We were just overnighting here and chose this hotel. Its in a convenient location and close to the university if that matters to you.

Had a King room. Room was small but space was efficiently used. Had a fridge, microwave and sitting chair. Clean and kept up. So it seemed that this would be a pretty good room. A few challenges ensued.

When we got into the room the smoke detector was doing the annoying beep thing every 30 seconds. Reported it and cudos to maintenance they fixed it right away.

In the morning we found out that the shower had a very weak flow, I think the showerhead was broken and you couldn't adjust it to any other setting.

Since we like the AC/fan running overnight we didn't think anything about the fact that it was running when we got into the room at about 3 in the afternoon. But when I went to shut it off in the morning, that wasn't possible. All the functions worked but you couldn't turn it off.

So while this was not the best stay it was not a show stopper.

So the good news is that they are renovating this property and should be in much better shape in 5 or 6 months. The renovations they were doing did not impact our stay.

Continental breakfast small but OK. Decent looking pool area. This hotel is right on US 30 and its really busy. We had the AC/fan running so didn't notice any road noise till about 05:30. Ask for room on the backside of the hotel.

Several eating establishments from a great steakhouse to Bob Evan's to Wendy's within walking distance.

Do your homework before you stay here.

We arrived after a ten hour drive, during our family road trip across the country. Staff were nice, pool is closed for renovations - which is a shame as that's one of the reasons why we booked (i.e., nice to have a pool and breakfast when travelling with children). Hallway carpets need a vacuum and the wall paper in the bathrom was peeling. Comfy beds, good breakfast. Not quite the Marriott standard we are used to, but definitely not a budget hotel.

Room tip: If possible try to get a room OFF of the highway side.

Stayed here going from Indiana Beach amusement park to Ohio

Very nice stay. Room was great - had a suite which was very spacious including a sitting room, fridge and big bathroom. Lots of outlets and great Wi-Fi

The staff here is exceptional helping us with dinner (Industrial Revolution -really good!) and then helped us with a dental emergency. Nice to have someone go above and beyond and realize our predicament.

Very nice property.

Room and property very clean. Plenty of hot water.

Breakfast...poor at best, except muffins. TV equipment below norm; lousy elongated picture, channel controls 20 years old...come on guys.

Room smaller than expected.

If the stay was <$80 -$85/night I would understand

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. While I am pleased you enjoyed our clean property and hot water. I am concerned for the lower breakfast scores as we usually score very highly for breakfast.
