I have stayed in this hotel on two separate occasions. Each time our stay was excellent. The rooms are nicely appointed, although not lavish, the lobby is very nice and the parking is ample. The staff is very helpful. The breakfast is an added plus. Additionally on weeknights they have beer on the house.

We recently stayed at this Motel as it was close to Bloomfield, Indiana where we attended a funeral. The motel was a great choice we made as it was close to the highway, close to our destination and close to restaurants.

Very happy with our stay at this hotel. Our first room we were given the heat/ac unit was not working but the staff quickly got us a new room and upgraded us to a suite. Very nice and clean room. Breakfast was exceptional. Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again when in the area.

I've stayed here a few times over the years and I have never been disappointed.
