“Half-hourly shuttle, helpful staff, hot breakfast with protein options!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014 via mobile

Had reserved this hotel through Best Western's own website because it was the best deal I got online, around $110 including taxes. They have an indoor pool, small, but adequate fitness center with elliptical machine and others. It is an older building - you could tell by the elevator, but still functional. The staff was very polite, and the shuttle drivers pleasant and courteous.

It is only a block or two from the airport, but the shuttle was very helpful because of my accompanying heavy backpack.

Air conditioning was great! Decor was homey with a good desk and wifi. Refrigerator and coffee maker in room. Bathroom was clean, and nice granite countertop.

Stayed August 2014, traveled solo

Stayed several times at this hotel over the years. Noted a maked decline in the rooms from last year...wear and tear. Breakfast was minimal. Housekeeping was marginal at best. Needs some refreshing of the rooms with attention to outlets that are minimal or in disrepair. Resturant/bar was good.

We went to the State Fair and our stay at this hotel was wonderful. The staff was friendly and the rooms comfortable. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Very pleasant stay. I would stay here again.

Excellent location to the airport. Nice accommodations. It was nice that the bar was open on our arrival late in the evening, as we hadn't eaten all day while flying, but were able to get a good sandwich at the bar after 10 p.m.

Spent 10 days in the Milwaukee area - location is very convenient to downtown and for tourist activities. Staff was very friendly and hospitable and they took care of all of our special requests. Facilities including indoor pool/hot tub, bar, and restaurant were well-maintained and very clean. Room was wonderful. Will stay there anytime we're in the Milw area.

Although you'd never know it you're right by the airport. The check-in and check-out staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was a good size, clean, and comfortable. I wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy more of the amenities of this hotel.

The remodeled hotel is one of the best Best Westerns we've stayed in in recent memory. The room was top quality and our room was next to the pool, which my wife took advantage of frequently. The location of the hotel was perfect for my class reunion and my wife visiting with her family in South Milwaukee.
