We had the privilege to stay at this wonderful hotel. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were very clean and modern. The indoor pool and hot-tub were perfect after a long day. The front desk clerk, Kelly was very helpful. Also, Sue was awesome and kept the dinner and the breakfast flowing smoothly. Sue was wonderful with our kids!!!... More

I highly recommend this hotel! The entire staff is very nice and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The rooms are always clean, coffee is always hot. Quiet rooms for a nice peaceful rest. I have to give the nice audit clerk (Linda) extra credit for having Muffins, Bagels, and hot coffee ready for me at... More

I have stayed in this hotel on two separate occasions. Each time our stay was excellent. The rooms are nicely appointed, although not lavish, the lobby is very nice and the parking is ample. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast is an added plus. Additionally on weeknights they have beer on the house.

We recently stayed at this Motel as it was close to Bloomfield, Indiana where we attended a funeral. The motel was a great choice we made as it was close to the highway, close to our destination and close to restaurants. We very much enjoyed staying here; the room was spacious, clean and the staff was very gracious to us.... More

Very happy with our stay at this hotel. Our first room we were given the heat/ac unit was not working but the staff quickly got us a new room and upgraded us to a suite. Very nice and clean room. Breakfast was exceptional. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again when in the area.

I've stayed here a few times over the years and I have never been disappointed. The InterContinental Hotels Group training department should bring their prospective managers to this hotel to see how things should be done right. In the past I've provided laudatory feedback on this hotel at their website, and I have mentioned it again when I have used... More
