Nice hotel, clean rooms, near UIUC. You get good breakfast. waffels, bagels, cofee, juices etc. But they keep same thing everyday, no change in items.

Room was nice and cozy, but just hard to modify the temperature of the room.

Other than a blizzard, the stay was positive. I would stay again and advise family and friends that the hotel is clean and safe.

solid hotel with adequate amenities,good breakfast,rooms clean a little outdated. front desk staff helpfiul

The hotel staff are always nice. This is the third time we have stayed here while visiting family. Room was clean and fresh. Would recommend.

not much time spent in hotel but it's fairly clean.


lost reservation, asked for non-smoking, all that was avail was smoking. 2 nights, both filled with police being called due to loud noises and fighting.

For a Sleep Inn the hotel was fine. No amenitites and price was high due to Dad's weekend but not what I would normally spend for that room.

The room was big, clean, and nicely appointed. The breakfast is very basic and didn't have many choices but it was enough to start our day. I would definitely stay there again.

the last time I stayed here I had a conversation with the front desk clerk about bacon in pancakes she remembered me this time when I went to check in again. the staff is very nice. now if the pool would be open on Saturdays when we stay that would be good too. All well we had too full a day to enjoy it anyway. And they had the card reader on the back door fixed. it was nice to park in back and not have to walk around to the front to get in.

I drove past it a couple of times because the outside looks nothing like the picture on the page. Once I got inside I was pleasently supprised. They have obviously done some renovations. The room was verry comfortable and easy to access. Breakfast was decent. Coffee was weak but it was available all day so drink up! Front desk personel were verry plesent and smileing. Down side the pool was closed the one full day we were there so we didn't get to swim, the cable cut out from time to time, and there are no places to swipe your room card to get in the other entrances after they get locked for the night so you have to walk around to the front door.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by the front desk. The service was friendly and professional. The entrance was clean and welcoming. The room was nice, but the hotel could use some renovating. Overall the stay was comfortable and adequate for my needs.

The location was close to the interstate and the staff was friendly

The hotel was close to the interstate and the staff was friendly and helpful.

This is a value hotel. For a place to just spend the night, this hotel fills the bill. Staff was pleasant and knowledgable. Continental breakfast was minimal, but okay. No surprises here, either good or bad.

very nice, clean and friendly hotel,easily excessabil from the interstate

The hotel was very clean, the staff was quite friendly, and the location was convenient (only a short drive from shopping and restaurants). The facilities were great too!

We stayed the night before my daughter's graduation. The pool water was cold and somewhat cloudy. The room beds were small but the rooms were clean. Free breakfast was OK. Staff was very friendly.
