My son and I were in town for a campus visit of UW - Madison. This was about the cheapest place we could find. It was homecoming weekend which might have affected prices. Hotel is off the highway by itself like it was going to be developed 40 years ago but the area never was. Definitely an older hotel that... More

I booked thru Priceline and started to regret my reservation before I arrived. It's hard to find, inconvenient to Madison and on an unwelcoming gravel road. The place looks dumpy from the outside and is equally dumpy inside. The room's flimsy wooden doors gave me an uneasy feeling that they could easily be kicked in. Noise throughout the night in...

I booked this hotel on booking.com. YES the price was cheap and that was the first mistake. Looking at the pictures, they didn't really show the rooms, second mistake. Driving up to the Hotel was the third mistake. We should have turned around then. The hotel looked run down and something out of a horror movie. We decided to try... More

We only paid $15 for this room after using coupons, and it was well worth it. The hotel is out dated but well kept up. The breakfast unbelievable, omlet,pancake,and crepe bar Yummy!!! All in all great room,service and price.

I chose this hotel based on the reviews, and it turned out exactly like so many have described. Driving up, this hotel is very isolated, and looks very old & run down. The hallway (even in the non-smoking wing) smells strongly of smoke, all of which added up to make us wonder if we hadn't made a huge mistake in... More

Nice clean hote with friendly staff but....small rooms, main hallway is tiled so sound is amplified, breakfast room is very small and crowded. We woke up every few hours due to people talking down by the lobby due to the concrete walls and tile floor of the hall. That was the most annoying thing. We could also hear the people... More

This was the perfect place to rest our heads each night while visiting Madison and the surrounding area. It was quiet, clean and easy to get to. It had a modest pool that I swam in. The rooms appeared to have been very newly remodeled. A real, free breakfast with omelets was a nice surprise too. So if you are... More

We stayed one night there. We were not expecting anything great, just a decent place to stay. The price was alright, a bit higher than I would have liked to pay. The location is off the highway. At night the access road looked not too great. But as we entered, the staff was very cordial. Room was clean. Had a... More
