This hotel is very clean, well-maintained, with an efficient, friendly staff. Parking is right there. This is my 4th stay over the past few years. It is close to the colleges and art museum. There's a beautiful place to walk along the lake right across the street. And a small but useful exercise room. We can always count on it!

We travel with a daughter who has a life-threatening peanut allergy. Usually waffles are the only item she can eat in the breakfast area, but we always check the ingredient list to make sure there's no chance of peanut exposure. At this hotel, my wife asked the breakfast attendant if she could see one of the waffle-mix bags to check... More

What a disaster! First, at check in, there were no room key sleeves for my room keys. (Not a huge issue, but still odd!) This property is soooooo outdated and the condition of the hotel needs MANY updates! My closet door was off the track, therefore not movable! I tried to fix but did not accomplish. The curtain rod was... More

I spent one night in the hotel and left my make up bag there. I called the next day and no-one turned it in. Who steals make up? I hope the maids get a sty from my make up. What ever happened to honesty? Will never stay there again!!!!

This hotel is dated, but the room was clean and comfortable. The staff was courteous and we really enjoyed the stay in Milwaukee. Awesome location in the heart of downtown with easy access to nearly everything.

An okay place to stay, there are better but there are much worse! Did not find the people at reception desk to be that bothered about their guests. The hotel needs an update as it does look tired in places

Staff were friendly enough, room was clean but very basic. Could use some updating for sure. Bar was cheesy. Wish I had seen the rooftop patio but it was only open for limited hours for some reason. Towels were cheap. Front desk was great when we checked in, but new people when we checked out were only tolerable.

There was definitely nothing newish about this place. The front desk staff was clearly focused on anything but the guests, the downstairs bar/disco (?) looked super seedy, and this hotel's heyday was clearly several decades ago. There was nothing disgusting about it, but there was nothing good about it either except that the bed was comfortable and the sheets were... More

If you have traveled to Europe, you have felt this empathy towards the hotel that is old and getting run down but is still trying so hard to be like the new nice hotels. This hotel has the framework of an old hotel - small rooms, low ceilings, small bathrooms and tiny hallways. Everything is clean - probably cleaner than... More
