This was a nice enough place, though on the second night they had to upgrade us to a new room because the heater in the bathroom wouldn't turn off. It's quiet and well located.
Warning #1: there is no elevator for the second floor! If you're
unable to use stairs or haul luggage, be sure you aren't put on the second floor.
Warning #2: Beware of using a third-party service (like Orb*tz or Pr*cel*ne) to book a room. When I got there, I wasn't given the specific type of room I had booked (we required two beds). Luckily, the hotel was able to accommodate me and give me what I needed, but I was told that booking through a service like that didn't guarantee a specific room.
While attending an retreat I stayed at the Best Western Riverside in Danville. Although I was only there briefly...checking in after 11pm and leaving by 830 every morning the staff was alway pleasant and helpful. My room was neat, clean and had
ample room. I didn't take advantage of the continental breakfast but is looked good.
My only issue was that there was no elevator.,
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
The Moon glow tavern. Located on Perrysville Road east of Buchanan. This is a local bar/grill. Nothing fancy, basic paper plates for dinnerware...but awesome grilled chicken, cod fish sandwiches and hamburgers. You can also cook your own steak.
Wasn't sure if this hotel would live up to the good reviews I'd read but it exceeded them. The room was remodeled, clean and super comfortable king bed. Our room looked out into a forested area.
The free breakfast buffet was more edible than any
other free ones that I've had. Actually it tasted very good. I think it was because the eggs were mixed with bits of sausage and maybe cheese. Aside from the eggs and sausage being a little on the greasy side, which changed the really delicious tasting first cup of coffee into a not so good second cup, who cared? It saved us a trip to McDonald's next door.
Perfect for a quick downstate trip to a football game at U of I (even if it was a little far away from Champaign at 32 miles away).
Was offered an 'upgrade' to a businees or juccuzi suite when I arrived. For $10 extra per day. Chose juccuzi suite (for extra space). Upgrade included Bathroom door that did not close (manager promised to fix next day but did
not) and hardware falling off of bathroom wall (offered to fix the day wechecked out). Other than these two things, good, quiet, clean room. No unpleasant oders even in hallways. Good stay overall.
The hotel was easy to find and is next to a couple of fast food places and gas stations which makes it easy to fill up and grab a bite to eat if need be. We had a late check in and the lady was right there to help us. Check is was fast and we were
given our rooms right away. The rooms were decent sized and were clean. The matresses in one of our rooms were both okay, but in the other room one of them was a bit worn and we felt like we were rolling to the middle all the time. The pillows were very fluffy, if you like that it's a good thing, if you don't you may want to bring your own. The only real complaint was that while the breakfast area was nice and well stocked and even had a nice tv to watch while you enjoyed breakfast the chairs around the tables were falling apart. Some were very wobbly and you felt a little unsteady at times. Overall, a good hotel and would stay again.
The location was perfect, was visiting relatives near
by yes would stay there again. Having the refrigator in the room was great especially being
diabetic to keep insulin cold and juice handy.
I was given the hotel as a reference from my relative.
