“over priced,thin walls,poor ac scary fire escape options”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

Newer HI Express, Heard every noise from three sides,walls so thin you could hear coughing,tv and plumbing from all directions. AC was minimal at best. Cheapest grade of towels and paper goods. One elevator for 3 floors and 250 rooms. No fire exits save for each end stairs and doors, a fire tube. The breakfast was typical HI express..not bad. For a newer HI Express was surprised at the tiny conventional tube tv. Way overpriced at 117.00. I would expect this to have another hotel brand sign over it shortly. I would not ever ever stay here again. Originally booked three nights for business, checked out after first night and moved to another HI nearby.

We needed this hotel because of no power due to October storm. Heidi, at the front desk was friendly as we checked in. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was excellent. The WiFI was broken during the stay. He said they were unsure why it was not working.

Stayed here while attending a large family Labor Day get together in Madison. Very clean, staff was super helpful and the room was more than large enough to accomadate a roll away bed in our room with two doubles. Hotel was full, due in part to guests for a large wedding party staying here. Staff handled it all without missing a beat. We will use this hotel when we come next year.
