clean with no amenities. priced well. easy access to air, freeway, downtown/malls. it was not a fancy place, but it was full. the lack of extras was not a factor. We were travelling and going to an event. If you just want to sleep and leave, this is a good value.

Not a safe place to be...lots of police contact here over the years. Make sure you don't get a room on the back side of the building. There is a lot of in and out traffic. The location is good for dining and access to interstate.

After reading the reviews and seeing the pictures, I decided to book a reservation as we were looking for a decent, affordable hotels.

Stayed there for the wrestling tourney. Clean room. I like the entrance of rooms from the ground floor and outside. I needed to keep my kayak in the room the day that I left and they let me keep it in the room until 5 PM ...... with no additional charges.

Checked into the Red Roof Inn and the first room, although labeled "non-smoking" obviously wasn't. Front desk was accommodating and put us in another room which was better. Positives about this motel - free (and pretty fast) wifi connection, close to the Interstate we were traveling on, flat screen TV, gave a 10% off coupon to the nearby Texas Roadhouse... More

Check in was easy. The price a little high for such a basic room, but there was an expo in town, perhaps it's not always as high. It definitely shouldn't be, the room was awful!!! Wisconsin state law says 'No Smoking ' in any hotel since 2010, but the smell of stale smoke hit us when we walked in. Gave... More

Over all the 2nd room was OK. When we checked in there was a police officer investigating a guest that had stayed a couple days prior to our arrival and that should have been the light bulb moment to turn around. We got our first room and when we walked in there was an ungodly smell like a porta potty... More

Stayed here en route to Minneapolis. Décor a little tired, but otherwise good clean accommodation for an overnight stay on a budget. Complimentary coffee available in reception and staff very friendly. Within walking distance of Perkins restaurant and a short drive from other chain restaurants. Would stay here again!

I decided to try this Red Roof Inn in Madison and it was fantastic. It can be hard to find quality places to stay that accept pets. My boxer was welcomed with open arms. Friendly staff, beautiful room. New carpeting, everything was immaculate. Very quiet. :)
