I booked this room online based on the idea of good value for a night's stay. When I arrived in Madison, I had difficulty finding the motel - mainly because the actual motel was misrepresented in the picture online and the sign is old and faded - looked like a sign that would be attached to an old, closed motel....

The rates are cheap, which is why we picked this hotel. Driving up - nothing impressive; tucked off service drive; you have to pass the entrance to the landfill to get to the parking lot; looks a little sketchy pulling up but staff was friendly. Room had been updated, was small but clean. No coffee pot :( Breakfast in the... More

Overall the stay was good. Front desk difficult to understand, but is helpful. Property is located on a side road to 12/18 so that is just annoying. Property is next to landfill, but only even smelled that when on access road. Property is tired, but well painted. Breakfast was marvelous (2 waffle makers, pancake maker, omelet station, biscuits and gravy,... More

OK, so this motel was rated 2 stars on Booking.com so that's what I expected. My expectations were met. It is very basic, but my room and bathroom were clean, and the king sized bed was reasonably comfortable (LOTS of pillows). I think other very negative reviews I read are a little unfair given the level one should have expected... More

I stayed here while I was working in Madison. I reserved my room online because it was an inexpensive place to stay. I arrived to check in and the lady at the front desk was very rude and didn't want to honor my pre reserved room price. I finally ended up getting my room after a bit of discussion. I... More

The hotel picture was taken from a distance for a reason. Close up it is very run down and shabby. It seems to cater to construction workers and people that are one step from being homeless. There was not a coffee pot in the room as advertised. There was not a 24hr attendant at the front desk. The room was... More

I expected the room to be bigger. The picture was not very accurate. The hotel is more apartment like where you literally get a key to open the door. It seems very old and in a bad area because of the way the doors lock on the hotel room. I just expected something a bit nicer.

A great room for the price. All the basics you would expect. Clean room & bathroom. Tv & all the channels you expect. You can't beat the breakfast. Make your own omelet, biscuits & gravy & potatoes & fruit bar w/hard boiled eggs & waffles/pancakes. On the weekend, sausage links. On top of all that, I left my smart phone... More
