Great views from the Balcony

Pros: We had a great location and great views. The staff was friendly and the room was clean.
Cons: The decor was dated, but clean and adequate.
We enjoyed our stay in Madison and nearby Clifty Falls State Park.

Room with a beautiful view

Pros: Our room view was awesome
Cons: breakfast was lacking and we could not adjust the air to at least blow a fan and our room got up to 80.
Location: So nice at the edge of Madison's main street.
The view of Madison was fantastic! The room was strange in that it had a hot tub in the bedroom as well as the bathroom. The bed was comfortable although we could not figure out the heat/air switch so the room got up to 80 in November and we slept with the sliding glass door open it was so hot! The breakfast was so-so, no hot food at all so that was a let down. Just cold begals, hard boiled eggs, cold ceral and donuts. Seems like at least on weekends they would provide a nicer breakfast especially during events like the Candlelight home tour. All-in-all we'd stay again because of the view and closness to downtown.
