Great, productive business trip set up by a good night's rest in Deforest. Would stay there again. Excellent exercise room and pool. Lots of fast food and sit down eating. Some shopping also around and available.

The hotel is convenient to the interstate and has a very hot whirlpool. The staff was friendly and the free cheese curds were an interesting complimentary gift. It is quiet, clean and has comfy pillows.

First, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Second, thank you for being a Priority Club member, that is the reason for the cheese curd gift. We appreciate your business and your time, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

8:30 am. COFFEE was empty, pancakes machine was empty, scrambled eggs tray was empty. Sat in the breakfast area for 20 minutes and nothing was replenished. BREAKFAST did not end until 9:30. Not what I'm used to from IHG, but I'll be back. Thank God for McDonald's across the street.

Happened upon this hotel on a driving trip when needing an overnight stay. Room was comfortable, quiet, smelled fresh and was very clean. Breakfast was plentiful. The cinnamon rolls were awesome. Easy in and out for our one night stay. Definitely recommend.

Can't believe they rented this room stinking of smoke. Immediately told desk clerk, she said no other room to move to of my type, would note that I mentioned the smoke so would not get cleaning charge. So laying here feeling my sinuses close.

Dear johnsonNjohnson, I am so sorry that your stay was not a satisfactory one. We are a non-smoking facility, however some guests see that as a suggestion rather than a law and smoke in the room anyway. We do the best we can to clean those rooms thoroughly. When at all possible we will not rent rooms that have been...

Very pleased with the quality of the bedding and the comfort of the room. The bed is more comfortable than HGI. I usually am faithful to Hilton properties but I will book more HIE properties in the future.

I stayed here on business. I'm from the city so it took a bit to adjust to the smell of farming or whatever nearby! The hotel was nice and clean. The last day I was there they had someone not show up to get breakfast ready. So a few of us guests were kinda on our own getting food together...
