    Superb

    Cookies! They put out fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, plus there was always free coffee and tea available. Front Desk workers were great, and gave good advice on where to eat (Maders). Liked the pillowtop bed too. And everything was very clean.

    Problem with panhandlers every time we'd step outside the hotel. They were pretty aggressive and it was intimidating. Otherwise the hotel was a good one and Milwaukee is a pretty city.

    Superb

    Very accommodating! Although we booked a king room through Booked.net that was not specified to the hotel by this 3rd party booking site. We were originally given a double. When I showed my confirmation from Booked.net they switched us to a room with 2 queens, since no kings available. Apparently since Booked.net only specifies smoking or non smoking not the room size you may not get the room you expect when using this "booking service" (Very lucrative business model for Booked.net to charge me for the king but not follow through with that with the hotel ) Luckily the hotel staff were understanding and gave us a more suitable room! Staff were helpful, courteous, and friendly! Rooms were clean and comfortable! Great location.

    No ice maker on our floor

    Fabulous

    The staff was excellent. They listened well, made us feel valued, and addressed our concerns promptly and efficiently. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and the seating area offered several choices. The location was excellent for attending a show at the Riverside Theater.

    This is clearly a refurbished property. The toilet ran and needed its seat replaced (both brought up to the staff, so I hope it will be addressed). The air blower would not turn off in our room (so even though we set it to off, the temp was 59.) Maintenance came and fixed it by hand, but needed to come in our room at night and remove a ceiling grate to do so. This released dust into the air which was unpleasant. There was a nice desk chair, but no other chair in the room. We would have really liked to have an easy chair.

    This is a disappointing example of a Hampton Inn. I usually stay in the Hampton when I'm in the states as they generally all have a pretty high standard. However, I wasn't impressed with this one. One thing that really annoyed me was that there were no power outlets in my room. I had to unplug the fridge and coffee machine to charge my laptop. Poor effort overall!

    Staff was great. Room was clean.

    Beds were very uncomfortable. We picked the Hampton Inn because the beds are always great, but not at this location. Heat was very loud when running. Turned heat off so we didn't have to listen to it. Also, food was cold for the complimentary breakfast.

    Good location

    Pool was too cold to swim in and the lobby area was very cold. Our room was extremely hot and they were not able to fix it or allow us any temperature regulation. However, the hotel was very accommodating and covered the cost of our stay.

    The location.

    The Hotel rooms are very worn out. They really need som updating. The heater did not work. Their was a constant buzzing noise coming from a red box on the wall. The bed was very hard. We won't be back!?

    The breakfast was perfect. Worked well when traveling w/kids that have a hungry appetite. They were accomodating when we had an issue w/our room. Moved us right away.

    We had a situation where a condom wrapper was laying on the floor buy the bed. I immediately called the front desk. Manager came up and said he could move us to a different room, but I asked for the stay to be free and he said yes at first but then I had to speak to the manager at checkout in the morning - well the manager was not in until 7PM. So they called her, got a $50 discount on room and they were going to send me a free night to any other hotel. To date nothing in the mail. Called 9/14 and left the manager a message, again no reply. So now I going to call again today and if no response I am going to the Better Business Bureau. This is very unacceptable.
