We stopped in Madison on a Christmas trip around Wisconsin. We had only planned on a one night stay but with 8" of snow overnight we decided not to travel the next day. The staff was very accomodating and made sure we had a room to stay in. The rooms are very nice (executive king suite) and reasonably priced. The... More

Just staying overnight in Madison. Got a good deal on priceline. Room was clean, large, and quiet. Staff was nice, breakfast was decent but not that great. Seemed close to lots of restaurants. Easy on and off highway.

We stay at the Country Inn every tim we go to Madison to see friends, attend the farmers market, see a play, or just enjoy partying on State St. It is in a nice location next to the beltway on the south side of Madison. Even with the traffic, the rooms are nice and quiet and comfortable. The staff is... More

Could not ask for a better more friendly staff at an excellent location in the Madison Wi area. It seems they thought of everything to make for a really nice stay. Quick check-in, nice room and then off to enjoy a concert at the Magestic Theatre. Returning at 01:00am and finding cookies and hot beverages available was a nice surprise!... More

My family and I recently stayed at this hotel for two nights. We arrived just after Halloween so there were still many Halloween decorations up which delighted my wife and children. The hotel and room were clean and well-appointed--no musty or undesirable smells or sights. The heating/thermostat worked well and the bed was comfortable. The staff we encountered were friendly...

Two women traveling together much appreciated having a separate bedroom with twin beds and a king bed in the living area. However, the door between the rooms was glass, with no curtain, which might not be private enough for couples traveling with kids. I like that this chain will often offer an upgrade when booking online. The hot breakfast was... More

Clean, comfortable and nicely appointed - a good value. Better than average breakfast - with REAL plates! Walking distance to grocery, coffee shops & restaurants. Easy interstate access. Complimentary coffee bar, cookies & "Read it and Return" library. Attentive customer service.
