“Clean, affordable with very nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We stayed at this hotel while in Milwaukee watching some baseball games. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and a good value. As with most airport hotels it was a bit far from downtown, however, since we rented a car this posed no problem. I would recommend this hotel for anyone passing through on the nearby interstate, or flying in and out of Milwaukee. It does have an indoor pool with a nice play area for children and a nice breakfast.

Room Tip: Get a room that faces outside and not the pool.

5 of us were on our way to an all inclusive resort in the Dom.Republic & flew out of Milwaukee. We stayed 1 night on the way down & 1 night on the way back. We love the PARK & STAY option. We left our cars there for 7 days & knew they were safe. We were greeted by friendly desk clerks & were offered a bottle water with a granola bar. When I saw my room was a handicap room I asked to be moved & a desk clerk came down to the room with a new key to another room; it was pool side!
Each of us were given a pass for free drinks at a motel close by with a bar. We took advantage of them! Only negative was the pool/hot tub closed at 9:00 p.m. which we believe to be much to early since we didn't get in them until 8:30.
The motel shuttle took us to the airport at 4:15 a.m. for our flight at 6:00 a.m. Returning they picked us up at 11:30 p.m.
Very nice Holiday Inn Express!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool side room that opens into the pool area!

This is a nice hotel and pool area. Friendly, helpful staff, clean and comfortable rooms. We were greeted with warm chocolate chip cookies and efficient desk clerks at check-in. Park & Fly was very reasonable by booking over the phone, using the toll free national HI number. The online price was higher for some reason. Our shuttle was prompt going to the airport and only required a short wait for pick up at the end of the trip. We traveled with our kids and grandkids and all three generations would give this place 2 thumbs up. The breakfast was the usual freebie fare, but the kids especially liked the pancake robot.

This is a better than avereage Holiday Inn. My room was nice and spacious. I was on the road side of the hotel and if I was sensative to noise this would have bothered me as the bus stop and road noise was noticable. The staff was friendly and recognized my Priority Club status with a water and granola bar. Fitness room had weights ++++ but did have a bike ----. Breakfast was standard holiday inn barely edible food. Perfectly accpetable business travel place.

There is nothing wrong with this hotel, that being said there is nothing memorable about it either. There is no pool for adults to enjoy, it's primarily a children's pool with play area however they do hand out wristbands for hotel guests. Unsure why? It is REALLY nothing special that would require wristbands. Our room was clean and quiet, however neither sink or tub drained properly and all we could do was deal with it in the morning and inform the front desk at check out. The staff was prompt and courteous, again nothing really wrong with hotel. Breakfast was "ehh" but nothing to really enjoy, typical bagels,muffins and fruit which is fine to grab and go. This hotel is fine for an overnight stay but I ADMIT I do enjoy a bit more relaxation & feeling of pampering in the hotels that I stay in. It is definitely NOT a 3 star hotel, 2 stars yes & maybe a ½ star more for the good staff they employ. If I was catching a early flight or stuck in a snow storm no problems with checking in here but for visiting the city,friends or family I would opt for something more upscale in both area & accommodations.

Good Afternoon ChicagoFirewater,

I do want to apologize to you about your stay. We do require the wristband policy because we used to have a slide and a few play stuctures that we did remove. We do need to keep the policy in place though to make sure that we can still control the pool area with out people bringing in more guests to make it over crowded for people like yourself.

I am glad that you though we had good service as I know we are a limited service property we try our best to make sure all our guests feel at home and are comfortable. I do under stand you had some issues with the room drain. Can you please email me the room you were in so that we can get that corrected? bwinkler@wiscohotels.com

Thank you again for your stay and we look forward to seeing you the next time your in Milwaukee!

Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The front desk clerk was friendly and quick to check us in. Plenty of linens. Breakfast foods were hot or cold as they were supposed to be and a nice selection. Cinnamon rolls were great. Over all, a nice stay and good value. Would I stay again? You bet!

This is a clean hotel with courteous staff.
There is nothing special about the room but it is comfortable.
My room window looked over the pool. It also looked ok but nothing special.
The best part was that there was a hotel shuttle that ran to the airport. Also they have a really good breakfast that was included in the price of the room.
The only thing that bothered me was that the walls were thin and I could hear people watching TV in the other room and it wasn't even turned up all that much.
Good place to stop in your travels but not a destination.
