Stay close to the top things to do in Middleton, Madison, and beyond

Situated just 20 minutes west of downtown Madison, the Country Inn & Suites in Middleton offers comfortable rooms and suites only a stone’s throw away from the area’s best things to do. From our hotel off Route 12, you can go fishing at Lake Mendota, meet the animals at the Henry Vilas Zoo, or discover the hidden beauty of the Pheasant Branch Conservancy trail.

If you’re here with colleagues, consider a team-building trip to the Capital Brewery facility or the batting cages at Hitters SportsPlex. Corporate travelers appreciate our location right in the heart of Middleton’s business district. Families can take the kids to Bob Suter’s Capitol Ice Arena for hockey action or wander through the Madison Children’s Museum. We’re also within 15 minutes of the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
