I recently spent three nights at this hotel. The cons far outweigh this pros, and I could not recommend this hotel. I've stayed at the Cambria and Holiday Inn about a mile away and they are much better.
~Freezing cold lobby including the bar area. I know it is winter but they should be prepared for a Wisconsin winter.
~Freezing cold room - the heat was turned up to 90 and it was barely tolerable. Bring warm jammies!
(When I wrote a note for the maid that the room was cold, she just turned the heat up to 90. Didn't really help.)
~Reports of spiders in other rooms from travelling companions
~Flaking paint on the bathroom ceiling
~Mystery "water" (I can only hope it was just water) from the bathroom ceiling one night in the area of the flaking paint.
~Staff is friendly - this is the only thing that kept me from rating this hotel as terrible.
You can do better for lodging on the east side of Madison. Definitely.
