“Would return”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

Hotel staff friendly and efficient. Room was quite large, appreciate the mini-fridge. Breakfast was the standard fare. Hotel decor in need of an update, but is was all very clean. Very quiet, although I don't think the hotel was anywhere near full.

... this is the place to bypass and keep going to the Holiday Inn Express. Well, that is if you mind trying to sleep with noise (highway traffic and bathroom fan vying for loudest intrusion award), dirty conditions (a "petrified", half-eaten McDonald's hamburger was behind the dresser), stepping into the shower (and realizing there is no shower head). Thought there might be a possibility of escaping the highway noise by switching sides of the hotel, but that move proved to be fruitless. I will admit the complimentary breakfast is decent, but I don't feel that makes up for the poor conditions. Hotel definitely needs a make-over.

I was a little disappointed in the water temperature and noisy highway/parking lot next door. Shower water temp went from warm to scalding hot (when turned on all the way). It did not stay consistent throughout the duration of the shower. Of course after turning it down when it was too hot, got to a comfortable spot only to have it go cold. It is just off a busy highway and located next to a bowling alley. Both of which can have a lot of noise. They do have the great beds/comfy comforter, breakfast etc. Also had complimentary massages one of the nights. Great restaurant next door.

We have stayed at Country Inn & Suites before but this time we booked a family suite. It has a small bump out from the regular room with 2 twin beds, a nightstand and TV. It was perfect for our family because our kids don't like to sleep in bed together. We visited the pool which had a huge hot tub, a kids area with slide and sprinklers and a larger pool with basketball nets. We had an issue with one of the tv's in our room and were quickly transferred to another suite. Breakfast had a wide range of options - waffles, eggs, cereal, oatmeal, bagels & fresh fruit. The staff was lovely and accommodating. The hotel was decorated for Christmas and seemed homey (in a good way). There was road noise you could hear from the room (next to a highway). Only thing I could think of to make the room nicer would have been a comfy sitting area - there was a table and chairs but to watch a movie we all had to climb into bed together.

Room Tip: Try a family suite if you are traveling with kids

We booked this hotel through Priceline for a good price considering it was a Badger football game weekend. We arrived late Friday night. Our room was ready for us, but the cookie jar was empty! The lobby was very warm and inviting. Our room was clean, but felt a bit tired. The bed was very comfortable, and my wife and I always appreciate the hotels that place a sheet, the blanket, and another sheet on top. We used the pool and hot tub area in the morning. The hot tub is huge, and has a nice waterfall feature. There is a larger pool with two basketball hoops, and another smaller kid's pool with a waterslide. The complimentary breakfast isn't just your basic muffin and cereal bar. They have hot oatmeal, waffles, sausage, a variety of fruits, juices, coffee, and teas. Very impressed by the breakfast. Other hotels would charge $10 a person for this. Very family friendly hotel. This hotel is overall a good value for what we were looking for. If you are willing to drive 10-15 minutes to Camp Randall or the University to save a few bucks, this is the hotel for you!

Last weekend, we had a wonderful experience at the Country Inn & Suites in Fitchburg, WI. Our son was married on a farm nearby, and we chose this hotel to be "Base Central" for all the out-of-town guests. As we are from St Paul, and the bride's family is from Chicago, nearly all the guests were out-of-town. The hotel manager Carol Radtke was fabulous from the start. We met in February, and she remained in contact and available for help right up until the very end. She made available a block of rooms to meet our needs. She offered advice about local venues and bakers. She even provided a meeting room for the wedding party to hash out the final details. The hotel had a great hot breakfast every day and a very kid-friendly pool ( with a slide and water falls), and helpful front desk staff. As chance would have it, the hotel was directly next door to The Ten Pin Bowling Alley. When I shared with Carol that I was desperate for a place to have a Welcoming Reception instead of a regular Rehearsal Dinner, she suggested the bowling alley, and it worked out so well. My only regret is we aren't local, and may never need the services at C I & S again. But I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a wonderful stay. Thanks again, Carol!

Room Tip: We chose a family room; a room with a king bed, and adjoining room with two twin beds. Nice choice...

We spent three nights here. The room was clean and well furnished. The included breakfast was quite nice. Staff were friendly. If you are a light sleeper and staying over a summer weekend, you may wish to request the side that does not overlook Quivey's Grove Banquet area, where weddings and music sometimes go quite late and the noise from which can permeate rooms on that side.
