“Country Inn met my expectations”
Reviewed 30 July 2008

Stayed 3 nights at the Country Inn in Fitchburg and overall the Country Inn met my expectations. The room was comfortable, all things worked well including air conditioning, refrigerator, TV, wireless network, water pressure, etc.

Breakfasts were good but kind of boring. The waffle maker worked, the breakfast wrap and sausage were ok and the coffee was ok. Nothing to write home about but fully adequate.

There is a small, quaint restaurant next door called Quincy's Grove or something like that not associated with the hotel. The reuben I had there was crummy and I only went back again the next night because a co-worker had recommended the restaurant and I was too tired to go anywhere else. This time I ordered the nightly special which was beer-battered fish and was excellent. The accompanying cole slaw was average. There was a nice assortment of local beers and wines.

There are more places less than a mile away and a super-Target about a mile away. It is also convenient to get to the U of WI arboretum. I was there on business and it was easy to get into Madison and Verona.

The staff was helpful. Though I did not use it, the pool and exercise room seemed clean and accessible.

Since I am returning for more work in the Madison area, I will be staying there again. In other words, I recommend this hotel.

Beautiful, Clean, Well Appointed Hotel. We arrived in Madison at this hotel for two nights for my sister's wedding right next door at Quivey's Grove. Check in was prompt and friendly, the rooms were ready early and the staff was helpful. We stayed in a family suite. Our room had a spacious King bed with dining area and then the kids had their own separate room. We really liked having a door to separate our beds. I only wish as large as the dining/living area was that a pull out sofa sleeper was included. One of our kids had to sleep in the King with us because the second room had only two twin beds. There's a lot of space, but it really only accommodates four people (we had five).

Our children enjoyed the pool a great deal. Hot tub was large and comfortable. Free hot breakfast provided every morning was better than adequate. They offer a terrific selection with our three picky children.

Overall it was a pleasant stay and we are considering a return visit just to enjoy the hotel and pools.

  • Liked — Breakfast and the elegant (glass) six panel door separating our bed from the kids' room
  • Disliked — Large comfortable suite; however it only accommodates four people. Second room shoud have two queens or a pull out sofa in living area.

Had a great stay at this hotel. Our room was large and the beds were very comfortable. Me, hubby, and 4 kids got a great night sleep. The kids loved the pool. There was a slide and a play area as well.

Service was great. Staff was friendly and accomodating. Breakfast room was not crowded at all (weekday in September) and good.

We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites in Fitchburg while attending a wedding nearby. The hotel sent a free shuttle to the airport to pick us up. Originally we were supposed to get picked up from the hotel by a friend to go to a pre-wedding party that evening, but our flight got in late, so our friend was already at the party and couldn't come back to pick us up. Amazingly, after dropping us off at the hotel, the hotel's shuttle driver agreed to wait 10 minutes while we changed out of our travel clothes, and then drove us to the party!

The hotel itself was nice too; they had a book exchange program which I took advantage of, and there was a fireplace in the lobby area which was comfy when hanging around waiting for friends. I'm not sure it was the cheapest place we could have stayed in Madison, but it was definitely clean, comfortable, and the staff couldn't have been nicer.

Stayed for one night. Clean and comfortable room. Easy access to highway. Spent a lovely part of the morning on the front patio having coffee in a rocking chair (except that it's also the smoking area). Breakfast room was crowded and only grabbed coffee and a muffin but selection looked good. Water area looked like great fun for the kids.

Newer hotel with easy access to Hwy 151 and Interstate. After driving hours in the car, my kids loved playing in the water play area and the huge hot tub was a bonus for my husband and I. The hotel had large rooms (and bathrooms), was very quiet and had very comfortable beds as well. Our room had a coffee maker, microwave and fridge, which I beleive is standard in all rooms. We made popcorn at night after swimming and got free hot chocolate and coffee before retiring in the evening. The staff was very friendly and we had a nice breakfast in the morning before checking out. And best of all, the price was very reasonable for a family of 4. We will be back again!
