We come to Waukesha a few times each year to visit our son and always stay at the Clarke. The rooms are exceptional, the service excellent and the resturant outstanding. Our stay includes brunch and the corned beef hash and eggs Benedict are the best!

Like the "Disappointed" and "Very Disappointing" reviewers, we really wanted to like this hotel.
