I have been to Madison several times (to drop my son at college) and have stayed at different hotels each time. This one was my favorite. The location was excellent (right off State Street), the hotel was cozy and charming, the breakfast was simple but hot and tastey AND parking was included. The rooms were not huge, but they served...

This Inn has a friendliness and feeling of quality service that sets it apart from the standard fare. Outstanding location when visiting Madison. Walkable to excellent restaurants, not too far to the capitol building and other downtown things to do. Breakfast was good and very clean, comfortable rooms. The front desk staff are classy and helpful with suggestions.

This hotel was undergoing some construction during my stay for a much needed update. All the decor was very old. The hotel room itself was clean, but pretty worn. I had some trouble with the TV, but was able to fix it. The rooms were rather tiny and I have never seen a full size bed in a hotel room.... More

Dear Deannanna, Thank you for your comments.

Stayed two nights and had great time. Friendly staff were very helpful right from the get go. Comfortable room with all amenities provided. Great free breakfast, tastier than I would have expected with good donuts and croissants. Quiet and comfortable. Would certainly stay here again.

Stayed there one weeknight in November - very cold outside, but with underground parking, fireplace in the lobby, warm (if on the small side) rooms, and great location with State Street, UW, etc all within easy walking distance this is a great find. Hotel staff was very nice. If you plan to stay there during football weekend their parking is... More

This hotel looks very nice from the outside. It is in a great location. Aside from location, there was nothing great about it. Our room was tiny and wallpaper was peeling. They had NO parking available. None. There was a badger game that day and allowed people to park there. Although we paid for a room, we had to park... More

Stayed for two nights and overall good experience. Nice touches like they pay for cab to and from airport and free shuttle to campus. Also decent breakfast and complimentary appetizers. Negatives were soft uncomfortable mattress (at least to my taste) and WiFi a little spotty. Overall good experience.

Picked this hotel at the last minute and had a great experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was very nice. Very quiet, even though there were several families with small children. The free appetizer in the evening and free breakfast the next morning was a bonus I wasn't expecting. I would definitely stay there again.

We've stayed at the Campus Inn several times, so when we were planning room blocks for our July 2014 wedding, this was an obvious pick. The location is perfect, the rooms are lovely and the freebies (breakfast, evening appetizers) are a nice perk. The sales staff was so easy to work with, and the weekend of, the front desk staff...

I really like this hotel. The staff is very friendly and the facility is charming if a little old fashioned, and it's in a great location. However, if you need internet service to stay in touch with work or the world it's really a problem. The Wifi is virtually non-functional, and you are tied to a 2 foot long ethernet... More
