“Average & clean hotel”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

Short cab drive to downtown and across the street from the Alliant Center. Has a decent pool, free breakfast and clean rooms. The rooms could use some updating though. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

While visiting this location for business, I asked where the best place to get a steak was. Vincent at the front desk indicated that there was a steak restaurant nearby with a rich history in the Madison area named Wonder Bar and Grill. The food was truly outstanding and the recommendation was top notch. Vincent and all of the front desk staff were wonderful. I really enjoyed the happy hour and relaxation along with the large hot tub near the pool.

Good location with downtown Madison just a few minutes away. I stayed here for a week for a business trip to the city but was not all that impressed. Rooms could use an updating, little things like excessive dust and a cracked trash can. Noticed ants on the bathroom floor on my 3 rd day and I had no food kept in my room.

Stayed here after a long day's drive. Front desk staff was helpful and well informed. Evening glass of wine and then cookies before bedtime made for two happy visitors. Also apppreciated the staff's recommendations for dinner. Comfy beds and hot breakfast were unexpected pleasures.

We were really happy to stay in this Holiday Inn. Great value. Free drinks. Nice customer service. Friendly personnel. We were happy to see value of Holiday Inn again with free coffee and cookies. This brand is much better then many overpriced hotels with paid water that cost $5

I stayed in this hotel for the Bhaktifest in Madison. It was right across the street. The people at the front desk were very friendly and they even let us check out at 2pm the last day. They suggested where to eat dinner. Breakfast was great with omelets, waffles, sausage, cereal, etc. It was quiet even though my room was near the lobby. The room did smell a little musty but I brought along some spray and that fixed it.

Very comfortable hotel in a convenient location. Good size room, comfortable beds. Fairly quiet location, even though it is close to hwy 12. No fridge or microwave in room. $95 room charge if you have AAA, $20 pet fee. Has a good business center. Breakfast is included in room rate. This hotel does not have a restaurant, but provides information for a delivery service for several local restaurants.
