Econo Lodge Milwaukee 06/21/09

Spent the night here upon returning from Northern Wisconsin to visit family and Whistling Straits in Kohler to play golf. Just needed a place close to the airport so we could sleep later before departing for Phoenix, AZ. The hotel is only 5 minutes from Mitchel Field which is great yet it was very quiet so we got a great night of sleep. The continental breakfast was nice and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. Rooms were spotless and staff was very helpful. Internet availability and fitness room and pool as well. Definately will stay here again!!!!

Amazing bargain!

A clean, inexpensive ($50/night) motel near the airport. The only improvement would be if the continental breakfast had fresh fruit in addition to juice. Friendly staff, comfy beds, everything was clean. Highly recommended. We used the parking during our trip, and it was very convenient, at the same price as the super saver, $5 per night.

Nice Affordable Place to Stay..

The Econo Lodge was a nice, affordable hotel to stay. I was in town for business and the hotel and staff was very helpful and accomidating. The room was cool, the furniture looked new and the room was clean and comfy. I also had a micro fridge which came in very handy for left overs or food that i wanted to eat. They had a computer you could use in the lobby if you needed to get online for any reason. I liked the fact they had a free shuttle bus to and from the airport, it beats taking a cab. I would stay there again and refer others there also!

Cheap but clean, friendly and helpful

The other reviews of this hotel seem completely outlandish now that I've stayed there. This place is cheap, no question about it, but it was perfectly clean, the room was well-sized, the staff were friendly and helpful, and I greatly appreciated the free airport shuttle and free speedy wireless Internet. Of course, in a cheap motel you won't get things top-quality -- the shower, for instance, was only a stall, no tub; the walls were thin and I could clearly hear people in other rooms (though none were very loud); and there was no elevator -- so if you can't carry your suitcase up a flight of stairs be sure to request a first-floor room. But I found the hotel entirely within my expectation for a cheap place to stay. The sheets were clean, the carpet was new, the water was hot and the heat was on. I didn't "fear bedbugs" or see strange stains like some other folks reported. The only drawback as someone who came without a car was the long distance from the hotel to downtown Milwaukee. Luckily there was a bus (#19) that ran directly there regularly from just outside the hotel. (Just be aware that after 11pm on weekends, it terminates well north of here.) If you're willing to settle for a half-hour bus ride in exchange for the cheapest hotel in Milwaukee, I'd say it's worth it.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The #19 bus line runs right front of the hotel and will take you downtown in about a half hour. $2 is way cheaper than a cab ride there!

Good Comfort, Good Price

The friendly staff at this affordable hotel might lead you to believe that they have to be that way to make up for beds like rocks, and pilows like sheets... but, this is not the case. The beds are more than comfortable and the pillows are more something found in higher-priced accommodations. Just a couple low points hardly worth mentioning but the only reason i can't justify 5 stars: lack of vending choices, lines on tv screen, and some remodeling noise before 10 am. Overall though, what a great find!

I enjoyed my stay

I was in Milwaukee for business and stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The staff was very accommodating and the room was clean. It is located within easy access to the freeways. I would recommend staying here.
