We stayed at this hotel for the weekend while in Madison to attend the UW Badger football game. The hotel is a 10 minute cab ride from the campus/capitol. This makes is a good alternative for those who either want to save a few bucks or when the capitol hotels are booked up. There are a number of restaurant options within walking distance and couple bars as well.
This Super 8 was a little nicer than I expected it to be. The lobby/breakfast was modern, spacious and clean. The young gentlemen, Alan, that checked me in was very friendly and informative, despite the fact that he had just had a scary encounter with someone trying to pass counterfeit bills. He made me aware of the 10% discount available to hotel guests at the nearby Perkins and provided phone numbers for the local cab companies that we would need the next day.
The hotel has an elevator which was a welcome suprise with our room being on the 2nd floor. The room was pretty standard. Two queens beds, which were comfortable enough. Some of the rooms have the updated linens shown in pictures here, but this room did not have those yet. Water pressure in the shower was a little weak.
The television was a large flat screen. Many of the cable channels were not available and showing an error. The mini fridge worked great. The free in room wi-fi worked well and could be accessed without a password. I was pleased to see that more than one network was available to guests to avoid problems that can come when a hotel full of people are all trying to access the web through a single router.
Breakfast was a simple continental set up. There was a waffle making station, coffee, juice, toast, cereal, fruit, cinamon buns and hard boiled eggs. We did not use the pool or work out facilities.
