“Nice place.”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

We've been going to this hotel for our after Christmas get-away vacation for the last 3 years. We like the rooms, the pool and the hot tub. We always get rooms on the first floor right near the pool. We were disappointed this year to discover that the pool was freezing! We were not told when we checked in that there was a problem with the pool heater. Since there were 6 adults and 4 children that normally use the pool the fact that we couldn't was really disappointing.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor by the pool (when it's heated) are the best.

I try to take my kids to this hotel about two to three times a year just for swimming. There are other hotels in the area but they either have a "water park" which is usually just a kids area or the water feature to the hotel is crazy expensive. I enjoy best westen. Good rates and decent service. I was a little bothered by this last trip however. When the front desk asked me what brought me in today I specifically said "my kids want to swim.". After we went up and dropped our bags in our room we went to the pool only to find out that the pool was closed! I went back to the front desk and asked how long before the pool would be open and a different attendant said he didnt know and would have to wait on maintenance to let him know. I let him know the only reason I came in that day was to swim. I own my home I don't need a place to sleep. I asked if he could contact maintenance and ask approximate what time so I knew whether or not to even stay. They informed me the water is not warm but if we wanted we could swim. I asked my kids and of course they wanted to give it a try. So we did. It was freezing! But my kids were happy and continued going from the pool to the hot tub. Then to top it off my son slipped and cracked his head open. Resulting in a trip to the emergency room and stitches to the back of his head. We left in a hurry and didn't even get to sleep there so the kids didn't get to have an awesome time as normal but overall it was decent because they were near a pool and that made them happy.

Becky at the front desk takes care of any needs or questions that arise. I stay there once a week every week and Becky handles check-in and reservations with ease and efficiency. Her smile is contagious and she is VERY courteous. She makes you feel at home the moment you walk through the door!!

My first trip to Milwaukee on business. Shuttle service from the airport was prompt at 9 PM. This hotel sets the example for hospitality! The hotel owner, management and staff took good care of our large group while we utilized meeting space to work on an important project. A nice breakfast is included with your stay. One lunch in the bar and grill. Second lunch was brought into our meeting room and the food was awesome, just like our dinner the night before which was served as if we were in a four star restaurant.

Room Tip: Several guest rooms open to the pool area which is very inviting.

Thank you for your kind review. I am pleased you found our hotel to be a place of superior service with clean and comfortable accommodations. Truly superior customer service is a dying thing and that's why we have made it our utmost priority, ensuring sure you feel like a guest, not a simply a customer, when you are in our care. Did you get a chance to enjoy any of our new hot made to order breakfast items? The Denver Omelet is a must try item. Our entire staff look forward to your return, which we hope will be very soon.
