Definitely would choose somewhere else. Kind of rundown and dingy looking inside. It was not the WORST but DEFINITELY would not stay again. We chose this location out of convenience on our trip, and it appeared to be a nice place and good value. We also thought we may go to the casino down the street, which we ended up...

I booked this hotel through Hotwire, which listed the hotel as having an airport shuttle.. an important feature because I didn't have a car on the night I arrived. When I called during my travel in Portland to arrange pickup upon arrival in Madison, I was told they have a shuttle but that it was all booked up with a...

My family and I came to this hotel for 2 nights. They did not clean our room once throughout our entire stay. When we talked to the front desk about it they said we were lying and it was cleaned.

This was our second stay at the hotel. The first was good but this was bad. They advertise free internet is all rooms. We had none. When I went to the front desk the girl behind the desk was very flustered. She was making pizza, answering the phone and waiting on the desk! When I went to ask about changing...

Rooms were not very clean and looked worn. The first room had...

This hotel is very nice. Free breakfast with pancakes, juice and yogurt is consistent daily. Great hotel staff! ! Suite has sofa that comfortable. King bed is very relaxing and firm. Room had desk, microwave, mini fridge and coffee maker. Bathroom standard but works well. Iron and ironing board. No alcohol casino with no smoking section just down the road.

The place is older, but it was clean. Very inexpensive at 75 bucks for a sat night. Had pool and hottub. Easy to find location. Staff friendly. Not high class by any means but a place to sleep. Good enough.

They just recently remodeled their hotel everything from carpet to new paint this is my second time staying at this hotel and I'm 100% satisfied with this place and the way it's being ran. Everyone that works here is nice and very friendly also a plus that it's right next to a casino
