“Great Family Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We booked a weekend with our kids and grandchildren and picked this motel because it had a waterpark. The grandkids had so much fun in the waterpark. Our oldest grandchild was 10 if your kids are older than that this park might not be big enough. Our grandkids are between the ages of 5-10 and this was perfect. The rooms were very nice and clean. If you want to shop there is a mall very close to the motel and lots of restaurants within walking distance, plus a very good Italian restaurant right in the motel.

The Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Madison West - offers a great place to bring your small children with our Crawdaddy Cove Waterpark - perfect for ages 2 and over. The waterpark has a game area and whirlpool along with 1 large slide that goes into the pool area and the boat area which is great for children 6 and under. Our on-site restaurant and lounge are open for breakfast, lunch & dinner so you don't even need to leave the hotel.

We are located just 2 blocks for shopping and restaurants as well.

Thank you again for choosing the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites for your weekend getaway.

Our stay at the Hotel was great! I have a 3 year old who enjoyed the water-park. The adults had fun in the water park also. The basketball hoop in the pool was a great feature. They also had two lifeguards on duty who were very professional (they had to yell at some kids a few times and were great about it) The rooms were nice and clean and the beds were comfortable. The staff were friendly and the restaurant that was attached had delicious food and nice service. We will surely be staying there again!!

We had a family gathering here for the weekend. This is a great hotel with a waterpark for smaller children with 2 lifeguards on duty. Plenty of tables and chairs to visit while the kids were swimming. We ate at the Italian restaurant in the hotel which was very good and they were very accommodating with our large group. We plan on doing this again!

Room Tip: We had an extra large room for the family to gather in to eat and play games together.

Stayed there Nov 7th, 2012. Room was very nice. Bed was comfortable falling asleep but woke up with sore back. Don't blame them for that. Comfortable beds are a very individual thing. Only room criticism, and a small one at that, was 1 bathroom vanity light of 5 was out over bathroom sink. Free WSJ was unexpected and welcome. Staff was friendly and helpful.

One significant criticism-Breakfast was poor at best. Typical make-it-yourself waffles that were unappetizing; cold cereal; small, prepackaged, tasteless rolls. Coffee was tolerable. Next time I'm going out.

Room Tip: I was in room 1038, near the pool and work out room. Pretty quiet down at that end, YMMV.

We were in town to visit friends and wanted something to do with our 2 & 6 year old.
2year old was free, 6year old was $10, the adults were charged $15 each.
The area was very nicely maintained, 2 lifeguards on duty, large hot tub area, play area for little kids and a big, slow slide that was perfect for the 6year old. Even has a nice sized arcade for $.50 a play.
Everything was clean and had a nice decor. There is a bar area but it was not staffed when we were there.
The hot tub is HUGE, says 20 people but that is a very comfortable 20 people. Big enough to let the kids swim (if alone).
The pool has a pirate ship with 2 slide for my 2year old and a fountain slide for her to climb on too. The big pool is big enough to swim around, there is a basket ball goal and ball in the water too. The slide is big enough for elementary age kids to enjoy but 13year + would be a little board with it.
Definately does not compete with a Dells park but very nice for an afternoon.
