“Clean, quiet location for typical HIE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

We stayed two nights at this location as part of a Holiday World vacation. It is a bit of a drive from Santa Claus, but it's a beautiful, easy drive and worth the extra 20 minutes or so.

Pros:
Far enough off main road that no street noise bothered us at night.
Clean, comfortable rooms
Courteous staff--one maintenance man was especially helpful when I asked about local parks.

Cons:
Parking fills up quickly.
Breakfast gets crowded and they run out of tables.
First thing that welcomes you on to property is a trash dumpster.
Front doors are not automatic--makes it hard when you are trying to maneuver a trolley full of luggage.
No vent in bathroom, so it fogged up quickly and stayed that way.

We stayed here Memorial Day weekend for the first time. We were visiting Holiday World and could not get a reservation with the hotel we usually stay in. We were very pleasantly surprised by this property and how clean and comfortable it was. The staff was very friendly and the kids loved the indoor pool. We will definitely stay again when we visit Holiday World!

We drove from Fort Wayne to Tell City and had a reservation at another hotel. When we got there the hotel did not have our reservation. We drove to Holiday Inn, which was full. They were nice enough to telephone a competitor hotel, who had 2 rooms. Holiday Inn asked them to hold the rooms for us and we got the last 2 rooms available in Tell City. Thanks for the excellent customer service.

Stayed at HIE Tell City last weekend before a trip to Holiday World. Hotel was clean and well maintained. As other posters have mentioned the breakfash does get cleaned out. Have to say I saw a lot of people taking plates and items back to their rooms to put in coolers. Overall very enjoyable stay and good nights rest. Would stay again. Just not go to Holiday World on a weekend. Rooms were clean and fresh. Front desk was courteous.

Hotel doesn't follow franchise guidelines, so don't expect a decent hot breakfast, or last minute Priority Club reservations. I've stayed here several times due to hotel location, and have painfully learned my lesson to not come back. Most rooms stink of mildew, very strongly. Breakfast items are not prepared until everything already out is gone, making everyone wait. Also, don't plan on eating here if you want an early start either, posted start is 6am, but they start setting up around 7:15. Management refuses to return calls. "New" mattresses left me with a sore back.

Made reservations and stayed there July 27 and 28. Have always stayed at HIE and really liked the. This one was under renovation. Lots of dust and smell was bad. Complained at front desk on first night. Nothing was done. Half of our party ended up with doctor visits because of sinus infections.. Front desk was very nice and friendly. Swimming pool black and open to guest.

We stayed at this hotel because it is close to Holiday world. It takes about 20 minutes to get there but it was clean and the staff was very helpful and nice.
It also had a very nice breakfast in the morning eggs, bacon, cereal, rolls, biscuits, yogurt, toast , juice, milk, hot tea and according to my husband Dantes inferno hot coffee!!!
Do not expect to find a variety of sit down restaurants in this area the main choice is fast food and pizza, we did however find a Ponderosa which was clean and the service was very good.
We would stay here again.
