This hotel is the epitome of why people who travel often question whether IHG is serious about quality or if they should just adopt a low price strategy a la motel 6. The check-in was pretty standard if a bit slow. The A/C didn't work well, and the microwave in the room was totally dead. The bed was reasonably comfortable... More

The front desk clerk was extremely cordial and a very pleasant man to speak with. He could not ask enough if we had all we needed and if there was anything he could do for us during check-in. The room was extremely clean and quiet, with a powerful AC that kept the room comfortably chilled throughout the night. The breakfast... More

Our stay was as advertised in Metropolis. Breakfast was better than expected, the room was clean, staff was friendly and price seemed reasonable. I would stay there again. The only issue that we even had was that the A/C seemed to not work as well late at night.

Decided to branch out from Motel 6 as according to Travelocity there was no pet restrictions. However, when printing off confirmation, it stated was a $10 fee for pets. Upon arrival, we were told was a $20 fee per pet above 40pds! Night attendant did nothing to address this even when when my confirmation shown. And when going to the... More

When we got there we were told that the pool was closed but the staff gave us money off of our bill which I greatly appreciated and they apologized several times! The first thing that my kids asked when I went back to the car to get the rest of the family is 'Can we go swimming?'. I told them... More

This is the lowest review I have ever given. I will start out with the positives...it is easy to get to, and we booked with points, so it was free. The staff was friendly, it's very close to restaurants, and that's where the positives end. The hotel was older and very worn. The pool was closed for "repair and cleaning".... More

The front desk staff here is wonderful - friendly and helpful even when arriving after midnight. Hotel is small, a bit older, but well kept. It's very easy to get to from the highway. We will definitely stay there again.

The facility was neat, attractive, and clean. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and courteous. The beds were extremely comfortable -- wished I could take the mattress and pillows with me. We asked how old the place was and we were told it had been renovated in 2009. Everything looked so fresh and well-kept that we were amazed it had... More
