All the rooms were full in Madison and we found this place. The staff were really nice, rooms were clean and it was a quick drive to downtown. We also rented bikes and rode to town. Elevator was a bit slow and bumpy but being only four floors I often took the stairs.

We last visited the Holiday Inn Express Madison in 2009 and we were not impressed. Five years later, this property is a much better choice and we highly recommend it. The hotel underwent a top to bottom renovation, with new wall coverings, carpet and furnishings. It looks great. We also felt the staff was better than most; very engaging and... More

Nice stop on drive from Chicago to Minneapolis. Not close to any food places, but was a comfortable room with a great breakfast in the morning and nice pool to relax in the evening. Hotel staff was helpful. Safe location and easy to find. We would go back

I wanted to give this an excellent rating and came very close to it. The facility has been renovated and is lovely. The manager and the staff are very accommodating and efficient. The breakfast is pretty darn good for this price point and apparently others staying at the hotel agreed as the eating area can get packed. The rooms are... More

I've stayed at many holiday inns/affiliate hotels. This one was average. My rooms had 2 Queens, which was a BIG plus. Who sleeps on doubles anymore? Two queens are hard to find so I appreciated that. Did not hear any noise from other rooms and the hotel was full. Mini-fridge in room, which was nice. Bathroom had been remodeled and... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express our first three nights in Madison, WI. My son's company put us there for the stay (in his name - Sergey Baranov). The room was very spacious with two very comfortable queen beds. The staff was "GREAT...!" - from the front desk, to the maids and the restaurant & service personnel. The food... More
