“A Madison Place to Stay”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

Yolanda, the manager, runs a great hotel. While most of our stays are for business, this one is for pleasure. The hotel is ideally located in Madison, just a short, easy drive to downtown and the capitol. Even though this is a traditional HIEx, this place is very clean and all of the staff are incredibly accomodating, meeting even the most unique requests. It is pet -friendly and our dog is as welcome as we are. Breakfast buffet is traditional for and Express, but food turned over quickly (hence, fresh) and the fruit, etc. is much fresher than many we stay at. A good value for a relaxing stay. As a business owner, I would stay here as well.

We go to Madison several times a year and we love staying here! It is an easy location as it is only a couple minutes' drive to get downtown. Certain evenings they have a free drink/appetizer social in the lobby, which was a lot of fun. We also like the pool and whirlpool area.

I stayed at this hotel while in town for a business meeting. I was there for 3 nights. The property is alright - it is a little dated looking, but generally clean.

There's a breakfast buffet that was pretty good. I liked the coffee especially. In the evenings they have free drinks (I think just wine and beer) and snacks. They do limit the drinks for each person, so no one goes overboard.

The room was clean and quiet. I could hear a few bumps and toilet flushes but that's it. They are going with the trend of having two sheets and a duvet for the bed linens, which I personally do not like. I'm either too hot or too cold. The room was equipped nicely with iron, hair dryer, mini fridge, microwave, TV, wireless internet (free). I wished there were a few more outlets for charging all my gadgets.

I checked out the exercise room and it was tiny and cramped. They put a mirror on the one wall to make it seem bigger. There is a stationary bike, a treadmill, and an elliptical. I didn't use the equipment, so I don't know how good it works. It looked like good quality equipment.

The staff was very polite and professional. The room was cleaned nicely each day. The shower was a good forcefulness.

Overall, I think it's a good place to stay. Definitely not luxury, but adequate, clean, and safe.

We enjoyed this hotel. The had evening reception, great breakfast, clean room/pool, and a great staff. The hotel is a little hard to find if you don't know where to look. It is tucked back behind another hotel on John Nolen drive. Couldn't be happier with thew stay.

Room Tip: Get there before 7 pm for the free drinks and snacks

This is an older holiday inn. We had wanted to stay at another location but they were all full so we came into Madison. Older rooms, older tv...they should really update the place a little bit.

It was okay for the night but wouldn't recommend for a longer stay.
