The James Madison is a very nice small hotel. However, it is not a bed and breadfast. The breakfast was a very nice continental breakfast similiar to a nice Hampton Inn. I rated the dining as below average as it relates to my expectations of a bed & breakfast experience.

Thank you so much for your feedback surrounding your stay at The James Madison Inn. I hate that your expectations were that of traditional bed and breakfast. We have only ever presented ourself as boutique inn located in a historic, downtown setting, and would never intend to mislead any potential guest as to who we are and what we offer. I hope that your review and this response would only further clarify this point for any other potential guests. The pleasure would be ours for you, once again, to be our guest should you find yourself in the Madison-area again.

A girlfriend and I traveled from North Atlanta to the James Madison Inn for a quick overnight trip. The Inn is gorgeous, the staff outstanding and our stay was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed both dinner and lunch at the restaurant, and we would strongly recommend this hotel for anyone wanting a 5-star experience at a very affordable price.

We spent two nights there in April of this year. It is a beautiful hotel, perfectly located to restaurants and shops. The rooms are large, comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the afternoons overlooking a neighborhood park. The breakfasts are very good and hearty. We would definitely stay there again!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Fantastic room, very comfortable. Our room overlooked the park where there was a charity music festival going on which gave a good impression of Madison and provided a party/community atmosphere around the place when we arrived in the afternoon. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Madison was lovely (it was our first visit), with acres of that southern charm and rare 'old' beautiful buildings. We had an early dinner at Town 220 which has great food and then had a stroll around the nearby streets in the evening. The locomotives do run throughout the night. Yes they're noisy, but we actually loved it. It's just another local feature that adds to Madison's quirkiness. There was a good choice of food for breakfast as well to set you up for the day or for that long drive home. All in all, superb. We'll definately consider staying at The James Madison again.

We had a fantastic stay at the JM! The room was great. We stayed on the park side 1st floor. It was quiet despite what other reviews say. We also ate at the restaurant right next to the Inn; Town 220. It was outstanding.

The Madison Inn is a lovely quick getaway from Atlanta. Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Everything was spotless and very comfortable. One suggestion, book a room with a building view. We chose the park view, and were located next to a very busy road. That was a little bothersome.

We really enjoyed our stay at the James Madison Inn! The staff was amazing and extremely helpful. The only thing I would change is the room in which we stayed. We were on the street level and it was quite noisy during the night with trucks driving through. I think being on the second floor would have been better.

As if Madison is not beautiful enough, this inn is charming. Breakfast was wonderful. The hotel is ideally located close to shops and restaurants. We would highly recommend a meal at 220 or the ChopHouse.

We loved our suite, which we shared with our ten year old boy. There was plenty of room! The breakfast each morning was very nice. The location is great, because you can walk to everything in historic downtown Madison.

We can't wait to go back! The hotel itself is gorgeous and very relaxing. The staff really went above and beyond with champagne chilled and waiting on us when we got there to celebrate our anniversary. It was very quiet except for the train which only went by once while we were there and actually sounded very romantic to me. We had dinner at the restaurant right behind the hotel which included a free dessert - the crème brulee was amazing. Our entire trip was perfect!

The James Madison Inn represents the town it was named for in every way. Classic styling, warm comfortable rooms and great attention to details - right down to the books left in each room. Its my favorite get-away, and if you love history and historical architecture, this hotel and Madison Ga should be on your list.

The inn was lovely, the staff friendly and helpful, but the breakfast was not as nice as one of the chains. It was set up buffet style--waffles, a small amount of bacon or sausage, and slivers of quiche there was some fruit and yoghurt and bread to toast. The first morning we had to wait 10--15 minutes for more quiche and sausage--which weren't hot. The room was beautiful and spacious which helped compensate for the lack of breakfast.

I went back to Madison for a class reunion and stayed at The James Madison Inn for the weekend and was blown away by this place. Madison is a beautiful little town with lots of history and old southern charm, but this inn was the cherry on the top. Great!!

What a beautiful and quiet hotel. The decor is amazing, and the service exceeded my expectations. Being a hospitality manager, I was very impressed and am already planning a return trip to see more rich history in the area. I will be staying at this little gem ! The only downside is that the television did not work. BUT. We told the front desk at check-out and I know this will be addressed immediately. Strongly recommend this Hotel.

One of the best hotel rooms my wife and I have ever stayed in, clean, spacious, upscale amenities and a very pleasant lady at the front desk. We had a decent meal at the Downtown Grille in Madison, two blocks away,, as it was the only place open on a Sunday night but the restaurant just opposite the Inn looked wonderful.....we'll come back when it's open! This is a "must stop" destination if you are going from Florida to North Carolina....

Great room and great town but stay away from the restaurant next to it if you do not want to be part of of rehearsal dinner while trying to have your own anniversary. Also the "champagne" is a German sparkling and the cheeses platter is a cheap public cheeses. Will like to see robe in the room and ask for the second floor and away from the park. (Noisy)

The James Madison is a very nice and first class property. It is the only place to stay in Madison and will surprise people that such a place would be located in rural Georgia. When in Madison, I won't stay anywhere else if the James Madison has availability.

My family and I basically took over the Inn for a wedding weekend and everything was great. It was conveniently located to all of our festivities. It felt like we were staying in a historic B & B although it was very new and well kept inside and out. The rooms are very large and having a fireplace was awesome. The bathrooms were huge which was great when travelling with my sisters. We highly recommend the James Madison Inn.

Staying at the James Madison Inn is like going back in time. You walk in the front door and you are greeted by the friendliest people.

Our daughter's wedding was held at a nearby venue, and the time of the wedding was the exact time of check-in at the James Madison Inn. The staff graciously allowed us to check in two hours early. Not only were the rooms beautifully decorated, the complementary breakfast was delicious and the restaurant attendant was most anxious to serve us. While the hotel is expensive, we believe the beautiful surroundings and the top-notch service make this facility a good value.

We chose to spend our anniversary weekend at the James Madison Inn, due to the short drive from our home in North Augusta, SC. Boy! Did we make the perfect choice! The Inn is georgeous! The staff goes out of their way to make sure you are taken care of. The Spa at James Madison Inn was a real treat as well. The downtown shops are in walking distance and don't leave without experiencing dinner at the Town 220 Restaurant. When checking out, we made reservations to go back in December.

This was our first time at the James Madison Inn. The Staff were so accomodating when we told them it was our anniversary - they brought us a complimentary bottle of champagne! Everything is within walking distance. One of the best dinners we have had at the '220' restaurant right next door. Definately recommnend a stay there.

Our room was well-appointed, immaculate, and quiet. Service was excellent, but not over-reaching. We enjoyed breakfast downstairs the next morning, and the previous evening found the Town 220 Restaurant to be above average as well. The bed itself was fabulous, and it turns out that the mattress was made locally.

My husband and I had an opportunity to go to the Masters this year and we began looking for a place to stay that was near Augusta. We were fortunate to have a friend who suggested the James Madison Inn in Madison, GA. Viewing it on line gave us a hint that it was special and then when we spoke to the innkeeper we knew it would be just perfect. And it was wonderful. The rooms are lovely, beds very comfortable and everyone is so friendly. An added plus is the great restaurant next door.

We obtained our reservations for the Madison 5 months ago. It was to be my wife's birthday celebration. Our check in was prompt and the receptionist showed us to our room. The rooms here are quite spacious. There was a large HDTV. All phone calls within the US were free. The bed was nice and firm. There was a large shower with a built in jacuzzi. My wife stated that the jacuzzi was weak. There is no fridge or microwave in the rooms here. My wife stated that because it is upscale, they are not provided. Ice was available, but that required a trip to the basement, 3 floors down for us. There was a nice continental breakfast. My only complaint was due to a movie that was being shown in the park adjacent to the facility. A local church group set up a movie in the park, and the sound was overwhelming. It lasted about 2 hours and it was 10:30 pm when it terminated. Our room was a park view. I would recommend that anyone getting accommodations here get a market view to insure they don't have to deal with this kind of activity.

It was a perfect get away! We had some work to do so this was a great retreat. Just far enough from Athens to feel like you were away and close enough that the drive was not an issue. Check in was wonderful, the room was ready and outstanding, the restaurant suggestions were terrific, the breakfast both mornings was great! We will return sooner rather than later!

My wife and I decided to escape for the weekend and were thrilled to find this boutique hotel right is downtown Madison. The property itself is very well done. It newer construction, but you would never know. The front desk described it as, “The charm of the old and the convenience of the new.” We were astonished at our guest room. It came with a fire place and a balcony with a view of the new park. Breakfast is included and is served in a room downstairs. It was quite nice. The best part is that you can walk to shop, tour, and eat. It was very convenient and I would highly recommend. The staff was so nice too. We didn’t feel like we were disturbing them with our questions as we have felt at other B&Bs, and I’m sure we’ll be back.
