If you are visiting the University of Wisconsin and looking for a place to stay, look no further than the Lowell Center. The rates are so reasonable, the staff was so friendly, and the location is fantastic. You'll get a great breakfast, a clean and inviting pool, and very comfortable rooms. Mine had a view of the Capitol that was beautiful. I had a great stay.

I was at a conference at UW last week and stayed at the Lowell. I loved the convenient location on campus and just steps from the lake. My room was tidy and clean. It was on the smallish side, and was most definitely a dorm room in its former life, but the bed was comfie, and the bathroom was fine. I liked that it was very quiet. I did not get noise from other rooms or outside. I liked having a fridge in the room for snacks and whatnot. The hotel offers a complementary breakfast with a nice selection of foods - even some cooked to order offerings. The lobby was huge and a nice place to sit and watch the world go by. I loved that it was steps from the lakeside walk and from Memorial Union which is the most awesome student union I have ever visited on a college campus. I spent every evening taking a long walk along the lake and then sitting by the lake at the union enjoying a hand crafted scoop of ice cream from the UW dairy. There were also plenty of adult beverages being sold and enjoyed. There was live music in the band shell every night I was in town. I would definitely stay in the Lowell for my next campus visit. The location and friendly staff make it a very pleasant place to stay!

Room tip: If you care about a lake view, I would request that when you make the reservation.

Great campus location with quick walk to State street. Rooms are good and modern and breakfast is a good way to start the day. Kerug in the room, my room was shower only - which works for me. I have a view of a roof - but I was not there for the view. Overall, good stay and handy location for the Memorial Union, State street and only a $15 lyft ride from the airport. I would stay again

My wife and I travel to Madison on the University's dime several times a year. This time we were put up at the Lowell Center. Yes, the rooms are reminiscent of a dorm room. Our room was perfect for one person and adequate for two. The location is perfect, close to State Street and the University. The room was warm when we checked in. Due to some reviews referring to the lack of climate controls, I was surprised to find a thermostat. Set it to 70 degrees and went out for supper. The room was a perfect temperature when we returned. The room (601) was quiet; and the bed was most comfortable. The room included a coffee maker, an ironing board and a refrigerator. Breakfast is served on the lowest floor; and it was really good. There was a young lady who cooked your eggs how you want them. There was fresh fruit and a waffle station, and a couple of juice choices. My wife said the coffee was good; and they had a great assortment of tea. For once the tea drinkers get their due! All in all a very nice breakfast set up.
We were lucky enough to score a spot in their limited parking lot right behind the hotel. I didn't use the pool or the gym; but the pool and the sauna looked very nice.
Just two suggestions...They might want to find another vender for their shampoos and body lotion. They were so full of perfume scent that it stuck with you for days. They were so strong smelling, I would call it a stench. Ditch the gas station toilet paper...'nuf said.
Modestly priced, clean, great location, good breakfast, comfortable room, and screaming fast WiFi. Not to mention a very friendly and helpful staff, made our stay a genuine pleasure. Definitely, we would gladly stay here again.
