Mother/Daughter trip
There was garbage from the last people under kitchen sink and dishes in the cupboard were dirty and had to be washed before use. Bathroom mirror was dirty and the bathroom door didn’t shut. Otherwise room was ok, bed was comfortable and air conditioner worked great. Great location.

Good 6.0
Needs some work
We stayed for 4 nights and got maid service once. Some would call the hotel charming, but it’s really just old and worn and desperately needs updating, especially the bathroom. However, the location is fabulous. We were there for Summerfest and could walk to the festival grounds. Not sure if I would stay here again.

Beautiful. Clean. Vintage.
This was our first time visiting Milwaukee and not only did we fall in love with the city, but we fell in lock with The Knickerbocker. We are already planning our next stay! Beautiful. Clean. Vintage!

Great location and on the waterfront.
Great location for Summerfest. Neighborhood setting, nice bar/ restaurant. Our room was great, a small efficiency with a nice bed. We would love to stay there again.
