Disgusting filthy building. Staff was extremely friendly

The property had plenty of amenities, and the room was clean and comfortable. Waited nearly 20 minutes to check in, and I was the only person waiting on front desk staff to check the counter for guests... poor customer service in my opinion. The checkout staff also was sort of rude, didn't seem very knowledgeable about her job duty, which is unfortunate.

Rooms were small with uncomfortable beds. Dirt and dust everywhere. Room smelled musty. The one towel we had was stained. Gross!

Property was disgusting and dirty. Sheets had holes. Trash not empty from previous guests. Carpet was disgusting. Each room gets 1 towel???

MmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmIt was all oknice place. No

Large pool and hot tub. Game room with a microwave, pool tables, pinball machines and snack machines. Bar and grill. Good breakfast buffet.

Great freadly stuff, excellent pool and a hot tub! Very relaxing and laidback place

The staff guy for the continental breakfast is a hoot! He sang to us and was such a great positive person!

Just felt gross. The bathroom floor was dirty. The tub surround was moldy. Some of the lights did not work or would not stay on. The only reason I didn't rate it lower is that it didn't have bed bugs.

Nice location and pool size. No bathroom countertops

Pleasant check-in. Nice amenities. Wifi poor signal though. No microwave in room. Great breakfast!! Pool is huge.

Nice place, huge pool, wonderful breakfast with a singing man helping and talking to customers, very nice addition to their staff. More people should be so happy and up beat like him!

I called the hotel about shuttle before coming to Madison and was told they provide the service for 24 hours everyday. My flight arrived at midnight. I called the hotel for shuttle. They did not send a shuttle. Instead, they let me take a cab to hotel and paid. I was impressed.

It's a okay hotel. Breakfast is good though. Could have been a better stay

Good place for a quick overnight stay. Restaurant was suppose to be open until 8 but there was not anyone in there. The bar was open and you could order food from there. The food was great!
