It’s the Little Extras that Make a Big Difference

Being seasoned travelers ourselves, we know how the little extras can make or break your experience when staying away from home. That’s why we’ve gone the extra mile to make sure Bay View amenities include the very best in bedding and also come with an array of useful gadgets, widgets and creature comforts you wouldn’t normally find in a corporate hotel.

Guest Access is a Big Thing at Kinn

Keyless Building & Room Access

Keyless Building & Room Access

One of the things that makes our Bay View amenities unique is our self-guided check-in process, which eliminates the need for onsite staff or traditional room keys. Once your booking is confirmed, you get a secure access code via text message that gives you access to the building and your room, so can come and go as you please.

Local Gym Access

Local Gym Access

Every Kinn booking comes with complimentary access to a local Bay View gym that is staffed, fully equipped and only a block away from the guesthouse. Yoga room, cardio equipment, free weights…you name it, they have it. Just show your Kinn booking confirmation for access.

Access to a Chef’s Kitchen

Access to a Chef’s Kitchen

Our communal kitchen is a point of pride and, for those who love cooking their own meals, we've hooked you up with a pro-series range, farm-style sink, full-size fridge, shelves stacked with all the flatware you need to feed a family, the convenience of a dishwasher, and more.


You can get a room anywhere, but our goal is to create spaces and experiences that leave a lasting impression. And the little luxuries we include with every room are a testament to that mission.

Other Comforts and Conveniences of Home


Smell and Feel Divine

There is no detail too small for us at Kinn Bay View. We sampled dozens, if not hundreds, of personal care products before deciding to have our spa-inspired products custom made by our neighbors at Ursa. Like our guesthouse, they provide guests the perfect balance between luxury and that down-home feeling.


Self-Serve Laundry

You never know when you might need to wash one of the few outfits you brought with on your trip. Messy eater? No problem. Worked out harder than normal? We got you covered. Our self-serve laundry is accessible 24/7 and has four high efficiency washers, dryers and detergent for your convenience.


Charge Your Car While You Recharge

Whether you’re trying to save Mother Earth, trying to save on fuel costs, or both, we strive to be as forward-thinking as our electric vehicle owners by providing a convenient place for them to plugin during their stay.


We have dog-friendly rooms in our Downtown Milwaukee Guesthouse. With hardwood and tile flooring throughout, messes cause us a little less stress. We also provide dog bowls for your convenience. The fee is $65 per pet with a weight limit of 65 pounds per pet. All dogs must be crated if left alone in the room. Limit of 2 pets per room. Please let us know during booking whether your best friend will be “tagging” along.

Charles & Connie,
Thank you very much for making our stay so enjoyable! The Kinn is an incredible hotel, easily the best accommodations we have ever stayed in – the rooms and common areas were perfect and staying here was a great way to celebrate our daughter’s 16th b-day with these other friends. We already looking forward to our next visit!


Kinn, you are a shining star. A lovely place to rest and relax after stressful days. We will be back! (but in Room 8 as aging pup can’t do the stairs :)

Dear Charles, Connie & Kinn Team,
Bryon & I had a great stay! This experience is way better than any large hotel chain and we plan to be back when we next visit Milwaukee. Thanks for the croissants to send us on our way!
Take care.


Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful space with us! It was the perfect setting for my bridal party to relax in and get ready for the big day. Charles – you went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Cheers.
