We stayed here for a craft show in Madison. The hotel is old and worn but it seemed like all of the hotels in the area are the same way. Hotel definitely needs some updating and brightening up. The rooms were rather drab. It was clean though. Beds were comfortable but the pillows were tiny and flat. I did ask... More

Staff friendly and efficient at check in. This is an older hotel but the room was large and clean. The heated pool was very nice. My only negative is that the bathtub was very slick and there were no grab bars and the ice machine was in a secluded area close to what looked like a maintenance area.

The carpet was unraveling everywhere. Nails sticking up from the floor as you enter the bathroom. I found that out when one poked my foot. When both entry doors were... More

This was hotel was great, small but nice. Staff was great, our room was clean and the pool was refreshing. Breakfast was a small selection but good. The rooms were better than I expected for the price.

stayed overnight on trip scouting for our annual motorcycle ride. I saw the price and was worried about whether or not it would be clean and nice. Worry not! A great value at the price they asked. The staff was very friendly too.
