While traveling on business in the U.S., I frequently stayed at this hotel. The Front Desk staff, Breakfast Room personnel and Cleaning services were one of the most pleasant I had experienced during my career. Everyone made me feel at home and "part of the family".

This will be one of the places I will miss in returement.

This hotel has had recent updates and is a nice option about 15 minutes north of Madison WI. It always seems to be at least $20 cheaper than hotels in town. Clean rooms and pool area. Only downside is not many dining options close to hotel. Easy access off Hwy 90 / 94.

We stayed here one night for a family ski trip in the area. It's a very clean and well kept hotel. The breakfast tastes good and has a great variety of items. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I know where I will stay the next time I am in the area.

Thank you cameron m for taking the time to review our hotel after your recent stay. I am pleased that you found our hotel the perfect respite while skiing in the area. Many people do not know the amount of quality winter activities that are available within a short drive from the Madison area. I have shared your comments with our entire staff who were very excited to hear of your positive experience with us. Thank you for your business and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to our hotel again in the future.

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.
