Needed a room for a Saturday night for Rose Hulman parent's weekend & waited too long. Called Friday and a young man who answered said they only had a "business room" with a king bed left. I said I'd take it as we were headed to Rose. He dropped the rate at that to about $70. We hear most Terre Haute hotels discount rooms for Rose Hulman parents. Check in was fast. When we checked in they had flipped us to a room with two doubles which all hotels in this town seem to think customers prefer. We took it not caring.
Looking at the reviews I'd say you get what you pay for. Don't expect great views, a luxurious parking lot or hotel décor, or gourmet breakfast (which came free with the stay). Beds were two doubles not queens which were OK by us. Each was clean and comfortable and came with 3 pillows. The headboards did have the strange greasy handprints and smears other reviews spoke of as did the sides of the dresser but I had my Clorox wipes handy. The TV was older but was adequate as we weren't there to watch TV. Our room had a small table and 2 chairs but there was a reading lamp that seemed to be missing a reading chair underneath it. Room temp. was adjustable & adequate.
The bathroom was older and in need of remodeling and the grout in the shower and floor had seen better days and needed cleaning and refreshing but the floor in there was swept and tidy. There was a hairdryer in there. Plumbing was fine. The room had a iron and ironing board. Walls are thin and we heard folks coming into the hallway a wee bit in the morning but not too bad. Lights are LED and kind of harsh. There is a pool which was closed. Also the breakfast was OK but I'd had the flu and didn't trust any food so only took chances on the juice, yogurt, and banana. There were apples and pears too. I remember hard boiled eggs and English muffins and make your own waffles but truly I didn't look at the rest. Hallways and common areas seemed taken care of and fairly clean and without smoking or other smells. Room smelled fine.
