Holiday Inn Express Milwaukee- West Medical Center
Ranked #6 of 7 Hotels in Wauwatosa
Reviewed May 16, 2012

We recently stayed at this hotel for one night.I found the staff to be above average,from the front desk to cleaning crew.
I agree with a previous reviewer,that the hotel is a bit tired.I have usually found holiday inn express to be very up-to-date.This one needs a renovation,new doors, new carpeting, new furntiure,new window coverings.
The bed was comfortable to me.The breakfast was adequate.
The location is good,with a nice mall nearby,Milwaukee not far away.

This hotel is perfect for the business traveler. Great location in suburban Milwaukee, free parking, free internet, best free breakfast I have seen in a long time, very clean rooms, efficient front desk staff, quiet.

Only complaint would be that the room I was in #337 some of the funiture needed minor repairs.

Any business traveler road warrior would be happy here.

Room Tip: neaby Mayfair mall for restaurants

Check in was fast and friendly. Rooms are huge and very well equipped and comfortable. Bathroom a bit small. No usable gym and breakfast is a heart attack on a plate, but there are better options nearby for both.

For the money, this place is fantastic. Free internet, lots of cable channels, big desk, etc.

Close to Mayfair and Interstate but no noise.

We've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express hotels throughout the US and this one is about average in overall quality. Upon check-in, the TWO of us received ONE complimentary cookie, ONE complimentary bottle of water, and ONE tiny bag of pretzels. Why not two of each?? We had already settled in and noticed that the shower had many short black curly hairs throughout the surface of the tub (eww!) which made us wonder if it had been cleaned at all. The exhaust fan inside the bathroom was very loud (almost uncomfortably so). The "high definition" TV reception was very grainy. The breakfast was good - all the standard fare that you usually would expect at HIE locations. Location of the hotel was good also -close to many restaurants and local businesses. We only stayed there for one night...had we been in town longer we would have found another hotel to stay at for the additional nights.

Room Tip: Ask for one where they have cleaned the bathroom!

Someone reviewed this hotel as "somewhat tired". This is a pretty good description. I never got to the gym this trip so no comment there. The breakfast was good and the front desk staff was above average. Has lots of recommendations for dinner and about 10 delivery options. Room was quiet and bed was comfy I would not hesitate to stay here again. If I was not a holiday inn club member and didnt only stay at this chain I'd probably go elsewhere.

I stayed for two nights here and was somewhat disappointed in this property. I found the whole place to be "somewhat tired" in appearance. The bed, although comfortable offered 4 small, squishy pillows that were dwarfed by the King Size bed. I was a little put off by the stains on the couch and on the bedspread. Kinda yucky! The bathroom fan sounded like a jet engine and was so annoying I avoided putting the light on. The staff was friendly enough and the breakfast was decent but I don't think I would stay here again.

My father and I stayed here one night while in Wisconsin for an appointment at Froedert Hospital and Children's Hospital. I use a wheelchair for distance and we asked for a room of the first flor, but found it was next to the 24 hour fitness center, so we requested a new room. The next room we we're given was on the second floor far away from the elevator. The room was fairly clean, but smelled rather musty and the curtains were disintegrating. There was a nice new flat screen TV and great selection of channels. The beds were comfortable, but if you plan on more than one night there, I would bring your own pillow because all 4 pillows on each bed were mushy and provide no support. The sheets seemed "tired" and were basically threadbare with pilling.

For one night it was fine, but longer than 2 or 3 days, I probably wouldn't stay here.
