The staff at this hotel were extremely nice and accommodating. The hotel has many nice features including a small shop for snacks, playing cards, and forgotten toiletries. There is also a small indoor pool and exercise room. The rooms are nice sized and appeared very clean. They also had free hot breakfast in the morning, that was pretty tasty for hotel breakfast. The only complaint I had was the noise level by the pool. It has a lower ceiling, and with 22 kids in there screaming-man was it loud! There were a lot of younger families here, and they also didn't clean up their messes from themselves or children near the pool area. After leaving the pool area Saturday at 11 p.m. there were towels and trash strewn everywhere. And there are even baskets to place towels in. I saw parents putting their kids in the pool in only diapers. The hotel even sells swim diapers. This is not the fault of the hotel, but there did seem to be a lot of questionable people staying here on Saturday night. Kids also wandered into the exercise room wet from swimming and barefoot playing on exercise equipment. Again this is not the hotel's fault, but parents really needed to watch their kids more. Overall it was a nice experience, and we would likely stay here again, if only due to it being the best hotel out of the three to choose from in Portland, Indiana.
