“Not quite as advertised”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

Clean rooms, comfortable beds and two televisions in the suite. Fridge and micro were a must since the free breakfast was dismal. It wouldn't take much to improve the breakfast - employing someone to tend the area would be the first improvement. The whole eating area is very attractive and open, but only once did we see anyone working the area in the four days that we stayed. The hot tub area looks out over a pond, the hot tub was hot but the pool is maybe 10 x 5 feet. The workout area was nice but two pieces of equipment were broken throughout our stay. Staff also needs to know that a surprise party means not putting up signs!

Room Tip: Holiday Inn a block away had a bar and kid- friendly pool area. Irish pub three blocks away.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. During the Thanksgiving holiday, our Reflect restaurant was closed so our staff could spend some time with their families. We offered a free continental breakfast to all of our guests for the holiday as well as a well stocked "Grab N Go" pantry to purchase items. Your comments will be shared with the staff to see if we may reconsider this plan for the next holiday. Thanks again. -Dave Monte

We stayed here for just one night as we were driving through town. I regret that we didn't get a chance to stay here longer! The place is immaculate. The room is laid out very thoughtfully - it reminds me of a Hyatt Place but is much better, actually. We didn't eat breakfast downstairs since we brought our own food but the buffet is a nice touch. No problems with any of the staff. I'll be sure to check out Cambria Suites in other locations in the future!

I recently stayed at the Cambria Suites for one night with two friends in a two bedroom king suite. The suite was very spacious, equipped with a living room area (with a sleeper sofa), bar area with mini refrigerator, coffee station, and large bathroom. It was more than comfortable for three guests and we enjoyed our stay. The room(s) were very clean, the beds comfy, and the three flat screen television a nice bonus.

Room Tip: The king suite was quite large and very airy - would highly recommend.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. It's so nice to have some extra space in your guest room where you can spreadout. The two flat screen tv's also is an extra bonus when there are multiple people in the room. Comfort is our business! Thanks again!- Dave Monte

I stayed here 2 times while in Madison. Short distance to the mall and eating.
The room was clean and the staff was friendly. We wanted to order room service but the cook didnt show up for work. The staff told us of the Irish Pub right down the street. It was very good.
I think we will make this a regular place to stay.

I have no idea why this hotel isn't rated higher. I've been in higher rated hotels in Madison and quite frankly fail to see it. This hotel has a great location, extremely clean, great rooms and the price was very reasonable. The only reason I didn’t give it a higher rating is the people at the desk were not very welcoming. I will stay here again and I recommend it.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are very nice

Stayed for evening Badger Football Game. Location is off the highway and a good distance from the stadium and the downtown but that helps keep the noise down. Very clean and targeted towards business travelers. The pool size was smaller but very clean. Would recommend for a visit to Madison.

My wife, granddaughter and I traveled to Madison to watch son in law play for U of MN against UW. We couldn't have found a nicer place to stay. Our suite had a king bed and a sofa bed in two separate rooms each with a nice flat screen TV. The room was neat, clean and quiet. The bathroom modern with good pressure in the shower. We didn't spend a lot of time at the hotel as we spent Friday roaming around State St. and left right after the game on Sat. The people we met, both working and guests, were friendly and helpful. We went down to bar Friday night for a drink and the bartender/wait staff were very nice. It was a bit of a drive, 10 miles to stadium from hotel but an easy commute. They have a small but looked good breakfast buffet in the morning for $9.95, we stuck with just bagels and coffee. We very much liked staying at the Cambria and would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor (top) and were very happy.

We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We always have football fans stay with us for UW football games. We are just a straight shot down East Washington to get to the Capital and the downtown area. It seems that your room was just perfect for your needs. We hope to see you soon when your travels bring you back to Madison.- Dave Monte
