I was recently sent to Madison, WI for a research project that lasted ~3 months. Originally I was looking into hotels vs. extended stay chain, until i found Countryside.
The value proposition is simple - for the same price of a hotel/extended stay, you can book a full-size well-furnished apartment with more amenities. It's a no brainer, which is why during the high seasons, they seems to rarely have availability.
The property is in a convenient location (off the Beltline), and very close to downtown Madison (University of Wisconsin area) where I was working. The neighborhood and property is quiet, wooded, and very serene. The apartment was spacious, very nicely furnished, and had all the amenities you would need when staying somewhere for more than a week (this was very important to me!).
The building itself is a little bit old, but they obviously put a lot of care into building upkeep, with both the public space and inside the apartments. I agree with the previous posters that any extreme negative comments are completely unfounded. The building is kept extremely clean, and any issue that you might run into (staying somewhere for a few months), whether is be maintenance, or amenities - is IMMEDIATELY addressed. Connie and the whole team at Countryside continuously went above and beyond to ensure my comfort and feeling on home.
I spoke with numerous other guests during my stay, and I can say most people felt the same way as I did. I originally booked here because the pricing can't be beat, and I shopped around heavily. The great customer care, and charm of this place will keep me coming back whenever I return to town for business.
