This was an AWFUL Hotwire purchase. The Hotwire price was less then the Clarion price, but still not worth it. Our bathroom was dirty and it took 5+ min of running the water to get it warm enough to shower. The "complementary" breakfast was a filthy buffet. Be prepared to clean your own table to find a spot to sit. Not a bad place to Flop but not for 120+ a night.

Spotless rooms, very large. Plenty of space for a family, though this time it was just the two of us. Afternoon cookies in lobby were a great touch. Location was good, close enough to downtown without downtown prices. We booked through Hotwire and got a great price. I probably wouldn't pay full price for the room, but if you can get a deal it's an excellent hotel!

Stayed at Clarion while bringing a child to UW - Madison. Since we knew we wouldn't be spending much time at hotel, we chose the Clarion based in part on great rate (had previously stayed at downtown Madison Concourse and Governor's Club and felt that room was small and pricey for the time we spent there). Clarion is about 7 minute drive from campus. Large one bedroom "suite" (all one big room) had queen bed (very comfortable), sleep sofa, one tv, desk, small kitchen with refrigerator and microwave but few dishes or silverware, vanity with sink and chair, decent size bathroom. More than enough space for 2 adults and teenager. Complimentary breakfast more than adequate: eggs, potatoes, make your own waffles, bananas, yogurt, mini-muffins, mini-bagels, cereal, instant oatmeal, coffee and juices. No restaurant on premises and nothing within a few blocks (but downtown Madison is very close). Staff was very nice and easily accomodated a request for very late checkout due to 6:00 pm plane flight. Definitely felt like a "budget" option in terms of decor compared to Homewood Suites we had just come from in Chicago (but that was 2 1/2 times the price)! Best indication we felt we were getting our money's worth: we booked it again for parents weekend!

8 women for State Tennis stayed here 9-11Aug07. We had 3 rooms. The rooms were a nice size and clean, very pleasant white comforters and pillows, hot breakfast with scrambled eggs and waffles was a plus, with good working AC and nice quiet room. Hotel was easy to find and the parking is free.
We had asked for all rooms on one floor; we did not get that, but for the most part, we were happy with our accommodations.

We stayed here March 5-14, 2006, for the birth of our first grandchild. After researching various web sites for a good deal, we called the Clarion direct, and they offered the information that if the baby was to be born in certain hospitals, which was the case, they could give us a special low rate! They even got us the reservation for the whole period even though they were supposed to be booked for the weekend. Throughout our stay, the staff was unfailingly helpful and pleasant.
The room price includes a hot breakfast buffet, happy hour with free wine & beer six afternoons a week, excercise facility, indoor pool, and free internet access from the Business Center.
