Due to weather, we were stranded in Milwaukee for one night and this was the closest hotel to the airport that had an available room. We booked a regular room with a queen-sized bed for $140. For that price, I was expecting a whole lot more than we got, but we didn't really have much choice.
The room was very basic, clean and comfortable. We reserved a crib for our infant son, which was the standard pack 'n play type portable crib - it didn't come with the bassinet attachment, but did its job just fine.
The bathroom was also on the small side, and the tub did drain very slowly, but we didn’t bother calling down about it. Toiletries were nothing to write home about.
I was surprised to find that there was a miniature fridge and a small microwave in our room in addition to the regular little coffee maker, so that was kind of nice to have.
We did visit the pool, which was in a nice little atrium that unfortunately looks out to the parking lot. Despite that, the pool area was really nice and the water was warm.
My favorite part of our stay was Sunday brunch. At check-in, we received two $6.50 vouchers to use at breakfast in the downstairs restaurant. It was a very nice brunch spread, including an omelet bar, and pancakes and French toast made to order. The food was good and the service was excellent.
All in all, not worth $140, but if you need a clean place to stay that is less than 5 minutes from the airport, you’ve got it here.
