In terrible disrepair (hole in the ceiling, dry rot around door jam, texture falling off ceiling, clogged sink drain). I asked twice to have the sink unclogged - no one came. I finally did it myself. Ick.

The outside of the hotel was honestly a bit scary. It didn’t give me a feeling of safety at all. People were constantly leaving their doors open and hanging out outside, so I think there are a lot of long term lodgers. When checking in, it took QUITE a while to get helped, even with ringing the bell and calling back. However, the room itself was fine. The bed was hard as a rock, but the room was clean, cool, and taken care of. No smells, bugs, or sketchiness. If you’re just looking for a place to sleep, it’s okay.

Nothing has been updated, the smell of the room makes one wonder what kind of chemicals were used. When the air conditioner was running, it smelled sour so I kept it off. I didn't really want to touch anything....I didn't have to take a shower. Couldn't really tell if it was clean or not. The sheets on both beds were clean....may have been made up for a while, but clean. I guess that's what you get when you pay a price that isn't real high.

Lots of long term residents. People hanging out in parking lot. Went in and canceled our reservation and went elsewhere

Everything was clean and it seemed perfectly safe. The hotel is old but has fresh paint and carpet. The only bad thing, this was easily the most firm mattress I've ever laid on. It was downright hard. Not comfortable.

No hotel staff to be found. People constantly loitering in parking lot and very disturbing

When I first went in room smelled a little musty or smoked in I went in and told clerk she gave me some air refresher that was in a spray bottle and let me keep it the whole time. It worked very well and we didn't have to change rooms which we were offered. The clerks were very helpful and for a inexpensive motel it was nice. I would have like a better variety of breakfast but made do.

This hotel was nicely located and for the price it was excellent. Our boy really enjoyed the stay. The rooms were really spacey. Will stay there again

The worst part of the stay was the air conditioner only blew air so that the room was very damp and musty. The night shift clerk was not helpful and would barely give the time of day. The parking lots were full of garbage including soiled diapers. Taking a walk outside is impossible.

Decent stay. Facilities were fine. Desk and room service were good. Location was average but close to downtown.

There were bed bugs!

All the previous reviews gave me very low expectations. Overall, I was pleased that the previous reviews were not all accurate. The hotel did have a musty smell, but it was clean and quiet. We enjoyed the pool. The shower only ran hot which would not be good for sensitive children. There was a fridge, microwave, iron, and blow dryer in the room. No coffee pot. The staff was very helpful and friendly. This hotel was good for the price.

we arrived on sat at 3:30 pm and we had booked 2 rooms and neither room was clean, dirty bed, dirty towels, so they moved us to a new room where the toilet did not flush. when i reported this to the hotel maintanance, they informed me that the toilet had been broke for about 2 weeks. the rooms were nasty. I was very disappointed in the hotel and all i recieved for all the problems was 1/2 price our next stay. well guess what, i will not stay there again.

Our experience was awful.The room was smoking room that had been sprayed to smell like a non smoking room. The sheet had cigarette burns in them. The floor looked like it had not been cleaned in weeks. The ceiling had events that water damage and happen and then covered up with plastered. The bathroom had mold around the tub and shower curtain with cogarette burns on the sink. Also, the curtain on window were dirty. The bathroom door would close. Some of lights did not work. The sheet on the bed had cigarette burns and hole in them. The door to the room looks like it broken into before.So, I am totally surprise that you put your name in association with this Hotel. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Evansville area or for a matter of fact any chain they have in the US. Also before our stay my credit card was charged one month before our stay.Also, I request a non-smoking ground level room, due to the fact my husband is handicap and cannot climb stairs. Our room was on the second level and my husband trip a couple of times climbing the stairs to our room.If someone would like to talk with me in person, I can be reached at [@]

I was in town for a business event. This hotel was a good location for it, not too far, but not too close. When I got there, check-in went smoothly. However, when I walked into my room, the sheets hadn't been changed, the bathroom hadn't been cleaned, and the dirty towels were still hanging in the shower. I was instantly given a new room, which I was thankful for. The next day I went to the pool, which was enjoyable. I go back to the room, and there is no water. I call the front desk, and they say that all they can offer are a few bottles of water so I can shower. The water wasn't available until at least 6:30 that night, and needless to say, I was late for the event. There was no compensation offered or even an apology for the inconvenience. Finally, on the morning of my checkout, I looked up at the ceiling above the television and saw I had a little visitor. Last I checked, roaches were not a good thing to have in a hotel. An absolute hole.

Hotel visit was great,excellent customer service, loved the hot breakfast, clean rooms and comfy beds. Overall stay was very good, will stay again in the future.

high speed internet was super slow....i got fast service on my at home dial up. had ants in my room breakfast was really bad....hard doughnuts no butter or syrup for waffles i will not stay here again nor will i recommend this hotel to anyone. some staff was friendly.

I attended the Kenny Kent Jazz Wine & Arts Festival while i was in Evansville. I had a great time and look foward to visiting again.

worst ever

I was searching for a hotel close to Holiday World, I think the search engine could have found a town much closer than Evansville - it was a long drive. The room itself - even though we requested a smoking room - smelt awful. We actually went to the store and bought Lysol to spray in the room but it did not help. Also when we first arrived the toilet was clogged. We called the front desk and they sent someone up who spent a couple of minutes with a plunger and left. We were all tired and went straight to bed. The next morning the toilet was the same - it would not flush properly. We called the front desk again and were told that maintenance would not be in for 20 minutes and that she could not leave the front desk to bring us a plunger. We went down to to pick it up but it did not help much. We had to plunge the toilet every time it was flushed. As far a location - we did not feel that we were in a very good part of town either. Overall - we had a place to sleep that was relatively cheap.
