    « Average for the $ spent »

    Nothing outstanding for this hotel - very typical for B Western. Nice location with restaurants and some shopping within walking distance. Not far from the airport. The breakfast is the same ole' layout and options you usually get. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The pool came in handy for the kids but found 2 huge spiders which put us all on alert! :/ Not a do over for me.

    Pet friendly hotel with far above average area for walking dog. Breakfast had wide assortment of items, including scrambled eggs, bacon sausage, potato Close to shopping and downtown. Cost for pet was high ($20)

    This hotel offers good value for price. The public areas and rooms are clean. Hotel staff are courteous. Breakfast was adequate not great. The inclusion of healthier items, more fruits and whole grain breads, would be appreciated.

    Comfortable room and good amenities. Location was also convenient to where we wanted to stay. Breakfast was also one of the better ones we've ever experienced at a hotel. Overall, we were happy with our stay.

    It was a GREAT stay! Had 5 rooms booked and they all were great. Fast Check-in. All went well for everything. The staff was there if we needed them. Friendly and pleasant. Will stay here again. Clean rooms!

    « Very good hotel for the price. »

    I was a little nervous when I arrived and saw that there were many families arriving for tournaments (wrestling and gymnastics). Having traveled many times with my son's hockey team, I know that the kids can be loud and rambunctious. My room was very nice. It was huge, clean, and very quiet. I did not hear anyone in adjoining rooms or in the hallway. I did not get back to my room until midnight, so perhaps everyone was asleep. The continental breakfast was just ok. The eggs were dry, but the bacon was cooked to perfection. Pretty much on par with the continental breakfast at almost every hotel I have stayed at.

    Great staff clean rooms, great service. pool was a bit cold, but whirlpool was nice and hot. Location is great and many food options close to walking distance. Plenty of parking as well as a very clea n appearance outside and inside

    « Great breakfast served here. »

    The breakfast served here is really good. I was in Madison for business and this was a nice perk from the hotel to start my day. The hot tub is waiting for you when you want to relax at the end of the day.

    « Staff needs training when someone complains about noisy hotel guests »

    The hotel is very average in accommodations and services. We were awakened at midnight by some men yelling Mother ______ and it sounded like they were fighting in a room somewhere near our room. This went on until 2:00 am, I had enough and called the front desk. Told them they needed to investigate immediately. I got back into bed and about 20 minutes later someone was pounding at our door. I was scared to death and did not go near the door. I had no idea if this was one of the hooligans or what. They finally left but the swearing went on until after 3:00am. I was exhausted and had to get up early for a flight out of town. I just stayed up until we checked out at 6:00 am. I told the front desk guy of the situation and he said security investigated. No mention of I'm sorry or anything else. There is no reason the front desk could not have called up to our room instead of pounding on our door. They should have been combing the hotel for these trouble makers instead of keeping me awake. If I could plainly hear them why couldn't the manager? Maybe he was scared to throw them out. I will never stay at this hotel again. It seems these hotels on the East side seem to attract a rough crowd. Next time I will stay by the Alliance Energy Center as I've never had anything happen like this in those hotels.

    « Average Hotel »

    I thought the Best Western East Towne Suites was an average hotel at best. The furniture in the room seemed to be outdated but it worked. The bathroom was extremely small. The door to the bathroom basically hit's the front of the toilet when opened. Water pressure was extremely low in the shower and had to hold the handle down on the toilet the whole entire time in order for the toilet to flush fully. The Wi-Fi was terrible, couldn't stay connected longer than 5 minutes and kept cutting out. The staff was very friendly, check in and out was super fast. The free breakfast was very good in my opinion. Had a nice selection to choose from which included eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles and other foods. The hotel was very close to restaurants and the highway so it's located in a nice area.

    « Great place to stay »

    Edit review 4.0 star rating 3/12/2018 We were in a crunch when it came time to have showings after our house went on the market, we needed to find a place that would accommodate cats and give us a late checkout so we wouldn't have to pay for an extra day. The staff at Best Western East Towne Suites really came through for us. They had a very nice room available and allowed us to have a late checkout on our last day so we could be comfortable while we waited to get back into our house in the afternoon. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the staff is very thoughtful and attentive. They have a good breakfast (included!) and snacks and beverages for sale (which is very convenient if you're needing to tend to your pets). I'd like to send a thanks to Ann, Chris and Zak for taking such good care of us!

    « Great Hotel?Would Stay Again »

    Spent one night while in Madison for an event. Although the hotel was fully booked when we stayed we had an excellent experience. All front desk staff we met when checking in were very friendly. We were pleasantly surprised by the one bedroom suite. It was spacious and, most important to me, very clean. Bed was comfortable! The hot breakfast was excellent. Despite the large volume of people, the eggs, bacon, sausage, and potatoes were kept full. Also available was a waffle maker as well as assorted cereals, breads, rolls, and pastry. Were very impressed with the breakfast. Tables were kept clean and staff was friendly. Location was right next to East Towne Mall as well as other shops and restaurants. Would definitely recommend and wouldn't hesitate to stay again!

    « Overrated »

    Room was dirty, beat up, and dated. The linens for the fold out couch had holes and the blanket was dirty. The carpet had sections cut out and replaced. Mold on the bathroom ceiling and in the refrigerator. TVs only had limited channels and no HD, only 480i. Location was convenient, but that was really the only benefit.

    « Best Wester East Towne Suites »

    I stayed at the BW Town Suites while in Madison, WI for business. The location was in a very handy mall area, with many choices for food, fuel and shopping. The hotel was very easy to find and we were welcomed by the front desk staff as we entered the front entrance.. Checking in was pleasant, quick and informative about the hotels amenities. I was very disappointed to here that the pool and atrium area were closed for our entire thre day stay due to annual maintenance; as a daily swimmer I would have used their Amazing pool atrium area had it been open; it really is very nice, with a southern exposure and large open area surrounding the pool and hot tub. My stay experience was very good and a big thank you to the helpful staff. I will definitely stay there again when in Madison, if their pool area is open!

    « Nice Hotel For The Money »

    The suite we had at this hotel was very nice. They have nice towels and wash cloths, a firm mattress on the bed, a large TV, and our room was very clean. Our room was on the first floor and close to the indoor pool which had a chlorine smell when we went down the hallway to our room, but, there was NO chlorine smell in the room at all. For the money we spent for our stay, this hotel is an excellent choice when in the Madison area. We would definitely stay there again.

    « Quick get away »

    We decided to do a quick get away to Madison. We found East Towne Suites and got a good price. The check in was great, they greeted us and we were checked in quickly. The queen suite we had was clean. The couch was a bit stained but we never even sat in it. The bed was comfy. The breakfast was very good. The dining room was clean. The man never stopping cleaning it up. We would return if ever in Madison again.

    « Great Time »

    Our family get together at the Holidays was at the East Towne Best Western. We rented a meeting room and had about a dozen rooms. It was fabulous. The staff was extremely helpful and even brought in a TV so we could watch Wisconsin in the Orange Bowl. The pool was nice; breakfast was good; the rooms spacious & clean; and the beds very comfortable. It was great value for the money and we had a wonderful time.

    This is a nice, clean property with a nice helpful and friendly staff. They have a good size pool for the kids and hot tub for the adults as well as a decent (although basic) breakfast in the morning. The room and bathroom were clean, the bed comfortable and everything worked. This was our 3rd stay at this property and we'll likely stay again.

    We stayed here one night while traveling. When we checked in we were greeted with an efficient and courteous front desk person (sorry I forgot to get the name). The room was large and super clean with a very comfortable bed. It's a great location with restaurants and shopping nearby. Would definitely stay here again!

    Excellent room, breakfast and overall value. But the bathtubs are a lawsuit waiting to happen- slippery and no safety bars. Apart from that, the remainder of our experience would rate a 5, and we definitely would stay there again.

    « Incredible Value - Great Room! »

    We stayed for an overnight in December - room was excellent, complete with a sitting area. Staff was very friendly and a nice continental breakfast, as well. Room rate was also a good value - not sure if it was the off season, & rates are higher in the summer months or not. We would definitely stay again, if in the area!

    « Great price, great service »

    We stayed at this hotel over Thanksgiving. Pros: Great value for the price. Very clean quiet room. Comfortable bed. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Easy check in and out. Nice hot breakfast. Coffee and cream available pretty much all of the time; little store has just about anything you could need. Cons: TV was not high def; shower stream was a little weak; hotel is older and in need of some TLC.

    « only average other BWs have been much better »

    My stay started poorly with the room card not opening the door. Later that night I tried to adjust the airco/heat and the controls were so old and crude that it would either be much too hot or much too cold and very slow to respond to a setting. There was no way to get them set without trial and error and taking a long time to find out what the output would be with each try.

    « Good option near the airport! »

    The Best Western is about 10-15 minutes from the airport. We had a very early morning flight out so this hotel was a good choice. Check-in was smooth. The room was nice, with good TV, coffee maker, fridge and microwave. Good wifi. Bed was pretty comfortable, but a little to soft for my liking. We really liked the many choices of good restaurants within walking distance. Nice little in-hotel store with basics at reasonable prices. We left too early in the morning to avail of the breakfast, but the breakfast room looked large and neatly arranged. They have a nice indoor pool, but didn't mop up the dripping water left by kids very well in the elevator and lobby areas. Overall, a good choice for our needs. Would be glad to stay again.

    « Lives up to the Best Western reputation for value »

    The East Towne Best Western is conveniently located on the east side of Madison and very close to the East Towne shopping mall and many restaurants. It is also just off Rte 151, East Washington Avenue which makes it easy to drive to events and sites in Madison. It is 10 minutes from the airport. Rooms are nicely appointed. Staff is courteous and helpful. Fitness center has a treadmill, elliptical, recumbent bike and weight machine. Breakfast is decent, and there are other options close by if it doesn't hit your spot.(e.g., You can easily walk to Panera's)

    « Just what I expected »

    Front desk staff were very helpful and courteous. Greeted everyone who came through the door. Room was clean and nicely appointed. Breakfast buffet is adequate. Kevin, who works the breakfast buffet on the weekend worked very hard to keep the food items supplied and tables clean. The location of this hotel is good, within East Towne Mall area and near Rte 151, East Washington Ave.

    « The staff makes the difference »

    The staff at this hotel were very nice and helpful. The guy who helped in the breakfast was very nice and helpful. I made it a point to go back to my room and get a couple of dollars to tip him because it didn't look like many people had. It's a shame because he did a great job.

    « Sub Par for BW »

    I absolutely was not treated as a gold Rewards member. The staff was lackadaisical and I was put in a handicapped room where everything is designed for someone in a wheel chair. When you're six three, that can make shaving awkward. The decor was shabby and obviously in need of upkeep. I spent as little time in the room as possible.

    « Pleasantly Surprised! »

    The area was very expensive so we selected the Best Western based on its competitive price point. I was actually pleasantly surprised how well-kept the rooms were. It had the "clean" feeling when you walked in. Breakfast was decent offering complimentary hot and cold choices. Staff was very friendly. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

    « Good value! »

    We were in Madison for an overnight stay, and didn't want to pay the high rates for a downtown hotel. I had stayed here a few years ago and was pleased that the quality was still good, especially for the reasonable rate. The only disappointment was that the hot tub in the pool area was barely warm, but we didn't make an issue of it. Our room was clean and comfortable, with plenty of space. Everything worked as it should. The location also makes it easy to access 90/94 or head out on HWY 151.

    « Wonderful Hotel!!! »

    This hotel was just a stopping ground and meeting place for a large group of my friends. So I didn't get to explore the area but the hotel was absolutely beautiful inside and out. The room was huge, VERY clean, and the bed was so comfortable. The bathroom was exceptional and the facilities were nice. The best part was that it had a mini convenient store inside. Fortunately they carried contact solution because I had forgotten mine. They even sell small bottles of booze, and beer too. The pool/hot tub were wonderful! I would definitely come back and stay here the next time I am in Madison. The location seems perfect and the staff was friendly and nice.

    Very nice and quiet, convenient to many stores and restaurants. Confusing street layout for the East Towne shopping complex, but a great variety of stores.

    « Looks nice, but looks are decieving »

    The pool area was nice, hot tub was good and hot, pool was nice. Staff is friendly. Beds are like wood planks--that are bowed. Did not sleep at all. Lighting was so dim you couldn't see a thing without the curtains open and after dark you are just screwed. They should give out night vision goggles at the desk. Door lock was broken. Refrigerator was off when we got there. After instructing me how to turn it on over the phone--and me failing because I had to take the whole refrigerator out of the cabinet and in that darkened room, I could NOT see what I was doing--the clerk came and did it. But it didn't get fully cool until the next morning, so food didn't keep overnight. Pillows were ridiculous. Squished down to nothing--no support at all. Breakfast was a nightmare. Very friendly staff, but piss poor food quality. This is the last time I fall for "full hot breakfast" included. I'd rather fast than eat that chemical and corporate, bottom quality food. Only really good thing I can say about the place, besides the friendly staff, is that it has good sound proofing. We were there on a Saturday night with rowdy teenagers in the pool until 11AM and people coming and going in the middle of the night and we really couldn't hear it. Only reason I know is because I couldn't sleep all night on those rotten beds so I was in the bathroom a few times trying to read(only decent lighting) and from there I COULD hear all the doors slamming at 1 and 2 in the morning, But not from the main room itself.

    « Nice Hotel/Hard Beds »

    This hotel is in a good location (easy on & off of freeway). Nice hotel all around with the exception (for me) of bed being too hard and pillows for the Flintstones. I would stay here again, but bring my own pillows. The give you plenty of towels, so I didn't have to ask for extra as I usually have to do no matter what hotel I stay at. I asked about Veterans' discount and they gave me a lower rate. Afterwards I checked on line and could have gotten that same rate had I booked it myself (apparently not really a discount then, right?)

    « Our hotel while visiting our grandchildren. »

    I am picky about hotels, and I really like this place! The room was clean and bed was super comfortable. Our little grand daughters (who live in Madison) stay with us in our room sometimes, the pull out bed is perfect for them. Also, the coffee table with couch and other chairs was a great place for us to play board games with our grand daughters. The pool and pool area is big and so inviting. The breakfast had an actual chef making the eggs and sausage. Also, beers are $1 in the hotel store. We didn't have any but, they were there. We're going this Friday and Sunday, excited knowing we have a comfortable place that we can stay at now.

    This is my choice of hotel when staying in Madison area. It's clean, well-maintained, has a great, hot breakfast, and very reasonable rates. Have not used the pool yet, but will on some future trip. The queen suite is the way to go - plenty of room for 2.

    « Great Choice for a Madison Stay »

    We originally made our reservations for a downtown hotel that I used to stay in when traveling to Madison on business. We were staying for a three night, Labor Day weekend visit. The hotel reservation was about $1,000 for the weekend. We just couldn't deal with that and started looking on TripAdvisor for something more reasonable. The location on the BW looked good. Easy access to downtown, but also near many far east side restaurants and shopping opportunities. The price was so very much less, however, that I really feared we were going to end up in a dump. Couldn't have been farther from the truth. The hotel was well appointed and very clean. The rooms were huge. We had a King bed with desk and chair and a separate sitting area with couch, two comfortable chairs and a coffee table. The room included a small refrigerator which was nice and cold when we checked in and a microwave. The bath had nice granite or marble counters and was very clean. The beds were not the most comfortable I have ever slept in, but were adequate. I had an opportunity to enjoy the pool on Saturday afternoon and, for awhile, had it all to myself. On a holiday weekend! Breakfasts were very good. On Sunday I got there 15 minutes before closing time and expected to find empty or cold hot food serving dishes. Not so. The staff was refilling the eggs, potatoes and sausages only minutes before the 10:00 AM closing. Very nice surprise! It is also dog friendly, which we did not need this time, but we will remember that for the future. Would definitely stay here again. Great value and fun stay.

    My husband and I stayed here for two nights--super location, easy to find and we enjoyed a great stay! Hats off to the staff for one of the cleanest pools and pool areas I've ever seen. It was grand to take a cool dip after a hot day traveling. The perfect ending to a hectic day. You provided all the towels and comfy chairs, too! The bed was soft without being hard and the room relaxing and comfortable. The hotel seemed near capacity, yet it was quiet at all hours. The complimentary breakfast was homemade and delicious. Thank you for a great stay!

    « Right off the expressway »

    The hotel is right off the expressway so it was a great stop for a short night say during a road trip up north. The room was very clean. The included breakfast had both hot and cold options. This is definitely a great option in Madison. It's a bit more expensive than other options, but I definitely understand why.

    « You get what you pay for »

    Nothing wrong with this hotel, but certainly nothing special. The location is good if you're interested in shopping at the mall. Suite is a bit of a stretch. There is a living room "area", but only one tv, so if you're traveling with kids (as I was), be prepared to watch Cartoon Network until the wee hours. Plenty of fast food options around, easy access to highways...if you're looking for inexpensive, easy and no frills, this is it. Breakfast is included, which I like.

    This hotel is by far the best of all the best western's I have seen. The room is very spacious, awesome customer service, wonderful continental breakfast and on and on. I have been here so many times and I never had any problem or a complaint. I think out of like 15 times I was here, only once my TV remote did not work but was taken care within minutes. I recommend this place to everyone visiting Madison.

    « Best Value in Madison »

    It is very hard to find a high quality moderately priced hotel in the Madison area. This one is my favorite. It is fireproof construction (a rarity these days). The breakfast is above average for this price range and the staff is very accommodating. While it is close enough to be seen from the highway, it is far enough away that the highway is never heard. They have a small store off the lobby, too. It's rare at this price point to be able to purchase beer, wine and spirits in the lobby.

    « For the most part, a great hotel »

    We went to WI to visit family. Due to driving from TX, they allowed us to check in at 1pm, because there was a room ready. I've stayed at this hotel once before in July of 2013. I was happy to see some improvements had been done. This is a very old hotel but nice at the same time. They have a wonderful indoor pool - which we used at least once a day. The hot tub was out dated for sure, And the water in it seemed to be to hot to acclimate to. The rooms are clean, the staff is extremely nice and accomendating. It stays really quiet in the room. Shower had pretty good pressure. We used the fitness room daily also, but is very small for a hotel that size. I had mentioned in a review the last time that breakfast was good, but it was the same thing every day. They changed that, now there are two types of breakfast they alternate between every other day. I believe they could do more with their breakfast choices. Such as fresh fruit, omlets, more of a cereal selection, sausage patties instead of links every day...stuff like that. In other words - great hotel - just needs some tweaking to have some of the amenities match the size and occupancy of the hotel.

    We had recently had good luck with a couple of other Best Western hotels, but this one is very tired. The sheets were worn and paper thin.

    « Good Travel Hotel if a Bit Tired »

    A clean, reasonably priced, well-located - if a bit tired - traveler's hotel. I've stayed here twice now for three reasons; they allow pets, they are located right off the highway with a dozen restaurants within walking distance, and they maintain a clean property. The breakfast is above average in terms of variety, and the staff friendly and helpful (to include the desk staff). Rooms are decently appointed, with the latest Best Western upgrades on linens. Against that, this is just a tired property. One is likely to find a carpet repair, a loose piece of hardware, a damaged baseboard - and in a muggy summer - an interior humidity that seemed only slightly better than that of the outdoors. The air conditioning functioned sufficiently to keep us cool but didn't seem to make much of an impact on the vaguely damp feel of things. It is probable that this hotel is on BW's list of properties for renovation sooner rather than later - this will be great, because the location, pet policy, and friendly staff will have infrastructure equal to them.

    The manager refused to refund a booking date error I made on their website even though I did stay with them on my intended date. Anyone can make a mistake. I failed to change the default date (current date) on the website to July 14th when making the reservation the evening of July 5th. They charged me as a no-show and refused to refund it when I arrive on July 14th. I recommend not staying here as there is no forgiveness for people who make errors.

    First if all - this hotel is immaculate - everything was beyond my expectations. The staff are so knowledgeable, nice, and informative. The free breakfast in the morning was super. Was able to make oatmeal (my favorite) and a good assortment of hot items, and a good selection of cereals, yogurts, juices, etc. The hours for the pool/hot tub are the best - 7:00 am - 11:00 pm. After breakfast, we all went swimming for an hour or more - still checked out before 11:00 am. I have stayed at other Best Westerns and have been disappointed. Well, the folks who own this property make your experience at their hotel far and above what I am used to getting. And they have a 24-hour "snack bar" with snacks, drinks, beer, ice cream, and after you are done picking out what you want, the front desk clerk appears at the snack bar window and checks you out! No overpriced pop machines!

    « VERY disappointed »

    First, we never did stay here. Wanted to use the hotel and made a reservation for 3 days in late June. Learned later that they booked us to arrive on the WRONG day, 24 hours before our plan. Because we did not arrive 0n that day we were charged for it anyway. The desk manager refused to acknowledge the the error was theirs, so we cancelled the reservation for the remaining days and stayed elsewhere. Lost a day's cost on their carelessness. So CAREFULLY check the hotel's confirmation email details -- they do not do so themselves.

    « Good price »

    We stayed here for three nights. We arrived quite late the first night and our room had been saved and we got exactly the type of room we asked for. The reason we chose this motel was that the price was the best of the major hotels/motels in the area. The staff was very friendly. I would lie to see an improvement in the breakfast fare. The bananas were very green, oatmeal was to have you add a packet to hot water, ran out of English muffins, no flavored cream, and the usual scrambled? eggs. Cereal could add granola also. They could stand to upgrade the beds and bathrooms as they are beginning to show their age. The motel has easy access to several chain restaurants and is just a short drive to many other finer dining experiences. Close to the interstate as well, but motel is very quiet as I heard no traffic noise. Inside the motel is equally as quiet. If one is budget minded and wishes to have bit nicer motel, this would be the place.

    This Best Western is located by a major mall and 5 miles straight to the state capital. Easy access to the interstate. Motel is clean, newly remodeled, and things WORK. I've been in places where the whirlpool chronically don't work but this was fine. Staff was eager to assist. I ate a very lite breakfast so I don't care to comment on something I didn't use much of. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Beds are good. No problems I can think of so ... stay here is a good bet and a good deal. Compared to motels BY the capital, cost is about 1/2 and rooms are as nice as any "down town". On the road; relax with easy access to interstate, relax in the pool or whirlpool. Restaurants near by of every sort.

    « Horrible Customer Service »

    Strap in Everyone, because this tale of Horrific Customer Service got "TOO REAL" too quickly... Let me preface this true tale of a one star review with this: I DID make an error with my booking. I am to blame for that. Here is the Background: Seth, the manager at this Best Western has created and decided to enforce a NO-EXCEPTIONS policy for anyone booking through a third party vendor (i.e. Priceline/ Expedia/ Kayak etc... you know the websites people use to find and book hotels with that keep hotels in business etc...) and made it impossible for me to correct a simple wrong-date booking error that would not have hurt his business whatsoever. Cool, so the story goes: I booked the wrong date through Expedia, did not double check and through a stroke key error, hit submit for the wrong night. CRAP! I immediately called Expedia to try to correct. Expedia states that I could not switch the dates and the cancellation is up to Best Western. I say okay let's call Best Western quickly to see if I can get this changed...either switch the date or cancel and re-book... They still get my money and I still get to stay a night...simple, right?." I called Best Western immediately to try to correct. I was forwarded to Seth... now the call was after hours.... but he would not speak to me about the issue. He just kept repeating over and over "You have to call Expedia." Me: "Sorry to call so late, I am trying to correct this silly error (explained what happened), would I be able to so?" Seth: "You have to call Expedia" Me: "Expedia said they just spoke with you and said I would have to pay full price for the night I booked and I wanted to see if that was true?" Seth: "You have to call Expedia" Me: " Did they already talk with you? Do I have the same person that they spoke with?" Seth: .......................... Me: saying out loud "I think he hung up on me." Seth: "No I didn't.. You have to call Expedia." He would not discuss anything nor confirm his own policy over the phone. ..........This continued for a while..... it got ridiculous so I told him how unhelpful he was and ended the conversation. I contacted Best Westerns Corporate number and customer service line.. they said each Best Western has their own policy but that Expedia could sent them a fax with proof of cancellation and there really shouldn't be any problem... Basically, Best Western itself was saying that if everyone did their part.. there would be no issue with fixing this. Best Western Customer Service also called the East Towne Suites on my behalf to see if anything could be done. This story ends with a 3 way call between Me, an Expedia Supervisor and Tanya, the Best Western East Towne Suites other manager in which Tanya screamed at the Expedia Supervisor and stated "IS THIS GETTING TOO REAL FOR YOU??" discussing the non-refundable policies with third party Vendors. The mood was tense... I couldn't believe I was listening to two business professionals go at it over the phone about a dumb Policy enforced by this Hotel...the Hostility was on Best Westerns side. Clearly they had some secret hotel beef with third party vendors that I have yet to comprehend. Expedia decided to throw me a bone and find me a new hotel and pay the Best Western for my wrong booking, which was very kind of them. Expedia asked if I wanted to fix it and just stay at the Best Western to which I replied: "Absolutely Not!" I do not want to stay in a Hotel with such terrible customer service. In conclusion: JESUS SETH CHANGE YOUR POLICY. YOU NEED THIRD PARTY VENDORS TO HELP FILL YOUR ROOMS. STOP BEING RIDICULOUS AND WORK WITH PEOPLE. YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE is awful!! I will be avoiding Best Westerns from here on out and you should too.

    « Comfortable, well located, but needs some renovations »

    This hotel is well located just off the highway. Close to shopping and several restaurants, this is not a bad place to spend one night as you travel through. As they say, you get what you pay for. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean. However, perhaps it is time to renovate some of the rooms as mine had a carpet that had seen better days and a vinyl plank floor that had bumps in it. The beds are in need of being changed as there definitely was a low spot in the middle. The pol appeared to be well maintained and there was plenty of exterior parking available. Good hotel when passing through.

But overall definitely not the best but not the worst.

    We stayed here one weekend night and found it very satisfactory. There are no frills and the lobby is on the small side. But our room was clean, well furnished, and fairly well soundproofed because we never heard any noise from either side of us or below us. (We were on the top floor.) The breakfast was quite nice, with the usual hot and cold cereals, oatmeal, yogurts, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, potatoes, wafflemaker, and more. (No bagels, though, and the only whole-grain bread was soft whole wheat bread.) The breakfast area was larger than we often find in this type of hotel. A big plus was that our queen-bed suite, with a partial wall divider, had a pull-out sofa too. I don't remember that being advertised. We had no problems with the heating or any other aspect of the room. Another big plus is that the hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants, and within a five-minute drive of many more restaurants and a big shopping mall. On top of that, it's nearly right on the highway leading to or from Milwaukee. So for convenience, as well as room comfort and cleanliness, this is a great place to stay.

    Located near MSN airport NW of downtown Madison, WI, this property offers spacious rooms at a reasonable price.

    « Older BW Property »

    Was disappointed in this property. I had never stayed at this property and since I made my reservation by phone, I had no way of knowing the condition of the property. It's an older property that looks like it used to be apartments at one time. The lobby area appears to have been updated but the rooms are dated, bathrooms are extremely small and our room had a terrible cigarette odor. The bed was comfortable though. We reported the odor to the front desk, nothing was done about it and they didn't offer to move us to a different room. My mom was in a different room and had a heater unit that didn't work. We reported that to the front desk, nothing was done to fix it and they didn't offer to move her to a different room. Fitness center is on the 2nd floor, in a hallway of regular hotel rooms. Very confusing because unless you saw the sign on the wall when you get off the elevator, there is no sign telling you where it's located. If you want to use the fitness center, you have to get a new room key every day and if you forget to get one, you have to go back down to the front desk and get a new key. I don't understand why the fitness center key can't be valid for the duration of your stay just like your room key! It's very inconvenient!

Every time I stay I find the staff friendly and cooperative and willing to fix or address any issues. The breakfast is great (Eggs, sausage, bread goods, fruits and yogurts, coffees and juices) and well attended. This is an older hotel, but it is very clean, which I look forward to. My only complaint is that inside the rooms the items are a bit outdated. I find the beds to be a bit soft and out of date and the AC units are still the older small wall unit varieties that cycle on/off all night, which frequently keeps me awake without additional white noise.

    We stayed one night during a busy weekend with a Badger game and Halloween activities on State Street. Our rate was great, check in and check out very smooth and the room was very quiet (on 4th floor). Location is very convenient. Pool is small but was clean and the hot tub was nice. Many breakfast choices and friendly staff at breakfast and desk.

    « Good value for your money »

    Stayed here on a one day business trip to Madison. The hotel is close to the airport and not too far from Madison downtown. It is in a convenient location opposite a number of restaurants and close to the East Town mall. Perfect location if your business is in the East Towne area. It is a nice and well maintained hotel. Clean rooms, comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. There is a small functional gym, a pool and heated whirlpool that I enjoyed use of. Breakfast is very good with hot or cold selection to choose from. It is great value for your money. One star off because the corridor had a damp and musty smell, but I will return here if I'm looking for a quick stop in the East Towne area.

    Clean, lovely suite for a very good price. Two very comfortable queen beds w/ table and chairs and your own TV separated by a partition into a very nice sitting area w/ a couch, coffee table, desk and TV for extra people or just for the night owl. Bathroom was standard w/ shower/tub but fair size and clean. Many restaurants directly across the street from this hotel. Everything walking distance. They even gave you a 15% off dinner certificate to a restaurant across the street. Sweet!

    This was a decent place, well worth the cost. Staff was friendly, our room was clean and the free breakfast was pretty standard. The best part about this hotel was their pet policy. Dogs are welcome in any room for an additional $20 fee and they can be left unattended as long as they're crated and not barking. So if you happen to have a well behaved dog, bring it along!

    My husband and I stayed here because we were passing through the area. It was affordable and right off the interstate. This hotel is an older place, but the staff was very nice. I like a firm bed, so the mattress suited my comfort level. But if you like a soft bed, this might not be the place for you. If you want to eat the free breakfast I advise getting up early.

    We stayed here for one night and while our expectations can be high based on the types of hotels we normally stay in, this one was right up there in terms of the important features. Yes the rooms were not fancy but they were clean, had all the right amenities including plenty of readily available outlets for charging all that we need to charge, and came with free wi-fi. The next morning the free breakfast was very good. I also had the need to sit in the lobby for over an hour doing some work - the lobby area was very nice. I also heard the way the desk staff spoke over the phone and to customers. Very professional and helpful in every conversation. Pretty impressive. Highly recommend this place.

    An older but well maintained hotel. All accommodations are suites, small but just the two divided spaces one likes in a hotel room. The balconies are a real plus in nice weather. The hotel is pet friendly and surrounded by just about any chain restaurant and others that a traveler would need, and in walking distance. Front desk crew seems to change a lot, but check-in is usually very quick in you reserve in advance. There's a real breakfast with an actual cook. Good Value hotel.

    The room is actually a suit.. it is really big and has a tv. Ac. Chouches. Toiletries.

Blanket and cover... that was uncomfortable too There is no water to drink in the room. And awful coffee machines They serve not so good breakfast but yet edible. There is a pool and a terrace. You need to drive to get to downtown. They have positives and negative.. but the pillows just lowered the rating

    « Late, one Thursday night stay »

    Was driving along the highway around midnight, knowing we were going to stay in Madison but we didnt have a hotel booked yet. So I checked a few prices online, and called this one due to a favorable price and reviews. Spoke with the front desk, reserved a room and arrived 45 minutes later. Everything from then until checkout went smoothly. The rooms were clean enough and comfortable enough to enjoy the overnight stay. The continental breakfast was the same as always and good enough. The pool and hot tub were both clean and relaxing. I noticed they sold alcohol, wine bottles small and large, single servings of liquor, and individual beers, all at a fair price between the hours of 9am-9pm (as per the local ordinance). We arrived after and left before but it was a nice offering. Wished I could have had a couple after a long drive! Id recommend if travelling from out of town like myself, as the area seemed safe enough, convenient highway access, fair priced, and enough in the area to eat, drink, shop and possible entertain.

    We took a trip up to Madison to dine at Pig in a Fur Coat and chose to stay at that Best Western. We were so impressed with the room. We thought it was a upgrade but found out it was their basic room. The room actually had a separate seating area with a couch and chairs. Wonderful. I'm an early riser so it was great having my own area to have my coffee and read without disturbing anyone else in the room who wanted to sleep in. Staff was above and beyond helpful. Plan on going back just for a little get away.

    Hotel was tired, a bit worn, but reasonably clean and convenient to the highway. It definitely could use a facelift, and was a little expensive for how "used" it seemed.

    « Good family friendly hotel »

    Stayed here for two nights with our family, 2 adults and 2 kids. Overall this is a good family friendly choice, not overly fancy but meets all the basic needs. The standard room had 2 double beds, with a couch that could be pulled out if the kids don't want to share a bed. Had a refrigerator in the room. Couple nitpicks: pillows are very small and not very supportive, and the towels tend to be on the small and thin side too. Free breakfast was average. Seemed to have less choices than other hotels. There were hot fresh made waffles. Each day there were eggs, potatoes and sausage. However there was no hot chocolate for the kids. Coffee was quite strong. Hotel has a pool. Is close off the interstate. Is right next to a small shopping mall. Drive to downtown area is about 15 minutes. front door does have a handicap opener which is helpful when entering with lots of luggage.

    From the time that I arrived and was picked up by Breanna at the airport, I was greeted by Ashley and Erica with curtesy and fast service. Breanna, Erica, and Ashley where very helpful directing me to the local restaurants and local amenities. For the two weeks that I have been staying here I looked forward every afternoon to seeing Erica, Ashley, and Breanna to lighten up the afternoon after a long day of training. I will definitely be staying at this hotel on my next visit to Madison especially with a staff like Ashley, Breanna, and Erica.

    « Nice hotel, but they've gotten stingy »

    This was our 2nd time staying at this hotel. We enjoyed it the 1st time so opted to stay again on this trip. I don't remember this hotel being so stingy with towels and other amenities. You get exactly 2 bath towels, two face towels and two washcloths. No shampoo, hand lotion, conditioner, etc. I think there were 2 bars of soap, though! Anyway, this is very unusual for a mid-range hotel; normally one can expect at least 3, and usually 4 towels (my wife uses one for hair drying and one for the rest of her). The bed was also not particularly comfortable - kind of soft and saggy, again by comparison to competing hotel properties. We'd stay again, as the rooms are very nice, clean, and quiet, and the staff is very good, but I was somewhat disappointed on this trip.

    « We would return in a heart beat! »

    We really liked it here. Air was on our room. That was very welcoming and refreshing after arriving from a very hot, and challenging day of riding our motorcycles. We had a nice and clean, large relaxing room. We enjoyed the hot tub and pool later in the evening. The breakfast was hot and offered a little bit more then usual at most hotels but very similar. It is a time saver for us so we think it is great. They had cereal, waffles, toast, scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, toast, juice, muffins, fresh fruit and so on. Parking was ok, not sure where you would park larger vehicles such as a RV. Maybe at a Plaza across the way, maybe they had more parking out back. Great parking for bikes and cars. No special covered parking or anything for motorcycles, but that is fine. Nice parking lot. We were lucky and found parking right away so we don't know what is offered for larger truck combos. Lots of nice little restaurants near by, some across the street and in walking distance. This area has some great sounding restaurants you should check out that you may need to drive too. Gas stations are close and handy too. Quiet, clean, quaint, little area of the city. We would definitely stay again in this area of Madison and at this hotel!

    We stay at this hotel numerous times a year travelling to our vacation cottage in northern Wisconsin. The hotel is clean, well-maintained, and provides a very nice complimentary breakfast of "real food." Our only issue is with checking in. There seems to be a constant change of front desk personnel. Some are very professional and welcoming. However, there are just as many if not more who just go through the motions: "I need your I.D. and credit card. Sign here. Here's your key." NOT EVEN A SMILE! Management needs to address this; it's called "Hotel Management 101" Checking out is usually much more pleasant with a middle-aged desk clerk.

    « Great room at a bargain price »

    Nice large room, with a bed, bath, desk, pull out couch and balcony. There are many other hotels in the same general area as this hotel. I stayed at this hotel because it was the cheapest by far (the cost was less than half of the other hotels in the area). I'm glad I stayed here. I got a cheap room that was clean and comfortable. LOCATION Just off of Hwy 151, located within near the East Towne Mall. There are a lot of places within a VERY short walking distance, including: KFC, Hardee's, Hooters, Pizza Hut, Panera Bread, Texas Roadhouse, Shell Gas Station, Potbelly Sandwich Shop, Dickey's Barbecue Pit. Other places within walking distance are: TGI Friday's, Red Robin, Subway, Kohl's Old Navy, Shopko, Ulta, DSW, Babies R Us, Marshalls, Party City, Burlington Coat Factory, East Towne Mall and many, many other places. You definitely don't need a car if you are staying here, as you can walk to a lot of places. TONS of restaurants within 5 minute drive: Starbucks, Chipotle, Outback Steakhouse, Chili's, Applebee's, IHOP, McDonald's, Olive Garden, Buffalo Wild Wings, Culver's, etc. ROOM Room included a refrigerator, microwave, large TV and air conditioning/heating unit in the wall. NO Safe in room. This definitely was a con for me. Clean room with lots of great lighting. Most hotel rooms don't have enough lighting, but this place is nicely well lit. The décor was a little outdated, but overall a clean room. The couch in my room was a little stained and old, but other than that, it was a comfortable room. Plenty of outlets and USB ports in the entire room. CLOSET Small closet with iron, ironing board and 10 hangers. BATHROOM There is a fan in the bathroom. This is a must-have for me. I don't like hotel bathrooms without fans. Very nice massaging shower head with adjustable settings (see my pictures). There is also a heating lamp in the bathroom, which is a nice addition. A hair dryer (Sunbeam 1500) is provided in the bathroom, but it's terrible. You are better off bringing your own hair dryer (unless you are not picky about your hair dryer). I have long hair, and it took forever to dry my hair with this hair dryer. BREAKFAST Breakfast served 6am ? 9am during the week and 7am ? 10am on weekends. Typical hotel breakfast that was nicely stocked. Items include: cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, oatmeal, toast, bagels, pastries, muffins, make your own waffles, and a different hot item each day (like eggs, bacon, sausage, etc). The breakfast staff is very efficient and attentive. They clean the tables and dining room constantly to ensure a nice experience. POOL The indoor pool is quite large for a hotel pool. There is also a large Jacuzzi/hot tub next to the pool. A lot of the guests enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi while I was there.

    The hotel is right off 90/94 with lots of restaurants near by. The room was clean and large but needs new mattresses. The toilet is small and low and should be replaced. Walls must be thin because you can hear others. The rest of the hotel has everything you need. The help are nice and attentive. Breakfast was Ok. Yes, we would stay there again. For what we paid it was a good value.

    We recently stayed at this hotel after attending a Mallards game. It was close to the ballpark and the price was good. The hotel was quiet, clean and offered a nice breakfast. The only down side is the "old school" hard mattress and worn carpet in the room. If Best Western would update those 2 items I would give it a better rating.

    Great stay! Very nice arrival greeting made us feel special. Our room décor was very nice, the beds were very comfortable and the shower area was very nice. I appreciated the parking area especially because of the utility trailer with our motorcycle on board. It was very well lighted and I could view the area right outside our room. For a large facility the convenience of several entries was appreciated. The pool and hot tub were wonderful too with ample towels, dry floors, and few swimmers. Thanks a lot for a great stay.

    « Not your average Best Western »

    This is not a typical off-the-highway Best Western. It has several floors and is more like a nice hotel you would find at a vacation area. The room was spacious, clean and very quiet. I found the back way out and there was plenty of close-by parking. The only beef I have, and many hotels are doing this, is the 1/2 pillows. They are too puffy, impossible for a side sleeper and I get a neck ache every time.

    Great priced hotel with large rooms with suites. It is a bit dated in furnishings and is seeing some wear and tear, but you can tell that it is maintained well. The hotel staff was good and there is a large area to meet in the lobby. A great feature to the hotel is the breakfast area which is large and was maintained to the highest standards. The attendant working the morning breakfast should be commended for his good work. Overall close to good eating options and quick on and off the freeway.

    We have stayed here before & will definitely stay again. The staff is always good, helpful, and the breakfast is better than most with real eggs, good sausage, fruit, waffles, yogurt, and much more. Everything in this hotel is clean. It is not super fancy, but we don't need that for overnights--and the bed and pillows were terrific. Would be nice to be able to get a pay per view movie, but that was not available, but HBO & other stations were. We had a room with a couch & 2 chairs & a desk, fridge, microwave (we were upgraded), and it worked out so well for us. I definitely recommend this hotel. Good value for the cost. If you want to stay on the East Side of WI, this is a great place to stay.

    The good is, this hotel is clean and the rooms fairly big. Mine even had a nice balcony. Everything worked and the staff seemed nice. The bad is, out bed was very hard. It also squeaked with the slightest turn- making it tough to sleep. The hot tub was also broke, so we couldn't use it. The rate was good for the area, so we might or might not give the hotel another chance.

    All shower/tubs should be equipped with handles to help getting in and out of shower/tub. Also, there should either be a shower mat for the tub bottom or upfront information that the mat is available. All of this is very important for anyone, but especially seniors. All handicapped room were already taken.

    « A treasure so close to home »

    I always assumed that the East Town Suites would cost more than it did! Granted, I used rewards points to cover the cost, but the rates otherwise are better than I have seen at some other chains of lower quality. The staff was professional and friendly, as is usual at Best Western. The hot tub was relaxing, and the breakfast area has ample seating. The location is conveniently close to the Interstate. This property is slightly less than an hour away from home, and would make another great getaway for a weekend without the kids.

    Enjoyed every aspect of this hotel. Clean, tidy, professional and helpful staff. Great breakfast, and the chef is awesome. Nice pool. I think they have a store behind the check in room where they sell snacks like icecream and beers. Althought we did not buy, the prices seemed very reasonable. Also, they had a 24 hour regular and decaf coffee in the check in area, which i used twice and greatly loved it. We will stay in this hotel again if we visited Madison.

    Stayed at this hotel largely due to location and price. It was very clean, nicely decorated, and they sell a variety of bottles of beer or glasses (or bottles!) of wine!! (Until 9pm, per law.) And for a REALLY affordable price!! What a great perk! It is so nice to be able to have a couple beverages without having to go find a liquor store and possibly have to buy a larger quantity, &/or to go to a restaurant and pay a much higher price. I would definitely go back--and recommend--due to this alone, together with the great cleanliness and comfort.

    « Best value during my cross-country trip. »

    I spent two weeks driving across the country, from California to New Jersey. I stayed at several different hotels. Out of all the hotels in which I stayed, I was most pleasantly surprised by the Best Western in Madison, Wisconsin. All of the hotels I stayed in charged between $60-110 a night. This BW East Towne Suites was right in the middle, yet it offered the most for that price. It was the only hotel that offered a balcony, a couch in the room, plus all the other amenities I found in other establishments, like an in-room fridge, microwave, etc. It also had the largest bathroom and shower. Each of these things may seem of little importance, individually, but when added together it made the room better in my estimation. Because of how much I enjoyed my stay at BW East Towne Suites, I looked for other Best Westerns to stay in for the rest of my cross-country trip.

    « Not bad, Not great.... »

    Upon arrival, the staff went through the motions of getting me checked in, but would clearly rather have been somewhere else or talking to each other rather than helping me. The condition of the flooring in the room needed to be fixed/replaced, and the Quality of the TV in the room was poor. Other than those things, the stay was un-eventful, but nothing to cheer about.

    I recently stayed at this property for seven days while I visited family. Two of those days were unexpected due to airline cancellation at the last minute. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. This hotel's appearance is date, inside and out, but do not let that keep you from staying here! It is spotless, and the quietest property I have ever stayed in. The breakfast area is spotless and kept well stocked each morning.( however, the scrambled eggs leave something to be desired??) Nonethless, I appreciated the mini mart downstairs, that you can purchase snacks, beer and wine. The hotel was always busy, but that never detracted from the service. I would definitely make this my first choice hotel for my next stay in Madison. Very conveniently located to the airport as well.

    Right off of interstate 90, next door to the mall, by many restaurants.... north of the State capital is where we stayed with 4 other couples. This hotel is fairly new and the service staff is excellent. When you can just walk into your room and be comfortable without looking around is good. That's what a $110 a night room should be like and when we stayed an extra week day night it was $97. The breakfast was really nice because someone actually cracked open and scrambled eggs, potatoes and sausage on a grill... plus there was the standard do it yourself waffle iron which is my favorite

    They sold the balcony room that I was promised on my first night of a 5 night stay. The night clerk put me in a handicap king room which was comfortable and clean. She also knocked $10.00 off the room rate. Promptly the next morning I was moved to a single queen balcony room. The maintenance man, Nick was kind enough to move my things to the new room 439. Breakfast is pretty good (food is subjective). There are scrambled eggs, sausage, gravy, biscuits, waffles, muffins, cereals, fresh fruits, yogurt choices, toast and decent coffee. The breakfast staff is very good. The room is good for one or two people although the small couch folds out it would be a squeeze for 3 people. TV has adequate cable channels. Good reception and wifi is pretty quick. Housekeeping is prompt and good. I've not mentioned how they treat my service dog as she is hospitalized here in Madison for chemotherapy and a splenectomy so she is not with me. I would return here again.

    « Dated Hotel, but Front Desk is so Nice »

    My dad, son and I stayed at Best Western East Towne Suites while passing through Madison. I chose this hotel because of the price-point and the proximity to restaurants and shopping. I'm having a bit of a hard time giving this hotel a rating of a 3/5, as the front desk staff were so nice. I think we even met the manager, and he was extremely nice as well. Because of this, I would give their customer service a definite 5/5. The reason I'm giving it a 3/5 is because the hotel seemed dated. The beds were hard, the sheets were thin, the wallpaper in the room was starting to peel, etc. The bathrooms were small, and other things showed the hotel's age, such as the thermostat being on the heater/air conditioner instead of the wall, the carpets looking somewhat old. They have put in the newer Best Western bedding, etc., though (the white bedding.) Breakfast was really good! They had hot items (eggs and biscuits, etc.) as well as cold items to choose from. There was someone constantly cleaning, too. If you like excellent customer service and don't mind a dated hotel, I would recommend this hotel. Otherwise, I'd recommend waiting until it gets a refresh.

Only downside is small bathroom. There is a nice looking indoor pool and hot tub area. Large breakfast room with free breakfast. Great location near shopping and restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only con was this. We arrived after 11 pm. When we got our key cards, we went to check into our 4th floor room. Card went in...light turned green...door opened--only partway---the security latch had been fixed by the guest already checked into this room!!! My husband went to front desk and we were promptly moved. As a former hotel employee, this is not good; however, mistakes can happen, and I would stay in this place again.

    Our stay here was not good. However, it was remedied afterwards.

I am thankful that they care enough about their customers and quality to fix the problem. We will be going through this area again soon and although I originally said we wouldn't return, after seeing how they care we just might return. Thanks for doing your best to fix a bad situation, Best Western! Original Review: The room was average. Nothing bad and nothing super outstanding. The bathroom looked like it could use some updating and the towels seemed exceptionally small. However, the bed was comfy. The room was clean. So all things considered-3 star average room. ?Breakfast was very cold (not a hint of heat) scrambled eggs, potatoes and sausages. I had to go through 6 plates before I found one without residual egg smears. It was pretty bad. The redeeming quality was the make your own waffle iron. It was just a matter of finding a clean plate for it. ?All things considered, I will not return to this location.

    Overnight stay in Madison was unremarkable. I only needed a single bed for one night while visiting family. The room was furnished with a queen bed, couch and table, desk, and limited cable TV.

Great price for the value, convenient to endless shopping and only a few minutes to downtown restaurants and the Capitol. Bathroom was a little small but had we weren't spending the weekend in there so didn't matter to us. Will definitely choose East Towne Suites again. Pet friendly too!!

    « Another satisfying stay »

    We have stayed here many times in the past. Felt lucky to find a reasonably priced room on the Wed before Thanksgiving. Clean, easy to get to from 94, friendly staff, good breakfast. Can accommodate a family of 5.

    « Average Hotel Good Price »

    I stayed at this hotel recently and it was nice. A good location but just average. I could hear the television in the next room. In fact, I didn't need to have my volume up since I had the same channel...Yes, it was that easy to hear. Fortunately, the person went to bed about the same time as me. The food was good at breakfast and the staff were great. I probably would stay again because of the location and food and staff.

    « Best Western East Towne Suites, Madison, WI »

    We stayed at the Best Western in Wisconsin on our trip to Mayo Clinic in Rochester, WI. Everything was excellent to very good. We were satisfied with the value and the room which we were assigned. Breakfast was good for a hotel.

    « Just a nite out »

    The wife and I had to spend a night in Madison and stayed here. Very clean, staff very friendly. Room was comfortable and cozy, bathroom a little small. Pool area nice and clean. Morning breakfast was great, waffles, eggs, ham, potatoes and sausage gravy and biscuits. Also fruit and healthy choices. Some construction people were staying thought at 6 am when they open would be slow. But there was plenty to go around. Only issue was in the morning around 5 or so the garbage truck came and woke me up. Lots of banging.

    « Pleasant »

    Check-in and out was simple. The room was nice and spacious. Free in room WiFi was a necessity. The shower was short. Arriving late at night, the parking lot wasn't well lit. The hot breakfast was good; wished they had bacon instead of sausage. Overall, it was stay was pleasant.

    « Second visit »

    Our second visit to this site. First time were more impressed than this time. This time the room seemed to be laid out differently. The bed was so close to the air conditioning unit you could just get through to go to bed. The bathroom was so small that you could just shut the door. The breakfast had 2 of the 4 juice choices empty (the best ones) and there was no pancake batter. They give Best Western points but will not redeem them for anything except the lowest priced room.

    « What I Expected »

    I've stayed at several Best Western and so far they have all been great. This location was no exception. It was located close to the freeway, for getting around and there were many options near by to eat. Room was clean and breakfast was great.

    « Great place to stay EXCEPT for the HVAC »

    This is a conveniently located hotel for the business that drew me to Madison. Overall hotel sound proofing is excellent and bed is like being home. Unfortunately the HVAC system has aged badly. The fan level on low produces a rumble comparable to and old VW idling in the room. We simply turned it off to sleep and piled on blankets from the car to avoid hypothermia. When questioned the housekeeping staff advised that most of the room fans sound like the one in our room.

    « Second time just as good as the first... »

    This was our second time staying here, the first time was with our 3 year old. Both times we could not be more pleased with our stay. The only thing holding me back from a 5 rating was how cold the pool was... it was seriously chilly. We will definitely be sure to stay here again when the need arises!

    « Great service »

    Hotel staff was excellent. The Reservation Manager went out of his way to help me resolve an issue that I had with hotels.com. This Best Western was extremely clean. Breakfast was no frills and very good. I'd definitely stay at this Best Western property again!

    « A Really Nice Place To Stay »

    This is a mighty nice place to stay. We had a big double room with a good bed. The hot breakfast was more than expected. I was very impressed with the helpful staff. The location which was near the interstate was close to lots of resturants and shopping.

    « Nice experience »

    A good hotel for the price. I was attending a conference at this location. My room was clean and the staff was friendly. The service for the conference room seemed to be adequate for our needs. The only thing I'd recommend is bring your own pillow and breakfast is a bit on the "frugal" side.

    « Exceptional Value »

    The quality rooms, hot breakfast with waffles, eggs, sausage, as well as the locational convenience make this a great value! We stayed over Homecoming weekend and it was perfect and easy on the pocketbook.

    « Long-time Reliable Madison Choice »

    All accommodations are one- or two-room suites and many have balconies or patios. Check-in is unbelievably efficient. This is an older, extremely well-built facility. It is also well kept and noticeably quiet. The pool area is very attractive, not just a little pool stuck on the end of the building like a lot of today's cookie-cutter highway hotels. The complimentary breakfast is actually real breakfast food from a real kitchen: scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, etc. The location is just off the interstates and attached to a shopping mall. There are at least a dozen restaurants within walking distance. Downtown and the state capitol are just a couple miles or so west. It's somewhat farther to the UW university campus but not that difficult to reach. Dogs are welcome, although the nightly $20 fee is excessive. Kids do more damage but are free! We have stayed here many times travelling through Madison. It's a hard to beat value.

    « Visiting our college student »

    We would have perferred to be closer to UW Madison where we were visiting our college student. But since hotels were scarce, we were happy to find this hotel right off of the highway and near Washington Street, a 15 minute drive to the capitol, and the UW Campus. Since the Hotel is near East Towne Mall, we took advantage and went shopping for our daughter at Home Depot, and Old Navy. This is a pet friendly hotel, and we were put in a first floor room where, we found out, is where most pets with their owners are put. The staff was very understanding of my husbands allergies and moved us up to the 4th floor. Could have used an extra towel. Otherwise, nice staff, breakfast, & room (on 4th floor).

    « Better than Average Hotel! »

    We stayed here during while attending a football game. There was nothing to complain about, the hotel seamed to be kept up nicely, and the pool/hot tub area was nice and bright. The breakfast had warm options like eggs and sausage. Would stay here again!

    « Cheap service »

    There was no lotion left in the bathroom; just a shampoo/conditioner combination and a couple of small soaps. I called front desk and ask them if they could send up lotion. They said they do not provide that but they sell it for $2.00!!! I did not expect such a response from a hotel where they charge over $130.00 for their rooms. Such a cheap service. Even Motel 6 gives you one of those tiny lotion bottles!!!

    « Great Deal! »

    We were just passing through and needed a night to stay. We made reservations for 2 beds for 4 people. The hotel was very easy to find being off the highway. The Hotel was bit old looking but the suite and facilities were clean and neat. The room was a very good size room and had a couch so that the non-couple pair didn't have to share a bed. The swimming pool was good and relaxing. The breakfast was good and well stocked. Nice location-easy access to several restaurants and back to the interstate.

    « Outstanding service! »

    We came on a Badgers game weekend - but we came for a wedding. They had to be totally booked but yet we still got early ck in @ late ck out! Included was a "continental breakfast" well.... This was way more than a continental brkfst-- hot eggs, potatoes, sausage plus waffles & of course all the ususl drinks & cereals! There were 2 people that made sure everything was stocked & clean! I dont think they stopped moving the whole time we were eating!!! This best western goes above & beyond!!!! Thank you for a great stay!

    « Hotel needs to be updated »

    This hotel has small bathrooms that have mold growing in the tub area and poor water pressure. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable compared to other hotels in the same price range. The breakfast lacks variety - no yogurt, pastry, only one waffle maker, etc. We were supposed to have an upgraded King suite, only to find out we had queen beds. But, we could get a King bed for an additional fee- really??

    « Excellent visit »

    Very new motel. Excellent location. Many restaurants within walking distance. Had problem with internet. Not sure it was the hotels fault or elsewhere. Breakfast very crowded in morning with college team staying there, but seemed to have extra staff on hand to help handle the crowd. Food choices were excellent.

    « Great location »

    Quiet even though right by highway and mall. Easy access in and out. Room nice and bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was hot, good and they also have a small store that had decent prices. Would stay again and recommend.

    « a good stopping place »

    We stopped hear as a half way point on a trip to northern Wisconsin. This is a better than average hotel with a very comfortable room and bed. The breakfast which is included was also better than average. The location is very convenient to I-90/94 and there are a number of good restaurants in the area.
