We stayed here as a team for a volleyball tournament. At check-in, Lisa greeted us with a smile and was very friendly and got us our keys very quickly. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Nothing fancy, but CLEAN! Beds were comfortable, bathroom was cleaned every day, with fresh linens. The hotel also has a lounge located right next...

Several family members stayed here while attending a funeral. The staff accommodated early check-in as well as providing a comfortable place to meet and socialize. They even recovered an important document left in one of the rooms.

I needed a place to throw an awards party for my Cub Scouts where they could swim. The employees at American Inn bent over backwards to make it happen for me. My scouts had a great time swimming and playing.

A few little tweaks and this would have been an above average review. Upon receiving our room, we noted that the alarm clock was not working, it was reasonably functional after moving to a different outlet, but the battery latch was missing on bottom of clock, so battery was just hanging.. duct tape would be an easy fix :).
