This hotel provided the 3 basics, shelter, heat, and hot water and I found no insects. Therefore, it met my ratings as "safe place to stay for the night". However, I chose which bed to sleep in based on which sheets were not stained. (As in, yes, one of our sheets were full of suspicious stains when I pulled the blankets and sheets back to check for bed bugs.) For the price we were charged for our room, it was a word I'm not allowed to place in this review. For twenty dollars more, I have stayed at a W Hotel in the last week and will be staying at a Pan Pacific in the next week...so the hotel certainly takes advantage of the Dark Lord crowd.
The staff was very polite. If you are staying at the hotel to travel to Three Floyds, it is more like a 15 minute drive to the brewery, as opposed to the 2 miles the hotel advertises. We were also told there was a shuttle for Dark Lord Days when we called, and it wasn't until we arrived that we found out that it was $10 per person each way, costing us an additional $40.
I agree with the other hotel reviewers, being right off the highway, you will hear highway traffic all night. I was woken up several times by air brakes, as well as footsteps from the room above. There is a Cracker Barrel next door, but the hotel also offers free breakfast, which was decent.
