The room had clean sheets and behind everything was cleaned there was no cobwebs anywhere. Everything was dusted. Also the pool area was very clean. You couldn’t see the body oils of others in hot tub. I was very pleased.

Staff was ok- Common areas were a little dirty- Room was clean, but, housekeeping came by at 9AM, we told them we would be out of their way in a couple minutes but they never came back. So, we had an unmade bed for the next night. Bathroom with shower only was more like an RV than a hotel. Only food option within a mile radius was a truck stop. ….All in all, it's an OK "get off the highway for the night" kind of place.

Pros: I liked that it was a bit out of town so there wasn't a lot of traffic noise.
Cons: Everything.
Location: It is near Richland College and there is a McDonald's around the corner. Other that not much is around.
The pictures were outdated or extremely photoshopped. The pool water was murky so we did not even use the pool. The halls leading to our room smelled like cigarettes, mold and something they used to cover all that up. Our bathroom had hair all over the floor. The breakfast ok.

Most staff members were nice but there was one staff member who called me "crazy" and threatened to call police on me because I resisted her bossy attitude. Wouldn't recommend this motel to anyone and will never stay at another sleep Inn.

Okay hotel but very late check in

We arrived at the hotel at 3:46pm on the day of check-in and approached the front desk. Check-in process started and the clerk informed us that our room was not ready. I asked if the check-in time was 3:00pm as stated on a plaque right on the wall. The clerk said yes but we had a full house last night and they are not done cleaning your room. They informed us that it would be another 30 minutes. Are you serious? So almost 1 1/2 hours later we were able to check 4:28pm we entered our room. Don't worry the bill on the top still said we checked in at 3:46pm....I guess that was to cover there end. Then as we went to bed that night there was a knocking noise which seemed to go on and on and on until finally we fell asleep. We were at the end of the hallway which had all the plumbing or something by it because we woke up constinously all night long. The overall stay turned out to be horrible. Cheap price but nothing offered for all of the hassle we had to experience while checking in and getting our room 1 1/2 late.

NIce place to stay in Decatur

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
We checked in at 4:00, hotel check in time was at 3:00. It took the staff a few minutes to do stuff on the computer before they said to each other something to the effect that our room wasn't ready yet. I said that check in is stated at 3:00, it's now 4:00, and that I had made the reservation online. Their answer to me was that they had a lot of new staff and they are really slow. After a few more minutes, they checked around and found us a room that was exactly what we had booked. When we entered the room, it was kinda cold! I know they probably are trying to save on energy/electricity when there aren't any guests in the room but sheesh! We turned the heat on, left for a few hours, and were pleased to find that the room was just right when we got back. I had booked a king room with a handicapped bathroom (I didn't need that extra space however) and the bathroom was quite spacious and clean. The bathroom had a wooden seat that pulled down, presumably for people with limited mobility. The only "issue" with the shower is the removable shower head was set a little low (and I believe it was at its highest permanently. Perhaps it was that way for people who would be taking a shower sitting down, but there should have been some type of height adjustment to make it go higher. I'm 5'10 and for anyone taller than I am might have to bend a bit to wash their hair. The towels were okay, a bit on the "dry and scratchy" side The bed was quite comfortable and I got a good night of sleep. The pillows were a bit smaller that I expected but felt fine. I didn't go in the actual pool room but took a peek through the window and it appeared nice. The workout room was surprisingly nice, it had a few good pieces of equipment as well as a large blue exercise ball! The morning breakfast was decent as well. The gravy for the biscuits was home made in a crockpot but the biscuits themselves were a bit dry. The orange juice came from a machine and had a bit of an artificial taste to it. The Maxwell House coffee was good as well as the tea that they had there. I didn't sample much else at the breakfast but everything else appeared fresh and nice. They even had a do it yourself waffle maker! Overall, my experience at this hotel was nice! The hotel is in the middle of a corn field (I was traveling in February so there was a whole lot of nothingness around then) and it was pretty cold and windy walking to and from my car. Nothing wrong that the hotel did of course
