I had to stay an extra night in Madison for business and the hotel I had been staying in was fully booked, so the booking site suggested this place. I took a cab late in the evening and found myself at a rundown place by the freeway. The check-in clerk was very pleasant, but the bulletproof glass/ bank teller slot in the office did not give me a warm and fuzzy feeling (more of a Bates Motel feeling). The room itself was quite clean, as was the bed, the bathroom had evidently been refurbished at some point, and the TV worked. The door and window were very flimsy and the walls very thin (fortunately not a lot of other guests that night), so the freeway noise came right in. For the price, this would have been a tolerable lodging, except that the room had the worst stench I have ever encountered in my years of travelling all over. I could not identify the source or nature of this, but it seemed to permeate everything and made it almost impossible to sleep. I could not recommend this establishment unless there is no other choice.
