We have been staying at this hotel when we travel for over 20 years. The staff have always been very helpful and friendly. This time they went above and beyond because we had to extend our stay one more night because our flight from Madison to Chicago was cancelled.

Howard Johnson on E.Washington is always our first choice of anywhere to stay in Madison. Convenient location, clean, nice televisions, large heated pool and a quiet location off the busy road is second to the wonderful friendly hotel staff. Breakfast is always special, made so by the attentive entertaining employees. Great shuttle service too.

Pool and whirlpool were nice but our room wasn't. Shampoo and body lotion bottles were used (1/2 gone) and there was some crusty something on the nightstand that wasn't a stain, just unclean. Yuck! Also, the room was freezing when we got in so we had to blast the heat to 90° for a couple hours just to get the... More

We stay here a few times a month have to come down for work! Loving all the improvements you have made! And I'll give your food 5 stars. We had barbecued ribs andCuban sandwich last night it was excellent! Very reasonably priced and will be ordering from your restaurant every time we stay there from now on!!
