Rarely does Trip Advisor let me down, but this is definitely one of those times. This place is old. It smells musty in parts. Perhaps the most flagrant deception, the sheets in our room are pilled. They are thin. The guy at the front desk was incredibly friendly and accommodating, but after that, there is nothing good to be said...

Dear 50onthego, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay with us. We certainly appreciate your nice feedback on our front desk staff. On the other hand, it is regrettable to know that you found our hotel to be dated. Reviews like yours are very valuable as they enable us to target areas we need...

The hotel was great and has a nice breakfast. The main reason we selected the hotel was to use the pool. Just know that non-guests can also use the pool if they pay. We were looking for some nice relaxing time in the pool, but there were so many screaming kids we could not use it at night, after 6:30pm....

We had a wonderful time at the hotel. Kind staff, clean facility and good breakfast. The pool and hot tub was nice and clean. Rooms were large and clean. Beds extremely comfortable. I like the different pillow choices.

We stay at many HIE and they are all great, that's why we seek them out! So I try to think of something that makes each one stand out. This one was the pool. We don't normally use the pool, but after a great meal at a local restaurant, we needed some exercise. I don't know what the temp was,...

Great service, nice pool area, and breakfast was phenomenal! The room looked great and was well taken care of. There was no problems at all. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel to stay in. I highly reccommend!

Great, productive business trip set up by a good night's rest in Deforest. Would stay there again. Excellent exercise room and pool. Lots of fast food and sit down eating. Some shopping also around and available.

The hotel is convenient to the interstate and has a very hot whirlpool. The staff was friendly and the free cheese curds were an interesting complimentary gift. It is quiet, clean and has comfy pillows.

8:30 am. COFFEE was empty, pancakes machine was empty, scrambled eggs tray was empty. Sat in the breakfast area for 20 minutes and nothing was replenished. BREAKFAST did not end until 9:30. Not what I'm used to from IHG, but I'll be back. Thank God for McDonald's across the street.

Older hotel, but extremely clean! The staff is friendly and my overall stay has left me impressed. I would highly recommend his hotel to anyone visiting the DeForest area!
