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.

I stayed at The Clarke for a work trip and was pleasantly surprised. An overall great experience and downtown Waukesha is fantastic. David took excellent care of us and treated each person as if they were his only customer! What a great hotel!

From the building to the hospitality of David, the Clarke hotel is a gem. I travel for work,but this is also a great getaway hotel. I only wish the shops and stay open a bit later. The food is very accommodating, even if you are a vegan,passing through the cheese state.

We stayed in almost all the rooms as well as holding our wedding rehearsal dinner here. The rooms are unique - each one is a different size and shape - and each one I saw was huge! The bathrooms are well appointed with great showers and tubs and everything was really clean. I'd definitely stay here again! Our event was...

The Clarke has "charm" but it needs to pay more attention to the "housekeeping" details that keep patrons faithful to it. There was nothing "major", but enough to be annoying. First, we had requested a room with two beds and got a room with a king bed. Two girlfriends on a getaway weekend - really wants TWO beds. Other standouts...

What a beautiful historic classically shaped building. Built late 1800s. It seems the beautiful Waukesha downtown has maintained many of the original historic buildings near the Fox River. Check-in on the first floor, all rooms on the second floor which has a couple of levels. The hotel is maintained and been updated very nicely. Our room had to walk down...
