“Solid Price, Great Location, No Complaints”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

My wife and I stayed here for two nights to celebrate our anniversary, and though we were among the younger clientele (being in our twenties), we found the experience delightful. Living in Chicago, we do a lot of walking, so to us at least, downtown Milwaukee, the Third Ward, Brady Street, the art museum -- all these eclectic destinations were well within our walking ability. And when we wanted to visit the Fox-Bay Theater Grill one night, our No. 10 bus picked up right in front of restaurant.

Breakfast was good, brunch was fantastic. For the price we paid (on a Thursday, Friday night) for the room we got (I believe a standard room), we were both quite pleased.

I stayed in a "standard" room for three nights while in Milwaukee on business. While the County Clare isn't as close to downtown as other places I've stayed, it is my favorite spot so far. Still a relatively short walk to the office and close to the waterfront. The rooms are quite lovely--very clean, larger than I expected, with a very warm feel and a great big tub. The pub has delicious food and a very friendly staff. I ate three meals at the bar, creative salads and soups, all relatively healthy and incredibly tasty. With Guinness, of course. The Irish Pub is the real deal. All staff were very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Breakfast, included, was also tasty with made to order omelet and self serve lighter fare. The Inn is reasonably priced and I intend to stay here again on my next trip to town.

I would recommend the County Clare for business travelers, couples, friends, and solo folks, especially if you'd enjoy the pub. Free wifi, free parking, but no fitness room or pool if you're into that. Very close to the running/walking paths along the lake, which is how I got my exercise.

Room Tip: I was on the third floor and it was very quiet. I did wonder if it might get a little loud if your...

I can not rave about this place enough. It was an amazing stay and would be a reason to come back to Milwaukee.

We stayed for 3 nights in the beginning of August over a weekend, in the standard room. It featured a desk and sitting area, a comfortable pillow top queen bed, handcrafted comforters, a luxurious double whirlpool bath, separate shower and wireless high-speed internet.

Complimentary breakfast ( over the weekend it was amazing food, your choices are plenty and the quality is above industry standard, highly recommend the salmon benny and the Irish breakfast) also you may want to stay for dinner as well, their shepherds pie was phenomenal and bangers and mash to die for.

Free parking is offered to all overnight guests, do be aware that it is tight parking in the back and spots will fill up quickly.

We stayed in the "snug" room (cheapest one) but there was nothing snug about it. By European standards at least, the room was big. Room was clean, bed comfortable.

Great location. Walked to everything. Breakfast cooked just for us was lovely.

In our room, there was a whirpool bath (in the room but behind a dividing screen) which was relaxing. If you don't feel comfortable with that though, there's a shower in a separate bathroom.

Parking was free and convenient. Staff were lovely.

A great stay!

Very large room with a hot tub. Room was very clean. The omelet cooked by a chef for breakfast was great. The rest of the breakfast was self serve. Nice location with a pub/restaurant downstairs. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

This is a great Inn with a awesome location. I have stayed twice on business trips and enjoyed my stay both times. The rooms are reasonably priced and they offer a Government rate. The food is good, but if it is not what you want there are several great restaurants with in walking distance. The rooms are clean, spacious and quiet. Most if not all have a rooms garden/jacuzzi tub. I plan to stay again next time I visit Milwaukee.

The Inn is very warm and welcoming. We stayed in suite 309 the room was very roomy. The bathroom was large with a hot tub we did not use. The hallway is narrow so you can hear the doors closing. At night you hear the city buses driving past the inn. But that is what you get for staying in the city. The pub was very nice, the food was good and fresh. We had the Ruben rolls to start. The soups and main dishes were all delish. When you stay at the Inn you get a complementally breakfast, which is a made to order omelet, with breads, juice, coffee or tea. Breakfast is very good, could use some fresh fruit. Inn was clean but not spotless, few spider webs on lights and corners. Nothing major, we would stay at the Inn again.
