Reviewed 2 July 2013

We were visiting Spencer to see my brother who lives in the area. We found available a room that met our stay requirements, just off Route 46. The room was adequate, the price very good. Though some of the furniture had some nicks, it was a place to put our heads -- after all, our only purpose is to have a place to put stuff, clean up, and a place to sleep. Coffee was available in the morning. The hosts were gracious and friendly. Would go there again if in the area.

Room Tip: Spencer is approximately 50 minutes from I-70 (Terre Haute, IN) on Route 46. Bloomington, IN is app...

To start with the place is pretty cheap but for twenty more dollars we could have stayed in a cleaner environment. the room smelled of paint and that soon led to a headache. The sheets where filthy! I saw every bodily function possible on my bed. the carpet had not been swept. the walls where so paper thin I could hear the other peoples tv all night! I'm very unsatisfied

We enjoy visiting southern Indiana, especially the Bloomington area, several times a year, particularly in the autumn to enjoy colorful fall folliage. This year we tried to find a hotel room
in Bloomington and were dismayed to discover that most acceptable hotel rooms were priced almost twice as high as we had paid in the past, and that some did not even have rooms available. Since we intended to hike and explore McCormick's Creek State Park, we took a chance on a small, budget motel, called Patriot Inn in Spencer, not far from the park entrance. We were pleasantly surprised: It was, of course, not as well-appointed as we are used to, but it served our needs adequately: There was no clock radio or coffee maker in the room, but it did have microwave and a mini-fridge and also free internet access. The room's decor was nice enough and best of all, the room and bathroom were clean. The linens were not as luxurious as in a more expensive hotel, but were clean and good enough. However, the mattresses were too firm for my taste. Free coffee was available in the lobby. The clerk required us to pre-pay for our room the night before, so checking out was simple: just drop the room key in the box on the front desk, no waiting for a receipt, since I asked for it the the previous evening.
We will very likely stay at this motel again.

Room Tip: The two story motel has no elevator.

We found our room & bathroom to be neat & clean. This is an older motel with furniture that's been nicked a little here & there. The beds are very firm & the bathroom extremely small. The counter with sink is separate from the bath/tub shower & toilet are. There is a refrigerator in the room. Coffee is in the lobby. There are two floors with no elevator. This motel is right up against State Route 46 however we never heard traffic during the night. If you want a clean room to lay your head down for the night, then I'd recommend staying here.

My husband and I stayed at the Patriot Inn in Spencer while visiting relatives in the area. While this in not one of your fancy motels, it was a comfortable, quiet place to get a good nights sleep. The king sized mattress we had was a bit harder than our pillow top at home, but it was good back support with plenty of room to stretch out. The staff was friendly and gave us the room we had used upon an earlier stay, at our request. One thing we would warn about, though, is that the tub is quite slippery so we had to be very careful while using it and getting out. It does have free high speed internet, but we did not get that to work very well.
