I stayed because most of the time AmericInn's are a great stay. I made reservations over the phone and it was quick. Check in was smooth and the woman checking us in was friendly. The rooms were cleaned well but a bit on the outdated side. They could use a little updating. The bathrooms were also very clean and taken... More

Room had odor of stale smoke upon arrival Friday night. Front desk clerk not empowered to do anything. Manager came in briefly on Saturday and supposedly entered room and "couldn't smell anything". Told front desk clerk it was fine. He never contacted me, even though I was told he would. Hotel is generally overpriced for what you get, so excellent... More

Situated near shopping and close to downtown. The lobby and breakfast room are spacious and inviting The breakfast is exceptional. Plenty of choices, both for the healthy eater and those in search of a treat. Nice clean facility, good value!

Very nice, well kept property. Very close to Winning Edge bar that has excellent burgers. Very quiet even though they seemed to be almost at full capacity for the night. I will definitively stay again.

Liked the property so much I stayed an extra night. Staff was friendly, accommodating with all requests. Room was VERY quiet, clean. Bed was comfortable with good linens, pillows. Nice fridge, microwave and in-room coffee. Breakfast had good variety... par for hotel breakfast. Cereal, breads, danish, muffins, waffles, juice, eggs and sausage. Coffee was very good.

I stayed here for six nights this spring while taking care of family matters in Spencer. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast offerings were ok....cereal, waffles, a hot dish, toast, etc. The beds were fine. The room was clean and they did a good job of daily cleaning. The halls were sometimes noisy in early evening (before 10 pm)... More

Check in was great, staff very kind. Reported in the morning that the air conditioner was broken, it had made loud noises all night finally completely quit at 2am, very hot and stuffy in the room, uncomfortable to sleep. Reported the problem and staff reported with an "okay"

The staff was very friendly both at check-in and check-out. I was a little disappointed in the quality of the room. For the price, I expected a more updated room. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. TV was a little small for the size of the room. I was surprised at the variety of soda available. All three major... More

Spent the night here for a soccer tournament and it was great. Very clean and the beds very comfortable. Apparently, a VIP was there the night we stayed and they called us to make sure our soccer team would be quiet as not to wake the VIP which I thought was rude. Otherwise really no problems at all.
