This was a very nice hotel with regards to location, price, customer service, etc. I would recomend this hotel to anyone that would need to stay there. The service when checking in was extremely friendly and welcoming. The food choices in the morning were very good along with the snacks in the evening.

This hotel is good for business travelers. Rooms are clean and comfortable which is hard considering all the snow and salt during the winter months. The staff is friendly and helpful. I had to print about 50 pages for work and they printed them without question for free. It was a lifesaver. Others have reviewed the breakfast, but the food... More

I would like to give recognition to all the employees of this hotel for being unusually good at their job. In particular I would like to mention two employees who go out of their way to make the stay here a pleasant one: Mr Khatri at the front desk and Nancy, the extremely nice lady that prepares our breakfast three...

Location is good, hotel is clean. Breakfast is mediocre, grab the cinnamon rolls. The refrigerator in the room is loud when it clicks on, I had to unplug it and do NOT get a room on the 1st floor. VERY loud at all hours of the night/morning, it would have been nice if the front desk warned us of this.... More

I recently stayed at the Kendallville, IN hotel for a wedding and I found this hotel disappointing the beds are way too firm, pillows are low low quality. The breakfast food was the horrible, they had uncooked sausages, eggs that were inedible and biscuits hard as a rock. We complained to the staff and all they said "its good, sausage... More

Stayed at this HIE in Kendalville for one night while visiting friends nearby. This was a great last minute stay; the hotel was further away than the one in Auburn but was quite a bit cheaper which made the extra 10 minute drive worth it to me. My room was right next to the front desk so I didn't get... More

The check-in process was fast and efficient, and the best touch was the manager's reception with one free cocktail. The location is close to restaurants and a Wal-Mart. The room was huge and had 3 sheets and soft and firm pillows. Had a little trouble getting the room temp. Comfortable though.

Stayed here for 4 nights on this trip. Have also stayed here on other trips. Will NEVER stay here again. I was triple charged for both our rooms. The staff was very, very rude. They lied directly to my face about the charges and then got extremely rude when I corrected them. Hotel is renovated. But it's like putting lipstick... More

I checked in late in the evening. The lady at check-in was friendly and helpful. When I opened the door to my room, I was overwhelmed with a stuffy smell as if the room had been closed for a year with no ventilation. I quickly turned on both air conditioners and the exhaust fan in the restroom. This did not... More
