“Beautiful and comfortable rooms”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Great hotel across from the park in Madison. It's an easy 2 block walk to the town square with shops along the way. The hotel was absolutely spotless, and the room well appointed. We had a king room with a rollaway for a third person. The bed was very comfortable and I loved all the feather pillows. We stayed in the first room on the first floor, so I think it was a bit noisier because of it's adjacency to the lobby and the street. The blue LED on the TV annoyed me all night long, but maybe others are used to little lights like that. The bathroom was clean and spacious with two sinks and a separate toilet which was nice for 3 ladies trying to get ready at the same time.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side can be a bit loud, but traffic isn't a big problem. We stayed on the fi...

We were greeted by the sweetest check-in lady I've ever met. If you want to feel like you've traveled to Mayberry with a little bit of Ritz then this is your place to visit. The hotel room was very spacious and beautiful, the people were warm and gracious and the food was fantastic!

Room Tip: Only 17 rooms and 2 suites, all the rooms are great!

We spent only one night at the James Madison Inn . That was not long enough for this lovely Inn or for the town of Madison. Our room was lovely and very clean and well appointed. The location was great, right off of Main Street and right in front of Madison Markets. The breakfast was delicious.

We had a wonderful stay at the James Madison Inn. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It is within walking distance to all the shops and restaurants and very easy to get around the town. The room was very nice with great pillows and very comfort bed. The two chairs were nice to have so you are closer to the tv and fireplace. We had a great and relaxing time.

My husband and I go to the James Madison Inn at least once a year for a couples getaway. The staff are the most gracious and helpful people you can find. We love the Inn the rooms are so cozy. This is the place we always go to relax.

This was a wonderful place for a getaway--small town, friendly people, great little shops and antique markets. The staff were all super helpful and friendly--went out of their way to make us at home, including putting a chilled bottle of wine in our room when we asked where we could buy a bottle. We drank our wine on the balcony overlooking the lovely city park. Food nearby was all excellent! Kudos to the staff for their welcoming spirit!

Room Tip: Either side of inn is quiet--we were on street side next to the elevator--usually a red flag, but al...
