Easy access off highways 18 or 60. We travel a lot for business and usually seek out HIE. This location did not disappoint. Asked for a first floor room and received it. Room and bathroom were clean, inviting, and comfortable. Breakfast is the standard HIE and we love the coffee! Definitely recommend!

Dear Pat H. Thank you for taking the time to write us a review for our hotel. We all work hard, from top to bottom, to make each stay as good as it can be. We do have a very good location with easy access from two main highways. That may be part of the reason we stay so busy...

This has been one of the best hotels I've stayed at. I used to travel a lot for work and stayed at this one almost every week. The rooms are always spotless and the breakfast always good. The hotel receptionists even recognized me as a frequent customer.

The hotel staff was wonderful, the room was clean & comfortable. Loved the promotion that corporate is doing with the Snoozapalooza, even though we aren't late sleepers, I can see where this would be very beneficial to a lot of people. The thank you note we found under the door was a nice little added touch to already great service.

Hotel Staff is amazingly friendly and helpful, allowed a early check in and late check out since we were traveling with small children. Pool can be a little bit crowded at times with people from town coming to swim but that was a very small inconvenience.

Very nice hotel, clean, good amenities, good breakfast, etc. No complaints at all except the price! This hotel is grossly overpriced for such a small town. That's why it's overpriced.
