This hotel has the best hot breakfast. Cook your own omellets, belgian waffles, pancake,sausage,hashbrown, mmmmm. The heated outdoor pool really hit the spot with all of the hot weather.The staff was very nice. This place was great deal for the money. I will be back

I had a quick trip here last month.. Overall the hotel needs a little remodel.. Some paint and elbow grease would go a long way.. The outdoor pool is a good size and is heated.. The rooms were a little small but did the job for sleeping.. Right off the highway on the way to Milwaukee.. The breakfast is definitely the best part of the hotel.. Make your own everything (pretty much?)

Breakfast is the highlight here. Make-your-own Ham Cheese Mushroom Omelet, Pancakes, Waffles, or Crepes. Biscuits & Gravy or choice of four sugary cereals (no non-sugared corn flakes or cheerios).

Not near downtown and not much nearby, but good freeway access. Old but clean. Questionable-looking outside and hallways, but nice inside room. Friendly staff. Old, but comfortable beds (some very old-looking mattresses stacked up in hallway). Good A/C. Fridge and Micro in room. This place shows its age, but appears to be reasonably well maintained.

Good water pressure with lots of very hot water but be careful; the hot and cold were reversed in my good-sized shower (shower only, no tub in my single king room). Good work desk, but needed an extension cord to connect PC. I’d stay again for the low price and good breakfast, but not the luxury or location.

This location is very convenient -- right off the expressway, not in the middle of congestion, yet close to everything. Rooms were nice, with fridge and microwave. Found rooms clean and comfortable. EXCELLENT free breakfast where you can make yourself pancakes/crepes (with fruit filling) or an omlet. (Both waffle makers were broken and no cream cheese for bagels were our only complaints). Pool area is small, with a view of the parking lot or expressway. It could use a tree or other shade.

At first I thought it wasn't too bad. The desk clerk was nice and helpful. Although it needs a major scrubbing & or painting. I think they just surface clean. The beds were ok to sleep on. My sister had ants on her in the room. I found a worm of some sort that had lots of legs on the bathroom floor. The hall where the Ipods or whatever they were had a couple of large spiders doing their thing. The eating area was okay and the breakfast was better than most (and free). The pool needed the surface cleaned of bugs, but was warm although small. Big enough to cool off in. If you are there to rest it might be a problem. The halls are tiled and you can hear everything through the doors. If there are kids staying there, they don't talk low or walk anywhere so the sound is amplified by the tiles. I probably wouldn't stay there again unless I had no other choice. Linda T
