Nice hotel, but the room was cold even with heat on max. The room door leaked light and cold along all four edges. No fridge. Most comfortable bed in any hotel. The food for breakfast was excellent.

I paid a pretty decent rate for a working guy. Stayed several days. The hotel isn't new and the halls are kind of drafty, and I wouldn't eat off of the carpeted floors either. My room was cleaned when i need it, and my fridge and microwave worked. Hot, free and "REAL" breakfast, coffee and more to get me going in the morning. A pool and hot tub to relax after a hard days work. Internet and tv worked fine. The hotel was quiet and in a good location. Wouldn't ask for much more. There are plenty of high priced overrated hotels to choose from in Madison...Howard Johnson worked just fine for me!

We stayed here last weekend for one night. The front desk was friendly and helpful. Our room looked like it had been updated and everything was fine. They had a notice in the lobby that talked about what was being remodeled to date and what was coming up which we found interesting. The hotel is located by shopping and many restaurants so it was very convenient for us. The pool is huge and was not very busy. Breakfast the next morning had a great variety and the area was clean and the food fresh. We really enjoyed Mike (the attendent) who had a smile for everyone. He broke out in a cute Thanksgiving song that made us laugh! The hotel is older but being updated and worked fine for out stay.
