I've really enjoyed my stay at Fern Valley, the hotel workers from front desk to maintenance have been extremely accommodating and very personable. i'll definitely be rooming here again. the only thing that I could really see as an improvement would be to have the pool open more than weekends and a better breakfast menu, but as far as quality...

Waste Hotel in whole Indiana or I would say in whole USA. I would recommend to shut down this hotel completely. All staff & front desk people should be dismissed immediately. Specially MARK, this guy is simply horrible. Full frustrated with his job and attitude. He doesn't know how to treat customers. He put his frustrations on the customers. This...

I teach a weekly class in a couple county jails for drug addicts. And years ago I was the inmate. But I have never been in a place where I questioned my safety as much as standing in the lobby of this hotel. The a/c was out in the entire hotel so I am sure that further enraged the guests....

The absolute worst hotel (term used loosely) I have ever been in! Did not have our reservation; it was made 2 months ago. Blamed it on travel site used. Sent us to our room; it was already occupied. Place smells! No security measures. No restaurant. This is our view from the door of the room. This has been there for...

I'm going to start this review by saying that I would have NEVER stayed here based on the TA reviews, but I didn't plan the trip, so imagine my surprise when I drove up to this dump.

I came here for business and when I checked in it seemed empty. Keep in mind it's the Kentucky Derby, every hotel from miles around are full and sold out.
