right at Marquette

We spent four nights here visiting our son at Marquette. Hotel was adequate... nice shower, big towels, plenty of electric plugs, nice chairs. The beds were comfortable. There was a nice diner (awesome meatloaf) just across the street, Michael's open til 930. Also a quick stop one block up, and a Straybucks five blocks east. Downsides, ugly view of a brick wall from window, lots of teens on the street late at night (trying to look so so bad, but probably pretty harmless)

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.

Decent Hotel

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. :)

Poor

Loud neighbors, desk clerk was rude in morning when I mentioned the loud neighbors. The breakfast area was messy with food all over and empty containers. I asked for coffee because it was empty and the desk lady told me it was over in 20 minutes why would they make more. The door had ketchup or blood on it. The only positive was it was within walking distance to the venue I was attending. There is a parking lot but you have to pay $10. When booking online using Paypal you have to pay an additional $60 to secure the transaction which isn't disclosed before hand but you are supposed to be reimbursed. Definitely if you are into drinking and partying this is the place for you to stay as the desk help says nothing....

Not what I expected

The hotel was average. Not a great neighborhood. No evening strolls here. I was alos disappointed at the $10.00 a night parking charge in an unsecured lot in a not so great area. The positives were the shuttle to the Brewers game and Lakesha at the front desk.

Ambassador Inn stay

The hotel was average nothing real bad but nothing real good. We stayed there while attending Summerfest and it's located like a 10 min drive away from there. The hotel also offered a shuttle bus ride to drop us off which was real helpful.

Broken Yolk for breakfast. A few blocks down the road and they fill you up. It can get busy though when college is in session.
