We stayed at this hotel for one night after a wedding. Very convenient location just off Hwy I-94. My kids loved the "kids suite" which was a very large room with a king size bed for us and bunk beds and a TV in a separate alcove for them. Bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Did not eat breakfast or use the pool due to time constraints.

Thank you very much for choosing our hotel for your recent visit. We are so happy to learn that you enjoyed our "Kids Suite". These rooms were designed with the family in mind and as you mentioned allow for separate areas set-up for the kids, including the bunk beds, and a clean, comfortable area for the parents. We hope that you will choose our hotel again if your travels bring you to the Madison area again in the future and maybe even try our complimentary full-hot breakfast and pool next time as well.

This was a stop-over on our way from Chicago to Minneapolis. It was an average place, nothing really outstanding to speak of but nothing to complain about either. Room was clean and tidy. Breakfast in the morning was fine. No complaints, booked the room in advance (non- refundable) and got it for less than $100. For that price, the place was pretty good but overall just an average HI Exp.

Michael, Michael, Michael! Thank you so very much for your most helpful service on our way through WI. We were lost. Saw your hotel and being very tired and cranky, decided to stop for the night. We were greeted by Michael who had a big smile for us. He was very helpful in directions as to where we were and as to where we needed to be the next day. He got us quickly set up with a room and a feeling that we picked the right place to get lost. We slept well and were off the next day with directions that did not fail. THANK YOU TO Michael for your kindness and patience.

We stay there every now and again if the Dells is full,its 30miles but saves a little money.Got checked in by a tattooed hippy in her street clothes and breakfast lady was proud of her chest tattoo too,big city living i guess. It was $130 but only worth that if you go to the Dells where it can top $200. Rooms were ok,quiet but can smell like manure from the neighboring farms.

Thank you for the wonderful stay at your hotel. I wanted to give a shout out to your night auditor who went the extra mile and left the pool open for my kids to swim a little bit longer, I do believe his name is Michael. Very clean rooms, and a great breakfast! If we are back in the area I will definitely stay here again!

Evening of June 25, 2013: Clean motel, nice amenities, and good customer service provided by the staff. The complimentary breakfast was more extensive than those typically provided by other motels. Added bonus: the Ehlenbach Cheese Chalet across the street - worth a visit (many different Wisconsin food items).

This was a one week business stay. I would classify this Hotel as an average Holiday Inn Express. No problems, but nothing spectacular either.

The Hotel is situated about ¼ mile from the Interstate, with convenience stores, and a few small restaurants nears by. It’s more or less a truck stop area.

The rooms are medium size with microwave & fridge, Large Flat screen. The channel guide shows 98 channels, but a lot of them have no signal. The work area leaves a lot to be desired. A small table in the corner with a semi comfortable chair, and a single electrical outlet a couple of feet away. The microwave & fridge are in a tall cabinet that totally blocks your view of the TV. You need to be in the bed to see the TV. AC / Heat is quiet and effective, and the free internet connection is reliable.

The bed was clean and comfortable, and I got a good nights sleep. The room was also quiet.

Small bathroom with the sink in the room. Shower had good water pressure and hot water, but the tub was very slippery.

The free breakfast was good, with hot & cold items, and it was on time every morning.

I’ll return on my next trip.
