Was well worth the cost. Clean bathrooms. Clean linens. Hotel needs to use kilz on its rooms. I have stayed at this hotel several times. The no smoking rooms smell very badly of smoke. I always carry febreze with me for this reason.

this is the worst hotel/motel I ever stayed in. A hotel in a 3rd world country would be better. There are leaks everywhere, the lighting is awful. the beds are so uncomfortable it feels like it's made of cactus. If you go to the bathroom (there is a provided plunger) because you will need to use it every time you...

This was a good clean motel. Not anything special but for the prices that are charged in Madison it was a good place to stay. Very quiet and I got a good night sleep. The front desk was very helpful and friendly.

When we made the reservations, we estimated the property to be about what it turned out to be - simply a place to crash for the night. The staff was VERY friendly. The hotel is an older property that appeared to need some attention. The room did smell of smoke. The lighting and general decor of the room seemed to...

We booked a room here and were told it was a non smoking facility. When we entered our room it smelled like someone had been chain smoking solidly for the past 5 years in the room. The floor was also filthy. They gave us another room and it had the same issue. When we were in the office getting a...
