“we're going back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

It's not very often that a hotel passes one's expectations, but this one certainly does. We chose the package that included meal vouchers. Upon arrival we found that due to a computer glitch, our reservation did not show up, but the young lady working the desk immediately got us a room like the one I had reserved and at the same price. The room was spacious and clean, and the in room coffee maker was great! The beds were comfortable, and even though there were several children in the adjoining room, we did not hear them at all. The only way we knew we were there was that we had seen them entering the room with their parents When we went to dinner, the waitress was extremely accomodating, answering all or our questions regarding the items on the menu (my husband has special dietary needs). The food was excellent. The service and food for the following morning's breakfast were also great. We did not use the pools or hot tub (no time) but did enjoy the entertainment in the lounge. The fact that the entire hotel (including the lounge) is smoke-free is a huge plus for us, as my husband is allergic to cigarette smoke.

Room Tip: Follow up after making online reservations so computer glitches don't get you!

Big rooms, breakfast AND dinner, 2 pools, a hot tub, WiFi and great service all for under $100!

Stopped here after local merchant recommended this hotel. What a value! Stayed Friday and Saturday. Restaurant was get good and offered live entertainment both nights in the lounge area.

Indoor pool was coffee warm and the hot tub was actually hot!

WiFi was string and fast in our spacious room.

Staff was helpful and the hotel was clean.

Yes, this hotel is older but it is charming and offers outstanding value.

Highly recommended.

My eight year old son and I stayed here as part of a boys night out staycation. The room was nice and my son loved the pool. The great thing about this hotel is that dinner and breakfast are included in the price. It's not just some small setup in the lobby but rather a very nice "real" restaurant with a huge menu and excellent food. We stayed on a Saturday night and got to take advantage of their Sunday buffet that had every food imaginable. You just can't beat the value for what you get. We would have spent another $40.00 on food alone had we stayed somewhere else.

Thank you for a great review! If you come back this summer you can enjoy our larger outdoor pool where we are now serving food and drinks "poolside". Pina coladas anyone?

A real find. My sister recommended Don Hall's and we are so glad we listened. We paid the same price as one of the "Choice" hotels and had a fantastic dinner included. Our room was clean, spacious and welcoming. The bathroom/vanity area is separated from the sleep area by a pocket door. What a great idea! We have been guests at Hilton, Radisson and other bigger names but those folks could learn something from Don Hall's Guesthouse.

Stayed here 4 nights for a local job interview (I'm from out of state) - the company paid for the first 3 nights, I stayed an extra night and drove 350 miles back home.

That being said, the staff were excellent - Cindy? and the gals at the front desk were always attentive, informative, and very cheerful, also great with local directions and Fort Wayne area information. I had a great late-nite conversation with an older gentleman (works the front desk, sorry - I think his name was Mike...?) and he was a local community theater actor and playwright.....great to talk with him about late-night dining options (1am!) and also to get a feel what the local arts and music scene is like. Everyone from the maids to the Housekeeping Mgr. from West Africa to the servers - James at the bar always was 'quick on the draw' with great humor, jokes, and local info, and Blair the server at breakfast (wonderful personality) as well as ALL the servers made breakfast a 15-minute stop, from sit-down to paying the tab - and I had free, hot, fast dinner and breakfast vouchers with my room.

Room was business-oriented and comfortable - appreciated the table and chairs in the corner to do my work and business stuff. Clean bathroom, clean beds, rooms smelled fresh and were cleaned daily. Heated tile in the bathroom made hopping out of bed in the mornings great! Thanks to all the staff for a great stay and great service!

Room Tip: If you are traveling in the summer - the courtyard rooms - odd numbers might be nice. Only a short w...

I have read the other reviews and have to disagree w/the bad ones, yes it is an older hotel but I found that to be charming. I loved the encloves for the entrances to the rooms (if you have an inside room) Since it is an older hotel it still has the bigger rooms and I love that the vanity area of the bathroom is seperate from the toilet and shower. We did the room w/the meals and the restaurant is very good, very good service and good options with the meal plan, the breakfast buffet on Sundays is amazing. We had no problems with checking in or out and yes they still use keys but again that is part of the charm. The absolute best part was the indoor pool, it was actually warm enough to swim in, most hotel pools are too cold. It is spacious and has a hottub also. They also have an outdoor pool with a very nice courtyard area but we were there in the winter. Also the location is good, in one direction there is a shopping center w/walmart etc and in the other direction is Meijer and many restaurants around, although you can get good meals at the hotel so I would say eat there unless you want fast food. I would not hesitate to stay there again, it is a great value!

Room Tip: There are rooms with entrances from outside. And there are rooms with indoor entrances and those als...
