This hotel offers many high end features but lacks the basics! For example: The bathroom is beautiful; you get bath salts and lotion for the spa-like tub, but no soap at the sink! There is no night time staff! Wake up call? Umm, not happening. Coffee pot in the room? Well, yes, there was a coffee machine. I couldn't figure... More

We come to Waukesha a few times each year to visit our son and always stay at the Clarke. The rooms are exceptional, the service excellent and the resturant outstanding. Our stay includes brunch and the corned beef hash and eggs Benedict are the best!

The Clarke was a great hotel stay on the center of downtown. The rooms were spacious and clean. Tge shower was huge and had five seperate shower heads. The staff was friendly and you get free breakfast to include an omelette bar. The only downside is the lack of parking forces you to valet park for 20$ a night. Valet... More

We stayed here a couple yrs ago and like what the new owners have done. For the price, the room was huge. There was a desk and chair, a Keurig and fridge, lounge chair and ottoman. The furniture was a bit tired looking but the bed was extremely comfortable. As another guest noted, bring your own pillows though. Theirs are... More

Like the "Disappointed" and "Very Disappointing" reviewers, we really wanted to like this hotel. After reading the positive and negative reviews, we thought we'd give the hotel a try since the rooms look very nice on the hotel's website, several folks really seem to like the place, and the location was perfect for our needs. Like the one reviewer stated,... More

Traveled to Waukesha for business. Found the Clarke Hotel through... Trip Advisor :-) The reception on the 2nd floor was just a small desk but the receptionist was very delightful. She got me my key while she finished checking me in so I could go to the room and use the restroom. The room was clean and luxurious the bathroom... More
