I decided to get 5 review for this place because the staff was so friendly and wonderful and Ryan, the shuttle driver saved my life and helped me so much. I just arrived here today from Los Angeles for Barista Guild of America camp that takes place tomorrow at Delavan, WI. I booked my flight for June 1 in order to spend one night at the hotel before heading for the camp. One of the challenges for the camp for barista to prepare his own signature drink espresso based beverage. I had with me coconut milk and orange blossom honey that TSA at LAX airport confiscated from me. I arrived to Milwaukee a bit upset. I did not rent the car and there is no place around where I could find ingredients needed for my beverage and the closest WholeFoods is 12 miles away and would cost me just 40 each way to get there. Ryan, was super nice, very friendly, amazing person and he offered to find what I was looking for even though he never heard about coconut milk. I gave him the name of the brand "So Delicious" and on his way to drop off passengers at the airport he stopped at one supermarket. I was at the lobby talking to receptionist and phone rang. Ryan was on the phone and made my day. He found coconut milk and orange blossom honey. He brought it back to me, and of course, I paid him back and tipped him as well. I love when people trying to help when help is needed, if it was some big corporate chain like Hilton or Marriott, I guarantee that this won't happen.
The room I got was clean. I asked for iron and iron board and it was provided. Super friendly and nice people working here. If you are looking for inexpensive place to stay by the airport in order to catch your next flight or take an Amtrak train or head elsewhere around Wisconsin and you feel tired or need some relaxing moment, count on this super friendly people here and chose this place as your next stopover. They have free wi-fi, free breakfast and great parking. If you need to find something that you have hard time to find or have no means to move around, count on Ryan. He will be glad to help you out.

If you don't mind dives, stay here. The rooms don't look like they've been updated since the 60s. The free wifi kept making me log back in so often that it wasn't worth the trouble to use. I wouldn't have even stayed here, except I decided for a last minute trip to Milwaukee. Then I realized it was Harley's 110 and the riders had already booked all the good rooms. Instead of paying $40/night for a dive hotel, I paid $150... which is really why I'm so salty. That being said, I can't believe the other reviews were so good... This is a DIVE!

If you're looking for an inexpensive hotel to stay close to the airport, EconoLodge is the place. They offer free airport pickup, WI-FI, and a basic complimentary breakfast. The rooms are bland but clean. The walls are pretty thin and road noise is audible so if you're a light sleeper you might want to reconsider. Otherwise if you're low maintenance like me Econolodge will suite your needs.

Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. First, the person at the front desk would not let me check in. I was down there for medical reasons and BEFORE booking the hotel, I called and asked if it was fine that it was under my moms name. The person said it was perfectly fine. When I got there, because I was not my mom, I could not check in. The manager or supervisor came out, I told him earlier I called and it was fine, he let me check in after standing there for about 10 minutes.
The rooms are crap. The beds are uncomfortable and the shower is so small. Hardly any hot water and the pillows are almost not even there. The hotel phone hardly worked in the room and the breakfast was all stale. I had to walk to the McDonalds a block away.
I was so not impressed, never staying there ever again and not telling any friends or family to stay there. I felt unsafe my whole stay. I felt as if Norman Baits was about to come out of one of the rooms.

After arriving late in the evening, and with an early flight to catch the next morning, we had asked, and paid additional dollars for, a roll away bed to be brought to the room. When the bed was brought, it wouldn't actually fit ANYWHERE in the room. We weren't able to use this because we simply couldn't unfold it.The air condition wouldn't stay on in the room and when I called the front desk I was told to "open a window because it was cool out". With our room being on the first floor, and with the screen window already cut by somebody from the outside, I wasn't comfortable doing this. The hotel phone also would not work, even to dial the front desk. All in all a pretty miserable experience. I won't be staying at this property again and certainly wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

Paying $55 for a room, I don't expect the Ritz, but I also don't expect a shit hole. I can ignore the fact that nothing has been updated since the place was built. I can even get over the fact thay they have tube televisions (do they even make those anymore?). But a broken toilet seat, stained (I hope stained and not dirty) towels, water damaged "art work", a bad shower with little hot water pressure, a ripped shower curtain, stained carpet, faulty and badly placed lighting I cannot ignore. The bed is uncomfortable, the bedding is tattered and the pillows (which you are unable to get extras of) are flat as a pancake and hard as a rock. I've stayed in youth hostels that are more welcoming and comfortable. Never again.

Stayed twice in a months time. Room was nice and bed was firm, sheets clean. Carpet ok, paint ok. Large tv quiet and cozy.
Second time noisy neighbor watching tv at 1am kept us up . Desk clerk was argumentative and defensive had to threaten leaving hotel altogether to get room changed. Lacked customer service etiquette altogether.
Hallway carpets are dirty and need to be replaced. Also lingering second hand smoke smell. Need air filters or fresheners. Windows need to be cleaned as they were disgustingly dirty.
Rooms could use some remodeling like taking out the oversize couch from room with king bed in it and adding a second chair so two people can eat a meal together.
Place has potential and its a shame owners don't put more into simple fixes to make it a better place. There are 10 other motels within a very short distance and one would think competition would be fierce for a customer
The day time concierge was very helpful and friendly. Would stay again but hope they read this review.
