The lobby was updated and looked great but everywhere else in the hotel needs to be fixed and remodeled. Water leaking from our friends window which was taped up with duct tape. We had to change rooms and moved to a different floor because sewer gases were overpowering our floor. Not all rooms have a refrigerator. Ice machines only worked...

The other recent one star reviews are on point. The properties better days are in the past. The room is badly needed of an update. The room temperature was a constant 63F. With most of the cool February drafts coing from the poorly insulated windows. We asked for help and they fiddled with the thermostat and we went out for...

This is a nice, clean hotel in a convenient location to shopping and dining. It has the look and feel of a typical Crown Plaza. I really liked the pool area. The workout room was slightly above average for a hotel but not for a Crown Plaza. Chick-fil-a is really close! But the front desk staff at check in was...

Disappointment is the word. Stayed here a year ago it was much better than today. Club level means nothing - breakfast is now a $13 breakfast buffet with cold eggs and so so other food. Go to McDonalds or Chick fa la which are within walking distance. Also - Starbucks located in the lobby is coffee or tea only. Walked...

Obviously an old hotel but I don't have anything against all hotels. The problem is the window sealed with doc tape in my room. And then the room service glass of wine delivered with lipstick stains on it. Just awful

Well we've finally decided to avoid this property when we come to Madison, WI. Although the rates can be reasonable, especially with the Entertainment Card, the property is worn & tired. It needs someone to make an investment and bring it up to the quality that are higher standards of normal Crowne Plazas. The big draw should be the large...

For the cost, there isn't even a microwave or fridge in the room. Motel 6 anyone?? Then the hallway to our room was nasty, smelled like feces in room. Hairball from the drain on side of tub. Horrible.

This hotel is old, tired, dirty, and stinky. Yes stinky. The hallway to the rooms smells like an open sewer. When this was brought to the front desk person's attention, was told we know. However nothing is being done about it. There are signs of leaks in the ceilings and walls all over the place. The carpet in my room...

I was informed during check-in that this hotel doesn't have ANY Queen beds- only double beds. No continental breakfast, no coffee in the morning. They've sold out and put a Starbucks in the lobby. The coffee machine in the room literally melted the coffe pod during brewing. No mini-refrigerator or microwave in the room. This hotel looks upscale but it's...
