The customer service at this hotel is horrible! I have never been treated so badly at a hotel before! There was a group of us there with our kids after a youth wrestling tournament. We were kicked out of the lobby and out of the halls and told we had to go to our rooms at 8:30 at night. We... More

This group decided, without the knowledge or consent of the hotel, to occupy our breakfast room and lobby and have a party, complete with alcoholic beverages, and watch the Badger NCAA basketball game. At no time did this group ever contact management and ask that an area be set aside for such a gathering as they would have been told... More

The location was just perfect - not to far from the university and capital. We drove in for a campus tour and after 5 hours in the car it was nice to have easy location and friendly staff. After looking online at reviews I was worried about a "smell" but the only thing we "smelled" was NEW everything! Great remodel... More

Front desk staff very friendly. New renovations very nice and clean. Location great. Rooms quiet. Breakfast buffet and coffee fantastic. Definitely worth the price for the double bed room! Great stay and will be back!

My friend and I came to visit my cousin and go out for a night on the town, we just wanted a cheapish hotel to sleep at. We weren't looking for anything too extravagant, just somewhere that we could sleep comfortably and was just a short cab ride from the downtown area. But our room was absolutely ridiculous!!

Our hotel has just completed a total renovation of the bathroom and most of the items in the hotel are now new. We do have the heat on in the rooms, as the temperature outside on most days has been below zero. We feel guests would rather come in to a room that is heated than uncomfortably cold. There is...

We have been coming here since my 10 yr old was born. We now have a 5 and 10 year old and it still fits our needs. Very nice hotel for the price. It has a nice size pool indoor and out, a nice kiddie splash area and one larger slide for bigger kids. Perfect for a little weekend getaway!... More

I wanted to give this hotel a good review just because the bed was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. But, my overall experience was such that I can't.
