Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Madison
Ranked #47 of 63 Hotels in Madison
Reviewed 7 November 2005

We got this room from priceline at $40 per night. We were flying out to Orlando the next morning and they allowed us to use their park n fly. We had planned on using the airport parking at $5 per day. We saved $40 plus got a great deal on the room. Staff was very helpful and room was clean and spacious. Pool was ok quite large and our overall stay was excellent.

Stayed: June 2005

We have stayed at this hotel several times. The hotel welcomes pets for a $10 charge. There is lots of room to walk your dog in back of the hotel. The rooms have been clean and the front desk staff is always friendly. This trip we had our dog and a kitten with us. They actually gave us a "Kitty Bag" with treats, a couple toys, a clean-up bag and a cute sign for the door saying "Beware of Cat!". I would definitely recommend this hotel. The restaurant has been good but the bar hours vary depending on the amount of business and the decision of the bartender. We would definitely stay there again!

I thought the hotel was average. Clean but not luxurious. Pool was nice, but for $119/night you can drive 40 minutes to Wisconsin Dells and stay in a hotel with a waterpark for the same price. If you need to get into downtown Madison, this is a great location. Proximity to mall makes for plenty of restaurant options as well.

Got a great price (under $40 a night) at Priceline. The hotel was worth it. The neighborhood wasn't the greatest, but the rooms were pretty clean and the game room, pool, and workout area were pretty nice. The equipment in the workout area was updated, however their weights only consisted of a few free weights and a bench. The pool was big and deep...nice feature. Front desk staff was pretty disappointing, other staff were nice.

My stay here was awesome. The front desk staff was friendly, quick, and helped me with my needs, before i knew i had them. The restaurant staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. If you have the chance request Chris as your server as he gave us the best service we have ever recieved. Our room was generously sized, and clean way beyond my expectations. The only regretable part of the stay was the time i spent trying to get into my room due to faulty keys, but i quickly recieved new ones.

Nicely furnished large room. Average to above average for a Holiday Inn. Friendly front desk staff. Used Exit Guide coupon and got the room for $49. Only problem was that the room door didn't seal well and let in a lot of corridor noise such as normal conversations of people walking down the hall. Plus we were near a fire door, which made loud noise every time it closed. Maybe that's the price to pay for getting the room with a discount coupon.

We stayed here and took advantage of the Park and Fly rate. It is a nice, clean hotel and the staff was excellent. Our room was spacious and it had a large bathroom too. The pool courtyard is nice with a hot tub (the jets were only working 50% during our stay). Be sure to bring floatation devices for small children though as the shallow end is about 3 ft. They have a courtesy airport shuttle which was very conveneint both times. The hotel is on a main road with shopping and restaurants close by. I would stay at this property again.
