Five years ago when I stayed here, I would have given it a five star review. Now, not so much. The bar/lounge, which is still advertised on the website, is closed, and, judging by other reviews I've read today, has been for quite some time. One desk clerk quoted the party line and said the beer cooler was broken. Another...

We booked this hotel as a web special. 2 tickets to the House on the Rocks attraction with our stay. Since the reason we were traveling here was the house on the rocks we booked it. Very friendly staff, and since it was early season, and a weeknight, few guests other than us. Which means our room was quiet and...

Traveled with my wife and two young children taking advantage of the spring break specials. This place gets the most important things right - the rooms are large, clean, very comfortable, and quiet. What sets this place apart is the pool. It is perfect for young kids! The kid pool is only a foot and a half deep with a...

Our room was outdated but it was clean and comfortable. The room had a small patio, that was nice to open the door and let some fresh air in the room. The waterpark-like pool was great for younger children. Breakfast of toast, bagels, donuts, mini muffins, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, juice, coffee - simple but okay. We stayed here because of...

Finding a nice hotel is one thing but being surprised by having a wonderful water park is quite another! Of course if you were a little kid it would be spectactular but even for adults we totally enjoyed the whirlpool, indoor pool AND outdoor pool. The rooms were clean and although disappointed we were not there on a weekend to...

Staying here while we are going to visit House on a Rock. Its adequate. It has everything you need. Preferably would be better if you were doing a family thing. Nice pool and water park for kids. Weekends they offer more as far as bar, breafeast extra. Of course this is later in the year.

The Inn was very clean and kid friendly with an indoor and outdoor pool plus it had food offered although it was closed the night we were there. It has a lounge for having a few cocktails by the fire or out on the deck depending on the time if year. While the accommodations are dated and the walls paper...

This hotel has the guts of being a great destination...the fancy pool, a nice building, nice sized rooms, a possible oasis in the middle of nowhere. But it falls short on many fronts, including: -The rooms are dated...19" tube TVs? Really? In 2016? -Cleanliness, while not bad, was not perfect, either. Bugs on the windows. -Funky stale air smell in...

Tickets for the House on the Rock are available with your reservation. The Inn has a wonderful, helpful staff. The rooms and linens are clean but the towels ar not soft and fluffy! The rooms that we occupied had old bulky TV's. the TV's did work well and they did have many cable channels. The continental breakfast was very nice,...

Made a reservation on a couple hours before arrival. Upon entering the first impression was very good, Nice artwork and statues, water features displayed. It was clean, organized, friendly staff. The carpet in some of the areas such as the bar was lumpy, and warn, needs replaced. The pool room was very nice. The pool was perfect temp and the...
