The hotel is well maintained and very clean, inside and out. The rooms are nicely decorated, spacious and comfortable. The staff were friendly. The breakfast area is large and well maintained with a good selection of foods. The only thing missing was bananas, which most hotels offer for breakfast. The only other negative was the reluctance to give us a late check out time. We stayed two nights while I was working in Howe Indiana and I could not get back by 11:00 AM to pick up my wife. The clerk did not want to give us an extra hour until a manager finally agreed. One other observation was that the hotel advertises a "no pet" policy yet we ran into a lady with a small dog (clearly not a service animal) with her several times in the hall. Also allowing smoking on the porches was a negative for us. Overall this is a very nice hotel and I will probably stay here again when working in the area.
