but I didn't take a swim. All rooms have internal entries but some of them (mine included faces the internal pool so you can hear people talking and swimming by the pool.

The price was right with the coupon I used and is only good value because of this.

We tried the BW instead of the Wyndham (which we had used the last three or four trips) after reading Tripadvisor reviews. Glad we did for the most part, the property was actually closer to the airport (by about 1000 yards), the rooms were nice (not by a lot), and the front desk service was really good. The shuttle service going was a little different - they are on half-hour runs as opposed to on-call, but pick up was on call and the driver brought us right to our car.

From a price standpoint, the cost was about the same as the Wyndham. We didn't get a free drink or discount from the restaurant. This was a good thing since I sat at the bar for 15 minutes and there was no bartender available as she was also the waitress and seemed to be working the karaoke thing going on as well. Not impressed with that aspect of the property but that is probably not owned by the BW. The pool looked nice, but didn't use it. We had an early flight so missed breakfast, but they did have some items available as a grab and go which was nice.

As far as the room went, it was basic, but clean and functional for our needs. The bed was comfortable, and the linens were decent. The wake-up call worked. There was wifi. There was a microwave and fridge in the room also.

The long and short of it for us is that we would probably stay at the property over the Wyndham again for a park and fly. It was cleaner, a little easier to navigate, and the price was right.

Room Tip: I wouldn't want a room by the pool.

First floor room near the pool was noisy and too light at night. The mattress was far too soft and the pillows were too large. The breakfast was better than average. The staff was friendly; but a minor incident left a sour taste. I noticed that my printed bill was $4 higher for two nights than the amount on the reservation. When I brought this to the attention of the person at the desk she explained that the extra charge was for a safe in the room. Since I had no use for a safe and had not been asked about it at check-in, much less advised of an additional cost I questioned the bill and the desk clerk promply and cheerfully adjusted the final bill. My concern was that this addition is part of routine policy and that only those who actually object are spared the cost
