A native of Waukesha I was looking for a quiet place to stay while I was home visiting family. My room was perfect in every way. The tubs are jacuzzi style. The showers are great. The beds!!!!! Crazy amazing. A lot of work went into this unique hotel. Location is great. Spend your Friday nights walking the streets of Waukesha... More

Great hotel on the main strip downtown! Beautiful rooms and great bartender at the pub in the bar-thanks David! The hallways smelled a little, but the rooms were worth it and no smell in the rooms. All the amenities! Great place to stay if in Waukesha!!

This is a great little hotel for those who like to see a show at Alpine Valley but don't want to camp! Hotel is very clean, rooms are large, and staff is friendly. Added bonus is the hotel is locked later in the evening so it's safe too. Only thing that needs a little improving is the breakfast. The food... More

The quaint hotel is located right in downtown along side the bars, restaurants and fun. Hotel rooms are spacious and very clean. Irish pub located on the main floor has a very European flavor. Complimentary, hot morning breakfast was great. Staff has a very welcoming attitude.

We picked this hotel for a weekend get-a-way because we love their sister hotels..Chateau DePere and St. Brendans in Green Bay. It's the little things that will give you a bad review. 1st was all the construction around the hotel..messy, and a pain for parking. The room was large, but very boring! Really could use some art work on all... More

Nice size room, fairly clean. The shower is really nice with all the different shower heads. Very centrally located...great for visiting Carroll University. If you are going there to watch a game, let them know and you might get a discount. The street is pretty noisy with the bars. Minimal service. Every room is a bit different with size and... More

We stayed here on New Years Eve and were very disappointed. When originally opened this was a nice boutique hotel, but it has been let go, and is not well cared for currently. The rooms are well worn, not clean, tattered furniture, banged up woodwork, soiled carpeting, and poor housekeeping services etc. Situated upstairs over several bars, so it's kind... More

I really enjoyed this hotel. Conveniently located and very charming. The only drawback was the noise from the ventilation system. The room was very large and the bathroom was amazing! Spa tub with a separate walk in shower. Very clean hotel with a very comfortable bed and bedding. Stayed on a Sunday night so not a lot of outside noise.
