Staff very good, breakfast good, room need some updates.

Great new updated room and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast

We enjoyed our time and it was a nice room and will come again

Great location and value for money. Only complaint- close to road and heavy traffic.

Andrew checked us in to our room and he was very nice and pleasant. Very easy checking in and out. The rooms are pretty big and clean. Beds were very comfortable. Perfect location.

Everything went well with this hotel, the check in was quick, the room was clean, plenty of towels, and the staff was friendly.

Our room, although a " non-smoking room," smelled of smoke covered up with air-freshener and had a stale odor. Our clothes picked up the same odor and had to be laundered when we got home, even if we hadn't worn them. There was no A/C, which was not necessary for temperature, but would have helped for air quality. The tile floor was sticky, although the bathroom floor was better. There was inadequate seating space for breakfast. Breakfast food was okay. The price was more than we booked for, $11 more for Friday, and $31 more for Saturday. The staff were very nice.

The staff was more than helpful. I arrived with my wife on a cast on her right foot. They let us checked in a little earlier than the allowed time to do so.

Ugh. There were so many things that went wrong with this motel. First, the reservation was for "FairBridge Inn Express". However, the sign on the street said "Midway Inn". We passed the place several times before we realized it was our hotel. To be fair, there was a standard page from a printer taped to the lobby door that said "FairBridge Inn Express" but then again, the front door does not face the street. Next, the proprietor couldn't find my reservation. He kept saying that Expedia wasn't feeding data into his computer accurately. I tried correcting him that it was Orbitz but he kept saying Expedia the whole time. Now, he did have a printout of my reservation and I showed him my copy of the same, but he still asked me to come back a couple hours later so he could get it fixed in the computer. After finally getting checked in, I asked about the continental breakfast that was listed on the reservation. He said that it was coffee and muffins. Nothing else. Technically the description is accurate but I was hoping for something that my two kids could eat or drink. Parking was limited to about 10 spots in front. I was told there was more parking in the back but I can't block the way for the buses that park there also. The front wasn't plowed for snow. The back had big snow piles in the parking spots. The room was standard. Nothing special. Everything worked fine. Heater was very effective. Oh, the late check out that was promised was just one hour later. Again accurate but ...

Passing through town...clean and good price for a quick stay over. They need darker curtain the lights shine in at night making it hard to get good rest.

Friendly staff. Overall okay for what we paid for. Only thing we disliked was the fact that they were remodeling some of the rooms over our weekend stay which made it very difficult to sleep in with all the noise in the mornings.

I stayed here in mid April. the hotel was in a good location about 15 min walk from the casinos and 20 minutes from the lake. the room was in major need of upgrades. the carpet was terrible the wall were dystroyed the bathroom was nasty. The worst part is that it smelled like an ashtray. unless you are planning on just sleeping here and i mean like a quick nap pay a little more and find a better place.

I greatly appreciate your comments about aspects of the room that need updating. It is a pleasure to announce that we will be implementing many of these upgrades to the property within the next couple of months. Our rooms will be getting new mattresses, bed skirts, window treatments, carpeting, in-room accessories, and much more! In taking great care of our charming hotel, our main priority is to be able to offer a very well-maintained and comfortable atmosphere. I hope that I can convince you to change your mind about another visit to our property.
