Really cute, really quaint. The updates are nice, especially the shower and the sitting area off the elevator on the second floor. Only two issues: 1. Everything in terms of operations is done by hand - and accordingly, the challenges (such as lost reservations) can be an issue. 2. No outlets directly beside the bed if so if you're charging...

We stayed at The Clarke for the first time. Great hotel. The staff was friendly. The rooms were large and very clean. The bar area was super fun and the bartender makes a homemade old fashioned. I would definitely recommend this hotel

We booked this hotel because of the location. It does not match the description or the pictures. It is a very worn hotel. We got a suite because we like to have a living area. It was room 201 and let me tell you it was NOT worth the extra money. The "living area" was basically a tiny desk, a...

Very nice upscale hotel in the heart of downtown Waukesha. The rooms are spacious. The staff is friendly and really works hard to make sure that you are taken care of. The bathroom are updated and high end. We will be back.

This is the perfect location if you want to enjoy historic downtown Waukesha. It's located in the heart of the little downtown which has many restaurants, bars (some with live music too !), and shops. Everything you could need is located right outside your door, including a bike shop where you can rent bicycles and connect right on to a...

The hotel check in is in the bar. So when the bar closes, the hotel locks the doors. We made it work, but it was a little like being in high school with a curfew. The staff was friendly and this is a great place to stay.
