This hotel was very clean and quiet. It was close to where I was visiting and very conveniently located near the expressway with easy access to visit the downtown Madison attractions and the UW campus. The complimentary breakfast was one of the best I ever had. I would definitely stay hear again.

The outside of this hotel is just lovely, and the inside is just as homey. The stairs in the middle of the property is something that I've never seen outside of B&Bs and it made it feel less like a chain and more like an individual property. The rooms were very clean and the staff very friendly. A beautiful hotel... More

The room had an odor and seemed somewhat dated. The bathroom was very dated. There were spiders on the ceiling where it met the wall. I had trouble with slow drains during the entire week I was there. The bed was comfortable and seemed clean. Plenty of pillows, blankets and towels. The rest of the facility was clean and orderly....

Hi Michael, Thank you for your honest feedback about your most recent stay. After researching your reservation, I understand your comments about the outdated look. We are waiting on the new furniture for our 3rd floor rooms - it makes the room look SO much better! I'm disappointed to hear about the issues you encountered and have addressed them with... More

Great space, quality staff, absolutely loved the early check and late check times... I wish all hotels would model themselves after this location. Every aspect of our stay was great. The selection at breakfast... WOW.

This hotel was in a convenient spot just outside the city center. With plenty of access to grocery supplies and downtown restaurants on Menona Avenue it was not out of the way as I thought it may be. The front desk staff were very helpful and upbeat.

Pleasant hotel that met all our needs for a sports team weekend.Cozy ambiance, good breakfast, relaxing whirlpool. Outdoor patio off pool area for team parent gatherings. Nice places to walk for an early morning workout. Will encourage team stays in the future.

We often choose Country Inn and Suites for our travel stays because they are clean, neat, reliable, and moderately priced. This has almost always been the case, until this one. We didn't reach the south side of Madison until about 9 and it may have been supply and demand, and the last guy in gets the higher price. Or it... More

We travelled from England to compete in Madison and stayed at the Country Inn for 6 nights. I was concerned that we were a bit out of the way but the hotel and local facilities were wonderful. The hotel was clean, the food excellent, the staff friendly and I have never slept so well. Very comfortable beds. Loved this place... More

Love the convenient, quiet location of this sweet hotel that is just off the freeway. Very nice restaurants within walking distance. Comfortable and homey. The pool is wonderful and you can step outside and enjoy the view, watch the people nearby who are taking kayaks out, or even rent one yourself and take a lesson. I shouldn't be telling you... More

We were here less than 24 hours because we took a friend to Madison for surgery. They accommodated every request we had and were very helpful and kind. We always stay at this hotel when we stay in Madison.
