The free continental breakfast is available in the morning. The owners are very nice. Rooms are spacious; the only thing the electric sockets loose for the small refrigerator so not sure that small fridge was on all the time. Also, the types of showers knobs are not my favorite to close all the way. The place was clean but for... More

At the price you pay for this place it's not that bad. This place isn't luxurious. It's old and the rooms have been beat down but I can tell you this ... for the money you pay especially on game day weekend - it's not too shaby. The place isn't in the best neighborhood however I didn't feel that it... More

We got caught in a huge thunderstorm and needed a last minute place to stay. Due to a baton twirlers competition it was difficult to find an economy hotel booking. When we arrived the pictures were NOTHING like the ones posted here. The parking lot had flooded due to the rains to the point where the water reached the bottom... More

Some of the problems contained within the confines of my hotel room's walls are as follows: 1. Rust was never in short supply. Anything metal was rusty, indicating a moisture problem. This is reinforced by the fact that the wood of most furniture and decor items was warped. Also, ceiling tiles by the bathroom contained mold and were in general... More

I had made reservations here for a Notre Dame football weekend in October, 2011. Some time during the Spring of 2011 I had called to cancel this reservation but could not come up with my cancellation number. My credit card was charged two weeks prior to the reservation date, that's how I found out that my reservation had not been... More

The whole idealogy behind a national chain is that you can expect a certain quality without having to read a review. A big mac is a big mac no matter where you are; that is the beauty of a national chain. Not so with this place. We were late getting to this hotel due to the snow, so my wife... More

My father and I stayed at this room so we had a place to stay after watching the Notre Dame/Pitt game. I am a 30 year old man and it takes alot to disgust me as much as this room did. Usually all hotel rooms are the same to me as long as the bed is comfortable and the shower... More

We stayed here while traveling on the interstate. We saw the coupon at a rest area and it looked like a good deal, about $45. On the positive side, there were no bedbugs and I slept well. The bedding seemed clean, the bathroom was clean. A modest breakfast is included: cold cereal, pastries, and juice. BUT...the ac didn't seemed to... More
