“Good value but some problems”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Hotel is very convenient to the Frontier Airlines Center and the price was right.

One problem area: The room door did not have an automatic closer which I consider a security problem.

One major annoyance: There was only one paper cup for the coffee maker when I arrived and I used it the first morning. The maid threw it away but did not replace it. I had to use a glass with the hot coffee. On the third morning the coffee maker had not been emptied (let alone cleaned) and again there was no cup.

While the location of the Ramada was agreeable to the events we had planned, its clientele left a lot to be desired. This location seems to be a haven for under-age customers. During our two-night stay (which was Friday evening to Sunday morning), security had to remove guests and guests-of-guests. Loud "neighbors" and random knocks on the door at late/early hours was the norm. The rooms were dated and the outlets worn out. Several times, chargers and power supplies had to be checked to make sure they were still seated in the plugs. They would fall out due to the old wall sockets had lost their tension. The restaurant located on premise should be skipped altogether. Food was bland and uneven in temperature. In particular, avoid the "buffet" breakfast. There is a "chef" present to mete out the fare. It was like rationing cheese during the Depression. The eggs were over-dry (neither salt, pepper or even ketchup could save these), bacon was cooked uneven, potatoes were tasteless and the coffee was more akin to colored water. This was my first and last time staying at the Ramada Milwaukee City Centre.

I recently stayed 2 nights at the Ramada Milwaukee hotel/center, I was very impressed with the location and how close it was to a Mall ,places to eat and the overall feel of the downtown area. We had no problems with the staff they were very nice and I will stay there again because it was quiet.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front was great and qyiet.

I recently stayed and the Ramada Milwaukee City Center for a weekend with my high school robotics team. We have always found the rooms to clean, well kept care of and the overall presentation of the hotel is excellent. The staff there is always kind, and ready to meet my needs. I seem to always make a mistake on my housing of the team somehow, but the staff always helps me figure it out.
The price that is offerend for our Robotics competition is excellent, which is why we stay there.
Thank you again for a great stay.

This hotel is clean, efficient and the staff is friendly, 3 important criteria for any stay, plus for the price, you get what you pay for. They offer packages which make it a better value than other hotels. It appears that they have recentlyrenovated the rooms, because they were bright and clean and didn't smell musty.

The Ramada is the only hotel that I stay at when I visit Milwaukee. The hotel is very close to the highway and free parking is a plus. The staff are friendly, very helpful, and knowledgeable about the area. They have always suggested things to do and directions to get there. I also like the rooms. They are clean and cozy. I have only eaten breakfast in the restaurant and it was good. The service was good. I will stay there again.
