“Two nights during this trip.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

This was part of a several day trip through Indiana and Kentucky. Due to a large convention in Louisville at this time, I was told the hotels I usually stay in were either booked or had blocked the rooms for that particular venue. I booked a room at this hotel at the last minute and was very pleasantly surprised. The room was very nice and comfortable. The location was close enough to Louisville to be easily accessible and being near the interstate, it was an easy twenty five minute drive to downtown from there. The room was very nice and came with a king sized bed. It was very clean and comfortable. I had a room facing the interstate and even though I could see the traffic, noise was not a factor at all. They served a continental breakfast which my overall impression of was okay. There was no place to really sit and eat it there but the selection was very good. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. This is not part of a national chain so if you are concerned about gaining points for a particular brand, this isn't the place to stay. If you looking for a nice hotel that offers good value and service, this is the place to stay. There are many good restaurants in the area (some with delivery) so going out for dinner was an easy thing after a long day. If you need to be in this area, I would recommend this place. The area of southern Indiana is fascinating area with lots of attractions too. Not sure if they offered a fitness room of any kind but typically I only use those on extended business trips so it wasn't a factor. Overall this was a good choice for me. I would stay there again on my next trip through this area.

Room Tip: Ground floor and away from the interstate would be my choice even though the noise from the highway...

The PM staff were incredible. Rooms were booked all over due to basketball with jacked up prices. We pd $ 59.99 and the staff went out of their way to accommodate my husband who is handicapped. Kudos to you guys! Rooms were spotless and enjoyable. Thanks!

We made a big mistake by believing the reviews on this motel!!! By booking on Hotels.com, we couldn't cancel the same day so we decided to try it, in spite of it's very dated and decrepit facade. Our first room had ripped and stained carpet & stained bedspread. We requested another room and were put into another room that had better carpet, stained bed spread and smelled like an ash tray. We proceeded to wipe everything with pina-colada scented hand wipes and stuck some in the HVAC grill and turned on the fan. After a half hour of trying to de-stink the room, we are still trying to decide if we should try to find another hotel, or tuff it out and get a few hours of sleep.

If you are considering staying here, I strongly suggest you inspect (and smell your room) before registering!

I think Tripadvisor should investigate the "excellent" reviews as they have to be bogus. These bogus reviews take away from the trust we have always placed in the review process.

Poor would be the correct rating!

Larryandsally - We apologize for your bad experience at our Mariann Travel Inn in Scottsburg IN. Up until 2 years ago the state of IN allowed for motels to have both smoking and non-smoking rooms. Our property is over 40 years old and about half of our rooms were smoking for all those years. It's very difficult to get the smoking smell out after all those years but we have been trying. We've instructed our staff when a guest requests a room change to tell the guest that the room was a smoking room in the past and still has a lingering smoky smell. Some people are ok with that but some are more sensitive. Again out apologies.

By the way all of our customer comments and ratings are valid and we respond to 100% regardless of the comments and ratings.

I just cant believe these good reviews.This is honestly what happened to us.Driving from Tarpon springs,we made it to Scottsburg on the way back to WI.I said to my wife we should give the mom and pop Mariann a try.Well I was wrong again.Booked the room and almost got knocked over by the smoke smell.We went back to change our room and found the next room with a big old mushy soap spot on the tub,from last person staying there,never even wiped...eeeewww.Next hair all over the sink.That was it, we got our money back and left and my wife was right again.Just being honest.

Scott A. - We apologize for your bad experience at our Mariann Travel Inn. As hard as we try occasionally we screw up. On the smoking smell the state of IN made all motels and hotels become smoke-free and it's been difficult to remove the smoke smell that have accumulated over many years from some of the rooms. Our front desk should have told you that some of our rooms had been smoking rooms in the past and put you in a non-smoking room assuming one was available.

On the cleaning issue there is no excuse and your comments have been forwarded to our manager and head of housekeeping for review.

We hope you'll give us another chance in the future. Our Trip Advisor ratings is something that we are very proud of and we work hard to maintain the top rating in Scottsburg.

The king bed was comfortable. The room was clean, had a flat screen TV & there is free WiFi. Front desk lady was friendly & helpful. Permanent bath mat in the tub. The complimentary breakfast included juice, coffee, Krispy Kreme doughnuts, fruit, breads, oatmeal. What is really needed are tables & chairs to sit down for breakfast instead of four covered chairs & a coffee table. Would stay here again. Two floors, no elevator.

A very nice surprise! Have stayed in other hotels in Scottsburg, and this property is the best by far. Stayed for 2 nights. Very friendly and welcoming staff. The rooms are quite spacious with lots of room to relax and chill out. The rooms are very clean, fresh, and well taken care of. Easy access to interstate and restaurants. The breakfast is continental and nothing big here. Though not a brand name property, this is an excellent place to stay and a great value for your money. Will definitely stay here the next time we are in the area.

Room Tip: King rooms. Higher floor.

Very nice place to stay after a long day of driving, quick hassle free check in, very friendly lady at the front desk even tho I checked in at midnight with no reservation. The place is a little dated but very clean. Will come back any time.
