Great Stay for the Price

Stayed here just for a few days while traveling and it was a very comfortable hotel with very reasonable prices. I would have liked a few more amenities but it was great for how much I paid.

Cheap and clean

Stayed here for two nights and it was very cheap and clean. Wish it had a better breakfast available but for the price it was perfect.

Just what I expected

Difficult to find the hotel off the main (Milwaukee) road. Room accommodations were average. Staff was very friendly. Comfortable bed.

Candid Camera

It began ok but when we tried to enter our room the keys did not work; took us over an hour to get someone to come unlock the door(new years eve). Turned on the heater and white stuff flew out of it. No shower curtain; tracked someone down to get one myself. Offered one night free and then we were not happy with that they upgraded us to a suite and gave us three nights free. (it took some doing) The sstaff was very nice; wasn't there fault exactly. I can't tell if I was totally reimbursed as I haven't an exact amount to go by. Thank you for allowing me to let you know what is going on. Paula Carter

Cheap but smelly

The staff was helpful, but I should have asked for a different room. Mine was quite smelly, but I suspected that the others were also (extended stay residents) so I opened the window and turned on the fan!

Bathroom was disgusting!

There is no bathroom available in the lobby. So after a long drive, I had to ask, and the staff let me use theirs. But still there shuld be one in the lobby area. When I checked in, I was tired, got my key, went to the room and unpacked. When I went to use the bathroom ... yuck! But since I has tired and had just unpacked, I did not ask for a new room. The bathroom looked clean but it wreaked of urine. Not just a little, but like someone had been peeing on the floors and walls for years. It was disgusting and unbearable. I kept spraying perfume and kept the door closed so I would not smell it. It smelled as bad or worse than most men's bathrooms at a truck stop. In the morning, I went to the desk to ask them to be sure and mop and clean it well. But, since there was only one person on staff, and she was busy I stood there for at least 10 minutes and eventually had to leave without speaking to them. Since I was in town for a funeral, I could not be late and miss the funeral that I had traveled for, just because I needed to talk to them. While waiting in line, I then saw a sign that said that since this was an extended stay hotel, they only clean your room if you ask and if you pay $3.00 extra per day. THIS SHOULD BE SPELLED OUT CLEARLY BY YOU, ORBITZ! AS, I FIND IT DECEPTIVE OF YOU TO NOT TELL ME THAT UP FRONT. IF I HAD KNOWN THIS, AND UNDERSTOOD WHAT IT REALLY MEANT, THERE IS NO WAY I WOULD HAVE CHOSEN THIS TRUCKSTOP/FLOPHOUSE, SUPPOSED HOTEL!
