“I've paid less for more”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2006

I booked the "executive suite" on 12/28/06 because members from our family were visiting from out of town and we thought it would be fun to stay overnight in one place. I have paid way less to have much more from a hotel chain. The Executive Suite looked like it had not been updated since the 70's, when was the last time you saw a console TV? I had to "beg" for bath towels, three towels please, as only wash cloths and hand towels were in the bathroom when we arrived, the front desk man seemed put out. I did not see any mouse droppings as mentioned in earlier review, but it would not have surprised me. The hotel is in need of rennovation and a good cleaning. Our other family members were booked in the Jaccuzzi Suite, and outside their door there was a "spot" that the kids joked and said someone had "barfed." The hotel is Pet Friendly, and there is a laundry and gym, but the hot breakfast advertised was "just OK." When we asked the attendant at 8:00 AM if there was anymore bacon, she said only if she had to Make Some More. The Breakfast was advertised until 9:30 AM. I would say if you want to stay in Anderson there are better choices across the way at the Fairfield Inn or the Hampton Inn down the road. The major chains seem to keep their facilities standard in upkeep and decor. If you are looking for a "flash back" to the 70's then this is your place, at $88 w/tax I have been places where I have received MUCH BETTER treatment and value for the price.

  • Liked — location near the highway
  • Disliked — the breakfast which was suppose to be the highlight
  • Tips/Secrets — call ahead and ask when the room was last cleaned and if there are towels for the bath

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2005

We stayed at the Lees Inn in Anderson Indiana while traveling to visit family. We had already booked online but noticed they were running a special on a Jacuzzi suite so we asked if we could upgrade. They did so for free which was a pleasant surprise. The toilet kept flushing throughout the night until my husband shut the water off to it. I called the front desk and they offered to change rooms but it was already 4am. The bed left a lot to be desired and the Jacuzzi itself while it was large, took at least 30 minutes to fill and the jets were so loud you couldn't hear the TV or a conversation. The room and restroom were clean and the hot breakfast they served was good. Overall, an okay experience. The lobby was beautiful. The gym was like a closet and it doesn't have a pool.

This was a beautiful hotel that I stumbled upon while driving down I-69. The lobby was wonderful when I walked inside and was greeted by a smiling face. The rooms were clean and they had a guest shoppe for items for my stay that I had forgotten. They also had a guest laundry facility for laundry items that I needed to take care of that evening. The rooms were very nicely decorated and spacious. I will reccommend Lees Inn & Suites to all my family and friends in the future!
