This hotel was exactly what my girlfriend and I needed for some rest on our cross country trip from British Columbia to Ontario. We wanted to spend a day in Chicago but a hotel price closer to the city was completely out of our budget. The Days Inn had a fairly cheap rate compared to some of the other hotels in Milwaukee.
While reading reviews I was a bit worrisome as to what we could expect and upon arrival in the neighbourhood where the hotel was I could see why many people comment on it. It does feel a bit overwhelming if you are not used to the city life but we didn’t have any issues. There is no covered garage and the parking lot is open for anyone to wander through but there are multiple cameras.
My girlfriend and I didn’t feel super confident walking around once the sun set so we took advantage of the free shuttle downtown and took an uber back which cost us next to nothing.
Our room was fine and was perfect for what we needed.
Complimentary breakfast was stocked full and unlimited so take advantage!
I would maybe spend a bit extra money for a nicer neighbourhood if that is a main concern of yours.
