We called for a room close to our campsite we were headed to in the morning! The hotel staff was not that polite and didnt even know the rates when I called in. When I got there the towels were not clean and the fridge and microwave were just in a pile on the floor. The top lock was not...

Bed bugs and roaches. We had change rooms 3 times because of the lack of cleanliness. We have traveled around the world and have NEVER seen a hotel like this. Do NOT stay here!!! We got stuck here due to last minute travel plans.

It's called the "Relapse Inn" by locals for a reason. Not a nice place to stay in at all. It's a place for junkies and hard partiers. Definitely don't being your kids to this place. If you are in the Lancaster area, stay at Shaw's, a historic bed and breakfast, or in one of the nicer chain hotels near the...

However, after checking in, we got the first look at the rooms. Yikes! We should have never agreed to stay there and got a refund and moved on but it was getting late...

I stayed at this"Relax Inn" last year during a trip to nearby Rushville,Ohio. It looks like it used to be a Knights Inn but now it's more like a "Don't go INN". The rooms were old and outdated, the heat didn't work. It smelled very musty and the linens were at beast "scratchy." There was a bunch of people partying...

My boyfriend and I stayed here May 22,2010 and I honestly can not think of one positive thing to say about this place. I stay at hotels a lot and have stayed at cheaper motels that are cleaner and better taken care of than this one. There were bugs in the sink and the shower. Dirty on the floor in...
