Great throwback Feel.
Ruby Marie is our Madison "Go To". Consistently clean, super friendly staff and a great throwback feel. We also love the short walk to the square and all that we can enjoy there.

Ruby Marie Hotel - A work in Progress!!
The hotel room was average - with a great shower. There were stains on the carpet,but otherwise the room was clean. During our first night part of the high wall air conditioner fell while we were sleeping. The management fixed that the next morning. The complimentary continental breakfast was OK with pastries that did not seem fresh and microwaved eggs. The second morning's complimentary breakfast was in a bar a few doors down - not sure it's connection with the hotel but we found it unclean and very "bar like" with lingering bar odor. The food was OK and the waitress was pleasant. The noise is a problem at the hotel since there is a bar on the first floor with an inside courtyard with room windows all around it. There is live music at the bar most nights; but I will say that after 10:30 they did quiet things down a bit and we were able to sleep. Complimentary ear plugs were provided. The location of the hotel was awesome - we parked our car and walked everywhere we wanted to go in downtown Madison. That was the best thing about our stay - that and the great shower! Also, we found the management and employees to be very kind and polite. I am hoping that this renovation is a work in progress and things get better!

Very good 8.0
Good overall, with some opportunities to improve
Fantastic service. People go out of their way to help. Charming B&B. - Wonderful old world charm - Very happy employees. They went out of their way to help with information for me, as a first time Madison traveler - The up-north bar, the included bar drinks, and the bartenders provide a wonderful family-friendly experience. - Clean bathrooms Things to consider improvements in: - Linen and bed covers/carpet in the room: These were old and someone with allergies would have a hard time dealing with these. - Requested an umbrella during a rainy day. They have one, I believe which a guest borrowed and did not return. Maybe consider storing a few more of these and charging guests that do not return them? - The included breakfast is very low key and carb heavy. Consider including a hot breakfast (eggs and fare) as part of the B&B experience a lot of similar 'hotels' offer across the country? - Wi-fi is included but it is very slow. It is good for emails and stuff, but sessions were timing out more often than I would like. Certainly not sufficient for streaming anything.
