Great place to visit for a quick/fun get away. I highly recommend the theme rooms as it gives an extra value for your $$ and a change of pace. We found nothing wrong with the facilities, the temp of the room or the staff. Stayed in the Oriental room & it was a romantic stay.

We are just driving through so we didn't get to enjoy the whole hotel. I know it has a pool and it was pretty hopping at 10pm. There's a breakfast which we didn't make it to. The room was surprisingly nice- hardwood floors, nice accents, AC worked good, no smell!, bed was comfy enough, but the bathroom walls are covered... More

I was looking for something different to do for Valentine's Day a couple years ago and found out that the Settle Inn has several theme rooms. They were kind of expensive so I called to ask if I could look at a room before I booked it. They told me that I could stop by anytime to take a look.... More

We paid a good price and after one night the toilet keeps running and the sink is plugged so we can't use it. We called for help tonight and the front desk said they can't do anything about it. We won't come back......

Room was clean and comfy, but the ac unit emitted an odd, musty smell when it was on. Pool/Spa area is cleaner than most. The internet is pretty slow, but useable. I didn't have much to do with the staff, but my husband said they were very friendly. We've stayed in several hotels in this area recently, and this is... More

The staff was very helpful and friendly!! We called at 9:00pm to stay that night. They turned the AC on for us so the room was nice and cool when we arrived. The rooms were clean and comfy. They also had a handicap lift for the pool. They let us park our motorcycles by the entrance as well as special... More

This is the most disgusting place I have ever walked into. The rooms were not cleaned from the previous occupants. There was dried, crusted, white stuff on the desk, night stand, and entertainment center. When we told the front desk, they couldn't have cared less. One lady did come clean, but complained that "this wasn't her job" the whole time.... More

The short list: We had to call the office to adjust the temp. in our room (which they never did); had to call the office because the TV remote didn't work, they told us it had to be programmed, the TV was a very old small boxy TV not a flat screen, the chairs coverings were all frayed, the table...
