“Pay double & stay across the highway!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

My family & I stayed one night when vacationing at Holiday World. I thought we couldn't beat the price and the location -only being a few miles from Holiday World. Wrong! For starters --
The room had a smoky/musty smell to it. The bathroom was dirty. I found hair in the bath tub & on the bathroom floor when we first arrived. We paid $25 to use the Pack & Play for our 1 year old. We didn't end up using it because there was no sheet & it was dirty & smelled. (Yes -We did get our money back because we turned it in the next morning.) I usually don't wear house shoes, but sure wished I had some that evening. I didn't want to walk barefoot on the bedroom floor. If I had of known, we would have just paid double the price & stayed across the highway, or drove a few extra miles & went to Jasper, IND to stay overnight. I would not recommend staying here.

An off the highway hotel in Indiana, reasonably priced. We continued on after having dinner in Louisville, and this hotel was convenient for our road trip needs. Our room was clean, somewhat run down but the price was right. No real complaints for us despite the previous negative reviews, the staff was friendly and we slept well.

I am staying here tonight, against my better judgment. This is an "out of all other options" location. From horrible desk service, non-existent wi-fi and dirty linen... to non-functioning plumbing, a creaky elevator and dingy decor - this place has all the charm of a horror film. Please stay away. I would sooner sleep in my car. At nearly $100 per night I expected at least a functional property. Gross.

I read a lot of the reviews on here and was cautious to rent a room there, however the alternative was paying $200 a night at any of the surrounding hotels. After doing a little research it states on the website they only have free coffee and breakfast. The staff was super friendly. I found the room to be decent they do need better pillows. I talked with the manager named Lee and found him to be very knowledgeable and friendly. The reviews that said the staff is unfriendly were very untrue. I was polite to them and they were very polite to me. Compared to the prices of the other hotels you're getting what you pay for.

Prior to booking, I came across all these terrible reviews!! I was reluctant to book a reservation, however we were going to be at Holiday World for 2 days and wanted cheap rates, so we booked here. The reviews kind of stretch the truth. My only complaints are: the water pressure isn't great and the cable isn't great (but after long hours at Holiday World, whose gonna watch TV? We didn't!!) This hotel is literally 8 minutes from the Holiday World, AND you can get there on a back road rather than a busy highway with traffic!! So, take it from me: if you are spending a couple of days at Holiday World, and just need a place to sleep and shower, for a great price in a convenient location, stay here! ;-D

I called on Sunday and checked prices and was told 90 something and they were running a special for 20 percent off. Which would be around 70$. I than called around and got other rates around holiday world which were way higher than 70$. So I checked reviews on here and they all had about same reviews which was none were so great. So I called back on Monday at noon, and talked to Lee who said I should have got the room yesterday because there specials change at any given time. Ha, one day, and not a mention about tomorrow would be to late when I called Sunday. Needless to say they made up my mind where I wanted to stay which was next to holiday world at Santa lodge. I will let you know how that goes.

June 23, 2013. I turned down the sheets for my son and saw dozens of hairs (not ours). I looked at the sheets of the other bed.... BLOOD WAS ON THE SHEETS!!!! I tried calling the front office, but no answer. I went down to complain. Front desk clerk was nice and offered another room on same floor (2nd). I went to the room to inspect sheets.... HAIRS EVERYWHERE!!! I tried to get a room at another hotel near Holliday World, but no vacancies. I was then given another room on the 3rd floor. I requested the manager to come inspect the room with me. On the way to the room, manager informed me that a group of softball players were here the week before and trashed the rooms on the 2nd floor. He said maintenance helped the maids clean the rooms, and obviously did not have the same standards as reg. maids. I asked, "didn't clean the sheets???". Lee Young the manager said, "obviously not". He tells me the 3rd floor is not used as often, and he needs to shut the 2nd floor down to clean. We make it to room. Finally, clean sheets!!!! The manager did show me that to flush the toilet you have to hold handle down bc toilet didn't flush properly. Please save yourself the grief and book your reservations elsewhere!!!!!
