9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Clean room, great location and views, conscientious staff.
Cons:Limited cable options, unnecessary housekeeping occurred/disturbed when not requested.
8.8 Very good
Pros:Beautiful view!!!! Amazing location Convenient restaurant on site with overall delicious food
Cons:Room humid, even with A/C on Weak water pressure in shower
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Great location, room, friendly staff and really appreciated hotel shuttle.
5.7 Fair
Pros:Funny how the other negative review I read came true. We had a reservation for a lake view and when we checked in we had to walk to another building only to find a view not of the lake but of a parking area and garbage bins. It took them 30 minutes to gets a room with a view of the lake as printed on our reservation. Make sure it is all set when you check in.
Cons:Bed was uncomfortable and linens were not luxury linens. Once we got the kind of room promised on our reservation, we discovered the main ventillation system was located on the lake side of the building (really?!) and even though we were five stories above it, we couldn't open our window without hearing it. Also, room air conditioning blew right towards the bed. I love sleeping in a colder room, but constant moving cold air isn't pleasant. This hotel needs some management and property attention. Too bad because Madison is a nice town and deserves better.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Friendly staff. Clean. Gorgeous view. Delicious breakfast overlooking the water.
Cons:Sheridan has more comfortable beds for less than half the price.
7.7 Good
Pros:Dining choices and the university are within easy walking distance. The staff is very accommodating.
Cons:I wish they had told me before we made the reservation that parking costs $18.00 per day. Hot water after running faucet for a full five minutes on upper floors.
9.7 Wonderful
Pros:Cordial, helpful staff. Prime location right on the lake. Beautiful rooms with great amenities.
Cons:Pricey - you're paying a premium price, though you do get what you pay for!!!
