Good location near the lake but a bit away from the downtown area (15 minute walk). The hotel is all a bit rundown and drab. Friendly enough staff and we had a comfortable stay but felt we could have done better. $15 per night for parking in addition to the room rate didn't make it an economical choice. Don't let...

After reading other reviews on this hotel, I was a little hesitant on booking for a weekend in Milwaukee. However, I couldn't have been more happy on my selection. Everything about the stay was perfect in my opinion. The front desk was cheerful, kind and answered any questions I had for suggestions on where to eat and what to see...

This is a decent building with really low ceilings. Could definitely use some updating, but was clean and usable. Comfortable bed. We had a corner suite room with a lake view and it was a gorgeous view. Heard lots of good reviews about the complimentary breakfast and was SORELY disappointed. Also - a VERY confusing parking situation (cannot park overnight...

I don't really know how to rate this because the service is great. The location is good the beds are comfortable, but it's rundown and lack luster. There are weird areas (like the second staircase) that you really wonder if you were never supposed to see. The dog policy is a little expensive in my opinion and you do have...

I looked up Trip Advisor before I booked this hotel because I wanted a decent place to stay while going to Summerfest. I found that this hotel met my expectations.

The rooms were clean but very small. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The parking lot and entire parking situation was ridiculous. The hotel charged $15/day to park in their rinky-dink lot with spaces so small, an average vehicle couldn't really fit. There was also water dripping and leaving deposits on vehicles. The lot also did not house enough...
