We didn't realize it was nearly 20 miles out of our way, as Orbitz had it listed as Mt. Vernon. But, that being said, it was a nice hotel, clean and neat. The room was smaller than it looked in the picture, but very quiet. The only down side was someone who, I believe, worked there. He stood/sat outside the motel a lot and tried to engage in conversation while he and his wife smoked. It was raining, and I could have done without the smoke smell while unloading the car. (I'm allergic to cigarette smoke).

Very quite and away from the freeway

I really enjoyed the continental breakfast! First place I've stayed that has had one in the last couple years.

We stay here after boating at Rend Lake. It is always clean and comfortable. This staff is polite and can easily help you out with whatever you may need.

Room and lobby was very clean. But AC unit in room didn’t work correctly and when turned on blew a very heavy musty smell that filled the room.

I had called ahead of time to tell them I would be late to the check in since I was traveling and they were fine with it. Once arriving, they didn’t have my booking (I booked through a travel site) and she was very patient and helpful while we tried to figured it out. I loved it here. I would stay again. She gave us a room close to the doors as well since we were traveling with a dog.

Great location minutes from Rend Lake. Nice lot for boat parking. Very clean and quiet hotel with comfy beds and soft towels. Breakfast was ok, but nothing to write home about. Staff was very courteous and helpful.

Bon rapport qualite prix, Petit dejeuner un peut leger en choix.

Clean room and friendly staff. Close to family and local events

Nice hotel. I like it cold when I sleep. The air conditioner was a little testy but, I followed their instructions and the room did finally cool off. I sleep well. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Wake up call was an actual person and not automated.

Clean, friendly and very nice place! Everyone was helpful and accommodating!

First Stay here. Attended the funeral of a family member. Hotel was very clean, rooms were nice & beds were very comfortable, continental breakfast & coffee was perfect!

Nice hotel, everything new. Easy to get to lake. Clean and not too expensive. Will come back.

All the staff were very considerate...I don't know for sure but I think it's a brand new Hotel

wish it had laundry facilities for guests, coffee pot in the room and an exercise room

The staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean. We stay here every time we are in the area and it's 10 times better than the other hotels In the area.

Thanks for the feedback Lynette! I am so sorry about that happening to you! We have no men that work at our hotel, so it was probably a guest who was staying here with his wife, who was smoking. We will talk about changing our designated smoking areas away from the main entrance so this does not happen again. Thank you for bringing it to our attention!
