I have stayed at this hotel around 20 nights in the last 2 months for short term housing. The hotel is clean and consistent with a staff that are friendly and seem to really care. The breakfast was full with attentive and friendly breakfast "ladies" both during the week and on the weekend. Used the fitness center every morning and... More

Visited Monona, which is what this hotel is closer to than Madison by far, for a funeral and stayed for one night. Let me preface by saying that I have had family in this area for many years but never stayed at this property because it was priced so much higher than everything else close by so had high expectations....

I made several phone calls to this hotel while planning my sister's bachelorette party. The staff members were pleasant, helpful and easy to work with. The renovated building was very nice.

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.

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.

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
