HotelTonight – Middleton Hotels in a Few Swipes
There are a lot of little pockets in Madison, Wisconsin that all come together to form one of the best cities in the United States in which to live, according to countless surveys. One of the nicest parts of town, or so I've been told many times, is Middleton. I didn't know about that personally until recently, when I extended my work trip to Madison for a day so I could explore this little community. I have been doing that for a while now--coming to Madison and learning about a different part of town, as I have long been in love with this part of the world. I looked forward to finding out if what I had heard so many times was accurate. I also wasn't worried at all about lodging, as I travel with HotelTonight. It's an app on my phone that I was sure would help me find a Middleton hotel room in seconds, as it's done for me in so many other places.
"The Good Neighbor City"
You know that when the official motto of your community is, "The Good Neighbor City" that you're going to be spending time in a friendly place. It took all of a few seconds for me to realize that this was a very fitting motto. Everyone I talked to was incredibly friendly and genuine, and when I asked them where to go or where to eat, I almost had to start writing things down because they were so full of information and suggestions. This community is one that is very tightly knit, and that's something that shows through in just about every conceivable aspect of life here.
You wouldn't think you'd find a lovely beach in the middle of Wisconsin and nowhere near an ocean, but that's exactly what I found when I went to spend some time near Lake Mendota. Middleton sits on the shore of the largest lake in the Madison area, and Spring Harbor Beach is a place where the people of this friendly community come to gather. The lush grass falls into a nice sandy beach that runs directly into the clean and calm waters of the lake. Kids were swimming, adults were waterskiing and others were lounging on their boats. It was quite a scene.
During my conversations throughout the day, I kept hearing about this little tavern near the center of town that has been family-owned for generations. It's not fancy, it's not flashy and it's not anything you'll see on television. It is a place that is famous--at least locally--for its hamburgers, and I was in the mood for one with an ice-cold beer. The place is filled with plywood, cheap chairs and tables, and some of the best hamburgers I have ever tasted. These were made with local beef, some kind of delicious seasoning, Wisconsin cheese and… I could go on, but I may get too excited.

As full as I was, I could only think of one thing, and that was sleep. I pulled out my phone, opened HotelTonight and found a Middleton hotel room in seconds. It was close to where I was, and I was happy about that. I looked forward to a long night of deep sleep after a very fulfilling--and filling--day.
