Holiday Inn Express Deforest (Madison Area)
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in DeForest
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 December 2011

We chose this Holiday Inn Express for its location, price and convenience to the interstate. We booked the KidSuite, since we were traveling with our children (9 years and 14 years). The room was at the end of the hallway on the first floor. This made for easy loading and unloading of the car. The layout was very nice: a king-size bed for the adults and a set of bunkbeds for the kids. The bunk bed area had its own chair, lights and television. The kids loved not having to share a bed. The room also included a microwave and a refrigerator.

The hotel is well-maintained and quite clean. There was free wi-fi, an indoor pool and workout room. Despite being close to the interstate, it was quiet inside the room.

The breakfast is comparable with other free breakfasts offered by hotels in this price range. One unique feature was a machine that made fresh pancakes. They were tasty and it was a nice change that they were not premade. Other items included cheese omelets, bacon, and hot cinnamon rolls.

I would recommend this hotel (and especially the KidSuite) to families traveling in this part of Wisconsin.

Room Tip: KidSuite is a great choice of families traveling with 2 children.

This Holiday Inn Express delivers on the promise of clean, comfortable rooms for a reasonable price - with continental breakfast included. Convenient location off the interstate with gas and other fast food options nearby, the rooms have free wi-fi, refrigerator and microwave. There is also an indoor pool and a computer available for guests as well.

I enjoyed staying at this hotel. I loved the breakfast that they have. I enjoyed the room with the fluffy towels and the nice sheets. It was also convenient having a microwave and fridge in the room.

My family and I recently stayed at this property on our way back home from a family Thanksgiving. The drive was long so we decided to stop and take a rest for the night. We typically always choose Holiday Inn Brand hotels because of our Priority Club status. The moment I walked in the door I was greated with a smile. The front desk staff was so friendly and helpful. Not only that but the rooms were very clean. The property looks like it just went through a remodel because it looks brand new. We enjoyed the pool, it gave the kids a place to burn all their energy. I would definetly stay there again.

I was traveling for work and stayed at this hotel. My room was fresh, clean and very spacious. The towels were scratchy, but every hotel I've been too has this. The bathroom & shower were very clean and roomy. The hotel has a nice looking pool, though I didn't get the chance to use it. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
Being a bit of a health nut, I'm always a little worried about hotel breakfasts. I was very surprised to see flavored yogurt, fruit, eggs, bagels and bread, a pancake station, juice and coffee. They also had omelets, sausage links and biscuits and gravy.
Overall, this was a great hotel for a great price. It was easy to find and I would gladly stay here again.

This definately is not an "upscale" location.....just an average hotel. The bedding was clean and comfortable. Floors could have used some work. Housekeeping could improve greatly. While we were there (Friday and Saturday), there were staff visitors --family perhaps, running in the halls and upstairs. They ran around on Saturday half the day, also. There seemed to be workers in and out. Did not feel real safe staying there. The Sunrise Restaurant served a really great Friday Fish Dinner and their staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If this is just a stop for a night and you want a comfortable bed, this place will do. Not much around to do!! Not much for breakfast if you don't want a lot of saturated fat and pork.
