The hotel was clean and we had a nonsmoking room. We had to walk down a hall with smoking rooms and the nonsmoking room was at the end of the hall. The hallway smelled aweful from smoke.

We came for a hiking weekend with friends. The hotel would have been alright if it wasn't for the smell of cigarette smoke everywhere and if they would update their mattresses. We had a non-smoking room, but there was an unpleasant smell to it. At times the hallways smelled of smoke as well. The mattresses were not terribly bad, but...

Very easy to find, clean,comfortable, staff is very friendly & helpful as I needed a room on the first floor near the entrance for my elderly father in law who has trouble walking distances. There are restaurants near by along with gas stations. A nice small town to visit & a very scenic drive.

This hotel exceeded our expectations in the rural area of Oglesby. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was peaceful and the atmosphere was quiet in the hotel. They have a nice pool and hot tub area. The hotel was very clean and the bed comfortable. It was also very reasonably priced.

Met a friend and stayed two nights. Hotel had water pipe burst both nights but yet they handled the issue pretty smoothly. Staff was helpful. Pool area was okay. Wish it was a heated pool. Hot tub was nice though. I would stay here again.
