A stay at St. Meinrad is not for everybody. Famlies who demand a TV, waterpark, and large rooms should look elsewhere. But if you're an adult looking for peace, quiet, and serenity, this is the place.
The rooms in the houses near the church, usually used for retreats or conferences, are incredibly clean and quiet. After a day riding coasters at Holiday World, this is what both me and my traveling companion wanted.
These rooms are similar to modern college dorms in layout, with 1 or 2 twin beds, a desk, and a private bathroom. There is no refrigerator, TV, or coffeemaker, but towels, shampoo, drinking cups, and soap are provided. Wi-Fi is available, but wasn't working during the stay - which is bad because Verizon data didn't work. AT&T did work fine, but make sure your Ma Bell phone supports LTE Band 5.
I did have a meal on the premises. It was surprisingly good, and the menu changes nightly.
Part of the reason we stayed here was the fact that Holiday World was ten minutes away. While this isn't a place for families, if you just need to go to bed without distractions after riding coasters, this is a good place to do it. And the price was perfect for such clean rooms.More
