Over night trip to go to state fair

Pleasant stay for most part. Could hear people walking above while laying in bed. Morning buffet was good, however, tables needed to be cleared & cleaned better & quicker. No one was bussing the tables.

In Town for Indycar Race

Had good time. I did however wish the gym had more equipment. The good was good in the morning, but it seemed to run out quickly. The doors at one point were locked in the middle of the night, but the staff let us in ASAP. Overall we had a positive experience.

Clean and convenient

This hotel is conveniently located. I found the room clean and well appointed. The free breakfast offered hot food as well as the continental offerings. My room was very silent. All in all, it was a good night's stay.

Pretty good no complaints

Just in and out... didn't stick around to long. I came in at 9pm and I was out by 7:30am. Hotel is new so no other issues with cleanliness.

Great Stay

The room was nice, the staff helpful at check-in, beds comfy. My teens loved staying there. Mostly new. Breakfast was very nice for a continental style freebie type meal. The coffee was very good and the juice actually tasted like juice. I would stay at this hotel again in a heartbeat.
