Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kcrdta My best nights sleep in years
I stayed while on a bussiness trip and after a long day of training it was nice to be able to catch a shuttle to a restaurant and not worry about being driven the scenic route by a cab driver. I also enjoyed how comfortable the beds were. Only downside is if you are a napper ask for a room that is along the outside of the building the kids in the pool can get loud, but i enjoyed hearing them play.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clay26 Good for small kids
This was a good get-away for the family, including kids ages 3 and 6. Like other reviews, this isn't a huge "waterpark" like you would find in Wisconsin Dells, but if you have kids under 10 the pool area is a good size. The price was reasonable and the staff were welcoming. If your primary reason to visit this property is to use the pool area, I highly recommend reserving a room with "waterpark access" - it avoids tracking through the lobby/common areas to and from the pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy12123 Good place for family getaway or business travel
Waterpark is excellent for younger children. Great kids suite with pool access and patio. Adjacent Benvenutos is a great value when kids eat free. Location isn't within walking distance of shopping etc. but wasn't a factor for this trip.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kimtraveller Great location and property
I always enjoy staying at this location when I am in Madison. Easy access to Madison, good shopping around, and extremely friendly staff.
The only downside recently is the mini-water park at this location is bringing in a lot of families with a lot of kids. Makes it kind of noisy at times and lots of kids running through the halls at all hours of the day or night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stacie352 Great Bartender
I really enjoyed having Allison for my bartender each week that I have been there! She is quiet but very friendly. Thanks Allison!!
The only negative on the room is the poor water pressure/delay in hot water which just isn't really anything the staff can do about.
The Shuttle service is OUTSTANDING!!! Thanks for all you do Kevin!

The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. I liked the number pillows and the different firmness of the pillows. The one down fall is there is not much to do in the area of the hotel. Having to take shuttles or taxis where you want go.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hinks3 The staff at this hotel was fantastic!
I am a travel agent and a first time guest at this property. I will certainly recommend this hotel to my clients. The staff was great! When we went to the hotel it was full the night before and was flipping to a complete new guest list on Sat. when we arrived. The front desk was wonderful to work with even with all the commotion of checking out and checking in. We were not able to check in until right at check in time, but that was fine, they handle it great and was very accommodating through our stay!
Pool area was very busy when we were there, but very nice. The pool area is smaller and sometimes that is ok! My son that is 7 had a ball there! We are certainly going back!!! It has just the right size water slide for a first timer and mom and dad too. lol
All in all this was a very relaxing stay and that is exactly what we were looking for. Thank you Holiday Inn and Cameron. You did great!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyGma6 Nice to be in the "penthouse"
Had a great overnite in great accommodations.
The only difficulty we had was controllling the temp...it was a tad warm and couldn't get it cooled down. There for such a short time that we just dismissed the issue.
Never stayed on the 4th floor with the "tall" ceilings and wondered if that was part of the issue.
None the less, our stay was once again WONDERFUL as we enjoy this Madison location.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by golfpro Not for business
I travel for business and use the internet 2-3 hours each evening for work. Between getting disconnected and slow speed when I was connected, makes it impossible to stay here.
Had to swap rooms from executive floor to an older, 1st floor room to get a connection and HD was not working in the 4th
floor room. New room had a dirty fridge. My rate was not changed with the room change.
Staff was great, but they aren't able to fix poor internet and TV service.
They charge for a safe being in the room...seriously?

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mickey16 Great weekend getaway...maybe not in the winter!
Our family loves this hotel. The only problem we had this visit was that the water park was VERY cold (the air temp & water temp)! As my husband pointed out, had they heated the room adequately, there would have been condensation on the windows, which there was none of. It was bad enough that my 1 year old had blue lips after an hour and had to get out...not what we wanted. I don't know if they were having issues because the hallway out of our room seemed to have the air conditioning on as well. We've been to this hotel before, and will most likely go back, however we may find a different place to go when the weather is cold.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CMR122 Okay, just Okay.
The hotel was nice but nothing amazing. Service was ok. We were there for a weekend (Fri-Sun) and on Sunday the pool was closed due to high chlorine issues. It was so bad that when you walked into the pool area it burned your eyes. This was frustrating as that was the whole reason for me booking the hotel, for the kids to swim in the waterpark/pool. Then the day we were leaving the hotel staff knocked on our door 3 times to see about cleaning our room. Why in the world wouldn't they just wait until we checked out as they knew we were leaving?? It's hard enough to get out of a hotel being a single mom with 2 little kids but when someone continues to interrupt, makes it even more difficult. When I booked the room the guy I spoke with on the phone through Holiday Inn, Jim, promised this room had a King bed and he also said it had no pull out couch. Well, no king bed but fortunately it did have a pull out. Also, there was a bug in our bathroom the 1st morning we were there. It was a decent stay, just some very frustrating points.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CountryEd Stayed on business for Epic training
I stayed here for two nights. The staff were helpful and friendly. The room was clean and contained a fridge, coffee maker, and microwave. Very handy for leftovers. The Italian restaurant attached offered plenty of good food at the right price. I liked the food enough the first night to go there again on my second night. The free breakfast buffet was a nice quick tasty hot breakfast. Join their Priority Club rewards, this will give you two free drinks during your stay.
I am coming back twice more in the next month so I will see what different rooms are like.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MkeAst We'd visit again.
We went here for a mini-vacation with our three young boys. They loved playing in the waterpark. A few things to note, in case you wouldn't have already thought of them:
1. There is no continental breakfast.
2. The pool does not open until 9:00 am on weekdays. This seems like an eternity to wait when you're 5 years old or younger!
3. Check your credit card charges. We were charged for something (still don't know what it was) and I had to call the front desk to dispute it. They were courteous and it took care of it but it was still slightly irritating.

The experience of staying was great, all staff members were friendly, room was always spotless, and the stay was perfect. However, Samantha always made me feel as if she remembered me and I was a part of her family. They all go above and beyond.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jrc6805 Customer Service Second to none.
As frequent visitors to the Madison West area, my wife and I have tried other hotels in the area. But not since arriving at the Holiday Inn Madison West. All of the staff there, especially Vijay and Marquez at the front desk. Our Jacuzzi Suite was exactly what we needed this last visit and we will surely return to the Holiday Inn Madison West each and every visit to the area. The hotel is well-kept and all the staff are very friendly and helpful. Even the other rooms we have used, not Jacuzzi Suites, were always clean and well-stocked. Everything any traveler could wish for is within ten minutes or less of this hotel. The surrounding area is also well-kept and inviting.
Many thanks to Vijay, Marquez, and their staff for making our stays in Madison the best they can be. We will surely return soon.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Grandma56 Birthday Party a waste of money
The cost of having a birthday party at this location is absurd. The room they provided for the party itself was so small, once everyone squeezed in and was seated, there wasn't even room for them to get up and go back for more pizza. I would have been better off just booking a room and having the party at the tables outside the pool side rooms. And my birthday host? Couldn't understand anything he said and was of no help at all. At one point he just disappeared and we never saw him again. Don't get sucked into hosting a birthday party here!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lauraj never again
We always stay at a Holiday Inn and we were in Madison for the birth of our first grandchild. When we got to the hotel there was no one at the front desk and we waited a few minutes for some one to show up and he had an attitude. You could tell he didn't want to to be working on new years eve. We were not recognized as priority club members. I reserved a room with a king size bed with a pull out couch but we were given a room with no couch only a chair. The next morning we went downstairs to eat breakfast and decided to order off the menu instead of the buffet and we waited a half hour for our food and when they brought it to our table the food was lukewarm. We spent 3 nights in Madison but found another hotel for the last 2 night.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LovetoCamp Kids Suite Room was a disappointment
We stayed at this Holiday Inn for New Years because of the special that was provided; this was our 2nd visit.
However, this room was not maintained very well....
1) The furnace ran all night because of the cold draft that was coming in around the furnace enclosure; the thermostat is built into the furnace, so it was thinking the room was too cold. The only way to stop the furnace was to shut it off, but then the room would get too cold. Lets just say, we slept in a room that was like a sauna or an igloo.
2) The coffee pot was broken.
3) One of the lights was literally coming off the wall in the kids bunk area, needless to say, it did not work either.
We did ask for a different room, unfortunately, all the Kids Suites were taken. We were truly disappointed with our stay at this hotel.
