“Very Good Basic Hotel at a low Price on Priceline”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We found this hotel on Priceline. It is listed as Downtown/Capital Area but is not Downtown or next to the Capital so be careful when purchasing is you want to be next to the Capital. The hotel is a few miles outside of the Capital area and an easy drive up John Nolan Drive. The rooms were large and quiet. The Breakfeast was very good. The snacks were not the best but the beer was free so we did not mind.

Room Tip: While the hotel is often listed as next to the Capital is is not. It is a few miles away.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our hotel. We appreciate hearing from our online booking guests and the feedback they provide.
It is true that the booking sites list our property as a Downtown Area Hotel. We are located 2 miles from the downtown Madison area, but you are correct, we are not located next to the Capital. In looking at the map describing the area of our hotel, we are located in the lower part of the Downtown Area section. I hope that this helps clarify our location.
Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. I am pleased that in spite of the misunderstanding regarding the location, you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you again,

We stayed for a weekend at the Clarion and it was wonderful. The continental breakfast was to die for. The attendants serving the breakfast were friendly and very accomodating. When we needed items for our room, the attendants were right there to help us and give us what we needed including a plunger!! They even offered to do it for us. The room was clean and stocked to the fullest. When we stay in Madison again, we will definately stay there.

We stayed here for a concert we went to. This place was great!! Customer service was outstanding! They had a gift bag with chips and soda in the room when we got back after the concert. Breakfast was really good with a big choice of foods. I didn't have time to go in the pool but it looked nice.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our hotel. I am pleased that you were able to take advantage of our concert package for events at the Allient Energy Center and in the Madison area. It is fun to come back to your room to find treats after an event. Our staff enjoys providing that amenity to our guests!
Thank you again for your kind words. We hope that you will return again!

We had two rooms and both were huge. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were good sized. You won't get wowed by frills but if you want a nice place to sleep with some space this is tough to beat.

Only two miles from campus and really easy to get to.

The outside of the building is very plain, a tall building, nothing special. Once you are in the room, it is larger than your average hotel room as the name indicates, suites. The room was very clean. Service was wonderful. If I had a complaint it would be the toiletries they provide are cheap. The shampoo had a funky smell. The location is walking distance to the Alliance Center which was great. The breakfast was the normal. I will say the eggs did not taste like the powder eggs. Every afternoon they had fresh chocolate chip cookies. Evening snacks and beverages were provided. The front desk staff were always very friendly. I would stay here again.

Although there are no restaurants in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, the front desk was more than willing to provide suggestions, maps and directions to local eateries. I had a suite that was wonderful! The mini-kitchen afforded the opportunity for me to re-heat my leftover lunch for a snack during the evening. Will scope out the complimentary breakfast buffet tomorrow.

Room Tip: ask for suite if available. Lots of room to work, relax and sleep!

A very nice, clean, friendly hotel. We arrived late in the day as part of a group of 10 that had arrived earlier. The staff happily worked with our group so that we could all have rooms on the same floor. Considering we were all staying for just two nights, it was really nice to have an extra effort made on our behalf. Our room was huge and comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the 'cocktail hour' on Saturday night. Not an event where the room had much 'ambiance', but it gave us a chance to connect with our friends and unwind after a full day of travel. The breakfast was decent and filling, but nothing of note. I would like to give an Excellent mark in regards to the extra effort of the staff working the shuttle service. Because the hotel is not located close to State Street or the downtown area, either driving or shuttle is your means of getting to and from. As long as you worked with them for setting up times - they were VERY helpful in getting you to, and picking you up from, the downtown area. Also, they were like tour guides in dishing out local information. Very fun. Would stay there again.
