First trip to Madison and the Wisconsin Visitor's Center recommended this property. They were spot on. although the hotel is in a remote/rural location, it is freeway adjacent and easy on/off access. The hotel is very well-maintained and desk staff were polite and attentive. Although the property was prretty well booked, we were given a room away from elevators, stairs,... More

I picked this hotel because the price was just too good to turn down. Thankfully, I had friends in the city that were happy to pick me up from the airport and take me to the hotel, as well as pick me up the next day, to show me around. It's fairly close to the airport, as well as the... More

Spent one night here visiting friends. Pros: Comfy bed. Easy to get to. Ok accommodations. Breakfast was actively attended by a server who seemed to take his job seriously. Neutral: Breakfast had real scrambled eggs but no meat. Multiple fruit options was nice. No food close by - not a big to us as we had reservations elsewhere - but... More

Clean and spacious rooms were very appreciated. It is right off the freeway but a couple minutes to get to it which was worth the drive for the value. Be sure to eat before you book as there is nothing quick and close. Love the organic soaps

Was passing through and came across this hotel. Staff were friendly and rate was only 89.00 for a great room. Hotel is quiet, clean and has 24 hour pool, hot tub, fitness room and business office. Plus, their breakfast uses real eggs. :)

Don't think I've ever been to a hotel that offered 24-hour access to their pool and jacuzzi which was amazing after arriving late and thrilled to be able to relax and enjoy it. The beds were comfortable, room spacious and clean, front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. I really enjoyed the hot breakfast items, fresh blueberries and rasberries... More

I would like to thank the staff for all of their assistance during our stay. We booked the Magnuson for our wedding guests to stay following our wedding reception.
