Positive Reviews

Enjoyable free breakfast and good customer care

Visitors frequently sang the praises of the welcoming, friendly and professional personnel who looked after them well. The free continental breakfast was reportedly a simple affair, but many diners felt it was filling and convenient. Guests also appreciated the free coffee service.

Handy roadside location just south of downtown

The location of this budget hotel proved popular with travellers as it put them a short drive away from downtown. The direct access to Interstate 65 made it simple for motorists to reach universities, sports venues, industrial areas, shopping centres, theme parks, golf courses and the airport. The proximity of petrol stations, bus stops, shopping options and restaurants also appealed to reviewers as did the ample free parking.

Low-cost rooms with modern features

According to many guests, the straightforward rooms were clean and more than sufficiently comfortable and spacious for a stopover. There was praise for modern features like the large flat-panel cable TVs and coffee-makers. Those prioritizing affordability liked the wallet-friendly room prices. Plenty of reviewers felt they got decent value for money.

Negative Reviews

Occasional disappointment with free Wi-Fi

For some reviewers, the free Wi-Fi network's performance left something to be desired. There were occasional claims of a weak signal and slow speeds.

Maintenance and cleanliness issues reported

Cleanliness and maintenance problems were a setback for travellers in several rooms. These included air-conditioning units in a state of disrepair, cigarette burns, uneven bathroom flooring and insufficiently cleaned linens. A few critics also described encounters with cockroaches.

Budget hotel format attracted some criticism

Although the no frills format meant guests could take advantage of affordable rates, there was occasional criticism of certain aspects of the hotel such as the limited choice of food at breakfast or lingering smoky odours and musty smells in some rooms.
