We stayed here for several nights. It's a good location with lots of shops and places to eat nearby, plus easy access to highways. The staff was friendly. The included breakfast is one of the better ones I've seen (though they were a bit slow to notice items that needed to be refilled). A casual dinner was included too which...

This is one of those good finds on the road. The only thing that was better than the room itself was the friendliness of the staff. So even when your manager books a room with just one bed for the three people on the tour. This is the kind of place that is willing to help you out. Thank you...

We had booked a room with two beds and Initially we were given a room with one king bed. The night manager took care of the problem by giving us an additional king-sized room. Good way to keep us happy. The rooms themselves were clean and very large. The fridge, microwave and sink were enough to make me wish I...

Room was clean, comfortable, and had a fridge, microwave, etc. The rest of the hotel was clean, well-maintained, and the pool was great (hot tub was out of order). Breakfast was a decent buffet, with many options to choose from. The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, especially Fred, who went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant and...

This hotel is conveniently located just off the Interstate 72 which runs north of Decatur. I arrived in from Chicago late on a Monday night, ended up arriving at 2am. I called ahead to let them know I’d check in late, and they were easy going and helpful on the phone. When I arrived Fred promptly checked me in, and...

Spent two nights at this hotel. Breakfast food was good, staff that we met were pleasant, room was adequate. The hotel has a feeling of being " tired" and the owners need to begin to invest some money in the rooms and common areas.

My family and I booked a room thru trip advisor at this Hotel. Trip advisor listed this Hotel as pet friendly which was wrong.

This was, by far, my favorite place to stay since I've been on the road. I did not expect a continental dinner. This seems much nicer than a 2 star hotel. Pleasant staff, clean room, large bathroom and a pool and hottub. I will be staying here again, for sure.
