Business Trip

This was my first stay at this hotel. I was pleased with the ambiance, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. During hectic, stressful business trips, the last thing you want to worry about is issues at your hotel. This hotel made my business trip very smooth and hassle-free.

business trip

I have been using this location for the past few months with work travel and it is a perfect location for me. I have no issues at the location and the staff is always friendly and helpful when needed. rooms are always clean and kept up along with other areas of the hotel. I would say that the rooms are dark with lighting the eyes have but a minor issue for me.

Best kept Secret

Everyone that worked there was friendly, knowlegable and willing to offer suggestions when I was feeling indecisive about what to do or where to eat. The hotel is within walking distance of a ton of historic landmarks of MKE, the immediate geographic zone has modern comforts like Starbucks, and the parking at this hotel is only $10/day- did I mention their shuttle will take you almost anywhere in the city if you are flexible with your schedule. The room was charming and reminded me of the old black and white movies. The guests were fascinating. The breakfast room has one table for 4 people and there's stools at a bar... But plenty of standing room and the community that emerges is breath-taking. It was the oasis I needed and the best place to rise from the ashes... I encourage anyone who frequents, visits once, or even lives in Milwaukee to stay here at least 2 nights any time of the year and just be open to the sights, the sounds, the others present and enjoy the journey that starts at the Ambassador INN at Marquette.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Pack some things you might be willing to give to the homeless - whether it's food, clothes or loose change... If you won't hand it to them yourselves, someone at the inn will make sure it gets to one of the known locals that only want to be loved, warm, and at peace with the world around them.

Fun evening

Overall the room was good and you couldn't beat the cost. Staff was very friendly. There wasn't any parking in the lot next door but we were able to stay in the parking lot at the hotel across the street. However that was an extra $10.00 We went to the rave for a concert which was less than a block away so the location was perfect.

The Rave Goer

I was staying at this hotel to visit the rave, which was literally next door. The location couldn't have been better. The room was spacious and clean and allowed us all to get ready in separate parts of the room, and in private. The staff was very friendly, and parking was amazingly cheap! My only issues were this (and they're minor)... There were two TVs, one in the living room and one in the bedroom. Yet. There was only 1 remote. That was strange. And my biggest issue was the breakfast. It was free, so I didn't expect much. But. Another person staying there while eating had curdled milk. Only one part of the toaster worked. And the biggest problem was there was only one table with 4 chairs. There was not enough room for everyone in the hotel to eat breakfast and we had to eat while standing. But, overall the hotel was very good and I would stay there again in a heartbeat if I was in Milwaukee again!

Great Price

One bartender and server on staff on a Monday night just before a concert made service a bit lengthy. But the free shuttle service to downtown was great and on time. It wasn't too bad of a hotel for the price and amenities.

Good and cheap hotel

The hotel is very close to Marquette University. It's ideal for students and for travelers that are trying to save money but stay in a comfortable place. There are not too many restaurants around that area but the hotel offers a free shuttle service to downtown or near locations.

Comfy beds, clean rooms, excellent staff. Just your average hotel. We were just there for a quick overnight trip so it worked well for us.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

No good nightlife within a short walk from this place! Bring plenty of drinks for your hotel room. :)
