Been to Madison 50+ times but this was first time I opted to stay overnight at union south. Booked online (their site) using my UW Madison union membership card and received confirmation (with a confirm #) for $149/night. When we checked in, we were told the rate was $179. While the student employee was friendly and helpful, the on-duty manager...

wishotel, Front Office Manager at Wisconsin Union Hotel, responded to this review

Greetings— I apologize for any miscommunication that occurred at your check-in. You did book at the Union member rate online and you are correct that you did indicate 4 people would be in the rooms. I do believe my co-worker was simply trying to figure out why the website was making such an error. In the future, we will deal...

The hotel is nice, but we went to use the Keurig and the inside was full of mold. We took the coffee maker down to the front desk, they did not have access to housekeeping or any replacements. Told us they'd make note and kept it. Didn't have the ability to make coffee or tea. I mentioned it to the...

I had the opportunity to stay at the Wisconsin Union South for a Rotary District Conference.

The hotel is centrally located, clean and people are very nice. Couldn't ask for more. We were here for accepted students session and the tour started at the hotel. On top of things for home football games this is where a lot of celebrating takes place and is right near Camp Randall

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the hotel, while visiting our graduate student son at the university. Perfect location; near all University buildings (particularly the Chem building), student housing/apartments in the area, many good neighborhood restaurants within walking distance. Large clean room, comfortable bed, shower was hot!. Fridge in the room, with flat screen TV. The student union...

Nice, clean, simple accommodations. Not a luxurious room or bathroom. Booked a Jr. Suite for me, my husband and daughter. Pull out sofa bed in the living area which also had a nice sized kitchen (which we never used), a king bed in the bedroom and 1 bathroom off the living area. Bathroom was very basic, shower had dispensers for...

You are right in the middle of the action for a football Saturday. The Badger Bash is a cool event and the walk to and from the stadium is very easy. It also includes free parking which is great on game day.

The hotel isn't fancy and doesn't have many amenities--no valet, bellman, etc--but it is modern, clean, and well-appointed. It looks exactly as pictured. It's right above the student union and there are several food choices, including a yummy ice cream place and Peets Coffee.

We stayed here while touring U of Wisconsin. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The location right on campus can't be beat. The hotel is adjacent to the student center and guests can access the bowling alley, pool tables in basement, restaurant on first floor plus Pete's coffee. The hotel is quiet, a little bit basic but perfect for...
