I love this place whenever I am in Waukesha. It's a nice, clean, fancy hotel with affordable prices. They have breakfast and the rooms are great. The showers are amazing! I will be coming back whenever Im in town.

As an earlier reviewer noted, this is an excellent event-occasion hotel located in just the right downtown spot. My mom, sisters, and I met here for our annual get together, which this year happened to be in our hometown of Waukesha. We all hadn't been back to the area in quite some time, so while we were dining at the...

My wife and I were in Waukesha for my high school reunion this past weekend and had booked our room in mid-June. I booked first before reading any Tripadvisor reviews because I was very curious about the property regardless of what anyone may have had to say be it good or bad. In truth, some of the earlier negative comments...

(Today is July 20 2015 and I think some of the reviews for The Clarke Hotel are for their bar. Not the hotel. Those reviews should definitely be separated as they are affecting the true rating.) I am sad to give it two stars. So I will first talk about the pluses. Nice sized room. Excellent location in downtown Waukesha...

Stayed here for the weekend while visiting family in Waukesha. I stayed here years ago when it was brand new and was unimpressed. I saw they have new owners, and thought I would give it another shot. I'm glad I did. The hotel has beautiful rooms with plush beds, great TV channels, and luxurious spa showers with separate tubs. You...

Came to town on a business trip and all of the usual suspects were sold out for Summerfest so ventured to Waukesha. The Clarke is truly an INN with an actual Innkeeper. Paul the bartender doubles as GM and is working hard to make this place quite special. I look forward to making The Clarke my future go to Inn...

Physically beautiful and clean, food not bad (not great) - not exactly sure they know what they are doing yet but certainly tried very hard to succeed; servers very nice and very hard-working, very polite but not friendly (if you know what I mean) but gave it their all, nice ambiance - all ruined by the most rude two male...

We were literally driving through Wisconsin stopping wherever we thought looked interesting so we tried Waukesha and ended up spending the night at The Clarke Hotel. We really like to stay downtown in any area and walk to take in the city. The Clarke was prefect. Right in the middle of downtown, front desk was friendly, reasonable rates and a...

Wife and I stayed at the Clarke Hotel for a night since we were in town for a wedding at Carol College. Rooms were very clean. Lots of space and bed was very comfortable. Lots of little amenities in the room and they even had a toothbrush for you if you forgot yours. Shower was super elaborate, but there were...

We did not stay overnight but visited their bar after a wedding. They could do a better job of staffing up for these "crush" hours in between weddings and receptions taking place in downtown. Bar was packed and much waiting for service. A friend noticed a musty smell as we entered the hotel premises.
