We choose this hotel due to the availability of two separate bedrooms which made it great for a family with two older kids needing space. Having a living room with sleeper sofa and full kitchen was a plus. Rooms didn't feel clean when we arrived as we found a balled up set of sheets stuffed in the bedroom drawer. Bathroom floor was dirty - it didn't pass the wet towel "wipe" test - the towel came up dirty. Shower curtain was filthy but staff replaced it with a new one upon our complaint. There are dresser drawers but only one closet in the living room (none in bedrooms). Breakfast was good (free) and staff person working in the breakfest area was full of energy and very helpful. My daughter was disappointed that the TV didn't have Disney Channel. Hotel has an indoor pool and basketball court. Parking lot filled up every night and was empty every early so I imagine the hotel is home to people who live there and go to work each morning. The hotel distance to downtown Madison is about 20 minutes - seems like it shouldn't take that long but the road to downtown has lots of lights.
Overall - our stay was pretty average and not a stay I would brag to anyone about. If I return to Madison I would probably look for a different hotel before this one, but If I couldn't find a two-bedroom hotel anywhere else I could live with this one if only for the extra space.

... the pack up job. We're not ready to pull out of here first thing in the morning, but we won't have much to pack up.
Since I've been up so long, I'm tired and yes I know that Bob gets up early also, but he does take a few naps during the day and sleeps better than I do. So we will start getting ready to break camp so we can get out of here at a leisurely pace tomorrow morning. Tomorrow night we will be in Utica, IL. ...
... 300 and don't really fit in the slot, so I finally was able to talk him out of that. After looking at a few more small things, we went outside to look at a few large things. They have about 50 show coaches. In all honesty I really didn't see anything I really wanted, but then I haven't looked at all of them. Fortunately the ones I think I would like are way out of our reach and I'm smart enough not to reach for one. Since we have done so much to this one, we ...
... we should be using half a gallon per hour with a full load (both AC, Microwave, etc), so I'm thinking we are not using that much. Guess we'll know in a few days since it won't work once we get down to a quarter of a tank of gas.
We walked around the grounds today to get the lay of the land. We also met up with some other members of the chapter and drove down to the capitol square to walk around downtown. After a ...
... the rays of the sun. In Ohio we also saw apple orchards, with their crooked, arthritic branches twisting in different directions and reaching painfully for the ground as if to take root there.
An interesting observation this trip…those semi trucks that pull the big hauls are now towing THREE trailers behind them. Three. Most of them were UPS and Fed Ex. And it appears that they are only allowed to do this on the highway, because we ...
... my second passport that we left at my grand mother's. Oops! Haha!
We got it back. I am sitting at the terminal waiting to be let in. There is this rude guy that was swearing and saying nasty things, so my father called me over to get away. I sat down once again and started to draw in my sketch book. After getting several dirty looks from people for is fowl language especially in the presence of a minor, he came over to me and presented me with a black ...
