I had to work in Janesville for three weeks and was put up at this hotel.
The staff was friendly and helpful. Despite being here a long time I was greeted by smiles and hellos every time I walked in. There was ample free parking and I always felt secure.
Some areas of the hotel are being cosmetically updated this year, no construction. I had a room with a king bed. Room cleaning occurred about 1130 each day for me. Most such rooms are being equipped with a refrigerator and microwave; in the meantime, put in a request if you will actually need one. I know the maintenance staff gets on troubles ASAP. We were having an extreme heat wave. Last night the guy replaced 9 units that started having trouble (I heard about it the next day). My room had no problems. The grounds and hotel were clean and neat. The laundry room has only one washer and one dryer. You will need quarters; the front desk can provide change. There is a decent sized pool and hot tub. The exercise room is very small with only about three machines. No restaurant, but who needs one . . . read below location comments.
The room has a desk with chair and a comfortable couch. An ample dresser has four drawers. Atop that is an LCD TV of adequate size for the room. It has plugins that could adapt peripherals. There are multiple lamps to keep it bright. The bed was comfortable. The closet is a small open one near the door. The bathroom, sink and toilet area were all one, no separate sink. It was a tub/shower arrangement with a bowed out curtain. The shower head is at about 6 feet.
There is an included breakfast bar with bagels, English muffins (one four slot toaster that is a bit slow), a pancake maker, fresh cinnamon rolls, yogurt, cereals, instant oatmeal, bacon or sausage (not both), biscuits and gravy, several coffees and hot water. At 5 on some weekdays there has been free popcorn and beer; I am unclear on the regularity of this.
Location is convenient to shopping and restaurants. Within a couple of miles there are a couple of major grocery stores, Walmart, Home Depot, Staples, Best Buy, Texas Roadhouse, Famous Dave's, Walmart, Mercy Urgent Care, McDs, a mall (with fast food) Red Robin and more. Within four miles are more restaurants. St Mary's Hospital is less than ten minutes away. There is a multiplex theater a mile away. Fudrucker's restaurant is in the parking lot. Across the street is a Travel America with gas, convenience store, truck service and I think a laundromat.
Most entertainment is out of town. Madison is the main urban destination, about 45 minutes away. But there are other places to go within the same time. Archealogical Indian mounds of Mississippian and even more prehistoric peoples, big and small farms, many lakes, small towns that are a combination of nostalgia and keeping up, a restored Ft Atkinson with palisades and blockhouses. Apparent Cave of the Mounds is not far. Milwaukee, and the Brewers, are 1h 20m, Chicago is 2h 45 m.
