“Big Mistake”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

Needed a hotel for one night while in town for a Brewers game/business trip. Read a lot of reviews saying the hotel was dirty and out dated but saw some that is was being updated (including some from managers) so I figured I would go for it as the location was perfect. Wish I would have opted for a different hotel. The elevators shook and were very scary looking. In the room the carpet and bed were clean and appeared new but the rest of the furniture looked to be about 35 years old and there were disgusting stains on the chairs. There was globs of plaster on the door and the light switches were old and dirty. The wall lights didn't work, the toilet didn't flush right and when I showered I had to turn the water off because there was 6" of standing water in the tub. When I reported this in the morning at check out the clerk asked me if I moved the furniture to see if the lights were plugged in. The pictures on the website are not accurate of the room I stayed in.

Over all this was a very good stay the only complaint was that we didn't have any TV reception when we arrived and when we reported the problem it was fixed but the picture was very fuzzy.

My stay at the Ramada was very pleasant. The staff made me feel very welcome and always greeted me with a good morning or good evening. One staff member went out of his way to call and check on the delay of the shuttle for me. I always stay at the Ramada downtown when I'm in Milwaukee - Very convenient and have never had a problem.

I recently stayed at the Ramada Milwaukee. I'll be honest. I picked the Ramada because I was looking for a cost-effective place to stay for a non-reimbursable trip. The Ramada was great! The room was clean and very comfortable. It had all of the amenities I needed to set up shop and prepare for my presentation at Marquette University Law School. I could see the law school from my window! I felt like I had the place to myself. The staff was very polite and helpful. I couldn't have asked for more for my brief stay in Milwaukee!
