Ruined my Valentines

We had stayed at this hotel before during the summer and had a good experience which is why we returned. When we got to our room, the bed was practically on the floor and was rock hard. We had to wait to be moved to a different room, which was then acceptable. When we returned to the hotel for some food we were the only ones in the restaurant. The server got our appetizer wrong and our food took an hour to come out. I had ordered a meatless grilled cheese, which shouldn't have taken an hour to make. Half of the sandwich did not even have cheese on it. They took it away and I ended up not eating anything on Valentines Day. Our waitress was barely ever seen and we had to track her down just so we could pay. We will not be returning.

Nice pool!

Reasonable hotel and good location. Best part for us is the inside pool with sky lights that let the sun in! Also the sports bar restaurant attached has pretty good food also.

Good potential not realized

Staff was great. Room disappointed. Lockstep on door loose and deadbolt did not work. There was a second deadbolt that worked. Older carpet saw two holes in non traffic areas. Didn't have enough towels in room for number registered. 4AM wake up call never came. Could have missed start of National Championship Olympic Distance Triathlon. One phone didn't work. Found cord connected broken. Poor lighting in room. Maid service didn't get to room until after 4 PM so we just asked for new set of towels for three people. Hotel was not full. Key cards worked first day, not on second. Had two new sets made since first set new set didn't. Parking rows too close together. Hard for car to navigate and if you park a pick up truck you hold your breath driving past it. Could be a really nice place if they paid attention to the details. Worst Best Western I have ever stayed at. Good helpful and friendly staff, desk, cleaning, maintenance, dining room breakfast staff, managers saw them all for one reason or another. I wish I didn't have to interface with them because of all the problems. Great bones needs attention. In a pinch I would recommend to a friend

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

8 mile easy drive to downtown Milwaukee. Lots of good eating, museums and entertainment spots 15 minutes away. The eastern part of Milwaukee is a great place to visit.

Relaxing

The hallway carpets, flooring and elevator were outdated, squeaky and slow. The pool area was beautiful but a little too hot. The flooring in the pool area is all tile and was very slippery. Overall, was a great stay. Would stay again.

The hotel staff recommended the free tavern shuttle to the sports event we attended saved lots of parking/driving hassles.family friendly shuttle service ok for children.
