We chose to stay here for a college visit at Purdue. Really any hotel you choose in West Lafayette is close to the campus. There were 4 of us, myself, my husband, and two teens. They only offered 2 double beds so that is what we got. Upon entering the hotel, it looks very nice and newly remodeled and very modern. Everything is open, so our third floor room overlooked the pool and the dining room. We were in room 314. The room obviously had attempts made at upgrading, but it is was as if they stopped at the bathroom. They added granite counter tops to the sink area, and upgraded with nice mirrors and accessories. Then enter the bathroom which held the toilet and shower tub. The fixtures were old and when you turned on the shower, it sounded as if the pipes would explode. That sound remained throughout the whole shower and any time it was turned on. The towel bar fell off as soon as a wet towel was hung on it. I typically have the fan on the A/C run all night to drown out hotel noise, but this fan was not working. The A/C worked fine, but the fan did not remain on even when turned on. So, about 5am, you begin to hear sounds of staff setting up for breakfast, followed by the steady clinking of dishes from people beginning to eat at 6:30 am. We slept awful, and it is never comfortable to try to squeeze 2 people in double beds. We are not big people, but we are used to a king sized bed at home, but sleep comfortably in queens in hotels. The breakfast was good with a lot of variety on the buffet, including made to order omelets and waffles. However, unless you upgrade top the breakfast package with your AAA membership, you are paying for breakfast. Even then, it only included 2 breakfasts, so our stay ended up being 129.00 plus tax and the cost of 2 additional breakfasts. The staff was friendly, and checking in and out was easy, but there was no express check out offered.
