I have been coming to the Madison area for just over 2.5 years as a consultant and I usually stay at the Clarion Choice on Rim Rock Road and that hotel is real good. However every once in a while I cannot get a room there because my trip is booked a little late so I go with budget and... More

Enjoyed our recent stay with our three grandsons while attending the Midwest Horse Fair. They really enjoyed the arcade & pool area. Breakfast was also a treat they looked forward to every morning & enjoyed talking with the host. This was our second stay in recent years...will be back!

The room was nice and the staff was friendly. The only thing I didn't like was that out room was right in the middle of a family that had multiple rooms that night and they kept going between rooms and slamming doors all night. Wish they would have placed us in a different section.

After the first night, we arrived back to the room to find that towels had been dropped off but the beds were still unmade, the garbage had not been taken out, toiletries had not been replaced. Yet there were some additional towels. Arriving back on the third day (for... More

No WiFi signal in the room. When I called the front desk they suggested I come t the lobby to use the WIFI. WiFi signal should be available in all rooms. The drain plug in the bath tub did not work so when we gave the kids baths the water kept draining out.

Our internet signal is based off of a satellite connection so anytime a hard snowfall or a storm our signal may get weakened. I will pass along this information to our chief of engineering.... More
