Rip off lodging tax is 5% the want 12%. Had to speak through a door clerk couldn't speak English and lied saying all rooms were full but no one was there maybe two vehicles. Horrible way to pay for remodeling. Avoid this Inn from the dark ages.

This was a last minute, same day booking for a wedding weekend. The wedding accommodation hotels were fully booked, so we thought we'd take a chance with Cool Springs. The two double bed room was immaculate, newly painted, with a remodeled bathroom. There was no gross air freshener or cigarette smoke smell. The windows were openable, the TV worked well,... More

Very misleading reviews. Motel was old and the rooms were not clean. Up near the ceiling were bugs and I killed a large one in the bathroom. No counter space in the bathroom. They did have a small table in the bedroom with a mirror. The water had a musty smell. They did give free bottle water but that was... More

We stayed here based on the positive reviews, even though it was located in the middle of nowhere. The hotel's website also had photos of their rooms, which looked fine for one night. Service at check in was a bit abrupt. The hotel is clearly being renovated so the lobby was a mess. I'm sure that some of the rooms... More

First of all: this place was really cheap and then you can´t expect as much as if you pay a higher price. The room was quite small, but had refrigerator, micro and TV. No wall-to-wall carpet which was very positive. I could not find a hairdryer in the room. The aircondition made a lot of noise, but because of that... More

The room, the beds, the TV, and the WiFi were great. However, the quality of water was not good at all. Water smelled like rust strongly. I could not comfortably use water (etc, shower) at all. Be careful.

My family and I stayed there for two nights and the motel was great. The room was clean and the people there were very nice. It sits on US 421 in the woods so it has a very peaceful setting and there's a bench in front of the that makes it nice to sit and enjoy the weather. I will... More

I have been here 2 other times and both were great! Room was clean, bed was comfortable, but this time was a different story! Room was not swept, bed was not very comfy, and room was not as nice....could use some TLC in that room:((( We did pay $45 which is a great deal. But not worth it because we... More

we called at 8pm needing a place to stay due to a blizzard shutting down roads and the folks where extremely accommodating. The room was small but updated and very well decorated with new mini fridge,TV,microwave. The keyless entry made me and my husband feel safe and secure. Over all a wonderful place for the price

Stayed for one night at Cool Springs while shopping in Michigan City, IN. I had wanted to stay there for several years after seeing the reviews on tripadvisor, but hadn't since I usually travel with children and look for a place with a pool for them. I agree with the other reviewers. The hotel is small and is in the... More
