Very comfortable bed. Otherwise the room was standard with all the amenities you would expect. Fast and stable Wi-Fi. Breakfast was good with both hot and cold options. 45 mins walk to downtown or $7 by Uber.

Room is nicely furnished. Not in the heart of the downtown area of Madison, so the rates will be lower, but an easy 10 minute drive to University of Wisconsin. Breakfast is included, which I rate about 6 - it's fine. The staff is friendly and they served cookies and drinks to guests when I checked-in late afternoon. Will visit...

I liked that from this hotel I could walk to the city. One evening they offered snacks and cheese + a choice of a drink -- I pleasantly welcomed those extra calories, that I later burned out on that walk downtown.

Avoid going there on sports weekend.You wouldn't find a room in that time. Besides that, no problem. And the hotel is close to the lake, fresh air and beautiful view. But not in the downtown area, so you need a car.

This was a fine place to spend the night in Madison. I'm not head over heals about it, but for the cost, it was fine. A couple better than average things were the free beers and appetizers in the afternoon and the free breakfast in the morning. Our only real complaint was the barking dog next door.
