“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

The building is in disrepair, rooms are TINY, there are sketchy individuals running around the parking lot (one who slashed my tire), the plumbing is insanely loud, there are children running around in the hallway loudly. The front desk guy was nice, fast and did his best, but this hotel is pretty far gone that he could only do so much. This is more of a last resort hotel where some people live, not really a hotel for travelers. I left after an hour.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

Thank you for choosing our hotel while you were in Madison, and took a few minutes to share with us about your experience. As our hotel is a little older, the rooms appear to be a little smaller as the bathrooms only have the toilet and tub while vanity area is outside the bathroom. As we do have a high occupancy in the summer time, we do have more people and traffic around the hotel, but rest assured this is a very safe area. We apologize the hotel was not up to your expectations.

they promised me a room at 1 when i got there by 10.30, at 1 they offered me a room smaller than what i booked. i went to check the room, it was horrible and looked really creepy. so i asked if i can still get the room that i booked, they said at 3. i come back at 5 only to find out my name is not in the system. never ever ever book this hotel, it's too much hassle. to make things worse, the manager didnt try to solve the problem, they asked me to call the customer service, wow! way to treat your guest. never ever stay in this hotel. another hotel i am about to book told me there's only bad thing in this hotel, so my suspicion is confirmed.

Thank you for sharing with us your experience while you stayed with us here in Madison. It appears there has been some communication issue, as I am the General Manager, and do not recall having hearing this issue. Rest assured, I would like to hear about more of this in detail if you wouldnt mind contacting me by phone or email, I would greatly apprecate it.
