What a beautiful historic classically shaped building. Built late 1800s. It seems the beautiful Waukesha downtown has maintained many of the original historic buildings near the Fox River. Check-in on the first floor, all rooms on the second floor which has a couple of levels. The hotel is maintained and been updated very nicely. Our room had to walk down... More

I stayed at the Clarke hotel for a work meeting hosted in Waukesha. I enjoyed staying at a smaller hotel that wasn't affiliated with a large multi-national chain. The front door staff was friendly and helped guide me through the twisted hallways to my room on the third floor. The room itself wasn't extremely memorable, the bathroom was probably the... More

This was a lovely place to stay. We had what we found out was the 'Honeymoon Suite' that was so pretty! The room was huge by modern standards with about 8 windows onto the streets below - very large bathroom (had to ask for extra towels; was set up for only 1 person?); however, that request was promptly handled. Very... More

The only negative thing I have to say is the noise from the street over night. Bikes and peoples. My room was just ahead. But with the A.C. on it is not a big deal. The staff was very helpful and the restaurant very good. I would go in again.

We had a corner room and loved the view of downtown Waukesha. The large bathroom and large walk-in shower were excellent and bed was very comfortable. Staff was pleasant and helpful, although we were disappointed that the DVD player we had requested in advance became a problem. The complimentary breakfast was very good. But parking is a bit of an... More

The Clarke Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Waukesha, WI. The hotel has a very comfortable feel and staff is very personable. The entry to the hotel is located at street level and immediately next to the Irish Pub portion of the property. All of the rooms were oversized in floor space. Each room has a Keurig coffee...

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!!
