Located just 10 minutes from downtown Fort Wayne, this family friendly hotel is also pet friendly so there is no need to leave any furry family members at home. Families will love the heated, indoor pool after a day of checking out the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo or Science Central. The spacious guestrooms and suites feature king or double beds, a mini-fridge, coffee maker, flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi. The bathroom features a heated floor and a shower/tub combination. Families can start each morning with the free breakfast as well.

There's an old saying that you can put lipstick on a pig and call her Monique, but a pig is still a pig. The guesthouse has done an amazing job of dressing up their rooms in cleverly designed themes. That makes the rooms a delight to behold. But at it's core, this is still a run-down, out-dated hotel. Beds aren't very comfortable, noise through the walls is unacceptable, and the staff is unengaged. When we went for our free breakfast, the kitchen was closed. Apparently, someone didn't show up for their shift. OK, things happen. But the person at the front desk never bothered to say "I'm sorry."
They room was at a great rate/ value especially since there was a conference in town and most all others were twice if not three times the cost.
It is a bit dated but looks like they are working to update. Rooms have an actual key not a swipe card. Rooms are spacious.
Each room has a patio. There is a game area, washer/ dryer, indoor and outdoor pool, beautiful courtyard and restaurant in the hotel.
Room had a fridge but no microwave. The coworker traveling with me did have a microwave though.
Plenty of parking. Easy to get to off 69. Lots of food places close both sit down and fast food. Walmart and Meijer close for shopping as well.
Local favorite cookie shop the Cookie Cottage is just down the street too!
