... and the hotel is in pretty sorry shape. There is absolutely NO carpet to be found in either the lobby or the rooms. [Cheap laminate.] We were looking for a quick overnight stay close to Hope, Indiana. While the photos of this hotel look like it's still in good condition, it is NOT. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to... More

I was a little taken back upon arrival with cops in the parking lot. The pictures that you are seeing here are NOT the hotel I stayed in. The Relax Inn is in need major repairs and updating. My room #126 was terribly shop worn...needing paint and a major overhaul. The room was clean and surprisingly quiet. I wouldn't recommend... More

This is a value at $49.95. Clean room, friendly staff, right off I-65 AND right next door to a Waffle House. When I am traveling cross country all I really want @ 7:00 PM is a clean room with a comfortable bed and place to get something to eat that won't break the bank. This property gave me all of...

There was an accident in the highway on my way back home so I googled a place to stop and stay for the night. This place had the best rates compared to others but they weren't that much better so I wasn't expecting it to be as bad as it was. I booked the reservation and was told it couldn't... More

The recent winter storm in central Indiana caused a huge limb to fall from my tree in the backyard. The limb took out my service line, the meter base was destroyed and the riser out of the meter base was bent at a 90 degree angle. There was no way to get a electrician for at least a day or...

We were there for weekend stay to see family in Franklin. The location is convenient, right next to the interstate and minutes from the heart of town. It's clearly not a new property; the grounds are worn and even a little rough in places (like the asphalt in the parking lot, and there appears to be an entire wing of... More

I stayed at this property July 28th. When I woke up in the morning and snuck into the bathroom trying not to wake my kids, I turned the light on to find 4 ants scurrying away. Then I turned the lights on in the rest of the room and see more. We had ant in our luggage as well. I... More

I got to the hotel for check in at 2 pm. People working there were friendly enough. Got to the room and it was not clean. You could tell someone had been in there. Bed not made, tooth paste in the sink and towels all over. I call the front desk and he (Kevin) came up with a key to... More
