We stayed in this motel on our way to Apostel Island in June
The attendant behind the counter was very freindly - but due to an over whelming number of people that had all arrived at the same time the check in was a bit slow ( understandly so )
The room was clean - nice beds - and extra pillows on each beds -

There was not enough towels in the room for 4 guest but was quickly remedy by a call to the front desk - more towels were brought to the room immediately

The breakfast bar was great - plenty of all food items - the milk was ice cold - the eating area was attended and kept clean by staff - food was replenished as needed -
the hotel was quiet - the motel was booked by a girls soocer leauge - we never heard the first sound - great motel

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while attending a convention in Madison. We chose this hotel based on some positive online reviews and photos of the property which gave us the impression that it was a very new hotel. While the staff was friendly, we did have some serious issues with this place. First off, we reserved a non-smoking room. Instead, the room that was assigned to us smelled of musty cigarette smoke. Moreover, there was what appeared to be dried semen stains on the sofa. Gross! The hallways were also musty smelling and the shower head in the bathroom was filthy with peeling paint. Our room never got cleaned either. The gym was sub par with only one treadmill, a weight system and a broken stairstep. The pool is small and shallow. The hot tub was okay. The hotel is located at the end of a long, winding and secluded service road off of the interstate (on a map it looked more convenient). On a positive note, the complimentary breakfast buffet was not bad. You can make your own waffles and they include scrambled eggs and sausage. There is also free wireless Internet. However, there were just too many negatives to make us want to come back. Definitely not an extended stay hotel. C-

The property is located off the Interstate and relatively near Madison. The access to the hotel is (at least in winter) best described as a 1 mile motocross course meandering through cow pastures to return to a point near your exit point from the interstate. There are no restaurants in proximity. The property is older but reasonably kept. Management is inexperienced, and incapable of providing guests with any secure feeling. We were harassed by guest to guest phone calls and only by phoning 911 was the situation addressed. The police stated that this occurence was not unusual....

The hotel was nice. The staff was great. But the hotel location leaves a lot to be desired. If you are in to motorcycles, there is a large Harley dealer right next door. Highway noise could be a problem.

The morning staff was great. Despite my problems with [--](I will never ever use [--]again.), the morning staff was understanding and very good to deal with.

We've stayed here a couple of times while traveling on I-90, and been satisfied each time. Rooms are decent, breakfast, while simple, gets us going in the morning, there's a small pool, and free internet access.

The only issue is the location. While it's right off I-90 and hwy 12, there's really nothing of interest anywhere around. It is a simple 20 minute drive to downtown and the campus via hwy 12, or a 10 minute drive on I-90 west to a big shopping area. For us it works out great, as we usually drive downtown to eat dinner, then drive back to sleep, and we're right on I-9o ready to go the next morning. But for others, well, depends on what you want to do.
