The Econ-lodge isn't a 5 star hotel. But it had what I needed. When I arrived at the Milwaukee airport, I called the hotel and the shuttle bus was there within 20 minutes. The driver even stopped by a gas station shop so I could purchase beer for my stay at the hotel. It was quite nice of the driver... More

Was in Milwaukee with some friends for Germanfest and needed a cheap place to crash at night. This is exactly that. No frills, the room was clean and the bed passable, there even was a sparse continental breakfast. Pretty quiet. Really a pretty good setup. Cheap place to crash when you're gonna spend most of your time out touring and... More

I was pleased with the great service and friendliness of the check-in staff. The room I got was great, and the sleep quality was fine. However, I felt unsafe with the people milling about in the parking lot. I also noticed where one room on the first floor had a completely open room to where I was suspicious of what... More

We stay here from time to time if we really need a super cheap place and won't be spending any time in the room except to sleep. They are trying to improve and remodel, but they have a long way to go. Most recent stay, room seemed surprisingly decent, until I looked up. Yuck. Once again, why did we stay... More

We opted for the Econo-Lodge for a park-sleep-fly package because the price was great! In retrospect, I will gladly pay the extra 40 dollars to not have that experience again. The room was small and not terribly clean. We chose to stay at the hotel the night before our flight, because we had a very early morning flight. The gentleman... More

First of all, let me say that I have stayed at other EconoLodges (in Montana) and have had great experiences with them. However, the Milwaukee Airport site should be disenfranchised! I have already recorded my complaints with the Choice Hotel group and I am sure they will have to take a close look at this place. I booked 2 rooms... More

friendly staff but the state of the building could use some TLC. The price matched the quality of this Econo Lodge. After all, Econo is in the name. We didn't utilize many of the amenities but the elevators were in working order as well as their ice machines.

Very decent for the price, a little worn down around the edges, but clean and over all nice accommodations. Shower and linens were clean, mattress was in good shape, and there was a usb charger clock which came in handy for charging our phones.
