“Visiting College Student at ISU”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

If you've been in this area, you know that there is a cluster of hotels in this area. I've never stayed at the AmericInn, I've always stayed at the Microtel. I was pleasantly surprised. Whenver I see a 2 star rating, I get nervous. I read the reviews and thought we'd give it a whirl.

This is a great spot! It was clean, the staff was friendly, our beds were comfortable, we had in room coffee, fridge and microwave. There was some type of boys basketball event going on. We had many kids both nights at the hotel. Never heard a peep and we were on the 1st floor by the vending machines. I would definitely stay here again. We did not use the pool but it looked nice and clean.

We were in the area for a kids basketball tournament. we book the room online and had no problems at check in. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Very nice motel for a very good rate. we booked this hotel for a state coming up again in 2 weeks.

For the second year in a row we were extremely disappointed with the noise level at this hotel. There were unsupervised children in the lobby until 1am and the front desk refused to hunt down their parents or mandate that the kids noise level remain somewhat moderate. After 3 phone calls my in-person visit to the front desk resulted in a clear message "I am not authorized to" manage the noise level of unsupervised children, stated by the front desk staff. The pack of 10-13 year olds were in the lobby carrying on until nearly 1 am.

Dear Heather,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay, although I apologize for the noise issues in the lobby. Our hotel rules stipulate that the lobby area is to be vacated, or at least quieted and under control, by midnight.

I am sorry that you had to call and stop by the front desk so many times, I assure you that this has been addressed with my front desk staff, and that we have been enforcing the midnight rules.

Please feel free to contact us again with any further comments or suggestions.

Thanks.

I stayed here when I came through on business for a few days. The check-in was very efficient. The room was very nice, clean, and smelled good. The breakfast was great, a lot of choices. The staff was very nice and helpful. I will be staying here again when I come through.
