It is a motel, but distinctly different from most - it feels nice. Lynn worked at the reception when I visited. She went out of her way to help me with my problem (I forgot to bring a charger for my laptop).

My wife and I stayed Saturday after going to our nephews football game. The hotel was close to everything we were doing. The room was just the right size and quiet. The couple behind the desk were very friendly and helpful. We will stay again when visiting, the price was very reasonable.

This place is clean, safe, pleasantly situated close to green walking spaces and is looked after by the most amazing inn keeper, Lynn, who was always right there to provide extra hangers,restaurant suggestions and directions and the history of the inn. They are a self- described no frills hotel so bring shampoos, a hair dryer, lotion. Easy parking and glassed...

We needed a safe and comfortable place to spend several nights while visiting the area. We were not looking for a vacation experience and our budget needed a break. Forty Winks was the perfect choice. Nice area, very comfortable bed, quiet, clean, and a good value. We will be back when we need it!

We found this on Trip Advisor when looking for someplace to stay overnight after a Cubs/Brewers game. For the price it was a real find. Very clean, comfortable beds. Even had coffee and breakfast bread in the morning. No toiletries except bar soap, although they are available for a nominal fee. Down the street there is a bar that serves...

We needed an inexpensive place to stay for a family memorial and this was a great find. It is a little older but the property and rooms were very clean. The staff was very helpful and friendly. You need to be aware that to maintain their low cost they provide no amenities and I was a little surprised to see...

We went to Summerfest and stayed at Forty Winks Inn. It was perfect. It is no frills, but is extremely clean, the staff is incredibly friendly, the price is right and the location is out of traffic, but only 5 miles out of downtown. The desk is only open 7-11 so if you have a late check in you have...

We looked all over for an inexpensive, clean hotel near Miller Park with good reviews. The 40 Winks had better reviews than the very expensive hotels!! The check in process went very smooth and the hotel was one of the cleanest hotels I've ever stayed in. Very impressed!! The room had a microwave and a mini fridge. And the front...

We decided to try this family owned place over the more expensive hotel down the street. Stayed three nights. Friendly and comfortable as well as very clean. They even mailed an earring left in the room before I knew it was missing! Happy we chose this nice little inn. Conveniently close to downtown. Angela P.

The hotel was super clean, we had an oversized room, and it was conveniently located to a number of sites. They have enclosed the front walkways which gives the hotel a unique feel and appearance. Coffee and breakfast breads were complimentary and delicious. The staff was pleasant and sincerely acted like they wanted us to have a nice stay. We...
