... our residence in Chelsea and then either walk, take a bus, or take a cab the rest of the way there. That's the part I'm most nervous about so I'll be sure to let you all know how that goes!
Well, my mom just called and she's on her way home from work and then we're off to the airport. Next time you hear from me I'll be in London! ...
So the 7am bus trip from Detroit to Milwaukee was again delayed while we waited for the people crossing the boarder...it was running late anyway but we get the impression people from Detroit do not like people crossing over from Canada. However we do not think Greyhound is a very reliable mode of transport for punctuality.
We finally reached Milwaukee just after 2.30pm with an time zone change. Met at ...
We met up at 9.00am and headed to House of Harley. The local HOG chapter was there with supporting the air cadets ..and doing a toy run. We talked to a few of the members...nice people...then headed into shop. I ended up buying a leather jacket that I had admired the day before ..got a discount ...so deal was done. We watched the hoggies go on their ride. Then we headed off to the 3rd ward...the old Milwaukee ..really ...
... has a parade pass, which he gives to Steve, how lucky is that. I gave the kids a couple of Koalas we brought over with us. That night we watched Aerosmith, it was so cold.
Saturday was the day of the parade, what an experience, so many people on the sidewalks cheering everyone on. Saturday night Steve went to see the UFC, everyone else decided to just stay at the motel and have roast chicken rolls and a few drinks. When I went to pick Steve up at ...
... could see that it was a total passion for these guys. The night ended up a bit latter than planned but it was truly hard to tear yourself away from it. Second day here and we all peeled out to have a look at some custom bike builders this morning, then we split up and 3 of the guys trolled the custom builders etc some more and the rest of us went to the Miller Beer factory and too, a tour in. After a few samples we headed for the hills literally ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Hotel Airport Milwaukee
The room had a terrible smell. It smelled like B.O. I called to get a room change and they wouldn't do it. So I called for some room freshener. They came and sprayed but it didnt' last. I don't think I'll stay here again.
Great Location but they block websites!!!
Imagine a hotel that offers free wirless but blocks websites (e.g. gambling or anything deemed remotely pornographic). Confirmed by management, it was a morality choice made by their conscious decision. They will not allow guests to view anything questionable in their own rooms. (I wish I was kidding.) By the way, websites to horror movies and other violent themes were easily reachable. Very shameful.
The Clarion is an older property, huge and rambling. The building has that discomforting institutional appearance, like a mental hospital.
We had a very early flight out of Milwaukee and decided to stay at the Clarion the night before. The hotel's physical facility is nothing special, but the staff was wonderful! Everyone we encountered, from the front desk people to the shuttle drivers, were friendly, helpful, and courteous. We took advantage of the Park & Fly rate, and it worked like a charm! As it was, we flew back into Milwaukee during a major snowstorm and ended up staying another night at the Clarion because the interstate was impassable. Again, they were really helpful -- even upgraded us to a King suite. Overall, staying at this hotel was a wonderful experience!
Clarion: Milwaukee - Mitchell International
A gem near Mitchell Airport
I recently stayed at this hotel and was quite pleased with my experience. My queen sized room was on the small side, but it was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was polite and the hotel has gated parking for a fee cheaper than the airport ($7.50 per day). The 24-hour shuttle was quick and efficient as well. I didn't use the free Continental breakfast, but it looked decent enough (doughnuts, muffins, coffee and juice).
I haven't stayed at a Clarion before, but I would recommend this property for sure.
After looking at the (negative) reviews for Radisson and Sheraton 4 Points, I decided not to go with Hotwire or Priceline (which has them as 3 stars, see lists on betterbidding). Instead I booked directly with the Clarion for a rate of $69 (Fri), and am glad I trusted the Clarion's (positive) reviewers.
We fly into Milwaukee quite often on our way to visit family. We've stayed at the Clarion a number of times. It is right outside of the airport property, very convenient. Yes, it is a chain hotel, but very clean, spacious rooms. We stayed here just last month on a Fri. - our way in, and again on Sun. night on our way back out. My husband accidentally left his credit card at the desk, imagine my surprise when a few hours after we arrived home our credit card company called me in Florida to tell me the Clarion was holding our card, and how did we want to handle getting it back? When I called the Clarion about our card, the woman who answered was very kind, dropped my card in the mail the same day (the company put a "hold" on our card till we got it back) and we received it 2 days later. Honest people, I'd say! Be prepared to pay to use a microwave ($.50) to pop your machine-bought popcorn! Had never seen that one before. This is by far the most convenient hotel to the airport.
Nice hotel, would recommend
Overall, it's just a chain hotel and not spectacular, but it was very clean and the front desk personnel were very friendly. They were very polite and gave directions to quite a few places for me, as I just had one night to drive around and see the area. The room was nice and as expected, but I travel frequently and have come to not take things for granted. I would recommend this hotel to others.
Good for business travelers
A clean place to lay your head and safely leave your car for up to two weeks while you go somewhere more exciting! The Clarion provides an excellent parking place for your car, fenced in with gate attendants. They have a free shuttle to Gen. Mitchell and quick pickup upon your return. I've stayed there on five separate occasions and have always received excellent service.
