Still expect hot water

While I didn't expect a luxury hotel for the cheaper price paid for the one night stay, I did expect hot water in the shower, a clean bed, a flushing toilet a secure deadbolt lock. This hotel did not meet 3 of the 4 criteria.... I had to take a cold water shower (hot water in sink but not in shower) and while the bed linens were clean the bed and pillows smelled of human body odors. I could not engage the deadbolt lock. I stayed because it was a late arrival and I didn't have another place to go. Deeply disappointed.

High School Class Reunion

Never met a more courteous and helpful hotel staff, from the front desk to housekeeping...friendly and competent. Bent over backwards to make my stay pleasant and problem-free. Room was large, comfortable Price was reasonable for the accomodations. Located less than 5 minutes from the airport. I highly recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Over night stay

The room was clean. The lobby and breakfast area was very nice. The room and bathroom very out dated. There were 4 adults and we only had 3 sets of towels in the bathroom. The faucet leaked and the drain in the shower was very slow. By the time you took your shower, you had water up to your ankles. The breakfast was very nice. Staff was friendly.

Right near state fairgrounds. Great staff made adjustment to fix the one problem we had. Only thing to pat attention to is the entrance is easy to miss in the dark.

An OK Stay

I picked this inn to stay just because it is closest to the Lincoln Memorial coming from Chicago. The inn is what I had expected. The room was clean but on the old side, but the complimentary breakfast was good.
