An affordable hotel that family can stay at and be walking distance to any activities related to UW Madison. We all stayed for our nieces graduation and were able to walk to everything and stay together. A full breakfast is included which was great. The rooms not fancy but very clean and comfortable. Near the Union Memorial which is nice... More

Perfect location, just besides the lake and takes 1 minute walk to memorial union, State street and campus. Big indoor swimming pool, delicious breakfast, and extremely comfortable mattress for good deep sleep. Good price too.

Stayed there for one night for a Sabeel Conference at the Pyle Center..The location was perfect with parking right on site. The staff, especially Mary and a young college student, (did not get his name) were very helpful! The room was super clean and the breakfast was delicious. The price was very reasonable! Thanks so much! The only setback is,... More

I have stayed here four times in the past eight years and have found it mostly nice. The location is great, for sure--one block from State Street, though right amidst the fraternities, which might be off-putting for some. The positives: refurbished rooms, with very comfortable beds, plenty of hot water, and a decent breakfast (not super quality, but good diversity,... More

We stayed at the Lowell Center for four days while moving our daughter into her apartment. It was a surprisingly good experience. The location can’t be beat for anyone visiting the downtown area. You are in the heart of State St, fraternity/sorority row, and several private dorms. We paid $109 (which is about $100/night cheaper then the nearest hotel) for... More

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to UW-Madison for a quick weekend visit. Lowell Hall was a very good choice. While the facility resembles an old dormitory (it was), our upgraded room was comfortable with a nice view of Lake Mendota. There was only a shower in the bathroom, but that was fine with us. The location... More
