so, so

I booked this hotel for my family coming in from Holland. I figured it wouldn't be four star quailly, however I was not expecting it to be 1 star quality. The staff were rude and not friendly at all. The rooms looked nothing like the pictures. And the continental breakfast was horrible. Next time I will pay the extra money.

Great place to stay!

The hotel is an older one, but still very nice. Doors are automatic, the lobby is spacious and guest friendly. The staff was excellent, and we had no problems checking in or out. There is a nice open staircase, or an elevator for those who don't want to climb. The refrigerator was quite nice, and the light switches glow a bit so you can find them in the dark (which could also be annoying if you are sensitive to light while trying to sleep). We didn't partake of the complimentary breakfast or any of the other amenities so I don't know how those were. This was about 18 miles north of Indianapolis. A little bit of a drive, but worth it for us.

Get what you pay for

We only stayed one night. Bed spread was dirty & likely hadn't been cleaned for awhile. There was a piece of plastic with staples in it that my husband stepped on... Which he wasn't pleased about. There were only 3 pillows on a king sized bed. TV is old!

Room smelled

I was booked for three nights but left after the first. They charged me for two nights - I told them in the morning but hey charged me anyway. No one saw at the front desk for me to check out. I was either bitten during the night or broke out in a rash due to the sheets. Hotel room was in need of refurbishment, bathroom shower rail was broken. I asked for a wake up call and did not receive one. The "breakfast" consisted of three breakfast rolls and surgary cereals.

Disappointing Stay

Staff was very pleasant, however the room was not very nice or clean. There were little bits of trash on the floor and it looked like it needed a good vacuuming. Paint was peeling in the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and clean but overall it was not a good experience.

Not a Best Western

Confusing at first because the name of motel was changed. I think it's called Magnison now.The Free Breakfast was rough. Carpets and walls really needed some cleaning. Conveniently located not far from the interstate 69. We did enjoy having the microwave and small fridge in the room.
