the people were sooo nice 5 points for that ! Also the location is good. But damn this place is dated. I had a clean room but this place needs a complete renovation! The interior looks old but that is a taste thing. Creaky tiles in the bathroom and old carpet are not though. Also A/C and fridge would be... More

Was surprised at the high rate ($152.night) but stayed here under the assumption that it would be a newer facility with higher standards than the local alternatives. While I don't know about the relative standards between the competitors, it is not a newer facility, but a run-down one. The surprise came in the humidity of the room, which was excessive.... More

We stayed two nights. It was a very nice stay. However, I was looking forward to their indoor pool, but it was shut down during our stay. It kind of looked like it was a small pool and the hot tub was cemented over. Overall, as long as you're not going for the pool this place is great.

Our bed was comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the AC was so drafty, even in the bed across the room from it. Felt like a north wind blowing when it came on. Breakfast was excellent with fresh fruit options even along with all the hot food. Desk service was great - friendly and efficient.

Very nice and clean hotel. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was very good and area was very clean. Very quiet! I would highly recommend this hotel, very close to Amish Country and Mt. Vernon is a very nice town. Movie theater next door to hotel.

We stayed here on our way through town on a family road trip. We called last min to get the room and they were able to get us one.

Was only here one night but it is a nice place. The lady at the desk when we checked in was very polite and informed us of surrounding places. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. The refrigerator was a little loud. The breakfast was good and the lady taking care of it was very polite and keep... More

I stayed one night during the week. Overall the stay was decent. As mentioned in another review, though the room was clean, it was a little dark and felt older thus giving the impression of an unclean room. There were both firm and soft pillows to choose from on the bed. My only complaint was an older sodium type light... More
