This hotel was acceptable. It wasn't a great location, and the room had apparent wear and tear. However, it was comfortable and met my expectations. I would recommend staying here if you're looking for a cheaper alternative to some of the more expensive hotels in downtown Madison, provided you don't mind the approximately 15 minute drive.

Pros: Continental breakfast adequate.
Cons: Pool and exercise room ridiculously small.
Location: There for family weekend at UW-Madison. While hotel only 10 miles away, lots of traffic at all hours so 25 minute trip.
You get what you pay for. Cheap rate, fine if you only need a bed to sleep in.

Missed opportunities

Posted 2-Oct-2015
Pros: We wanted to stay in the Madison area so we didn't have to drive home after the football game.
Cons: When things didn't work, the staff should have fixed the problem, moved us to a different room, or refunded our money.
We had multiple problems with our room. Each time we asked for help, someone made an attempt to fix it, but failed. The safe in the room was locked when we got there. When I aked for help, the woman managing the place came down with a devise to openit, but it didn't open the safe. She said sorry, but that happens here. 10 minutes later when we tried to turn on the TV, it wouldn't turn on. I again called the front desk. The same woman told me to unplug the TV from the wall and try again. That didn't help. We tried changing the batteries in the remote (my wife's idea). That didn't work either. Since we had prepaid for the room, we had no leverage to get moved to another room (the place was also full because it was a football Saturday). Nothing was ultimately done to rectify our problems and no adjustment was made to the cost of the room. I would NEVER stay at this hotel again.

Room was not very clean, especially by the bed. There were stains on the comforter, pillow cases and sheets. Didnt even want to sleep there. Was not expecting a murphy bed either, not comfortable. The shower had 2 shower heads. One was hanging by the cord with no way to attach it to the wall, the other wouldn't turn on. Made it a little difficult to take a shower.

So so

Posted 28-Sep-2015
As our reservation was for a sat night (for a badger football game) we expected very warm greetings. Instead we were greeted to a staff member barely making eye contact when I said hi we have a reservation. Looking up from her computer (face rested on her palm leaning on the desk) and looking back at her computer, not asking for any information, she had to finish what she was doing of course (insert annoyed look as well) she was less that warm and short with us. When we came back to our rooms, The other couple that we were with had to call the front desk because their air conditioner was not working properly. The man at the front desk proceeded to say well I'm the only one here what do you want me to do about it?" Not only was the air conditioner not working there was old rotted food in it with mold on it. Needless to say our experience was less than satisfactory.

The bed was too soft for my taste. the air conditioner was too noisy to run at nite and with it off it was too warm. The check in was very easy and the staff was cordial. The pool and hot tub were adequate. The continental breakfast was okay except for no coffee on one morning.

Wall bed and moldy shower...

Posted 28-Aug-2015 on Hotels
For some reason my while booking this room "special accommodations" was checked. For this reason my employee was stowed into a converted room from an old conference room. The bed folded down from the wall and the bathroom was a small closet. The bed was uncomfortable and the shower was small and the curtain was full of mold. After complaining they "upgraded" him to a real room, but it wasn't much better. We will never torture our employee like this again. Embarrassing!!!

Poor maintenance, terribly noisy air conditioner

Posted 26-Aug-2015
Room was okay. The air conditioner was very loud. What made worse was it had 4 variations in the noise that never allowed us to sleep. We took a break from a long trip to rest. But that didn't happen. Breakfast was appalling. Some of the cereals were stale. There wasn't enough bread. Waffles stuck to the waffle maker so badly that you have to scrape off from the waffle maker.

Corporate lack of attention.

Posted 25-Aug-2015 on Hotels
It's a Days Inn, so expectations were not high. The man watching the counter was about as attentive as you could expect at 1 AM, and he had nothing to do with the poor condition for the room. I am thoroughly convinced that this location has fallen to the wayside when it comes to corporate attention. Cracks and holes in the wall, missing grout in the shower, washrags that had obviously not been washed, bullet hole in the window, the list could go on and on. I needed a place to sleep for the night, and it was barely more comfortable than my car. Only my car doesn't cost anything to sleep in. I won't be returning.

We stayed here for a overnight trip while traveling. The room had everything we needed.
