“Always a great choice if you have little kids”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We have stayed here around 5 times over the years, with the last time this New Years Eve. The staff is always pleasant, it's always clean, the mini waterpark is perfect for smaller kids, there's a bar in the pool area that opens in the evenings. I like that they don't charge exhorbitant food and beverage charges, and that they had mutiple free activites / movies going on for New Years for the kids that was a pleasant surprise. It's the perfect place to go with your family for a night or two, and they won't nickel or dime you once you get there. Really the only drawback are the mattresses... they really offer no support and need to be replaced.

All hotels should model after this one. Large, clean and modern rooms, very friendly and helpful service, waterpark great for small kids. Restaurant was great and inexpensive for lunch. I'd skip it for breakfast, buffet was not good (only problem with hotel).

I am glad you had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Madison West home of Crawdaddy Cove Waterpark. Our hotel is the perfect location for parents with small children. The waterpark has a fun play area with 0 depth pool area- pool with waterslide, game area and whirlpool. It less stressful for the parents. All rooms have refrigerators and microwaves which is also great for families traveling with small children. Our restaurant offers the kids eat free Holiday Inn Program - open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So you don't even need to leave the hotel. We look forward to seeing you again the next time you are visiting Madison
Thank you

Great start to a hopeful new relationship with Holiday Inn after my long standing Diamond loyalty to Hilton Honors from many years. Nice friendly greeting and very organized with my check in to their property. Breakfast is superb, with an incredible array of hot choices, but was disappointed when I could not take my breakfast to go (I was traveling alone then) when I may be running late, or just wanted to work on my email while noshing. Kudos to hotel management to work with their restaurant during my three week stay so I could take my breakfast to go on a regular basis.
Plumbing had problems during my stays, toilet pipe had burst with a 1/4" deep pond forming in the bathroom, threshold shored up with towels to prevent further water damage to adjent carpet in room, and leaked down to the room below. Slipped and fell while attempting to shut off, no immediate harm. Needed maintenance at least two more times for plumbing issues during my stays. GOOD things - always a good clean room, amazingly delicious breakfast, fast response when required, nice tasteful decor in common area, lots of parking stalls, and very, very quiet.

Room Tip: Choose a room that does not face the dumpsters as they are picked up around 4:00am and it may wake y...

We came to this hotel with our kids ages 10 and 7. They really enjoyed playing in the waterpark. The hotel service was great, the rooms were spacious and clean and the attached Italian restaurant was fabulous. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay at our hotel. It is the perfect place to getaway with your family, with Crawdaddy Cove Waterpark for kids of all ages. The waterpark is not so large that you can't relax as you are watching your kids play on the slides. The restaurant is great and offers the kids eat free program for guest's of the hotel so you don't even have to leave the hotel.

We look forward to seeing you again when you are visiting our area.

We had a wonderful time at this hotel! The rooms were clean and spacious. The waterpark was so much fun for the kids and adults, plenty of room to hang out and watch the kids play, lifeguards on duty was a plus, too. The Italian restaurant was also very good. We will definitely be coming back and making this an annual family weekend. I would highly recommend this hotel for families with small children.

Our family planned a weekend getaway at this Holiday Inn and could not be more satisfied. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the service was outstanding, and the waterpark was perfect for our family. The restaurant in the hotel has delicious Italian food, but there are also several bar/restaurants within walking distance, as well. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We booked a weekend with our kids and grandchildren and picked this motel because it had a waterpark. The grandkids had so much fun in the waterpark. Our oldest grandchild was 10 if your kids are older than that this park might not be big enough. Our grandkids are between the ages of 5-10 and this was perfect. The rooms were very nice and clean. If you want to shop there is a mall very close to the motel and lots of restaurants within walking distance, plus a very good Italian restaurant right in the motel.
