Stayed here for one night two weeks ago. The front desk was okay, but not very welcoming. Our rooms weren't quite ready, but we were there prior to check in time, so that's totally understandable. The hallways were a little scary looking with red primer on the walls, but they are undergoing renovations, and that does take time, so there... More

Room smelled bad. Bathroom Floor was sticky. Carpeting was moist and sticky. Breakfast sucked- orange juice was 75% water and a disappointing selection. They do not keep up this hotel. Paint missing. Chucks of tile missing.

We stayed in a room with a king sized bed. Although everything is not brand new, it is definitely clean and well looked after. As we were staying here for six nights, we had a chance to get to know the feel of the place. Ward, our breakfast host, was friendly and efficient (although the food at breakfast was the... More

The hotel rooms were roomy and clean. There was free breakfast in the lobby that includes the usual toast, pastries, eggs, juices, etc. I was hoping that they would offer yogurts as this is my usual breakfast. The water pressure and temperature of the shower was perfect. They have a small gym and heated pool but I did not have... More

Everything about this hotel was A+. It was clean, orderly and the staff was outstanding -- pleasant and very helpful. Only request is that they pop the popcorn more often. Also, breakfast is a lot more then "continental". It included eggs, potatoes, make own waffles, little muffins, fruit, cereal plus oatmeal. Would definitely stay here again.

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 found this hotel with an app on my phone for a total of 100 a night which is hard to come by now a days if you want a decent nights sleep. Pros... desk staff was great and very friendly. The overall first look around was very nice. Nice lobby with a few places to sit and read a... 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
