One of two fairly new hotels in Spencer. The rooms were clean and well apportioned. The breakfast included waffles and egg sandwiches to be made with precooked items, basically what you would find in any other similar facility. Cookies and fruit are available in the lobby upon arrival.

Dirty room. Smelled like wet dog at a swamp. Had fecal matter splattered in the toilet bowl all three nights. The hot tub did not work all three nights. On previous trips the hot tub was so hot you couldn't even sit in it, felt good after long day bird hunting. We stayed at this hotel on 3 separate occasions... More

We found our room to be clean and spacious! We had a king bed, couch, coffee table, hot tub, free internet, TV, large bathroom with shower and tub and free hot breakfast the next morning. The staff at check-in was friendly and knowledgeable. We were exceptionally pleased with our stay.

In town visiting family. Stayed one night. Including our cat as we are doing a crosscountry move. Staff went super out of way to make us feel welcome and accomodate our needs. Especially GM Jeff for his desk demeanor and style. Staff housekeeping very complete and conscientious. Well done.
