I'm a native of Vincennes. Born there. Lived there til I graduated from high school. And have been returning from more than 50 years of weddings, anniversaries, deaths, and best friend visits. Over that time I've stayed in just about every motel in town -- past and present. With that database of Vincennes motel experiences for comparison, I can honestly say: This is one of the best!
Large well-kept rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice pool. Great breakfast. Comfortable beds. Reasonably convenient location. What more could you possibly expect in a moderately-priced chain motel? But wait -- there's more --
The staff actually know why the street they're on is named "Battery Place"! (And it's NOT because the area was an encampment for a battery of soldiers, as one guest insisted to me. It's because that whole area of development was once the site of an Autolite battery factory. Ok, so maybe you think it's a small thing that the staff know that. I don't; I think it's an indication of management that cares, that makes sure the front desk is informed about the area and can answer guests' questions with more than "I dunno." They can give good directions. They can make recommendations on what food and drink you'll find where (and p.s. Vincennes is short on restaurants that serve alcohol, so if you want wine with dinner it is smart to ask where you can get it.)
I felt like I was with neighbors, not a bunch of chain motel clones. I'll be using it as my base of operations for future visits "home."
