The Clarke Hotel, Waukesha
The Clarke Hotel in Waukesha, Wisconsin
Waukesha, Wisconsin in just west of the Milwaukee metro, and that distance was an obstacle to my choosing it. Yes, the Clarke is 20 miles from downtown Milwaukee, but it is right in the middle of an interesting, renovated downtown Waukesha. Lots of places to eat, specialized shops and all in a very walkable area. The Clarke is not a cookie-cutter hotel. My room was large and comfortable with a view of the shops below. Free parking was available off site, about two blocks away. For the bicycle lover, there were tree-shaded bike paths along the local waterway. The free breakfast had cold items available with egg and bacon dishes which could be heated in the microwave. I recommend the Clarke.

not the greatest
My room was very nice and the hotel is a grand old hotel, however they did have a sewer gas problem while I was there and the staff was not very friendly at all. Having said that if they were to fix those couple of things and update a little I would stay there again.

A little more clarity on where to park would be great. Great bathroom with a nice jet tub.

Wouldn’t stay here again
We arrived at the hotel and checked in. We reserved a city view room and got a roof top view. We were on the third floor which does not have an elevator that goes that high. We had toe nails on the floor of our room a dirty shower. Bed are old and uncomfortable. Breakfast was a joke. Your better off going down the street for a $5 hot breakfast. The location is very cool and area is very popular with shops a dinners. The people were nice and helpful. The room doors are broke and it makes it hard to get in your room

Don’t waste your money here
The service from the bartender was great, no complaints there. But when it came to our room, the carpet and sofas had major stains, the mini fridge wasn’t working, the cups on the room were all dirty, and the room as a whole smelled musty. We thought it would be nice and classy considering the price but it was anything but that. It’s in a great location but everything else about it says “Stat away”
