Very clean room.. Many restaurants nearby. Price can't be beat. Always friendly, helpful staff. 15 minute drive to state street and capital. Rooms may not be available during Badger games so book early if staying during football season.

Doing a cross-country trip and were looking to save some money along the way so weren't expecting much. We ended up leaving the next day rather than staying the two days we'd planned. The room was ok (other than the hole kicked in the back of the bathroom door and the kids running down the hall playing tag until after... More

Yikes! I understand that this is supposed to be a value hotel but come on! Our first room was so nasty but we were only sleeping there so we didn't bother trying to move until we found the broken glass all over the bathroom from a picture that had fallen off the wall. The night attendant (Terri, who was the... More

This is a very old, dated and worn down property. We chose it because of the chain's free pet policy but would never stay here - or another Red Roof Inn again. Despite its no smoking policy, the room reeked of stale smoke; most of the other guests appeared to be long stay labourers and many were smoking on the... More

Reminded me of something from the 50's. I was helping my daughter (student) move, turned out that we didn't arrive until 10 and left at 7 so it ended up being essentially somewhere to sleep. I have stayed at several hotels/motels of a similar price in Madison, they were nicer than this one and most of the time have had... More

used this as a stopover on the way to Chicago. was what you would expect for a cheap hotel: kind of noisy, kind of run down. bed was comfortable and the front desk people were courteous. wouldn't want to plan a vacation staying here many nights, but worked fine for our purposes.

since this is less than $60 a night, one cannot have high expectations. i didn't experience any of the oddities that some other reviewers did but the room was clean and very basic, the bed was comfortable enough and the property is close to several restaurants of the fast food and service style so there are options - there is...

You sure do get what you pay for. No thrills, but free WiFi and coffee. Walls are thin so you hear almost everything. Rooms are close to cars so you hear people coming and going all the time. And of you get up early enough you can see the "woman of the night" leaving in their pimp bus.
