My wife and I opted to split the drive between New York and Toledo by stopping midway at the BW Dubois. We chose the "standard room" which meant two double beds. We offered to take a single bed (thus saving them some clean-up) when we checked in, but they insisted on the two bed option. No big deal.

The room was a tad small, but otherwise clean and well-maintained. We couldn't figure out the heating system (we were there in winter)...when we arrived the room was quite warm, we turned the dial down, but the fan kept coming on (fortunately just blowing air, not heat). We then tried turning the unit off entirely, but the unit still kept running.

The rooms are also a tad noisy--especially when the neighboring room decided to take showers at 2AM. The squeal of the hot water cranking up was quite unexpected.

Their location is in an odd sort of "not quite downtown" locale. You gotta take a funky u-turn off the main drag to get there, so access isn't the easiest. But once you get the hang of it, it's not a problem.

One plus was the breakfast--a notch above the typical "free fare" offered by most chain hotels.

Room Tip: We stayed there on Dec 23rd, and a sign noted they would be closed on BOTH Christmas Eve (starting a...

MongoSchwartz,

I am happy to see you enjoyed our breakfast, that is one of the favorite items amongst our guests. Next time you are in the area we do have larger sized rooms which have two queen beds. These rooms are located in our Conference Center and are getting ready to open back up after being renovated.

Terrible rainy day and not many places to stay, Hilton was full and recommended the BW. We were very happy to find it. Small room, but two big nice beds, frig, spotless, and all newly decorated. Nice view of open field next door, so very quite also. Had to stay an extra day and used their guest laundry after being on the road for six days. Walking distance to shopping area. They could forget the breakfast. Staff very helpful.

ddwildbird,

I am happy we were able to get you out of the terrible rainy weather! Next time your in the area you will have to stop in and see our newly renovated rooms with two queen beds in our Conference Center. These rooms would still have the view of the field!

This is a nice clean, and not overpriced motel, interesting location right next to a railroad track (although not many trains, you won't be disturbed), with a free breakfast thrown in. One thing they have which is a nice touch, is an outside grill/BBQ area with a grill, so that if you like the idea of grilling up your own steak, you can do so. Also they have a well equipped playground for kids, with slides and playground stuff. Altogether, a really nice motel. We have stayed here before, several times on our way to and from Canada, and we will again...

Room Tip: Anything I filled in as "one star", which means terrible I did so only because I had to fi...

xkdude,

Our outdoor area is very nice and I'm happy to hear you enjoy it. That is one of the areas where guest with children spend time, all year round. This past winter I even saw two boys building snow forts using the walls of the playground for protection from snowballs. We hope to see you again in the near future.

My husband and I stay here at least twice a year while visiting relatives. The breakfast is fantastic, the room spotless and ultra comfy and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. We've never had a bad experience, and will continue to keep staying here. Especially love the jacuzzi suite!

Our Whirlpool Suites are very nice! This winter/spring they are undergoing renovations to give them an update look and feel and should open back up here in May/June. We can't wait for you to come back see them and tell us what you think.

Very nice hotel. I was a little worried at first with having children & there being no pool, but we did receive free passes to the YMCA that was nearby, which was okay. The hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, the free breakfast was great & the kids enjoyed the small playground. The location is great, a lot of stores and restaurants right down the road. I was very impressed.
