Run away fast and don't look back

Would not recommend Sun, Aug 23, 2015
We were treated awful on arrival. There was a bug in the room and we told we had to pay for parking after we arrived. It was a terrible experience. Would never go back!

PGA Championship

Would recommend Sun, Aug 16, 2015
My boyfriend and I stayed here because of the location. We were getting up at 4:45 am the next morning to head to the PGA Championship and the hotel was quiet even when we went to sleep early and the staff was very helpful when we checked out at 5:00 am.

The hotel is in an excellent location and it is very nice to have shuttle service within a 3 mile radius. The food in the restaurant was really good but the drinks in the bar were even better! (Bloody Mary's)

Business Trip

Would recommend Tue, Mar 10, 2015
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.

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

Would recommend Tue, Jan 20, 2015
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 saver

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

Would recommend Mon, Dec 29, 2014
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.

Entertainment hint

If you're going to the eagles ballroom/rave than this is a good place to stay over. Short walk and good price!
