Nice newer hotel located conveniently nearby restaurants and an Aldi grocery store. I stay here frequently during business travel, and the rooms are always clean. The rooms have a spacious layout. There is a complimentary breakfast including biscuits, pastries, fruit, yogurt, eggs, and coffee. It's a great place to stay!

Terrific Staff. Very clean room. General maintenance is kept up with. Breakfast was good. No pool which was sort of a drag but not their fault if they just don't have the real estate to incorporate one. Great place to stay if you're staying in Forest City. Small town hotels (even name brands) can be scary. But this was really... More

This is the best hotel in town. Close to Walmart which is 24hrs and chili's/sonic restaurants. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was included in my room with a full selection of buffet items.

4/5 circles!! This was a good choice, and seem to get cudo's from the local business crowd. Locals tell me this is the nicest place in town. I had a great experience!
