I stayed at this Best Western several times in the month of November while visiting a critical UW Madison hospital patient. The hotel is literally 2 blocks (2stop lights) from the hospital, and they have shuttles, free of charge (I didnt use the shuttle but would suggest a tip). They have a fantastic breakfast, all you can eat buffet type with pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, juices, coffee, bagels, hot and cold cereals and much more. A nice sit down breakfast before heading back to the hospital. They offer a discount to hospital patients but you must call from the hospital or have the hospital book your room. They charge per person. My room was clean and spacious. They do have a small bar, but we never got to the hotel early enough from the hospital to use it, however we were able to buy a few beers to take to our room as they were closing. The bar and I think the pool/hot tub close at 10 which is a little too early in my opinion to use when spending the day at the hospital. Either way, the hotel is convenient with a wonderful breakfast. Unfortunately, the hotel doubles their price on weekends with a home Badger Game and you can not get the hospital discount during this. That was a bummer because the hospital is close and convenient, however I was forced to spend 2 nights at another hotel using a cab to go back and forth to the hospital (I didn't have a car and find Madison very difficult to drive in anyway, especially when always leaving the hospital in the dark while very tired). So, all in all, the hospital is great, just a few disappointments.
