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.

... with a Wisconsin cow. Not that they look anything different to England's but I was told Wisconsin is the land of cheese and cows & I've had plenty of the cheese its time for the cows! Wendy had spoke to someone that was going to let us on his dairy farm here in Dodgeville which was exciting. We had a spot of lunch first in a place called the cooks room just down in town then we headed over to the farm. Wendy knocked at the house door but she said the guy we needed ...
Yesterday was the official first day of the rally. The day was full of seminars. I started the day listening to a guy explain the difference between 30 amps and 50 amps is 70!! Seems that the 50 amp plugs have to hot lines and each one is 50 amps (one line runs the front of the coach and the other runs the back). That equals 100 amps. So if you subtract 30 from 100 you have 70. Simple, huh? Sounds good though. He also spoke about safety equipment we should have for ...
After a great week at the Education in Botanic Gardens Congress, we bade farewell to St Louis and crossed the Mississippi River from Missouri into Illinois and headed north. This is the farming land of the mid-west so, apart from skirting a couple of larger towns, we drove for 5 hours along freeways bordered by freshly plowed fields. We saw plenty of large farm vehicles working but very few hills. ...
Have I mentioned yet that we're really doing this? Sorry, I just have to pinch myself because it's sinking in more and more. We spent the weekend moving a load of stuff to my Dad's basement in Appleton, and then went to Green Bay yesterday to tailgate with family and go to the Packer game. Lambeau Field is one of the most magical places I've ever been to. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. Walking in there and looking ...
... gas we had 6 curves in the road. The off and on ramps. That's it. Straight as it looks on the map. And nothing but hay and corn. The sunflowers were still standing but they had seen brighter days. Speed limit thru these parts is 70mph. We cruised at 85-95 from gas station to gas station. I was getting really low on gas on our third stop and figured I would be empty any time. And no station in view. Just as ...
