I regularly stay here Each time is a superb experience Rooms and beds are clean and comfortable

The hot tub is hot and the pool is clean Deanna and Emily at the front desk are very nice and extremely helpful with all our needs They have been able to recommend a fantastic range of nearby restaurants From dive bars to Classy restaurants and everything in between; not to mention Earl, an attentive driver with a high level of focus who will drive you anywhere within a 3 mile radius of the hotel Overall, my stays here have been top notch and I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to fly in or out of the Milwaukee or just staying for the weekend


We had an awesome stay for my son’s wedding! The hotel is really close to everything I really liked that they have the free breakfast which had a lot of great healthy options I have to throw in that the lady that was there every day was super nice and helpful

The rooms have a fridge and microwave They also have a pool and hot tub It’s really nice going for a soak after a long day The popcorn and Rice Krispies Treats put out midday are also a great touch They also have a nice little sitting area outside where my husband and I enjoyed a cocktail Everyone at the front desk always said hello when we walked by Most importantly the place was clean! My only very minor issue was the shower was weak but I get it you’re trying to conserve waterI would definitely highly recommend this hotel!

Chad Niemi

I liked this hotel for its comfortable bed, clean rooms, courteous staff, airport shuttle, pool and hot tub What I didn’t like was the broken shower switch It let too much water go through the faucet instead of through the shower head in room 221

Also the heat was on when I checked in, which is not something you can change the temperature of, and it was way too hot when I walked in At a 36 degree outside temp, I had to switch to a/c to sleep, and it still wasn’t cool enough (also can’t change the cool temp)

Emily Henderson

This place and the staff was great! I loved my room It was comfortable and clean The fact that they were so nice to our group made it even more pleasant to be there

I was able to check in early without asking, as soon as I arrived to make sure I was at the right place Ms Tina checked me in and it was around noon Thank you Hyatt staff for such a peaceful weekend

Jenny&Jeff Sherman

It’s very close to the airport, which means the shuttle gets you there or back in 5 minutes On the flip side, it’s not downtown or near anything interesting, but you can Uber anywhere Rooms, lobby, and hallways are very clean

Staff is friendly There’s a small bar where you can talk with fellow travelers If you’re a vegetarian or vegan, or if you need or want healthful food, there are apples and oranges near the breakfast area Hotel was quiet during the week Got crazy for a few hours on Friday night, but I think that was because of the local sports team’s victory No complaints As a solo traveler, I appreciate places like this that are clean, convenient, safe, and well maintained Would stay again and recommend to others

Linda Vann-Owens

After reading the latest post I was not wanting to stay here even though I have in the past but I had reservations and didn’t want to cancel My room was great, clean and I’m picky! I was on the street side and it wasn’t loud and I’m a light sleeper I didn’t smell pot in the rooms or hallway

I was on the first floor Breakfast was good, on time, clean and stocked well The front desk was very helpful, super friendly and made sure we were taken care of The pool area was clean and stocked with towels only complaint was it was hot in that room It was a super busy weekend with the holiday, summerfest, ball teams and NASCAR in the hotel, the staff did very well with a full hotel Thank you to the staff for all you did to make my stay great!

Michael Tyborski

Oakwood Motel is a affordable place to stay It’s within three miles from gas stations and shopping areas Visit an ATM before arrival

Guests must pay with cashRoom 3 has a country feel and lighting level It includes a modern television and a compact refrigerator Made in another era, it has one thing this reviewer disliked: a mirror above the bed Age can make it a safety hazardBathrooms are a reasonable size at Oakwood Lodge They provide a collection of small towels and liquid soap My shower worked/Update on July 1, 2019/ Season rate changes and Summerfest brought a rate increase “Take it, or leave it,” is a common attitude here I decided to stayRoom 6 was assigned It is well lit and spacious However, the thick curtains don’t openThe shower, unfortunately, came from a war zone Its control had one temperature range: cold The sink worked I used it to wash my hair


Referred a veteran who needed a place Quiet and outside of town away from traffic Operated by very nice folks who are seniors

Perfect for someone suffering with post-combat PTSD Rooms available for the day or longer term Great for new-beginnings Plenty of parking, tucked way off the road Would also be a hunters “paradise” for a few nights to lay the noggin Nothing special about the room, but definitely worth it Pricing far below market rents which is great when trying to save pennies in the pocket

Samantha Kitzerow

The lady who runs it- her house is on the property

Older, Russian, comes off as “stern” but is the SWEETEST once you conversate w/her & so long as you are respectful! Its a motel on s 27th so like alllllll the others, it’s no Four Seasons, you get what you pay for! HOWEVER she keeps it up, it’s clean, quiet, flat screen in every room, stand up shower and said lady is very accommodating if you have any requests or need anything! There are a few places for good food and even fun- Jim Dandys next door and Mooligans I beleieve it is called Also a few places deliver! All in all for what it is I give it 4/5 stars!

Maddie Meier

The amenities were good but I can’t recommend anyone stay here especially if you’re going to park on premises Multiple cars were broken into, eventually including our own, night after night during my stay Looks like this has been happening for months if not longer, and yet there are still not enough security measures being taken to deter whoever keeps doing this

Zero cameras in the north lot, which is full of broken glass Also, even though the staff were aware that multiple car windows were smashed and a thunderstorm was expected, no one thought to contact us or to put anything over our window, so we found it in the morning and now we’ve got water damage too The waffles at breakfast were pretty good though

Meg Bray

We agree, stay AWAY! We went to the Brewers game& came back to a parking lot of full of vehicles with their windows broken out (at least 5) that we saw driving through to turn around & park somewhere else I’m pregnant & was a bit worried about what was going on We went to the front desk to report it & the front desk said they were aware

We went up to our floor & found rooms of people that were packing up & leaving They were there since Thursday & this was the second time they experienced the break ins They also told us that some of their vehicles were stolen earlier too! Nope, all of our group (8 people) packed up & checked out Being in my 3rd trimester we were not going to risk having our brand new truck stolen or broken into!!! The front desk was unhelpful & cold when we asked about a refund for rooms we never even got to use We simply got a business card for the manager maybe with all this going on the manager should be there at night to help the staff very disappointed on how the situations were treated Especially for those that experienced it more than once! I didn’t even hear a simple “sorry” to anyone involved

Andrew B

I have been staying here on a regular basis for over a year, and while the hotel is nice, the neighborhood is not I have had not one, but two vehicles broken into and windows shattered this week, and this morning there was about 15 trucks broken into And despite being told by Milwaukee police they need to address their lack of security cameras in their parking lot, they refuse to do anything about it

Nice hotel, but I wouldn’t trust leaving your car here This apparently happens all the time

I have stayed here twice with my husband- on the night of our wedding two years ago, and for a small getaway this year for our anniversary I am excited to make it an annual tradition The rooms are just lovely

And don’t get me started on the breakfast! Delivered right to the door and simply gourmet Such a cozy building and your stay will feel like a little getaway

Mike Stewart

This is the second time I’ve stayed here The check-in was seamless and the rooms were beautiful I had a single room and a two bedroom two bathroom suite

The suite was great plenty of storage and closet space and privacy between the two bedrooms The single room was very nice as well I love the showers with the sideways heads give you a very invigorating shower! The breakfast was delicious and was brought to our room since the restaurant is closed The outdoor courtyard is beautiful I will definitely be staying here again

Dauria Wheeler

The hosts were SO nice to help us arrange the rooms as we needed two together The rooms were pleasant and attractive (if darkly painted), beds were VERY comfortable, and bathrooms were absolutely luxurious! Delicious breakfast had plenty of variety and something for everyone in our group to enjoy Highlight of each day was relaxing in the courtyard by the fountain! Warnimont Park and Lake Michigan just across the street was an added bonus

Jax Beach Area Homes For Sale and Rent

We have not tried Sleep Inn until recently We has to grab a room close to the airport for an early morning flight so we gave it a try The drive was only 5 mins or less so the location is very convenient

The check in was a breeze The ladles at the front desk were very polite and helpful The place was well kept and felt safe Tried to take a dip in the indoor hot tub, I couldn’t stay more then 10 minutes, the amount of chlorine was obnoxious the entire pool/ hot tub room felt like being trapped inside of a bleach bottle We got a good night’s sleep The beds could use an upgrade, semi comfortableSeemed over priced for the level of accommodations Highly impressed by the super friendly grab and go breakfast sack they offered at check out at 430 am That was a nice touch, even though it was just a couple of granola bars and a water, they colored on the bag a sweet message Nice touch with that one

JJ Setaro

Traveled here with my family to see the Harley Davidson Museum For the price per night, it was worth it The continental breakfast has all of the standard dishes; scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, bagels, cereal, and the like

The room was okay The beds are comfortable, but after we checked in and got in the room it was really warm We checked the thermostat to see if it was set to cool, and it was That’s when we saw the note on the thermostat saying it was MOTION ACTIVATED to save energy, and to give the room 10-15 minutes to cool down It took a lot longer than 15 minutes to do this After it was cool, everything was fine The TV has channels that everyone will like incase it is a cruddy day The pool and fitness room are small, but was still a lot of fun to end the day Overall it was a great stay

Jenna Litsey

Great selection for breakfast, friendly staff When leaving took our bags to the car then came back in for breakfast After breakfast we went back to our room to check for all of our stuff and hang for another hour before checkout

We weren’t allowed back in the room because they already started cleaning it Mind you we had a do not disturb sign on our door

In a world where it seems many people have forgotten what great customer service is, the folks at the Hampton Inn and Suites GET IT!!I was warmly greeted by Arturo He checked me in quickly, offered help with a couple of requests I had, and all in all, provided Five-Star serviceMy room was clean and spacious

Good availability of food and drinks on the premises (which is also lacking in many places nowadays)I will definitely be returning when I am back in town next month! And the month after that Fantastic experience!

If you want to stay near Milwaukee this is the place to stay Great location near the mall, retail stores, restaurants, bars, and conveniently accessible near the expresswayThe facilities are very clean, with a nice fitness center and nice indoor pool, good free breakfast and most importantly friendly staff

Rose Groshek

I stayed on February 5th The comfortable bed was the only good part and the staff was nice to me personally However, right at check-in, there were some other customers that were upset because they were told the pool would be open and it wasn’t

I didn’t care because I wasn’t going to use it but the way the manager on duty handled it was pretty rough to watch She told them it wasn’t her that gave that information and just said “So do you just want to cancel your reservation?” No apology, no attempt to help them find a different hotel in the area She could probably tell that I was taken back so she was nice to me but I am surprised that she is a manager The next morning, the breakfast set-up was hands down the most nasty breakfast I’ve ever seen in a hotel Pancake maker was broken (other customers said it’s been broken for a few days), fridge was empty, juice dispenser was empty, food spilled every where, and all there was left was cold eggs and cold, greasy sausages I took one bite, spit it out and went to a diner down the street Yuck The manager that morning was nice and apologized but makes me wonder why that area was so neglected Will not be back

Ashley Gabioud

The hotel itself was very nice Would have been one of the best ones we have ever stayed at IF they would have cleaned after the previous clientsThe beds were phenomenal! Not your typical stiff and uncomfortable hotel bed

When we checked into the hotel, we noticed an odor that was musty in nature We thought it was the cleaning solution We got ready for our concert and left for the night When we returned around 2am, the smell was noticeably worse Unfortunately due to time, we just turned on the air, opened the windows, and the bathroom fan to make it bearable In the morning, we noticed there were wet spots and obvious signs of dog feces around the room We took pictures and showed the front desk manager immediately She stated she would talk to her manager and get back to us regarding our stay It has been over 3 months and we still haven’t heard from the hotel and was charge full price on our room Will not be staying there!!!

Brittany Redrick

this was the best hotel stay we’ve had in a long time from walking inside, walking through the halls, and entering the room the entire hotel smelled and looked clean our room was super modern and bright with a big window

you get a light filtering shade and a room darkening shade that you can put up or down the TV is a big high quality flat screen on the wall and the bed was extremely comfy soft sheets and didn’t smell like bleach or really anything at all the huge walk in shower was amazing as well and even the complimentary soap left us smelling good and very soft i would love to stay here again when it comes to the location, you’re about 15 mins from Milwaukee we went to a show at The Rave and it was a convenient drive you kind of feel secluded from the city but still very close to attractions

Mia Fairchild

This was our first stay on our honeymoon and we loved it! My husband found the place almost by accident while looking for an affordable hotel last minute The hostess was very kind and offered a few options for us, including a beautiful room with a lovely spa with a delicious breakfast in the morning The place was beautifully decorated with lots of local art available for viewing or purchase

After checking in, we walked a block or so down the street to a very nice little bar called Sugar Maple The area was very safe and clean and we felt totally comfortable in the neighborhood We have already recommended to all of our family and plan to stay here again soon!

Rosa Pritchard

We really enjoyed our stay at the Muse Mary Ellen and Andrew were great hosts! We enjoyed our wine , cheese and sangria upon arrival and had a lovely chat with Mary Ellen The room was comfortable

I especially enjoyed the jetted tub after a long travel day Breakfast was delicious and Andrew makes a great cup of English tea Location was convenient to the airport Would definitely stay again!

Amelia Fawcett

My husband and I were visiting Milwaukee for a wedding and I’m soooo glad we stayed here instead of a hotel! Mary Ellen is very welcoming and the house is gorgeous There’s lots of interesting decor to look at, the bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom in our suite was like a spa We were also blown away by the deliciousness of the breakfasts and the amazing sangria we got when we arrived

So good I’ve already recommended this place to my family and friends!

I’ll start off my review by commending Addy & Damian (Sorry if my spelling is incorrect)Damian: Upon arriving from nearby work training, Damian was our first welcome He was very kind to our entire team, and got us all settled quickly with rooms near one another

He double checked to make sure we were okay with it too Great Service!Addy: I called today worried about a bathroom bag with over $150 worth of different things Toothbrush, Beard Trimmer, Hair Product, Etc She was super polite, patient, and was very quick in her search of left behind items I’ll have my items shipped to me this week Truly awesome!Breakfast Staff: You’re awesome Very kind and attentiveUnknown: To whomever returned/located my bag Thank you!Outside of just my staff reviewLocation – Amazing, tons of shops, grocery and food within walking distance Not a bad drive from downtown MilwaukeeRoom – Near perfect, super clean and had everything you might need My coworkers & I had suites on the 200 Level Only issue was that the showers were oddly built We were all concerned about the half-glass and about splashing a bunch of water out of the showerIf you need to stay near Milwaukee, I highly recommend based off Staff, Locations, & Overall Cleanliness + Functionality of the Rooms

Kara Chapman

I stayed for about a month, so I got to know the hotel staff very well I would give it a 45, but didn’t want to bring the rating down

Pros: Drexel Town Square is central to Milwaukee and a lot of other local destinations Really good restaurants and shopping (including groceries) nearby The hotel is very clean Upkeep is really nice Housekeeping does a great jobCons: walls are paper thin If you’re a light sleeper, request a room on Floor 4 Customer service at the front desk was mediocre, nothing outstanding for sure Always the manners and pleasantries, but never went above and beyond in customer service, by remembering your name, if you don’t acknowledge them, most associates at front desk won’t acknowledge you I say some, because there were a couple of ladies who worked that were great! The guys that worked there, customer service just wasn’t their passion, and you could tell

Its outdated but is a clean, affordable, and simple motel Great, safe location near highway, attractions, and children’s hospital If you’re looking for a hotel with amenities this is not the place

But if you’re just looking for a place to sleep this is just fine I was in town for my son to have surgery so I just needed a room for a day Front desk was nice and very accommodating with the time frame that I needed the room It was nice that I didn’t have to hike through a big hotel just to get to my room I was able to park right by the entrance and then my room was 1 door down Also ended up being cheaper than what it had said online Would definitely come here again

Tyler Thomas

It’s a nice modest, locally owned hotel Front desk staff was nice, and the check in was very fast compared to most hotels Room is decently spacious

The most important thing to me is cleanliness, and this hotel nailed it Excellent clean rooms especially considering the reasonable price WIFI is decent for the price My only complaint would be that the rooms need more power outlets Other than that I would highly recommend this place for anyone in the area

Cynthia Floodstrand

A modest Inn but extremely clean, tidy and the staff is very accommodating! A very quiet location

comfy beds and room accessories Easy off and onto the highway only blocks from the Zoo !Thanks again to the management and staff for a great visit !

Comfortable, clean, convenient airport hotel My colleagues and I spent a short time at this location Our business and flight schedule requiring accommodations near the airport

Due to our brief visit, my observation and experience with the hotel’s amenities is limited This is not a new property The hotel has been remodeled, rehabbed and rebranded to a Crown Plaza The hotel facilities appeared to be from several decades ago and most likely was built under a different brand ( my guess would be a Holiday Inn??) However, the hotel is clean and well maintained The lobby and common guest areas have been remodeled and refurbished, giving a very pleasant welcoming experience My guestroom was average size hotel room It was clean, comfortable and quiet My room included two double beds, large flat screen TV and mini-fridge In my opinion, the bathroom needs attention and serious upgrades Although I believe it was completely clean, the age of the bathroom fixtures and features gave me not the most pleasant experience In addition, I would have appreciated much hotter water for my shower and shave The hotel has a restaurant, but I didn’t have a chance to dine The hotel has a very nice gift shop adjacent the lobby and front desk I didn’t make a purchase, but I did visit and look around It was well stocked and had a nice selection of food, beverage and toiletries The check in and departure process was very pleasant and efficient Both the evening and morning front desk staff was wonderful Very friendly, polite and professional The hotel provides a complimentary airport service Departing the hotel early morning went perfect; shuttle on-time and very pleasant, safe ride with an excellent driver The only issue my colleagues and I experienced with the shuttle was on arrival at Milwaukee Upon our flight arrival we called the hotel for pickup Unfortunately, it took approximately 35 – 40 minutes for the shuttle to arrive Ordinarily, this is just a small inconvenience issue However, waiting outside in winter temperatures hovering around 10 degrees and ice/snow on the ground, it was quite uncomfortable (especially for me, being a Florida resident!) Once the shuttle arrived the driver never offered any explanation for the delay The drive is only about 10 minutes, but seemed an eternity as the evening driver was driving very fast in winter conditions and playing very loud music In conclusion, this hotel is perfect for short-term stays, especially if you need accommodations near General Mitchell International Airport

Traveling in a post-pandemic era, my expectations for this property were low American “delayed” my flight until the next day and provided a complimentary room The shuttle bus driver was professional, friendly & prompt

The room was clean, spacious & well-equipped with decent wifiWhen you have an airport-centric property, the operation of the shuttle bus to the airport is an integral part of the stay and I’ve had some bad experiences elsewhere The morning shuttle driver was just as professional, friendly & prompt I would stay here again without hesitation

The front desk was nice, and beds were comfortable but housekeeping need to be trained better They came in our room 3 times, unannounced! I have not clue what they were doing My husband had to call the front desk to tell them to make sure it didn’t happen again

The rooms were outdated and we had to switch rooms because the TV in the living area kept going in an out The TV was definitely outdated The ice machine and elevator was out for almost 2 days, and we had to have housekeeping vaccum our room because there were particles on the floor The floors need shampooing My family and I stayed for 4days, and would most likely not stay again

I highly recommend The Courtyard by Marriott at the Milwaukee Airport It is a true haven for flying out of and into the Milwaukee Airport The Park and Fly package allows me to stay the first or the last day of my trip and to park for 14 days at a terrific rate

I’ve had such great experiences with the shuttle The drivers are all very helpful and pick up and delivery is quick My most recent return from a trip was the day after an ice storm One side of my car was encased in ice Dustin graciously chipped the ice off my car windows so I could safely drive home This kind act is but one of many I’ve experienced at this hotel The front desk staff are terrific, friendly, and supportive This hotel is my go to place when I travel out of Milwaukee and back

The first room had a dirty shower with visible grime, everything was dusty in places that could easily be wiped down, food crumbs all over the floor and couch The pull out desk had someone’s toe prints all over itMove to room two, dirty slimy soap dish with a clean soap just thrown on it, black mold all in the shower, and again food crumbs on the floor and couch

There were too many marks left on furniture to make me believe they wiped down surfaces For the amount I feel I was overcharged to stay there (two different prices given) I do not recommend, why pay such good money to stay in a half “straightened up” roomEdit to add response Yes your staff did move quickly to put us in a second room but unfortunately that room was just as dirty, still had mold, and as we were checking out we noticed toe nail clippings along the bed The only reason we kept the second room was because we were already going to be running behind for the event that brought us into town and because my wife used her own cleaning supplies and cleaned up enough of the area for us to stay in a somewhat clean environment So it was actually my wife that made our stay more comfortable with her supplies and her time We do accept your apology and we’re happy to hear it will me addressed so the next couples stay might be more relaxing The outside of the building looks absolutely beautiful and very well-maintained, it would be great if you could put that same energy inside each room so each guest doesn’t have to clean while they’re there

Very convenient hotel near the MKE airportWe were in town for some baseball games and everything was really within 15 minutes of usThe airport is very close, only a 3-minute drive

Breakfast is still the COVID era grab and go for the most part, but they do make breakfast sandwiches and Starbucks coffee drinks if that is your thingThe hotel is fairly quiet aside from the typical late night/early morning traveler noise typical with an airport hotelThe pool is fairly small, but was certainly enough for my sons (12 and 9) to let out some energyWhile we didn’t use the shuttle, we did come and go a lot (by use of a rental car) While we didn’t utilize it, I don’t remember walking in our out of the hotel and NOT seeing the shuttle availableWouldn’t hesitate to stay again when in town

Stayed here a few nights with my family Rooms were clean and large enough I loved having the curtain that could be pulled out to separate the bed from the sofa area

The staff was phenomenal The weekday breakfast lady (hope you don’t mind me making up a title for you!) Was very friendly and went out of her way to make sure there was plenty to eat The weekend breakfast lady was great also The driver of the airport shuttle was very professional and friendly The staff at the front desk were great I have not stayed in other Home 2 properties, but will definitely look for them next time we’re traveling I hope this is a corporate culture It was so refreshing

We loved our stay! The lobby area is very nice They had a hot chocolate bar, water with lemon, bananas and apples at no extra cost You don’t see that often

The woman at the front desk was so nice, I’m a little sad I didn’t get her name She was very friendly, welcoming, and even my girls talked about how nice she was Kindness really does go a long way Our room was nice and clean, we had everything we needed The pool was nice, not too cold, and clean The hot tub is closed We will definitely stay again

Nice big clean and updated room, convenient to airport, restaurants, grocery stores (many options!), highways and local attractions Staff were very nice especially the super-friendly breakfast lady, and the free hot breakfast is better than average Minus one star because the bed was made up with two cheap sheets and a decorative spread – no comforter or blanket at all

I got the extra blanket from the cupboard but it too was very thin It was in the high 30s at night outside so I would have appreciated an actual blanket or comforter and when you’re flying in you don’t have a handy blanket of your own in your car Also be aware that the advertised “kitchenette” only has a microwave, so don’t plan on cooking anything that requires a range/ oven Unfortunately I discovered this only after I had bought groceries that weren’t all microwave-friendly

Booked 3 night at the Knickerbocker Overall, a pleasant place to stay Our experience with the staff was OK

The bed in our suite was not good (very important to me) and overall the suite was clean We had construction jackhammering outside our room the 2 days we stayed there A few areas in our room needed cosmetic work (peeling paint, etc) We ended up being very sick the first and second night and needed to leave the third night There was no accommodating this and they stuck to their no refund or discount policy Overall, if they’re going to be a beautiful hotel getaway with a restaurant and a spa they did not meet my expectations for hospitality, friendliness and environment
