I found this hotel via kayak not knowing anything about the brand, but looking for a under $100 hotel. I was able to get a king room for $75.
I was not told that parking was not included until I arrived and was met with an outrageous $23 fee. Give me a break, this is Wisconsin. I live in NYC, you can even find parking there. Chicago, LA no problem. I was not going to accept it. 3 members of the staff flat out lied and said I couldn't self park overnight per city rules and would be towed. I drove around and got the same "full" line as others from parking lot across the street. After exiting I found a spot across the street at a meter, called the police and was told 100% I could park overnight without a problem. In fact you can do it any night with special permission (log into the city's parking website and get the number to call). $23 saved! I hate being lied to and corporate will hear about it.
I get what this hotel is trying to be, but like other perhaps I've seen too much of the world to buy it. Hotel is like a refined youth hostel, not a W for the younger set. A bit chessy, but hey if the kids like it and are wiling to pay, who am I to care?
Would not recommend this for anyone who doesn't have a very good sense of humor.
