“Best Hotel for Park and Fly!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel at least four times in the last couple of years when flying out of MKE. I couldn't be happier with their service- the shuttle drivers are prompt and professional and the reservation staff is very helpful. We recently had a mixup with our reservation, but Becky at the front desk went above and beyond to help us out.

The rooms are well laid-out and roomy, with the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in. We really appreciate the great service and will not hesitate to recommend this hotel to our friends.

The hotel also has a great sports bar attached, which is a great way to get an 'early start' to your vacation!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We stayed here as a family of six for their park, stay and fly package. The rate was reasonable and they were willing to put two roll away beds in our room to accommodate our large family (extra cost of $10 each). The hotel is right across the street from MKE and the shuttle service runs 24 hours per day based on when you need it. The rooms were dated and in need of an update. However, for the price and the convenience of a stay/fly package, it was well worth it. The staff were very nice and helpful with our bags and getting us on the shuttle at the right time. The pool area was nice for the kids. We were there on one of the coldest nights of the winter and the "dome" area over the pool was very cold. The water in the pool was also cold and my kids only swam for a few minutes before hitting the hot tub and they were ready to go. There were very few people staying at the hotel, so maybe they don't heat it during the winter due to the costs. I would stay here again if we fly out of MKE, but there was little about the hotel that was impressive beyond the price.

This was our 1st time @ The Best Western Plus & we were extremely impressed with the whole facility. Easy check-in ~ beautiful/clean room ~ great shuttle service to & from Airport & friendly staff. Enjoyed the Aviator Sports Bar & Grille ~~ reasonably priced food, we had the Chicken Cesar Salad & Chicken Wings (with a variety of sauces) ~~both were excellent!!! Happy Hour Drink Specials, can't beat $5 martinis & $2 domestic pints, but what stood out for us was a very hard working lady, by the name of Dee. She not only bartends, but takes & serves your food order. She's a WINNER in my book.

We use this hotel when flying out of General Mitchell Airport Milwaukee. I'm always impressed. The price is so reasonable for airport parking. The shuttle process is very quick and always on time. Also timely to pick up upon return.

The pool is a bit cold and the pool area can be noisy at night on weekends, so if you have an early departure, request a non poolside room!

I don't usually review on standard hotels, but this latest trip left me particularly impressed. We went to the restaurant to get some coffee before our flight and the hostess asked us if we'd like to stay for breakfast. I was nervous about missing the shuttle and said we only had 1/2 hour and besides we had thrown away our free vouchers. She said no problem, we didn't need them and she would notify the front desk that we were there in case the shuttle arrived and we were still eating. I thought this was very thoughtful. An impressive small gesture.

I will (and have) recommended this hotel for anyone traveling from GMIA. The bar area is very nice. They have good drinks and very reasonable happy hour pricing on food and drinks. The rooms are a little dated, but comfortable and clean.

Stayed here on Friday January 4th, so we could be shuttled to the airport bright and early for a flight, and leave our car in their lot while we were on vacay.
Good service checking in, decent food in restaurant and great drinks in the sports bar. Shuttle right on time, and was at airport when we returned. Room was clean, pool looked nice, although we didn't use it!
Thanks Best Western Plus!

BestwesternPLUS, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Milwaukee Airport Hotel & Conference Ctr., responded to this review, January 25, 2013
Thank you for your kind review. I’m pleased to hear you had an excellent stay with us on January 4th. Isn’t the Stay and Fly package an amazing value? A spacious updated room with all the extra touches, breakfast no matter how early your flight, and quick reliable shuttle service so you can avoid the headaches of navigating the airport. I’ll be sure to pass on your compliments of the Sports Bar & Grille to Chef Erik and our Restaurant Manager Randy. Next time you come make sure to take the time to relax and unwind in our heated pool and whirlpool in the tropical atrium you saw when you stayed. Thanks again for the review and we are excited to see you the next time you make it to Milwaukee!

Sincerely,
Mark A. Johnson
Vice President/General Manager
