“Better than I thought it would be”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Was visiting my grandchildren for school and soccer events and needed to get a room for the night. It was the lowest priced room I could find on the east side of Evansville, so because I would only be there a short time, thought it would be alright.
Checked in kind of late - about 9:30 pm. The lobby was clean and fresh looking, and check in was quick and easy. The woman at the desk was very friendly.
The room was small with few amenities, what I expected to find in a budget hotel. The smell was a little stale, but not too bad. The bed was adequately comfortable, and it was quiet so I slept well.
The breakfast was better than I've had at some pricier hotels, though it was not luxurious in any sense of the word.
Check out was quick and easy, again with a friendly desk clerk.
For a short one night stay it was ok, and better than I expected. I felt that it was more than worth the lower cost paid for the room.

I stay there weekly on business, the staff know me by name and are always very accomendiating. Rooms are clean and kept and when anything has come up they took care of it right away. I have to leave before the scheduled breakfast time for my job so they offered to make breakfast a full hour earlier so that i could take advantage of there free breakfast. Overall a great place to stay.

When I arrived to check in the A/C was not on in the lobby and it was 87 degrees outside. It was on the next morning, however. The buildings seem very old and in disrepair which explains the smells that they are trying to cover up in the lobby and the breakfast area. They offered a desktop computer in the lobby, which was helpful to me. The room was nicely decorated but one of my pillows looked like it was dropped out in the parking lot, as it had dirt all over it! The hotel was quiet there on a Wed night and it was comforting to see a family out in the courtyard playing and having a good time, so I felt more safe. The pool wasn't available to swim in yet and strangely, had rose bushes lining the way to get in and they overhung the walkway....ouch! I had a comfortable night's sleep and did NOT come away with bedbugs so I would say it was fine.

The worst part of the hotel is their breakfast.....I left grossed out and disappointed that I would have to spend more money on breakfast. The room looked nice at first glance. (see picture) I imagine they don't have enough guests to keep fresh items in stock and if that's the case, they should offer individual cereals since the cereal containers were both nearly empty and the cereal was stale. The coffee thermos felt hot but I noticed the drip pad had mold all over it! (see picture) The bread and pastries had plastic wrap over them, thankfully, but I wasn't taking the chance. The waffle maker was hot and ready but when I poured the batter into a cup to make myself a waffle, as I've done many times before elsewhere, it had water collecting on the top...it looked gross and I couldn't take the chance of having any food poisoning while on a business trip and having to meet clients then driving 5 hours home.
Overall, I would stay there if I absolutely had to again but I would first try to find another location, even for more money.

I stay there on business and love the friendly staff they are so helpful. It is a great value for the money. The rooms are clean and should there be a problem the staff takes care of it right away. It is a great place to stay on business or with the family.
