Wonderful people, service was great.really didn't get to swim or anything, father was at the VA hospital. All we done was sleep and shower. It was also nice to have been given a government discount. Thank you 👍

We are from Tampa Fl. We came to Fort Wayne for a family reunion. We traveled with four kids and only two Adults. Laura at the front was so nice and accommodating. She upgraded us to the children's suit. She was so nice and understanding (not to mention helpful).We can't believe how welcoming and hospital the staff has been. The... More

We stayed in this property this April 2014 during Vera Bradley Outlet Sale - which was our destination. We appreciated the location most of all: right across from the Coliseum. There was complementary shuttle service to the Coliseum with very nice and helpful lady-driver. It was very useful, as the street was quite busy, and there was no light nearby... More

I was in town for a meeting at IPFW. Easy check-in, very clean and quiet room. No tub, just a walk-in shower, which was fine. TV, hair dryer, lights, heater all worked - which, sadly, is unusual these days. Very updated and comfortable. My favorite part was the expansive breakfast buffet which was very affordable. Very nice stay.

The hotel is in good shape, it has a small gym but with a good installation, a pool, nice breakfast with omelettes, pancakes, yoghurt, etc. Maybe... a little dust in the closet, the will have to improve on that but in general it was a good stay.

We are so happy we chose this hotel for a 2 nite stay with our kids. We booked our room in advance & confirmed while driving into Indiana from Chicago. There was a slight discrepancy re our credit card and deposit, but the manager on duty rectified the situation & encouraged us, finding a proper solution. Not only did she... More

We had some issues at check-in which were resolved to our satisfaction and with very personable service. The rooms were VERY clean and the hotel overall was clean. Bigger pool area than many hotels. It is unfortunate that they didn't build the stairs to the interior first floor. The hotel was full and the two elevators couldn't keep up with... More

This hotel is in a great location if you are going to the Colliseum, it's directly across the street and offers a free shuttle. The rooms are rather small, as well as the bathrooms. I felt like the hotel was okay clean, but could have been much better. The tub looked clean, but there was hair in the bottom of... More

Went on a girls trip for Vera Bradley Outlet Sale. PERFECT location and had a shuttle to/from the sale. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The staff was welcoming. The bar was cozy to relax in after a long day of shopping. The grill's slow service and cold food was the only thing that lacked, but not enough to... More

What a great location and great service! So close to everything, Glenbrook Mall, Granite City restaurant, easy access. The front desk was amazing, thank you Jessica. Wonderful shuttle service over to the sale. Happy hour and breakfast. I would have given it 4 stars if the whirlpool had been functioning.
