Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Nice Style and look
This hotel doesn't look like a traditional hotel. It was designed to look like a bed and breakfast. It is very clean, great location, and the room was nice.
HOWEVER - The toilet made a horrible noise every time you flushed. It took forever for the tank to refill. Seems like this is an ongoing problem based on other reviews.
Only one side of the toaster worked and only one pancake machine worked. During high volume of visitors to the dining room, they ran out of food.
Also, they don't make it clear where you are to sit when there is overflow. they have an adjoining room but no signage.
The GOOD NEWS is that it's clean, nice, staff is very professional and friendly, the room was very comfortable. We were on the pool side and with lots of people, we didn't hear them. I think you will like it. Just be sure and book your room during the special rates because the rate increases quick.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carole50 Very Comfortable Stay
Our experience at your hotel was extremely positive and we enjoyed it very much! We spoke with several of the staff, dining room and cleaning staff, and they were always very polite and welcoming. The Front Desk personnel were helpful with the questions asked. We did not have the chance to use the pool or whirlpool, but plan to on our return stay which will be booked soon!
Our only suggestion would be that the turkey sausage served at the breakfasts be eliminated. The flavor was too much like turkey and not enough 'sausage' flavorings. We prefer real sausage or bacon.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by TimS1234 Just a place to sleep...
If you just need a place to sleep it is fine however I would not want to spend any time here. Very dark, not too clean and overall not a experience I enjoyed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Not all Holiday Inn Express' are created equal
Let's just say that I have come to expect a certain level of freshness, cleanliness and updates throughout the Holiday Inn Express' system. This one however appears to have been from another chain in a previous life that has yet to receive, or ever will receive the makeover. I am sure there are other great amenities to this hotel that I was not able to take advantage of, but as a frequent traveler who does not often use those amenities all I am looking for is consistency in my experience. A dingy looking, aged looking and musty smelling hotel is not consistent with those experiences. Up to this point I thought I could rely on this. But I must perform more diligence in the future. Also, of note, this location is in something of a food desert - the "steakhouse" 1/2mile down the road barely counts as food. So if you are passing through waiting for a flight without a car, your dining options are severely limited.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Koelling14 great place and beautiful pool!
Our stay was wonderful! Rooms were very nice, pool area was clean and kid friendly. Not very deep but definitely gym for all ages! We had car trouble the next morning and had already checked out (9am). The front desk lady was EXTREMELY helpful and friendly. She allowed us to check back in so our 3 children could relax and watch TV so we could get our car fixed. Staff was awesome, hotel was awesome!)

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NCMillers Not Greeted as Platinum; Room smelled like sewage -- moved to new room; Pretty on the outside...
The room smelled of sewage. The key card access was screwy. Staff was not very helpful. Pretty on the outside.
I was not greeted as a IHG Platinum member, offered a treat as such (or bonus points), nor asked about getting an upgraded room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brad2010 Would Return
This stay was short, in at 10pm out at 5 am the next day. The facility is close to the airport, rooms are clean. One inconvenience experienced, I didn't receive my bill under the door and no one would answer at the front desk so I'm having to wait for the bill to be posted online. This may have been the result of my early departure. Nice steak restaurant (The Branded Steer) down the street.

The staff always does a great job in making me feel welcome from the front desk to housekeeping to breakfast group. The room are spacious and comfortable. The property is beginning to show some age but still kept up nicely.

Good place, staff is a little below average. No mention of IHG status or upgrades. Decent place, Pool is large and has a play area. This would be great for kids.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GolferMike36 Great location, comfortable room and attentive service
This remains one our favorite places to stay in Milwaukee, especially for Summerfest and State Fair. Park/ride lot for bus service to these events is actually walking distance (or a very short car ride) away. Beds are always comfortable and room clean. Staff attends to our needs (thanks Eddie - front desk). This location has never disappointed and will remain one of our favorite destinations.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 So-so
We have stayed at this hotel a few times now. The experience was okay but in the future I will consider other hotels.
The second last time we stayed here we had a friend staying as well. My wife is in a wheelchair and we need an accessible room and in this case one that had a pull out couch as well since there was only one bed. They were able to give us one. I knew I was going to stay at this place again so I requested the same room to be booked for us. The room was spacious for wheelchair maneuvering. But when we went to check in last time they had switched rooms on us and put us in a room where the accessible bathroom did not even have a shower chair. The path to the bedroom was so narrow that my wife could not even get into the bedroom.
The breakfast is okay. The time before last we stayed there was some confusion between the check-in staff and breakfast staff. We were told that breakfast was from 7.30AM to 10.30AM and food was being put away at 10.00AM. Come to find out that it was from 7AM to 10AM. We were not the only ones; at least we had gotten our food but few others were just walking in.
In spite of all of this I would like to commend Mario, the service person. He was extremely professional, courteous and helpful in resolving the accessibility issues we had during our last stay. Comment to management - hire more people like Mario, ensure that there is communication between different staff groups and train staff, especially the reservation staff with regards to needs of people with disabilities and follow through on reservation requests. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by packfan16 Very clean
We used this hotel as my husband had a scheduled surgery at a local hospital so I only needed the hotel to sleep in so didn't really get to experience any of the accommodations except to sleep. The room and bathroom were very clean which is the most important factor.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by peaches57 comfortable bed and great service
for a hotel bed, it was very comfortable and the pillows were the best I've slept on in a hotel. The room was clean. The service was great. The pool area was clean. I really enjoyed the hot pool. The breakfast was very good. And the dining area neat and clean. I really enjoyed my stay and would not mind coming back the your hotel. Thank you so much.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Volodath Little things...
So if I had written this review the night of my stay, I would not have been happy. So many little things were off in this hotel. Peeling wall paper. Odd marks on the wall. Computers in the foyer having difficulty. Only one exit from the parking lot (that also doubled as the entry). Little things. And then big things like the thermostat being inside the heater... which had a hard time keeping the room a constant (and enjoyable) temp.
Then we got to breakfast. This place has a great breakfast. Really turned things around.
Then the extra 10k points that we paid for as part of the room package didn't post. Not pleased about that. Or about the actual accommodations. 4 stars on the breakfast... probably 1.5 everywhere else. It would have been much more bearable had the points posted properly. Internet was fast enough, and the front desk was nice. Upkeep pictures included in the review.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jac636 Very nice experience
My husband and I checked in during a very busy time. There were 10+ people in line to check in, but we only waited 15 minutes or less to check in to our room. We found our room to be very clean and the space exceeded our expectations.
Our only complaint for our three night stay was that the pool was ideal for children, with a shallow play area and depth only reaching 4'0", but no room for the adults to swim. The hotel did have a nice sized hot tub, which we used without complaint.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bwolff Updated and clean
The stay was mostly very good. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful however breakfast staff was not as accommodating. The rooms were very quiet with comfortable beds. The overall cleanliness of the hotel was excellent. The pool area was great, especially for little kids, just make sure you have your bracelets with you as they do check and enforce that rule. The only negative was that breakfast "closed" early so we were left only getting the left over muffins and juice as opposed to the full complement of food. Plus both pancake machines were not working both days we stayed further limiting breakfast choices. Overall the stay was very good.

This hotel was updated and clean. The front desk staff was friendly upon check in and check out. The breakfast was nice, and the pool and fitness center are nice. My only problem was that our room never got cleaned, and we ended up making our own bed and taking our towels to the front desk to get new ones.
