Our story really began as we were on our way to Kentucky on Wednesday, April 12. Two hours away from home, the battery light came on, so I brought the car to O'Reilly's in Janesville, where they diagnosed the problem as a dead alternator and said we were basically running off of the battery. Not really knowing how much power...

We stayed at The Magnuson Grand Hotel in Madison while attending the State Youth Wrestling Tournament at the Alliant Energy Center. We were treated with the utmost respect by Natasha the Manager. She switched our rooms so we could be near our son. She was so accommodating! So pleasant! Then our son's car didn't start on Sunday. They couldn't find...

This hotel has a very nice hot breakfast, a friendly staff and is very clean. The front desk helped me find something to do around town and who to order pizza from. I think the place was Rossoti's. The hot tub and pool were also well used by the kids.

We stayed here for a little couple's getaway. We chose this hotel because we it was close the casino and it had a whirlpool suite and they gave us $10 per person Rewards Play at the casino per day that we stayed. In the hotel lobby, they had both candles and incense burning. It kind of made me wonder what...

Though I'm glad you enjoyed our location being so close to the casino as well as our whirlpool suite, I wish the rest of your stay was just as big of a hit. I'm so sorry our breakfast let you down. As you mentioned, a few of our breakfast machines were giving us trouble that week, and I apologize if...

Great value and location at this value property. The price was exceptional and the room was very clean and comfortable. Two of my favorite room features included the fancy shower head and the comfortable mattress. I also enjoyed the fancy coffee maker and the fact that there was an in room refrigerator and microwave.

Super experience. Clean, fresh smelling facility. Room was spacious and spotless. It's a quirk, but the towels matter to me and this hotel has nice thick ones that don't have that burned in the dryer smell that seems to accompany rooms at this rate level. Overall an A= experience. Nearby Road House had very good burgers and more friendly service....
