The Knickerbocker on the Lake

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Centrally located within walking distance of many things. The friendliness of the staff, reasonably priced delicious meals at the hotel restaurant, 24/7 access to a great workout facility and on site parking. We had a wonderful time and will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Milwaukee.

We had some really noisy neighbors last night at 3am but everything else was great!

Room is spacious and has great amenities. The fireplace is great.

Hotel is in great location. Rooms are simple and clean. The only negative about the whole experience is that the walls are thin and you can hear your neighbors talking.

Quirky, warm, sweet staff. Great fit for us! The options are endless. If we have more time next time, we will eat there as well. Good option and a nice addition

Room is a little outdated, but good enough for a few nights. Room service never came to make up room. I'm not sure if that is common in this hotel or not. Maybe you have to specifically request it? Specific instructions were not stated anywhere.

We had the 2 bedroom suite, room 325. It was amazing. It was a very large 2 bedroom apartment. Complete with a library and an office. 2 bathrooms and a full kitchen stocked with all the extras a kitchen needs. The living room had a fire place, directv and a huge sectional that could easily sleep 2 people. It also had laundry machines in the apartment! The master bedroom had a walk in closet the size of a bedroom and a nice bathroom attached. It was just amazing. We will be staying here, and requesting this particular room, every time we come to Milwaukee! The pictures online did not do the room justice at all.

Rooms have nice amenities, is roomy, charming, decorated sinks in bathroom. Art Deco design.

It was not an ornately decorated hotel. The room felt like it could have been a old studio apartment at one time which was neat. The elevators and halls felt like they were from the 50s. Interesting looking. You get a physical key so make sure you don't forget to lock the door!

The room was in terrible shape, the walls need new paint, rust came out of the bathroom faucet, the carpet is old and warn, the drapes were stained, the future was shabby. There was often none at the front desk. I would never stay there again,

The location is great and the staff were friendly. They have a nice bar with a good happy hour. Would definitely stay there again!!

The price was way too expensive. The pull out couch was really uncomfortable. It is not really on the lake. And $18 a night to park? That's ridiculous unless there is an antendee. On the plus side, check in girl was nice. Good location, clean and the breakfast at the restaurant downstairs was excellent and quick.

We had one of the less fancy rooms, but the bed was a dream, the kitchenette nice, the place was quiet. We got full value! Seemed like it was less than a mile to most of the places we wanted to visit, and navigation around downtown Milwaukee is good.

Beautiful historic hotel with dated guest room. My room, 308 (1 bedroom suite) had stains on the carpet and the toilet seat had a large crack on it.

Beautiful old hotel with real keys! The room was lovely and the staff was very pleasant. The only thing not to love is the lack of parking. You have to pay an additional charge.

Great time pleasant nice parking beautiful room enjoyed it
