I was visiting Madison for a few months on business, and a friend of mine recommended Countryside Apartments. He had stayed there while building his new house a year ago, and said he enjoyed the experience.
It's actually in the perfect location, right between downtown and the west side, off the beltine. I thought it might be noisy, but its actually in the wooded Arbor Hills neighborhood, so you never hear or see the traffic. Its very peaceful and serene especially in the summer!
I could get to the Alliant energy center or the Monona Terrace, in less than 5 minutes by car. The apartments are very spacious, and furnished with absolutely everything you could need.
They have multiple brand new computer centers, with Windows Vista / Microsoft Office / Pentium Dual Core fully loaded computers, that are connected to their own private T1 line. Each master bedroom has a ethernet connection as well, and I got pretty decent wireless from my laptop (they have wireless coverage for all of their apartments).
The thing that made the stay the most enjoyable was their various unique amenities. They have an amazing DVD and VHS video library, with some of the greatest films of all time. Their property is pretty spacious so their are a lot of areas that are great for private BBQ's, or taking a walk, especially on their trails. I think they also provide free bike rentals for the trails, too, but I'm not sure.
Overall, for the price, location, space, and extra unique amenities, it was a great experience for someone who needed a home in Madison that was more than a hotel experience.
