I stayed at InnTowner for a short business trip. At the time there was some kind of sport event taking place at the university, and some of the teams were staying there. This meant that the Hotel overall was quite noisy, mainly in the corridors, but it was fine in the rooms.
The rooms are not luxurious, but are very spacious. The only thing to regret about the rooms is the lowsy internet connection. It had a low bandwidth and failed often. To make up for that I had to spend more time at the indoor swimming pool. There was also a whirlpool and some sports equipment.

Room Tip: The best rooms are near the pool.

Rooms were below average for the price compared to what is available in other motels/hotels. Internet was advertised as high speed but was not even available most of the time and when it was available it was extremely slow. The only redeeming features were location and a helpful/friendly staff.

Room Tip: Don't book this hotel

Been staying there since the early 1990's. Whenever I am in that time zone, I try to get to Madison for the following, and always stay at the Best Western Inntowner.
Clothes shopping at Suzen Sez across the street, several good restaurants a brief walk away,
fantastic bookstore nearby ("Booked for Murder). Location close to everything, 1 mile from U. Wisconsin stadium.

The courtesy van is crucial - and so handy for transportation pickups, whether it be bus station or airport. Give notice, and tip your drivers! They are full of helpful information.
NIce pool and hot tub. Restaurant and small friendly bar. Can't imagine staying anywhere else.

I would specifically like to mention Ms. Roberta Eichelberg, Director of Sales and Marketing - she treated me like a queen and even let me repack my suitcase in her office after I had checked out!

I found this hotel to be convenient for our needs, with easy and quick access to the University and surrounding area. It was nice and quite during our stay, but it wasn't football season or graduation! The front desk staff was delightful and efficient, the lobby was lovely, and we enjoyed our breakfast in the restaurant. The rooms were clean, although somewhat small (narrow) and the beds comfortable. Bathroom clean, and plenty of towels.
My son will be attending UW-Madison starting this fall, and this will remain our first choice for hotels for anything Badger related - close enough to the university, and hopefully far enough away from the noise (we'll see!)

Stayed here for two nights while interviewing at the University. Location is not great. Can't walk to either campus or downtown. The room has all your basic accommodations and is comfortable. Breakfast downstairs is nice. Wireless internet did not really work. Wired internet was fine.

Wonderful service from the housekeeping manager Eva Velasco and her staff. They were anxious to accomodate us and care for our every need. We enjoyed a clean, spacious room with fresh linens changed daily. We requested towels and shampoo, which were swiftly brought to our room. Breakfast was top notch, the waitress was very courteous, and the pool facility was luxorious.
