The website stated that it had been completely renovated and the picture showed an updated outside. We definitely did not get either of those things....the outside was very old looking and the parking lot was poorly lit. Our first room had ants so we requested a new room and it was fine. The carpets looked old and felt dirty. Our... More

Stayed one night and had received a great rate, under $100. The room was with a king sized bed and the room was huge. Had a microwave and mini-fridge. Bed was a little firm for my liking, but ok. The free breakfast was somewhat lacking. The normal cereal and pastries along with ham slices, french toast sticks and breakfast burritos.... More

Check in was very easy. Room was clean and the AC was turned on so the room was already very comfortable. The hot tub and pool were very clean and very relaxing. Great choices on breakfast the next morning.

This is our go to place to stay in the area. The employees are always friendly and helpful, the lobby, pool area are clean and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. We have never had a bad experience here.

The entire environment in the room was damp including the sheets and bedding. Very poor ventilation. Took a shower in the evening, and the bath tub looked recently used the next morning. No water had evaporated. Although the A/C was running the entire time, the air was extremely humid in the entire room...a breeding ground for mold.

overall OK - room was musty smelling and we asked for dryer sheets to put on the vent to help freshen the air, the ice machine was out all weekend and they weren't proactive in providing ice (u had to ask) also we had 2 lights w/broken switches in our room - but they had no other rooms available and...

excellent. Our room was very spacious, even with 2 queen beds. I m guessing from the bathroom with it's walk in shower and available chair, that our room could have been converted over to a handicap accessible room. At any rate, I thought it was awesome.

I travel a lot on the "state rate" so I can't stay at just any hotel. I choose AmericInn because I know they have a nice breakfast, a nice pool, clean rooms and friendly service. I wish their bedding was a little thicker as I like to turn the air on cool and bundle up in the warm covers.

We found the location for our purpose to be perfect. I would highly recommend this hotel to both business and families. I plan to return to this hotel... More

I don't usually sleep well in a bed other than my own, but I slept well the night we stayed there. We happened to come as they were celebrating their renovation. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was satisfying.
