Room was clean and quiet. It was the perfect little getaway place and I really enjoyed the superman museum and if you are in the area you have to eat at Fat Ed's. I definitely want to go back when they have the superman festivals.

The hotel is in the middle of a refurbishment which is now very much due, the old rooms are looking very dated, but the beds are very comfortable and there is a fridge and microwave and a great shower. The receptionist that welcomed me was excellent and all the staff were extremely helpful. Good breakfast and nice selection. I enjoyed...

We were returning home from a vacation and stayed one night. The man at desk was friendly and helpful as was the lady at breakfast. Room and lobby was clean but..... when you walked into the room it had a stale smell to it. It looked "drab". No pictures, carpet was clean but faded. Price was reasonable. For an overnight...

We enjoyed the free hot breakfast, something for everyone. Clean and spacious room, and the restroom was sparkling clean as well. The appliances were all clean as well. Quiet night, seemed that there are many nearby attractions as well

We stay at IHG whenever we travel, typically twice a month. This was the poorest example of IHG we have seen. Our room smelled like cigarette smoke despite being a non-smoking room. The breakfast offered biscuits that were like little rocks, sausage that was tough and eggs that were rubbery. We tried to eat, but eventually just got on the...

This hotel reminds me of Holiday Inn's I stayed at in the 80's, from the furniture in the rooms and the public areas, the carpets, the tiny bathrooms with heat lamps on timers. Having said that the rooms were equipped with Keurig coffee makers! We had a king bedded room and there was a vast empty space which could have...

We were headed to Mammoth Caves National Park and planned on stopping in Paducah, KY. Prices there seemed to either be close to $200 or $49. We were looking for clean, and not to pricey. Four women headed for a camping trip didn't need luxury. Clean, on our route and good staff.

This is an easy stop when we travel southeast or on return trips to Iowa. On our most recent trip we had a large room, comfortable beds and, as usual, a friendly, outgoing staff. There is no in-hotel restaurant but they readily suggested their area favorites and we enjoyed an excellent meal in a unique environment. We stay here two...
