I stayed here for a UW Extension course that was taking place at the Pyle center just a block and a half down the street. The day I got there it was an unusually warm day (in the 70's in mid march) and when I got to my room, it was hot and stuffy. I did not see any room... More

The facility is currently being renovated, and the room that I was assigned to was on a floor that was being redone. Should not have put people on that floor. Hallways and carpets littered with construction materials, tools and debris. Hot water was also not really working well, and had a brownish rusty color. Am a government worker and have... More

The Lowell Center is my go-to hotel when traveling to Madison to visit the UW-Madison campus or anything on State street. The location absolutely can't be beat. The bonus for me is that at state-rates, the pricing is perfect and they throw in a fabulous hot breakfast as well. If you can get a room on the newly renovated side... More

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
