The hotel was clean, inviting, it has a large lobby area where we enjoyed a nice happy hour. Our room was also large, and beautiful. Clean, with comfortable beds.

Quiet place, close to traffic routes, where all other directions can be entered easily

Great breakfast; very clean and fast check-in. Thanks

Unexpected room with a view when we happened to e staying during the Dane county fair! Directly next door to th fairgrounds, enjoyed the fair lights from the nice size room. Breakfast was ok, biggest complaint was their rush to close down breakfast despite not refilling items like milk or cereal half hour+ before breakfast was scheduled to end. Overall a great value for what we paid though. Kids enjoyed the pool.

Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Rooms were perfectly standard, nothing to wow you about but not horrible. Although small TVs are positioned oddly in the room... it would seem to make more sense to me to you’d mount it to the wall (one less piece of crappy hotel room “art” is a good thing) rather than put it on a swivel and place it at an odd angle to the bed. Rooms were clean but the lobby areas are in the middle of a renovation. Bathroom had some weird piping noises and when you turned the shower on the whole shower shook, so I’m not sure how old the pipes are. Breakfast was surprisingly large (and mostly reheated/from a bag) but perfect for the price of included. I’ve stayed in a lot of places and you could do way worse.

Nice staff, rooms are very quiet, beds are firm, spacious rooms,

Front desk was nice. Room was clean. Close to downtown.

It was a great visit. Easy check in, room was just what we needed, bathroom was big which is great when you share it with a family a six. Pool was great--we had it to ourselves. Breakfast was great--lots of choices. Staff was super friendly.

This hotel is great especially if you are going to the Alliant Energy Center. There is a hallway that connects to the building which is wonderful when the weather is not so good. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The breakfast is good.

Good room. We stayed three days. Staff helpful and friendly.

The rooms were fine but they had multiple flies and dozens of ladybugs. Pretty gross. Staff was unresponsive when we tried to change our room.

Room needed updating which I believe they are in the process of doing. The carpet was dirty, new tub/shower but mirror in bathroom needed to be replaced. Make up on wall in bathroom and dusty. Toilet plugged up second night we were there. Now after all of the bad things the good was they offer a nice breakfast, snacks and drinks in the evening from 5-6:30, shuttle to restaurants at night. If you are attending an event at the Alliant Energy Center the hotel is connected so you can save the parking fee. Staff is very friendly.

We just needed a place to stay for one night after a long day of driving. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and quick. The rooms were nice and clean. We didn't use the kitchen area, but it was clean and would be convinent to have. Continental breakfast was included and pretty good! Overall it was a nice place to stay.

The room was fantastic. The amenities were great. But best of all was Cathy at the front desk who took care of our every need and was just wonderful. What a great hotel this is. Some in our family decided to stay right on State Street in Madison but were very jealous at how much better we had it.

I've stayed in many hotels and never stay below a 3 star. This hotel is definetly NOT a 3 star hotel. Had I paid less than $100.00 for my room I would have left and bought another room elsewhere. I paid 180.00 for one night and this hotel is a 2 star at best. That is ridiculous. The entire hotel is extremely dated. The doors had peeling paint, the walls were thin, and children threw tantrums right outside our door as my baby was trying to sleep. If you are looking for a 3 star hotel, please choose somewhere else.

We were surprised by the space in our room. Convenient access to downtown and beltway locations.

The hotel itself was fine, although we ended up booking during the the state wrestling meet. Great for those attending the meet, as it is a quick walk, but annoying for us. Lots of kids, and we were leaving ours at Grandma's house... Room was clean and staff was friendly.

Great hotel for the beer fest. walking distance. staff were very helpful.

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. I apologize for the breakfast staff if they closed breakfast early. This is not acceptable and will not occur again. We will discuss this with our staff. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
