This hotel was spectacular on the inside and out! The layout of how open it is on the inside is very cool. The pool was nice and so were the rooms. Staff was nice and friendly. Good hotel overall to stay at for a night or two. The only problem was the breakfast was not cheap or free for that... More

Five Star hotel at Three star rates! Was also able to use points for one free night. Room was clean and neat. Temperature control was excellent. Less than a mile off I65 and close to shopping mall and restaurants.

The hotel is large with an atrium that allows you to see everything, and the rooms are nice. The bed was comfortable, but the TV was a little blurry. Breakfast was less than desirable, and the cook wasn't even there when we got there to order eggs and omelets. Also, the bar closed at 8:00 on Thanksgiving night when the... More

We arrived late Thanksgiving night. We were excited to see that this was the Marshall University team hotel. The staff has been excellent, giving us advice and being attentive to our wants. The rooms are spacious and clean. The bed is firm. The price to value ratio is the best! Great value at a good price. We will definitely stay... More

For the 19th year I have arrived home for the winter at the HIUP. The 7M complete remodel is just about complete and the hotel is just beautiful. Both the public and private areas are just about complete and look wonderful. If you stayed here before, you will want to come back and see the changes.

We have been coming to this hotel for years and it is a nice, clean place to stay. I will say this time we thought the TV reception was less than stellar and there were loud vehicles driving around the parking lot late at night. We also didn't feel as if the breakfast buffet was as extensive as it was... More

The best thing about this hotel is the customer service, which is impeccable. The breakfast staff is particularly kind and attentive, especially Sandy, who takes the time to make sure you have everything you need before heading out to start your day.

Overall this was an amazing place to stay on my business trip. With the Sloan Convention Center attached via a scenic walkway, it prevents weather from being an issue. Service was great and immediate. The room was neat, clean and organized. The only issue I had was the noise level into early morning hours could be heard from the convention... More

I stayed here for a conference. My room was nice and clean. The atrium design of the hotel is really appealing too. I woke up in the morning to the smell of breakfast from down in the lobby. The front desk and rest of the staff were attentive, friendly, and polite. They personified 'hospitality'.
