The hotel is an older former Super 8 (I believe) run by a nice Indian family. Room old and dated but clean with nice mattress and VERY hot water. Decent cable TV and pretty quiet. A little dirty around the edges and from the outside appears a little sketchy but we never felt uncomfortable. Overall a nice overnight stay with... More

Used to stay here before the holiday inn opened many years ago. Really a very old place. Lousy beds, noisy air conditioning etc. no services at all. stay at the holiday inn express or take the time to drive elsewhere. The b&b in town is supposed to be ok.

I was stranded at this motel for 3 days due to car trouble. The owners were very accommodating. It's not fancy but is clean, well-kept and very reasonable. The bed was especially comfortable. My only complaint is that no ice was available during my stay. It was winter, but guests still need ice. I recommend this motel -- especially for... More

Found this motel on a site. Reserved it for a quick passing through. We arrived around 10:30 p.m. & understandably had to ring the bell for the office. Upon entering the gentleman (I'm assuming an owner, Middle Eastern or Indian, not sure & no! I'm not racial profiling just stating a fact) was sleepy & not very engaging. A young... More

This building has been here for many, many years and has fallen into disrepair and filth. Air conditioner did not work, carpet was filthy, bugs on the floor, stains on the bed spread. Also the room smelled very strongly of industrial deodorant whih smelled thru the night. The manager, receptionist and maintenance man (all the same fellow) was pleasant and... More

Now called Interstate Motel, but the same place I've been returning to for years. Friendly staff. Clean accommodations, and VERY reasonably priced. Close to the interstate. Easy on/off. Certainly, not a destination motel, but works for me. I've been staying there twice a year for almost a decade. No complaints. Good value!

Very clean, fair prices, comfortable bed. Fast check in, convenient location. Recently updated rooms, new plumbing fixtures. This is about as good as it gets with an independent. Highly recommend. Win.

I was skeptical. My elderly parents I was driving back to Michigan from Florida do not....EVER...want to pay more than $70/night for a hotel while on the road. I simply put up with bad hotels on our twice-annual journey. They didn't want to spend $90/night at the only other hotel at this exit so we defaulted to Knights Inn. Again,... More

Despite my initial skepticism about Knights Inn Motels, I read Trip Advisor reviews and decided to make a reservation. We checked in Thanksgiving night en route to northeastern Indiana. The room was immaculate, probably one of the cleanest motels at any price I've ever visited. Yes, the motel looks like it was built in 1962, and the amenities are very... More
