The location served a purpose of providing a room, overall the area was noisy being close to the highway, serveral gas stations

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by bear1998 Don't forget your credit card???
Took us 40 minutes to check in because she had a hard time pulling up the info from our past stay a month ago. She did not know how to handle cash. Never saw a new $100.00 US bill before. Not a hassle you want after travelling all day long. Shower curtain was dirty.
But I went down for coffee and forgot our room number. I went to the desk to ask what room I was in and was happy that she asked for my ID before she told me my room number. Shows they are safety minded

The hotel was clean and quiet, I would suggest to anyone staying though, that they let the front desk know what time they plan on checking out so housekeeping does not show up too early.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sonny2014 Very Good Breakfast
The motel was in a good location so we could get up to Wisconsin Dells to watch our grand daughter play volleyball.. I enjoy eating at the rest. that was close by...and the rooms were comfortable.. The coffee is great and so are the cinnamon rolls...The weather was not too good, but there is nothing you can do about that..

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LeisureTime Improvement Needed
My visit to this location was to rest and recharge while out of town. I achieved neither as the hotel was unable to request that the other guests respect others needs for a period of quiet. By no means is this an unreasonable request as the noise continued past midnight with a wrestling team running up and down the halls and stairwells until early in the morning. I made a request to the front desk, which they said they would address it, but never succeeded in it. I am not sure if they spoke to those causing the disruption or not, but looking at final result, it is irrelevant as the noise continued.
There are a lot of properties in/around Madison, my personal recommendation based on my experience is to look into one other than this one. The rate paid is not even close to a direct reflection on the experience you will have.

Okay hotel just off the interstate. Manager was friendly. Stay here about 5 times a year. I'll be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Walter52 Very acceptable
All good. This pretty much what I expect from HI Express. Room price is at the high end of the reasonable range, but not necessarily outside the range. I would stay here again.

I have been staying at this hotel for business for the last four months. For its price and amenities, it is a good value. The staff are very friendly. During the polar vortex where temperature dropped to -20, the rental car did not start. The women that runs the breakfast room helped out by assisting in jump starting the car.
The only faults that I have would be the lack of healthier foods for breakfast (more fruit) and the TV service. The TV service was okay before, they had switched to HD service from Charter; and now the channels selection and quality are worse.

The overall experience was good. One suggestion would be to lower the temp in eating area and lobby. Breakfast lady was awesome!

I always love my stay at the Holiday Inn, during road trips. It's the cinnamon rolls that keep me coming back. The pillows at this particular hotel were a little below standard, but everything else was top notch.

last year when we stayed here every thing was very good. We preferably stay here because this hotel excepts dogs.
It was just very noisy due to the wedding party

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BenJoni Dog and people friendly.
We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express near DeForest, WI. The staff was friendly, courteous, and very professional. We chose this location due to the easy on/off of the interstate. We were pleasantly surprised to find people were allowed to bring their dogs. (We had left ours at home.)
We will definitely stay at the DeForest, Wisconsin location again. Next time we will bring our dogs along. It is nice to know there are affordable places that are dog friendly.
We will definitely let all of our family and friends know that Holiday Inn Express is pet friendly and people friendly too.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. Dec. 2013

We stayed during the drive "home from Grandpa's house" just before Christmas, just ahead of, and behind, a couple storms. I was pretty worn out from the road.
Friendly, welcoming Staff. Clean, comfortable room.
Was especially thankful for the employees looking after us on a Holiday.

As a business manager, I travel a lot and stay at a variety of nice motels. I would have to say that the my recent stay at the Deforest, WI Holiday Inn Express was one of the best motels I have stayed at this year. The staff was welcoming, easy check in and check out, nice breakfast. The bed comfort was excellent and the room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. I was also impressed how quiet the heating and cooling units was. It made for a peaceful, quiet, relaxing and restful night. If I travel in the Madison area again, this motel will be my first choice place.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by NTBeer Great night's sleep
Mattress was comfy, and this hotel had the most comfortable pillows I have had at a property in quite some time. On the minus side, the bathroom fan was noisy as others have stated, and for some reason the screws holding the iron / ironing board to the wall let loose during the night. Obviously a freak occurence which could happen anywhere, so no points deducted. Older property, so not a lot of electrical outlets available for todays devices. Not a lot of dining options in the immediate area (fast food only), but close enought ot the East Towne area for most people. Recommended.

Didn't appreciate the added $60 a night from the normal rate and the refusal to give me the wedding group rate.
Room smelled like cigarettes.
Front desk crew not friendly but rest of staff were very kind.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Terry26101 maid service
room was clean and comfortable but the maid did not leave any soap or shampoo. When we asked the front desk she was polite but did not know where to find the products she had to call her boss, we finally had the product two hours later. total experience seemed to have a lack of detail. Not the norm for HI Express.
