10/10 Exceptional

Indian River Hometown Inn
Our stay was excellent check in was easy and quick, staff was super friendly and professional. Our room was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Breakfast was ready early and contained many delicious choices!

6/10 Good

Just blah
The price of the room definitely reflects on the quality… it’s extremely outdated and not the cleanest. We booked the jacuzzi room, the water was hot but the jets didn’t work so it was pretty much just a giant regular bathtub. Good place to stay if your just going to sleep and leave, price wise.

Great room, but hotel needs attention.
This hotel had staffing issues, but it was still a great room. The lobby is fantastic, but hallways need new paint and more lighting. We were told the hotel is being shut down in a couple days for maintenance and redecorating. This meant the pool was already shut down, and there were few breakfast items available. We look forward to revisiting this hotel after its upgrades!

Need better cleaning crew
Staff was friendly, breakfast was good. The rooms need better cleaning, the tub drain was black and dirty and there was dirt and stuff under the chair like the didnt even move it to vacuum. Also the dresser drawers had hair and dust in them.
