it had been many years since last there, and the substantial renovations/expansion detracted from the previous comfortable environment. In terms of value for money, it was OK, but had lost much of its prior charm, turning it into a small anywhere convention center. Nothing actually bad, but will not rush back.

We do appreciate the charm that our building had pre-renovation. Although our interior is changing our staff still embraces small town charm and hospitality. We invite guests to enjoy our beautiful lobby and cozy up by the fire in the library with floor to ceiling books. We are excited about bringing necessary upgrades to the Inn to ensure guest satisfaction. More

This was a fun place to stay! Located in the downtown area it had a nice "feel" that was different than your typical chain hotel. Very tastefully decorated. Plenty of space in rooms. Not fancy but clean and friendly. Don't overlook this one just because breakfast isn't free. It was very reasonable and delicious! Hot buffet was only 5.95 and... More

HIdden gem in Greencastle, this Inn on the campus of Depauw offers great rooms, comfortable beds and very clean surroundings. I arrived very, very late and only stayed one night. Breakfast the next day (not free) was a buffet with an excellent omelet chef. Great service, happy people. Cable TV package could be improved. Internet speed a bit slow.

Stayed for a week in mid February and had a very pleasant stay. The rooms were adequate for an inn and the restaurant better than expected. The best part was the service, from the housecleaner to reception to custodial staff, all were excellent. A great place to stay if you need to be in Greencastle, Indiana.

Arriving late at night during a snowstorm, we were warmly welcomed and quickly set up in our room with a king size bed and very basic bathroom. Wi-fi was free and the staff was friendly. Had we known there was a restaurant right off the lobby, we would have skipped the unappealing stop at Cracker Barrel on the way in... More

We brought 40 students for a campus visit. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were perfect. It was nice a quiet and I got a great sleep. The hotel is right on campus so you couldn't ask for a better location.

Every time we visit our son at DePauw University we stay here. The only challenge is on popular weekends you will need to make your reservations early. A boutique hotel that's recently been updated. Very clean.

Pros: You are right in the heart of campus, so if you are in town for any campus event, this is by far the best place to stay. Cons: in general, you don't get the perks you get with other hotels in this price range. Bottom line: You are paying for the location. The room was clean and basic, but... More
