We had a room all the way in the back and it was next to someone who worked there and lived there. It smelled like cigarettes badly even tho the doors said no smoking. They tried to cover the smell up with a very strong mens cologne. It was nauseating. The rooms were in disrepair, with a lot of paint... More

This is definitely a dated property. I normally expect more from ABVI, but this was an old hotel that is somehow affiliated with the chain. It's okay for a 1 night stay, but it's obvious that some people stay their longer, perhaps even live there. The young woman running the front desk was nice to work with.

I would stay here again, because I got a decent room, great customer service, and felt safe at a reasonable price. All I needed was a place to sleep and shower and I am not... More

Bed bugs, unmentionable sheet stains, and the overwhelming smell of cigarettes sum up my stay here. Staff also entered room, despite do not disturb sign, and room was filthy. Do not stay here under any circumstances.

Tired after shopping all day, just wanted a place to crash. I let Priceline find me the cheapest room and I paid the price..... Staff was very friendly, but the accommodations were less than par. I was in what use to be a smoking room, and, apparently still is, there were hundreds of cigarette butts littered in front of the... More

Because the State of Indiana decided it didn't want tourist money from smokers, we look for a park-outside-your-door motel when we have to do business in that state. This place is clean and tidy and staff is super nice. It is older, but judging from the pile of mattresses at the dumpster, they do their best at maintenance. Our king... More

Room was non-smoking supposedly, but it smelled like it had been a smoking room for 10 years until the day we were there. Holes in sheets, blankets, and pillow cases. Toilet seat had paint peeling off. Remote for TV did not work. Pillows were flat as pancakes. When we arrived we stood at counter for almost 5 minutes while we... More
