Super 8 Milwaukee Airport
Ranked #47 of 55 Hotels in Milwaukee
Reviewed 24 June 2014

We were attending a music festival in Cudahy and decided to stay nearby rather than make the hour drive each day and night. The staff were all courteous & helpful. The room was clean, and everything worked. Parking was ample. The breakfast was a bit better than some continental breakfasts, with the inclusion of boiled eggs, and a waffle maker for fresh waffles. Despite the proximity to the airport (immediately beside it), we heard no planes at all while at the hotel. A great stay...an economy hotel delivering non-economy service.

Needed to book a room in the MKE/ Cudahy area in a hurry and an "executive" (read larger, higher priced) room at this Super 8 was my only option. I was a little leery of the Super 8 brand but this one was above average as well as very convenient to the airport and surrounding area.

Positive: The "executive" room is larger than the regular room and apart from bed and bath, also has a separate sitting area with couch in addition to armchair, as well as a work desk. The room itself and some of the fixtures (tub and toilet) looked old but the room was nicely decorated (art, decorative bedspread, etc.) and the sink, mirror, microwave and fridge all looked new and nice. A/C was provided by an older looking window type unit but it ran like a champ and really cooled the room. The shower had good water pressure. Free Wi-Fi also worked very well. There is a free breakfast consisting mostly of cold cereal, juice and waffles but that was enough to get me going in the morning.

Negative: Chest of drawers had one drawer that would not stay shut and just drifted open by itself once in a while even though I had nothing in the drawer. A coffee table in front of the couch would have been helpful since when you sit and relax on a couch it would be nice to have someplace to put your coffee cup, laptop, magazine etc. other than the floor or the tiny end tables (one of which was also the nightstand for the bed so had the clock and lamp and phone already on it). I'm not a fan of having carpeting in the sink area - should be tile because carpeting always gets wet and gross from the sink. When flushing the toilet, it was necessary to hold the handle down for about 10 seconds or it would not fully flush. Only 2 towel sets were provided and they were definitely "budget quality" tiny towels.

Housekeeping - day 1, I was out from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm and when I returned noticed that no housekeeping had been done. I mentioned this to the housekeeping staff (when I went to ask them for two fresh towels since I was completely out) who said my room wasn't on their assigned list, the housekeeping manager who said I was on someone's list but apparently was missed, and (next day) the front desk who asked if I had a "Do not disturb" sign up (the answer is no and even if I had I would have expected a phone message asking if I wanted housekeeping). The housekeeping manager did offer to send someone to do housekeeping but I said no as it was already after 5 pm and I needed to get ready for an event that night.

Day 2 - housekeeping did come on this day and got everything in proper order.

Note that other than breakfast there is no restaurant at this hotel and they direct you to the Best Western down the street. There are other restaurants on the same street like Denny's, the Final Approach, and Subway, and also a 24 hour McDonalds, Burger King and Dunkin Donuts just around the corner on E Layton. All these restaurants are a short drive by car but a significant to long walk if you are walking. The hotel said they offer a shuttle to take you to the restaurants (as well as to/from the airport) but I did not use it so I don't know how often it comes or if it only runs certain hours. Judging by the very full parking lot, I'd say most of the people staying here have cars.

Overall if I had gotten this room at a discount rate like 100 dollars or less it probably would have been a 4 star but since I booked last minute and paid considerably more per night it rates a 3, even though it is better than average for the Super 8 brand. I would consider staying again but probably only in a lower priced room.

Nice hotel very close to the airport entrance but away from the flight paths so there is very little noise. Clean, comfortable lobby and eating area with a computer to use. Room was clean and everything worked well, staff was pleasant and efficieent. A good place to stay if you want to save a few bucks.

This Super 8 is close to the Airport and convenient for an overnite prior to the early morning flights. In addition to a light breakfast there is a shuttle that drops you at your Airline kiosk. Upon returning just call the Super 8 and the shuttle will be there in a short time.

The people and service were fine, except that the housekeeping staff was under par: they did not leave enough bath linens for us (just two people!) most of the days. We also had problems with the plumbing twice. Just a really old building. Recently redecorated, but needed to be replumbed, etc. instead.
