“Great Downtown Location, great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed at this hotel for the past weekend while attended a wedding. Clean, rooms, nice firm beds, a bit dated, but well appointed. With a little work could be a luxury boutique hotel. Friendly, helpful staff, fun night spot (Aura) attached. The roof top observation area was closed, unfortunately. Great location within walking distance to the museums along the shore, neat appearing, condo neighborhood. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are pretty much the same, some smaller than others, We saw four different ones

Our family met in Milwaukee for a weekend near the lake and we were happy to get a great rate at the Park East. We were informed at check-in that there would be no AC available but that our parking would be free as compensation. It was a warm weekend, but we were generally comfortable except for our pregnant daughter whose room was not cool enough. The rooms were clean and quiet and the beds were very comfortable. We loved the location and were able to enjoy long walks on the lakefront and plenty of places to eat and drink close by. We also loved the fantastic view on the rooftop patio, although the hotel should add some chairs up there. We were disappointed that our request for a 1-hour late checkout was denied. However, we would definitely choose the Park East in the future.

I booked this hotel as one of Hotwire's "secret hotels." I had read online that they were in a transition from a Comfort Inn and needed some more updates. Overall, I was pleased with the stay. The property itself is not luxury, but it is trying. The hotels is dated and a little shabby, but the beds were comfy and my view was great.

The front desk service was lackluster, but sufficient. It seemed they were training a new person when we checked in, so the process took a little bit longer than necessary. There wasn't very much interaction and we were given our keys (which stopped working after the first day there...)

We also spent some time in the bar, which is a throw back from the 70s or 80s. The bartender was very attentive, but the pours were small. The bartender was very chatty, but a little too liberal with his personal/political views.

I loved the roof view. From the top you can view the city and the Lake.

Breakfast was the same as everywhere. There were some pastry, eggs, and juice/coffee. I didn't partake, but my sister said it wasn't horrible.

The price was great, and I would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a lake view

Hotel was clean, location was close to downtown Milwaukee. Only complaint was we had to pay $10.50 a day for parking. Rooms were fine, a little small but did the job, I would recommend this hotel more for a business stay not so much families.

We stay in this hotel because of the promotion, the price is cheap enough but we need to pay for parking! We have better options, but we still stay here because of it convenient. We can go out to eat, walk around and do something we went.
The room we stayed was smells bad, I were gonna perfume the room to get a better scent.

Room Tip: Bring your own perfume in case you get a funny room like me.

We had an overall pleasant stay here. The rooms were out dated but everything was clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was okay, coffee was decent as well. the staff was all really friendly. after checkout I used the guest computer to print boarding passes; the computer was absolutely archaic. Only one of the 2 old computers you could supposedly print from, but the printer didn't work. The man at the front desk was wonderful though and was able to help me from his computer. Their were issues in the parking garage with liquid leaking from the ceiling. We parked on the top floor as instructed so it was fine. Great location and the view from the rooftop was lovely.
