The good news is the beds are firm and the rooms safe in this worn hotel that needs renovation. We also liked the lobby with two rocking chairs and two gliders. The continental breakfast. advertised as just bagels and coffee also offered cinnamon raisin and white bread for toasting, as well as hot cocoa for the kids. One other big plus: lots of stations on the cable TV.
But . . . our window screen was ripped, and exactly half of the screens on the first-floor windows were missing. Fortunately the missing screens did not mean someone could enter the rooms, as the sliding windows are opposite the screen side, but it doesn't give you a comfortable feeling seeing so many window screens gone. The side and back doors are locked throughout the day, so your card key is the only way in. That's good, but our bathroom had missing caulking and some mold close to the tub. The friendly office staff do the best they can with a tired hotel that seems in need of more maintenance and updating in the rooms. But you will like the walking distance to Perkins and Cracker Barrel restaurants. And you will get a good night's sleep for almost half the price of the four fancier hotels that surround the Fairway. Great location just off exit 92 of the Indiana toll road.
