Best Western Plus Milwaukee Airport Hotel & Conference Center
Ranked #28 of 56 Hotels in Milwaukee
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Spent the night before a vacation flight out of MKE. Price was nearly the same as parking at the airport for 8 nights. Checked in around 6:00, and that went fine although the check-in person was not as friendly as we experience before and at check out, parking has changed as they want you to do long-term parking in the back of the building and the spots are very tight (esp. for a full sized pick-up). Our King room was overlooking the pool and I was concerned about noise, but it wasn't too bad. The room size was good, and while it's a little dated it wasn't terrible. We had time to hit the bar and were surprised how reasonable the prices were for a hotel bar, and food was pretty good. Bed was pretty comfortable.

Called for shuttle at 3:30, and the front desk checked with us at 3:15 to make sure we were up and coming which I appreciated. Check out was smooth and friendly. Shuttle was on time and only about 5 minutes to the terminal.

After we retrieved our luggage upon return, called the hotel for the shuttle and they said 5 minutes. By the time we walked out the door the van was there so were back to the vehicle 10 minutes after retrieving our luggage which was awesome. Driver was friendly.

Would gladly utilize this property again for the same purpose.

We stayed for one night before a flight to Cancun. The outside of the property needs cleaning, there was trash and cigarette butts in the parking lot. The room was very outdated and our door had a huge gap so we could actually see the hallway when it was closed.

The lobby, bar and restaurant were beautiful! The pool area was OK. I think a some point this was a great hotel and could possibly be again with some room renovations.

The front desk personnel and shuttle to the airport were great! The shuttle was right on time going to the airport at 4:30 AM and on the way back at 11:00 PM. Our pilots also stayed at this hotel so the shuttle was already at the airport right before we even called. It is a great service!

Room Tip: We were pool side which was nice because of the location to everything in the hotel

Recently I had the opportunity to visit the onsite restaurant several times during a business trip. Although my visits were weekly or bi-weekly, Dee in the lounge made me feel like I was a regular customer. She was very accommdating with special requests and remembered my preferences between visits. Her exceptional customer service made the visits great every time!

A family event brought a large group of us into Milwaukee and we selected the Best Western Plus at the Milwaukee Airport as our 'home base'. The customer service we received exceeded any experience that we've had at any other hotel. Without going into long details, there were at least 5 individuals that we specifically noted exceeded our expectations (enough to remember their names). This hotel has set the bar very high. On my future travels into Milwaukee, I will be staying here again. This hotel is doing something right!

Room Tip: This hotel has a longer distance from the lobby to the guest rooms. When you check in, don't br...

Recently, I had to visit my hometown and my First Choice has always been Best Western. My stay was wonderful during the 4 nights. I plan on visiting Milwaukee in the near future and will stay hopefully in the same room. The rooms are reasonably priced especially for the total value you receive when you consider a free breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel.

Close to the airport. We were a later flight and the driver was on the way to pick us up when we called. Rooms clean. The angle of the TP holder in the bathroom would drive me nuts if it was in my house, but it's not. Breakfast buffet was good. Staff was very friendly. Easy to get to highway.

Room Tip: Rooms are quieter away from the pool.

When arriving in from our flight we called for a pickup,after an hour and another call we were finally picked up. Hotel is old and needs to be refurbished. King size bed had queen size sheets.The breakfast buffet was ok but the dining room really needed a good cleaning from the floors to the windows. Needs a good facelift ! We ate in the bar area and the food was good and service was ok.
