The room was reasonably modern, well maintained, and clean for lodging of this price range, as well as plenty of amenities in the room and the hotel itself. The room was quite hot for sleeping, at first, which considering how cold it was outside initially was very nice but this wasn’t sufficiently controllable for comfortable sleeping Thankfully, it eventually cooled off and the visit was overall very relaxing and satisfying. The quality of the room was better than the quality appeared from outside the hotel.

Clean and comfortable.

The property is definitely an older property and in need of maintenance. The bed was comfortable and the water very hot for our showers though. It worked for us for the night but many people would not be willing to stay here.

Low price. Nice clean room

The hotel was located on a hilltop overlooking part of the city. Very nice view

The staff was gracious, the facilities were decently maintained for a budget hotel but cleanliness could improve (staffing is still often tough with COVID). There are many options for dining in the area and a large menu available for ordering in, which is somewhat unusual at a budget hotel. They also have rooms that can accommodate pets, but those are separated from the other rooms.

It's actually okay for the price, but a couple annoying things were but I could not run the fan on the air conditioner at the same time as the heater. The heater was a baseboard heat which took a good bit of time to beat the room, but the main problem was lack of explanation that those had to work separately. Breakfast was decent or econo Lodge, coffee was terrible. They should just change their brand.

The room was shabby. Damaged walls, missing light fixtures, bumpy parking lot. Piles of old furniture and toilets in the parking lot. No elevator. Minimal breakfast.

The staff were nice and helpful. The breakfast was better than expected for the hotel rating. The building could be fixed up, new carpet, more carpet by the main entry, side entry key access fixed, heater/AC in room only sometimes worked, paint peeling, some stains on walls, really old rugs near entry and front desk. Fixing these minor updates could really make this hotel excellent for the price. Also, the whole building lost power during an ice storm and there was no backup generator.

Fantastic value- will visit again! Check-in was swift, breakfast was good and parking was easy.

Good for price, welcoming for my dog. Needs updating but what can you expect for a budget hotel

I came in for a concert and stayed a night at the Econo Lodge. This is a great hotel to stay in for overnight, out of town visits. The breakfast offerings were great! I would stay here again!

Inexpensive, so I guess you get what you pay for. The bed was OK but the room was very foul-smelling.

Clean rooms. Close to shopping. Friendly staff.

I have stayed at the Econo Lodge several times, usually for home football games. The front desk staff is always friendly and it's a quick process to check-in. This most recent trip it seems that they have started to make a few updates. The flooring in the entrance of the room and bathroom looks new. The bathroom looks completely new with large clean tiles. We were told the beds and TVs are new as well and it was a very comfortable bed to sleep in! My only complaint was regulating the temperature but it's late fall in Wisconsin so temperature is always changing. I think this is the best hotel for the price in Madison.

The staffs are nice. But the room is a bit outdated and bed could use of upgrade. There was bar soup , shampoo but what happened to conditioner?

If you like sleeping on terrible beds stay here. If you want somebody elses pubes on the toilet when you get here, stay here. If you want to wake up to hookers leaving the building at 3:45 stay here. If you want to stay in a room that smells like a gallon of industrial cleanser was used each day, stay here. All in all not bad place!
