A great, clean hotel with extremely accommodating staff. I've stayed there a couple times, once with a friend on a girl's trip and once alone for a weekend. Both trips were enjoyable and rooms were very comfortable. Highly recommend!

Rooms are nice, it's a quaint very small motel. Bummer is no room service, no vending machines and everything closes everywhere on Sunday at 830!!! So on that note bring a cooler because there is no refrigerator for your drinks or snacks or you'll be starving like we are right now!! No delivery from anywhere!!! Its around $200 a night......

Lovely small hotel. We had a very comfortable room. Bed was quite comfy. Only thing that stood out was the corners of the tile floor which needed a serious scrubbing. Overall a lovely comfortable place to stay. We stayed on the first floor with view of the back. It was much quieter. We would stay there again.

Room was spacious and well decorated. Enjoyed having our own HVAC system. Sheets were crisp and clean. Staff was courteous and accommodating. Wifi worked well. Conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. Only negative was a small TV and the rain shower head. Breakfast of quiche and fruit was good.

This hotel will amaze you. I will put the accommodations at the James Madison Inn up against any hotel in this price range. Huge rooms with impeccable decor. Great service. Complimentary breakfast (hot and cold items). This is where you want to stay if you are visiting Madison, going up to a Georgia football game, touring the "lake area," etc.... More

From my booking, through my arrival and check in, into breakfast, and finishing with my departure, both the physical structure / decor as well as the service were outstanding and impeccable. Thank you for an unexpectedly amazing detour through your beautiful town!!!

When I first checked into the James Madison, I thought I was stepping back in time into a wonderful historic southern mansion due to the detail taken by the builders to recreate the craftsmanship of the early 1900's. The room was as big as suites are in other B&Bs and very nicely laid out having a separate sitting area (with... More
