“downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

I've stopped here three times within the last year and wouldn't hesitate to go back; rooms are very comfortable and well appointed.

Location is good for downtown and the casino plus there is a few bars close by. I would avoid the casino and the adjoining area.

Waterfront is close by and plenty to do in the immediate area.

Breakfast is okay, mainly fruit, toast etc.

We parked as most bikers do, under the awning by the front and weren't told it wasn't ok by the front desk. Later, security placed a huge orange STICKER on our bike. Mgt told us they didn't want the stigma of "bikers" staying there!! Prejudice!

Thank you for sharing your recent experience. As I mentioned to you in my email, we are not trying to make bikers feel "unwelcomed". Our hotel entrance is not large enough for vehicles to park there long term and the area must be clear at all times for emergency vehicles. We do have a designated area for motorcycles within our valet lot adjacent to the hotel. We decided on this area as it was away from our designated smoking area for hotel guests thinking that there would be less foot traffic reducing any risk of tampering. We definitely did not convey this well to you, our valued guests. I have shared our experience with our team so they can be more forthcoming to future guests. As I mentioned, because of your poor experience, we have refunded your charges. We hope to win you back the next time you visit Evansville.

We spent a nite here to enjoy the casino & take in the D-Day Re-enactment. Next visit I'd like to be on the 3rd floor so our view wouldn't be marred by the walkway. I agree with the previous review - the bed was wonderful! If I could've packed it in my bag it would have come home with me! The mattress 7 bedding was superb! Housekeeping does a great job of making them picture perfect but still manageable to get in to and enjoy. The continental breakfast offering was good. Altho, since it is served in what is a bar at nite, the seating is a bit awkward for eating. Luckily, the weather was good so we went outside to the patio area.
The hotel is convenient to the casino with a walkway so you don't have to bother crossing the road. Bit odd with going up an elevator, across & down an elevator if one wants to go to other places. Staff was professional & very helpful. We would certainly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the front of the building but 3rd flr or above. Our room on 2nd flr, the view was skewed by...

Le Merigot is an awesome hotel! The bed was fantastic. I can no longer sleep in my bed at home it was so comfortable! My husband and I went to a wedding on Saturday night (reception at the conference center---great reception, lovely decor and friendly staff) and decided we would take a nap before going out, set our alarm and then decided we weren't getting up when it went off because we were so comfortable....it was only 11 on a Saturday night. We never go to bed that early on a Saturday night. The room was gorgeous and just what we needed for a weekend away. David and Whitney really took care of us during our stay!

Room Tip: The hotel faces to the sides so that every room can have a view of the river. It may not be head on...

Only had time to stay one night. The staff was efficient and friendly. The rooms featured wonderful bedding and the shower/bathroom was a delight! There is a neat Irish pub and a sports bar adjacent to the hotel. Very good location if you don't want to move the car once you arrive. As for the casino, it is the old "boat" style and was a let down. The bar in the hotel was modern and had a nice design! The complimentary continental breakfast was tasty and well presented. Overall I would stay again and recommend it!

Room Tip: River view is nice!

The service here is no better than the cookie-cutter Comfort Inns & such. But for accommodations, design, and amenities (e.g. omni-directional shower), this hotel legitimately lays claim to "boutique." And it's a quiet, unfrenetic alternative to its next-door sister Tropicana. An excellent value for the price.

Overall the hotel was in pretty good shape. The room was nice, clean, with modern amenities. The buffet next door at the Tropicana is pretty lame. Imagine the stuff Golden Corral would throw away being served there. The Ra Ri Irish Pub next the hotel is a much better deal with all beers being reasonably priced. The casino had a nice selection of machines and table games, unfortunately the smell of smoke is pretty over powering. Even for smokers. They could do wonders if they ever changed the air filters. But the biggest negative was that they offered a military rate when I booked the room then I was screwed when I got there and had to pay almost twice what the military rate was. I understand they have to make money, but the bait and switch is a little predatory.

I'm not sure what happened, but would like to know more so that we can make the necessary adjustments and prevent your experience from happening to other guests. Please know that respect all our guests and want to do right by them. Please contact the hotel and ask to speak with me.
