Evansville isn't your most populous city nor a major tourist destination so expectations in terms of a hotel (and pricing) should reflect as well. The Courtyard Evansville East does a great job at meeting that for its location.
The hotel is located approximately 5 miles from downtown Evansville - about a 10 minute drive without any major delays. It's located a bit off the freeway next to a few other hotels so it's pretty quiet. Parking is free and relatively plentiful (as long as they're not hosting a pyramid scheme sales pitch - which has happened twice over the last few weeks).
The lobby is comfortable and fairly modern, with a small pantry area, a cafe/bar, and plenty of seating and tables. There's also a fire pit outside. Laundry room and gym round out the key amenities that I saw (as well as a pool). Front desk staff is usually courteous and efficient.
The rooms are basic, but comfortable. Size is decent as well, enough for 2 people but probably not much more than that. Lighting is a bit dark, but that's the nature of the hotel. Bath amenities is basic, and they don't have an option to decline housekeeping for points which is a huge pain. Also, no bottled water in the room makes me sad - but there is a fridge, coffee, and tea.More
