very run down rooms and lots of smells from presumedly people living there and cooking in their rooms. This was close to the airport, and economical. I thought staying for one night would be ok as I flew into town very late, but very sorry I stayed.

Great hotel with full bar and restaurant, great daily rates and weekly rates, near shopping. Friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to Walgreens and Target. Also very close to Milwaukee night life and I took a Miller Life Brewery tour and a City Tour.

I have been staying at the Milwaukee Airport Inn (MAI) on and off most of the summer. The MAI southern Milwaukee and relatively close to the airport, as well as a relatively short drive via freeway to downtown Milwaukee. Apparently this establishment has historically had a rather bad reputation. However the place is now under new ownership/management and is now a safe, clean, friendly place to stay. Currently the MAI is undergoing a makeover with new carpet, paint, modern tv and appliances in the room. The front desk staff are friendly and professional and the housekeeping staff excellent. The rooms are clean, and the value of this place is probably the best in Milwaukee at the moment. Well worth staying here if you are on a budget but looking for a safe clean place to stay. In addition there is a restaurant, the Spring Garden which is part of the same building/management and has excellent food. Hotel guests get a 10% discount on their meals if staying at the MAI.

The hotel isn't clean, the check in time and amount of paper work is CRAZY and my room had to be changed twice; first room no handle on the tub in the bathroom, room number 2 had no hot water and the front desk guy had to go and spend like an hour playing around before I could shower. When asking for a refund or credit for my night I was given a very rude NO but have a good day

They are doing renovations. Great dining onsite. Bed was very comfortable. Pool was dirty and not open. Not sure if they are working on. Appears to have individuals that call this home, however they did not bother us at all. Room was clean, appeared to be new bedding and towels. Overall worth the money. Enjoyed

Where to begin, no toilet paper, tissues. Didn't clean the room one day. Smelly. The only good thing is that the folks that work the front desk are nice. Didn't have the heart to yell at them as it clearly isn't their fault.

Milwaukee Airport Inn was very pleasant and had all the things that I needed which included a microwave and refrigerator with a freezer. I have two small children that are ages seven and eight and we needed a place to stay due to an emergency for 4 days. I would definitely go there again if I ever found myself in a pickle. The staff was very nice and the front desk clerk was very friendly and and I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

Okay so the room is cheap there is the plus. It is however the creepiest and darkest hotel I have ever stayed in. I expected bugs and druggie people to just pop in the room at anytime. Also the chick at the front desk was horrible. She was so awful and beyond rude. I have never had an experience like her before. She is a real treat.

very old hotel-no FREE airport shuttle-is only free 1 way -their fault or shuttle company fault, friendly employees,microwave and mini refrig in room. not close to anything except restraurant next door offers 10 % on a pinch this hotel should do

I have stayed at some old hotels, but this was the most disgusting and scary place I have stayed. They wanted a deposit and I am glad I refused to give them any credit card information. There was blood stains on the bed and the carpet, hair in the sink and body hair around the tub. The door barely shut and locked. Homeless people sneaking in to sleep in rooms they could open doors on. When I said something to the people at the counter, they just said they would keep an eye on it and that they would have house keeping look at my complaints.
