“Nice for Limited Service Property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

We stayed here 4 nights for a friends wedding, When we booked we did not know it was a limited service property until seeing reviews. No daily maid service. They do it weekly as it is also an extended stay property. Knowing it was a limited service up front and what to expect made for a nice stay a little different than usual. The rooms were large and clean. We had a full refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, stove top, plates, utensils. Anytime we needed anything such as fresh towels the front desk people were very accommodating and friendly. They have an honor system area to purchase drinks, fruit and frozen food that you can microwave all at a decent price but do you give you free coffee here and you can pick up packets for the room at no charge. The exercise room was very large for the hotel with a variety of apparatus next to a decent pool. My only complaint was the TV in our room was a little washed out compared to a couple of other rooms we were in. They would have swapped it but we let it be. I would stay here again if back the area. The pillows could have been a bit more fluffy also but had enough to double up.

Room Tip: Room 100 - first floor, next to exit easy to come and go. Right down the hall form the area that the...

Dear BobP,

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to post such a kind review of our property. We appreciate that all of our hard work does not go unnoticed.

As an extended stay property, you are correct, we offer our extended stay guests housekeeping service once a week. We are happy to change out towels or provide extra of any other room items to our guests throughout their stays as needed.

I’m glad to hear that you were able to make use of some of our other amenities such as the kitchen in your room, fitness center and pool. We work hard to keep these areas up to date and clean for our guests to enjoy.

If you are ever in our area again, please don’t forget to come see us. We’d love to have you stay again.

Sincerely,
Christin G.

I thought the location of this hotel was ideal near I-65. I did not have issue with road noise, however I would recommend asking for a room facing away from the road if you can. My room had an adequate kitchenette which can offset the fact that there is not a breakfast at this hotel. The room was somewhat clean, not bad, but also not up to par with other hotels of similar level. Also, the air conditioning/heating system was spotty at times.

Dear devrie61,

Thank you for your review of our property. I am glad that you enjoyed the kitchen in your room. Our guests really seem to enjoy the convenience of them. I do apologize that the cleanliness and air conditioning/heating unit were not up to par during your stay. Those issues will be addressed with housekeeping and maintenance to ensure that they do not affect our guest's stays in the future. We would love to see you again next time you are in the area. We hope you will choose to stay with us again.

Sincerely,
Christin G.

We have stayed here several times over the last two years and while visiting family over the holidays. Staff is always very friendly and courteous. The location is great for stocking up the kitchenette and we can always use the in-hotel guest Cupboard for last minute necessities. Also appreciate the convenient guest laundry facilities for longer trips. This last trip we had a room adjoining our daughter's which was great for visiting and sharing breakfast together. Love knowing that the room will be clean and inviting at each visit.

My family stayed here for 5 days during Christmas travels. The hotel was clean, staff was friendly, and Wi-Fi was free. Our rooms on the third floor were well-maintained and the beds were comfortable. Although there is no breakfast served downstairs, the full kitchenette (fridge, microwave, and cooktop) and nearby Meijer store made it possible to fix our own breakfasts in the room and there was even a dishwasher in the room to make clean up easy! There is only housekeeping once per week, but the front desk staff was happy to give us anything we needed (toilet paper, clean towels, etc.). The location is near the interstate so don't expect a picturesque view from your window, but the hotel is a great place to stay since it is conveniently close to many Lafayette restaurants and stores along S.R. 26.

This hotel was great. We had a double room with a small kitchen that was all set up and ready to use if needed. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was nice. The whole place was clean and the staff was very friendly.

Stayed here in order to DJ the Veterans Event hosted by The Military Family Research Institute at Purdue on Nov 9th 2013. Staff at check in and out were professional and informative. The area has plenty of restaurants to choose from. The lobby, halls, and room were clean. The pool was too cold. No real complaints.

Stayed at this motel for a week at end of October, 2013 after making reservations thru Priceline. IT WAS EXACTLY THE RIGHT HOTEL AT EXACTLY THE RIGHT PRICE. Suite kitchen was COMPLETE, room was clean, bed was good, staff friendly, laundry was FREE!!

It only needs a hot tub to make it perfect for the weary traveler

Room Tip: ask for room on side away from I-65, although on the I-65 side the noise isn't bad...soothing?
