Drove up and thought Priceline had played a cruel joke on me. The exterior is dated from the mid-70's and it looked uninhabited. Despite its dismal exterior, it was quite a find. Sure, the bathtub was small and old, but the room was clean and spacious. The living area was large, with a nice-sized mini frig and microwave. Bed was...

First of all I was happy when I checked in the girl at desk was very nice. I was there staying for the night. My son and his friends go to school there so they came to swim for a while. NO TOWELS! When we got to the pool. ( tons of dirty ones laying around)I went to desk for...

I had a couple requests for the staff before we arrived. I jokingly asked for a pic of Luke Bryan on the Bed for my wife. They accommodated us and were extremely friendly. The room was nice, clean and a good value. We would definitely return if in the area.

We had a bug in one bed and the other looked like someone had slept in it. Stayed in January and the heat didn't work very well. Breakfast was not good at all. Looks to as they had done some work lately but still below average.

We booked this hotel last minute at for the price, we were pleasantly surprised. We called to let front desk clerk know we would be checking in real late (around 2:30 AM). When we arrived we were greeted by name (nice first impression). The room was clean and semi-updated. The bed was comfortable and decor resembled that of a more...

This hotel seems to be half way through a badly needed upgrade. The television, cupboards, coffee maker, counter tops all seemed to have gone through a recent update and are on par with some of the nicer hotels. The staff was very polite and welcoming. The price was rather reasonable and I was expecting much worse for the money. On...

I reserved my room through Priceline @ the bargain price of $47 per night plus taxes. The gentleman whom checked me in could have been more welcoming. The room was just fine. We enjoyed the pool & hot tub. I have stayed in worse places for more $$. Overall this hotel was a great value and I would return.

We stayed at the Waterford on an "off-football game " (Notre Dame) November weekend so the hotel was not full. Our first floor room's upgrades made it resemble any upscale 4 star property. The flat screen tv, comfy mattress, in-room coffeemaker, microwave oven and mini-refrigerator were perfect. Walls were a bit thin and you could barely hear the tv in...

I am a heavy business traveler but stayed here with my family while visiting relatives in the area. We brought the dog with us so being able to have it with us in the room was an important consideration. With the relatively inexpensive price and the pet friendly rules I expected the rooms to smell like animals. I was pleasantly...

I travel a lot for work and have seen all types of hotels. Some places that are off the beaten path can go one of two ways, fantastic or I could have done better. I feel like I could have done better considering the cost of the room. The property definitely needs some much needed upgrades. The parking was probably...
