While the hotel has all the amenities of a 4 star hotel, my room had a mustiness to it, and my allergies were in revolt for a while. The room has a refrigerator and coffee maker. The bathroom is adequate, but no grab bar in the tub for safety.The staff was cordial and accommodating. If people make the place, we... More

Our room smelled bad and there were stains on the carpet. The shower did not drain well so within minutes, I was standing in water. The outdoor pool looked appealing until I saw how cloudy the water was. The breakfast was not as nice as in other restaurants. The inside of the hotel was very attractive-dark wood and nice decorations,... More

My wife and I spent a night here on our way to Wisconsin. This is a very large 2-story 1980s motel with both an in-door and an out-door pool. The place has obviously been updated in the last few years but it does look a little tired. But having said that it is clean and comfortable with good beds for... More

The price of this room was comparable to any other 3 or 4 star name brand hotel, so I would expect the same quality or better. I was traveling solo and this place was not safe feeling at all. I was put in the very back building, and it seemed very sketchy to have an outside entrance but be told... More

This is a cheap hotel for a night's stay. The hotel and room was very out dated but worth the money as there was a full refrigerator and microwave and comfortable bed to sleep in. The layout of the hotel is very odd and confusing. Check in took forever as there was nobody at the front desk to check me... More

Very dated and dirty. Tub wouldn't drain. Mold on the ceiling because of vent doesn't work. All carpets need replaced. Free breakfast was a joke. Thank goodness there we're breakfast restaurants very close. Would never stay here again.

We are a military family and have been in hotels since June 1st due to a PCS move. This one has been by far the worst. The front desk lady was nice but the hotel itself needs work. The first thing we noticed was the urine/ wet dog smell of the hallway. The two beds in our room were very... More

The hotel is reasonably nice but is old. The 2 pools are nice. Equipment in the fitness center didn't work and there was an empty water bottle and no cups. The most frustrating thing was the Wifi. There was basically none because it was so slow. I could not use it at all and had to go to a restaurant... More

This is a terrible hotel. Very dirty, entry doors that are locked don't open with keys. Lots of stains on carpet in the room. The bathroom was also dirty. Stay elsewhere. Only positive is that it is near notre dame.

The beds are awful. Don't expect a good night's sleep. Sag in the middle and the edges are not firm. Others staying at the hotel had the same complaint. Breakfast was fine. The carpets were worn and stained. The indoor pool was fun especially for the children but at 10 pm the noise required management to shut it down for... More
