If a trip to Ireland is not in the cards but you still want a taste of the Emerald Isle, then book a stay at the County Clare in Milwaukee.
The County Clare is an older 3 story building that sits just off the Lake and just North of downtown, both are within walking distance (less than a mile). Rooms are well maintained and large. Included with your room is a full breakfast and parking.
The restaurant is small, but the breakfast we had each morning was suburb. We also visited the restaurant for the Friday Fish dinner, which was excellent.
Just as other reviewers have mentioned, the bathroom is an open concept, so not a lot of privacy for dressing. This could be an issue for a family with teenagers sharing the same room. Also, the TV was out of the 90's, small, analog and seemed out of place for a hotel at this price point. Finally, although the parking is free, there are not enough spaces for all guests, so the parking lot is really glorified valet parking. This may be an issue if you are using your car a lot during your stay.
Overall, we found a nice hotel close to downtown and the lake for a good overall value. We would stay here again.
