By the time I booked our rooms this was the only hotel in the area with availability. Now I know why. Located right next to a huge landfill, dirty unkept grounds, mostly gravel parking lot, front desk clerk oblivious to customer care, room smelled like cigarette smoke, very little water pressure in shower.... OK you get the picture.

The breakfast was the best we have ever had at a motel and we have stayed at lots of big names!! Give this... More

The hotel is a little difficult to get to when you see it. There is an access road off of the highway to get to it. Interestingly, it has a mod vibe with contemporary, Eames-ish furniture. There is a very nice outdoor pool. My room was comfortable if a bit shabby for a chain hotel. There was no tub, just... More

If you like saving serious money and still getting a filling breakfast -- this might be for you. Rooms are relatively small but our group of three asked for and received a Rollaway bed which was pretty comfortable. Also, we both thought the bed was extremely comfortable. We only paid around $40 a night and it was a good value,... More

This motel is substandard and in poor condition. The front desk staff are not that great either. I thought the breakfast was OK, nothing special. There are better hotels and motels closer to Madison. Try somewhere else.

I arrived late to the hotel and was staying there one night before heading over to my reservation across town. The staff was very friendly, but you could see that this hotel had seen better days. Room was very small and you could tell nothing had been updated in a very very long time, with stains on the carpet both... More

OK budget hotel for trips to Madison and Talieson, the Frank Llloyd Wright compound in Spring Green. Clean and quiet rooms, Somewhat isolated from restaurants, but convenient to the major highways. A bit overpriced in my opnion, but the cheapest acceptable place in the area.

Noise and voices all night long. Worst night ever, will never stay with the chain again. Was traveling alone and uncomfortable making a complaint at the desk, most of the noise was coming from there. When I returned home I contacted the customer service and told them what had happened. I received no satisfaction, I was told "we will look... More

The hotel is right next to a large landfill. The smell was awful. The clientele was less than stellar. It's an old building that needs lots of work. There was even a rusty laundry machine inside Door G and a guy working on his car in the parking lot. It was difficult to find and get to. I prepaid for... More
