“Great stay at a great price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

Booked this hotel just for one night for a game in Indianapolis which was only 50 minutes away. We weren't going to spend much time in the hotel so I was looking for something decent at a decent price. Had planned to book the Omni or Marriott in Indy, but they were full. This is an excellent property with modern, comfortable rooms. We normally stay in very nice hotels, so it was surprising to hear my wife say "Now this is a room I could spend some time in". The rooms were modern with high quality furniture and a high quality bathroom. The kicker: $89!!! We will definitely stay at this hotel the next time we are in Lafayette!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We spent two nights at this property over the weekend. We have been to this property a number of times. It is the new Courtyard design and was built that way. It has a large area that is great to use a laptop, read, watch TV, etc.

The rooms are all the new very contemporary design, clean, comfortable, etc. Nice flat screen TV although oddly placed if you want to watch TV in bed.

They do have food although it is a very limited menu. Starbucks is also available. There are a number of restaurants close.

My one caution is that the property can be filled with sports teams. Often in the summer it is baseball teams of young kids. Noise can be an issue. You might want to check for groups when you make your reservation.

We stayed at this hotel for a family retreat. The hotel looks brand new, and service is top notch. The room was very clean, with a few great surprises. Free WiFi was offered throughout the hotel. There was a mini-fridge in the room along with a rolling computer desk. The bathroom was very modern, although lacking a bathtub. Our stay came with a $10 per person breakfast voucher, that was put well to use in the bistro. The lobby bar was open until 10 pm and featured $6.50 cocktails which seems really reasonable for a hotel bar. Outside was a (gas-powered) fire pit with waterfalls. Completely enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a rear facing room to see the waterfall from your room.

The staff was very friendly. The rooms were very spacious and clean. They had an outside area to relax and sit outside.

We did a Priceline bid for a 3 star upscale hotel in Lafayette, IN. There were only three listed for the whole town! We were on our way to a family reunion and just needed a stopover. My first bid was accepted for $60 (should've bid lower!). This facility would best be described as a motel, but it has many hotel style amenities.

The hotel was less than a mile from I-65. The staff was friendly-ALL of them greeted us with a smile and a hello. Rather unusual in my experience. Lobby and lounge areas were well lighted, clean and up to date. The property is only 2.5 years old according to a manager. There is a courtyard out back, with seating and an artificial "stream". Again, very well-maintained and inviting. There's even a gas fire pit-though the 96 degree day didn't make that a priority.

The room was very clean and nicely appointed. There were marble countertops in the bathroom and a glass shower door. Ceramic tile was in the bath area. The beds were very comfy and there was an ipod docking station in the radio next to the bed. The air conditioning was remarkably quiet.

The fitness center had 3 treadmills and some stair climber machines. All were new and good quality.

The only drawback was the pool area. Apparently, this is typical for the Courtyard franchises. The pool is TINY! It looked to be about 12 ft. by 18 ft. The hot tub was also undersized, accomodating maybe four comfortably. It was also too cold.

There is also a bar and small restaurant off the lobby. Mostly snacks and smoothies are served, though breakfast is their main focus. The cost for breakfast-no freebie here-was $9.95 pp. We didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. However, there are several restaurants inside a mile that offer more choices at a beter price. We went to Bob Evans, a brealfast favorite in parts of the midwest and south.

Next to the front desk is a small selection of snacks and, oddly, frozen meals. The rooms have microwaves, but I've not seen a hotel/motel ever sell microwaveable dishes on site!!

If, for some reason-maybe to attend a Purdue U. event-you happen to need a room in Lafayette, this is the place. Note that we booked this place for $60/night!! The list on the major internet sites was around $100/night. We've found that we're often treated as 2nd class citizens when we do a Priceline bid, but not at this place!

Great value, excellent staff, near the Interstate, but not so near that you hear the traffic. Stay here!

Room Tip: Do a Priceline or Hotwire bid. Other than dates when there is a major Purdue event taking place, yo...

This was a very comfortable place to stay. There is a touch screen in the lobby and there is also a nice library/study place to read the morning paper. The room is very comfortable. I would have, however, decorated the room with less red, but the bathroom was beautiful and I loved the shower. Great stay overall!
