This was a return visit. This time I was traveling only with my 12 year old son. I didn't think he's care one way or another but he kept saying what a cute little room and inn this was. I had ordered a roll away bed for him which was already set up and turned down when we got there... More

The service was outstanding and the room clean and spacious. The complimentary breakfast is very nice, with made to order eggs and other offerings. It is in a nice neighborhood and we enjoyed walking around and to the lake. The only things we did not care for were the exceptionally firm bed and the very small sink area. But neither... More

thoroughly enjoyed my stay at County Clare Irish Inn. The place reminds me of staying with my Irish Nana. The standard rooms are surprisingly spacious, and the whirlpool bath was a nice touch. We had to change rooms during our time here because we extended our stay and unknown to me, a first-timer here, guests pick their room ahead of... More

I had mixed feelings upon walking in our room at the County Clare. It looked a little tired-scratches on the furniture and well used sofa in the living area. But as we stayed there, it grew on me. I figured that perhaps I was not well-versed on what a county inn was. The jacuzzi in the spacious bathroom changed my... More

stayed one night while visiting friends who live across from the Inn. besides being convenient for this purpose the Inn is conveniently located near downtown Milwaukee and the lake. on a quiet residential street/neighborhood. price includes parking (yah!) and a great free breakfast (at the onsite restaurant in the Inn - pick any breakfast menu!). The room is a bit... More

Stayed at the Astor hotel (see my other review) and walked across the street for dinner. Last time I ate here I don't recall it being nearly as expensive- spent $40 (including 20% tip) on roasted red pepper hummus and a grilled chicken salad. I drank water because drink prices weren't listed and I was already pushing it. They do... More

I stayed here on a business trip, as an exhibitor at the Lakefront Art Festival put on by the wonderful Milwaukee Art Museum. I knew my hours at the show were going to be very long and having a place with a restaurant was essential. The pub food was excellent home-style comfort food, delicious and well-prepared, A bonus was their... More

I confess we didn't really know what to expect from the name of the hotel. Surprise!! It was great. Granted, we visited mid-week and stayed on the third floor,but it was very quiet, clean, comfortable and the tub was an added benefit. Also, the staff was very friendly and serviceable. Would not stay anywhere else when we go back. Safe,... More

My husband and I stayed here in June 2015 for a long weekend. The inn is conveniently located near downtown Milwaukee but on a nice quiet street, only a few blocks away from the lake. The room was nice and comfortable, though starting to look a bit dated. The food at the attached restaurant was very good. Free parking is... More
