We came here with friends to visit the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Loved this place! It may sound silly, but when I stay in a hotel that is rundown, I feel anxious and uncomfortable. This place, you walk into a big, bright modern lobby. Check in was a breeze and our room seemed pretty newly renovated. Lots of plugs and USB ports. Extremely clean. Comfy beds, clean linens, nice window treatments. We stayed in Room 422 and it was super quiet. And we are on a long trip and they had a washer/dryer which was helpful. And it’s about in the middle between the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum.

I woke up refreshed ready to kill the day after getting such a good night's sleep. The beds are amazing here! The rooms are clean. No traffic noice. But . . . I went downstairs to have breakfast only to find out there wasn't one. Yep. No food for you unless you pay. I entered the room where the food was and the lady said, "8 dollars a person." I asked to look at the food and it did look good, but it didn't look that good. I mean how good can hotel gravy be? The Bob Evans is just across the way. Needless to say, I passed and finally found the free coffee that they allow the passengers in steerage to have. Anyway, this is a lovely hotel and we'll probably stay here again because of the beds, but it's ridiculous to charge for breakfast. Just saying. Be the better hotel. Be the superior hotel chain. Heck, be kind. Nothing more to add. Well, one more thing. Cleaning staff needs to shut up in the halls outside guest rooms.

Reasonable price but this hotel is focused more on profit than customer service. Maintenance appears to be reactive and not proactive. Two different lights repeatedly flashing on our floor, not like the maintenance guy didn't see them as he came to our room as our refrigerator and TV would not work. I purposely didn't say anything out of curiosity but lights flashed the full4 days we were there. Wish maids had a check list to check room items as they were easy fixes as someone unplugged refrigerator and someone had moved HDMI cable into another port on TV. We paid $5 extra a day for breakfast which wasn't too bad although we got there 2 mornings an hour after they opened and only 2 yogurts left. Decided to ask on 3rd morning when we showed up over an hour before breakfast closed as there were no yogurts. Said they didn't have any more but I'm sure they are not getting food deliveries every day, probably more about profits so can only put out xx yogurts a day. On the plus side, I found the front desk staff to be very friendly, several saying hello as we walked in different days to elevators.

Clean rooms, pleasant staff, very noisy A/C, that will wake you up, no exhaust fan in bathroom, HORRIBLE coffee in rooms, HORRIBLE coffee downstairs, and HORRIBLE “breakfast”......powdered eggs?........Since we needed to stay 5 nights, we moved to another hotel after one night. This hotel is probably ok if you just need a clean room for 1 night, you sleep soundly, regardless of noise, and don’t mind waiting until you leave in the morning for a tolerable cup of coffee.

Easy access, but far enough from to road so there is no road noise. The hotel is very well maintained and clean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was good sized and well laid out. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well.

I stayed here with my husband and two toddlers. The room was dirty. Food was left in the fridge. The tub didn’t drain. There was a dirty pair of socks left by the bed. They have signs in the hotel that they are sanitizing more but the room was gross. The sign also says if you’re unhappy they’ll make it right. The employee at the front desk stated she couldn’t do anything when I informed her of these issues. I attached a picture of the socks.

First, I made reservations for 2 rooms, 3 weeks in advance when checked in, clerk says sorry only one is ready. Asked when both will be ready, clerk says we can text you, we have had issues. After about 30 minutes they gave a room that was on floor below. Then you have to ask for room service due to COVID they said, they don't automatically do anymore. Lounge was okay, but had a new bartender and she was swamped with no help, had to wait to pay for about 10 minutes. Rooms are just okay, not my idea for a Holiday Inn. Highway noise loud on backside. Customer Service is poor, just was not up to par for this chain, I will think twice about booking Holiday Inn brand again.

Reserved king size bed but received 2 dbls. When I questioned why, her response was that since reservation was thru hotels.com they can't guarantee what room they have. (I reserved this 2 weeks in advance). We checked in maybe 30-45 minutes which cause raised eyebrows. Room was clean. Onsite guest laundy dirty and needs replacement. They are renovating hotel. Asked for ice machine, front desk referred us to bartender who was slightly surprised by request for ice but filled our bucket. The next day I asked another front desk employee who directed us to 4th floor for ice machine. Due to COVID there is no daily housekeeping. We ran out of toilet paper. I asked at front desk - they didn't have any so I said I'll stop by later after dinner. Husband went down 2 hours later and same employee vaguely remembers conversation and did not get any for us. Husband asked for a roll and was told that she could not leave desk and had reports to do. He had to restate we have NONE and does he have to go out and buy a roll. She then called someone to bring us a roll. Lack of knowledge/willingness to help at front desk will result in me never staying here again.

I own a cleaning business so I'm probably the worst hotel customer ever. Im a nightmare for these chain hotels. I spend the money to stay at 4 and 5 star hotel to not have any cleanliness issues but I always find dirty air vents, hair on the bathroom floors or sweaty smelling pillow cases. Never the less if I pay for a 2 or 3 star I can't complain so I opt for the nicer ones that I can demand better quality accommodations. I got stuck, I was tired and driving through a small town in KY outside of Cincinnati and I couldn't find anything above a 3 star close by unless I back tracked so I stayed here at a 3 star figuring what the hell its just for one night. I couldn't believe how clean it was. The pillowcases and sheets (which is my pet peeve by the way) smelled so fresh and clean. The room looked as if I came in and cleaned it with my team and we are a 5 star cleaning service. I can't believe this particular hotel really surprised me. I might opt for Holiday Inns from now on. The cleaning crew here all deserve raises. Especially with CoVid looming all around us I felt really safe. I brought in a canister of Clorox wipes and never used them kudos to this Holiday inns cleaning team. I intend to stop in the morning to talk to someone.
