This was our second time staying and we love the James Madison Inn!

This is a beautiful inn in downtown Madison. While there is no restaurant in the inn, there is an excellent one just across the parking lot. Others easy to get to on foot. Our room was huge, had a balcony, fireplace & absolutely wonderful shower. Very comfortable bed. Breakfast served on the bottom floor in a common room, but one feels like it is your own living room. Nice fireplace, couch & chairs besides the numerous tables & chairs for dining. We were able to use this area for a little wine & cheese after a long day at the Masters Golf Tournament practice round. For those leaving early for the Masters, breakfast was fixed "to go" at an earlier time than usual. Love this place. Will definitely want to go back. Molly

We stayed here two nights while attending the Masters golf tournament practice round. This inn is beautiful & the rooms are very spacious. Awesome shower, especially after a long & tiring day. We were able to have our own little wine & cheese party (four of us), using the breakfast/den area in the basement. The lobby commons area is especially beautiful, a setting for some bridal photography while we were there. Employees were extremely friendly &accommodating. There is an elevator, which is nice. Hope to return.

My wife and I have stopped in Madison for 7 - 8 years on our way to the Smokies for the fall colors. We plan our trip in order to eat breakfast at Perk Avenue, one of our favorite places in the Southeast! Our stay at James Madison B and B only enhanced our visit to your lovely city. The staff was helpful and introduced us to the surrounding Georgia countryside through their suggestions and directions. Thank you all for a wonderful weekend.

Visited The James Madison Inn for a New Year's getaway. It was wonderful. The room was gorgeous and so very comfortable. We loved the fireplace in the room. The bed was super comfy as well. The bathroom was so nice with the huge tiled shower. The inn and grounds were beautiful as well. It was so thoughtful of them to keep refreshments available for the guests. We loved our stay.

After attending a conference in Atlanta just before Thanksgiving we extended our stay in Georgia to enjoy the holiday in Madison at the James Madison. We walked in the beautiful foyer, checked out our suite, and my husband wrapped his arms around me, gave me a kiss and said, "You did good in finding this place!" You will not be disappointed by this beautiful bed & breakfast or the sweet town of Madison. Great shopping, decent restaurants, and we even found yoga classes here at Serenata Farm! We'll be back.

Thoroughly enjoyed relaxing by the fireplace. Bed linens were exquisite. All in all a first class experience.

We had a delightful stay, everything was delightful. The breakfast was not anything special however, have had the same things at many less expensive hotels.

Absolutely loved this inn! The best one on our entire trip. The room was truly lovely, breakfast was excellent and the service couldn't have been nicer. The location was terrific as well. Will definitely go back again.

all I needed was a clean place t stay and I was overwhelmed with the little goodie I found in this Inn! details to the max! The incredible shower/tub, down comforter, cozy robes and personnel that were so helpful! DO THIS HOTEL and treat yourself!

The James Madison Inn helped us complete our memorable weekend as we got married at Variety Works next door. The service was impeccable, the rooms were beautiful, and my guests all had a fabulous time. Thank you!

We always feel so special and relaxed when we stay at The James Madison Inn. Everyone is so friendly and are willing to help in any way. We don't live far from there, but it seems like we are in a resort somewhere. We can't wait to go back soon. We are there at least 2 times a year for a long weekend stay.
5 on September 18, 2015
We loved staying here! We got the second floor sweet for my little family for 4 nights and it was so clean and comfortable! Wonderful staff and great morning breakfast! We will definitely be back!
5 on September 03, 2015
Our experience was fabulous from beginning to end. The hotel is elegant but not intimidating. We stayed in a king room with a park view. The room was large, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was an extensive buffet and very good. We didn't want to leave.
3.8 on August 30, 2015
From the sheets on the bed to the warm staff, this is truly a great place to stay. I would like the whole room to be mine forever. Loved the gentle aroma in the room and the cushy chairs in front of the fireplace. The bathroom was spotless and the shower wonderful. The little magnifying mirror was a nice touch even tho I could not look very long at my wrinkles! This is a lovely, lovely place. The breakfast was a tad underwhelming but who cared?! Tried to click Outstanding on review but site would not allow it.
4.6 on August 15, 2015
This is a little gem in Madison. Lovely, quality, sophisticated decor, not your typical quaint b&b. We go here as often as we can, and enjoy walking around the small downtown area right from the hotel.

Outstanding buttons did not work. We had a problem, AC went out, We were immediately moved to another room. Rooms were roomy and comfortable, very pleased with hotel, pretty good hot breakfast.
4.0 on May 15, 2015
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.
4.2 on April 21, 2015
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!
4.0 on April 16, 2015
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.
5 on April 13, 2015
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.
4.6 on April 10, 2015
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.
4.8 on April 08, 2015
We had a great, relaxing weekend with a couples massage, wonderful dinner at Town 220, and shopping in Madison. A great place for a getaway.

We enjoyed our stay and the restaurant next door.
4.2 on April 06, 2015
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.
4.8 on March 30, 2015
Our third visit to the hotel. Again, perfection! Room is great, beds are comfy, breakfast is delicious. Looking forward to another visit soon!
4.8 on March 04, 2015
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.

Beautiful boutique hotel. Delicious breakfast. Spacious room with a comfy bed, chairs, and fireplace. Well-decorated with everything we needed for a restful and relaxing stay..

The inn is beautiful. There is no onsite dinner but there is a restaurant just across the back parking area which is very good. Breakfast is nice, and is onsite and included.
4.6 on March 02, 2015
A lovely Inn that we have enjoyed a number of times always consistent. Large well appointed rooms with fireplace and very quiet. Just steps away for the finest dining in Madison.

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.
5 on January 11, 2015
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!
4.4 on January 06, 2015
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.

Met up with a friend and enjoyed a very comfortable and clean room. Just a great place for a relaxing weekend!
4.0 on October 14, 2014
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.
4.6 on October 08, 2014
Had a wonderful but short stay here. Would love to come back to Madison and would definitely stay at the James Madison Inn again!
4.2 on September 21, 2014

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!!
4.8 on July 23, 2014
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.

excellent place to stay.

Historic B&B in a beautiful southern town.
4.6 on July 03, 2014
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....
4.8 on June 13, 2014
Unfortunately only one night in transit. We'll be back!
3.8 on June 03, 2014
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)

I enjoyed my stay at the James Madison! What a beautiful, clean, and hospitable place to spend the night. Madison is also a charming little town with good restaurants and lovely walks.

Great experience. I would definitely recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone staying in Madison I am sure that this is the best place to stay in the area. The service was great and we really felt right at home. Everything is in close proximity as it is right in the middle of town. We will definitely be staying here again.

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.
5 on October 23, 2013
We enjoyed our stay at the James Madison Inn. The rooms were so comfortable and clean; the staff were all accommodating. The location was perfect being right downtown so you could walk to restaurants and shops. One of the nicest places we have ever stayed.
4.6 on October 18, 2013
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.
4.8 on October 08, 2013
The room was clean and pleasing to the eye! The bed linens superb and the service way above average. It is also in a very nice location for walking in downtown Madison.

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. The rooms are so well appointed with kingsize beds and the bedding is to die for. The beds are sooo comfortable...you really don't want to leave it. Just a fabulous experience.

Very nice to stay at for a relaxing time. Friendly employees at all the shops we visited. For dining out try amici's cafe with good reasonably priced food or for a fancier fare try restaurant 220.

My husband and I celebrated our 30th year wedding anniversary at James Madison Inn. We had a wonderful experience, it was one of the best vacations we've had in a very long time.

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.
4.6 on October 21, 2012
Every part of the facility, staff room and toe exceeded my expectations. I can hardly wait for another visit
5 on June 29, 2012
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.
4.6 on June 26, 2012
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.

This was a great experience and the room was great.

I took my fiancee here for her birthday on May 9th, for the day, and we loved it, we had an amazing, peaceful and comfortable stay.

4.6 on May 01, 2012
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.
5 on April 04, 2012
Highly recommended!!!! The ONLY place to stay in Madison. The rooms are large, with fireplaces, balconies, lovely decor, and wonderful bedding. We loved our whole experience at the James Madison Inn. Will be back again!!!

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.
5 on August 09, 2011
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.
