Stayed two nights while in town for concert. Room was clean - very comfortable bed! Grounds was very beautiful. We enjoyed our coffee each morning outside. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!

Really great hotel at reasonable rates. The rooms were comfortable, very new and clean, and attractive. The pool (and hot tub) area was clean and family friendly. The BEST part of our stay was the free breakfast. Without a doubt the best hotel breakfast we'd ever had. Will definitely be back to this hotel the next time we're in the...

I arrived at the hotel on 11/24 and requested to check-in early. The front desk clerked granted my request and finally got it right the 3x. The first room I walked into was occupied by a sleeping family, so I went back and informed her. She apologized and assured me the next room would be fine. The second desk clerk...

Only took 28 minutes to find bed bugs crawling on the wall beside the bed. Checked in on Nov 17th, 2016 at 10:40pm checked out at 11:08pm. When we went to the front desk to check out and get a refund the girl didn't even seem surprised. Not even an apology for our inconvenience!

The rooms are outdated, furniture is old and stained. There's no elevator in this hotel. Lots of cigarette butts in the parking lot. The parking lot is dark, not enough lights. Breakfast was good, bacon on the bar.

I visit family in the area every year and have stayed at some lousy spots, but this one is much nicer and quieter than the group of hotels on the east side of highway 65. It is tucked away behind some office buildings right off of Route 30 & HWY 65. It just looks peaceful; like a lodge in the...

We have been here often and feel that it's the best value in an area filled with hotels. Away from highway noise with windows overlooking a stream and walkway. Breakfast available for a nominal cost. Indoor pool opens to the outside.

The reception people were great. From reading Trip Advisor, I knew what to ask for: facing the back, away from traffic noise, king-size bed, on the ground floor. The room was huge and the park with waterfall out back was lovely. Small biting flies were a nuisance in the evening. Room 131 had a fridge that was a huge junk...
