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

You're staying at the America's Best Value Inn in Madison, perhaps you're there because you lost a bet, perhaps you're there because you've accepted a dare...for me, I screwed myself into this rat trap by accepting an "unpublished rate" offer on Expedia.com. So I just completed my sentence of 4 nights at this "hotel" and I have a few things... More

Staff were friendly and helpful. Distance from Epic was acceptable & commute was easy. Sink ran slow, but they fixed it in one day. Walls were pretty thin, so respect your neighbors.Shower was okay, with plenty of hot water. They only supplied shampoo, no conditioner. Room was clean, but would have liked to see more attention to detail under the... More

I think this place was a very good value for what we paid...it was quiet and clean and the breakfast was good enough. Hard to get to, yes...but once we found it during the day, made it back there at night with no problem. Would stay there again....and this time get the AAA discount ahead of time.
