The only reason I am giving one star is because there isn't an option for zero stars. I was in Vincennes for business and am originally from an area not too far away so I knew that Executive Inn is supposed to be a nice hotel. I even had the guests at my wedding stay at the one in Owensboro, KY (which is VERY nice). There aren't many options in town so I figured this would be a good place to stay until I could scope out the other area hotels.
When showing up I noticed that the outside appeared extremely run down. Knowing that it is an old facility I wrote it off and went ahead and checked in. The staff was not professional or one you would expect to be working at a hotel. She was dressed in a t-shirt with holes in it and jeans, being more fit for a run-down motel 50 miles away from civilization.
The restaurant there has been closed for 5 years so I had to leave to eat, which I did not want to do since I got there late. On my way up to the room, I was unimpressed with the elevator, which had holes punched in it, stunk of stale cigarettes, and the buttons were missing.
When I put my key in the slot and opened the door, the door had to be pushed open because the slide lock was so close to being engaged. The light by the door did not work so I had to walk in the dark to find another switch. The ceiling was falling in so there were pieces of it laying all over the floor/bed/couch/table. The 19" TV was from the early 90's at best. It did not fit in the big room (that is the only "compliment" I will give, but the space was not used very well).
The bed was very close to being the most uncomfortable I've ever stayed in...and I've spent 6 months in Kuwait/Iraq where the beds (on the lucky nights) were extremely bad.
I tried connecting to the wireless internet that is offered and had trouble. I contacted the front desk to ask why and they informed me that you have to OPEN YOUR DOOR to get access to the internet because it isn't strong enough to go through it. After trying that, I was constantly being kicked off because signal was so low.
In the morning I went in to take a shower and there was long hair strands EVERYWHERE in it. (I have short, cropped hair so it was not mine.) The water pressure was non-existant at best. The shower curtain was so light that it was consistantly being sucked in by the heat so it was always in contact with my body. That was pretty disgusting when I thought about how many other people had taken showers there and it apparently had not been cleaned in a LONG time. After my "shower" I tried to dry off but needed to use two towels because they are so thin that just drying off my hair and upper body the first one was soaked.
After FINALLY leaving my room for the last time I was looking forward to having a good breakfast before beginning my day, but was disappointed when there was no food available. Yes, I'm sure that they do not advertise a continental breakfast but that is a feature that is mostly expected by most people who travel as much as I do.
I would NOT recommend anyone staying at this hotel. It is so bad that I would not even recommend it to young singles who are looking for a room to stay in after a long night of drinking in the night club that is located within the hotel. Next time I will be staying either at the Comfort Suites there in Vincennes (from the outside it appears to be fairly nice) or the Holiday Inn Express in Washington (which is always a good option as a hotel and is only a few miles down the road).
The hotel itself should follow suite of the restaurant that had been located inside and CLOSE ITS DOORS FOR GOOD or it should close for a year or two and be completely gutted and remodeled.
