“Great place to stay. ONLY 7 MINS AWAY FROM HOLIDAY WORLD!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2010

I don't really know the owner to well but seems like a very good guy. The rooms are very oldschool but very clean. I have seen what these other people have written and the room they probably stayed in were the rooms that were supposed to be renovated but since the motel was packed im assuming he gave them those rooms just so they have some where to stay. I was almost put in that room but when i arrived a guy came in and was checking out. So they cleaned the room and the room smelt great and was cool and clean. I loved my stay because how close it was to holiday world not to mention the clean great valued rooms.

I have never in my life stayed at a worse place. The room smelled. All of our clothes smelled like the room when we got back home so everything had to be washed. The toilet overflowed. The bathroom smelled like urine. We had to go buy air freshener to tolerate staying there for our 3 nights accomodations. The only reason we did keep the room is because there was NOWHERE within 45 minutes in all directions that had a room available. If you are going to Holiday World, book well in advance so you don't have to take what's available.

I have stayed at many motels on my travels and this one still takes the cake for worst. 2 decades behind outdated rooms, cigarette burns in non smoking rooms, AC that freezes, bugs in the rooms (probably due to the huge gap under the door). I don't care so much if the room is old and outdated, as long as it is clean. Maybe a new owner has taken over since I stayed? I have sen better reviews recently. I only stayed here more than once because the other motels near Holiday World were outrageously priced in the summer.

It's about 10 minutes off 64, west of Santa Claus, IN. We were first told that it wasn't a "good place to stay." We decided to check it out anyways. We can called to find out more about it. We asked if it was a "clean" room. The manager, Donna, told us that she would make doubly sure the rooms were ready and clean.The outside isn't the prettiest, however, you can't judge a book by it's cover! The rooms were VERY clean and neat. It has wi-fi available, basic cable and AC. We would definitely stay here again!

Booked room 2 days in advance, even called to make sure that the time we would be there would be okay but when we showed up there was no room. They blamed it on Priceline saying that they over booked them and Priceline said that they never called to say that they were full, but beginning to wonder if they just gave our room away!!!! There were 2 other couples that came in the same time that we were there and had the same problem!! They were going to give us connecting rooms, if you don't mind (or your kids) sleeping in a room that has no bed but they will give you some blankets to sleep on and the room that did have a bed had someone's things in it but that's no problem either they will just pack everything up and move it out so you can stay in that room becuase those people had "checked out" and just didn't need their suitcases or other things so they just left them there, no big deal!!! So don't trust that when you book a room at this motel that you will have a room and don't think you can call and confirm and tell them when you are going to arrive because none of that matters!!!!!

I can't believe how nasty and unclean the place was. I booked the room because it was a good rate, but now I know why. As soon as we walked in the room we walked back out. My advice to anyone reading this; please dont waste your time or your money on this motel. It is so worth the extra 30.00 to stay in a nice, clean hotel. I do have to say the owner was really nice and very understanding, he gave us our money back with no problem at all.

Well it isnt a 5 star but there was a nice mexican resturant to eat at on the property. They let us stay in the pool as long as we wanted he said to just call the desk when we were done. The rooms were fine. Close to Holiday World without having to pay the outragious price. The only problem would be that everything closed at like 6:00 and there wasnt anywhere to eat at except there resturant for miles. but hey had to drive a bit to eat still was closer and didnt have to pay an arm and a leg plus they were very nice.

  • Liked — the pool was clean and changed colors very pretty :D
  • Disliked — everything closing so early
