I really don't know how this hotel could receive anything but great reviews. The people who work here are so happy to help us each time we visit and we love the rooms. It's the perfect location since our freshman is only a couple blocks away. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone near or traveling from afar. Amy Lau... More

I stayed here on a business trip. The hotel is perfectly located for University business and UW sporting activities. The hotel is actually part of the student union building. There is convenient underground parking, on the premises.

I have stayed at this hotel 2 times, most recently on a visit to drop my daughter off at University of Wisconsin. Great value, clean and comfortable rooms, free parking, great location. Perfect for when your travels take you to Madison and especially with college related activities.

This hotel is a great place to stay when visiting the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It's connected to one of the student unions, and close to dining options that are right in the union. It has a good view of Camp Randall stadium as well. The hotel was well maintained and very comfortable!

If you are attending an event on Campus this is the place to stay. The room rate is excellent and the rooms are great, clean and badger themed. There is no hotel tax and the parking is included. The Sett downstairs has a bar and good food. And Babcock ice cream is there as well. It's not the Memorial Union... More

The rooms were clean and spacious. Excellent Tommy Bahama personal care products. The beds were comfy. Great location and fun view. Only downside was the breakfast - pretty weak. Parking was easy and included as a Union member. Wish we were staying longer.

Great staff, always nice and willing to give you advice and help on everything. Rooms were nice and very comfortable. It's in the heart of Madison University campus. Only bad thing... no laundry on weekends.

Been to Madison 50+ times but this was first time I opted to stay overnight at union south. Booked online (their site) using my UW Madison union membership card and received confirmation (with a confirm #) for $149/night. When we checked in, we were told the rate was $179. While the student employee was friendly and helpful, the on-duty manager... More

Greetings— I apologize for any miscommunication that occurred at your check-in. You did book at the Union member rate online and you are correct that you did indicate 4 people would be in the rooms.

The hotel is nice, but we went to use the Keurig and the inside was full of mold. We took the coffee maker down to the front desk, they did not have access to housekeeping or any replacements. Told us they'd make note and kept it. Didn't have the ability to make coffee or tea. I mentioned it to the... More
