This was my 3rd stay in three years and I must say that it was very average and that's being generous. The service was off point, in fact I'm still waiting for the return call to answer a basic question I he'd about the HVAC system. The room was okay, but the the towels and finish seemed on the cheap... More

Clean quiet rooms. Check in easy. Nice pool and hot tub. Breakfast offered a great variety of food. The iowa machine shed is right next door and has great food as well. Free wifi and private parking. Would stay again.

I have stayed at this hotel a couple times before. The last time was on the top floor and everything was great. The first time there was an issue with the bathroom pocket door, which I experienced this time as well in Room 143. The little latch sticks out and doesn’t work the way it should (I don’t know if...

The room was clean and neat. The pool area was very nice too. We traveled from Flatwoods KY to visit our granddaughter for the weekend. The spa jets were broken and that was kind of a bummer but it was still warm and relaxing. The breakfast was good and the staff was very kind and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Sleep Inn two nights and it was clean except there is a smell when you walk into the hotel and our room has a smell, don't know it was from the smell of sewer gas from the shower. Breakfast was good. We ate the Machine Shed next to them for other meals. There is noise being... More

So the WiFi is great when it works. It would be better if they had system limiters, but if you suggest this you get a lot of excuses. The walls are paper thin so pray you don't have any screamers on your floor. Lastly there was an odd odor in the room and was traced back to the shower drain.... More

Check in was poor. Process was easy but the front desk clerk never smiled or gave any kind of friendly response. Toilet seat was lose. TV didn't work, when I inquired about the problem the same front desk clerk said she didn't know what to do about the problem. Table/desk had silverfish running around on top and bottom of light....

After a long drive I was pleasantly greeted. Room was fabulous. Clean and everything worked well. Breakfast area was clean and well organized. Tv worked well and plenty of outlets for charging.

The customer service at this hotel was fantastic. Dustin did a great job at the front desk and handled a difficult situation regarding our room professionally and courteously. The rooms were clean, the hotel was clean, and the beds were comfortable. I would recommend this hotel.

We stay in hotels all over the country and this hotel is way overpriced for what you get. We used points (thank goodness). The bathroom door is a pullout type which was annoying. The shower door had what appeared to be mold along the outside bottom. No bathtub. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioner worked well. The most... More
