“Great Airport Hotel”
Reviewed January 4, 2009

My husband and I stayed at the Clarion right after Christmas when we were stuck at the Milwaukee airport due to weather. I stayed one night, my husband stayed two. The entire hotel was flooded with people trying to get a room that night (most flights had been cancelled), and the front desk was fully staffed, ready to meet travelers when they arrived off the shuttle. The line moved quickly, and the woman who checked us in was very calm and professional. The shuttle driver also was in a good mood, despite the fact that the van was crammed full of tired, crabby travelers.
The room itself far exceeded our expectations: down pillows and duvet; updated fixtures and furniture; large, flat-screen TV with all the cable you can imagine (unlike some ritzier hotels where the cable is limited to news and sports). The bathroom had a nice granite-looking counter with Neutrogena products and a large showerhead. We were on the top floor, so there was no noise from above, but we didn't experience any noise between the walls.
The hotel has free wifi, which worked intermittently in our room (on the top floor, last room on the end). We did not, however, try it out in the lobby, where I expect it works better.
The bar in the basement was quite lively; the bartenders were nice and efficient. Our only complaint was the karaoke blasting at a million decibels.
If we're ever stuck in Milwaukee again, we'll definitely stay at the Clarion.

We stayed at the Clarion on thanks giving day, the room is large, King bed, very comfortable with updated furniture and flat screen TV. The kids loved the pool. And best of all was the thanks giving brunch. We highly recommend this hotel.

We spent 5 nights at this motel while attending a wedding in Milwaukee. We enjoyed the hospitality of the staff, especially Pat, who checked us in and made sure we got the type of room we needed. The suite was fine, the hide-a-bed was marginal. We asked for and received a rollaway in its place. The proximity to the airport was great and the shuttle service convenient. There were plenty of decent restaurants in the area. The place was surprisingly quite, considering it is next to the airport. The only noise was from the usual inconsiderate neighbors across the hall.

  • Liked — The friendly staff and proximity to the airport
  • Disliked — Poor quality of the sofa bed

My husband and I stayed at the Clarion overnight. The staff was fine. The room was nice: good tv, microwave, clean and warm shower. The shuttle to the airport works wonderfully 24h a day and they have free doughnuts, juice and coffee for breakfast, even for us who left at 4:30 a.m. The hotel is very close to the airport and has many places to eat on a walking distance. Great choice.

I stay in the Choice Hotel group often, but rarely in a Clarion. This hotel was the best value I could find rate wise. I am usually a Comfort Suites, Hampton Inn kind of person.
This hotel is little older, but it was better than my expectations - very clean. Room was a little small, but it did have a fridge and microwave. Wireless internet worked fine (this is very important to me).
Bedding was good, not great. Towels were very good, thick and not scratchy like some other hotels.
It had a nice indoor pool, larger than most. Workout room was poor, but you do have access to a gym that is next door.
Great proximity to the airport - in fact you are looking at it. Not the best neighborhood to take an evening walk.
Overall, would recommend to any business traveler and to families for a quick overnight.
Has a restaurant and bar downstairs. A bit overpriced, but food was good.

  • Liked — Nice clean room.
  • Disliked — Restaurant on site, but lack of other choices nearby.

Booking as late as we did, this was as close as we could get to Summerfest. The location was not too bad. It 's close to a park and ride lot and there were quite a few restaurants in the area (nothing fancy, just the basics). The staff was very helpful and friendly. The larger gym on the website was closed, which was a disappointment. There's a workout room, but it 's the usual blah, cramped space. They don't have a hot tub, but they do have a nice pool with an awesome skylight . The room was nice with the amenities you expect for the price. A wedding reception going on one night made parking scarce, but we did finally find a spot a ways away. My laptop was in the shop so I would've liked to use the business center. That was a better set up than some I've seen with two pc's in a more private space, but it was always busy. Not a lot of selection for breakfast, but it was of good quality.

First of all, June 4th, when ours and several flights were cancelled because of dense fog, we were ready to head home.
By chance we drove into the Clarion Hotel to see how much rooms were without a reservation. Immediately the desk people(of which there were four at that time) gave me a room and price that saved our vacation.
A king bedroom with a bedroom with two double beds and a sleeper sofa we did not need. Our family was six, with four kids under the age of twelve had plenty of room. Three t.v.'s in this suite. A fridge and microwave we didn't use. Then leaving our car in a secure lot was unplanned also. But it saved us the 11.00 dollar charge the airport would have charged. They drive you to a lot that is a very short walk. The pool was deep and large and the kids were happy for the night.
They gave us two free drinks for each adult and two each non-alcohol for the kids. That was worth something. Then two free $6.50 off coupons for adults for breakfast. The kids menus is very good and priced right for breakfast. The breakfasts we received were so large no finished them. Quiet, friendly, clean, safe, affordable and very stressfree is how I have to describe this hotel. No noise from the airport.
Upon return and after picking up our luggage and the shuttle was there in about two minutes.
I figure without giving exact prices for every detailed thing, this room and parking w/o tax and figuring in free and discount coupons made my stay about $80.00. for a night. Maybe we were lucky or maybe they read these comments but without a doubt I would stay here again.

  • Liked — Got more than I bargained for.
  • Disliked — i cannot think of anything.
