We booked this hotel in part due to its complimentary shuttle service because it can be hard to park next to the Kohl Center, especially when you need 2 or 3 vehicles. When we asked for shuttle service to a hockey game, we were first told no that no one was available to drive the shuttle until after the game...

Thank you for staying with us for your visit to Madison. I understand your frustration at the availability of the shuttle and I will share your comments with our staff. The service is complimentary, but is based on availability. The only time there is a charge for service is when we contract with another company for UW Football game shuttles....

There is an interior walkway linking this motel to the convention center. Very convenient. Breakfast is included . Eggs were not great but everything else was good. Evening social hour with free drinks and snacks. Room was clean and comfy. Nice to be able to sit on a couch to watch TV. Small refrigerator in the room also.

We booked this hotel blind on Priceline and were pleased to get a 3-star hotel for $72/night. Three stars is about right. Its normal rates are very affordable, yet it's very clean, well-maintained, and updated. With free parking, free Internet, and free breakfast, how can you beat it? I didn't give it five stars, only because it's not a luxury...

Great hotel stay! The staff was friendly and helpful when looking for late-night food ordering. The room was a lot bigger than I thought it was going to be, so it was a great price. It was close to downtown, a quick cab ride. The breakfast was also very good. This is the second Clarion I've stayed at and have...

Wanted someplace centrally located in Madison. Because of the low price, thought it was going to be a mistake, but the room was great, really clean, breakfast was great, front desk was helpful, a lot of small amenities that made it a great place to stay and was in an excellent location to everywhere. Highly Recommend!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Clarion. It seemed to be close to everything. The afternoon happy hour hit the spot with complimentary wine and beer. Staff was very friendly. We visited the hot tub and enjoyed an area outside to even get some sun.

Highly recommend this hotel. First of all, the staff is OUTSTANDING! (including the front desk, shuttle drivers and housekeeping). Pleasant, accomodating and they go out of their way to make you feel at home. I have stayed at many high end hotels (Ritz Carlton included), and the staff here blows them away. On my first visit my bags did not...

We wanted to stay at a hotel near the campus/downtown area and all are pretty pricey. Didn't want to take a chance with hotwire/priceline since we had a specific area in mind. Still not bad in comparison and yes, driving distance vs. walking but still very close. The happy hour and hot breakfast are nice these days when even though...

We booked through Hotwire as my husband and I had a local engagement shoot with clients in the area. The outside facade is a bit beat up but don't let that be deceiving, the interior is very clean and well kept (especially being pet friendly to large dogs).
