I usually travel to the area a couple of times a year, but it was a year in between trips this time. Imagine my surprise when I found the name change. I was apprehensive.

I normally stay in Lebanon, but it was full. I will be staying here from now on. The Customer service is outstanding. Danny does an amazing job. Jane makes breakfast special every morning by greeting you with a "Good Morning". The breakfast is typical HIE display. Nothing special, but effective. Eva checked me in. She was pleasant with a smile....

Since staying there last, the Hotel had changed Brands. Did not know what to expect, but behind the Counter their was Good Old IKE. The room was large and clean. Noise levels almost negligible. Breakfast a little skimpy. Ike signed us up for Carlson Program.

The rooms are clean, and nice. The free breakfast is hosted by a sweet lady. You have access to a gym across the way. The is a Waffle House next door and a gas station. It is the best place to stay in Abingdon at state rate.

Got stuck in a snow storm. The hotel is old, but clean. Had a house keeper walk in without knocking, my wife just had surgery and was changing her bandages while i was at the car. The hotel is nice but the lack of privacy hurts. Im not sure if i would stay again.
