Stayed here for the first time and was pleasantly surprised once we walked through the lobby doors. The hotel is spacious, has two pools, lots of vending machines, on-site bar/restaurant open Wed-Sun, meeting room capabilities, and small laundry facility. The rooms are pretty comfortable and come with mini frig and microwave. Found the hotel to be fairly quiet at night... More

The room was dated but clean and bed very comfortable. Personnel very friendly. Pool air conditioner was noisy outside our room but was not a big problem. Easily accessible off Indiana toll road I 80.

I stayed a day and a half for business. My check in process was very efficient and the staff was very friendly. The hotel was very busy but I had no problem sleeping and having a very restful night. Breakfast was very good with home baked muffins, chocolate was one of my favorites. I didn't get a chance to use... More

Stayed here in a suite with family as part of a larger group. Would not stay here again (and probably would not have stayed in the first place if I'd had any day in the matter). Room was big but dark and very worn. Bathtub dark with grubby looking stains. Sister-in-law found two earwigs in her room. Hotel had two... More

Would I recommend someone to stay there? No I don't believe... More

We checked in after midnight and were greeted by the very friendly desk clerk who honored the discounted rate we found online. Our stay wasn't long, but we enjoyed it. The room was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. The room when had a microwave and mini fridge. And the water pressure on the shower was fantastic. The... More

The hotel is very large and has a confusing layout. The hotel rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable but the hotel is pretty old and could use a remodel. Overall the hotel will work if you find a good price and all you want is a good bed but it's pretty old feeling. I keep saying that it... More

Kudos to Carla and her staff! This is a well maintained property. You can see the attention to detail in every area, the lobby, the pool, and the restaurant. Our rooms were clean and smelled fresh. The staff is gracious and very responsive to your requests and inquiries. The breakfast buffet was an unexpected pleasure...not just rolls and cold cereal.... More

Stayed here for AYOP. First we were given the wrong room key. Good thing when my husband opened the door the guest occupying the room were not there. Found underwear on the floor of our bedroom. Outdoor pool was not usable. They decided it was a good time to clean the hot tub when the hotel was booked with AYOP... More
