“Close to Purdue campus”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

Brought our daughter back to Purdue this past weekend. We travel there from northern Wisconsin and always stay two nights in West Lafayette. As the prior reviews point out this property was recently taken over by Sheraton. Having stayed there many times under the prior ownership I have noted the following changes. The bedding has been upgraded. Shampoo, Conditioner and bath soap is now in a wall attached dispenser. TV’s are now 42 inch HD sets with a good selection of programming. The entire property is wireless and does not dropout in the overnight hours if you leave your I-phone apps running. Bar prices have increased with beer selling for 4.50 a glass. The Tailgates sports bar and atrium breakfast restaurant remain. The location of the property is great being only 5 minutes from campus. This is a major plus in that most hotels are east of campus and depending on the time of day can take 20 minutes to get back to Purdue. Finally, the hotel is dated but clean and functional. If you want quiet, request an outside room away from the pool area and you’ll be fine.

Room Tip: You can have a room poolside but can be noisey if you turn in before the pool closes. It has not be...

I chose this hotel because of my trust in Sheraton brand but discovered that it is far from the level of service nor comfort of other Sheratons that I stayed in other parts of the world. The hotel is noisy, the walls are very thin, rooms are below average, the service is lousy. I think sheraton must seriously consider taking out its logo, or make a serious upgrade of both management and of the facilities. Shopping center Walmart is across the street, so very convenient if you have shopping needs but far away from city center compared with other chain hotels. If you are obliged to stay ask for rooms away from the pool and breakfast area. Air conditioning extremely noisy equipment in the rooms!,

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that are far away from the pool and from breakfast area,

Clean, safe, 2 pools, quiet, good breakfast. Breakfast was $10 on w/e for buffet was very very good.. Inside and outside pools. Gathering places available. Gave us a private breakfast room for extended family time. Very, very clean. No fridge or microwave. Beds very comfy--4 pillows on every bed. Walmart is across the road and restaurants within a few blocks. If your room looks down into pool area you can hear even soft conversation, so if that bothers you ask for a room elsewhere. It is quiet by 10:30 when it closes. Also there was a blinking red light on the smoke alarm over my bed that bothered me.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the pool are noisy until 10 pm and have no window to outside, but they are closer to pa...

Really, not a bad hotel EXCEPT...

This is my third time to this hotel. Rooms nicely appointed (the gold upgrade room that is) BUT, if you intend to sleep before 10:30 PM forget it. That is when the indoor pool closes and when the piercing, screaming, echoing, high pitched voices from the seemingly ever-present kid-groups in the hotel ceases. Seems like every room in the hotel is penetrated. It is mostly impossible to avoid the noise, even after several room moves! Unfortunately I must arise early for work, so very irritating. They really need to work on soundproofing the rooms. I am working on findiing another hotel, 3 times at this one and 3X the same problem. Staff very coy about the issue and a lot of lip service but no action to resolve the issue.

Room Tip: Impossible to choose a good room beacause of the noise problem, otherwise the rooms are very nice. R...

I have stayed here before it became a Sheraton property. Mostly hated the place. The hotel is saddled with awful architecture. We stayed in a suite, which I highly recommend. It was quiet. Stay away from any food service. I do not have confidence in the food. Had a breakfast that was swimming in grease. The indoor pool is overwhelming with the smell of chlorine- which permeates much of the property. There is an outdoor pool, which is tiny, but nice on sunny days. My husband always complained about the microscopic toilets. BIG NEWS. Sheraton has replaced the toilets, so we can't complain! The location is excellent for visiting people and institutions in and around West Lafayette. I have found the employees to be odd acting; that has lessened with the change to a Sheraton property. However, it sometimes is difficult to get the employees to respond appropriately. You are within walking distance of Applebees and Walmart - welcome to the Midwest.

I stayed at the hotel before it was upgraded. It is much nicer. Good desks and chairs for work. Good wifi. Great little gym (I value such things more than most) with weights and TWO elliptical machines and two treadmills and more! Desk service was nice to us. Late checkout was fine with them unlike another Four Points location on this trip. Nothing off the charts, but a good functional stay.

We stayed at this property the end of April with a group of about 30 people in town for a volleyball tournament. The property is an older hotel which was converted to a 4 Points brand. The rooms were nice but the bathroom area is very small. The pool/game are indoors served us well. The young ladies swam and had fun while the parents set in the lounging area with beverages and had great conversation.

The staff was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Although this property is not a "new" point, it served our needs and I would stay here again.
