I have stayed here a couple of times in the last year and my experience has always been a great one. It has close axcess to freeway so whether your going to downtown Madison to take on the sites or a trip to Wisconsin Dells you are not to far away. The staff is friendly and very helpful in making sure that your stay is a pleasent one. From the clean rooms to the hardy breakfast this one is always on my list.

Room Tip: Call ahead prices change daily. Get a room on the third floor on back side of hotel they tend to be quieter.

Selected this hotel based on experience at other HI Express properties. While on a road trip with the family We decided to spend the night here. Room was clean and large enough for 2 adults and 2 kids.
Its close to I-94, but far enough away from the freeway for a quiet stay.

Breakfast was very nice with hot cinnamon rolls and the usual assortment of eggs, meat, cereal and juice.

As expected this hotel lived up to the HI Express brand standards and met my expectations.I would definitely stay here again. The cheese and wine shop directly across the street from the hotel is definitely worth checking out while you are in the area.

We are very happy with this chain and will definitely stay at Holiday Inn Express again. Very handy location off the the freeway and restaurants nearby. Free cookies at the front desk and a nice breakfast complete with a pancake maker machine. I'd never seen one of those before and so had to try it. Very good and fun to use. Just hit the button and it makes the pancake and put your plate there for it to flop onto!

We stopped on our way through because it was right off the highway next to gas stations and fast food. Quality beds and a great breakfast. The front desk was super friendly and offered us water as we checked I'm. Would stay there again. Reasonable rates too at $108.
