“Very Friendly Waitstaff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

The morning waitstaff waitstaff was extremely friendly and attentive, Rockia (not sure of spelling) was just a joy to be around and her work ethic was amazing. The front desk staff was always very friendly and very helpful as well. As for the hotel itself , location was very convenient and you didn't hear the planes taking off and landing. Nice pool area and a clean. The bed was a little soft for my liking though.

Needed a place for the night in Milwaukee. So glad I picked this place. Very close to airport ( you don't hear planes). Car rentals at arms length very nearby. Quick 10-15 min drive to downtown Milwaukee for great food and night life. The staff couldn't have been more courteous, helpful and friendly. The rooms were tastefully done and very clean. However given the age of the hotel you can hear people in the halls and above you, but has to do more with the inconsideration of the guests and not the hotel. They serve a great breakfast from 6:30-10:00 AM. I would definitely recommend a stay here and when back in Milwaukee would return.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from atrium as the pool is in the center and can become noisy. The rooms in the b...

Tammy at Aviator was wonderful! The poor girl does everything yet maintains a good attitude and friendly service. She was waiting tables, training other staff, and running the cash register.Thanks, Tammy!

I've been working in Milwaukee Tue - Friday for 2 months. The hotel property itself is a little tired but the staff makes up for it by being extra friendly and attentive. I've slept in at least 9 different rooms and the beds are consistently comfortable. The restaurant is nothing fancy but dependably clean and tasty. Breakfast manager Craig Conway deserves special mention for his good work. Skip the fitness room - it's a sad disappointment. The bar has good drink and food specials.

If you're a no frills traveler looking for good value - stay here.

Room Tip: If you're seeking quiet at night, get away from the pool, but also avoid the ground floor doors...

I was working in Milwaukee at the airport from out of town and stayed at the hotel Monday through Thursday night basically for 6 weeks. The great front desk staff to room service to the restaurant staff, everyone greeted you with a smile and made sure you were happy with your stay and taken care of. The rooms had comfortable chairs, a nice big desk, refrigerator, microwave, iron, coffee maker, plenty of towels and lots of pillows and a large tv and alarm clock. Very comfortable. I ate breakfast there every morning. Craig Conway and his crew of Rockeya, Dayana and Estelle were early risers making sure the breakfast was hot and ready to go. The shuttle service to and from the airport was very good too. Less than 5 minute wait for pick up if you called and or they were not there already. The restaurant staff including the bar was really nice and attentive as well. Cant remember their names but Edwin, Danielle, David, Rich were fantastic server and bartenders. Front desk people Ricco and Shane? were always cheerful and smiling and of best service.
Overall, I recommend this hotel for long or short stays.
The ONLY drawback, was the pool hours, I wished they were 2 hours earlier and 2 hours later in times.

Room Tip: closer to the lobby the better, unless you wanna walk 2 blocks to the restaurant or lobby

Kevin,
Thank you so much for your feedback! I am so happy to hear we could be your extended family and home away from home during your lengthy time here in Milwaukee. I appreciate your feedback about the pool hours, I will definitely address the pool hours, that our previous guests suggested to moving forward. For example, we had a tour bus group that requested later pool hours and we accommodated that change for them. As we are committed to ensuring that guest feedback is adhered to and we drive any transitions at this hotel, because of the guest. Please contact me personally to discuss any upcoming trips to Milwaukee and I assure you that I will take care of you.

My wife and I stayed here the night before flying out of Milwaukee on a trip and it worked out fine and the motel is close and convenient to the airport. Their park and fly deal worked great and the room was large, clean and comfortable and their personnel are very friendly. The breakfast selection is good and they have a fun bar and dining room attached to the motel. The night we stayed, there was a wedding reception in the convention center so the place was really crowded, but not very noisy. Their bus picked us up upon our return to Milwaukee in about 5 minutes after I called them.
Certainly would recommend the place for an overnight stay or their park and fly deal.
