The price was reasonable for just needing a decent bed and quiet. It wasn’t fancy, but rooms were recently cosmetically updated and clean, beds were comfortable, and staff was nice.

Dont let the nice photos fool you. The room looks nice and clean and inviting we even went in got comfortable took a shower lay down to watch television get back up to use the restroom turn the light on in the restroom was infested with roaches not cockroaches regular roaches the staff was so rude and mean they were Prejudiced and they only returned half of the money and I was only there for 1 hour I DONT RECOMMEND STAYING HEAR UNLESS YOU WANT TO TAKE UNWANTED GUEST HOME

Drunken party next door keep me up most of the night. 5:30 AM guy was laying on his horn right outside my door. The AC/heater smelled of smoke. Guessing it hadn’t been turned to heat in a few months and it was a cold night.

The motel is old. There was a laminate floor in my room, but it still smelled a bit musty. That must have been the air conditioner. The sink had repaired cracks in it. The tub/shower had some areas where the porcelain came off. The bed was comfortable. The desk clerk was helpful. He must be the owner because he checked me in at night and was there bright and early the next morning. So it boils down to whether you want top notch accommodations or just an inexpensive place to stay while passing through. The breakfast consisted of cereal, bagels, apples, clementines(?), juice, etc. There were no waffles or any hot solid food (if you don't count toasting the bagels).

the outlet in the bathroom where the hairdryer was plugged in was not working, (lucky my wife had hers with us). the free breakfast was cereal, bread, coffee, juice, and milk.

Hello Orbitz I have called you re this complete disaster, and have not been able to get a person; I have also written you several times but no response from Orbitz In short when I arrived last Tue 19 April 21017 at RR Bloom IL with my prepaid O reservation... the manager owner woman said I needed to pay more money NOW (MORE like additional cash); I said NO; we discussed her request; then she threw a long 1 minute temper tantrum; she had a fit, she yelled and screamed and told me how angry she was... and so forth...I thought it quite unprofessional; Then she called the police and I was asked to leave the motel; I did leave; there was little choice the officer Parsley said LEAVE or I arrest you and you go to jail; it was terrible; I need some O reaction from you all, plz Like a Vice Presidents response with positive suggestions for as solution; thx bye Nik ;

Nice clean room right off the interstate. Gas station right next door and plenty of restaurants near by

They like to gripe! They put a 350 lb man on the 2nd floor and then called on the phone 10 minutes after we got there to tell us we were making too much noise. Duh! We're unpacking. Then we parked in the wrong place when leaving and the entire family of owners, one-by-one, came and yelled at us for it. I don't think they like owning a motel.

Nice staff but had serious bed bug problem. I woke up around 1 am and did not get sleep after that because of bed bug itch. Then I had to sleep over the bedding and felt a bit cold.

The ac barely worked. It was set at 70 & the actual temp was more like 75-77. The carpet felt wet and sticky all the time. I checked out a day early even thought I had to eat the price for the last night.

Ants crawling all over my room l. However, the staff were very kind and handled the situation very maturely.

It was a lovely stay. We were here for Thanksgiving and just needed some where to sleep. It was close to our family. The room had clean towels and sheets just needs a deep clean to get the walls cleaner. The staff that I dealt with from the beginning to end we're all friendly and had smiles.

Managers were great, but-- room marginal, bugs, door, well used bed all needed help.

Great staff Very helpful Good location for food service Clean and comfortable

Fair enough price for the value received Also comfortable room to escape the heat wave What was really nice was i did not have to drive anywhere for supplies Subway on one side & Circle K on the other Also McDonald's across the street

Great experience for 2 night short stay for out of town business trip. Would recommend to others.

Just fine. I was looking for a quick hotel that was cheap and close to the highway. This for the bill.

Room was clean and well maintained. Staff friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable and shower water flow was good. I would stay here again. Good value for a low price.

Overall it was not a good stay at this hotel. There was lot of thrash and room had a smell. Carpet was not cleaned. It was hard time to stay there.

Just needed cheap place to crash for the night. Quick, clean, easy. Perfect.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your time. Sorry to know about the room smell. We must have missed to refresh the room as we usually do everyday. We are working on improving the breakfast menu with waffles and eggs. Hope to see you on your next trip to Central Illinois. Regards

Dear Guest, Than you for your review. Sorry to hear that the dryer plug didn't work. Usually it just needs to reset. We could have took care of the problem if known. We are working on improving the breakfast. Hope you will give us another chance to serve you in your next trip to Bloomington. Regards
