We booked this hotel online because it said it was freshly remodeled and the restaurant was open with a workout room and an indoor pool and spa. When we arrived at the hotel everything seemed fine until they checked us into a room that had a strong odor of cigarettes immediately. We asked for a new room. They put us...

I told the front desk that the room was unacceptable I would not stay in there with my kids. I asked for another room she told me that there was no...

Nice property right off Hwy 65. Hot breakfast with eggs, pancakes and meat plus continental fare. The carpeting in my room was a bit worn but the room was clean. I loved the high gloss granite on the floor in the lobby and the hallways.

Night stands covered in sticky residue, like soda (we hope) 4. Crappy wifi. Took forever to post this. 5. Made coffee in coffee maker, but NO CUPS. Had to...

Great place to stay. Staff very friendly and helpful. Will stay here again and recommend this place for travelers on a budget. Room was clean, quiet with a comfortable bed. Nice flat screen TV. There was also a very nice indoor pool and hot tub.

I'm going to give Heritage 3 stars because the staff really mostly very accommodating. Thea at the front desk did thr best she could to accommodate us. The rooms are in rough shape, stained carpets, black mold on the inside of the shower curtain, dirty in-room coffee maker, poor cooling system. (We did get a fan from them). Not enough...
